SOURCE: freezer no frost

This is probably due to the failure of defrost timer or the heating coil..Try this
1)The defrost timer is sometimes found behind the front grill of the refrigerator. It may also be found behind a cover plate inside the refrigerator or freezer, in the temperature control console, or behind the refrigerator near the compressor.

The timer is usually held in place with one or more screws. Remove the screws and gently pull the timer out far enough to disconnect the wiring connector.

Locate the timer switch and turn it clockwise until you hear it click. One click and the refrigerator shuts off = defrost mode, second click the compressor and fans come back on = run/cooling mode.
2)If this doesnt work then Test the heating element for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading somewhere between zero and infinity. Because of the number of different elements we cannot tell what your reading should be, but we can be certain of what it shouldn't be. If the reading is zero or infinity the heating element is definitely bad and should be replaced. Proper power ( careful!! ) to the heating element ( 110-120 volts AC ) and the defrost heater does not come on = bad defrost heater.

SOURCE: Frost build up...refrigerator not cooling

hi,
your condenser fan may have gotten stopped up with ice. You can try to open the freezer door and push the door buttons while the compressor is running and you should be able to hear the fan running in the freezer compartment. If not you can try to completely defrost the machine by unplugging it and letting it sit for a day, you can speed that up by putting a hair dryer on low and point it at the cold air outlets. If it does it the next day you can pull the condenser fan. usually the whole back plate in the freezer has to come out and then the fan is right there. try spinning the blades by hand , should turn easy, you can try oiling it but it should be replaced, you can order it at the appliance store, take it with you. be careful while you have that inner cover off as the coils are sharp and fragile.
good luck
J

GE refrigerator model PSS27MGMBB Freezer is not working


Open the freezer door and look at the back wall. If there is frost on the back wall, you have a defrost problem, which means air cannot circulate over the cooling coils located behind the freezers back wall. You will have to remove the back wall and melt all the frost with a hair blower, then replace the defrost heater. (part number WR51X10055) . This is assuming that the fan by the compressor and the one inside the freezer are working.

First you need to see if the venting from fzr to refrig is blocked......then check to see if there's frost on back wall of fzr. Frost would mean defrost heater is not working. *** It helps a lot also to know which model & serial you have. Those numbers can be found inside the refrigerator section on the side wall or ceiling on a tag.

Normally it is the temperature of the refrigerator that shows the first sign of a problem because the refrigerator is cooled by air from the freezer. Check the back wall of the freezer for signs of frost. If there is frost on the back wall you have a defrost system problem.

The fridge section of my LG GRB218JUDA has stopped working and the temperature indicator reads Err FF. Can you help


Side by side and other refrigerators are controlled or cooled by one system. Look to the freezer side for frost buildup on the back wall of the freezer. Frost buildup on the back wall of the freezer stops the air that cools the refrigerator from circulating. Frost on the back wall indicates a problem in the defrost circuit related to the timing device, heaters or defrost thermostat.

Freezer has layer of frost on back wall - refrigerator not working


Defrost circuit problem, the snow means that your freezer coil is not being automatically defrosted. This could be a problem with the defrost heaters or defrost timer. Also in the newer models a module
controls this operation. Call for service. Removing ice or snow from the back wall is not the solution. The coil behind the back wall is also frozen and no air is circulating.
