Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Ice buildup in bottom of freezer--puddle of water on floor


this sounds like your freezer is operating properly, except that the drainage of the water when going through the defrosting mode is not draining properly, pooling on the bottom of the freezer and then freezing. Check the drainage hose for the defrost in the lower pan. I would remove everything, place in ice chest, let the unit completely thaw out and then inspect. I hope this is beneficial.

Freezer stopped working.


It might be the compressor making the noise.If it is,the compressor will start/stop frequently.This means that it is tripping on overload due to mechanical damage.Only way to solve this prolem is to replace the compressor (if the freezer is still in a good condition).

The freezer appears to be thawing even when shut all day.


If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

Freezer is thawing - water dripping -


Hi, if the clicking noise is coming from the back, it is the relay on the compressor. It os possible that the compressor is bad but, most common it is the relay.
Is this under 5 years old? (warranty)
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Refridgerator and freezer stop cooling


inspect first the condenser at the rear or at the bottom back of the freezer. see if it is full of dirt and trash.
if it is, clean it and it could just be the problem.

if not, then observe the unit further, adjust the thermostat first to the coolest setting just to eliminate the problem with the thermostat.

keep me posted.

Frig working, freezer stops working, then starts working again


The computer control circuit board was found to have a burned out circuit. The board is on the lower back side behind a panel, easy to replace. Just need the proper model number to order the board.

Freezer door not sealing


Probably a defective defrost timer. Try to find the timer. It is usually underneat in the back. When you find it turn the knob slowly click by click. (You may need a screwdriver or knife) turn just until the compressor stops. Let it stay in defrost for about 1/2 hour. turn the knob until the compressor starts let it cool down several hours. Then do it again. If this solves the problem replace the timer. While you are waiting to do this Defrost it at least twice a day by turning the knob.
