Does the control thermastat have anything to do with the freezer on my refrigerator getting cold but not freezing


If you remove the evaporator cover and look at the frost on the evaporator is it fairly even frost from top to bottom? If you don't have frost on the bottom half of your evaporator then you have a freon leak. Do you have a model number for your unit?

Upper portion (frig not cooling properly) Lower portion (freezer) forming ice on #3 setting.


Is it forming ice or frost? It sounds like an automatic defrost problem. If the freezer frosts up it won't circulate enough air up to the fresh food compartment. Try defrosting it manually for 24 hours by shutting it down and leaving the freezer door open. Afterwards, if it resumes normal operation I would bet that there is something faulty in the defrost circuit, i.e., defrost heater not working or defrost control.

Items in freezer on top level have frost on them. It is appearing on top right side (as you face freezer). Long, "furry" frost has formed.

Refrigerator is not very cold. Freezer is not


Our side by side did the same, started because the cooling coils on the bottom (although cleaned regularly), still overworked due to build up of dust and especially pet hair. The heating coil in the freezer compartment which prevents ice buildup in modern (frost-free) units kicks on full time and the compressor can't compensate, thus your perishables start to thaw. Luckily we were still under warranty. hope this helps you at least start diagnosing the problem.

Only freezer works


Hi: When you plugged it in how long did it take for the bottom to warm? If it was a week or two it might be your defrost heater(frost builds where it shouldn't). It's just a wire in a glass tube like a light bulb, and will be fragile after years of service. When the freezer works and the fresh food dosn't it means there is no circulation between the two. Frost will build up where you don't see it, and it's where the air channel is between the freezer and the fresh food. When moving a ref. it usually is the def. heater. The light bulb is isolated from this circuit so it may just be the bulb (the filament got shook) or the switch. Good luck Jeff

Water keeps dripping under the fridge.


In a frost-free refrigerator/freezer the frost that would normally accumulate on the inside wall of the freezer is removed by heaters imbedded in the freezer's walls. Periodically these heaters are turn on to melt the frost which then exits the freezer as liquid water through a drain in bottom. This water accumulated in a pan underneath the refrigerator and is supposed to be removed by evaporation. If the flow of melted frost from the freezer is greater than the evaporation rate in the pan then the pan will overflow and you will get a pool of water on your floor. A bad seal on the freezer door will allow more frost to form inside. Also if you leave the freezer door open a lot you will accumulate more frost. The evaporation rate in the pan can be affected by the ventilation around it. If the vents on the bottom of your refrigerator are clogged with dust it will decrease the evaporate rate in the pan. In addition, many refrigerators have a fan the pulls air around the pan. If this fan has stopped working the evaporation rate in the pan will also decrease.

Maytag model MQU1556AEW, frost-free freezer forms ice in bottom.


I'm not sure if this will help but the freezer that is located on the bottom of my refrigerator started forming ice on the back part where the cold air was supposed to be coming out. I kept hearing a hissing sound like water dripping on a hot surface. I called the repair man in and he had to replace the defrost timer. Once he did that it worked like a charm.

I am not an expert by any means although removing ice from a frost-free freezer is a pain and this took care of the problem for me. Good luck!

Refrigerator not cold


first check your damper door from the freezer to the refrigerator compartment make sure its in the proper position. Then turn off the refrigerator for a few hours until the heavy frost melts away. turn on the refrigerator check the refrigeration cycle, is it working properly, is it going into defrost are the defrost heaters working.

Amana BX22A2W - freezer works, fridge not cooling


Same problem here with an Amana refrigerator with the freezer on the bottom. I removed the back panels and vacuumed dust and cat hair out. The back panel in the freezer was frosted over with ice on the bottom. I removed the shelves and food and used a hairdryer to loosen the panel. The ice maker made it harder to remove the plastic panel so I pulled it back and saw the cooling fins frozen solid. I used the hairdryer to melt the ice and a shop vacuum to collect the water. It works like new again.
