Freezer has ice in it and the fridge isn't cooling

Hello Cass, being that you have a top mount, the vent in the freezer is what circulates air down to the Fresh Food section, making it cool. Here are a few simple troubleshooting tips that may help you resolve this issue:

First check clearances around your refrigerator. There must be adequate space around a refrigerator with a static condenser so that air can circulate properly. Proper clearances include 1" at the back and 3" on top of the refrigerator.

Examine your doors. If the doors have been opened too often or for too long, this may have allowed warm air to enter the refrigerator. Make sure to shut the door completely and be sure not to keep the door open for too long. Even leaving a door slightly open can allow too much warm air intake. Make sure refrigerator is level and keep food and containers from blocking the door closing.

Check the door seal. You do this by placing a dollar bill between the body of the refrigerator or freezer and close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet, double check to see if the door is being blocked by anything that may be stopping it from closing. If nothing is stopping the door from closing then replace the gasket.

Check to see if the condenser is dirty. A dirty condenser cannot release heat efficiently into the surrounding air. Cleaning the condenser may be necessary, more if you have animals in the house. If you have condenser coils, they should be wiped occasionally with a damp cloth to remove accumulated dust. The condenser coils should be wiped occasionally with a damp cloth to remove accumulated dust.
Check for any obstructions to the vent to ensure proper air flow. If the vent is blocked, the air in the refrigerator will not get cool.

I recommend to double check the freezer control. If the freezer control is set too warm, set freezer control to a colder setting and allow 24 hours for temperature to stabilize.

If these assessment measures prove to be ineffective, I would strongly suggest contacting an authorized service technician who would be better able to assist you in the diagnosis and repair of your unit. You can often locate an experienced technician in your area by going to the manufacturer website.

I Have an Electrolux frost free freezer standup model (FFU17FC5CWF). I bought it new over 5-6 years ago (warranty is gone now). THe back is closed but it suddenly is running warmer on sides & back than...

Hello, Your freezer normally goes into a defrost cycle every 6-12 hours depending on manufacturers specifications. If the freezer is going out of its defrost cycle timeing sequence one of the first parts that would be checked would be the defrost timer which is shown on this diagram as part number 23 click this link usually though if you are feeling the sides of the cabinet and they are getting warm this is a sign that the compressor is not cooling in this second diagram I do see a fan motor but the schematic does not give the motors location. Usually the compressor does have a fan or a large condenser path that the refrigerant travels through in which it is cooled by either one of these two mentioned. I would first open the freezer door and listen if you can hear a fan running if not then that would most likely be the issue. The compressor has to be able to cool if it cannot then the lines that travel through the cabinet will start to heat up. If you have any further questions message me back Thanks Rick
p.s motor is shown in this diagram as part number 13 and at the most expensive appliance parts which is sears the motor sells for 45.85 the defrost timer sells for 27.00 if you are looking for a repair service which state or area do you currently reside I personally repair in both Rhode Island and Massachuesetts but if you are not in this area I can help you to locate an appliance repair company. Thanks I await your reply Rick

The coil in the freezer section keeps freezing up every week or so

Look for seal issues, too much moisture is in the air. Another common cause is accessing the freezer too often, but usually a seal is letting room air in.

Ice forming in bottom of freezer

Is the temperature too low? Check with a thermometer.
Does the door seal work efficiently? Check the seal for hard frozen lumps.

Since this morning my fridge has been very loud and is getting louder. It sounds like the fan to me as its not constant and it stops when I open the door. Is it the fan? Is this something I fix this...

I remember happening to us many years ago. The cause was accumulated dirt and loose insulation material interfering with the fan blades. The solution was to unplug the refrigerator from the wall outlet, move the unit to enable reach from the back, unscrew the screws holding the back cover located at the bottom area (made of kind of cardboard), with the vacuum cleaner thin long nose attachment clean anything that looks dirty the best you can reach. Look for the fan and check nothing is interfering with it. Clean it, use a thin brush the best you can. Be careful not to hurt yourself scratching a finger or break anything bumping around cleaning. Some refrigerators design allows to reach the condenser panel (kind of a radiator or grilled looking component), if you can clean that too it will get your unit working efficiency back to maximum.

Another cause for noise could be the freezer fan hitting frozen condensate caused when the door gasket is deteriorated or not sealing well (humidity seeps in and freezes interfering with the fan operation). While you are at it look for any freezer stuff (content) sticking into the freezer fan cover and touching the fan, that may make noise too. Good luck.

Build-up of soft ice all over in the freezer

Do a manual defrost of the unit. Unplug it.. empty the freezer and place a fan b l o w i n g into the freezer for about 2 hours.
After the manual defrost return the unit to normal service.

If the soft build up of ice shows up again take a very hard look at the door seals. Look for tears.. gaps or any place the gasket is no longer attached to door face

This unit should defrost about every 10 hours. If it does not automatically defrost,,,, doing a manual defrost will only keep the unit going if you repeat the manual defrosting drill every 2 - 3 days.

If it just never goes into the automatic defrost cycle at all, the control board could have failed. PN: W10116216

A failed defrost heating element can also cause this. Item 10 this link:

Worried mother

MOM! When you say" Front Panel Door Seperates". Do you mean the front PLASTIC escuteon, or door cover? There is no seal as such like a gasket. The metal shield,or screen that you look through into your microwave is the seal. A microwave,( if it could be seen) is about the diameter of a pencil. It is neither gas, or liquid thus it cannot squeeze through openings smaller than it's diameter. So! the small openings or holes (That you look through) in the front screen of your microwave door are seen as solid metal by a microwave and the microwave is reflected back into the cavity. The only safety issue is damage to the screen.
