My refrigerator stopped running this morning. There is a lot of ice on the back wall of the freezer. The manual reads that the refrigerator will turn itself off while defrosting. Could this be the problem.

Freezer side not cold enough, similar temperature as Refrigerator side


It could be many things. My first guess would be the defrost. The coil that gets cold in your freezer builds ice on it and the only way to get the ice off is to run a heater near the coil long enough for the ice to melt. All freezers have something built in to defrost and domestic are typically just an electric heater on a timer. When your freezer stops working again, you may want to pull open the panel of your freezer and see if your coil (a heat exchanger that probably looks a lot like your car radiator) is covered in ice. If it is, it could be the timer or the actual heater that is bad.

How do I defrost my frozen freezer?


the defrost circuitry is not defrosting the unit due to a defectice defrost heater,thermostat or adc control,shut it off and let it defrost manually or use a hand held hair dryer to assist in the manual defrost,then remove the inside back wall cover in the freezer in there you will find the defrost heater and thermostat,have towels handy as when you manually defrost it you will have a lot of drainage and the catch pan in the back that catches this water will most likely overflow

GE Refrigerator/Freezer not cooling


Loss of coldness is common with compressor related problems....relay and overload(simple fix), loss/leak of refridgerant(need a cert. tech). need to check the compressor and see if its running....do this by pulling the unit out and removing the back panel, place your hand on the compressor and see if it feels like its running....if not probably just a relay, if it is running, could be a more serious problem dealing with sealed system.

Refrigerator is not cold,freezer is frosting up


Defrost system failure is correct. It could be the evaporator fan, timer, heater. You can manually defrost with a hair dryer which will give you a couple of days until a service tech can determine which part has failed. Remember, there is a lot of ice behind the freezer back wall around the cooling coils. You can only see the tip of the iceburg.

Refergirator not cooling


Defrost system failure.

Defrost system: Freezer fan, Defrost timer, Heater, Thermostat. If any one of these are bad the coils in the freezer will get clogged with ice and not allow the cold air to circulate over to the ref. side.

Ice/frost build up on the back wall of the freezer is an indication of this problem. You can manually defrost with a hair dryer which will give you a couple of days before it starts iceing up again. Remember, the ice you see on the back wall is just the tip of the iceburg, there is a lot more on the coils behind that wall.

Kenmore fridge and freezer not cooling


Check to see if there is any ice built up on the back wall of the freezer. If so thaw the ice and take the back wall out of the freezer. next check to see if the fan is running in the freezer (evaporator fan) This fan is what circulates the air from the freezer to the fridge. If it does run then you have a defrost problem (if ice is on the coils and back wall). Then replace defrost timer, heater, and thermostat.

Warm fridge, cold freezer


If frost in back wall of freezer it's not defrosting. This will keep cold air from getting to refig,. section. It may require a main board replacement. Or a defrost control replacement.
