SOURCE: Water Dispenser Freezing Up

I would suggest that you turn the fridge temp up so that you are not cooling the fridge too much. However I suspect that you have a problem with your freezer section and the airflow is going in at the bottom of the fridge and not feeding in from the top. If you are competent I would suggest removing the back panel (lower internal) on the freezer section and checking that the evaporator coil (finned aluminium) is clear of ice. If you see an ice formation then you probably have a defrost heater out. If you defrost the unit then it will temporarily sort out the problem but I would suggest getting a fridge guy if your wife is getting mad already.
Hope this is of some if limited help.

SOURCE: kenmore colspot freezer drain line keeps freezing

Hi, The defrost drain behind the rear freezer panel is plugged. Remove the rear panel and clear the ice away from the drain. Then you will need to flush the drain hole with hot water to make sure it is open.
Some models require an after market drain heat kit.
Please get me your model # and I can look this up to let you know if you need that heat kit.

Thanks
Vic

Freezer will not freeze ice ceam


Before you go any further it is important that you check for freezer temps. Yes, you have frozen items but remember that water freezes at 32 degrees and many items will get hard at that temp. And also remember that the lower the temp the longer frozen items will keep.

But ice cream needs proper freezer temps close to zero degrees. Use a digital thermostat and check for your freezer temp - bet it it is no where near zero. I had the same problem and attributed it to the fact that I was not using a name brand ice cream!!!! I was wrong ! LOL.

Lfx25971 will not dispense water


My water dispensor INSIDE the door froze up.... GE
I payed a repair guy $75 to use MY BLOWDRYER to "thaw" the frozen water line INSIDE the freezer door (below the water dispenser).

He said anytime the frozen food extends over the freezer shelf and touches the freezer door for a long enough period of time, the water line inside the door FREEZES!!

PREVENTION: "Keep some airspace between the door and frozen food."

Can't get water at the dispenser on a GE sxs


GSS25QMFC I beleive is manufactured by GE. The line could definitely be frozen. 99% of refrigerators you cannot get into the doors. They are glued together and filled with spray in insulation. There is no easy way to do it. You can try a hair dryer or just let the fridge sit for 24 hours turned off with the doors open. Another place to check for a freeze up is in the rear of the refrig section. Most refrigerators run the line in the refrigerator to chill the water and if your refrig section gets too cold they can freeze in there. Most of the time refrigerators have a disconnect in the water line at the bottom corner of the freezer door where it goes through the hinge. You might have to yank off the lower grill to see it, but you can sometimes disconnect it there and let water run out. Good Luck

This is a drawback of most mini-fridges. Start by defrosting everything. Then fill ice cube trays with water and keep lowering the setting until the water freezes. Just go a little lower, no more. Fridge should not freeze food. If the fridge stays closed all the time food will freeze. Also if the freezer element gets ice buildup it must be defrosted. Not automatic like home fridge. Most kids today weren't born when the last fridges that had to be defrosted were in service.

Water dispenser suddenly not dispensing water


Remove the bottom kick plate . Follow the plastic line about 6" and you'll find a connector . Push in on one end of the connector and at the same time , pull the line out . Close the door and press for water . If no water comes out of the disconnented line , the water valve is probably bad . If water does come out , the line inside the freezer door is frozen . If this turns out to be so , you can lower the freezer temp for maybe days , or , put the food on the door, inside the freezer , tape the light switch down ( to keep the lite off and fan running ) and tape plastic over the freezer door opening so the freezer will continue to work . Reinstall the line back into the connector by pushing the hose firmly into place . Leave the freezer door open for maybe 1 or 2 days for thawing out , going by ocassionally and pressing the water dispensor . Important : lower the freezer temperature slightly to keep line from freezing again . ONLY CHANGE THE FILTER WHEN WATER FLOW SLOWS OR ICE CUBES GET SMALL . The change filter lite comes on by the amount of times water dispensor is used and to make money for the vendor .

Drain in the freezer keeps freezing up and causes water to freeze up in the bottom of the freezer


If this is anything but a GE fridge then you can take a regular electrical wire and strip it of the plastic shielding. Next twist one end around the heater that runs under the evaporator above the drain hole. Make sure you have enough wire to extend it about 1-2in into the drain hole.
Now when it goes through a defrost cycle the heat traveling down the wire will keep the hole defrosted.
