The freezer randomly warms up, sometimes up to 24 degrees then will drop back down to zero. It is making a clicking noise but not sure if that's related to the warming-up issue. The food does have frost...


Hi!!

I think the clicking noise behind the unit comes from the compressor bimetal thermal protection, which can be caused by the condenser fan not worikng (the small fan on the back bottom of the unit) and/or dirty/clogged condenser.(the coil in front of the fan)

Also check:

Temp. control knobs,

Small fan in freezer, it should start working after opening the freezer door for a couple of minutes. If it does not start, use a pen or pencil to turn the blades, if it kick in, replace motor.

Remove freezer back panel (where the little fan is) and check for iced evaporator coil, if so, unplug unit and use a heat gun or hair dryer to melt ice, make sure the air duct going to the fridge is clear.

Once this is done, restart unit

Keep me posted!! Rate this post!!!

Freezer Defrosts on its own


Yes it is supposed to. Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


If it seems to defrost too long and start thawing the contents then the defrost thermsotat may be bad. It's purpose is to stop the defrost heater when the temp reaches around 32 degrees. If it doesn't work the heater will stay on for the entire defrost cycle and possible melt things.
Check here for how to check it and where it is. http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php

Kenmore Elite Refrigerator Trio display panel read ER IF and everything seems to be melting or thawing. Not making ice and water is running from door where the ice seems to be melting? HELP! My freezer...


This is an error code for the icemaker fan motor.
If the control does not see a signal coming back from the fan motor you will get this error code.
Please see the image below from the service manual that explains the ER IF error code.

http://media.fotki.com/1_p,wkbwtkdqbqkgrkkxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/ktfgsrbbdxktrrwffdr/1/1303472/5961857/image18067img-or.jpg

The ER IF code indicates a failure of the icing fan.

You may notice slower ice production but the other fans should be okay.

You can select the ultra ice option and see if the fan toggles on.

The fan or the control is bad.

Freezer not freezing


Because it stopped cooling so fast, over night, I would make sure the compressor is running and the condenser fan motor that sits next to it.

Ice maker freezes Whirlpool gold


try to remove all the ice in the bucket first and start all over again. the first bundle of ice could be the one making the problem. and then check the cold air vent towards the ice bucket. there should be cold air blowing to it to maintain the temperature in order for the ice not to melt.

after removing all the ice and inspecting if there is cool air coming out towards the ice bucket. let it run and observe it.


tnx 4 using fixya,

Freezer thawing and refreezing


The freezer is supposed to thaw at least everyday. Only, you usually kant tell because it doesn't do it long enough to melt the food so you don't notice it. You have a couple of components to check here. 1 is the defrost timer, which unless it has been changed recently, has the same pre determined defrost time. So you would have noticed by now. Next is the defrost termination switch. If you have excess ice on the evaporator, this will make the defrost longer than before. Unless the switch is going bad causing the defrost to go extra long, there is an excess amount of ice that is more than usual. Bad door seal will cause this. A slightly low freon charge. And a thermostat that is malfunctioning, causing the freezer to run continuously, will make excess ice buildup in the freezer. I would make sure the kids aren't leaving the door open and the gaskets are good. If not the case, call a repairman.
