Check your filters inside the furnace, replace if needed. Then check to ensure that the fan is running inside the furnace. If these two things dont fix the problems, I would imagine you have low refrigerant issues. In that case you should call a service company.

Hope this helps ya please rate me.

Hi there I ve got a Samsung fridge model RL34SCSW1 my freezer is working fine it's just the fridge bit is not cooling?


Good day, please check at the back, at the bottom where the compressor is located for the pencil dryer(as in photo). Get a nice firm grip on it just be careful and feel the temp if it's cold or one side is hot and the other side cold the dryer is block. Otherwise feel the thickest pipe running into the compressor it should be cold if the fridge has been running for a while and the thin copper pipe existing the compressor should be hot. If the thin pipe is freezing up with a thick layer of ice and the dryer as some med-temp then there's a gas leak. If the thin copper pipe is very hot and the dryer has no temp then there's a blockage but if the thin copper pipe feels med-temp and the thick copper pipe more or less the same but a bit cooler the compressor is not pumping also feel if the compressor is running. If dryer as a warmth temp and the thin copper pipe is hot and the thick one very cold(when tipping your finger on your tongue and pressing it against the pipe your finger should stick a bit) if all checks out then it's the thermostat switching the compressor off at the rong temp.

Personal opinion in this case I believe it's a blocked dryer or gas leakage.

Regards

First turn off the breaker to the unit. Then disconnect the wires from the compressor making sure you right down which wire goes to which terminal. Using an ohmmeter place one lead on any copper pipe inside the unit. put the other lead on the terminals in the compressor one at a time. If you have continuity from any terminal then the compressor is shorted to ground. the other method is to record the readings across each terminals (run, start and common) the two lower readings should equal the higher reading. If not then the compressor is either internally shorted or open.

Cold water line frozen going into washing machine


If you can find the frozen section and it is easily visible, you should try to defrost it with a hair dryer. The problem will be finding it. It is likely behind sheetrock. If that is the case, then just raise the thermostat and keep the door open to allow for circulation of air in the room to defrost it. Something else you can do if you have an area sensitive to freezing in the house, is find a faucet near the washer and let the water run just a little (drip) to keep the water moving during deep frosts.

Water Pooling & Freezing


Assuming your fridge has a defrost cycle ( I.e. is a frost free model), you are probably suffering a blocked drain hole or pipe, leading to the top of the condenser or a tray nearby, where the frost water can evaporate.
The pipe can block with food or a mould plug, leading to water retention that freezes and further blocks the drain. the water is produced when a heater switches on in defrost mode and thaws the internal or external ice build up and, with nowhere for it to go it will pool on the bottom and may, when in defrost mode, run out onto the floor.
With frost free fridges/freezers, there is a drain outlet, usually hidden behind a removable panel inside the fridge/freezer compartment or, a drain hole near the bottom. If there is a drain pipe as well, access is usually from the rear base of the machine. The pipe is usually removable and can be cleaned out but prepare for some water to escape. An ice block in the drainage hole can be thawed using a hair dryer BUT GENTLY, so as not to warp the plastic inners of the fridge.

Water Dispenser Temperature Control/switch-off


Not on regular models. Most models have a water tank in the fridge compartment which makes the water temperature to stay just above freezing temperature.

Wanna a play with your unit. Then remove the tank and just add two pipe ends together. Eliminating the tank. Then you should get room temperature water after about 5 seconds of cold water. Be careful just connecting the two ends of pipe after removing tank might lead to freezing pipes if your fridge temperature is close to freezing temp.

My father has an Electrlux ER 78311 fridge/freezer. It started icing up inside fridge and top of freezer. After we deiced it, it stopped working altogether. Still makes a noise as though it's working....


Did you deice totally or just the ice you saw. To properly deice the freezer section you have to remove the panel on the back of the freezer section and using a hair dryer remove all frost build up on the evap. coils. The most common cause of this problem in these models is the defrost t-stat going bad. Install a new defrost t-stat located on the coils and you will be good to go again. Hope this helps.

My GE refridge model GSS20DBMB WW freezer coils keep freezing up! I have replaced the door seals as an appliance center recommended. However, It did stop it from freezing up! we have to use a hair dryer...


Something has gone wrong with the defrost system. It could involve the defrost timer, the evaporator heater, or some of the wiring.

This problem would take some troubleshooting that most do-it-yourselfers would likely not be able to do.

Bottom freezer


It may be that the door was completely closed at some time this will cause this fault, or you have a defrost sensor fault. Regards Advisor
