Fridge getting warm, defost not properly working...

The freezer part is not defrosting correctly and ice is accumulating. The fridge part is just not as cold as it used to be. Last week I started to notice the fridge part getting some water leaked inside of it.

What do I do? How do I fix this problem? I mean, I'm afraid to eat my food without getting sick, it's going to spoil.

    Also noticed there is little to no cold air coming into the fridge part at all now.

Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.

  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.

This is a twin cool unit. refrigerator works independently from freezer unless compressor failure so compressor is not the problem. you may have a defrost problem or an evaporator fan failure in the freezer easy way to check open door hold the door switch and listen for fan draft if you hear it is good is not you have a bad fan or a bad door switch. the refrigerator has a defrost problem usually is the sensor you try that the other thing can be the heating element but rarely goes bad.

Its defrost problem.--------- When you open the freezer door, then ice starts getting defrosted, because outside temperature is warm and due to that inside ice gets bit melted.--------- -------------- The working procedure of this unit is as follows: --- The compressor starts then it cools the freezer section. When the freezer reaches its cooling level the defrost cycle starts functioning. In this cycle the fan in the freezer section starts running and the cool air in the freezer section is passed to the fridge section and the fridge section gets cold. The air from freezer to refrigerator passes from the section, in that section the damper is located. ----------- The damper is operated by a motor.Its a complete damper assembly with motor included in it.--The damper has door.Which closes and open with the help of motor.In your case the damper door is blocked by ice, because your refrigerator is not defrosting.But when you open the freezer door, the inside ice gets bit warm and it starts melting and this lets the fridge section get cool.------------------- In this case you will have to manually defrost the ice and inspect, if the problem solves.For manual defrost procedure, click the link below:-------- Click this below for more detail:--- http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/06/refrigerator-is-not-cooling-properly.html ----------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Freezer works fine on my Maytag side-by-side refrigerator, but refrigerator is not cold enough, there is is ice accumulated inside the vent between the freezer and the frig., specially on humid days.


Defrost your fridge with a blowdryer in the freezer after you remove the freezer back panel. Get the ice out of your exhaust pipe going to fridge. Your evaporator fan should be running, either your defrost heater is bad or your defrost thermostat is bad. I ussually replace both. Good luck rate me if I am correct.
