My fridge freezer is not working properly. the freezer is working but the food in the fridge is not cold enough

Hard to say without more info. Often this is a problem with it not defrosting properly. Many times the timer that triggers the defrost cycle simply breaks. There is usually a way to manually trigger it (google your fridge model and defrost timer). If you do that several times it should melt enough ice to get the air flowing again. If it works you can probably find directions on how to replace the part yourself and see if you want to tackle.

Also worth noting that on newer fridges you don't necessarily see the ice.

Defroster not working

The WR51X322 Defrost Heater Assembly

could be burned out in your model. Can you look inside the fresh food section and find the model number for me. The answer to the problem on your model depends on having the correct model number so I don't miss other parts that may cause a defrost failure. I know you said Monogram Side by Side but that does not tell me for sure what the Model Number on your refrigerator is. If your model is like the models in the GE Monogram Refrigerator Service Manual the I can have an idea of those parts. Those models have the defrost controls as part of their motherboard and that board does not fail at least in the defrost part of the board. defrost very often. You may need to also test or replace the WR50X10088 Defrost Thermostat I will be here should you have questions Thanks Sea Breeze

the evaporator may be froze over with ice..remove this rear panel and if ice or frost is covering evap..use a hair dryer to defrost the coils. this will give you temp service...there still will be the problem that caused it to freeze up and will continue until repaired. its possible the defrost thermostat is bad or the heater or even the defrost control....Bruce Denton

I have a kenmore frost free freezer. the model number is 253.26432100. please tell me how to initiate a defrost check on this type of freezer. it has a digital thermostat and no manual timer that you can...


You cannot manually initiate a defrost check on this unit because this is an automatic self defrost cycling fridge/freezer.

There is no way to start a manual defrost check. Manual defrost can be done disconnecting the power plug from main overnight. In that case check the drain pan located at the bottom of the unit before defrost is done.

If there is ice buildup on condenser coil, then defrost system is malfunctioning.

In that case the parts in the defrost system must be tested.

Here temporary link to user manual.

If that does not work, use this link.

Here link to part list and diagram.

The unit freezes up then don't work

OK I'm looking over the manual and as long as the model number is correct RS2630SH you may have only one of three things causing this. I needing to go to another website to confirm the type defrost system yours has. I will send you a manual when I return. It appears that you have a higher possibility of a defrost heater or defrost thermostat defective.I am getting mixed answers on a decision of a defrost control board. Just make sure your model number does not have a different number or letter missing. I will send as much as I can find on your model but checking the defrost heater and defrost thermostat would be the first thing to do. Unplug refrigerator and remove contents of the freezer rear wall. we need to use a meter to check continuity through the defrost heater. If one is bad replace both defrost heater part number DA47-00154A and defrost thermostat part number DA47-10160F.
One model came with a defrost control board but I just cannot find one on that model number so the motherboard controls defrost. I will send manual shortly. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Samsung twin door fridge water leaking onto floor

I have a Samsung side by side - model RS253BAWW.

Water was leaking onto floor from main refrigerator, not freezer. It was determined to be a blocked defrost drain.

The repair technician removed the trays and food from fridge, remove the screws from the panel at back, disconnected everything and remove panel.
The stainless tray at bottom of fridge as well as panel itself had solid ice blockage.

He placed panel in sink and used something similar to a blow dryer with narrow hose on it to defrost both the panel and drain in fridge. Took him maybe 15 minutes and charged $99 total for the visit.

In future I will do this myself now that I know how but thought it may be useful information to others who are having similar problems.
