Condensation in fridge


How long does it take for the condensation to build up and freeze the fan?

When was the last time you defrosted the fridge (unplug, open all doors for 12 + hours)?

If you have not defrosted the fridge recently, you may have blockage that is preventing a drain from allowing condensation to escape.

Dometic refrigerator Model # rm2610


Well first of all solution # 1 pertains to household refridgerators..RV models have no fan inside maybe outside,But I would find out if it gets cold/freezes with 120 volt and or LP(propane) and look trrough the internet and download your model service manual.

Kenmore refrigerator stop cooling but fan working


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.


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.

American stytle samsung f/freezer iceing up on fridge section


Sounds to me like a bad defrost control or a clogged drain line to remove the water after the defrost cycle has ended so the water just freezes again!

Water drips from bottom of fridge. It happens


look in the bottom of the inside of the freezer, you probably will see ice buildup.You have to clear the drain which is stopped up at the bottom of the panel that covers the freezer evaporator.Every 8 hours the drain receives water from the auto defrost and needs to go in the drain, if drain is stopped up it freezes and eventually runs out the front

GE Profile TCC18 Refridgerator freezes Up regularly.


I had the same problem. I changed the defrost thermostat and that has solved the problem. Just to make sure the problem is not recurring I drilled a small hole in the back of the plastic drain(behind the fridge) so that I can put a long screw driver inside to determine if there is any ice build up. None so far after 3 weeks.

Control board has gone bad....

What happens is the defrost is controlled electronically from a circuit board, when this goes bad, the freezer quits defrosting, and freezes the fans that circulate air through the fridge side of things.

To check this, unplug the entire fridge, leave the freezer open, wait for it to defrost a bit, if this causes the fridge to start cooling again when you plug it back in, then its the defrost. You should also see ice crystals on the back of the freezer just under the icemaker.
