How do I keep my RF266AEPN refrigerator with twin cooling, from icing up on the right side. This is a problem that has frequently happened in the summertime , but now, it is happening in the fall. Thi


Did you check the door gasket see if it is gunked up or air is leaking on that side? Have you felt around the door see if cold air escape? If air is escape means you will get icing or frost.

I own a whirlpool refrigerator model G15FVAXB 01. The front of the freezer keeps icing up regardless of the temperature setting. What can I do?


That model number comes up as a deep freezer. If it is icing up near the door only it is a gasket leaking air into the freezer.

Major ice crystals in the freezer section


If the icing is on the back wall in the freezer, the main reason for ice to form will be, if the defrost system is not working. There are 3 main parts to the defrost system:

  1. Timer or Board
  2. Heating element
  3. Bi-metal (sensor)
If any of these parts fail, it won't defrost and icing will occur.

Another reason will be if the evaporator fan motor quits. It will have the same affect as a no defrost condition.

If the icing is everywhere, side walls also, this is usually caused by moisture. This is from air leaking into the cabinet. It could be from the door not closing good, gaps in the door gasket or it could be leaking around the cabinet flange. For gaps in the door seal you can use a hair dryer to straighten it, just be careful not to get the gasket too hot. If the cabinet flange is leaking, some RTV will seal it.

Hi,

It may be leaking but I think more likely is that you have a problem with the defrost system and it is not defrosting properly... that can give the same symptoms as a low charge or leak condition...

My sub-zero refrigorator is icing up on the first


Hello
There could be some other reasons for the ice.
1 bad or cracked door seal,have a look at the door seals.
2 Defrost timer may need to be set longer.
3 T sat set to low or not working properly.

Unit may be low on freon also,causing a lower pressure which would cause a lower tempreture,this occurs with a small leak or a pin hole leak.Once enough freon leaks out it will warm up and no longer work.

You can have a leak check done by a service person.

Maytag freezer icing up


If is just one spot in the whole back wall like snow ball (small) ,the unit is leaking refrigerant and the leak has to be fixed and only after that recharged.But if the back inside the freezer gets all ice up and won't defrost by itself the problem is with the defrost system ,timer ,heaters or defrost terminator.
