My husband opened the freezer and it was thawing. I looked at the control panel and the freezer was at 21' and the top section was at 58'. Why? I couldn't reset it.

    My husband turned off the power and the freezer reset when the power was turned on. I put the top on turbo cool. It doesn't sound like the fan is on. It isn't cold. I'll wait and see.

Apparently, one can't put something tall in front of the ventilation system as it blocks the cold air from coming in. I moved the grapefruit juice container away from the vents and set the thermostat on turbo and this morning it was very cool and working just fine. Sometimes a little common sense goes a long way. Thanks for the shoulder to lean on. Sherrill

The freezer is fine but the lower fridge is at 58 f

There is ice build up blocking air flow to the refridgerator compartment. Put everything in a cooler, turn fridgfe off, thaw OVERNIGHT with BOTH DOORS PROPED OPEN and then rinse freezer with a liter(big slam) of water. Let sit 5 minutes and pull bottom drain pan . Empty it. IF YOU RUSH THIS THEN The internal ventalation will still be blocked. 12 hour thaw minimum even with doors open.

Whirlpool etowsrxmq03-- back wall of freezer is

Good day,
Yes that is normal. It is going thru one of it's automatic defrost cycles to melt off excess frost building on the cooling coil mounted behind the rear panel in the freezer section.
The red glow is the heater doing it's job. It does this for a short period of time, and causes the rear panel to become somewhat warm, but only for a short period.

It only occurs about once a day randomly, and lasts only 21 minutes, so the odds of seeing it are rare.

Fridigaire top freezer has stopped cooling

It could be frosted up or the drain plugged which would cut off the air flow to refrig section. If you see any frost or ice anywhere empty the unit and let it set with doors open 24 hrs to thaw. Or take the inner panel out of the freezer to see where the blockage is. If the coil is completely frosted over you have a defrost problem and need to determine which component has failed

Model 596.73502203 Making intermittant buzzing sound. Moisture on inside of fridge and freezer. Food in freezer is thawing out.

I believe that your refrigerator may need a new 12002495 or 1184282 Adaptive Defrost Control You can find it inside the fresh food section and behind the controls for temperature. Not sure about the buzzing sound yet but the moisture and thawing of the frozen food points to a defrost problem. Need you to unplug and have a look at the adaptive defrost control. Would not hurt to open the back panel in the rear of freezer and defrost if needed and need someone to check the defrost heater and defrost thermostat. Sea Breeze

Leaking water drop by drop from the bottom of the freezer door

HI, It is possible that the defrost drain is plugged and pripping into the fresh food section. Is the drip in the back and around the control panel?
Two ways to check this out. Remove the rear panel inside the freezer and see if the evaporator coils has a thin layer of frost. While in there, look and see if there is a build up of ice in the drain.
You can also remove the control panel in the fresh food section and se if the drain hole is plugged causing the water to drip. Are you temeratures ok in both sections?
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.
