Question about Refrigerators

Leaking Fridge Hi, Thanks so much for your feedback. We did as you said and there wasn't any ice on the pipework but at the back of the freezer build up. We defrosted the freezer and ran hot water through and everything looked promising, however 7 days later there is ice build up at the back of the freezer and it is making a strange noise. There is no leaking of water at this stage. Any more suggestions. Thanks.

Check to see that your evaporator motor works otherwise ice will build up and the defrost time will not be enough to melt all the ice.....

Hi our fridge is building up ice in freezer section & water is leaking out bottom of fridge. I cleaned ice out once but came back nxt day Cheers Wayne


The problem is caused by the failure of either the defrost thermostat or defrost heater. In any case, replacing both the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat is recommended, and that would solve your "ice in freezer" problem.

Fridge stopped working


don't know your make or model so this is general. also bear in mind i am in UK not US so may not be familiar with your appliance
back plate i refer to is inside freezer and is usually held in with a few screws or plastic clips. it is normally easily removable. you will then see evaporator pipework and fan.
there are many arrangements but the usual is a single fan at the top. this fan is used to drive cold air round the freezer with some of the cold air going to the fridge.
the usual problems are.
fan jammed by ice build up - this can be preceeded by a noisy fan when the blades are hitting ice
excessive ice build up on the evaporator pipework which causes poor airflow and hence temps rise. a temporary cure is to melt the ice off with a hairdryer

take backplate off and let me know what you find

We have a fisher and paykel fridge and freezer. The freezer section is at the bottom and it has started leaking around the bottom and I've noticed the bottom of the freezer becomes very icy very quickly. ...


not the seals. the drain is blocked. take the rear panel off inside the freezer and yoy will probably see an ice build up at the bottom. melt off with a hairdryer and follow up with hot water till water flows away freely. if you have ice build up all over the pipework, then you have a defrost system fault and get back to me

Fridge freezer


there is a fan inside freezer behind back panel. if pipework behind panel is covered with ice, it will prevent air circulation and the fridge is affected first

take back panel off and check for ice build-up and that the fan is working

remove back panel of freezer. check if there is excessive ice build-up preventing air flow. if there is, then defrost carefully with a hairdryer (with appliance switched off) if no ice or frosting on pipework, check if compressor is running. if it is or hot to the touch or clicking, then you have a compressor fault and replacement is not diy. if compressor not running, then probably module fault
