Your automatic defrost function may not be working.

This system is comprised of only two items; the heating coil or element, and the timer.
The first are hidden behind access panels and the timer is often located behind the trim grill below the compartments.
Timers seem to be failing a lot more than they once did; they used to outlast the compressor.

My refrigerator is cool but not cold. My freezer is keeping things frozen but takes longer to form ice (no ice maker) and my ice cream is soft. I hear the motor running and I do not have any frost build...


Hi Nancy,

I bet you've got all kinds of frost / ice behind the plastic cover that protects (and shields from view) the cooling coil in the freezer compartment.

You probably have one or more: defrost timer, defrost terminator or defrost heating element that has failed. Call for service - or empty the fridge and unplug with door open for a day - ice will melt and when you plug in again it will work just fine. Until frost builds up again that is.

Good luck!

When frost builds up on the little flapper at the top of the door above the ice maker it can get stuck. It tells the ice maker to keep making ice. Try cleaning the mechanism of frost and make sure it operates freely.
