Why is the freezer not defrosting?


If it is a frost free freezer check that the door is closing properly and the seals are in good contact when the door is shut. Sometimes, when a door is not shut properly ice will build up, even in a no frost freezer

Why is ice forming in freezer


Ice layer inside freezer box floor - Defrost drain line clogged.

Frost or ice on freezer box top - Room air leaking into the fridge from door seals.

Frost on the Freezer box back wall means unit is not defrosting properly.

Defrost not working heavy ice build up around coils


Hi

Frost is a natural occurrence on the evaporator coils in the freezer compartment of your refrigerator. To prevent frost buildup, a self-defrosting refrigerator warms the coils using a defrost heater several times each day to melt away the frost. This frost melts into water and flows out of the compartment through the drain. If any part of the defrost system is not working properly, the result can be heavy frost buildup that may affect the cooling capacity of the refrigerator.

The defrost timer is a mechanism that tells the defroster how long to run to melt the frost. The limit switch measures the temperature in the freezer and helps to maintain it, while the heater is the key element that melts the frost. Any one of these components could need replacement at a given time, which will result in this over-frosting.

Upper portion (frig not cooling properly) Lower portion (freezer) forming ice on #3 setting.


Is it forming ice or frost? It sounds like an automatic defrost problem. If the freezer frosts up it won't circulate enough air up to the fresh food compartment. Try defrosting it manually for 24 hours by shutting it down and leaving the freezer door open. Afterwards, if it resumes normal operation I would bet that there is something faulty in the defrost circuit, i.e., defrost heater not working or defrost control.

As struck freezer fan by working due to over frosting behind the freezer where FFan is located. Check defroster cycling is working properly. .Keep temp 5 degree and check thermostat, defrost timer and heater working properly.
Now defrost manually or unplug fridge. And after defrost, plug it again.

Frost Buildup in Frost Free unit.


You will have to check the defrost timer to make sure it is turning if it is working properly and you are getting power to the defrost heating element below the freezer coil it should get hot if you have a 115volts or so to the element and it does not get hot then you have a bad element

The fridge portion is not staying cold. The freezer is working fine.


The air damper(that allows air to go to the freezer to frig side) is possibly plugged with frost. or if frost on back panel is visible then the unit is not defrosting properly, three possible failues or combnations 1.defrst heater 2.defrost timer 3.bi-metal defrost thermostat. find which is failed but the fi frost is on the back panel the the quickest tempory fix is this remove all items from the freezer and thaw/defrost the evap coil then reassemble the freezer compartment

Frost in Freeze


Hi Frezer Frost.
It sounds like your defrost circuit in the refrigerator has gone south. This melts the ice off of the cooling coil in the freezer section every 8 - 10 hours of run time.
If you are old enough to remember the manual defrost refrigerators, that is why you had to defrost them occasionally. The ice layer on the coil acts as an insulator, preventing the coil from working properly.
