This is the second time the freezer accumulates water and freezers at the bottom of the freezer section of the Admiral HMG67158, 26.6 cu ft freez/refrig. The coils behind the panel were completely frozen...


unplug unit, remove back panel inside freezer and manually defrost with hair dryer, sounds like you have a defrost problem, check defrost thermostat, defrost heater or defrost timer, defrosting with hair dryer will fix until it freezes up again

Freezer cold but fridge part struggling admiral hmg19149


Up under the control panel , will be a larger hole with a screw slot up inside . Once you find this hole , insert a screwdriver into the slot ( open the freezer door ) and turn the screwdriver slowly , until the freezer fan cuts off . This piece you are turning , is the defrost timer , and you have turned the refrig into defrost . Remove the food and icemaker ( if equiped ) and remove the rear inside freezer panel , by removing the 4 screws ( 1 on each corner ) . After removing the panel , look below the coils for a red glow (defrost heater ) . If you get the red glow , replace the defrost timer , pt # 68233-3 . ( This is while still in defrost ) . If no red glow , replace the heater ( pt # 61002045 ) and replace the defrost thermostat also ( pt # 61005254 ) The defrost thermostat , cuts the heater off , when defrosted enough , to keep the frozen food from thawing . This piece , a 1 " round cylinder , is clipped on the top of the coils , with 2 wires going to it .

Freezer and fridge is warm, cold air blowing but freezer is still


Try this, I went to the freezer side pulled the inside back panel (had to defrost it to get it out) and it was completely frozen over. It was not not operating properly because the cooling coils would not allow the fan to pull air through them to cool the refrigerator side. I completely defrosted the coils and turned the refrigerator back on, it worked fine. I then ordered a new adaptive defrost assembly (this is the thing that prevents the ice buildup) since ours was apparently not working properly. I used a fan too speed up the defrost process, because i had to take all the frozen food out and put it in a cooler to get to the back panel. After you take out the racks and food you only need to remove two screws that have a 1/4' head. good luck.

Ge side by side not cool enough even on higher settings


I posted this on another problem, but this may help you too.
Check to see if there is frost on the back panel of the freezer.
If there is try solution below:
................................................................................................
I had a similar problem. The frost in the back is an indication that your coils are frozen. This could be from food packages falling out of the freezer drawers in the back and blocking the air circulation vents or maybe the freezer door was not closed completely and letting moist/humid air in and freezing the coils.
For me it was the first problem listed.I had to completely empty the freezer and Frig. and take the back panel off in the freezer. There you will see the coils and lots of ice!
1. Remove all items from the frig. and freezer and unplug frig.
2. Pull all the freezer drawers out.
3. On my GE side by side I took the light cover off and removed the bulb. There you will see two panel screws. Remove the screws.
4. Now pull out the mouldings on each side and you should be able to remove the panel.
5. Take a hair drier and completely defrost all the ice from the coils.
Be sure to keep plenty of towels handy for all the water mess. Remember to keep an eye on the drain tray in the back of the frig. and use a sponge to collect the water that will build up.
Hope this helps!.....

Refrigerator water condensation drain line freezing


GO TO THE FREEZER PORTION OF THE FRIG.YOU NEED TO TAKE THE ICEMAKER OUT AND REMOVE THE BACK PANEL WHERE THE EVAPORATER FAN IS .RIGHT UNDER THE COIL YOU WILL SEE A DRAIN ,WHEN YOUR FREEZER GOES ON DEFROST THE WATER GOES DOWN THE DRAIN AND INTO A PAN THAT SITS ON TOP OF THE COMPRESSOR.THE HEAT FROM THE COMPRESSOR EVAPORATES THE WATER.THE DRAIN IN THE FREEZER IS PROBABLY CLOGGED OR FROZEN OVER WITH ICE AND THATS WHY THE WATER IS GOING ELSEWARE.REMOVE ALL THE ICE FROM AROUND THE DRAIN.IF THERES A ROD THAT GOES DOWN THE DRAIN FROM THE DEFROST ELEMENT THATS SUPPOSED TO KEEP THE DRAIN FROM ICING UP ,IN ANY CASE THE DRAIN IS CLOGGED OR ICED UP.UNCLOG THE GRAIN AND YOU WILL BE GOOD TO GO.

Fridge and freezer not cold and frozen up


Can you remove the back panel inside the freezer and defrost the coils. Use a shop vac with the hose in the blow position instead of the vacuum position. And blow on the coils to defrost quickly. Hair dryers work also but prolonged use will burn up hair dryers. Now turn back on and see if the inside the freezer fan works. It should be running to keep the coils from freezing up. Also could be defrost timer. But this will be enough to get you going. Let me know how it goes. ken

Kenmoore side by side self defrost mode not operating correctly


when the coils ar emanually thawed does the water get removed by the drain ho;le or are you having to soak it all up with a shop vac? The drain may be frozen up and that would cause the water to stay in the freezer and product ice.you said that the coils foreese over after several minutes does tha fan come on and start moving the air over the coils? theres a sensor that should be bringing on the fan and that should keep the coils from freezing up. On thae back side of the panel is there styrofoam on it ? if there is stryofoam is part of it missing and the air flow now incorrect? Just a few more things to lok at. Thanks For using FixYa and don't forget to rate this solution please.
