    Thank you would like another opinion. The pipe that is icing up is inside the frig at the back left hand side .above the horizontal water drain trough.

According to ur problem i think the oil has got pumped from the compressor which causes cooling at the top. to solve this problem the things to do is first switch off the refrigerator and then using the heater heat the back side of the fridge near the tubes from top to bottom then after some time u swich on the refrigerator then u can find ur fridge working correctly if again the problem comes then the lead valve is not working properly change the lead valve of the compressor if the problem persists in ur fridge

Hi,

This is a common problem that often doesn't have a clear, permanent solution. The first thing to check is the overall internal refrigerator temperature (see the Appliance Accessories section for a refrigerator/freezer thermometer). The proper temperature should be between 35 and 42 degrees. Here are some things to try:

  • If your refrigerator temperature is closer to 35 degrees, try turning the temperature up slightly.


  • If you find that the temperature varies a lot from the top shelf to the bottom (where it is coldest), try putting produce and other sensitive products on a higher shelf.


  • If the temperature is too low and you can't make it warmer by adjusting the thermostat, you probably have a defective thermostat. If so, you need to replace it, because they cannot be repaired. Other possible problems are a leak in the sealed (refrigerant) system, cold air migration (in side-by-side models) or a defective air damper. These problems can be quite difficult to locate and correct, i recommend you contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

    The hose that goes to the water dispenser most likely has a crack in it somewhere inside the door. Usually the heat from the light in the door deteroriates the hose and lets water leak inside the door every time the dispenser is used.

    My fridge is not cold


    Hello friend, I appreciate your post!

    I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator is not working and you need it to work in cold weather. May I ask where the refrigerator is located? Additionally, what is the model number of your appliance? You can locate your serial tag (which lists your model number) on the inside cabinet of the fresh food compartment normally on the left side of a top mount. On a side by side it can be found on the right hand side. I look forward to your response to better assist you. -Matt

    GE Frig model TFX20JRBK ww with icing on freezer


    I would suggest fixing it . You only have 2 parts in the defrost system . A timer , and the defrost heater which comes with the bimetal , pt . # WR51X10031 .Most probable , is the defrost heater . You will need to remove the rear inside freezer panel , and defrost the coils with a hair dryer . After defrosting , 2 screws hold each ( 2 ) heater on , ant the defrost thermostat , just clips onto the top of the coils .

    Refrigerator is staying at 50 degrees, will not get any cooler


    May be your computer board, not turning on the defrost heaters in the freezer section. The freezer will eventually get warm too. Are you getting frost build-up on the rear wall of the freezer? If you are, you can temporarily solve the problem by turning off the whole refrige for a day and open up the freezer door- put towels on the floor under the freezer doors. Then turn it back on - mine worked fine again. I am currently waiting for a computer board replacement. It is behind the metal plate on the back (outside) of the cabinet. Good luck.

    Check the following: is the defrost timer cycling. If it is is the heater working, located behind the freezer back panel, defrosts the Evaporator coil that makes cold.

    Freezer not working


    Your refrigerator has a Control-defrost,adaptive timer ,PC board part number 241508001
    This is providing your model is the one listed above your post WRS3R3EW. The model you listed in post does not come up. Until we can determine that the freezer is not defrosting you need to unplug and remove the back panel of freezer compartment to see if the evaporator coils are frozen or clear. If frozen this alone will cause a chain reaction that keeps vents to fresh food compartment open and cause freezing in that area. Go to link below and enter model number WRS3R3EW0 Then you will see a list of diagrams on left side, chose #11 this will show the control parts. Click link below Thanks, Sea Breeze

    Westinghouse Wse6100WA side by side Fridge-icing up/not cooling


    This is a bad design flaw, the fridhe is cooled by fan forced air from the freazer. Two ducts vent into and out of the fridge fron the freezer and ice can block them up (which you can find if you take off all the plastic at the top and back of the fridge).
    Hence, when they block up, the frindge does not cool, hence the thermostat tells the fridge to keep running which makes the freezer colder and colder, making the blockage worse.

    You need to not only fully defrost the freezer (which can be done quicker by removing the plastic panel in the back of the freezer and using a hairdryer) BUT also fully dry the fridge before turning it back on.
    To stop it happening again, avoid puting unvovered liquids or hot items in the fridge. Also avoid leaving the fridge and freezer doors open for long especially in humid conditions. As I said, it's a bad design.
