It is possible that the auto defrost timer is not working and so the compressor is running on . You must check on the defrost timer and heater to confirm which is normally found within the freezer.

Its defrost problem.--------- When you open the freezer door, then ice starts getting defrosted, because outside temperature is warm and due to that inside ice gets bit melted.--------- -------------- The working procedure of this unit is as follows: --- The compressor starts then it cools the freezer section. When the freezer reaches its cooling level the defrost cycle starts functioning. In this cycle the fan in the freezer section starts running and the cool air in the freezer section is passed to the fridge section and the fridge section gets cold. The air from freezer to refrigerator passes from the section, in that section the damper is located. ----------- The damper is operated by a motor.Its a complete damper assembly with motor included in it.--The damper has door.Which closes and open with the help of motor.In your case the damper door is blocked by ice, because your refrigerator is not defrosting.But when you open the freezer door, the inside ice gets bit warm and it starts melting and this lets the fridge section get cool.------------------- In this case you will have to manually defrost the ice and inspect, if the problem solves.For manual defrost procedure, click the link below:-------- Click this below for more detail:--- http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/06/refrigerator-is-not-cooling-properly.html ----------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

WHY IS THERE ALWAYS ICE ON THE BOTTOM OF THE FREEZER.IT GETS TO BE SO THICK THAT THE DOOR DOESN'T SEAL?


You have a frozen drain. Remove the cover on the bottom back and locate the drain tube and thaw it with a hair dryer. Find the drain inside the fridge and run hot water thru it until it opens.

Whirpool bottom mount fridge not defrosting 2 years old


Inside back cover of fridge should be a schematic. If this not computer controlled, there is a defrost timer in there somewhere. It will have 120 V AC coming to it, on to the heating element then back to 120 VAC return. If fridge has a ice maker, it also controls the water valve, filling the tray. Frequently the defrost timer fails, could also be wiring or the heater, but this is unlikely

Ice, drips and soggy peas!


never buy a fridge with an ice box! the freezer compartment is not cold enough for long term storage and all of them build up ice. however, check door seals carefully as you may have an air leak past them. "4" is a reasonable setting and the stat controls both sections. also check that the compressor stops and starts regularly. if it is constantly running, you could have a compressor fault
