Sounds like it's working but not getting cold enough in freezer or refrigderator


In my experience, the biggest culprit causing these symptoms is the defrost heater. This is a heating device that melts frost off the "evaporator coils" better known as the coils usually located inside the freezer area of the unit. These coils get very cold and warm air that is let inside when any door is open, will carry moisture with it that will accumulate like water on the outside of a cold glass in summer time, only it accumulates on the evaporator coils and turns to frost.

As your fridge cycles through its operating stages, one part of the cycle turns off the cooling and turns on a heating device of varying types to melt the frost and ice off of the evaporator coils so it can drip down and flow through a small hose through an opening in the bottom of the fridge and into a pan underneath the fridge where it evaporates back into the air again.

If the heating device never comes on, or becomes inoperative, the frost will slowly continue to collect on the evaporator coils until it becomes a solid block of ice. This now greatly reduces the ability of the evaporator fan to blow the cold air around the coils throughout the freezer and the rest of the fridge. The ice built up around the evaporator coils will still provide some cold, but will significantly prevent the fridge from operating properly.

Another cause may be the evaporator fan not operating correctly. If it doesn't blow air over the evaporator coils well enough, cold air will not get distributed through out the fridge. Cold air tends to "fall", so the bottom of the freezer will be the coldest. Generally, there is an adjustable hole in "side by side" units so that the amount of air coming through that hole can make the "meat crisper" colder. In fridges where the freezer is on the top, I've seen the evaporator coils (which often incorporate "fins" like those on a car radiator, turn into a solid block of ice.
25823064-nzcmabjorfygbev20le00e4d-4-1.jpg Also check for dust collecting on the condenser coils on the outside of the fridge. These dissipate heat drawn from inside the fridge and take it outside the fridge. These are often located on the back of the fridge or underneath the fridge. Dust and fluff act as insulation and degrade their ability to work properly.

Obviously, to repair the fridge, you should relocate the contents of your unit until you can repair the fridge. Fixing your fridge will take at least a few hours even if you can get your hands on repair parts quickly. This will involve unplugging the unit and locating the items I've referred to. Either allow the accumulated ice to melt naturally or GENTLY speed up the process with a hair dryer or heat gun. Do not use any force removing the accumulated ice and frost, you could easily damage the coils and make things much worse than they already are. Even to the point of making the unit uneconomical to repair.

Without your posting a make, model, type of freezer/fridge arrangement or other details, it is difficult to assist you further. Part placement and component locations vary greatly in this appliance.

Where do I locate the evaporator on my fridge


Hi, what kind of refrigerator is it? The evaporator is generally on the back wall of the freezer, it usually has cover over it with some vent holes.

What is the evaporator


The evaporator is the part of the fridge that gets cold, more correctly it removes heat. It is usually located in the freezer and a fan motor, evaporator fan, move air thru the evaporator to cool both the fridge and the freezer. Some units have two evaporators, one for the fridge and one for the freezer.

After power outage the fridge was displaying codes SY and EF I have Frigidaire model number FGHS2365KF1. Any thoughts?????


Hi.

SY: Defective evaporator system. Check evaporator fan, thermostat and heater.

EF: Evaporator Fan defective. Test and eventually replace the evaporator fan.

The problem is likely the evaporator fan. Before replacing the fan test the other parts comprised in the evaporator system.

Here a tip explaining how to test such parts with a similar fridge model: Fridge not cooling. Procedure is more or less the same with your model.

Here parts and diagrams for your model.

Generally you can find parts and diagrams for most appliances using the links listed on this page:
Where do I find parts and diagrams for my appliance?

Hotpoint Mistral Fridge Freezer, freezer working fine at -22 degrees, however, fridge has stopped working and is on +19 degrees. Had an E8 error message a few weeks ago which was quick fixed with a turn on...


Evaporator thermistor is on the radiator located at the back of the fridge. Older fridges had a big on aircooled along the entire back of the fridge whilst the newer ones have it under the fridge with a fan cooling it. 90% of the time the fan gives up causing this type of issue.

My fridge keeps filling up with water, I pulled the bottom of the fridge out and vacumed, the tray underneath is dry and I guess the fridge isn't draining properly. How do I fix this?


Yes you are correct it is not drainind properly.
Remove the back panel in your freezer and at the bottom of the evaporator coil you will see a hole about ½” in diameter this is the drain tube. You might need to use some warm water to melt the ice and then run a wire being very careful not to puncture the hose and run it down the tube to free up the drain. This tube travel down to the bottom of your refrigerator to a pan sometimes located on top of the compressor or somewhere else down there. It collects the water there to evaporate. You can enter your model # at www.appliancehelponline.com for a diagram or illustration of your refrigerator. Not all models are available.

KENMORE MODEL 363.58062894 fROST FREE IS FREEZING UP. i HAVE CLEANED THE COILS UNDERNEATH AND DEFROSTED IT MANUALLY. HOW CAN I FINISH TROUBLE SHOOTING IT


Sounds as if the actual defrost tube has gone bad. What this defroster does is keep the build up of ice from the inside of the freezer. This defrost tube is located between the freezer and fridge just above the evaporator fan motor inside the fridge. You can possibly access the area from the bottom of the freezer unless it is a bottom freezer with fridge on top then the access would be from the fridge base.

An appliance parts house should have the diagram for this replacement if you take the model and serial number to them they may give you a printed diagram of the part needing to be replaced.

Good luck hope this helped you some

Water Leak in a Maytag MSD2456GEQ Refrigerator


Here are diagrams of your fridge. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=48214
Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer. If this repeatedly happens with yours, you may can prevent it by taking a bare copper wire and wrap it around a fin near the heater and put the other end a few inches down the drain. The heat convection may prevent it from freezing.
