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

FREEZER NOT FREEZING PROPERLY


There could be a large list of things that cause the freezer to warm up from the temperature it was before. The most likely reason is you probably have a defrost problem. Defrost heater, defrost thermostat and the defrost control are all things that may have failed. If your model is not a frost free let me know. Look inside freezer for a layer of frost building on the rear wall. If your refrigerator is not defrosting it will be a short time before the fresh food compartment begins to warm. To extend the time your refrigerator and freezer can keep food safe defrost by placing a bucket of hot water inside the freezer and close the door. Please place food from freezer and fresh food compartment into another refrigerator or cold storage area. By keeping doors shut as much as possible the refrigerator and freezer will last up to a week this way before defrosting again, Sea Breeze

Freezer works refrigerator is warm


If the freezer is getting cold and working properly, but fridge section is not getting cold, then it can be defrost issue.------------------ The 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.--------- Try manual defrost reset procedure: ---- First unplug the unit from main power outlet. Then empty whole unit completely. Then keep both the doors open. Wait for 24 hours. All the ice collected on the coils and in the freezer section will get melted. Clean the water from the sections. Then Connect the power cord of the unit to main power outlet after 24 hours/.Then set the temperature to normal in both fridge and freezer section. It will take near to 4 hours to get run in its proper cooling cycle. Then check, if the problem returns again. If the same problem occurs then it's defrost problem. The defrost board and the defrost thermostat/heater is not functioning properly and it has to be checked and replaced. The defrost assembly consists of three main parts. The defrost thermostat, the defrost heater and defrost board. Any of the one is not functioning. When thermostat sense the maximum cooling, it triggers the defrost heater to start heating and this defrosts the ice collected on the coils and the system works. Both thermostat and heater are controlled by defrost board. First the thermostat and defrost heater to be checked, if both check ok by meter and visually, then its defrost board causing the problem. You can get required parts from online sites like: --- www.repairclinic.com or from searspartsdirect online site.This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Hello there:
If the freezer seems to be Is the thermostat knob turned to the proper setting? Is the compressor motor running? It's a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts on the outside of the freezer at the back near the bottom. Is it humming or making any kind of continuous noise? If it is, but your freezer is still not cooling at all, there may be a serious problem with one or more of these areas: The compressor The condenser The evaporator You can't service these yourself. You need to contact a qualified appliance repair technician. If the compressor isn't running but you do have power to the freezer, there may be a problem in one or more of these areas: The compressor The overload and relay The defrost timer It cools poorly or it's all iced up If your freezer cools but doesn't get cold enough, it may have a problem in one of several areas. To better understand the proper operation of a freezer, read about freezers in the How Things Work section of our website. In a self-defrosting freezer, poor cooling often results from a heavy frost build-up on the evaporator coils. You can't see these coils without removing a panel inside your freezer. But if you see any frost or ice build-up on the inside walls, ceiling, or floor of your freezer, it's a sure sign of frost build-up. And that's a sign of a problem with the self-defrosting system.

I have a GE Profile side-byside fridge. I have ice that forms on the floor every three days or so. I unplugged the water, but that is not the problem.


I would check the defrost drain for blockage. Unless this is completely clear the defrost cycle will continue to let water run inside instead of into the pan underneath. It is easiest to work on this if the freezer is completely empty and the back panel inside is removed. While it is opened up check the defrost heaters as the lower one is more apt to have failed.

Burned electrical smell from the freezer compartment


I would check the defrost thermostat usually a button type switch with 2 wires on it mounted to the freezer coil. Size depends on type ; 1 type is about quarter size, 1 is about dime size, and electronic sensor (not had one burn out but the board could smell like your description but I believe these are not in the freezer section).

I have had these cook out and smell up the freezer section before. And if they go out guess what it wont defrost either. If your fan motor goes out it might smell and wont cool all over but the frost should be minimal.


Also a bad defrost heater could make a smelly situation it is usually a black rod or aluminum colored and the rubber ends can burn and make a smell.
If you find its the heater, I would replace the defrost thermostat as well. Its suppose to cut off the heater before it gets too hot.

If this helps you find your problem please rate me as high as possible if not please post back with more information as to what you did find. Thanks for using fix ya and good luck.

Fridge not cold


Since there is no much info's about your problem, I let all the solutions that could be applied in such a situation.

Possibility 1: I suppose, the gas has run out. Often this is the reason why Refrigerators stops cooling. But we would assume it as a big trouble.

Possibility 2: The fan blowing the cold air from the freezer into the refrigerator may not be working.

Possibility 3: Your defrost thermostat is shot. you'll have to defrost the whole thing.

Possibility 4: If no other above option suits your need, Unplug the unit, remove the contents of the freezer, and you should see an opening in the back of the freezer compartment and about four screws that hold the back panel in place, if you remove these screws the back panel should come out exposing the fan, coils and defrost element. if this fan can be spun with your finger then plug in the unit, hold in the light button and the fan should run. You should also see if the coils are iced over. This may indicate the unit does not defrost properly. If the evaporator fan does not run, this would account for why the lower frig does not stay cool. you can remove the fan and check it with a meter to see if it is good. There are other parts in this compartment that keep the fan from running while the defrost cycle is in place so if you remove the fan and it checks out as OK then the button that controls the light is prob. OK if the light goes on and off as you depress the button and release.

Beyond these simple tests you should contact a repair person, depending on the age of the refrigerator, there are several other possibilities.

Possibility 5: If nothing is helpful, cutting on and off the refrigerator may resolve the issue.

I suppose, there can't be any more solution for this. I suggest you to post more details here after so that you get the most apt solution.

Good luck.
