HI thanks for your question. the way that frost builds up on the return line is the freezer is running too long . you have the temp set at too cold a setting 34 deg is too cold. it should be 36. 37. other wise frost builds up.thanks the appliance doc. please rate my answer. thanks.

I'm getting frost and ice build up on the bottom and back of the fridge compartment on my LG French door fridge.

To me This is on all Makes and models build up of frost means warmer humid air is entering into colder air this will cause a frost build up from entrance of warm air coming in so your looking at your air flow in all compartments of your ref,freezer so on.
blocked air will give false readings to sensors when compartment is asking for lower temp colder temp will be noticed.
bad or obstructed door seals door not closing properly
Follow your frost line it will point the way.

Bank 1 and 2 rich, rough idle. Have replaced upper and lower intake gaskets, TB gasket, MAF sensor, throttle position sensor, EGR valve, all 4 o2 sensors, both cats, all 8 fuel injectors, fuel pressure...

I'm going to assume the temp sensor is reading normal ?
And there is no restriction in the return line to the tank ?
Any chance there is excessive fuel in the oil ?

I have a GE Side by side Fridge with model #TFX27PFSM WW and the coils were completely frozen. I used the hair dryer on them and thawed them out. As soon as I plugged the fridge back in, they immediately...


Its normal for the evaperator coil in the freezer to have frost on it that is a sign of a heallthy good working compressor...WHEN IT BUILDS UP SO THICK their is no gaps in the coil and its just one huge iceblock that is where the problem lays. Thier is a automatic defrost system that is supposed to periodically come on and melt the frost and a component from it has failed allowing the frost to build up so thick it has restricted airflow through it.

The most probable problem is going to be a bad defrost heater it by far is the leading problem when a GE brand ref.doesnt automatically defrost.

This tip i wrote explains how to check and see why its not automatically defrosting

I have a side by side hotpoint refrigerator, it is an older one and the frezzer is fine but the frig part wont get cold


The leading cuase of the freezer working fine yet the refrig. isn't warm is a defrost problem so the freezer cant defrost causing the air flow into the ref. section to be totally blocked due to frost build up in the freezer.Do you see frost build up on the back wall of the freezer??

If you do see frost build up here is what to check to see why the frost is building up instead of melting automatically as it is supposed to do.

DEFROST HEATER ...remove back wall of freezer and you will see a black heater at the bottom of the coil thats frosted up,it looks similar to the bake element in your oven,or in some cases it is going to be a spiraled wires inside of a glass tube. To check it,use a multimeter set to the lowest ohms of resistiance setting and follow and find the wires at the top of that frosted coil,unplug/disconnect those wires and check for continuty with around 5-20 ohms of resistiance. If it has that amount of ohms the heater is good. If your meter display does not change or displays OL the defrost heater is broke and needs to be replaced

DEFROST TERMINATION THERMOSTAT... it's round and has 2 wires and clips to the top of that frosted up coil. IT MUST BE CHECKED WHEN COLD SO BEST TO DO WHEN FROST IS STILL BUILT UP. To check it disconnect the wires on it and check for ZERO ohms of resistiance. As with the heater if the meter display OL or doesnt change,it is the problem

DEFROST TIMER...It fits into the control panel in the REF. (NOT FREEZER) section. To check it move the center wheel in a clockwise direction until the compressor and fan in the freezer shuts off,then when they shutoff...within 5 minutes the defrost heater should be on if the heater is on within 5 minutes THE DEFROST TIMER IS BAD..if the heater does not come on within 5 minutes the timer is good and it will be either the heater or termination t-stat that is the problemoldtech2332_90.jpgoldtech2332_91.jpgoldtech2332_92.jpg
Good luck,

While these pictures are for a different brand ALL refrigerators are similar and may look some what different than your but will be similar enough

My freezer keeps defrosting even on high settings. On high settings the freezer fan get stuck because of frost build up.

try to set your ref on normal setting due to hi setting frost is easily build up that thermo disc sense it that trigger your defrost heater to energized.or adjust your defrost timer.

I have side by side KSRA25ILSS and last week I have noticed-freeser is working OK,but refrigerator-too warm .I reseted sys. couple times,but coudnt fix problem. What is my next step,please?

you will need to check the damper control and make sure the door is opening properly to allow the cold air in the fridge this damper is normally located in the back f the fridge top left side.

then you will need to check the freezer compartment and make sure there is not alot of ice or frost build up.You will also need to make sure the evaporator fan is running in the freezer comprtment.

If there is frost or ice build up you can use a blow dryer to defrost it then remove the back panel and defrost the evap will need to check the defrost heater and temp sensor be sure there are all working good.

Psc25mstass freezer not cooling

I had a problem where the temperatures in both refrig and freezer wouls fluctuate. Would not geep ice cream frrozen in top of freezer but temp gauge would read 0. Even stranger would have stalagtites forming from the top shelves in the freeser (big ones). Still under extended warantee so tech replaced the mother board and iit is functioning well now.

Freezer frost then loss of cooling

There is a block of ice that is causing the air to not flow across the coils as it should. This is why the temp has risen. You can do a manual defrost by un-plugging the unit over night but I would call out a ref tech to check the defrost timer and the freon level. Hope this helps. Good luck. Please re-post with updates. Thanks cj2176.
