If it is an older style Freezer or one that is NOT FROST FREE, it won't dry the air that is drawn into it every time you open the door . The air around us is full of moisture and that is what builds up and freezes. Frost free systems dry that air out so you get less moisture which in turn means less ice build up. Hope that helps...

Freezer stays cold. Why is fridge part warm?


if freezer gets iced up the fan designed to pass cold air from the freezer to the fridge stops working. The freezer is meant to go into a defrost mode when its trtansducer senses too much ice. If the transducer goes fault the ice builds up. Some fridges use a timer to work this out so it could be a timer fault. Talk to a service man about how much ice the freezer should have for them to sucessfully diagnose the fault. Too much ice may prevent the service man from working out if temperature sensor is working and no ice can prevent him from testing sensor. To get rid of ice you have to trun off the power to the fridge and let it melt.
BEWARE remove food to another freezer and fridge to prevent food going off or getting food poisioning

Please someo one help our freezer is soo cold that everything is freezing very hard, but our fridge is not cool it's starting to warm up, i see can see where the cold air is suposed to come from,


You will need to replace the "bimetal defrost element" and the "defrost heater".
Here is a link to the bimetal defrost.
Here is a link to the heater.
You will need to empty the unit of food and leave the doors open for 24 hours so that all the ice buildup on the coils defrost before you can replace the parts.

Take a look at this video.

I have water pooling on my fridge trays and than turning into ice . The water seems to be coming from the vents. How do i get rid of that.


The freezer compartment has a drain hole behind the back wall inside the freezer compartment. The drain hole has probably rusted and has gotten larger. Carefully remove the icemaker and the screws from the back wall inside the freezer compartment. Lift the bottom of the back wall and look to see if the drain hole has gotten larger. You can make a small funnel from an aluminum can to fit over this area directing the water into the drain tube. It worked for me. good luck. Dave.

Water leaking and ice in bottom shelf of freezer


Chances are you have a bad seal around the door if it's leaking from the inside which causes the ice to form as well, or if it's leaking from under the freezer you lave a bad heating element that evaporates the water collected in the pan under the freezer or you have a clogged hose that goes to the pan under the freezer which also causes the ice to form because the water has no place to go. Defrost and try to find a way to blow out the hose that goes from your freezer to the pan under the freezer and that should take care of your problem.

Whirlpool Refrigerator or freezer Doesnot cool


I have a similar top freezer and during the summer
I have had a problem where the frdge part does not get cold. The two holes coming from the bottom of the freezer to the fridge are blocked
with ice. I took the back part off the freezer
got rid of a clump of ice. I also used a hair dryer
in the fridge section to melt the ice in the holes.
