    I have a Electrolux refrigerator PLHS267ZA that is 6-yr old and the unit works fine for 2-3 days then stops working, creates frost in the wall of the freezer then gets warm. I shut it off for a few hours then plug it back on and it works for another 2-3 days...

The fridge is working whit out stop


If the unit is running all the time and is not freezing everything then open the back fiberboard panel and clean out the coils in the back. Check to make sure the condenser cooling fan is running also. If the compressor is running and the condenser fan is not running there is a problem with the condenser fan. The compressor, condenser and evaporator fans all should be running at the same time. the condenser fan can be stuck... have dry bearings... of simply has failed. Before removing the back cover... touch the chassis were the doors close... it should be warm but not VERY warm to the touch. If it is VERY warm to the touch... for sure you have a problem with the condensor fan.

Since you did not say anything other than the fridge is working whit out stop, I have to assume at this point that the evaporator fan is running in the freezer compartment just fine.

I really need to know:
1. Is there ice in the back of the freezer compartment?
2. Is the evaporator fan running?
3. Is the condenser fan running?
4. Are the condenser coils clean?

One of the above has a problem... you just need to identify which one.

Tip

Freezer not working, things to check


The unit needs two fans running and good airflow, one fan outside cools the condensor coil and the other inside the unit blowing across the evaporator coil, warming it. The compressor must start up. The defrost timer stops everything and switches on a heating element to defrost the evaporator for several minutes. Please verify these conditions. The condensor coil may get clogged with dirt and lint, the evaporator may get clogged with ice build up, or the fan may quit working due to bad bearings, need for lubrication, or burn out. The defrost timer has an internal motor and contacts which may quit working, some have a way to manualy turn it to switch its mode in case it quits working.

Fridge runs all the time


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

Since you did not provide a model number... this will be a generic / not unit specific answer.

Running all of the time can be caused by several things. Two of the most common reasons is either the condensor fan area in the lower back of the unit has a problem. (lint, fan not running) or the evaporator fan in the freezer is not running. (Fan, ice build up on coils stopping fan)

If the unit is not defrosting properly the evaporator coils freeze up and air can not pass through the coil area. This results in the freezer beening cold and the fresh food compartment to slowly warm up.

Open the doors of your unit and touch the facing area where the door gasket seals. I should be warm to the touch but should NOT be very warm to almost hot. If it is very warm / hot to the touch it will confirm my comments above.

UNPLUG the unit
Clean the condensor area in the bottom of the unit. Use a crevice tool and something NOT sharp, NOT metal and NOT pointed to clean the coils. Old paint brush, big cable tie etc. Make sure the condensor fan is running after you plug the unit back in. A note on powering up any refrigerator.... anytime power is remove you must wait 15 - 20 minutes for the coolant system to stabilze or the compressor will not start.

If you note ice build up in the freezer compartment do a manual defrost by unplugging the unit, placing a fan directed at the freezer compartment (less freezer contents) for just over 2 hours. It makes a water mess so be ready to tend to drips and puddles. After 2 hours and clean up.. return the unit to normal service.

After doing the above the unit should operate normally for at least 2 days. If it continues to operate normally great. If after a few days it starts acting up again suspect that the automatic defrosting function is not working properly and have the defrost system checked.

Whirlpool side by side made in 1998 is not cold. freezer side temp ranges between 32 - 40 degrees at coldest setting. coils are clean. blower is working. could thermostat be stuck or freon low? where do...


Most of the time there is an automatic defrosting problem when the freezer starts warming up. Ice builds up on the evporator coils.. airflow gets restricted and the temps warm up. Check to see that your evaporator fan is running at full speed. If it is then do a manual defrost by performing the following steps:

1. Unplug the unit
2. Remove freezer contents
3. Place a fan blowing air into the freezer compartment for a little over 2 hours. (Makes a mess... rags and Mop time)
4. After 2 hours wipe out any residual water...
5, Plug in unit
6. Reload freezer.
7. Check temps in 4 - 5 hours.

If temps are normal you have an Automatic defrost problem.
Causes can be:
1. Defrost timer / control
2. Defrost Heating Element
3. Wiring

There are other causes but timer / control or the element in a 10 + year old unit are the normal failures.

Do this step before the manual defrost
Make sure that the condensor fan in the lower rear part of the unit is running at FULL speed.and that the condensor coils are free of lint and debris. If the condensor and fan are loaded with lint it will cause warmer operating temps. Clean as needed.

If after you do a manual defrost and the temps come back to normal for at least 24 hours you will need to troubleshoot the auto-defrost circuit. If you need help at that time just respond here and I will help you.

My GE Side by Side is not working wierdly. the top few shelves on both the freezer and refridgerator are not cooling but the bottom shelves are cold.


Check to see if your evaporator fan is blowing in the freezer, then check your condensor fan behind the back panel. If those are both running make sure your coils are clean underneath your fridge. Cold goes down heat goes up, that's why it is warm up top and cold down. Start there. Good luck!

Subzero 561 Fridge side works, Freezer side working fine


Sounds like a cold control. It is located behind the panel and can be ohmed out to check for proper operation. You need to remove the light shield then after the shelves have been taken out remove the two screws that hold the fan shroud in place. This will allow back panel to come for so you can check the cold control. It should read as a short in all positions except off when the cap tubes have come to ambient temp. If you get the back off and see ice on only a small portion of the evaporator you have a sealed system problem and need a qualified technician.
