Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

I have a new proline TTR65P small fridge. It keeps freezing up. I have turned the thermostat down, the door seals are not broken and I can't see any other problem (except that the ice tray inside is over-freezing i.e. collecting thick ice. Can anyone suggest what I should do (apart from throw it out the window). Thanks Iain

SOURCE: ice tray stuck

Hi My Samsung freezer was nor a RB2155 it is a RS2630SH however after not making any ice because the tray was stuck in the upside down position or thereabout after 6 weeks it suddenly started making ice again, we had not done anything to it but we heard it dropping ice one evening and we had a look in the ice container and low and behold the ice box was full to the top, I would still like to know why it went like that in the first place in case it happens again it is a mystery.

SOURCE: Bosch frost free fridge freezer

Such a frost build-up usually indicates a problem in the self-defrosting system or damaged door gaskets.

The refrigerator is supposed to self-defrost approximately four times in every 24 hour period. If one of the components in the self-defrosting system fails, the refrigerator continues to try to cool. Eventually, though, so much frost builds up on the evaporator coils that the circulating fan can't draw air over the coils. There may still be a small amount of cooling because the coils are icy, but with no air flow over the coils, cooling in the refrigerator compartment is quite limited.

Here's an inexpensive, though inconvenient, way to determine if the problem is with the self-defrosting system. Remove all of the perishable food from the refrigerator and freezer, turn the thermostat in the refrigerator to Off, and leave the doors open for 24 to 48 hours. (Be sure to have several towels ready in case the melting frost and ice causes the drip pan to overflow). This allows the refrigerator to defrost "manually." When the frost and ice build-up has completely melted away, turn the thermostat back to a normal setting. If the refrigerator then cools properly, it indicates a problem with one of three components in the self-defrosting system:

  • The defrost timer


  • The defrost thermostat (also called the bi-metal switch)


  • The defrost heater


If it still does not cool properly, there may be a problem with the refrigerant level or the compressor. You may need to consult with a qualified appliance repair technician to further diagnose the problem

SOURCE: ice build up

Check that the door is closing properly otherwise the freezer will be working overtime to cool and ice will form. If the door seal is good, it is possible that the thermostat needs to be checked.

Why does my freezer keep freezing up then leak all over the floor


Hallo

1:Check your door seals(damage door seals causes fridge to suck humidity into the fridge causing it to ice up to much and then the pan type humidifier at the back of the bottom of the fridge can evaporate the water fast enough causing an over flow).
2:If door seals aren't damage I would say at this moment its cold where you live and it would also cause high humidity and there for your thermostat should be set to min:2 and max:3 your choice and try to prevent opening the door to much or keeping it open for 2 long.
3:Ievel the fridge ensure that its level.
4:If the problem still occur let me know.

Regards

My food in the fridge section is freezing in my Frigidaire fqe6307sae. How do I know if it is the thermostat and how do I adjust the temperature on the display?


I could check the freezer for ice build up. clean the door seals and make sure the freezer isn't overloaded. Too much food or improper sealing of the doors will make the compressor work harder in cooling down the freezer which in turn freezes the fridge part.

good luck

Idesit BAAN134 PSUK fridge keeps freezing food . The fridge part of my tower f/f keeps freezing food even though I have turned the dial down to the minimum the temperature regularly drops to below...


If it is an electronic thermostat it could be that the engineer has changed the board but not the sensor which reads the temp. If it is a mechanical thermostat it may be hes fitted the wrong type.It could also be that the system is short of refrigerant and the actual refrigerant charge is not getting all the way to the thermoststs sensor to switch it off, the back wall of the fridge should be frosted at least 3/4 of the way down and not just forming in a small part of the fridge.

Things freezes up in the refrigerator section of the home frige


If fridge is freezing, check the door seal on the freezer part. Make sure it is completely sealed, The freezer can leak air, allowing motor to pump freon continuously to fridge.
If the seal looks ok, try turning down fridge temp. If you have done this already, than I would look into having thermostat or thermometer sensor replaced.

My fridge in my fridge freezer keeps freezing everything in it.


If the fridge side is frozen you have a door seal issue.
If the freezer side is frozen you have a defrost component issue.
Your post was not clear as to which side is frozen.

Refrigerator freezer freezes over every couple of week and gets all iced up. the refrigerator is a kirkland model number st18pkxhwoo


This could be one of two problems, either the thermostat is faulty and there's little control over temperature ( you'll know this if the fridge is always humming away and doesn't turn off very often) or, the gasket around the door is worn or damaged, il explain, if the fridge isn't air tight or at least the freezer box the moister in the air will condense as ice, hence if you leave a freezer door open it will freeze over in no time! Now the thermostat is made up of two parts, firstly there is a sealed metallic bulb which contains a heat sensitive gas, when the gas expands it shoots down a very thin pipe to a switch , hens the name thermostatic switch, now it is common for these to have a short shelf life as they are always on off on off! some fridges and freezers have an anti freeze over function ( called frost free) Check to see that your drip tray is free from water, the hole is clear that the water drains down (usually at the back, and try and keep food which contains alot of water sealed and not just open, that should cut down the amount of water in the fridge. Drying clothes in your home causes alot of excess moisture in the air also. Good Luck the Yeti

Fridge keeps on freezing everything inside of it


This refrigerator only has one thermostat located in the fresh food compartment it is designed to activate the sealed system (cooling) until it reaches approximately 37 deg f in the fresh food compartment. The damper controls how fast the cold air can move from the freezer compartment to the fresh food compartment. Allowing you to control the temp in the freezer by controlling the flow of cold air to the thermostat.

You have one of two problems.
#1 your thermostat is no longer opening when it achieves set temp. fix = replace thermostat pn 61005798 $35
#2 your damper arm or assemblie has broken. Fix = Replace damper or broken arm and actuator.
damper assembly pn12001377 $44
damper actuator pn 61002000 $2
damper arm pn 61001999 $2
