Ice block


There is some cooling in the freezer which is allowing the temp to raise above freezing for a brief period. Check gaskets and or the temp setting. Is ice cream hard or soft. Ice cream freezes at around 15-18 degrees. My guess is that the door gasket is allowing air inside the box.

Freezer does not keep ice cream frozen


You are having a problem with one of the three main components of the the defrost system. Look into rear of your freezer to see if ice and frost is beginning to build up on the rear panel. If yes begin manual defrost by unplugging and remove contents of freeze. Even better send me the model number of your Whirlpool. That is how I tell you were the problem began most likely. Look around the door frame and inside the fresh food section sea Breeze

Freezer quit freezing


HI,

you can try this suggestion first.

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

any further question let me know.

thanks,

Leaking Freezer (top) on a GE TBX10 refrigerator


Your refrigerator is frosting up and your drain is freezing over. You will most likely need to defrost the coils in the freezer and the drain. Check the heater and defrost thermostat for continuity and replace if bad. If heater and defrost thermostat are both good you may need a defrost timer or control board.
Another item to consider is a defrost drain probe. This item attached to your heater and goes into the drain to keep it from freezing over. Good luck to you and I hope this helps you.
