Sounds like your defrost sensor is acting up because after you unplug it then it works for a week or so.

Amana refrigerator, bottom freezer. Back keeps icing up. I have unplugged and thawed it twice, within 2 weeks it is frozen again and freezer warm


This is a defrost problem most likely caused by a defective defrost thermostat. It is located in the freezer compartment behind back wall on top right hand side of coils and usually has a brown and an orange wire connecting to it. It should have continuity when checking with a volt/ohm meter when it is frozen and read open when it is warm.
I have seen many of the newer electronic temperature model bottom mounts with defective control boards as well that cause the fridge to skip the defrost cycle.
Good luck!

Kenmore Elite Model # 106.566.82501 Side by Side Top end of the freezer side will thaw first, then refridgerator gets warm, and then bottom half of freezer will thaw. It has done this twice in 6 months...


Depending on the age of your refrigerator and cost of replacement parts I think right now would be a good time to decide what you will do. I have a feeling that the problem is related to the main control board inside the fresh food compartment, part number 2313180. It's over priced and if you need to pay someone to put it in I believe you could buy a less expensive refrigerator without electronics and have just a simple defrost timer and it would last longer. My answer is not a fix it's bad news that anyone would put a price on a part like that and expect the consumers to be happy about it, Sea Breeze

MY GE PROFILE REFRIGERATOR IS WARM, FREEZER IS FINE.


i think its not the frz drain hole blocking up but a fault with the defrost tray heater. the tray heater should keep the defrosted frost as water to drain away. it sounds as though the tray heater is not working therefore letting the water freeze as it is escaping thorough the drain hole. i would check this out by defrosting the unit and inserting a flexi rod into the otherside of the drain hole (above the compressor usually) and after clearing it if it freezes up again check out the defrost/heater system.

FRESH FOOD COMPARTMENT TOO WARM


it could be a defrost heater problem . the heating cycle is not defrosting the ice that is why your having frost build up. the heater could be damaged, thermosdisc damaged, electronic timer module damaged.try thawing it up by unpluging it for a day or two until there is no more water dripping at the back then try it again, im sure the refrigerator section would cool again for a week or two before it wouyld go back to the same problem. dont forget to bring back the setting to 5 for freezer and 35 for refrigerator in order for the thermostat to work.

Kenmore 596.75509400 bottom freezer


JH, did you notice if the freezer back panel was full of frost first time it started thawing? If so you may have a defrost problem. I've had 4 of these control boards (jazz boards) fail on this model in the last week. Behind the front grill, there should be a tech sheet that will show you how to run the componet tests at the control board. Part number for the board is 12002339. This board controls compressor, defrost, damper and fans. Catriver.
