Question about Whirlpool ET1FHTXM Top Freezer Refrigerator
Hi! This Whirlpool No Frost refrigerator with top freezer builds up heavy ice every 10 days on the back section of the freezer. Then the cold air flow stops to the refrigerator and it no longer cools and spoils the food. The defrost works. After removing all of the food and defrosting it thoroughly, it becomes okay for about week and a half and the problem appears again. Please help. Many thanks.
Your sure the defrost cycle works? sounds to me its not. you need to remove the freezer back and check the defrost components. or put it in the defrost cycle and see if it is working. to get that much frost as you describe the dor would have to be left open. also check all door seals. let me know what you find and we can go from there

Tips for a great answer:
Normally when frost build up occurs it's because warmer outside air is getting into the freezer and the moisture from that warm air cools and condensates then freezes into frost or ice. You either have a bad seal like the other listing states try leveling the front a little higher than the back. Or you may have an issue with the defrost heater, thermostat or timer. Do you have a light that comes on from time to time? If so you have an auto defrost unit. If there is no light you may not have a frost free freezer which means you will have to remove the frost manually.
