In the freezer side there is a panel in the back. behind the panel are the evaporators. over the evaporators are heaters you will find one of then broken from water dropping on it the bottom one was broken on mine. put a fan to the freezer and thaw it out. get the model and serial numbers and look on ebay.com. or there is a place called http://www.repairclinic.com/
These are not hard to change but above all UNPLUG THE FRIG OR THEY MAY PUT YOU IN ONE.

Hope this helps.

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

Refrigerator/freezer quits working, I unplug it, plug it back in, and it works great for a week or so. What do I need to replace to fix this problem?


the freezer coil is probably freezing up. if so you have a bad defrost thermostat, heater, timer or board or combination of them.

Water dripping from freezer into refrigerator area and frozen water in freezer


The defrost cycle is melting ice that will not go down the drain tube in the rear of the freezer. This can be a clogged tube due to debris, organic growths or ice blocking flow. What doesn't end up dripping into the fridge ends up freezing in the freezer compartment. Make sure the fridge is level or tilted back slightly.

Unplug the fridge from power. Remove the contents of the freezer and remove the ice maker, back wall plate and floor plate in the freezer section. Remove ice build up on the floor and tray in the freezer by thawing and soaking up water. Flush hot water (use a turkey baster to get at it) at the opening of the drain hose that is connected to the tray to thaw any ice.. once flowing to the evapraor tray under the fridge, mix up 1/2 oz of bleach and 4 oz of water and pour down the tube to kill any bacteria.

Reassemble and restock the freezer. Monitor the temperature of the fresh food (34 deg) and freezer (0 deg) compartments. If you notice the temperatures start to climb, there may be a problem with the defrost timer, terminator, etc. and may require a pro's help.

Good luck!

Freezer compartment thaws out


Hi and welcome to Fixya. Once the defrost cycle is started it deos not terminate until the 60 Deg. F thermostat closes and advances the defrost timer to start the compressor. If the 60 Deg F thermostat is not functioning correctly or intermittent the unit will continue in the defrost cycle by powering the defrost heating element. Essentially what it will do is act like a food defroster vs a freezer. This is not a difficult or expensive repair.

I would recommend that the defrost thermostat be tested for proper function. Personally I would just replace it and return the unit back to normal service.

Additionally it is possible that the defrost timer could be hanging or sticking in the defrost mode.

Should you call a technician to repair the unit I am sure he would recommend the replacement of both the Defrost timer and the 60 Deg F thermostat.

I would also recommend the same to you during in home repair service. Thanks again and hopefully you understand why it is performing as it currently is.

Ice maker is getting water to the back and to water dispenser but will not make ice


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.
