It sounds like your system might be low on coolant. Check the pressure of the main line and check it against the specs. You may have a leak in the system.

Not staying cool


sounds like it is either low on Freon or the compressor is going out. The blowing ice cold is an indicator that it may be freezing up because the low Freon. when it stops blowing cold, turn it to fan only mode and see if it gets colder again. If that is the case then the unit is low on freon and freezing up. I know that sounds confusing but that is how AC works. The low freon pressure means the gas is expanding too fast and the air flow cannot take up the cold from the evaporator fast enough. Turning the compressor off and keeping the fan on will alow the room air to take up the cold.

Kitchenaid fridge, french door, bottom freezer. Freezer door was left open, now rails for ice bin remain frozen, difficult to pull out.


take the food out of the freezer,shut down the machine or just unplug it,get a hair dryer and hit the tracks and check the ceiling where the light is,usually ice builds up there to if the door was left open.also blow the air at the back wall,the air ducts could have froze up and the fridge will get warm,all it does is there's a fan in the freezer and it blows cold air from the freezer up and into the fridge section,sometimes depending on how long the door was open is the air ducts freeze and the fan can't blow the air up into the fridge,the tracks shold melt out fast then wipe them down but i would hit the back wall for a while until you don't see any water dripping down through the slots in the back wall,should take you no more than around 30 to 40 minutes to do this,hope this helps and good luck.

I have a Whirlpool refridgerator side by side with an ice maker/water dispensor. It froze up and started making a horrible sound. I took off the back cover and the fan was hitting ice. I defrosted with a...


I think I can help you.
In the Whirpool there should be a white tube that feeds water to the ice maker.(very top left just above ice maker). Sometimes the tube can pull out or get looseCausing water to spill all over the place creating ice problems.If its not angled down ice can collect in the tube causing it to pop out etc. Not a great design.Try to push it ALL THE WAY back in and correct angle.You should be good as new.

My frigidaire side by side freezer freezes up and the filter in the refrigerator leaks water. It makes ice fine but will not freeze ice cream. theres a big clump of ice in the back which is under a cover...


the leaking water is the problem. it needs to be fixed, but till then defrost again, use a fan it speeds the process, SHUT OF WTER to ice maker. restart fridge it will work normally. now find parts needed to fix the ice maker water feed.
the leaking water overwhelms the defroster. and causes a coil freeze up, this impedes cooling and air circulation over the evaporator coils

Our refrigerator just suddenly started to make this loud grinding sound..it appears to be coming from the freezer side. I turned off the ice make and reduced the freezer temperature but it still keeps...


This could be a failure of the evaporator fan. Also maybe some ice has formed from water dripping from the ice maker and had now produced an icicle which could be hitting the fan blade of the evaporator motor. Remove back cover to the freezer/fan and check the fan operation while it is running.

Looks like water dripping from frezzer, but there isn't an ice maker hooked up in the freezer. top refridge shelf covered with water and ice


you have a blocked drain.i use a steamer to clear the drain,they cost around 50 bucks,take off the back wall.melt out ice with hair dryer,crack out as much ice that you can with plyers or hammer,gently hit it and it will crack out if the floor is a sheet of ice and a putty knife comes in handy,when you melt out and remove ice stick the tip of steamer in drain and clean the drain out,hit it for 10 seconds then stop wait a minute and hit it again,you don't want to damage the drain line it's plastic so take your time,pour hot water down drain to make sure it's clear you might have to use hair dryer and heat up the inside of ceiling in the fridge section in the middle of back wall and ceiling where the drain is, the air ducts are there also,whenwater stops dripping you'll know you melted all the ice,good luck

It seems it's collecting water in the tray and blowing it out through the top vent, dripping from the bottom inside the house and is making a sound constantly like the fan is hitting water as it blows.


AC units do take the humidity out of the air and water collects in the bottom. The unit should be tilted slightly downward on the outside so that the water runs outrside. Make sure the drain holes are clear. The pinging noise is common, the fan is hitting drops of water, nothing to be concerned about

Water doens't drain properly and sitting there,


that's fairly common for window units, it's ok to drill a small hole in the underside of the case to drain the water, just be sure you don't puncture the condenser in the process.

The fan should blow air into the heat sink. The warm air exits the heat sink at both ends. (It might work the other way, haven't tried it.)

When you have ice in your cooler, you know the thermo-electric element is working well--it's below freezing!

Ice builds up because there is water in the cooler. For example, in humid weather, you open the cooler, some humid air gets in, and the cooler temperature condenses the water. You have to empty this water, either by tipping the cooler, or using a sponge.

You can easily defrost the cooler by unplugging it for an hour or so. You know it's time to defrost when you hear the fan blades making a racket because they're hitting something--a thick buildup of ice.
