SOURCE: Amana French Door Refrigerator "on" but no cooling; freezer still works

There are 2 possible problems. One is the defrost cycle is not working properly this is usually indicated by a large amount of frost on the back freezer panel. If so, the circuit will have to be repaired and the evaperator thawed to remove the ice build up. The other is the fresh food damper is not working properly this is behind the "lump" in the back of the fridge compartment above the top shelf, remove the louver panel to see if it is open or closed. closed will be warm open should be cold. The water dispenser reservoir is probably frozen due to poor air circulation.

There is a screw down foot in front of each forward wheel under the fridge. You can access this by looking under the front corners.

SOURCE: I have a kenmore three door refrigerator ice crystal built

This is usually due to an air leak at the freezer door/drawer. Check out the gasket and if it is bad, out of place replace it. If the gasket looks good go around the door with a dollar bill closing the bill in the door. The dollar bill should resist being pulled out. If you find spots where the bill slips out easily this is a spot where the door/drawer is not sealing good and letting in air causing the frosting.

SOURCE: Neverending ice cystals buildup in freezer

Hi Rachel,

Opened 3-10 times per day, per week, per month?

There is only one possible source of these ice crystals -- moisture precipitating from the air (condensate) -- this air is coming from outside the freezer. It's either getting in when the freezer is opened or coming in around the gasket.

You might try a very thin coat of vaseline on the gasket to get a better seal.

We have ice sheets forming under cool select pantry drawer of our refrigerator. What should we do?


the fan usually stops working due to ice obstruction when the defrost terminator has gone out and u get ice build up? u can check the terminator with a multi meter for continuity but do not check at room temperature. stick the terminator in cup of ice water for 20 minutes then check it for continuity, should be closed when cold and open at room temperature. May also need to check the defrost timer, u can get by and test manually by placing a small screw driver into the tiny slot or hole underneath the timer and turn slowly clockwise till u hear 1 click. this will engage ur defrost cycle in about 15 minutes u should be able to come back and feel the heat in freezer as it melts the ice providing ur terminator is not bad?

Ice buildup in frig above evap coils. Defrost coils seem to work, at least on manual. Samsung mdl RF266AES/XAA


If the defrost element is working the you have to totally defrost the evaporator, kick it back into life & all should be ok. Air intruding into freezer could be the cause of the frost, make shure the seals are ok & in place, make sure the doors are closing all the way.
