I have an Amana bottom freezer refrigerator model BQ20RBL that builds up ice on the back wall of the freezer. There is no cold air entering the refrigerator upper box unless I also open the freezer door. The defrost timer (behind the front grill) does turn, and I have checked the contacts: OK. I have manually turned the defrost timer switch to 'defrost' but the frost does not go away.
Two weeks ago, when this problem first occurred, I emptied the freezer and refrigerator, and let it thaw. T
Typically with this model it is either the timer or the defrost thermostat.This is behind the back wall of the freezer. It is attached in series with the element. It is designed to open when the heater gets hot enough. The part is about t ...
I have a Jenn Air JSD2789DES Refrigerator. It is about a 2000 model. The center mullion/bar is very hot. I checked the fan that cools the coils and blows air across the compressor and it works fine. I vacuumed everyting although it didn;t look bad. The compressor is also really hot. The fins that cool the freezer inside the unit are not iced up. The defrost heating element was replaced several years ago. Any suggestions on what could be causing this excessive heat or how to fix it?
The refrigerator side of the freezer/refrigerator is not keeping cold. Is there a sensor that is keeping the refrigerator from cooling? I have defrosted the freezer and it helped for a day. Cool air was coming from the freezer side. Now the refrigerator is getting hot again.

Upper freezer compartment is working OK, but no cooling in the lower refrigerator section. I defrosted the entire unit over 12 hrs and still no cooling in the refrigerator compartment. I cannot feel blowing or transfer of cold air in any part of the refrigerator box. I removed the lower cardboard panel on the back of the unit and cleaned out the dust. The fan is working fine, silent and no vibrations. The coolant tube leading out of the compressor is cold to the touch. Please let me know what th

Hot refrigerator I have similar problem with the Samsung RS2630SH. I had the intermittent squealing noise and now the feeezer side outside wall is hot to the touch as is the center divider. I plan on trying to replace the fan and motor as others have. In meantime, I've removed the back bottom panel and have hooked up a box fan to keep air moving. It has helped to get the side cool. The center panel is improved but still warm to the touch. I have also filed a Consumer Prodict Incident Report with

I WAS ON YESTERDAY WITH THE SAME APPLIANCE A JENN AIR REFRIGERATOR JCD2389GEB. I NEED TO START AT THE BEGINNING.
EVERY COUPLE OF WEEKS MY REFRIGERATOR ON TH ICE BOX SIDE WOULD GET WARM THE FREEZER WAS COLD AND ICE WOULD BUILD UP ON THE COILS, SO I WOULD DEFROST IT WITH MY HAIR DRYER. THAT WOULD LAST ABOUT THREE WEEKS. OUR FRIEND WHO DOES SOME WORK ON A/C AND APPLIANCES SAID IT WAS LOW ON FREON SO HE ADDED IT LAST WEEK. EVER SINCE THEN OUR ICE MAKER HAS NOT MADE ICE, THERE IS KNOW WATER. HE SAID
What you started out with was a defrost issue,adding freon made your problem worse,pressure on the low side when fully charged should be around 0 to 3 lbs. the most common problem with theses units is the adaptive defrost control sits in t ...
Our Beverage Air SP60-18M sandwich station refrigerator is 10 years old, it wasn't cooling so the tech came out, cleaned the coil and did an overall checkup, it is still not cooling. The coil iced up so we defrosted it. We tried incremental increase in cooling and this did not work. Any suggestions?
Your system could have a low refrigerant charge. This exact symptom often appears when the condenser coil is very dirty, the refrigerant has leaked out somewhere, the unit appears to be cooling OK, but probably not great. Then a technician comes ou ...

My Jenn Air side by side I think has two problems. I have problems with the defrosting unit in the freezer area not working. I have temporarily been manually defrosting it. About a week ago the refrigerator just stopped working all together. I removed everything and turned the settings to off. Afew days later I went in the refrigerator to let it air out and turned the settings back to normal from the off position. The next day the refrigerator is now working. What's up with this
Manually defrosting is not a solution you will need to fix this - you have a faulty control board, you might have reset things temporarily but problem WILL return eventually and you will spoil your food. Common causes are control board, your defrost ...

I have a Maytag Model # MSD2957AEB side by side refrigerator and the coils in the freezer part each month seem to freeze up. This causes the cold vent leading to the refrigerator to stop the cold air flowing into the refrigerator. Each month I need to open the freezer side remove the back cover and defrost the coils. I assume it is the defroster not working correctly. Is the defroster the small cylindrical metal piece connected to the defrost element or is the defrost mechanism somewhere els

Last spring, it would not defrost and of course the refrigerator was warm.
I replaced the Adaptive Defrost Control (ADC)and that solved the problem. This week, the defrost problem returned. I defrosted the freezer with a hair dryer and reassembled and turned the freezer and slid the freezer and refrigerator controls back to the middle.
The compressor did not turn back on. (It was working before I defrosted.)I pulled the ADC to check for trouble cod
Hi Tom, I am Kelly. \015\012\015\012 If the 60 Deg thermostat or wiring has failed it will never come out of defrost. The thermostat is what tells the ADC that the defrost cycle is complete. When the thermostat never closes.... the circ ...

I have a Jenn-Aire side-by-side refrigerator JCD2389GE - that also has the freezer cold but no cold air into the refrigerator side. We have defrosted the coild in the freezer twice (about 3 weeks apart) Internet searches seem to point to the Adaptive defrost control board. I am not sure where it is located on my unit. Shall we also replace the thermostat at the same time? Thanks

I opened the door on GE Profile side by side refrigerator this morning. Not only was the the refrigerator not blow cool air. It was actully blowing hot air, it was like opening the oven.

Amana SCD22JL Replacing the Defrost Thermostat fixed the fan problem. However I am getting very little air flow into the refrigerator side.
The Defrost is working, the evaporator fan is running, the evaporator coils are not iced up, and the damper that controls the air flow on the refrigerator side is fully open.
It sounds as though you have a refigeration problem if there is no cold on the coil, however you hav sad that you have changed the sensor which would bring in the fan when cold enough. As far as airflow I have been doing this a while on American cabi ...

My Amana refrigerator is not cooling either on freezer and refrigerator side. The coils below the fridge was very dirty (a lot of dust bunnies). I cleaned them with a vacuum and compressed air. I ran the defrost in the recommended fashion. The defrost cycle is automated and initiated by activating the fridge light 4 times in 8 seconds the defrost heater came on and a visual inspection did not show any frost with the exception of a small amount on what seemed to be a defrost thermostat a the top

Freezer section is cold but refrigerator section will not cool because of ice build up on evaporator coils in freezer and air can not flow to refrigerator side. I manually defrosted it two weeks ago but frost again built up on coils. I feel I have either a bad defrost timer, defrost heater or defrost limit switch. Which one of these items is usually broken? How do I figure this out?
