There is a burnt smell emanating from my freezer. The ice maker isn't making more ice. My freezer had been left ajar and there was freezer burn on several items. We shut the freezer and after two days I noticed the ice in the ice maker had solidified into a big lump when it refroze. When I tried to take it out I had to pull on the ice container to get it unstuck. After this I noticed the lights in the freezer flickered a few times, and then the smell started. I cannot turn the ice maker of

I have what appears to be a water leak of some kind in the freezer section near the ice making part of the freezer. You can tell because the freezer is building up ICE all around the bottom of the ICE crusher. When you open the Freezer you see a large ICE build-up right at the bottom of the ICE holder where the grinding mechanism is located. Everything else works fine, is there any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

The food in our freezer has been icing up quickly. Then recently noticed the vegatables in the Refrigerator bins were all frozen and ruined. On inspection of the freezer, we noticed a sheet of ice running down the right side of the freezer as if water had leeaked in the freezer. All the shelves are stuck from the ice sheet. Then we noticed the ice cream had melted and refroze. As if the temperature was fluctuating. We had the temp set as recommended at O for the freezer and 37 for the Refrigera

The freezer coil in the lower freezer section freezes up with ice. I have the upper section at 5C and the freezer 18C. We first notice that there is water under the fruit drawers and the fridge seems to be running a lot. This tells me that it is time to take the inside of the freezer apart and apply heat to the coil until it is free of ice. The coil is so full of ice that the freezer has to be heated to remove the outer panels as the ice is holding the panels.

At first we though the freezer or refrigerator door had been left open. Ice was melting and dripping in freezer, food was thawed out, but the temperature in the freezer still indicated it was zero +/- 2 degrees F. We set the door alarm to see if we could determine when it was being left open. We dumped the ice and initiated quick ice function. Good ice was made and temp in the freezer returned to normal for a few days, then the ice began to melt again. We pulled the refrigerator away from the wa

We have a frigidaire side by side fridge. Tonight I opened the freezer and everything was iced over. We removed the ice tray and blew hot air using a hair dryer into the square hole in the back.

Yes, it sure can. The icemaker turns on a heater to warm the mold, allowing the ice cubes to be pushed out. If the icemaker does not finish it's cycle for any reason, the heater keeps adding more heat, which will affect the refrigerators performanc ... Refrigerators

When the freezer defrosts it partially melts the ice cubes, the ice builds up between the inside back and the outside back. This ice gets hit by the fan making an awful grinding noise water leaks out of the bottom of freezer onto the floor. and the bottom of the inside of the freezer fills up with ice. This happens at least once a week and we have to take it all apart and clean out all the ice and start over,and hope we are home to hear it grinding the next time and shut it off. It is only 1 yr

We are in Australia and have had an Amana XRSS287BW fridge freezer with ice maker for 5 years. The freezer is icing up near the ice maker, the condensor is not icing up. It appears to ice up and the fan hits the ice making a noise? We have had a repairman fix it, he has been back 3 times and now believes the problem is with the ice maker. He has advised we will need a complete new ice maker. I find it difficult to believe that the ice maker cannot be repaired. Regards, Bob Beck
