Side by side refrig. side not working;freezer freezing up

\015 The evaperator coil is freezing up and then the refigerator side stops cooling. We have to take everything out of the freezer and defrost the coil. When we plug it back in then the refrigerator starts cooling again. Any ideas?\015

Answers :

The unit is not defrosting. Either the defrost clock is defective or the defrost heater is not working. Defrost clock is normally located behind the bottom kick panel. Use a large standard screwdriver and turn the center screw clockwise very slowly until the compressor stops. Wait 20 to30 minutes the compressor should restart, if not the defrost clock is defective. Checking rhe heater you'll need a vom meter or amp meter.

My Maytag side-by-side refrig is acting weird. The freezer side is freezing alright and the refrig side isn't. Now, I took apart the inside covers on the freezer side and the condenser was all iced up. The fan above it was running fine. I shut everything down to its lowest setting, took a hair dryer and proceeded to rid the condenser of all the ice. I noticed it has what appears to be a heating element under the condenser. I've since returned all setting to their previous setting and I await th

The water tube in my GE (side by side refrig) ice maker keeps freezing. When the ice tray does not get the water, it calls for more. the water ends up spraying all over the inside and freezing because the tube keeps freezing up. If I take the tube out once a day I can sometimes prevent this. I can never leave the ice maker on for extended periods of time. I have lowered the freezer temp and reduced the water feed to try and help but this has not helped.


I'd say that micbeth1981 has some good thoughts on this one. I'd also suggest checking to make sure the tube that extends from the exterior of the freezer into the icem ... Refrigerators

The side by side freezer compartment water keeps freezing up in the bottom of the freezer - i took the back panel off and tried to melt the ice which has been accumulating and thus causing the water which would normally drain to freeze up. within a day it was back to the same problem - dont want to have to pay another $150 for a repairman.

I have a Kenmore 363.58897894 Side by side. Fresh food side temp is around 60 degrees. Freezer will still freeze to low to mid teens. Although I am a novice at refrig repair, it seems that there must be a air duct from the freezer side to the fresh food side probably controlled by the temp control which may be the problem. I've checked to make sure all the little ducts are clean and unobstructed. I've vaccumed the lint from under and around the coils as well as behind the unit. Any guidance wou
