The freezer is self defrosting - the problem is that when the freezer defrosts it drain tube that the defrost water goes in at the back of the freezer freezes up and the water collects on the bottom of the freezer and turns to ice and keeps on collecting. In time the ice buildup get so big that the water leaks out the bottom of the door gasket.

Jenn-Aire Refrigerator Model JCD2389GEW
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 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

Whirlpool S21S4d side by side fridge freezer. Serial#=110507015236.
This unit alarmed and warmed up I found the evaprator in the freezer frosted so it wasn't Defrosting, the Defrost element tested ok, I've changed the freezer temp sensor, the Defrost thermostat and the Main rear pcb. The unit went fine for a couple of weeks and is now back to not Defrosting and has the same temp alarm beeping and flashing.
Hi.I cannot track the model through the serial. I think we are talking about an Australian model here.If the evaporator coils were frozen, then it is likely a defrost problem, full-stop. I could invent about electronic faults, ...

Hi I was trying to defrost the small freezer in my small Beko fridge. Had been defrosting naturally since 10am, now 7pm & it just wouldn't all defrost. So was using a knife to remove last & pierced the tube in the freezer & it started hissing.
Now my question is can I still use the fridge. Never used the freezer anyways so it's not much loss there. But will the fridge below still be useable??? Or do we have to get a whole new mini fridge?
You are leaking refrigerant so eventually your Beko fridge will be useless ...

I have a Whirlpool/Kenmore Model 106.8607312 and the refrigerator section is not cooling but the freezer section is working. There is a lot of ice in the freezer section so i'm guessing the defrosting is not working. When i opened the freezer section to uncover the back it was covered in ice. I unplugged everything and let it melt. However i can't find the defrost timer to test if it works. I read somewhere that it may be be part of the ice maker. Can you help me find the defrost timer?

Magic Chef refridgerator with small built in freezer model#MCBR 980W. Defrosting instructions unclear; red button suppose to be pushed in for defrosting the small freezer, How is it suppose to actually work? If depressed and you leave it to do it's own thing, It turns its self off before the ice is melted off the freezer and it all just refreezes again. Do you have to turn off the temperature gauge of the fridge also? Do you need to leave all doors open/closed when defrosting?? Any help would

Freezer is defrosting and keeps buzzing on and off. I assume it is the defroster kicking in. This seems to happen when I buy groceries. I have Thanksgiving dinner in my freezer (a lot of money there) and it is thawed. I need to find out how to disable the defroster or re-set it. I have tried to turning the freezer off for an hour, I have moved it several feet from the wall and removed half the items inside. I don't know if somehow I am blocking a vent when I load the groceries and it is causing

Freezer coils were a block of ice! Remover rear freezer panel, defrosted with heat gun.
Freezer temp was set too high. Could this cause the icing?
Shouldn't the defrost cycle have handled it?
How do you test the defrost function? There is a timer somewhere. Also an actual heater?
An improperly sealing door gasket can cause that. Outside air will circulate past the coils and humidity in the air will condense and freeze there. Normal "defrost" generally cannot overcome that volume of ice. Additionally, the sensor on the coils i ...

Freezer GE model tfx25nrdaww has a freezer problem. When unit defrosts it condenses water and cubes begin to melt. Then after defrost it freezes condensate and ice cubes together. Motor to move ice out is frozen also. Refrigerator works fine. Is the freezer fan suppose to operate during defrost cycle?

GE Monogram ZIS36 Side by Side refrigerator built-in about 15 years old. Defrost problem.
Freezing compartment has ice running down the sides. Both refrigerator and freezer work fine. I have cleared the drain tube of debris and cleaned condenser. Problem persists.
Do I replace:

2. Drain Trough Heater

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.

Defrost element Had issues with warm frig. I defrosted freezer and found defrost heater element blown. I replaced the element, defrost timer and some kind of two wire round thing that clips to a small pipe in the freezer. Now that two wire thing that I replaced have no idea what it was and it had to be spliced in. Now that all that is replaced everything is working.

Frozen evaporator From what I can tell looking at the wiring diagram this unit initiates defrost with a defrost timer. I can manually initiate defrost by following the instructions on the back of the diagram, but this appears to be the only way to defrost this freezer. If left alone...the evaporator completely freezes up and the defrost tray turns into a solid block of ice. That's when everything in the freezer and fridge begin to melt (go bad). All of the wiring has good connections (checke
If you can initiate the defrost cycle my manually turning the knob then your problem is with the defrost timer. $77 seems unusually high...try googling appliance parts, there are many online stores that offer discounted parts. ...

Where is the defrosting clock on my ZI 920/8ff (PCM 925771669) (type B257726)fridge freezer. I've checked out the defrosting heater and its ok. I need to find out where the defrosting clock is located in/on the carcase of the fridge freezer and secondly what do i remove to get at it.
I teach electronics and need to know if the defrosting clock is a repairable part and if so is there a circuit diagram available?
Many thanks for all your advice and help.

The defrost timers are sometimes located in the same area as the temperature controls. A cover in this area will have a round hole giving access to the clutch head screw used to actuate the timer cycle. These timers are not field serviceable and are ...
The freezer is cold, but the fridge wasn't. I took the back panel of the freezer off and there was ice on the evaporator coils. I defrosted the coils to remove the ice, and the fridge got cold.
I understand that the problem may be the defrost timer, or the t'stat. Couldn't it also be the defrost heater (at the evaporator coils?
I did a short test by turning the defrost timer until the compressor shut off and checking for heat at the evaporator coils (I can't see the heater from the access at t

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?
