I have Amana SRD522VW fridge freezer (side by side doors). The fridge freezer has stopped working even at max settings. There is a lot of ice on the bottom back inner panel of the freezer surrounding the vent area (inide the frezer). A repairman came and defrosted that and then fitted some part which made it work for about a day or so and then it was faulty again. Once again there was all that ice again on the freezer vent at the bottom. The repairman came again and changed the same part (having

I have a N510T Fridge/freezer. It developed a large block of ice at the back of the fridge just below the freezer section. I have removed this block of ice but want to check behind the plastic panel between the back of the shelves and the fridge wall to check and make sure there is no ice left in this space. Is it possible to remove this plastic panel and how do I do it? Thanks Stuart

Hi. We have a Fisher & Paykel E521T fridge. We've had pooling on the floor from melted ice from underside of top of main cabinet dripping down onto shelves to bottom of cabinet to the floor, and significant ice build up in top freezer section.

Fridge is on top and freezer is on bottom. Fridge is not cooling and freezer is not froze up and the fan is working. The air vents are not plugged and the air is not being returner to the lower cabin. When the freezer door is open just a bit the air blows out the inside back of the fridge. But when you close the freezer the air flow stops. So the damper has been checked and I can't seem to find the problem. And again there is no ice bilt up in any area as I have had to take the inide back panel

Can't get temp in fridge to go below 50 F. Freezer works fine and makes ice. It started when our area had a heat wave and the inside of our house was 85+ most of the day. The ice maker stopped working, so I pulled the top panel and vacuumed the condensor. The fan is running, but the temp guage doesn't kick in until '10' is selected on the dial. Once I cleaned the condensor, the freezer started working and it began making ice, but the fridge continues to stay near 50f.

My Whirlpool refrigerator is SxS (MOD: ED5FHAXS002, SER: SUB5042375). The freezer side is OK. However, the other side stops working and gets warm. By put my hand at the damper (at top left corner of the fridge), I do not feel the cold air blowing out. That means air damper is not opening up and allowing the cold air from the freezer to be blown into the fresh food section. I unplug the fridge, and let the ice melted for a day.

My frigidaire side by side started making noises a couple days ago. Sound coming from ice maker location (maybe behind it?). It stopped making ice too. The next day lots of ice was made and then the noise went away but both the freezer and fridge started warming up and the ice was melting. By the next morning, both sides were working again and the noise was back. Ice maker filled with ice and kept making ice so I turned it off. Now both sides are warming yet again, ice melting and sound is gone

I have a Siemens fridge freezer which keeps icing up. We called out an engineer last year who told us we needed to defrost it. He took off the back panel in the freezer and I don't think he replaced it properly. About every 4 weeks the freezer temperature drops and the fridge temperature goes up. We switch it off and thoroughly defrost it for three or four days ( we also empty the evaporator tray at the rear of the unit).

I have water leaking under freezer side of door. I turned the ice maker off, turned off the water to the fridge, cleaned out the ice behind the panels, and put it all back together. Every couple of days I chip the ice off of the bottom of freezer; if I forget I get a puddle of water on my hard wood floor. The plug is in the drain hole. Is the heat element suppose to evaporate everthing when it goes through the defrost cycle? How do I quit having water run all over my floor?

Hi My GE Monogram Fridge isn't cooling very fast. It takes forever for it to get to 37 F. The freezer works fine. I have noticed frost build up in the fridge (not freezer) near the back (there is a vent or a panel there). When I blow dry it, it melts the ice and then works fine for a few days. It is a sidby side fridge. Any ideas what might cause this, could this be a problem with the sealed refrigeration unit?


Sorry to hear about your problem. Sounds like you have a defrost issue. Hence your unit is not defrosting. All of this apply's if your freezer side has ice on it. If not. you have other issues, this does sound funny, but this is why your ... GE Monogram ZFSB26DRSS Stainless Free-Standing Refrigerator with Dispenser
