Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

I have a GE Hotpoint side by side Refrigerator/Freezer, Modle SM25GFTA SA. It is 5 years old. Over the past 2 years the water line has been freezing up, to remedy, I have to take a hair dryer to the bottom inside freezer door and run it up and down for about 30 mins. It has happened 5 times now. What do you think is the problem?

Maytag side by side refridgerator MSB2354DRW is leaking water, related to ice building up on bottom of freezer compartment. Water appears to be dripping out through bottom of door. Water is dripping from inside back wall of fridge compartment, running down and collecting on bottom of freezer compartment. Is there a problem with auto defrost cycle, or a clogged drain?

Last night I came home to find water all over the floor under my fridge, a bottom freezer kenmore. The whole thing was iced over inside, and the door partially open. I cleaned it up and closed the door. This afternoon I came back to find water all over the floor again, the freezer ice-bound, and water running out of the icemaker. The icemaker stopped making ice about a year ago, although it sometimes makes noises like it is making ice. Right now, there are ice cubes in the freezer, so it must ha

I have an Amana side by side model ARS2664BW. The unit is about 8 years old. The water dispenser on the freezer door quit working and the cooling units inside the freezer and frig are not working proper. There appears to be two cooling units in the freezer and two in the frig. The two bottom cooling units appear to be working but the top two cooling units are not working. Can anyone me with some guidance. Don't know if this is a DIY job or if I need to call the pros. Thank you.

I have a Jenn-Air refrigerator, Model JCD2389DE, and in the last two weeks we have noticed water puddling on the floor in front of the "freezer side" door. We thought maybe the water dispenser "stuck" on but this morning I saw water dripping out. I opened the door and water was running down through the inside of the freezer and coming out through the bottom door seal. The water dispenser and the ice maker appear to be working properly. Please give me your thoughts...


Mine did this a few years ago. I had to call service out to replace the system board. I guess it's a common problem. Something on the board fails and the defrost operation does not work properly, resulting in rapid meltdown of ice build-up and puddle ... Jenn-Air Refrigerators

Our side by side GE, the freezer compt is emitting a very loud "whistling" sound when the motor is running. We've had the fridge for about 5 years and this just started a few months ago. We pulled it out and cleaned all the coils in the bottom (back is sealed) and cleaned the inside. The noise is coming from inside the compartment. Any ideas on what is causing or a fix?

I have a GE side by side refrigerator/freezer Model GSS20IEPPA and the freezer is not getting cold. The fan is running fine and i checked the drain at the bottom and it is not plugged.

The frost buildup indicates a defrost problem. The evaporator coil behind the cover on the back wall inside the freezer will ice up under normal conditions. Every 8 to 10 hours for around 20 minutes the defrost timer (or in most newer models th ... GE GSS20IEP Side by Side Refrigerator

Have a 17 year old Kelvinator N640T side by side no frost fridge freezer. Runs well except ice builds up on the bottom of the freezer compartment and when it builds up too much some melts spilling water onto the floor of the kitchen. Were advised that it could be the door seals (have now replaced them with new ones)but problem is still there except that the ice does not now build up as quickly as before. Were also advised that it could be the defrost mechanism. Any comments welcomed. Thank


You problem lies in a blocked drain or a broken drain connection to the metal drip tray at the bottom of the freezer heat exchanger. You could try blowing the drain out from beneath the fridge, which is difficult as it is very hard to access. Alterna ... Refrigerators

My northland 48" side by side is not cooling on either reefer or freezer sides. Everything either defrosted/melted or got warm. The system is running and blowing only ambient air inside and the normal warm air from the external vent on top. The door light switches work fine. It's only 3 years old. What could be the problem?


You could have something as simple as frozen evaporator due to defrost system malfuntion, bad compressor electricals or failed compressor. I believe the sealed system in that unit comes with a good warranty. I would contact Connie at the factory, 80 ... Northland D48 / G48 Side by Side Refrigerator

A week ago the stuff in the bottom 'veg keeper' was getting too cold so I cut back both the fridge/freezer problem to 'orig settings.) I did put a ton of food in the refrig for Easter (maybe it held the door open on the right side, like my sis-in-law suggested? I don't know.) This was 7 hours ago. I thought the freezer was ok, but just now I found 'ice built up' (crystals.. snow) inside the back of the freezer dept. I hated that. My 'bread' in the freezer was halfway unthawed. It's l4 years old.
