My Eurocave 283 keeps icing up. The upper back portion ices up so I unplug it and leave the door open to let it thaw. I plugged it back in this time and the temp display blinks HI and says 71 to 72 ish degrees. I have changed the charcoal filter and reset the temp to 55 but it still does this. I have a thermometer in the unit near the top that reads in the mid 60's. I am thinking the temp sensor/thermostat is bad. Thoughts?

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 fridgidaire model frs6r5esb side by side refridgerator. the freezer stopped keeping my ice cream frozen and eventually quit making ice. i checked the temp in the freezer and it was way too warm (barely freezing) i pulled off the back panel of the inside of the freezer and found that the silver coil was frozen solid in a block of ice. i defrosted as much of it as i could and got about 60% of the ice off and started everything back up and it worked great for about 3 days then i saw it

My Maytag side by side MSD2758DRW ice maker no longer makes ice. The arm was having trouble "pushing" the cubes out awhile back, so I disconnected the icemaker power coupling. I tried plugging it back in to do some troubleshooting, and the arm just keeps going around and around (no water or ice are in the tray). No water comes to fill the tray. The water dispenser in the door works fine. I previously had problems with the fill tube in the past, so that was the first thing I tried. I checked

LG side by side LFC20760 bottom freezer ice tray problem. The ice cubes build up at the rear of the tray, and when you open the freezer drawer, a few cubes fall out of the rear of the tray. It is so annoying. The fridge is level side to side and front to back, and it is not overfilling the ice tray. It just seems like a poor design where the rear tray wall is not high enough to keep the ice inside.

My ge side-by-side refrigerator/freezer isn't cooling. It started on the refrigerator side and now both sides are losing cooling capability. There is ice build up on the lower back wall of the freezer. Sounds like something with the defrost from what I've read. One guy told me I needed an Ohm meter to check the defrost thermostat and the defrost heater for continuity and whichever one reads "open" needs replaced. Does this sound right?
