Remove the food and ice maker ( if equiped ) from freezer . Remove the screws holding the rear panel , and remove the panel . Using a hair dryer , start in the middle , below the coils , and defrost until you see the drain hole . Use hot water to help clear the hole . When water starts to flow down , use a piece of hose , inserted into the drain , and blow thru it , to remove any debris built up inside the drain line . I would also get a piece of solid ALUMINUM wire , about 9" long , completly stripped of insulation and insert it into the drain hole as far as possible , without any force . Wrap the other end about 1-2 turns , around the black rod ( defrost heater ) , just above the drain hole . When the refrig goes into defrost , the heat will transfer to the aluminum wire , keeping the drain from freezing up again due to ice .

Have a Whirlpool top-freezer model ET19TKXL ... the past few days neither the freezer or refrigerator have been very cold, but it acts like it is trying to function. Have adjusted the controls and such to no avail. It seems as though the refrigerant part is ok but maybe something wrong with the fan that actually does the blowing of the cold air? There is a panel at the rear bottom -- is the fan accessed here, and how can I check it? If it is the fan/blower, could a good cleaning of any dust p

Admiral model LFT2112ARW freezer on-top refrigerator: The refrig compartment stays just below room temp. The freezer accumulates ice. The unit is in the garage, in a non-air-conditioned space. Clearly not enough air is getting from the freezer into the refrigerator compartment, but when I clear the ice, it still has the same problem. The unit runs all the time trying to get cold. Could this be a problem with the unit never going into defrost mode? One guy told me to leave the freezer door open,
Check the defrost heater, timer and t-stat. You should probably let it thaw out completely for at least a full two days to thaw out all the ice. Then check the parts. Look at the heater to make sure it's not broken or burned out. When you decide whic ...
I have a 4 years old AEG No frost Model S 75398 KG3. It has two sides: refrigerator and freezer.
Starting today my refrigerator stopped working. But only the top side. The freezer is working fine. Which could be the problem? What should I check before call a specialist?
Thanks in advance for your help.
Check to see if there is ice build up on the back wall of the freezer, if so the problem is most likely the defrost thermostat. Fairly easy to change yourself.\015\012 ...

We just replaced the defrost timer on our Kitchenaid built-in 48 inch refrigerator Model #KSSC48MHS00, on Monday. Now it seems to be cooling properly, but is still barely making ice. We removed the top front grill on Wednesday, and then it made little ice, as if it's too warm with it in place. It still isn't working optimally. The freezer temp is now about 20 degrees, and the fridge still seems like it's not cold enough, set at Level 4. Could there be another thing that may be going out?
Hello.. Put the freezer at it's coldest setting. Within 24 hours you should have a bin full of ice. If you do not, you may have gotten the wrong timer, or a faulty timer. J. ...
Our refrigerator is cooling and our freezer is freezing, but there is a leak coming from the freezer area that is dripping down into the refrigerator that just keeps getting worse and worse. Appears that it may be coming from the filter area in the middle of the top of the freezer. It started small and dripped down on to the top left shelf, now I am keeping towels on every shelf to keep them somewhat dry. The freezer area appears also to be getting frost on the food as well. model gts22wcp

This afternoon, we noticed a burning - electrical type smell coming from behind the refrigerator; more specifically from a small access panel on the bottom right side of the freezer. We checked that nothing was burning on the outside of the grill, so we took off the access panel and could see that there is a fan that is not turning. Should it be turning? and could this be the source of the smell? our local repa

These doors are not water cooled. Is there water in the drip pan? Likely not and the drain is froze over with ice. you will have to remove the rear panel inside the freezer and clean the drain. There is most likely ice under the freezer floor that ne ...
