Roper Fridge I have a top freezer refrigerator that keeps icing up in the freezer but isn't staying cold in the lower part. I tried defrosting it and plugging it back in and it worked better for a couple days but it didn't last. The fan appears to be running (at least until the ice builds up too much to let it spin freely) but it doesn't stay cold enough to keep food in.


You have one of the following problems which is indicated by the frost buildup. Your defrost timer has failed, or defrost heater circuit consisting of a defrost heater and defrost thermostat. Start at the defrost timer. May be located in the fridge c ... Roper Refrigerators

Ice builds up on evaporator coils. After chipping off the ice, refrigerator is cold again. This lasts only a few weeks as ice builds up. Eventually, the freezer is cold but the refrigerator is very warmer. Suspecting the evapporator fan needs replacing. Any suggestion is much appreciated.


Assuming this was originally a frost-free model, either the defrost cycle timer died or the defrost heating element died. If it's the timer, you might be able to manually start and end a defrost cycle every few days. If it's the heating element, you ... Kenmore 61042 Top Freezer Refrigerator

The refrigerator quit getting cold a couple days ago, the cold air quit coming from the freezer side to the refrigerator. Although the freezer is cool, things like the ice cream are thawing.

The fridge & freezer worked again for 3 days, last night the fridge quit getting cold again, same thing, we discovered that the coils are iced over, what can be causing this. W

GE side by side refrigerator, freezer is ice cold and the fan works. The refrigerator side does not seem to be getting cold. It is only cool no matter where I place the control for the freezer or the refrigerator. No ice blocking the air flow, but I don't feel the cold air blowing from Freezer to the refrigerator.


So the fan works on the inside of the freezer correct because this is what pushes the cold air into the refrige side if the fan is working properly then you would have most likely a defrost problem associated with one of two things you would need to ... GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator

Freezer fan does not come on . Thought that replacing the DC motor would "fix" the problem. It did not. The compressor works as the freezer gets cold, but the fan never works so the refrigerator side does not get cool. Have had a problem previously with ice maker freezing over. (Have had to shut off the icemaker and "blowdry" the frozen water from the icemaker). It may have been water or ice that got into the fan to have caused the problem? But as I stated before, I did replace the fan motor and

My Whirlpool refrigerator builds up ice in the freezer around where the cold air comes from. Eventually it starts to fill the bottom of the freezer with clear ice. It has done this almost from since it was about 3 years old. It was serviced once and the men melted the ice and it worked normal for about a year then it did it again. Now when it does that we empty the refrigerator and shut it off for 3 or 4 days and it works fine for about 6 months. Help.


You should manually defrost fridge/freezers every 6 months for optimum performance.also fill any spare capacity with clean waste foam, cuts down on all that cold air dropping the floor/warm air filling void (i put foam in plastic bags. works for me ...

It is a Samsung 2 Door Fridge - Model SRS615DP, bought around 2003. The cooling fan in the refrigerator compartments gets noisy as a result of ice build up. 3 Days ago the refrigerator stopped working whilst we were away for the weekend. Three times now I have dismantled the inside of the fridge to thaw the ice from the condensor and fan. Reading peoples blogs on Samsung fridges it appears that the problem may be the insulation surrounding the polystyrene compartment on which the fan is attache

I also noticed that the ice in the ice maker looks like it's melting yet the ice box is cold and the refrigerator part appears to be working; it's cold too. I can hear what I think the compressor and fan kicking on every now and then and water does come from the water dispenser. I found water dripping out of the ice shoot and a pud

Westinghouse aurora fridge/freezer. Freezer still works fine, however the fridge won't run cold and doesn't respond to thermostat changes. Repair guy said the fan was on the way out and replaced it. Made no difference. Air flow into the fridge only seems sufficient when the freezer door is open. Have had the condenser cover off to de-ice twice. Ice build up was enough to stop the fan rotating.
