I've got a six year old Kenmore side by side 106.56534400 refrigerator. Everything in the freezer melted. Refrigerator compartment is warm. Freezer fan and condenser fan underneath are both running. Condenser coils are fairly clean, brushed and vacuumed. Turned off refrigerator overnight. Restarted. Cooled and made ice for about 6 hours, before starting to melt and get warm again. Evaporator coils are clear with no ice or frost buildup. What seems to be the problem?

Hello Rene. The refrigerator is supposed to self-defrost approximately four times in every 24 hour period. If one of the components in the self-defrosting system fails, the refrigerator continues to try to cool. Eventually, though, so much fro ... Refrigerators

I have a PFS22MISBBB. refrigerator registers 60 degrees (set at 38) and freezer is 25 (set at 0).Talked to a repairman who advised me to be sure there isn't any dirt buildup around the coils; then added to look in the freezer to make sure there wasn't any ice buildup on the bottom.


The repairman is correct. If the coils are clean the next check would be to see if there is any frost buildup in the freezer section. If there is it's not defrosting. The common causes for that is a bad defrost timer, defrost heater or a defrost ther ... Refrigerators

Sub Zero 3211RFD keeps building up a layer of ice on the back of the refrigerator. The freezer is set at zero degrees and the refrigerator is set at 40 degrees.

Nothing helps.

My regrigerator (GE Profile) is not cold on the fridge side, but ok on the freezer side. I found ice buildup in the freezer so I defrosted and dryed it completely, cleaned it- including coils underneath-and turned it back on. Freezer is plenty cold, but fridge still is not. Is this possibly just a freon charge issue?
