Freezer section is cold but refrigerator section will not cool because of ice build up on evaporator coils in freezer and air can not flow to refrigerator side. I manually defrosted it two weeks ago but frost again built up on coils. I feel I have either a bad defrost timer, defrost heater or defrost limit switch. Which one of these items is usually broken? How do I figure this out?

The kenmore 8691582 refrigerator freezer has clean condenser coils, the evaporator coils are clean during operation. the freezer is at 9 degrees, and the refrigerator section is at 48 degrees when the refrigerator stops. both fans work and there is air blowing into the fridge section. the fridge section isnt cooling down enuf. any suggestions?
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?
I have a Frigidaire model PHSC39EESS5. The freezer seems to maintain temperature fine, but the refrigerator is too warm. I checked the cooling coils and they are iced up. If I melt the ice, the refrigerator works fine for a while and then warms up again. When I checked, the coils were iced up again. I can't find anything in the owner's manual except a suggestion to turn the temperature down for the refrigerator section, which doesn't work.

Refrigerator not cooling and freezer has ice on back wall. This is a Kenmore Freezer top unit. The model number is 363.9735728.
Condenser coils underneath and in back were covered with dust 1/4 inch of dust. Used vacuum and broom to remove. Waiting for ice to melt. How do you remove the panel in the back of the freezer to see the evaporator coils? Besides dust what else could be wrong?

For the past year water drains down out of the freezer onto the upper shelf in the refrigerator. I looked at the drain line in the freezer and it is frozen solid.
Now the refrigerator section is not cooling. The freezer is cold and the ice maker works but water is not draining down onto the upper shelf in the refrigerator.
I just cleaned the coils but that did not help.
What could the problem be?

Frigidaire Custom Imperial 19 cu. ft. refrigerator w/freezer at bottom and ice dumps in box on freezer door. Stopped cooling as well and so turned thermostat up to coldest setting. All meat had thawed and ruined in freezer especially in bottom of basket. Also ice in box on door will sometimes melt and water and ice will be in box. When I took the freezer apart I had to use a hair dryer to remove the insulation in front of the evaporator coil as it had flat pieces and chunks of ice attached and
Doesn't cool ..Viking Side by Side
..unit is about 7 years old
..no former trouble
..quit cooling; will only reach 40-50 degrees in freezer section
..compressor runs continuously along with compressor fan and freezer fan
.. have cleaned condenser coils at top
.. have removed cover from evaporator within freezer
.. no obvious problems
.. hard to escape conclusion that refrigerant charge has been lost
Hi,\015\012 Yes, If the evaporator was not frozen over then I agree with you. The unit has lost its refrigerant charge. The only thing you can do is to have a licensed refrigeration man find the leak, repair it and recharge it or replace the refriger ...

Our Sub-Zero is a 532. It is I believe about 23 years old. It came with the house. First the refrigerator was not cooling/working properly, & the technician who came out cleaned the coils. Then, 10 days later, our freezer goes out, and we get a new compressor. Now, we're back to the fridge not cooling properly and ice building up, and the technician says that now needs a new compressor and evaporator coil...and now the freezer, which was just "fixed", keeps warming up and is not staying at freez
Hi the simple answer is no, From what you are describing the tech that came out was an *** and should be working at a car wash not messing around with refridgerators...your problem is with the defrost system..Im going to give you directions on what t ...

I have an Amana BB20VPSE/P1321302W E fridge with the freezer on the bottom. I had an original issue where the freezer was staying cold but the refrigerator was getting warm.
I took off the cover in the freezer and the evaporator fan was not coming on. I replaced it with a new fan but the new fan still does not come on. There was ice on the cooling coil but it wasn?t heavily built up.
I then replaced the thermostat (the previous one was not misshapen ?had heard this might be an indication

I have a kitchenaid KSBS25fkbL00. 3 weeks ago I replaced the evap fan because it wasn't working. Now the refrigerator side is warm and no air was coming though the defuser. I removed the back panel in the freezer and the evaporator coils had lots of ice on them. The cool air is now flowing to the refrigerator. The defuser opens and closes when I turn the power off. Also the condenser fan was stopped when I pulled the refrigerators out from the wall. I noticed that on previous occasions. When

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. We took the cover off the coils to find that they had a lot of ice build up, we turned the freezer & fridge off for ice to melt. 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

I have two whirlpool refrigerators. Both have the same problem. The defrost drain and drain pan under the evaporator coil freeze. Then the defrost cycle causes water to drip down into the frig section. At that point I have to remove the ice maker and evapoator cover to access the frozen drain pan. After getting the ice to thaw all the way down in the drain hole, I get to put it back together and reload the freezer. Do you have any solutions for this evident design flaw. I had bought the second r

I have a GE Model PSC23MG Refrigerator. The freezer section does not get cold enough. Starting several months ago the refrigerator was noiser than normal. I appeared that the noise was coming from the evaporator fan in the freezer section. The excessive noise stopped a month or so ago but it sounds like the evoporator fan is still running. The temperature in the freezer is barely cold enough to freeze items in the freezer. This also has caused problems with the ice maker because the ice pa

I have a Whirlpool/Kenmore Model 106.8607312 and the refrigerator section is not cooling but the freezer section is working. There is a lot of ice in the freezer section so i'm guessing the defrosting is not working. When i opened the freezer section to uncover the back it was covered in ice. I unplugged everything and let it melt. However i can't find the defrost timer to test if it works. I read somewhere that it may be be part of the ice maker. Can you help me find the defrost timer?
We ll see how u need to check the defrost timer....Before testing the defrost timer, unplug the freezer to avoid an electrical shock hazard.A mechanical defrost timer controls the defrost cycle of the appliance. In older models, the timer ...

The light bulb in the refrigerator section is also not working. In the freezer section in the bottom it gets iced up. Is this a problem with the control board?
You have a bad control board. The control board is not hard to replace. It is located in the bottom of the unit inside the plastic control board housing on the back of the refrigerator. Just make sure the power is disconnected and ...
Our refrigerator is not cooling at all. The freezer is working fine, but no cool air is getting to the refrigerator section.
A couple of weeks ago, this problem happened after the freezer had started icing up. The freezer was defrosted (although it's supposed to be frost-free); after that the refrigerator temperature recovered, at least for a week or so. Now the refrigerator is back up to room temperature, even though the freezer is operating normally.
Any ideas about what needs to be
Some fridges only cool the freezer and an evaporator fan motor moves cool air from the freezer to the fridge side. If this fan doesn't spin very freely then it may need to be replaced. You should also pull out the fridge and see where the drain hos ...
I have a 3 year old Amana refrigerator Model ABD2533DE bottom freezer refrigerator. The freezer section is freezing & the refrigerator section is not cool there is also ice building up back panel (freezer section). As per the troubleshooting guide, I programmed it to a "forced defrost cycle". This did in fact fix the problem but only for about 2 weeks. We are now back to the same problem. Do I still need to check the defrost thermostat for continuity or is the electronic control board bad.
