Does the fan in the back of the freezer compartment still run okay? If it does not then the freezer will continue to get colder and colder. On most newer models an automatic defroster handles things. A bad cycle switch motor can cause it to freeze up too which runs the defroster. It is a simple matter of seeing what is working one by one at a time first.

Freezer ices up so much that top part does not get cold. We have to take backing off and let the ice melt- gettiing mores often-now about every 2 weeks. Does it need new rubber gasket? Can the door gaskets be replaced easily, or do we need a repair person?

I have a jenn air fridge jc2228pehb
I have had expense and problems and the repair man told me that I need a new motherboard that tells the fridge to defrost. The freezer is getting frosty in about 1-2 weeks and fridge then is not cold enough.
When I do a manual defrost I (turn off and let stand, most inconvenient), it is then often too cold in vegetable draws and freezes the produce. Even on coolest setting.
The technician who I am no longer using told me it would be 500 dollars
That would be the first $500.00 defrost control board I have ever heard of in my life! Look if you want to do this yourself I will give you step by step directions. Click Here=> ...

I have an LG LFX25970ST refrigerator (less than 3 years old). The rubber gaskets at the top of both fridge doors have ripped, making it difficult to close the doors properly. I will order a new gasket for each door. However I do not see how to take off the existing gaskets. How do I do this? How do I install the new one? Thanks!

Have Kenmore Elite bottom freezer 596 73509200 and it has started defrosting every so often (like once every 8 hours. The refrigerator works fine, blows cold air and makes ice and then all of a sudden the ice thaws and the fridge is blowing not so cold air. I had a friend come over and he blew out the lines, removed the freon and put new freon in and it worked for about 8 hours and then did the same thing over again. He also istalled a new filter, etc. He is an air conditioning man so I thin

Need some advice. Have a 7-8 yr old GE Profile side by side. This past week have noticed that refrig. side has not been as cold as it used to, also the freezer side is not freezing new food put in and previous frozen food is thawing. Not making ice either. Had a repairman come by yesterday to work on it. First said the bi-metal thermostat needed replaced, the heater element is about to go out and needs changed, and the evaporator was froze up on bottom and top but not middle. So I unplugged it

I have a Kenmore freezer that is probably 50 years old. Of course it works great, except that I have to defrost more and more often. It is obvious the gasket doesn't seal correctly along the top edge, because ice forms quickly and heavily at the top.
Kenmore doens't even recognize the model #, and will not offer any gasket that might fit without a model and part #. I have thought about just ordering a new gasket for a current 16 cu ft model and making it fit if I have to. Have also thought

4 yr old kenmore frig/freezer (on top) gasket doesn't stay sealed, allowing air to get into freezer and crystals to form on food and walls of freezer. when frig door closes, the air ''puffs up'' into the freezer gasket and causes it to slightly separate from the freezer, allowing air in. Do I need a new gasket? ...or to adjust the doors? or what??

I WAS ON YESTERDAY WITH THE SAME APPLIANCE A JENN AIR REFRIGERATOR JCD2389GEB. I NEED TO START AT THE BEGINNING.
EVERY COUPLE OF WEEKS MY REFRIGERATOR ON TH ICE BOX SIDE WOULD GET WARM THE FREEZER WAS COLD AND ICE WOULD BUILD UP ON THE COILS, SO I WOULD DEFROST IT WITH MY HAIR DRYER. THAT WOULD LAST ABOUT THREE WEEKS. OUR FRIEND WHO DOES SOME WORK ON A/C AND APPLIANCES SAID IT WAS LOW ON FREON SO HE ADDED IT LAST WEEK. EVER SINCE THEN OUR ICE MAKER HAS NOT MADE ICE, THERE IS KNOW WATER. HE SAID
What you started out with was a defrost issue,adding freon made your problem worse,pressure on the low side when fully charged should be around 0 to 3 lbs. the most common problem with theses units is the adaptive defrost control sits in t ...

We have a Samsung SRL550DW Fridge/Freezer. The fridge compartment keeps frosting up over the period of a week and the temparature rises from 2C to 8C.
Each time we need to take off the rear cover and defrost it with a hairdryer.
We had a technician out who got it working (as it had an error code which we couldn't clear). He said we needed a new Door Switch but we don't think this is the problem as the fridge alarm does not come on.
Does anyone have any ideas on what the problem is?

PSS26PSWA refrigerator problem with freezer warming & ice melting, dripping onto contents of freezer. Repairman called GE for solution. GE told him he would need a "part" (a small piece of foam) to take care of the problem. We waited on the piece of foam for 4 weeks. Now, a week or so after the new "part" has been installed by the repairman, the problem is showing up again today with the freezer temp up to 16 degrees, so far, causing the ice to melt. Could you tell me how to replace the defro

Our Amana was bought in 1994. It's a bottom door freezer and has been working fine until gasket was replaced (or at least, we think so). We hadn't really kept track of the temperature until we noticed that the door was not closing as tight as it should be after the gaskets were replaced. The temperatures went up to about 44. Freezer temp went up to 10. If we turn dials up to 7, temperature goes down to about 39 and in the freezer, 10 below. We were told we would need a new refrigerator afte

Our Kenmore Elite Side by Side refrigerator stopped cooling. I replaced the start relay device like suggested (it rattled). I put on the new one (no rattle) and the compressor still would not start. Just the clicking noise occasionly like before. If the compressor is locked up can I hit it with a rubber mallett to unstick it and order a new relay. Or should I just give up? If I need to replace the compressor that is more than I am willing to shell out. The fridge is only 7 years old.
On occasion your compressor windings can be damaged from the starting components going bad. Or like you said the comp is locked up which in turn damaged the starting components from them continually trying to start the compressor. Either way it sound ...
