GE MODEL GS-L25JFTBS, two years old. upper 2/3 of evap coil not clearing of frost. ice build up occurs over several weeks blocking air flow,causing fridge side to run too warm,also uper freezer compartment, too warm. must defrost with heat gun. defrost heater checks good, limit thermostat to heater is ok. just seems it does not defrost long enough to completely melt the ice, all the way to the top of evap coil. is this a computer issue, or is the upper temp sensor bad?

LG GR 349SQF. The freezer only cools to 4degree c, and fridge to 8c. Even at the top setting. The fan is working well but I notice when I pulled cover off freezer area to inspect that the freezing element only gets cold or ice on it at the top section and the rest of the aluminium element that snakes downward is warm. Could this be low gas or blockadge? Also the fan at rear bottom of fridge is working and all the light buttons etc, all seem to be fine.

My kenmore 106.5706 has good freezer operation but warm refrig side. Fridge bottom vent had ice buildup and there was also no air from the top vent. I unplugged overnight to let ice melt then reconnected. I now have really good airflow through the top vent but none or very little from the bottom. Freezer control varies the amount of air through the top vent. Could someone point me in the right direction to troubleshoot. Thanks in advance

Hotpopint freezer works for a few weeks then ices up (coils) and warms up. This has happened three times and each time I think it okay after I defrost the freezer.

The freezer coil in the lower freezer section freezes up with ice. I have the upper section at 5C and the freezer 18C. We first notice that there is water under the fruit drawers and the fridge seems to be running a lot. This tells me that it is time to take the inside of the freezer apart and apply heat to the coil until it is free of ice. The coil is so full of ice that the freezer has to be heated to remove the outer panels as the ice is holding the panels.

The freezer is cold, but the fridge wasn't. I took the back panel of the freezer off and there was ice on the evaporator coils. I defrosted the coils to remove the ice, and the fridge got cold. I understand that the problem may be the defrost timer, or the t'stat. Couldn't it also be the defrost heater (at the evaporator coils?

I want to know if you can de-ice the freezer without turning the refrigerator section off. There's ice buildup in the freezer, obstructing the door. I want to de-ice it but don't want to turn off the fridge section and ruin the refrigerated food. I've turned the freezer to it's weakest freeze setting & opened the door wide. But the freeze element is keeping it too cold for the ice to melt. There's only one power chord for both sides of the fridge.

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.

The ice maker works but its not cold enough to make ice and the food in the fridge side has spoiled.
