GE Monogram ZIS36 Side by Side refrigerator built-in about 15 years old. Defrost problem.
Freezing compartment has ice running down the sides. Both refrigerator and freezer work fine. I have cleared the drain tube of debris and cleaned condenser. Problem persists.
Do I replace:
1. Defrost Control
2. Drain Trough Heater
3. Defrost Heater
4. Defrost Thermostat
It seems as if the Defrost Heater is working fine, otherwise the icicles would not be running down sides of freezer and e
I have a Kenmore Side by side refrigerator freezer. The freezer is running too cold, we defrosted it and cleaned out the drain but within 3 days the drain was iced up again and everything way too frozen. We have it set on the lowest setting. When I call Kenmore, I am told no one in the United States can talk to me and I have to have someone come out and look at it and it will cost $75.00. Can anyone help.

When refrigerator defrosts, water drains down into the bottom section and collects under the crisper drawers. We vacuumend the condenser coils and took off back plate and checked for excessive lint or dust. The drain pan under the refrigerator was dry. We can hear the water running during the defrost cyle but is not draining into the pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. It is draining inside as described above.

I have a subzero 690 and the wall of the refrigerator side is getting frozen. I already defrosted it with a hair dryer and cleaned the coiled plastic hose wher it drains but it is still freezing. Today I vacuumed the condenser which was very dirty should all this help? Or do I need to do something else? Also the water dispenser and light doesn't work. Can I buy the part and replace it myself or do I need an experienced technician?

Inside the refrigerator underneath the vegetable bins we are getting ice build up. We have defrosted twice but the build up reoccurrs. Where exactly is the drain opening? and How do I clean it? How do I check the operation of the heater?

My Refrigerator ER2MHKXPL04 SER # ET1704930 constantly has water in the bottom of the cold section. I believe the defrost drain is plugged. How do I clean this? Could there be another problem?
The fredge space became warm, the freezer was OK.I have found out that the problem is in the clogged drain hole in the bottom of the freezer. After I had defrosted the refrigerator, the cooling of fridge came back to normal. After several weeks situation occured again. Even after compliete defreezing melted water stays in the freezer and nothing gets to the pan of condensed water below. Where the drian hole is situated and how can I get to it for its cleaning up?
Sounds like you are having a defrost problem. If the problem was only with the drain hole, the refrigerator section would still maintain temperature and not get warm. The fact that when you defrosted it, it started working properly, indicates a defro ...
Water is forming on bottom of refrigerator interior. I do not see any water in the drain pan below the refrigerator. There is no drain in this area below the two crisper bins.
There was large amounts of ice in the rear of the freezer. I used a hair dryer to defrost it and removed the excess water.
I do not know if the defrost timer is working correctly or if the drain line is plugged or if the defrost heater in the freezer is working.

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.

Refrigerator frost free refrigerator has more frost in the freezer than normal later the the drain in the freezer freezes. i read about the copper wire hung on the defrost heater and put down the drain. because of the extra frost i see first, i wonder if the defrost heater itself have a problem
It may well be the defrost control. They have a turn slot to advance them if the timer quits. You need a little aptitude to find this and check it. If you think you can do it let me know, and I will walk you through it. ...

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

My maytag side by side model mzd2752gr is leaking water on the floor from the freezer. This model does not have a drain pan. I am sure the drain port in the back of the freezer is not draining, but could it be a problem with the evaporator system that using compressed air to blow through the drain port may cause damage somewhere. One week ago, I replaced the defrost timer and defrost thermostat/heating element due to the freezer freezing up and the refrigerator not cooling. This water leaking pr

My Amana refrigerator is not cooling either on freezer and refrigerator side. The coils below the fridge was very dirty (a lot of dust bunnies). I cleaned them with a vacuum and compressed air. I ran the defrost in the recommended fashion. The defrost cycle is automated and initiated by activating the fridge light 4 times in 8 seconds the defrost heater came on and a visual inspection did not show any frost with the exception of a small amount on what seemed to be a defrost thermostat a the top

My westinghouse RT 169 refrigerator has worked perfectly for 35 years but now the defrost does not work. The water from the back of the deep freeze when it defrosts is not running away and builds up as ice in the drain until I have to take out the back panel in the deep freeze and defrost manually. The drain pipe is clear. Any suggestions?
The defrost drain in our Whirlpool refrigerator, model YET17TKXDW03 freezes up so that water backs up and drains into refrigerator. I have thawed it out several times but the condition persists despite adjusting temperatures and making sure that the drain tube is not blocked.
