I have an Amana TC18HW. During the defrost cycle the freezer water doesn't flow properly and accumulates in refrigerator. External drains were checked and they appear to be clear. Rear cover removed on freezer and evaporator coil had minor ice build up. We cleared it (with a hair dryer), but the problem still exists. We also tried different settings on the frig and freezer energy cycle switch, and this didn't appear to help. Any help would be appreciated! thx, june and ed
Hotpoint refrigerator Experiencing a lot of condensation falling from the control panel housing into the refrigerator. It is a Hotpoint CTX16BAZBRWH refrigerator. The refrigerator and freezer appear to be working properly. I checked the door seal and covered it with a light coating of petroleum jelly. It appears to be good. What is causing the condensation that is falling from the control panel housing? Is there a drain problem for the freezer defrost cycle?
We have a top freezer, model number 10679182990. It is draining water along the back of the refrigerator from the freezer section which then runs down into the refrigerator section and collects on bottom of the refrigerator. The ice maker seems to be working fine, the water does not appear to be coming from there. I am wondering if it has something to do with the self defrost cycle?
It could be that the drain in the freezer section is plugged. Remove the back panel from the freezer section and check the drain hole for blockage. When you pull the panel off, check the evap coil for ice build up. If there is just some surface frost ...
Maytag MSD2756GEW went from hollow ice to no ice. Water dispenser works fine, good pressure, new filter, etc., fill line doesn't appear frozen. Replaced water valve to icemaker. When refrigerator plugged back in, icemaker cycled and dumped remaining ice but no hum with water refilling icemaker -- icemaker appears to work fine, other than NOT refilling with water and making ice. :) Also, waited a couple of hours, still no ice. Jumpered ''T'' & ''H'' to force cycle, arm rotated as did dial on fron
I assume the water valve you replaced is the fill valve located within the refigerator.\015\012\015\012If so, I suggest that you check the saddle needle valve on your water supply pipe - (generally in the basement). It may have finally c ...

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 relatively new (3 yrs old) Whirlpool Gold refrigerator (Model GD5RHAXTS01). We unplugged the unit for 3 months while away from the home.

Hello, I have a Samsung Side by Side refrigerator (Model RSH1DTPE). I have a problem with the ice maker. Even though it produces ice cubes, it does not release them in the ice basket. It dumps the ice cubes only when I manually press the test/reset button. I have already defrosted the refrigerator and checked that the ice basket is properly placed in its position (does not effect the movement of the lever) Everything else (temperature, functionality) works perfect. If possible, please provide
Refrigerator MAYTAG MSD2454GRQ:
Ice maker not working properly. Ice cubes are made, but water drips inside the freezing compartment, resulting on icy streaks on the walls. The cubes cannot be dispensed by way of the actuator pad, because the cubes are being crushed when actuator pad is pressed. I decided to defrost the freezing compartment. I turned off the ice maker. After 2 days of defrosting with water dripping from the ice bin, I was able to get the ice bin out. At that point I discovered t

Our jenn-air side by side refrigerator with ice-maker has a problem. Quite often it makes a buzzing sound which seems to be more frequent than is normal. There is water inside the freezer which solidifies into ice on the bottom and on the bottom of the door shelves. Then the refrigerator defrosts and the food melts. Then when you open the door water comes out. After clearing that up the whole cycle starts again. The freezer gets cold again ..... I tried turning off the ice-maker by lifting the w

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?

Freezer appears to be working but not the refrigerator. Can hear the motor working. Have checked that all the vents in the Freezer are clear. There doesn't appear to be a build up of frost in the freezer department. Would it be worth while emptying the freezer and defrosting.
Can you please advise what else I can check.

I have a Frigidair refrigerator model #frs26zrfw3 the freezer coils or evaporator coils keeps icing up and prevents my refrig from cooling properly. I replaced the defrost timer and defrost thermostat and also cleaned condenser coils also all fans work properly
Why does my fridge have problems defrosting properly after defrost timer has been replaced. Ice build in the drain tray does not melt competely and eventually stops distrubution fan from working from the ice buildup. Could there be an insulation defect. Should the refrigeration coil area be completely sealed from the rest of the fridge?

I have a Kenmore refrigerator model 106.51552103. The icemaker is not working. I have checked the optical "ice full" switch and it seems to be working (hold the switch down, red light on steady). I have blown water thru the fill line from the valve so it is clear. It appears that the only thing left is the board in the icemaker. I want to know the best way to take the icemaker out of the freezer. The ice is dumped into the bin in the door so the icemaker is parallel with the front of the refrige

I have a Kenmore side by side refrig (no ice maker) Freezer works fine. The refrigerator side is not cooling. I have cleaned out the vent between the freezer and the refrigerator section by defrosting the entire unit. I have a feeling its not working properly, based on the fact that the venting box is still leaking water. How can I fix the not cooling issue and the leaking water???
Check to make sure the evap fan is running.IF so, then let unit defrost, then turn back on, check for air comming thru top of refrig vent, if air moving ok, then let run for a few days and see if refrig warms again, if so then check for frost b ...

I have a Jenn-Air side by side model JCB2388GR about 1 month ago the freezer coils and fan were iced up and both sides (refrigerator and freezer were not cooling/freezing properly) I defrosted the freezer and everything was fine. I did notice a clicking and buzzing sound coming from the frige side (near the temperature controls) and now it looks like the coils are iced up again on the freezer side which is still working but the frige side is not cooling. I think it may the defrost timer.
