Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Frigidaire plht189sska top freezer fridge problem. Freezer is cold, fridge is warm. About a month ago, had the problem of frost build up in freezer, water pooling under veggie bins, warm fridge. Defrosted for 2 days, cleaned up water, found a clogged drain pipe. Plugged in, worked fine up until now. Warm fridge again, only this time no frost build up, no water leak. What to check next- timer, defrost thermostat, fan, condenser? should I check them in a particular order? Fridge is only 3 1/


Answers :

If the defrost heating element, defrost timer or evaporater fan weren't working, you'd develop a block of ice on the evaporator. Is the compressor running? If it is, it might have bad valves from the frost buildup scenario. Liquid refrigerant could have gotten to the suction valves. The sealed system should have a five year warranty. Might be time to call a pro

Hotpoint FFS70 I've got a problem where i have ice build up along the bottom of the freezer coils. I can also hear, from time to time, a lot of gurgling coming from the centre back. The original fault, as with all ffs70?s, was the fridge had a pool of water gathering due to the drain pipe frozen solid in the freezer. I?ve checked the heater and thermal fuse. Both are ok. I left the freezer of overnight to thaw out. This morning i switched the freezer back on, and noticed that the fan does

Sharp SJ-42-WH self-defrosting fridge. Freezer works fine, but fridge doesn't cool down - no airflow to fridge. 1. Damper working perfectly and not jambed in closed position. 2.

I defrosted my Miele KFN 8462 S frost free fridge freezer today because of an ice build up on the bottom of the freezer and in the drainage hole in the fridge. I (incorrectly) used an air heater on a chair in front of the open freezer door for about an hour, thinking that there was a wall of ice inside which needs melting and I don't have a lot of time. Fast forward 12 hours and all ice seems to have been melted away and water cleared up ... but, none of my freezer shelves (bar the bottom

Have a 17 year old Kelvinator N640T side by side no frost fridge freezer. Runs well except ice builds up on the bottom of the freezer compartment and when it builds up too much some melts spilling water onto the floor of the kitchen. Were advised that it could be the door seals (have now replaced them with new ones)but problem is still there except that the ice does not now build up as quickly as before. Were also advised that it could be the defrost mechanism. Any comments welcomed. Thank


You problem lies in a blocked drain or a broken drain connection to the metal drip tray at the bottom of the freezer heat exchanger. You could try blowing the drain out from beneath the fridge, which is difficult as it is very hard to access. Alterna ... Refrigerators

I have a Kitchen Aid side by side , model # KSRD22FTST03. The fan in the freezer compartment runs all the time and I noticed frost build up on the back panel and in particular in the vent at the bottom of the freezer. Also, the water filter light blinks green all the time. So far the temps are good in both the freezer and fridge boxes. I also started noticing a loud rumbling sound sometimes just before the compressor shuts off. Maybe for 10-15 seconds. Thanks for your help

Whirlpool Fridge (Model ET18LKXHW00) continually freezes up and water drips into the fridge. Ice builds up under the freezer floor tray and then blocks vents. I've cleared it out including the frozen drain plug on occasion with hot water until it flows through the tube in to the bottom drip pan but the problem returns. Is it the heater? Is there a way to check it?

The fridge part of my fridge/freezer was not working properly, i.e. it wasn't cold, and water was forming on the bottom of the fridge. I called out an engineer who said he had now fixed the problem, and I needed to switch off the F/F, de-frost it, and then switch it back on. I did all that, but the next day, the freezer this time failed to work, and my food started to de-frost. When I called the repair company again they told me that I should have switched the F/F off for 24hrs before switching

I've got a Fisher and Paykel fridge freezer (fridge on top. The freezer appears to be fine (although have had problems with build up of ice in the past). However the fridge is too warm- it takes it being closed overnight to get down to the right temperature. I've thoroughly defrosted the freezer. I think it is the fridge fan that isn't circulating the air properly. Does this sound right or any other ideas? I've checked both the fans and they are intact and moving freely and I've checked all obv

This fridge won't dispense water. It did this morning, nothing done all day that could affect fridge or water supply. I'm an engineer and I know a little about tracing problems. I checked the line in at the back and it has pressure. Filter fills with water when I disconnect and re-install filter, so it seems water should be getting to dispenser line. Checked coldness settings. Freezer control is on 4 and fridge on 3 so coldness settings should not cause line to freeze anywhere. Anyone out there

Ice was building up in the lower freezer and water was running down on top of the ice and out of the freezer and on to the floor. I assumed it was a plugged drain not allowing the water to go out and then causing it to refreeze. I cleaned the drain tube, but now, a few days later, I see ice building up again. It is not leaking, but I think in time it will. What else can I check. Is it possible that the freezer is somehow keeping itself too cool and freezing the water (from the defrost cycle) bef

Three days later, the freezer started frosting but the fridge stopped working. A week later, a whirlpool technician came to investigate the problem and he deemed it beyond repairing.
