Hi, With the information you supplied i'm going to assume there is an ice build up at the rear of the freezer
. Your problem is going to be with your defrost system. I will also assume you have the ability to repair this yourself. This is going to be one of three problems with your refridgerator, 1st thing to do is remove shelfs and panel in the bottom or back of the freezer
(depending on what model you have)...you should see ice build up on the evaporator...don't worry get a hair dryer
and melt the ice. Next locate the wires for the heater
...using a multi meter test the heater
for condinuity...if the heater
is bad replace it, If the heater
is good replace the defrost thermostat
..the stat normally is a barrel looking part clipped onto the evaporator pipe. The last possible problem could be the evaporator fan, have you heard the fan running in the past few hours?..if you are not sure pull the panel out to where you can see fan and watch it over an hour to see if it turns. I have included links with pictures

I installed a new seal on my Magic Chef refridgerator. I soaked it in warm water, and hit the creases in it with a heat gun on the low setting. It still has gaps, and is not completely sealing. The motor on the fridge has been running nonstop for days now, and I am worried the motor will give out. Any suggs? This is a CTB1502ARW model-standard fridge on bottom, freezer on top. The freezer is very cold, but cant get the fridge part to get cold. I THINK the seal is the problem. Could

Too warm my whirlpool gold is almost 3 years old. i have a thermometer in the fridge that tells how cold it is. yesterday i noticed it was getting warmer, so i turned the cold dial up from 4 to 5. this morning it was even warmer inside the fridge according to the thermometer, so i turned the cold dial up to 7. i took the bottom black grate off and vacuumed out any lint or dust i could see, but 5 hours later the fridge isn't any cooler. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thank you!
First of all check to see if the compressor is running.\012 If it's not running and you have no leakage of refrigerant. it is probably the start relay at fault, or the thermostat control is faulty. Check with a multimeter on ohms and check between co ...

Type L16S refrigerator. I adjusted the freezer temperature lower thinking it was the fridge temperature. 12 hours after realizing that my freezer was melting everything, I turned the freezer temp. dial to the maximum coldness. However, the entire fridge and freezer temperature is completely warming. Very peculiar since both dials have been at their maximums for three days now. How do I get both of them to do their jobs again? please hurry, I'm losing alot of food
Maytag bottom freezer fridge model # MBB2256GEW the fridge part is not cold. The freezer is freezing just fine; the fridge is not cold at all. We noticed this two days ago.

Bought a brand new LG bottom freezer fridge a couple of months ago. I like the refridgerator part to be cold, so we keep the fridge temp on 6 (1-7 are temp choices. 7 being the coldest). We had the freezer part set at 4 - which is the recommened temp. Well everything started frosting up and getting freezer burn. So I turned it down to 2 which makes the temp warmer and things still frost up. New things get frost and burned and old things get more frost. Any suggestions? This was the whole reason

In my side-by-side the freezer is working and the blower was just replaced. But now the bottom of the fridge side is so cold it freezes things including the water that circulates thru it before coming out the water supply on the front door. The middle and the top of the fridge are warm. No air is coming out of the top vents in the fridge, where the fridge setting control is and no air is coming out of the middle hole that circulates thru the milk holder in the door. Obviously I have way too much

I have an LG LDC2720ST bottom freezer and is too warm. It was repaired from a shorted fan for the fridge air circulation but it still only barely maintains 38'F on max cooling setting. On default (4 of 7- 7 is max cool) the fridge is 43-44'F (measured with special thermometer accurate to 1/10th deg, in a glass of water) and food spoils. The air inside is circulating (blows when I push the door switch) and the freezer is cold, just not the fridge section.

GE Model #:GSS25RGMA WW side by side freezer issues... I am having an issue with the freezer not getting cold enough. The fridge side is very cold! The freezer is cold in the top half, not in the bottom. I turned it down to 3 on the settings (to defrost) and only the middle coils were frosted after 24hrs. Ice maker is not in use, drain is clear, even the pan is dry! The compressor is warm, but it and the fans run continuously... Any ideas???
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.
