I have side by side refrigerator. It does not want to cool properly. The food will stay frozen as long as it is in the bottom of the freezer. The refrigerator stays semi cool. The fans are running the compressor seems to be running. I did notice that it doesn't look like it is defrosting like it suppose to. The freezer was over packed at one time and I think that had something to do with it. How do I reset the mechanism that will let this defrost again and get it back on it timer

DSS25KSRD SS GE Adora refrigerator- ice in tray melts and refreezes at the bottom of freezer. food defrosts also, seems like maybe defrost may be running too long and heating up the ice storage bin? Have since turned off ice maker hoping to resolve the issue. this morning the meat on top rack was defrosted, however, i have a bag of ice toward bottom wich did not seem to have melted at all.

I assume that the frig went into an apparent defrost mode and all refrigeration ended. There is a humming (solenoid type) in the small box on the side of the compressor on an intermittant basis (sounds like the compressor is working properly when the noise stops but then it starts again in a few minutes) This solenoid sound is a new sound which started yesterday Jul 23 and in the 12-15 hour period all of the frozen foods defrosted. I also noted that the pull out door is leaking a profuse

Model MSD2732GR side by side refrigerator has intermittently stopped cooling for quite some time now. Unfortunately, it is now more frequent- the freezer defrosts and gets warmer spoiling all the food as the fridge side does the same. Wondering if it has something to do with a faulty thermostat, relay, or similar? It acts like it goes in to defrost mode and then has trouble going back on. Any idea which part I should replace?

The repair guys have been twice now to temp fix the freezer, to no avail. the freezer is not freezing or I should say it stops freezing because the vent where the air flows through block with solid ice and when the defrosting cycle starts(warm air is pumped through the freezer) it doesnt stop and all the food defrosts.

My refrigerator totally stopped working. Everything in the freezer defrosted and all of the food on the refrigerator side got warm. As I was cleaning out the unit it suddenly started working again and has worked for about a month. Now it has again suddenly stopped working. The unit has power to it - the light still comes on but I don't know if anything else is working. Is there a schematic that we can look at or do you have suggestions?

I have a GE Model# GSS22WGMA BB refrigerator. The condenser coil was stopped up so i cleaned it. It worked great for 24 hours. Now it will not maintain temperature in the freezer or in the refrigerator even though i have both thermostat settings turned down to the coldest settings(9).

I have a Maytag MTF2455ER refrigerator and its not working right. The freezer has frost on the back wall (blocking bottom vents), from the bottom about half way up, but otherwise works fine. The refrigerator section is at 56 degrees and my food is going bad rapidly. I'd like some help in debugging and repairing this. What I've read so far points to the defrost timer or defrost heater. Do you agree? How do I get at these (or other parts) for testing? Thanks,

Stopped cooling My Whirlpool Refrigerator just all of a sudden stopped cooling and all of our food was ruined. The refrigerator was still running so it was not a breaker that had flipped. I didn't see any ice on coils that needed to be defrosted. What would be my next step?

My 6 yr old Frigidaire FRS23LH5DSR refrigerator has started buzzing. When it does this it appears to go on defrost. But it gets too warm. The refrigerator side isn't too bad but the freezer side gets too warm. All my frozen food thaws out, ice cubes melt. After several hours the buzzing stops and the refrigerator starts working fine again. Freezer freezes fine after that. But, maybe a week later, it starts all over again. Buzzing sound comes from low in the back. Thanks, Roger

My side by side refrigerator has stopped cooling but sounds like it is running. There is frost on the back wall of the freezer and things are defrosting. Right now the freezer is 14 degrees and the refrigerator is 46 degrees. This happened once before and a repair person came out and changed something that seemed to fix the problem, but I am not sure what it was. The refrigerator is only 2 years old.

It may be the thermistor that he replaced. Usually for these cases, have the frost melted away and have it cleaned. It should solve the issue. If it occurs again, it may be the thermistor (again). Also check the air circulation at the back of the ... Refrigerators

Refrigerator intermittently stops cooling. So, we discover we have a refrigerator full of spoiled food. On a hunch (this thing has a computer in it...) when this first happened, we cycled power to the refrigerator via the breaker in the garage. Then the unit started cooling again. Otherwise it maintains temperature just fine. The trouble is that it is intermittent. We thought at first it might be a power "bump" off the mains, but I have a high-end UPSfor my PC and server that monitor
