Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Ice is forming on upper coil and around wire harness at fan in back of freezer in Kenmore 596.57587790 refrigerator. Ice also forms in ice maker as if there is leaking water that freezes. I take the back panel off and melt the ice with a heat gun and it all works for a few weeks and freezes again. Seals are fine and temp is set at 4 and cools and freezes fine until it ices up. Thanks Tom

GE TFX20SA back wall of freezer freezing (snow like more than ice) we took the fridge apart about a month ago and blew out and let everything behind the back panel melt as it was frozen solid, it then worked fine for about 3 weeks then started freezing on the back freezer wall again, stuff is not staying as cold also. Fridge is about 10 years old. Is there a way to defrost it? Not the most skilled repair person on my own. thanks

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

I plugged fridge back in after all ice was gone and fridge worked fine for about 10 days till we noticed freezer not freezing that well again. I just pulled back panel inside fridge off again t

Could be a defrost problem. When the coils get froze over it quits coling. Turning it off will temporarily defrost a portion of the coils and it works for awhile. Check behind the freezer wall for frost buildup. If it is, you will have to determine i ... Kenmore 50522 / 50524 Side by Side Refrigerator

At first the refrigerator side was freezing everything and the freezer was fine, except the ice & water quit working. I replaced the filter & it worked for a few days then it was back to the same thing. Now both sides are not as cold, still no ice or water & my icecream is melting. sometimes the fan would make a loud sound, now I don't hear it at all.

I have a Kitchenaid refrigerator that the coil in the back of the freezer will freeze up and not make ice or keep things cold. Had this problem a few years ago,after a power outage and a service tech checked it out saying because we didn't let it defrost all the way that it would cause the defrost control to fail. Anyway I replace the control two weeks ago and the fridge works fine for about 2 or3 days before it start doing this all over again. Can some one give me a hint of what to do to fix

I put some water into it manually and it made the ice dropped it into the bucket but still no water flow. Unplugged fridge for a couple of seconds and checked, no water flow. Unplugged a second time and shut the ice maker off, then plugged back in, turned ice maker on, no water. Water dispenser works, everything else works fine.

Hi, I have a NEFF K3950X6GB American style Fridge/Freezer. Whilst decorating my kitchen a few days ago I moved it away from the wall to gain access to the wall and noticed how dusty the bottom metal grate at the back was (dust and fluff) so I gave it a quick hoover to clean it. After painting the wall I moved it back into place. Since doing so the ice maker compartment will not work.

KitchenAid Refer KSRG25KSS04 ice maker issue. The icemaker does process if you put the water in the tray manually (meaning it freezes the ice and harvests when done). What it does not do is place water back in after harvesting.

By the way, the water dispenser in the door works fine. at the back of the m

Refrigerator seems to just turn off for a day or so every two or three weeks and all the freezer items melt. Kicks back on after some time and works fine for another 2-3 weeks then repeats. Have unplugged and plugged back in multiple times but still have the problem. What could be causing this?

If yours cycles long enough for the freezer items to melt, it should be replaced. ... GE Adora (DSF25KGTBG) Side by Side Refrigerator
