\015\012If it's running, then there are the following areas to check.
\015\0121. The fan motor in the freezer. You can usually tell by opening the freezer door and listening. It can be accessed by, first removing the ice maker and removing the rear panel in the freezer.
\015\0122. The defrost system. If you see frost building up on the rear panel of the freezer, then one or more components have failed.
\015\0123. The condenser cooling fan motor located at the bottom rear of the machine. Access by removing the the cover. It is located by the compressor.
\015\0124. The compressor. It could be a compresssor problem, or the start components attached to the side of the compressor. Thesecomponents can be removed by unclipping the cover plate that protects them.
\015\012They consist of the overload, the start relay, and on some models a start/run capacitor. Unplug the machine remove the parts. They can be tested with an ohm meter but if your knowledge here is limited, you can take them to an appliance parts house for testing.
\015\012 4A.If everything checks out, then either the compressor has an internal failure, and/or the refrigerant has either leaked out or a restriction in the system has blocked it's proper flow. 4A. can only be dealt with by a trained tech.

My side by side Samsung rs2556bb was not freezing on the top section of the freezer(bottom part was freezing). I removed the interior panel of freezer and saw a thick layer of ice covering the bottom section. I melted the ice with a hair dryer and reinstalled the panel and solved the problem.
1 week later the refrigerator side(right) was not cooling properly. I performed the same procedure as the freezer side and found the same thick layer of ice, so I melted that the same as the freezer sid

I want to know if you can de-ice the freezer without turning the refrigerator section off. There's ice buildup in the freezer, obstructing the door. I want to de-ice it but don't want to turn off the fridge section and ruin the refrigerated food. I've turned the freezer to it's weakest freeze setting & opened the door wide. But the freeze element is keeping it too cold for the ice to melt. There's only one power chord for both sides of the fridge.

Kenmore 106.53632300 auto ice maker not making ice. The ice never falls from ice maker. It freezes, then melts, then freezes again... never dispensing into ice container. The rest of the contents in freezer are frozen - freezer temp does not seem to be the problem.

Problem: Freezer gets warm - ice melts in ice tray and drips down and freezes in big icecle as the system recovers by itself and freezes again. It will then make ice and a day or less later, start to melt and drip then repeat again with no apparent timing cycle. It may make and keep ice for two days and maybe not. Of course the refrig gets correcspondingly warmer at the same time. The temp readings appear false as it may

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.

Amana, bottom freezer, freezer not freezing and then refrigerator not keeping cool.. help Started with the ice maker not making ice, the sound of trying to pull water but never any ice.

The water line to my freezer flows fine. My problem is when making ice the water tube inside the freezer freezes up and eventually blocks water from entering the ice maker. I have cleaned and melted the water tube 5 times now and it works for a day or two then freezes up again and blocks the water from making it to the icemaker. HELP!

We first niticed the freezer and fridge not being cold enough, then it stopped making ice. The freezer would not freeze things but still felt cold. I cleaned the bottom coils. They were not too bad. This fridge is only three years old. Then after reading I noticed a build up of ice around the bottom vent. This has since melted and what remains frozen and continues to freeze is the water line behind the panel right under a fan and next to what looks like t

Hi, I have a several years old -was there when I moved in- Maytag Performa PSD269LEH Refrigerator Syde by Side. As of yesterday, it is not freezing properly : the freezer top compartment temperature went up to 50dF, while the bottom stayed at 15dF , regardless the freezer temp setup. As a consequence, ice melted and water leaked from the dispenser. The fridge compartment is not doing any better : where the top is at 55dF; the bottom is freezing (29dF). There is no outside clicking sound, no ice

I've got a six year old Kenmore side by side 106.56534400 refrigerator. Everything in the freezer melted. Refrigerator compartment is warm. Freezer fan and condenser fan underneath are both running. Condenser coils are fairly clean, brushed and vacuumed. Turned off refrigerator overnight. Restarted. Cooled and made ice for about 6 hours, before starting to melt and get warm again. Evaporator coils are clear with no ice or frost buildup. What seems to be the problem?
Area around freezer door is very hot to the touch. ice maker works, but after awhile the ice will melt. freezer is freezing.
My freezer is building ice and building in the freezer and behind the panel where the fan is. then it will not freeze. sometimes 3 days to make 1 ice tray. The refrigerator is not cooling and there is condensation dripping down. i haven;t seen any water in the drainage cup behind refrig. i have unplugged it overnight cleaned it up and made sure no more ice and it will work so-so for a day or two. i noticed the freezer gasket is cracked in a couple [places. i used silicone to seal the cracks
Sound like you have a defrost problem. The evaporator is behind the panel where the fan is. YOu will need to remove the panel, and test some of the defrosting components. Behind that panel are the heater and bi-metal. ( Bi-metal is also called def ...
Inside the freezer of my General Eletric GSH25JSTA SS, I seem to have a small trickle of water running down the back of the freezer. This trickle of water freezes at the bottom of the freezer. The water seems to melt and leak onto the floor. It's not a huge leak, but it'll get a towel somewhat wet/damp. I turned the freezer off overnight and wiped up the melted water. However, when I turned the freezer back on, the trickle of water started again and froze on the bottom. Any help would be g

Model SJ-3056-BE/GL/GY/SL/WH Sharp Fridge Freezer. Problem possibly related to Defrost Timer or its accessories. The original timer went faulty and was replaced by a suitable one with 1-2-3-4 connection cycle. The cooling in the Freezer compartment went erratic as ice formation in the ice tray takes 5 to 6 hours at a stretch and once formed the ice melts back to water and to ice again in another 6 to 8 hours. Freezing termperatures are not maintained. However there is cooling in the Refrigerator

Whirlpool GD5SHA Freezer Problem: Yesterday, observed that freezer section was not keeping items frozen and the ice maker was not making anymore ice.

I have an Amana side by side frig and the freezer is not keeping ice cream cold. The refrigerator side seems fine. The freezer side is set to 7 but it no longer clicks like it used to when you turn the dial to lower numbers. It was working fine and the freezer kept things very cold and then all of a sudden things started to melt. However, some things in the freezer freeze, while other things like ice cream do not. Any possible solutions? The frig is about 8-9 years old. Thanks, David

Water is pooling in the bottom of the freezer compartment. It then freezes. Over time it builds up enough ice on the freezer floor such that the freezer door won't close. Then the ice melts and runs onto the floor. I can't figure out where the water is coming from that is collecting on the freezer floor.
Home Depot's online Repair Guru suggested that I have a clogged defrost drain. I don't doubt that but I don't know how to get access to that drain so as to try to unclog it.
