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.

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 coul ...

Hello,rn Hello, I have an Amana BB20VPSE/P1321302W E fridge with the freezer on the bottom. The freezer still works but the fridge is not staying cool. I took off the cover in the freezer and the evaporator fan was not coming on. I replaced it and it still does not come on. Any suggestions on what to check next. I did find the defrost timer on my unit and turned it until it clicked and the motor went off. The unit did not defrost. Could this be a problem with the thermostat? I do have a volt m

My refridgerator/ freezer is not staying cool. I took the back freezer panel off, the fan is turning but the coils are frosted over, not iced but frosted. I poured hot water over them to clear it off and unplugged the unit over night. When I plugged it back in , it worked for only 24 hrs, then the same problem. I suspect it may be the defrost timer or something in the defrost system. Is there any other thing I should look at before throwing in the towel and calling a repair man ?
Hi,\015\012\015\012This problem I see is that in 24 hour period the unit could frost up,but not enough to slow or stop air flow the refrigerator section. How about check you door switches to each side. I sounds like a light problem more then a ...

Kitchenaid Superba Side by Side Fridge: a lot of water is leaking from the freezer side; we can't seem to locate the problem; our ice maker/water dispenser is not plugged it (we don't use it)... what else could be the problem (we were told to check the compressor, and coils, but we don't know where they are exactly).

HI. There are two causes here, in this situation. The most common will be a faulty defrost timer, or adaptive defrost control board. The defrost mechanism will vary form unit to unit. Most newer units will be equipped with an defrost control board. T ...

Fridge is warm, Freezer is cold
Some frost in the freezer, none in the fridge
Air is blowing constantly in freezer, a little air in fridge (but not cold)
Cooler air blows in fridge when freezer door is open.

I turned the defrost timer (?) until I heard a click - located under the front of

How can I fix this problem?

I have an Amana Refrigerator Model Number SXD25S2E. The fan inside the freezer will run until the defrost mode comes on. Once it clicks to come back on the fan doesnt turn. I recently changed the defrost timer...not the problem.
Freezer defrost is not working. Hear a clicking noise sometimes. Frost plugs up the vent to the refrigerator. Refrigerator temperature becomes too warm. Do I need to replace the defrost timer or is it something else?

Not Defrosting Fridge side was not cooling. Replaced Temperature Controller, but, did not solve problem. Realized the freezer may not have been defrosting properly. Tested the Defrost Timer per the solution offered here and susequently replaced it. Now the freezer is not defrosting at all. Is there a set-up for the Defrost Timer that I am missing or is this problem deeper down the line?
There are two more items that needs to be tested...\015\012\015\012one the defrost heater itself and the second one is the bi-metal which cuts off the heater in case there is no ice to heat.\015\012\015\012tnx 4 using fixya, ...

I have an Amana bottom freezer refrigerator model BQ20RBL that builds up ice on the back wall of the freezer. There is no cold air entering the refrigerator upper box unless I also open the freezer door. The defrost timer (behind the front grill) does turn, and I have checked the contacts: OK. I have manually turned the defrost timer switch to 'defrost' but the frost does not go away.
Two weeks ago, when this problem first occurred, I emptied the freezer and refrigerator, and let it thaw. T

GE TBX18SKE REFRIGERATOR IS AROUND 55F AND THE FREEZER IS AROUND 22F. I took the heating tube out and did a continuity test, tested good, visually it looks great. I cannot seem to locate the defrost timer. I put a new thermostat switch, the one that clips on the coils behind the freezer cover. I would just replace the heater and the defrost timer if I could just locate the darn thing, it doesn't seem to be behind the temp controls in the fridge either. Can anyone help?

I have a whirlpool bottom freezer refrigerator that came in house i just bought house was empty 2 years i plugged it in and the lights inside come on but the compressor doesnt run i tried turning the timer under it to see if it was in defrost cycle and it does click but doesnt turn compressor on
Okay, to say I'm an expert in this area is stretching it but I'm going to see if I can help. To the best of my knowledge, this is usually caused by a bad start relay/overload, dirty condenser coils, a bad compressor, control board has failed, lin ...

No there is nothing to reset. It could be one of three things. Let the unit defrost completley. Take the same back pannel off. Check to see if your heater at the bottom is discolored or if you can see thats its broken inside. The next thing it could ...

The freezer is cold, but the fridge wasn't. I took the back panel of the freezer off and there was ice on the evaporator coils. I defrosted the coils to remove the ice, and the fridge got cold.
I understand that the problem may be the defrost timer, or the t'stat. Couldn't it also be the defrost heater (at the evaporator coils?
I did a short test by turning the defrost timer until the compressor shut off and checking for heat at the evaporator coils (I can't see the heater from the access at t
