Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Freezer is not auto defrost, coils just ice up and the whole unit stops working, until I unplug it and manually defrost it. Then the unit works fine for a few weeks and it starts all over again.

Answers :


This problem occurs because each time the freezer defrosts, the defrost \015\012water is supposed to run down the inside of the freezer case and drain \015\012out through the drainline in the rear of the case - but for whatever \015\012reason, the drainline freezes and the defrost water begins to collect \015\012and freeze in the bottom of the freezer case.

The solution is to first completely empty the freezer (sorry), unplug it \015\012and remove the cover in the back of the freezer case. This is usually a\015\012 full metal sheet with screws securing it to the case. If you find it \015\012in several pieces, it is probably the bottom section you need to remove.

Once you've uncovered the inner workings of your freezer, you need to \015\012locate the rather obvious defrost elements - these will usually be \015\012exposed cooper rods or tubes that heat up during each defrost cycle. \015\012Find the defrost element that is closest to the freezer's drainline, and\015\012 wrap one end of the cooper wire around the defrost rod about 5 or 6 \015\012times - then run it down the inside of the rear of the freezer case, and\015\012 into the drain itself, about 6 or 8 inches or more if possible.

What you have just done is to assure that each time your freezer defrost\015\012 comes on, the drain water will always have a clear and unfrozen path \015\012out. Replace the cover in the back of the freezer case, and put your \015\012food back in. Plug the freezer back in. You should never have a \015\012problem with this again!

If you cannot do this all alone, i advice you get someone who can help you out in other not to complicate issues.

The damn thing works fine except sometimes after defrost (+17C spike over 0.5 hr) the freezer will not cool down low enough, leveling off at around -5C, after 2hrs at this temperature the alarm goes off . After 3.25 hrs & -5C after defrost it starts to cool again and works fine. When it works fine, does not alarm, the defrost spike is the same, but the freezer cools to approx. -15C in two hours. What prevents it from cooling below -5C in the alarm condition?

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
