Ok well believe it or not your problem has to do with a little heater... that keeps things free of ice like that, also check any drainage channels aren't blocked up where the excess drains away. it;s either not working, or the thermostat that controls it isn't.

I have a fridgidaire model frs6r5esb side by side refridgerator. the freezer stopped keeping my ice cream frozen and eventually quit making ice. i checked the temp in the freezer and it was way too warm (barely freezing)
i pulled off the back panel of the inside of the freezer and found that the silver coil was frozen solid in a block of ice. i defrosted as much of it as i could and got about 60% of the ice off and started everything back up and it worked great for about 3 days then i saw it

Ice maker works but has been draining water at the same time causing big blocks to form in ice tray. This has been happening for about a year.
Now the refrigerator appears to not be cooling. We've cleaned all the coils and still no luck. The freezer side still has things solidly frozen.

Need some help. have a kenmore model no 53606201 made in 6/02 that is having problems with the refrigerator. The top two shelves barely cool down. We cleaned the coils underneath, front and back (they were covered). The "vent" between the freezer and fridge was solid frozen ice. We thawed that with a hair dryer a couple days ago, but the ice crystals are starting to form. We have a 40 watt bulb in the fridge, looks like its an appliance bulb. I dont think that vent on the left hand side,
Sounds like the freezer fan may not be working properly. This fan must rotate to move cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator.\015\012\015\012This fan is probably behind an access plate in the freezer. You likely could hear it if ...
We have a side by side GE. The freezer freezes solid and then the cool air can not travel up the back side to the frig and the frig get really warm. Can we shut off the freezer and still have the frig work?
We have had the computer panel on the back, the ice maker arm motor and the defroster coil all replaced. I will not put any more money into it.
Could it be that the flap on the front of the door to dispense ice doesn't seal completely?

I have an LG LFC21770 refrigerator and have noticed a build up of ice on the back wall of the freezer section. Yesterday, when I opened it to get some ice - the ice was frozen but had obviously melted because the cubes were stuck together. Now this morning when I got up the fridge is still cold - freezer still cold, but ice is completely melted - yet frozen in a solid block and some of the water has seemed to run down and frozen into the compartment directly under the ice maker. What could the p

We have side by side Kenmore and on freezer side we are getting prozen water under the slide out drawers on the bottom on interior. We have cleaned it out and it refreezes and when we turned off water to ice maker we still found small amount of water frozen on bottom. Took silver cover off and fan is turning and see small drops of water falling off very bottom bar below coils. Looks like bottom half coils show more frosty look but water is still off ice maker. Could water in bottom come fro

BTW, when i checked, the coils looked like a polar bear there was so much dust and
Hi.The defrost system is failing. This allows formation of ice on top of the evaporator coil. The condenser goes under stress and produces insufficient cooling. The problem will typically affect the fridge section more than the freezer co ...
22 cf kenmore side by side not very cold. Large ice block formed behind backplate on upper coils. thick frost on lower coils and on inside back of freezer section. Still making ice and fan blowing, compressor working. Could it be the door was not fully closed and allowed moist air to freeze and insulate the coils or is there another more likely cause?

TFS22PP - GE side by side - running warm. Freezer not freezing and fridge side not cool. I'm not in the freezer too much but noticed the fridge getting a little warmer. Then I noticed some frozens were a bit soft around the edges 2 days after I had filled it (of course). Following some of the other solutions posted, I checked the back freeze wall - frosty. Pulling the back wall panel off - one big block of ice - top to bottom. Cleared it with a hair dryer and figured to drop in a defrost therm (

GE TFX22PRXB, stopped cooling. Cleaned coils underneath, cleared blockage in freezer drain tube. Still would not cool. Removed panel from freezer and found lower set of coils frozen solid. Removed all ice with hair dryer, reassembled and still doesn't cool. Checked freezer this morning and lower coils were starting to freeze again, but only down the tube on the left side and the bottom two loops of the lower coil. What do I need to do?
The freezer seems to go into defrost mode and stays in it. The ice maker does not freeze the cubes as well. Unpluged the unit and cleaned coils and such. Plugged back in and it worked for a day then went into defrost mode and stayed there. The quick ice button does not work as well as it does not turn on the fan in the freezer side. I am thinking it is the mother board as the fan in the back of the unit behind the silver grill/panel works. Is there a diagnostic procedure I can do to make sure it

I have a KitchenAid Superba Model KSRK25ILSS13 side by side refrigerator/freezer. Several weeks ago my power went out for several hours. When the power came back on, my ice maker continued to make ice, and my water dispenser worked perfectly - however, it will not dispense any ice. The red light inside my freezer is binking. Any thoughts? Is there a reset button? I've tried emptying out the ice to make sure there is no solid block obstructing anything as well as cleaned ice from the gears connec

My GE GSH25JFTA BB unit is working for a very long periods uninterrupted. And its building a very thick "wall of ice" on the back panel of the freezer, from bottom up to the lamp. And even so, the refrigerator compartment is warm! The fan is working and blowing. I took of the (ice first) back panel and I found a rock solid ice all around the coil and everything around. So I melt the Ice with a hair blower and re-set the panel. Now is cooling both sides, but still working for a very long p

I've got a problem where i have ice build up along the bottom of the freezer coils. I can also hear, from time to time, a lot of gurgling coming from the centre back.
The original fault, as with all ffs70?s, was the fridge had a pool of water gathering due to the drain pipe frozen solid in the freezer.
I?ve checked the heater and thermal fuse. Both are ok. I left the freezer of overnight to thaw out. This morning i switched the freezer back on, and noticed that the fan does

Nested Problem? When the family told me the water dispenser was not working on my Kenmore 24 side-by-side, I opened the freezer and found the back wall bulging inward. I removed it and found ice clumps on the coils. I disconnected the water line below the door and there was no water flow to that point. Is the water supply line frozen by the great clumps of ice? How do I insure the great clumps of ice do not return? Thanks,Marty
Marty, sounds like the refrigerator is not going in defrost cycle.There could be several factors causing the ice buildup. Symptoms of this are higher freezer and cold food temps If you could look around the door panel for a model number, ...

I have an Amana 26 cu.ft. side by side approx. 3 years old. The refridgerator side was warm so I cleaned the coils and it began to cool down. The compressor began to function and I thought all was well. About three weeks later both freezer and refridg became warm. I removed the food in freezer, took panel off and found a block of ice, everything was frozen. The fan was the only thing running. The compressor had not run for days.

All is not lost. Find the sercie paper work under the frige in the front, on the back, or inside the back by the compressor, it will be folded up in a small bundle. This will show the location of the defrost timer. Advance the timer until it click ...
I have a Jenn-Air side by side frig. The freezer side cools too cold, the frig side not enough. 2 weeks ago I took all the food out of freezer and noticed ice build up on back. I unplugged unit, let it defrost overnight, and vacuumed coils in back. The next morning I plugged it back in and went to work. When I ret'd, the frig temp was 38' and freezer was making ice. I waited 2 days, then put food in again. Today, I noticed temp in frig is 48'. I don't see any ice build up. Suggestions? Mod
If the freezer is staying cold it sounds like a defrost system problem. A bad timer, heater or thermostat can cause frost to build up on the coils and block air flow to the refrig side. Check out ACMEHowTo.com for troubleshooting the defroster proble ...

I have a Samsung side by side model RS267LASH refrigerator. The fan on the refrigerator side was making a weird noise for a few days and suddenly it stopped cooling. The freezer side stays cold.

What can I do to keep this from happening again, and is it covered under waranty? It is just over three years old.

Amana bb20v1ps Compressor and both fans are running on my bottom freezer amana. Fridge is warm, and air flow is weak from the damper.
