The damper is stuck in the open position that freezes the top compartment and freezes the water lines and filter on the top shelf and will crack it. Move things down lower and shut off water till you fix.
Thank You to (the Dr's) suggestion that there may be a damper problem. This made me rethink and open the system up and reverse the clockwise motor direction of the universal condenser moter. This corrected the freezing problem that I was having in the refrigerator compartment. A repair man told me my fan had to be in the clockwise rotation when it actually needed to be in the counterclockwise postition.

Refrigerator Freezing I have a Sear's Side by Side Refrigerator 106.50542001 made by Whirlpool. The Refrigerator side has been freezing since replacing the Condenser fan unit with a universal motor. I then replaced the Thermostat control unit. The Refrigerator compartment unit is still freezing. The Freezer section goes below -27 and the Refrigerator section goes to 10 to 18 degrees very quickly. I have to shut the unit off to warm it up. Changing the Temperature settings in any direction

Refrigerator freezes Side by side unit. Refrigerator side freezes. Freezer side seems ok. Damper closes when set to "0" but still about 20 degrees in frig side.
Sounds like might be the Temperature Control Thermostat or some sensor in the circuitry telling the compressor and cooling parts to keep running because it thinks it isn't cold enough. There is probably a circulation fan to blow the cold air through ...
Temperature showing on door indicates freezer is +19 degrees (currently set for 0) . Cannot adjust temperature to recommended + 6 degrees and when it is set there it goes to +25 degrees). Refrigerator section also had temp problem but with frozen food and ice in and under fruit and veg drawers. We cured that with a good cleaning of the back and underneath of Samsung unit but that did not fix freezer. Unit is 3 years old.

The freezer and refrigerator sides not cooling correctly. Both maintain some cooling at the bottom, but warm at the top, 50+ degrees. Refrigerator side at bottom is actually below freezing; freezer is not. Fan motor sounds as if it is running, but have not heard the compressor cycle on and off for some time, and when it does it goes off very quickly.

Doesn't cool ..Viking Side by Side
..unit is about 7 years old
..no former trouble
..quit cooling; will only reach 40-50 degrees in freezer section
..compressor runs continuously along with compressor fan and freezer fan
.. have cleaned condenser coils at top
.. have removed cover from evaporator within freezer
.. no obvious problems
.. hard to escape conclusion that refrigerant charge has been lost
Hi,\015\012 Yes, If the evaporator was not frozen over then I agree with you. The unit has lost its refrigerant charge. The only thing you can do is to have a licensed refrigeration man find the leak, repair it and recharge it or replace the refriger ...

This one has been a problem for the last few weeks and I canâ??t seem to figure it out. I have a 3 year old GE profile Counter depth Stainless Steel Side by Side refrigerator. Itâ??s the nicest fridge Iâ??ve ever bought but the fridge section is too warm. It stays around 60 degree all the time. The freezer seems fine. Normally I would check the timer, and the thermostat, but the freezer is fine and nor frozen at all. This is a Dual Evaporator unit so the freezer is not connected
Hotpoint 14.2 cu ft top freezer refrigerator -- at least once a day, according to repair company, the "heater" comes on in the freezer to defrost unit. At that point the temperature in the freezer slowly goes up from a -10 degrees to a +32 degrees and the bottom refrigerator temperature goes from a +35 degrees up to a +51 degrees. It takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour for both units to return to a safe temperature. Ice cream is "mush", frozer pizza is soft as bread -- is there a fix for t

Have a Kenmore refrigerator about 9 years old. This has freezer on left side, refrigerator on right. This also has an ice/water dispenser. It is making ice, and everything in the freezer appears to be frozen. The refrigerator is a little on the warm side (about 45 degrees according to the thermometer). I have cleaned the coils underneath the refrigerator, cleaned the fan near the compressor, and checked the unit that lets the freezer air into the refigerator side. The unit's "venetian blind" mec

At times the refrigerator and freezer work properly, but most of the time the freezer section is freezing at the bottom and thawing at the top while the refrigerator section is also freezing at the bottom, but items remain unfrozen at the top but are excessively cold.
The refrigerator/freezer seems to run excessively, particularly when the problem is occurring. The ice maker will sometimes make ice, but will most often just drip

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

Defrost Problem I have a problem with the defrost unit. I have a Magic Chef side-by-side unit that was purchased in 1995. Regardless of temperature setting, the back of the side freezer unit will eventually frost up. As frost accumulates on the back wall of the freezer, inside temperatures begin to warm up. When the inside termperature approaches 50 degrees I will turn off the refrigerator and thaw out the frost on the back wall of the freezer. Once everything is thawed I turn the refrigerator b
Make sure a piece of paper can be trapped between the door seal if not the seel is not tight enough. That would explain it taking so long to ice up. Another posibilty is to close to the back or side wall if you have space try to move it out just a li ...

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.

I have a Frigidaire Model FRS26ZNH Side by Side. Refrigerator side not cooling (no air flow from top). Freezer side fine, however back panel and coils are freezing up. If I turn off the freezer side and remove back panel and use a fan to thaw out the coils in back of freezer, unit will run fine for a few days until it freezes up again. Fan motor was running constant, however when I went to unfreeze the coils again today, the fan motor was not running at all. Any suggestions!!

Dometic fridge The refrigerator section seems fine. It maintains a 38-40 degree temp, but the freezer isn't much colder. Ice cube trays will never freeze solid, just skim over. This is on 120 volt. I have just switched it over to propane to see if that helps. We are not moving, but staying in one spot, and the electric side seems to be the problem. Alex, [email protected]
I would look for a ventilation problem. If the fridge is working at that level nothing wrong with electric. The unit needs air to move up and out the top to make the freezer work. It sounds like the air is only moving the wrong way out the lower vent ...

Freezer Freezes (really freezes) but refrigerator barely gets below 50 degrees and the unit runs 24/7.... Very little air flow from vents coming from freezer to refrigerator even though the same? Vent that supplies air to ice maker seems to be blowing just fine. Temp control for freezer seems to be stuck.. temp control for refrigerator doesn't make a difference unless it is turned all the way to off.

I have a Samsung bottom freezer refrigerator. It has two sets of coils inside the unit, one in the freezer and one in refrigerator so there is no air flow between the two areas. I have replaced the front PCB panel which i believe controls both temperatures and all the sensors in the refrigerator but it has not stopped the refrigerator from freezing my food. The problem comes and goes. It primarily starts freezing food after it rains (I have noticed this on several occasions). What could it be? S
Our Smeg SR640XA side by side refrigerator is making strange puffing noises at the bottom section of the freezer. It puffs four or five times and then it sounds like something is dribbling in the back of the freezer for a couple of seconds. Then it goes quiet again for 30 seconds or so and then the puffing/dribbling sounds start again. The lower part of the inside wall of the freezer is warm (but cold at the back of the top sections). The freezer is still very cold inside and all food is fro

The refrigerator section is set @ No. 6 and running below 40 degree F. but sometimes goes up to 50 degree F.. I have done my best to clean the codenser located under the refrigerator.
