Whirlpool refrigerator not cooling properly.The motor seems to be running. There is the sound of a fan in the freeaer. I cleaned underneath with a vaccuum and my compressor. I was going to take the back out of the freezer to see if the coils were iced up but can't get the rack out. I was going to defrost them with a hair dryer if they were. There is no condensation on the interior walls of the freezer. I live in the tropics and the food is spoiling. Please help. Thanks

My amana side-by-side SQD26V is not keeping cool. Just opened the freezer up and found ice around the coils (back part of freezer). My husband is using a hair dryer to get the ice off the coils.Where do we go from here? If it's a defrosting problem (timer, thermostat,etc) how do we pin point it and fix it?
First off make sure that the drain on under the coil is cleared, then when the ice is gone and you turn the unit back on the coil should first get good and cold before the fan tries to come on . you will have to temporarly put the cover over the co ...

There is water pooling and freezing on the bottom of the freezer section of my frost free unit. It is an LG GR359SQ. I am in the middle of thoroughly defrosting it using a hair dryer. I am not sure this will work. I am following the solution for a blocked water drain in it. I went to take off the inside back panel but after taking out 2 screws I see the side panels appear to be interlocked with the back and I hesitate to go further as I feel a bit over my skills limit.

3 year old kenmore top freezer, won t defrost ''no ice'' buildup behind the freezer panel I removed. no clicks on the defrost test, same result for method #2. The ice maker works ok when freezer is at zero. Naturally with no defrost it goes 5 to 10 below then no ice. The refrigerator runs about 45 deg. instead of its usual 40 deg. The water dispenser has no water, when the no defrost problem started. I tried a hair dryer for the freezer and the back of the freezer compartment. No change, the

Jenn-Aire Refrigerator Model JCD2389GEW
Last spring, it would not defrost and of course the refrigerator was warm.
I replaced the Adaptive Defrost Control (ADC)and that solved the problem. This week, the defrost problem returned. I defrosted the freezer with a hair dryer and reassembled and turned the freezer and slid the freezer and refrigerator controls back to the middle.
The compressor did not turn back on. (It was working before I defrosted.)I pulled the ADC to check for trouble cod

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

Frozen evaporator From what I can tell looking at the wiring diagram this unit initiates defrost with a defrost timer. I can manually initiate defrost by following the instructions on the back of the diagram, but this appears to be the only way to defrost this freezer. If left alone...the evaporator completely freezes up and the defrost tray turns into a solid block of ice. That's when everything in the freezer and fridge begin to melt (go bad). All of the wiring has good connections (checke

When you attempt to adjust the temp via the controls, freezer will not go off until set to zero. I think this may be due to the frost build up.

Ge fRIDGE The board was just replaced due to the defrost timer being messed up and not working at all. And as far as I know that has fixed the defrost problem that was going on. And if the fridge was unpluged for all that and defrosted one would think that nothing would or could still be in those vents. But nothing about this is making any sense to me. The fan stays on and when the door closes on the freezer the air suction in to the freezer is sooo strong it pulls the door pretty hard. Everythi

Water is forming on bottom of refrigerator interior. I do not see any water in the drain pan below the refrigerator. There is no drain in this area below the two crisper bins.
There was large amounts of ice in the rear of the freezer. I used a hair dryer to defrost it and removed the excess water.
I do not know if the defrost timer is working correctly or if the drain line is plugged or if the defrost heater in the freezer is working.

Hi. My fridge stopped running altogether. Nothing is going on either side. No fans are going, inside or outside, compressor isn't hot. Thought might be in 'permanent' defrost mode...(?)

The refrigerator side will not go lower than 45-50 degrees. I can feel the air flow from the freezer in the upper left hand side. When I removed the plastic cover at the top, the right side light bulb went out. After I poked and jingle things looking for the adaptive defrost assembly the light came back on for a minute and then went back out. Is this short part of the adaptive defrost assembly problem or a problem all it's own. The freezer side is fine - no

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
GE Profile PSF26PGS
I have a three year old GE Profile refrigerator (Model PSF26NGTD BB) that is a bit warmer that usual. There is quite a bit of frost in the freezer so I think I have frost free failure. I have two questions (1) Does this model have a defrost timer that I could replace, or does it just have a defrost heater and thermostat? (2) How do I gain access to these components (i.e. through the back of the machine, through the freezer, etc)? I am asking the second question because going through the freez

There is water building up inside of the freezer at the bottom and freezing. Some of it leaked out the front onto the floor. The water hoses are all intact and well connected. The refrigerator fan comes on ok. The freezer is staying cold and making ice. Is it possible that there is some kind of restriction in the defrost line hose. If so where is that line located and could I defrost it with heat (i.e. hair blower)?

The freezing compartment will hover about 20 degrees, although overnight it bacame 14. the fidge box will not register below 60-61 degrees. This began about a week ago. At the time of going awry the freezer needed defrosting badly and it measured 10 degrees and the fridge was already warm. After defrosting it would not go below 20 as described above.

We are having a repeated issue with our GE profile bottom freezer. Model PDS22MIS. The unit seems to go into defrost mode, boosting the temperature in the fridge into the mid-40's and in the freezer into the mid-teens. It did this about a year or so ago, and now it is has done this twice in about 2 months. Reading other posts it seems there is a defrost thermostat or timer or heater that may be the issues. Any thoughts on diagnosing the issue? I wasn't able to find a technical service guid

GE Model# GSSWGPDWW Side-by-Side the freezer is not working. It started about 3 1/2 weeks ago I noticed some frost on the inside wall of the freezer and figured it needed to go into defrost mode. There is no real way to determine if it has an auto defrost mode feature or not by just looking at the manual. So I removed all items from both sides and unplugged the fridge, vacuum cleaned the backside and let it sit for 12 hrs. When I replugged it up again it seemed to be working fine until the probl
