I searched goggle for warm refrigerator cold freezer and the first item that appears was for my fridge.  Followed this thread:

http://applianceguru.com/forum1/3166.html

Took out the back compartment and the coils near the bottom were pretty well frosted over.  I did notice what appeared to be two temperature probes laying around.  I think this may have been a reconditioned unit that came with the house when i purchased it a few years back. 

Would be very grateful for any help.  I am somewhat technically astute, but that usually gets me in trouble.


Regards,

 

David Feaster

Sorry for that, wrong URL (hope you found it as funny as I did)

 

Here is the correct link to the thread I was speaking of:

http://applianceguru.com/forum1/3166.html

 

I don't have the model number as I am at work - sorry for not being prepared.  I will reply properly tonight.

The above reflects the coils after I defrosted by unplugging the fridge and running a fan on it for several hours.  There was a considerable amount of ice that was blocking the return air path.  After 1 day it seems to be building up again.

 

 

 

Do you see the two temperature probes, at least I think they are, that are loose in the compartment.  Looks like they should be attached to something.

Check the defrost heater at the very bottom of the evaporator coil. If it looks dark gray and cloudy, it's bad and that's your problem. Should look like this:

When I get home I will disconnect it and look at it.  Am I correct that it is a glass tube incased in an aluminimum heat diffuser?  Will I have to dissasemble it to see the cloudiness?

 

Thanks for the reply by the way.

David

Any idea about the probes that appear to be loosly laying around in the section behind the ice maker?

Don't worry about the probes, tuck them out of the way, you may have to remove the 2 phillips screws that hold the element in place.
