I have the fridge listed in the title of this thread. It's ten years old. This morning we awoke to strange clicking noises from the freezer. I figured it was the evaporator fan but - ha! - try to find it.
In any case the freezer was full of water in its solid state. Well, not full but a lot of clumps of extremely slow moving H2O molecules. I sped up the molecules and wiped them out with a towel.
I have the drawings for this online. After much staring at the problem I figured out how to get at the evaporator tray. It was full of non-moving H20 molecules, too.
I have no idea where all the H20 came from. The H2O molecule slower downer (ice maker) was frozen into place. I had to use really fast moving H20 molecules (hot water) to get the ice maker out.
Now I have the evaporator cleaned out and it's plugged back in. However, it seems the fridge is only getting down to about 45 deg F set at number 6.
I have the freezer set at 1 since I will not be able to put it back together till tomorrow so I am leaving it apart till I get some answers.
What would keep the fridge from cooling? (About three months ago I pulled the bottom apart and cleaned the coils). Is there any way to test the charge without gauges? Would current draw tell me?
I know I am getting some cooling because the fridge temp actually goes down with the door closed.
Where is the defrost timer located?
I am off to a Physics class for now but will check back later.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
