Fridge Iced Coils


Whirlpool Model #ED25DQXAN01. The coils iced up and there was frost covering the back freezer panel. The fridge section was not cooling well. I defrosted with hair dryer and after 5 days don't see the frost return. What is the best trouble shooting to solve this?

Has it frozen back up again yet?

Make sure the area where the cold air comes from the freezer is not blocked by milk jug. can of juice, etc..

If it is not blocked, you have other problems. Defrost timer, df heater, timer , fan motor, etc.

It has not frozen up since I defrosted it 2 weeks ago. I think this is strange. I had the same iced coil problem on a Maytag fridge a little while ago and it would keep re-freezing until I replaced the ADC board and that fixed it. The whirlpool doesn't have a part like the ADC board so I thought it maybe there way something blocking. I will keep checking the coils.

I don't have the info at hand to interpret the model number to tell the age. Do you know the age? On the older ones defrost timers and or partsthat make up the defrost system could cause this among other things.

I had a similar problem on an Amana fridge. Turned out that the freeze/thaw cycles were putting pressure on the connector for the defrost heater. Once I had some icing build up and push the connector, it stopped defrosting. Since you haven't had ice return, just check the connectors to the defrost heater that sits on the coils to be sure it's firmly plugged in. The original problem may have just been caused by something blocking the air flow.
