Is this the solution to the refrigerator? Please need and answer. I have been looking for a solution for about 3 months. Plz help
It has given me no problems since the service tech replaced the recalled item. I forget what the part is called but it is that cover which has 2 fans intigrated into it.
There was NO ice in the drain hole. The ductwork iced over before any ice even reached the drain holes. The are two drain holes, one for the bottom freezer and one for the icemaker in the refrigerator compartment.
Rafael, if yours is out of warranty, check for a recall. They will replace it for no charge. If you need to take that cover off yourself, you need to make sure it is completely defrosted underneath and it takes a long time. The service tech damaged the styrofoam parts taking mine apart but it didn't matter because he was planning to replace it anyway.
So here I am again it's 2015 and this problem has reared its ugly head again. The refrigerator evaporator has iced over and the fan was hitting the ice (see pics). It had the freezer evaporator assembly replaced recently because it was leaking and that solved the problem with the cooling situation. That repair cost 600. I know that several things can be causing this. I'm hoping it's mostly that it has been very hot and the refrigerator was overloaded. But I know there must also be a problem with the defrost cycle. I tested the defrost element for continuity but not the bi metal yet or the control board. Any ideas of the most likely cause?
