On a lot of fridges the error code relating to not defrosting will remain until it runs its next defrost cycle, then it will clear the error.
This can take a few days to happen.

SOURCE: ice/frost build up inside the freezer

You have a defrost problem. The coils freeze up behind the freezer wall and the air does not flow properly. Replace the heater, defrost timer, and thermostat. get me the model number and i will give you the part numbers so you can order the parts.

Hi Rachel,

Opened 3-10 times per day, per week, per month?

There is only one possible source of these ice crystals -- moisture precipitating from the air (condensate) -- this air is coming from outside the freezer. It's either getting in when the freezer is opened or coming in around the gasket.

You might try a very thin coat of vaseline on the gasket to get a better seal.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

Hi.

F2 indicates that there is a defrost problem. For this reason, if you turn off and defrost the fridge manually, the unit will work for a while after doing defrost.

You said that you replaced temperature sensor. What is called temperature sensor is different from the defrost thermostat, which is one of the parts involved in the fault.

If there is no defrost cycle, or if defrost is insufficient, problem is usually the defrost thermostat. The thermostat is located behind the freezer section rear wall, where the evaporator resides. To access it you need to remove frozen food and undo screws holding the back panel. The thermostat is a metal cylinder shaped object connected to two wires and clipped to the evaporator. The thermostat can be tested using a multimeter set on impedance. If reading impedance at room temp. on the thermostat contacts is infinity (circuit open),then the thermostat must be replaced. In the same way is tested the defrost heater. Check also that evaporator fan is starting.

If parts in the evaporator section are working, then the problem can be the defrost timer, which starts the defrost once every 8 hours.

Here how thermostat looks like. In same page read also the repair instructions from other users.

Regards.

Ginko.

My fridge temprature constantly keeps going up even after turning on the supper.


Something new is blocking the airway from the freezer to the fridge. Check the freezer, look for vents that have been blocked. If it has been blocked too long, ice can build up in passageways in the freezer that are hard to get to. Maybe the fan got jammed, you should hear it when the freezer door is closed. It usually stops when the freezer door is open, but if you push the switch it should run.

My refrigerator does not work but freezer does work


Check to see if there is ice build up in the connection from the freezer to the fridge. The fridge part gets the cold air from the freezer. If area is blocked, cold air is not coming down.
You will have to defrost the fridge to remove the blockage. Place all the contents into another refrigerator. Unplug the fridge and allow it to defrost for 48 hrs. Make sure you have towels to collect the moisture from the freezer.

Fridge not cold - freezer fine


ice buildup will most likely block the air flow.
if so the air will not be able to enter fridge section. Check air vent in fridge side if you can hear the fan and get no air flow then its blocked - common defrost thermostat failure.

to temporarily clear the problem just use a hair dryer on the ice build up area

If the frost is on the back wall of the freezer then you most likely have a defrost problem or a bad evaporator fan motor.
