Fridge Warm, Freezer Cold? Are you looking for a fridge repair specialist? This is a common Fridge problem. Why is this happening? The Doctor knows!

Fridge Not Defrosting

If the fridge does not defrost, there will be an ice build-up in your freezer. In addition, in the bottom of a freezer, ice accumulates around the coils because the airflow is blocked from moving up into the fridge.

Fridge Warm, Freezer Frosting

On a top-mount freezer, when the fridge cycle doesn’t perform a proper defrost, there are many factors to consider. Does the fridge have a thermostat issue, a freezer fan malfunction, or is the heating element not working? It could also be a broken control board or a defrost timer issue. As a result, the fridge will not defrost. Without running the defrost cycle, the fridge is unable to melt the ice built up around the coils by itself. It needs the attention of a professional to determine what causes. We need to see which part of the fridge is faulty that is making the ice build-up. Regardless of a top-mount freezer, or a bottom mount freezer.

Did someone leave the fridge door open?

Do you see ice build-up in your fridge or freezer? Be sure to keep the doors closed to keep the fridge working properly. If a fridge door was accidentally left open, you will not a professional. However, if the ice build-up continues even after keeping the door shut closed, then be sure to call Doctor Appliance. Take advantage of Free Same Day Appliance Repair Service.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is my fridge warm but the freezer cold?

Generally speaking, most refrigerators work in the way that the freezer is the main compartment that gets cold and the evaporator fan motor circulates the air down or up to the fridge compartment.

If that fan motor is faulty or in case the freezer is failing to defrost the fridge compartment will start warming up. If you notice ice build up on the back wall of your freezer or perhaps you don’t hear the fan working anymore, don’t wait any longer and call Doctor Appliance Ottawa at 613-606-6038.
