Fresh food spoilage caused by icing up in that section of the refrigerator would be a concern. I located a similar question that may help while you wait for the expert response.

If the evaporator coils are iced up then that usually indicates a defrost problem. The ice will build up and prevent cold air circulating to the refrigerator section.

A defrost problem can be caused by the control board or the heater itself.

There is an air damper that directs cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator section which also has a heater.

The main control cost about $164 dollars and I'd suggest a technician check and repair this unit. If may be a heater problem or control problem but a meter would be required to determine which is the cause of the problem.

The coil in the refrigeration section has a heater that will allow it to ice up if it fails.

There is also an air damper that can frost over if it's heater fails.

You can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

I hope this gives you an idea of what type of problem you're dealing with. You can reply with any additional details or questions for further assistance.

the evaporater in the fresh food section of this model fridge does noty have a heater element like ive seen ? the evaporater has a metal block attached to it , with wires coming from it. It almost looks like a heat exchanger . This is not one of those glass tube heating elements that GE always uses. Is this the heating element your talking about FRED. The fresh food section break down of parts on this site shows no heater at all at the evaporater in the fresh food section ??? Fred I also think there is a bi metal thermostat in the upper section of the fresh food section too. Correct me if I am wrong. Do you think this bi-metal in the upper section could be causing this ?? I cleared the evaporater of all its ice in the fresh food section bottom then the fridge eventually had its temperature even out in the freshfood section but it only lasted about 2-3 weeks then it started to get covered up with ice again. I sort of feel its the board thats bad but I dont no how to check this metal block to see if its good or bad. or how to check the board other than look for any burnt areas on the board. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

The part you describe is the element. It is an improved design over the older glass tube heaters. You can view the bracket/element at the following link: SearsPartsDirect Element . The element can be checked for resistance if a meter is avaialble. Check across the pink and blue wires. An open circuit would mean a bad element.

A:

Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern about the condensation inside the cabinet. If the condensation is on the walls and food, it will be from outside air entering the cabinet. In this case, check the door to make sure it's closing good and also the gasket, to see if it's making a good seal. If there are any gaps in the gasket, a hair dryer can be used to smooth them out. Just be careful not to get the gasket too hot and melt it.

If this is just water puddling on the floor in the freezer section, it will be from a frozen drain. In this case, you can move the food from the freezer, turn the unit off for 24 hours and leave the door open to allow it time to thaw. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further.

The fridge door is not leaking . The water is developing ONLY on the coldest wall.. the one between fridge and freezer. There is enough water that it eventually collects into large puddles on floor of fridge There DOES NOT appear to be ANY water in the drip pan under the evaporator coil at the bottom of the "air tower" on the back wall where it would normally drip/collect and then run out the drain to to pan under fridge

A:

Doug, when the center divider has this condensation forming, first check the temperature inside the freezer. Place a thermometer between some packages. Air temp is not a good check. If the temperature is getting below -5 degrees, it's possible this type of condensation could occur. Adjust the control to a warmer setting to get it back up to zero degrees and it should resolve the problem. Now, if the temperature is between 0 - 5 degrees, it would indicate a void with the insulation inside the divider. In this case, there is no fix. A technician will be required to verify if this if this is the case. You can call 1-800-469-4663 to schedule a tech to come out.
