Westinghouse Refrigerator Model # RT195K

2 posts in this topic

:yikes: Help!!!!!!!!  My "frostfree" fridge is all iced up!! The freezer is full of it, front, back and sides,and this morning, there was a huge block of ice on the ceiling of the fridge section! Also there is water dripping into the fridge.  Of course the icicles hanging in the freezer are attractive, but I want em gone! I've emptied the stupid thing, and carted all my food over next door, and stuffed it into my parent's refrigerator and freezer.  I unplugged it so that all the ice could melt, and I'm going to clean the back and bottom of it. Now the question is.....do I need a new refrigerator or can you help me?

I have no mechanical ability, (female if you haven't guessed yet) My husband isn't able to help much as he is recovering from a massive stroke. We're on a very limited budget right now, so any help at all would be most appreciated!!

After the ice has been removed you will need to see if the heater, or the bi-metal or the defrost timer has failed. Check the heater with an ohm meter and the bi-metal also but it has to be cold to check it, below say around 14 degrees.  If they check good would suspect the defrost timer is not advancing.
