I posted a problem I had on this forum a little over 2 years ago and you can find it here: http://appliancejunk.com/forums/index.php?topic=10716.msg53404#msg53404.  I was amazed that the post has been read almost 5500 times!  I hope that it was helpful to people.

The frig has been running fine but in the last couple of months it was leaking some water out of the freezer.  I turned off the water to the frig to see if the ice maker was leaking.  It still leaked.  I thought that the drain tube was clear as well but I have not had time to work on it.  I had to take a business trip and my wife called me and said that the frig was starting to freeze up.  It is always when you are away that these things happen.  She said she had turned it all the way down but things were still freezing.  I got home yesterday and started to take a look at it today.  We pulled everything apart in the freezer and found that the drain pipe was clogged so that answered why we were getting water coming out of the freezer.  Cleaned that out so it was flowing properly.

However after taking care of that and putting it all back together and letting it run for an hour the freezer will not get below 50 F in the top of it.  Down at the bottom it gets to 30 F.  I took off the panel covering the coils and it looks like only the bottom coils are frosting up.  I can touch the top ones and they are warm.  see the attached pictures.  I have read that if the coils only partially frost up that the sealed system has a problem and that you should just get a new refrigerator.  I am guessing because the cost of fixing the sealed system is not worth it.  Is that a proper assessment or is there something else I should be looking at?



Thanks for the help.

That's to bad. I would be interested in know what you hear back from the company, if anything at all.

Washer Repair / Re: Whirlpool Cabrio Washer bearing noise during spin

Did you replace the bearings?  Did it work?  We have a Cabrio that is only 4 yrs old and it may have the same issue.  Trying to decide if it's worth fixing, if it will last.  The part for ours is more.

It would appear as though the bearings are out on the washer that is only 4 years old.  They are attached to the plastic tub.  Would you recommend repairing this machine?  Is the part available for this "new and improved" or will the same thing happen again?  Please advise.

Why not just replace the original line with copper?

Hello Forum,
I'm looking for a tech sheet for my Bosch SHX7ER55UC/55 Dishwasher. Would any of you guys happen to have one? If so, can I copy it? I'm in a bad situation with my dishwasher down. Thanks in advance for your help.

Sorry to burst your balloon, but I have to do the pull the back and reinsert the ribbon cables every 6 months or so.  Cleaned, checked, inspected, just a poor design.

I got continuity on the sensor.  I pay pennies on the dollar on the parts for these machines so to cover my but, I vacuumed the fan area. Changed the thermal fuse, the thermostat, the high limit and the cycling thermostat and the coils.
    I hate getting call backs so better safe than sorry.  The sensor was good, she uses timed dry though.  It's probably bad coils, just they read good.  Idk.   Easier to just throw a new thermal kit in.
