  • R-def error
  • Exit sensor
  • F-sensor

Checking for a Buildup of Ice

To check for ice buildup, you need to remove the power from the fridge and freezer before you continue. Remove all the shelves from the fridge as well so that you can take off the evaporator cover. Check the fan housing and the drain hole for any signs of an ice buildup. The defrost hole should be clear. If you notice a buildup of ice, this is a strong indication of a problem that needs to be handled by a service engineer. Either the evaporator will display an over-frozen condition or a normal condition or will exhibit no buildup of ice at all.
