What can be done if pipes in the refrigerator freeze?

More than likely its the defrost timer or the defrost heater. You can try and advance the timer which is usually located at the top of the refrigerator compartment. Its usually a small round circle with a slot in the middle. Take a slotted screwdriver and advance it till you hear it click then stop advancing it. This more than likely is defrost mode. It should kick on the defrost heater. Listen closely if you can hear the heater kicking on and sizzling the ice. If you do advance the timer to run after about 1/2 an hour and repeat the process until the ice is gone. If this works then the timer is defective and needs replaced. If this process doesn't work then the defrost heater is probably defective.

How do you fix the heater and defrost on a Ford Taurus SE?

It depends on what is wrong with it. First make sure there is vacuum going into the cab from the engine compartment. ANSWER If the problem is switching between Defrost and Vent, the problem is most likely a vacuum issue since this function is vacuum controlled. If the issue is lack of heat, most likely the problem is with the heater core or blend door. Check for pictures and diagnostic information...and a blend door fix.

Why is there Fogging windows in 2002 Hyundai accent?

If you are running your heater with the vent in the recirculation selection you start to produce the fogging effect. This is because there is no way for the air to escape from the car. The only way to avoid the fog is to run your heater in the fresh air selection (located above your cup holder). As per the manual the only time that you should run your heater with the recirculation selection is when there is an unpleasant odor outside that you don't want in the car. IF the windshield stays fogged up, then it's possible that the heater core has sprung a leak and the fogging is from antifreeze. which does not evaporate. This heater core is under the dash INSIDE the heater assembly and is usually very difficult to replace. Check for wetness under the carpet below the heater/dash.
