Question about Air Conditioners

1 Answer

The freezer on my Liebherr fridge keeps filling too much with ice. The ice grows around the door and seal which makes it impossible to close properly. I inherited the f/freezer so I don't have the instructions for how to defrost. Anyone know?

This sounds like moisture in being sucked in past the door seals. Remember, cold-- sucks temperature, (like a vacuum) and HEAT--- pumps away temperatures..So the warmer temp. are always being drawn in.. Thus, bad door seals, and need to be replaced --- cleanned---or repaired, but for now turn your thermostat or temperature up or the control knob back lower, (like from 7--to 5--ect. ect 4-to 2..)!

I have a 3.3 fridge/freezer-the back wall of the fridge has a buildup of ice ???


Sounds like either: 1) The thermostat is set too low.
2) The defrost control is bad
3) The main drain in the freezer has frozen over not allowing water to drain.

If you ran a ****** on 12 volts, that pulls some power! I have 6-6v batteries in my RV.
They are wired for 12 volts and even they wear down faster than desired with tv's and
pumps,fans etc. The absorption systems are static coiled , meaning no fan required , the cold air falls into the lower compartment unless defrost is required. If it makes ice and ice is dry, you are not bad off as to the system. I would say the load and way its loaded may be blocking air or ice may be doing that as well? it will help to get a thermometer, clean the dust, it never hurts but since you are making ice that isnt an issue here. Is door sealing shut?

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if FREEZER CONTROL is turned WARMER WHICH MAKES THE REF COLDER AND VICE-VERSA. SEE?
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
Make sure back cover is on the fridge. Some take them off and throw them away.
make one out of cardboard if its gone, using the holes of the old one.

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.

I bought a whirlpool fridge freezer last two weeks it was working fine but i noticed that the freezer is making too much ice when i set it at temperature 7 which is melting and i keep seeing water under...


Water under it is fine as long as it is not on the floor. It should be in a pan that came with the unit. You should have 2 temp setting for the unit..1 for the freezer and one for the frid. set the freezer for 5 to start. and then set the frig at 5. and adjust only the fridg side after a few hours. If this does not wrok call the place you bought it from as it may have a bad swthch on the indoor fan or a bad flapper door that allows cold air from the freezer to cool the fridg. But you have to start at mid range and adjust only the fridge side moving it up or down buy 1 number at a tiem.. Let me know know. I hope this helps Jon

Walk in freezer door is frosting up


I would check to make sure there is nothing stopping the door from closing properly and then clean and inpect door seal.You can wash it and the sealing surface good and then put a coating of vaseline petroleum jelly on it. This will help make a better seal.If the seal shows signs of a lot of wear you can use a hair dryer or heat gun to try to make it more pliable.Thank you.

I have a Kelvinator KC1 37A fridge freezer and the freezer section keeps icing up far too much. After defrosting within 3 days it has iced so much that the door won't shut. It only seems to have one dial...


A couple of things can cause this problem.

First - has the one temperature control you mentioned been accidentally changes to a lower temperature? If so, turn it down a notch or two.

Second - Is the door's rubber gasket worn, out of place or needs cleaning and not sealing properly?
If this is the case, it's letting warm air in and causing it to liquefy and for frost/ice in the freezer compartment. Open the Freezer compartment door and carefully inspect the gasket. If it has moved and out of place anywhere on the door frame, put it back in place. Is the door gasket dirty? If so, clean it with mild soap and water. Dry it and close the door.

To check to see if the door gasket is sealing tight, open the door and stick an unfolded dollar bill between the gasket and the freezer compartment opening. Close the door and try to pull the bill out. Do this in several places all around the door. If the bill pulls out easily, then the door gasket needs to be replaced. You can probably replace it yourself, if you can find a supplier for the gasket.

I suggest you try the following link, as they stock a lot of parts for Kelvinator appliances

Hope this helps solve your problem.

The freezer side is very cold but in the refrigerator not much cold.


Check evaporator fan inside the freezer
Check condensor fan underneath in back
Check for ice buildup in the evaporator coils (Defrost Problem.)
Also ice and/or frost on the back wall of freezer (defrost problem)
Check air vent for ice block from freezer to refrigerator inside the fridge.
Should have low air volume to fridge from freezer.

I have a fridge freezer bosch kgn39v00g3.The fredge compartiment doesn't cool as it should.The freezer works fine and it doesn't have ice build up at the back.What is the problem?


Peace Friend,
ngafm At your service!

Ready?
If the freezer is cold and not the fridge, you need to make sure the freezer is not filled to the top and covering the cold air vents and passages usually found in the rear or bottom rear of the freezer!
If they are blocked or covered with packages the unit will not be able to transfer cold air to and from the fridge!
Yes, they share the air in most refrigerators!

What type fridge,model and age?


If not only a trained tech can make the electronic diagnoses.
Like we used to be able to fix my own cars, but not today they need diagnostic equipment!


How old is the washer?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!


You will be fine
Bless You ngafm1

Refrigerator temperature can't be set to cold - sensor light shows 9C and keeps on beeping. Samsung model RB1855SL


I had this exact problem with my 4 yr old Samsung RB1855SL refrigerator. BTW, the temperature display doesn’t display higher than 9C, even when its warmer inside. The fan wasn’t turning on to circulate the cold air, although the cooling coils were still cooling. There was no excess ice build-up. The freezer was working fine.

I thought perhaps the fan was toast or the temperature sensor. Then I noticed the interior fridge light was not turning off when closing the door (but the freezer light was). BINGO—thig light switch was the problem. A small piece on the inside of the fridge side of the switch was broken. When the door was closed, the broken switch didn’t let the fridge know that the door was in fact closed, causing the door alarm to keep beeping. This must shut the fan down in order to save energy when regularly opening the door.

DIY fix: I removed the switch (until I could get a replacement) which is located to the left of the lower door hinge (right hand side). Gently, with a flat nose screw driver, I pried it out.

The light no longer turned on when opening either door but that was a small price to pay compared to the incessant beeping and rotten food. The part can’t be very expensive and I can replace it myself. The local appliance repair shop will order it for me.

No expensive “internal brain” needed to be replaced or an expensive repairman needed to be called. Good luck!
