Question about Heating & Cooling

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..)!

Liebherr ice maker not making ice. Switched on but nothing happening


Hello Irene Booth,
There are several things you can do to check the suitability of your freezer settings ... (eg: if you put a small container of water in the freezer...
Is it mostly frozen in about 45 minutes??

Things that would aid in trouble shooting...

Liebherr nomenclature: model number...???
New... or new to you?

Had previously worked... Never worked.

General observations... Frost forming in back of freezer area
Doors square and fitting properly...
Gasket in full contact (visibly) all the way around the freezer door/drawer... and is in good condition
- (can physically check by pulling a dollar around the gasket).

If the Ice Maker has EVER worked ... We can skip the basics of checking the water supply is hooked up and TURNED ON.

If you can fit your fingers in the ice tray to feel for water or ice in
the tray ... that would also be helpful.

Finally... for new models... check that all packing tape & materials around the ice-maker have been remove.

Although your model appears to be a TWIST TRAY type of ice-maker... there is still a sweep or fill bar that is supposed to check the fill level of your ice bin.

A single chip of ice can hold that from moving freely... your ice maker will not work ... !!

Hope this helps

Door seal no longer efficient. Can you help


Get some scotch tape and inbetween uses wrap a load of the stuff round and round the fridge, That should keep the door closed. For ease of use keep a stanley knife nearby so you can get at your food etc

Alarm is going off (beeping) - ice accumulating on rear freezer wall.


hi check the doors seals if it closed perfectly and do not open the fridge or freezer door for long time because if you forgot one of the doors open it will make this problem and do not put hot or warm food inside most important to be sure that the seals stuck good when you close the fridge doors.

We have the Kenmore model #795.78309.800 and the freezer drawer track keeps freezing up and make it almost impossible to open the freezer. This just started the other day.


the most common problem is a bad sealing door ,when the door is closed it is not supposed to let warm air in and cold air out ,but if the seal is faulty then the opposite happens and this causes the build up of ice,take a good look at the door seal a good way of finding out if this is the problem is to run your fingers around the seal when the door is closed for a while if faulty you will find a warm spot where the cold and warm mix causing a warm spot.adrian,,,,,,,,,,

Stop cooling every 5 days I defrost manual GSS201ETCBB


Does the freezer / fridge door close good? Check the hinges. Also check the seal and the amount of food stuff you may have close to the door. If you have an ice maker make sure you have it secured inside the freezer section.

It sounds like something is keeping the freezer door open or from closing good.

Our N369B fridge freezer has a large amount of ice clinging to the upper back of the fridge how do we stop this happening?


Your freezer door is not closing properly. if it is not on wheels then make sure the bottom nut that also holds the front wheels or slider in place is tight. Also maybe have the seals replaced and check door alignment on both doors. You will of course have to defrost the freezer.

Ice keeps accumulating in back of fridge. We've tried cleaning drain but it doesn't seem to help.


If the drain is clean and there is sufficient space for air to flow around the food, the only thing left is to replace the door seal. It is allowing moisture to enter the freezer. The fan inside the freezer, actually burns the frost off of the food. If the seals are bad, it can never catch up.

The freezer compartment on my fridge keeps icing up over a couple of months. How can i prevent this please.


if the freezer has air and the rear freezer wall has frost on it, the evaporator coils are iced up and need defrosting. causes:
1. low refrigerant
2. no fan
3. too much humid air in fridge/freezer due to door open or bad door seals
4. the condensate drain tube is clogged

if the seal around the door is ripped or not completely sealing, or there is condensation at the bottom or the walls of the fridge, replace the seal(s).

no air, no fan. Replace

if the refrigerant is low, it just needs a top off. but you need to be certified by the epa to move refrigerant, so get a professional.

defrost solutions:
unplug the fridge. remove the wall of the freezer that is frosted/icing up. use a hair dryer to melt the ice. do not get too close. you will see a drain under the evaporator coil. make sure it is not blocked. the water should run freely to a condensate pan under the fridge that evaporates the condensation with the hot line from the compressor. once the coil is free of ice, frost, and water, replace the panel and repair any of the problems that caused the icing up. plug the fridge in and turn it on. If it frosts up within a week, there is still an issue that not been taken care of.

I had this problem and it was due to a poor door seal. Check around the area where the ice is forming to see if there is air leaking from the freezer.
