Excessive frosting building up quickly around the lid on my 5 year old Norfrost Aura top-opening frezeer. I do not know the capacity, but the outside dimensions are 54x54x84mm. The control is set at 60% towards max. No other specs, re model number, etc. visible.

I have a GE TFX22KRDAA side by side refrigerator. No matter what setting I have the refrigerator side on, the temp stays around 28 degrees. What is wrong? Thanks

Your refrigerator is getting up in age but I will give you a few things to check. 1st you could have a bad temp control that is actually stuck or out of calibration. All you can do in this case is replace the control.
2nd, this will sound a little strange but I'll try to explain. If you develop a problem with the defrost system, the frz section starts to build up excessive frost. The frost causes loss of air flow to the fresh food side which at first causes the refrigerator to run excessively and you get too cold fresh food temp at first. As the defrost problem continues and more frost builds, eventually the FF temp will start to go the other direction and get too warm.
3rd and the worst case, is that your main cooling motor(compressor) is getting worn out from age. It is a pump that has to circulate the freon. When they get old, its called low capacity and it runs all the time again causing too cold temps at first before going the other direction temp wise. Also check things like the coils under the fridg for dirt build up. You can clean them somewhat from the front under the doors with the crevis tool of a sweeper. With older refrigerators they need all the help you can give them.

start with a spirit level and ensure the freezer is level all round (with the lid up.)if the feet are not adjustable, use spacers,then close the lid and if you have to,use a hot wet cloth to mould the seals to fit correctle(flat to frame) check with a thin piece of paper to ensure no air this before you try to adjust the hinges,

Ice build up around fan in frezeer.makes looud noise....if not melted the refridgrator part a bottom of unit stops cooling.....if melted fan runs smthly....things cool well, but happens again over noght...

The defrost circuit has failed. Typical failures are the defrost heater has opened, the defrost timer if equiped, is not advancing or the defrost thermostat is open. To check the heater, melt the ice, and use a meter to check if the heating elements are open, if they are, then you will need to replace the heating element.

My self-defrost freezer (18.5 cu ft, 11 year old, refrig on bottom/freezer on top) has begun to frost up primarily around the door (inside). I have insured that nothing is close to the door to avoid the...

Test the gasket by closing the door on a dollar bill. If you can pull the dollar out easily then the gasket is not sealing. If the gasket is OK then the auto defrost function may be not operating. High humidity and opening the door frequently can also cause some frost build-up.

Frost buildup on area where ice comes out of the ice bin with frost also on the inside of door chute

The flap door where ice is dispensed is warped letting warm air into the freezer causing the frost build up. You must replace the flapper - a $5 - $7 part but not too difficult to replace. I find the flapper last only about 2 years and frost problem reappears. Forget about a "weak heater".

Frost inside freezer door

there is a small electric heater along the door gasket where you see the frost building up, this heater has apparently stopped working. this will also cause the door to pop open due to a poor seal. feel around where the door gasket contacts the refrigerator and it should feel a little warm. if not then a service company can replace those heaters. should not be too expensive.

yeah , the coil patern of most chest freezers run the evaperaton loop around the top of the freezer down about 6 to 8 inches to start the frost patern, knowing that cold air falls it then works down and cools the rest of the freezer and its contents hope this fixed your problem

New Refrigerator Past Warantee Not staying cold

is the fan in the freezer running? if not then the air cant circulate and nothing will cool properly. if is running, is there frost build up on the inside back wall of the freezer? if so you have a defrost problem. if no frost on the back and the fan is running, remove the back panel inside the freezer and make sure all of the silver coils have light frost on them. if only part of them are frosted get out your manual and look at the warranty section. then seal system may have a 5 year warranty. if it does then call sear for warranty service. if the coils only have partial frost and its not under a 5 year warranty buy a new frig. because repair will cost more than its worth
