Ice build up

I have a larder fridge and ice keeps forming on the inside back wall of it, very thick layer of ice actually. Not sure if it could be the door seal as sometimes doesn't shut properly, would this cause ice?

Check that the door is closing properly otherwise the freezer will be working overtime to cool and ice will form. If the door seal is good, it is possible that the thermostat needs to be checked.

Why is ice forming in freezer


Ice layer inside freezer box floor - Defrost drain line clogged.

Frost or ice on freezer box top - Room air leaking into the fridge from door seals.

Frost on the Freezer box back wall means unit is not defrosting properly.

How can i stop my larder fridge from producing lots of ice?


If your fridge is built into the furniture, pull it out by releasing all the retaining screw, clean the condenser and the areas behind your fridge. Dust and fluffs reduce the efficiency of the fridge. Also turn the dial to three, if it is higher, older fridge do not need to be cranked to higher numbers. If no joy call an engineer, the level of refrigerant in your system may need topping up. Will cost you anything from sixty pounds for a qualified engineer to do this.

Water dripping inside KTLA22EMSS01


Your freezer actually cools your fridge. It sounds like you have ice build up in your freezer behind the back panel. You should be able to unscrew the back wall inside your freezer. A hair dryer should help defrost or keep it open for a few and use a screwdriver to remove the build up of ice. The ice has made its way down the vent and when it hits the fridge it is above 32 degrees so it is melting. Hope this helps. I manage rental properties and have had it happen on a few occasions.

Ice on back wall of fridge


The ice forming on the back wall of your sub zero indicates that you have a part failure. I don't recall exactly what the part is but as soon as you mention your symptoms to a sub zero repairman he'll know your problem. It's an easy fix. Everything comes out of the fridge, takes the inside back wall off and replaces the part. Not an inexpensive repair, however the part is guaranteed for 5 years so you may have an opportunity to have it replaced under warranty as I did.

Overflowing drip pan under the fridge


for reallybsq
problem could be door seals not sealing completely and hence excessive ice formed on evaporator and excess water when it melts. however, i have found this problem many times with large larder fridges and really found no cure.

for guest.
towards the bottom of the back wall, there is a gulley with a drain hole in the middle. this drain is blocked. clear it with something flexible and make sure water flows away freely

Integrated fridge freezer growing iceberg..


problem could be one of two things.
insulation breakdown will cause an iceball to form.
if the compressor is failing, then frost line does not reach the thermostat poisition and compressor runs all time and an ice ball will also build up
in either case, not worth repair

I have a larder fridge that seems to collect too much water in the tray at the back, it seems to be temperamental with cooling. It only works part time. How affected are they by not being completely level?...


this water should be evaporated by the motor heat.however, i have found with larger larder fridges of several makes that too much water is formed for it all to go.
worth while checking the door seals as well as if seal is leaking, more ice forms on the evaporator and hence more water
