Instructlions edesa fridgefreezer


Since you didn\'t say, I do not know who manufactured the refrigerator/freezer of which you write. Nor do I know the model number. Fortunately, leaking freezers leave a wide evidence trail.

If the inside of a freezer door is icing up, that usually means there is an air leak to the outside of the freezer. Warmer, moist air is being sucked into the freezer, right where that moisture is freezing almost instantly, and depositing the ice right where the leak is. So, where you see the ice is pretty much where the air is coming in. That\'s where the gasket is bad.

The part that seals the door is called a gasket. It is a magnetized rubber strip that goes around the entire door, where the door contacts the main box of the freezer. As I said, this gasket is magnetic. Close the door and carefully check the entire perimeter of the door. (that means the whole rubber strip, every inch) Where the ice is on the inside, the gasket will be torn, folded over, or defective in some other way. There can even be tears in the folds of the rubber part of the gasket. Check it all, carefully. It should be readily apparent; kinked, torn, melted, yanked, out of it\'s channel, etc. The idea is to get it properly shaped so it seals to the main box of the freezer.

If you can repair it, do so. High quality silicone caulk can seal small tears in the rubber. If not, go to where you bought it, or call the 800 number and ask about a new gasket. Look for labels and/or plates, inside the door edges, on the back, anywhere. The info is there. Find it. A freezer door will not seal without a properly functioning gasket.

After the door gasket is repaired, set the freezer to maintain a constant temperature of 0\' F maximum. Get a freezer/refrigerator thermometer at K/Wal Mart or similar store and get the temps correct.

The fridge should be 40\'F MAX. 34\'F is much better. The freezer should be 0\'F max. 10\' below 0\' F is even better.

The leaking gasket on your freezer is sucking electricity and costing you money in electric bills. The sooner it\'s repaired, the quicker you will recover the money you spent on the new gasket.

If necessary.

Good luck.

My Neff fridge (K4316X1/GB) door does not close tightly on it's own and so does not seal properly unless I press it home


Try the following:
  1. Make sure there is nothing sticking out the fridge what could keep the door from shutting;
  2. Take a good look at the hinges and perhaps clean them or lubricate them (using Teflon spray);
  3. There is a white rubber strip all around containing the magnet with which the door should seal itself. Clean this rubber strip and the surface of the fridge it lands on;
  4. Make sure the fridge is level.

Freezer door opens on own


Majority of Freezer's are kept shut on closing by the "plastic/rubber seal" on the doors. Check overfilling is not stopping the door from sealing correctly on closing, Check to see if seal is broken.

Water is leaking from the inside of fridge through the bottom rubber seal out onto the floor both freezer and fridge side by side


drain is probably clogged. usually located on back of refrigerator. often black tubing that comes apart. clean out trap and tubing by running under water pressure (bleach will kill mildew if it's really bad).

ICE DOOR SEAL IS LOOSE AND NOT SEALING CAUSING FROST BUILDUP


Hello,

This is the step you will use to repair your ice door seal that is loose.

There are screws under the fold of the freezer door gasket that holds the brace for the gasket in place. Lift the rubber gasket to expose the screw head, one section at a time. Just loosen the screw, and do not take it completely out.

As you loosen the screws, one section at a time, carefully remove the old gasket. At the same time, fit the new gasket into the groove. Make sure your new gasket is lined up properly.

Continue around the freezer door, unloosening the screw, taking out the old gasket and fitting the new one in.

Tighten the screws into place. This may have to be done once the entire gasket is fitted into place.

Check the seal by closing the door. You should have a nice, tight seal.

Good luck.



  • Step 4 Tighten the screws into place. This may have to be done once the entire gasket is fitted into place.

    My referigerator is running coolabout 45 degrees.freezer/wmer sometimes. thefreezer is not gttig real cold. hope you can give a idea of what may be wrong


    You may have a sealing issue with the freezer door. If the rubber gasket around the edge of the freezer door is not sealing properly it will cause the freezer to be warmer. You may not easily notice the seal problem so check it all around the four edges of the freezer. hope this helps :)

    My frigidaire refrigerator is sweating on the inside. what should i do? its a one door model with ice maker and freezer on top. i don't remember the model. 5 years old.


    High humidly could cause condensation or the magnetic seal could be bad.
    A couple of things to try;
    The easiest thing to do first is to clean around the rubber seal very good with mild soap and water and the metal which the magnetic rubber seal contacts to seal the door. If you find a crack or a deformation of the seal it will let condensation it the refrigerator.
    Does the freezer auto defrost or is a lot of ice bult up around the freezer walls? If so manually defrosted the freezer.
    Dripping from the Ice maker water supply?
