Re: My bottom drawer won't open?

Can you supply more info? Was there food in there that could have frozen in a position to lock up the door slides?

Kenmore freezer drawer frozen shut

use your wife's electric handheld hair dryer as close to the rails as you can once slightly open you can use table salt/ice melt to free the drawer or; turn up your house thermostat to about 80 degrees for the day while you are at work; the drawer should be free by the time you get home.

What would cause my freezer to frost up with ice on the top. it is a bottom freezer,, pull out drawer and we have only had it for a little over a year.. it is a Kenmore "elite". model no. 596 7626*

If it is very humid in your area and the freezer is opened and closed often it can cause ice to build up. Try to minimize opening the freezer for 24 hours and see if the automatic defrost will eliminate some (or all) of the buildup.

Layer of water on bottom of freezer,causing problem opening bottom drawer, having to use hair dryer to thaw.

If it is a frostless your drain tube is plugged. The water cannot go through the whole to the drip pan so it flows over into the freezer. Unplug the freezer and leave the door open all day to thaw. Or take the back wall out of the freezer and unthaw the drain tube with hot water and a hair dryer.

Freezer malfunction

unfortunetly it sounds like your freezer has lost refrigerant. as the refrigerant level drops so does the capasity of the freezer. the unit is not worth repair. unless it is a comercial unit .In that case you will nead to phone a local repairman.

Bottom drawer hard to close

Check the drawer slides on each side for cracks or a screw that has come loose. The drawer should slide in a groove on each side firmly. Hope this helps. JT
