Your door gasket is letting in air which makes ice or frost to form ,,, the best is to replace the gasket but you may try to level your freezer with it leaning a little to the back to help it **** the door close ,,,

The evaporator that does the cooling and collects the ice is located in an insulated box on top. When the ice melts it goes out that drain line up top into the pan where it is evaporated. Hope this helps and good luck.

Samsung RS263TDBP side by side refrigerator - fan in refrigerator side occasionally shuts off for a few days. Freezer works fine, bottom shelf/crisper drawers cool, but top shelves not cool as no air...

The link above may assist you in diagnosing your problem or you may need a house visit from a certified technician. Such issues are uncommon and would need some detective work. Sorry I am unable to assist you any further.

The air in the freezer is circulated by a fan, there are a number of possibilities
1. Is the internal fan running, this may be switched by the door opening, to test push the small switch on the door frame ( if fitted). If the fan is running go to
2. If the fan is running can you feel air coming out of the bottom of the duct inside at the bottom.
3. If there is no air coming out of the duct the duct is possibly blocked with ice, or the cooling coil at the top is iced up.
4. If there is no air flow then the best and quickest option is to empty the freezer, store your goods elsewhere, switch it off, use a wedge to keep the door partly open and leave off for at least 24 hours. You may find a large pool of water on the floor after this and you will also need to dry out the inside of the cabinet.

Icing of this type is caused by
1. Door not being closed properly, door misaligned or faulty door seals.
2. Putting "hot" product (over 2deg C / 34 deg f) into the freezer.
3. Not covering or sealing product being stored in the freezer.
4. Defrost timing not working (ask your service guy) for this and the rest I'm afraid
5. Defrost heater not working
6. Blocked condensate drain
7. Faulty thermostat, keeps on cooling

Hope this helps

HI,my freezer runs fine,but I noticed where the motor side is,should there be a fan??,I feel no air moving.didn`t try to take off cover an the freezer gets alot of ice at the top sides.thanks

Good day,
Unlike most refrigerators and upright freezers, they don't use a fan motor. The condenser coils are imbedded in the walls of the machine, and need no supplemental cooling.

As to the ice buildup, sounds as if the gasket isn't sealing well enough. You could try cleaning the gasket thoroughly, and check the alignment of the lid to the body.
Appliance parts houses carry a food compatible spray, which may help make the vinyl more pliable.
If that doesn't work well enough, then the only option is replacing the whole gasket.

With the model number, check with the supply house to see if the gasket is a replaceable style.

Will not produce any ice unless i switch it on and off and it will only dump once or twice

Hi, I have worked on many Hoshizaki machines. Is this model air or water cooled? If it is air cooled, check that the back of the condenser is clean for a start. 99% of the time, as this machine is making ice but not dumping it on its own, is if it has not been cleaned in awhile, will cause this problem. You need to pick up a gallon of nickel safe ice machine cleaner to run through the system in the cleaning setting. Also, the plates that the ice forms on before it goes into harvest must also be cleaned and any other water tubes you can remove by hand to run bottle brushes through them. You wouldn't think that this can cause a problem, but it is the main problem we run up against. You will notice a slime build-up on different parts also. This nickel cleaner can be purchased at a a/c refrigeration parts house or a appliance parts house. It is concentrated and you should always have it on hand. Do this, and get back to me to update me on the units operation. Good Luck,

Fridge freezer side by side running constantly but not cooling.

Make it a habit to defrost it every week. You see, when ice forms around the evaporator tubes (which runs around the walls of fridge and freezer), heat exchange reduces (that means heat is no longer absorbed from the things inside the refrigerator) and cooling stops. See whether freezer walls or fridge walls are damaged. Do not use knives or any other sharp tools to remove ice. Do not forcefully remove items that are difficult to take out from the freezer. Defrost and remove them.

Side by side fridge not cooling, not making ice

if it seems like the evaporator is getting cold then your sealed system should appear to be ok. you need the evap fan to transfer cold air into fresh food section. if not turning u need to replace fan motor. make sure your not getting to much frost build up on the evap.
