You can use cooking oil or wd-40 to go around the rubber seal of the door especially near the hinge to make sure it has a tight closure

I have a very noisy fridgidare upright freezer causing snow on contents inside it?


Hi Lisa, thank you for your post! New freezers retain colder temperatures. Especially on hot humid days, moisture entering the freezer (when the door is opened) can form frost inside the appliance and moisture collection inside the unit. Reducing energy use to meet government requirements, defrost heaters have shorter run times. Light loads in the freezer also contribute to the problem.


Here are some tips to keep moisture low in the freezer:




Use your air conditioner to reduce humidity.


Arrange shelving and food items so air circulates.


Don't "overload" or leave the freezer empty. It should be at least half full.


Set the controls as recommended in the use and care guide. Manufacturers may suggest different settings for summer and winter.


Properly seal liquids and high moisture foods stored in the unit.


Open the freezer doors as few times as possible.


Clean condenser coils at least twice a year. Check your use and care manual for specific procedures. You'll save energy, too.


Cover pots and pans and use the range hood fan when cooking to reduce moisture in the kitchen.


Check and maintain door gaskets. A good door seal keeps warm moist air out of the freezer.

These tips will help control frost and moisture in your freezer, but won't always eliminate the problem, especially when humidity is excessive. If you have taken all necessary steps to prevent moisture and humidity, you may need to reach out to a professional for further diagnosis.

Hope this information helps resolve this issue.

Noticed excessive fog in freezer, is this normal?


Hello
Could be a sign that the door seals need to be replaced.Sometimes maybe a door hinge has become loose.
On days where the humidity is high this moisture can get caught in the refridge,causing fog.

Have a look at the door seals also try cleaning the ares where the door seal meets the metal of the refrige.There may be a moisture control setting also on the control panel,if so turn it on.
So to answer you..no its not abnormal to have fog for a short period of time.

Our maytag refridg is freezing the contents. thermostat set to 40 degrees. Any other suggestions to try to fix this?


Does this model have seperate controls for top and bottom? No?
Make sure checking inside the refrigerator compartment, that the air passageways are not blocked by tall or plastic covered objects. They will block air circulation and cause the automatic controls to detect temperature incorrectly. That being said, also check the door to see if it is sealing correctly. A bad seal will cause warm air to be drawn in, excessive ice may form behind the panel in the back from humidity and you may experience the opposite problem, not enough cooling in some areas and excessive in others.
Does the machine also include an ice maker... check that as there may be a sensor near that location, himidity may congeal the ice so as to form a big block - blocking air flow.... all caused by a leaky door seal.

The gasket on the right hand French door is slightly torn, so I bought a replacement gasket. It's arrived, but I have no clue how to replace the gasket.


The gasket is easy to replace. Remove bins and shelves set them aside. Next at the top right hand corner remove the door trim cover pull it straight out and set it aside. Note the tabs on the inside of the trim are fragile. Peel back the gasket at the top forward edge and bottom frward edge and you will locate a hinge. Use a small screw driver to pop these hinges out. Pull out the gasket on that side first and the whole seal comes on out of there. The hinge slides out of the old seal. Just snap yer new back in. Do on door at a time. The trim pieces for each door are different. Snap your door trim back and check for propah opening and closing of door. Then party on!

One of the hinges on the door seal has come off and the door will not close properly. Model #KFCS22EVMS This model has the sealing mechanism on the left door where a small panel slides into the body...


Open the little metal screw on the larger hinge that is between the top and bottom hinges. This will allow to pull the seal all the way out. There is wiring behind that middle hinge so watch not to damage it. Then , you can realign the 3 hinges in their place and replace the screw in its position. It takes a little bit of patience to realign the 3 hinges but it's very doable.

Maytag french door bottom freezer (does NOT have water/ice dispenser on door). There is moisture on the door seal - the movable piece - which ends up dripping on the floor every time you open the door. ...


You have a seal problem around the door or the heat strip inside the frame to prevent this is not working. Or both. So you are sure the model is the MFD2560HES. Let me know if you want me to help you solve this, Sea Breeze

Door doesn't close properly, leaks water


If the door seals are still pliable and intact there are two possible causes.

1/ The upper door hinge on the top of freezer unit has two adjusting screws under a plastic cover/cap which allows the upper hinge to be set forward or back altering/adjusting the spacing of the door seal to the freezer body. Moving the hinge outward at the top will cause the door to seal tighter at the bottom and lessen escaping cold air and condensation to form (water droplets). Adjust carefully so as not to create a weak seal (air gap) along other sealing edges of the door frame.

2/ Many United Refrigeration Commercial Freezers are manual defrosting. Moisture from inside the freezer can condense between the inner molded door panel (door shelves) and the exterior metal door. Usually ice buildup will occur in this space, but when defrosting or during high ambient temps the ice will melt and drip out along the bottom door edge/seal. Screws alomg the door frame (hidden by the door seal) hold the seal in place and also the inner molded door panel. The inner panel can be removed to replace the seal or to remove the ice buildup.
