Hotpoint Future fridge freezer - freezer working well but top of the back of the fridge has a large build up of ice ??? And doesn't appear to be keeping the food cold enough

here are lots of things that can cause cooling problems. One of the most common causes of poor cooling in a frost free refrigerator is a defrost system failure. In such a case one or the other compartment may appear to be keeping proper temperature but that too may change in a short period of time. The fridge compartment's temperature rise is usually (but not always) the first to be noticed. Frost" and "Ice"
There is a difference between "frost" (a white, snow-like substance) and "ice" (usually clear and solid). When referring to what is seen during an inspection, please keep this distinction in mind as the possible causes for each are often very different. The Defrost System
Inspecting the (usually rear) wall of the freezer compartment for a frost build up is necessary. (In the case of many GE top freezer models, check the freezer's bottom panel.) If there is a frost coating on it, it is often a sign of excessive frosting beneath it. Sometimes however the evaporator cover panel will actually need to be removed (see the illustration below) before an excessive frost build will visible.
The refrigeration system's evaporator (cooling) coil is usually in the freezer compartment. This evaporator will periodically frost over and have to be defrosted by means of a heating system. When the defrost heating system fails, the frost can accumulate to such a degree that airflow throughout the appliance is hampered. There may be just enough air circulation to cool the freezer section but that will eventually stop too.

We have got water coming out at the bottom of the freezer of our fridgidair FRC170FF how do i fix it?

1. Your freezer may be not cold enough so water does not freeze.
2. Your freezer may leak so warm air goes into the freezer and keep the temperature higher than freezing temperature.

Ever since we installed a salt system a gel like substance is accumulating at bottom of pool. What could this be?

Could be separation of the saltwater due to lack of circulation. How can you tell it is gel like underneath the water? Can you isolate the substance? Take a water testing tube and hold upside down as you bring it underwater to keep it filled with air until you reach the substance in question.

How mushroom spawn is made

Make your spawn. Place small pieces of mushrooms on an agar medium in petri dishes, keep it moistened and under the proper temperatures for those particular mushrooms; the mycelium (threadlike parts that deliver nutrients) will grow out and fill the dish in about two weeks. Agar medium is a gelatinous substance made from seaweed cells that is commonly used in laboratory work.
  • Transfer the mycelium when it has just filled the petri with long, strands. Don't let the mycelium grow too long in the petri dishes. Transfer the mycelium to the sterilized grain in jars. Allow it to colonize for about two to four weeks under the proper temperature for the particular species of mushroom
  • Observe your jars. When they are filled with healthy, white filaments, you have achieved grain spawn. Mushrooms will grow right out of the jar of grain spawn, or you can use it to inoculate more grain. If you repeat the process, one jar of grain spawn can produce up to ten more.

    Why the sublimation is good than re crystallization?

    crystalisation relies on the partial precipitation of a salt based on the difference in solubility at different temperatures.

    with sublimation however, you can be assured that all the substance will sublime, just like how water boils completely beyond 100oC

    We are trying to use our White Mountain Electric Ice Cream Maker for the first time. We put eveything together but when we turn it on the motor makes a buzzing type sound but we can not tell if the dasher...

    I am intimately familiar with the 6 qt electric model, so let me give it a whirl. Our church uses 5 of these things to make 90 gallons of ice cream for the church ice cream social each summer, so they do hold up.

    Your problem could be several things. The first thing I would do is to take the drive unit by itself and plug it in to the electrical outlet and see if it makes the same noise as when totally assembled. If it does, we'll deal with that in a minute. If it worked okay disconnected, then there's something binding in the dasher or the pivot piece in the bottom of the wood bucket. Once the mix is in the stainless canister and centered on the pivot bump, the dasher spindle that sticks out from the top of the canister lid fits in a certain way and then you must rotate the canister to get the lid to properly seat in the drive unit. Once all that is in place, it should clamp down properly on the bucket.

    If the motor sounds the same as when assembled, then you could check to see if there's any lubricant in the gear housing(yellow metal thing the motor sits on). It's just a couple of screws to remove to take a peek. White mountain will get you a new motor assembly for a $10 shipping fee if you can produce a copy of the original sales receipt. the warranty is good for 5 years. Call 800-343-0065(old number but should stil be good).

    One tip on making ice cream; when you get it going, don't cool the mixture too quickly as it makes the product really icy tasting and sort of "crunchy". If you get really crazy, monitor the temperature of the brine with an infrared temp gun or one of those thermometers with the remote probes. 8-12 degrees Fareinheit is ideal and that can be achieved by using a 5-1 ratio of ice to salt. If the temp gets below that, add some water or more ice. If the temp isn't getting down to 12 degrees, then add more salt. a cup of salt is usually good for about a 5 degree drop. Make sure you use the Morton Rock salt in the red box at the store. Water softener salt and regular table salt will either melt too slowly or too quickly for best results. Also make sure your ice has been at least partially crushed or it won't melt fast enough. Cubes need al ot of crushing, and even the ice from the convenience stor needs a wooden mallet taken to it before using. We had an old Alaskan ahand cranked ice crusher that worked perfectly. It was made back in the ealry 1900's. bought it on ebay for like $30. Our recipe comes out perfect after about 17-20 minutes of churning. the white mountain motor is strong enough that it will keep on spinning the product until it tuns it into butter, so a timer is critical for best results. Great ice crema making info on the web from the Universitry of Guelph in Ontario Canada.

    Good luck
