No solution but just a warning. We had this same thing happen. They sent a repairman to replace the control board. Then did it again. Just before Christmas, the WATER started dispensing by itself. Luckily, I was nearby and heard it or the damage would have been extensive from flooding. They are now 'working on' getting a response from Thermador. I feel like this thing is just a homeowners claim waiting to happen.

When I open the refrigerator the freezer pops open


I appreciate your inquiry, Tammy McAninch!

Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire freezer door pops open when you open your refrigerator door. This can happen with new refrigerators because the seal is new. I understand your question is labeled under model FGHB2866PF. It could be issues with your door not aligned properly and hitting your freezer door to open. I would check the gasket to make sure they are creating the proper seal on your freezer in order to check that you can use a dollar bill. Place a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet double check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing it. If nothing is stopping the door from closing then replace the gasket. If you continue to experience issues with your freezer door I would recommend reaching out to a professional for further assistance. I hope this information helps to some degree. -Matt

We have a frigidaire upright (ffu17m7hwd) which formed a lot of ice and we are in the midst of defrosting and don't want to experience this again. Can you assist please? Had to throw food out due to...


Freezer burn to food is caused by air & moisture in contact with it.
There should be a tight seal by the rubber gasket along all the inside edges of the freezer door. This gasket prevents unwanted hot moisture and hot air from entering the freezer compartment and causing ice build up. You can test the integrity of the rubber gasket seal by seeing how the freezer door will pinch a slip of paper in various spots around the freezer door. If the slip of paper pulls out easily, there is not a good seal at that spot. If that's the case (which I believe it is), the door gasket needs to be replaced. By the way, ice will build up over time because you need to access the food in the freezer, hence you will introduce moist air each time you open the freezer door.

Things don't freeze on the top shelf right hand side of the door. Also have small amount of water that drips after freezer is opened. This is a manual defrost freezer 20 cu foot freezer


I would suspect the door seal is not making contact or has some defect in it. And that defect is probably in the top right corner of the door. If you have a thermomiter, wait until the compressor kicks in and then slowly run it around the door seal. There should be some area that is colder than the rest. If I am right, then you will need to replace the seal.

Weird (Pressure Release) Noise After The Door Has Been Closed


The freezer being closed up tight and so cold can create a negative pressure inside. This negative pressure will cause the door to be very hard to open and could pull the door closed too quickly. Most manufactures today use small air valves the open and release as the door is being opened and closed. They are most often found on the bottom of the door itself or sometimes in the cabinet behind the back wall.

The noise is perfectly normal, my wife says it is there to alarm her when I am eating too many ice cream bars.....

Freezer door has a gap in the middle. Seal doesn't


Put a long straight edge on the door to verify a warp. A 4 foot level is good for this test.
If the door is in fact warped. You should pull back on the seal,loosen the screws behind the seal holding the door liner in place,adjust the door to the straight edge and re-tighten the screws.
If the straight edge does not show a warped door,take a hair dryer and heat the seal where it is off the frame. Do this with the door closed and you will see the seal relax and touch the frame. Let it cool in this position before opening the door again.
If neither of these is the cause,loosen the door hinge and re-adjust the door position,then re-tighten the hinge screws.

Door will no vacuum seal closed


Are you sure compressor is running? If it is make sure the evap fan is running. You should be able to hear the fan when you open the door. If ypou do not hear a fan running then fan has gone bad. 4390914 and approx cost is rediculous in my mind but it is approx. 150.00 to 160.00 . Crazy for a fan motor.

I have a kenmore upright freezer model #253.9266411 there is a gap in the upper left side does anyone know how to adjust the door? The seal is fine


I'm assuming you don't want to replace the door seal. Open the freezer door. Stand "inside" the open door and place your foot at the right bottom corner (looking from the inside). Place your hand in the top right corner and pull it very slightly toward you. Do this in small amounts until the gap closes making sure you don't open one at the bottom.

An alternate method is to warm the gapped section of the door seal with a hair dryer to soften the rubber enough to allow the magnet within the rubber to pull the seal gap closed. This has worked for me numerous times by making small adjustments at a time. Good Luck

Chest freezer lid


Vacuum is caused by contraction of air. If your temperatures are being maintained the difference in how easily the lid opens and closes is not a point to worry about. If the lid wont shut after it is opened you do have a problem. If the lid is staying open at one corner try, with the lid open give it a slight twist pulling on the corner that is not closing fully. This action should spring the lid back to its original sealing position.

Door seal


If the door was left open you may have frozen the evaporator (on a frost free). I would suggest defrosting it as soon as possible and make sure the door doesnt get left open again. If it is not frost free it may just be that it is still trying to recover the temp it had lost by an open door. Hope this helps.
