White 'dandruff like' flakes blowing from front & back of air con

Our air con is wall mounted split cycle. Even without it being turned on, it is 'leaking' white flaky substance from the back. When turned on, it blows this substance as well.
Hope you can help.
Regards Dale

This stuff is mold and mildew that builds up in the blower and evaporator section of your unit the unit needs to be cleaned out i'm not familar with this particular brand so I cant tell you how to pull it apart but since it is a split system this means the freon lines will most likely have to be pulled loose. you may try removing the covers and vacuming the unit as well as you can and possibly blowing it out with compressed air. aside from that I would recomend alling a qualified service comapny. good luck peyton

I have a frost free refrigerator (MODEL #: FGTD 20V4GW2 and SERIAL #: ba00230071) yet the ice/frost builds up of the door, top and front of the freezer. Also the bottom compartment where the milks,...


if ice is on the door and ceiling and frozen water dropleats on the food packages the door was left open and the air ducts are frozen.when you open the freezer door do you hear the fan blowing,if not it could be bad or iced up,if the ice is on the inside back wall of the freezer you have a defrost problem,get back to me and tell me if the ice or like snow is just on the back wall or if the door was left open ice will be on ceiling ,door and shelves and food packages,also that's not a good model number if the freezer is on top look at the left wall up near the ceiling in the fridge section,you should see a tag there with the model number.

TOP AND BOTTOM NO AIR FLOW UP TO FRIDGE FREEZER IS FINE EVAP FAN IS WORKING DAMPER IS OPEN


all i can think of is the door was left open and the air ducts are frozen,look in the freezer section,do you see any frozen water droplets on the walls.ceiling or on the food packages?mostly happens on bottom mount fridges,the warm air gets blown up the air ducts and along with the cold air the ducts freeze up and no air will blow into the fridge section,you can unplug the machine and blow into the holes in the back wall where the evap fan is,if you start to see water dripping down through the air holes keep melting it out until no more water is dripping,then turn it on and feel inside where the damper is and you should feel cold air,this could take a while depending on how much ice is in the ducts.

if you can hear the fan still blowing but no cold air coming up to fridge section a common problem with bottom mount freezers is the door gets left open and the air ducts freeze up and the air can't blow up to the top.turn the control off in the freezer.remove the top shelf and the door,check to see if there are any screws one on each side of the slide arms,if there are remove them and lift the door up and out,with a hair dryer melt out the ice by blowing the hot air up each side of the back wall,also if the back inside wall of the freezer is covered with ice or like snow then you have a defrost problem but if there's no ice on back wall do what i said and blow the air up the sides of the back wall through the vents until no more water is seen dripping through the vent holes,then turn the freezer back on and check to see if you feel cold air blowing in through the vents in the fridge section,if you feel cold air then you're all set,if not keep blowing the hot air up the sides until it's melted out.let me know what you find,you'll know if the door was left open,ice will be on the ceiling near the light switch and sometimes on the top of the freezer door.
However if fan has quit totally then it will have to be replaced since it is responsible for cooling the upper part of the fridge

Model ET8FTE*V*O* Dampness in the freezer compartment.


the frost free system works by blowing dry air into the cavity, replacing the damp air,some of which has turned to frost on the shiney plastic packaging,when freezing.
it is not unusual, at all, in humid areas it is bad enough to warrant a drip tray.
PLEASE turn off any electric item before sticking your fingers in the holes........

Get your refrigerator repainted before it is too late. It isn't that costly. Cracks may be due to rusting. Ask those mechanics about it when you give it for painting.

Undissolved minerals can appear when ice cubes are added to chilled drinking water. Freezing tap water causes dissolved minerals to solidify and scatter, giving a cloudy appearance. When ice cubes melt, any undissolved minerals settle to the bottom. These mineral compounds in our drinking water are naturally occurring and safe.
Sometimes we see black particles which can be the non-stick surface of the ice mold flaking off.

Kitchenaid bottom drawer freezer is making frost or ice flakes inside. Why?


If frost is front towards door then the seal is not sealing well . Use a hair dryer on portion which is not touching cabinet . Also check for split somewhere on gasket & if found , replace gasket . If frost on the rear wall of freezer , then a defrost problem could be starting in which the fridge section would be warming up . However , bottom freezers are known for their gaskets not to seat properly .

How do I clean coils?


It is very important to clean condenser coils on forced-air refrigerators such as side-by-side and built-in models at least twice a year (if you have a refrigerator with the black coils mounted on the back, these coils don't require semi-annual cleaning). Here's how to do it: 1) Pull the refrigerator away from the wall and unplug it or, if it's a built-in model, turn off its circuit breaker. 2) Remove the cover panel to reveal the coils. On most models, the kick plate or top trim plate simply lifts off. You may have to remove a few screws to remove a back cover. 3) With a long, narrow nozzle on your vacuum, clean out all of the dust and debris (at an appliance parts store, you can also buy a special, long-handled brush that looks somewhat like a bottle brush for this job). 4) Replace the cover, and then plug the electrical cord back in or turn the circuit back on.
