Freezer part doesn't freeze door was part open for hours

Hi !
Our freezer door was a gap open for about 8 hours. The temp display was certainly blinking. We cleaned the thawed stuff out and re-powered the freezer. Since then the freezer part doesn't seem to get colder than 41F. I checked the rear for frozen pipes but it looked ok. I then left the fridge off for an hour and restarted it. No help. Any idea what I could do?

The coil inside of the freezer is probebly still frozen up with ice. Take a shop vac and open the freezer side after shutting the unit off and blow the air from the shop vac into the vents that are on the back side of the freezer until you can feel good air flow out of the very bottom of the freeezer. You can contact me and I will assist you if you need more help.

Ge bottom freezer not freezing


Check to see that the evaporator is not covered with layer of ice. The latter serves as an insulator and prevents freezer temps from going down to about zero degrees. If the defrost heater/timer is defective that will certainly be a cause. Since the freezer air is not cold enough to freeze, then the refrigerator temps are also high. Using a digital thermometer will confirm this.

Leaking door gaskets can also be responsible for higher internal temps

1) Press the "Express Freezing" key and the "Colder" key of the Freezer Temp function at the same time and hold for 3 seconds. The refrigerator will enter Test Mode 1. Test Mode 1 allows diagnostic function of the compressor and freezer fan, stepping damper open, defrosting heater off and display LEDs all on.

2) Touch the "Express Freezing" key and the "Colder" key of the Freezer Temp function at the same time while in Test Mode 1 and hold for 3 seconds. The refrigerator will enter Test Mode 2. Test Mode 2 allows diagnostic operation of the compressor and freezer fan, stepping damper close and defrosting heater off.

3) Press the "Express Freezing" key as well as the "Colder" key of the Freezer Temp function together while in Test Mode 2 and hold for 3 seconds. The refrigerator will go into Test Mode 3. Test Mode 3 allows diagnostic operation on the compressor and freezer fan off, stepping damper close and defrosting heater on.

4) Press the "Express Freezing" key and the "Colder" key of the Freezer Temp function at the same time while in Test Mode 3 and maintain for 3 seconds. The refrigerator will reset to the state prior to entering test mode.

5) Unplug the blog798088-troubleshooting-lg-refrigerator-defrost-cycles.htm&opts=1,3,5Lg refrigerator from the wall outlet, then plug it back in to reset the appliance after coming out of test mode.

Fridge freezer hotpoint fridge wont get cold!! and the freezer is not freezing


Empty the freezer & fridge, turn the unit off, leave the door open for 24 hours, to let all the ice melt off the coils, then turn it back on & make SURE the doors are closed well.... You will know that this was the problem in about 3 hours, when the freezer is back at normal temp.....

Be sure to put some towels in front of the unit, and also inside the freezer when it is off, as you may have more water (melted ice) than the drain pan can handle.....

I have a side by side 2955A bought 07/2009. The filtered water dispenser seems to freeze up more often than it is liquid. I have removed the ice maker from inside the door but that does not seem to help....


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
These are just my thoughts as a 40 year in home technician as to what I would do to resolve your frozen filtered water issue if you had called me.

1. I would measure the freezer temperature. It should be maintained at 0 deg. F or -17 C. If it is lower than that the fresh water tank can freeze.

2. Inspect the freezer door insert for any holes or cracks. Looking in the ice dispense funnel / chute area also for any gaps.

3. If all of the above are good the door insert would have to be removed and inspect for protective insulation in the area of the water tank. Possibly relocating the dispense feed water line deeper in the door i.e further away from the freezer compartment.

The above sounds good but step 3 above is a tedious and time consuming process to get the door line out in order to gain access to the water tank. It is quite easy to damage the liner if your not careful. Addit6ionally the door gasket mounting screws all have to be completely removed and that alone can result in an added expense of a new door gasket should it tear. Lets add the face that the ice chute area can be difficult to get all the components free from the door liner so it can be removed. i.e. Difficult

I really think you most likely may only need to start raising your freezer temps slowly. Make only 1 adjustment per 24 hours. Here is a secret you can use as a gage vs a control panel temp reading. If you have any ice cream, the container should remain firm if you squeeze it hard. Raise the temps one day at a time. Check the ice cream container each day. If you discover the ice cream container is pliable one day then make a colder temp adjustment. ANY adjustment should be minimal. 2 degrees on electronic control panels or about 1/8" for a manual control.

Try the temp adjustment and see what happens.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Everything in the freezer defrosted because i left the freezer door open for about 8 hours how long will it take to refreeze i feel the cold air blowing inside the freezer. its been 4hours already


Hello there:

If every thing has been defrosted it should take about 6 to 8 hrs to fully freeze again now that is also depending on how you have the freezer temp set i would set the temp so that it gets the coldest that it can than after the food has frozen than reset it back to you setting that you had before ok
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards mike

FREEZER ERRATIC. Will work for 6 to 12 hours and


You will have to remove the inside rear freezer panel .The # 4 thermistor is bad . This tells the main control board , the temp of the coils , if they need defrosted , when they are thru defrosting . This thermistor is the 1 " long , torpedo looking piece , clipped on the top left of the coils , with 2 white wires going to it . Part number WR55X10025 . It would be advisable to also replace the # 5 thermistor , located at the bottom of the freezer , slightly in front of the drain , also with 2 white wires going to it , slid into a housing . This thermistor , is the freezer thermistor , which tells the control board , the freezer temp and when to cycle off due to temp setting .
