Question about LG LFX25971ST Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer

Bottom Freezer has ice built up

I have a LG French door freezer with bottom freezer. Every couple of weeks I see the ice build up in the bottom freezer and I cannot shut the freezer door easily. So I take out the built up ice and then repeat the process every 2 weeks. The ice built up is on the base like a thick 1/2 inch sheet of ice.

What could be the problem.?

Possibly the defrost element is faulty, this is located behind a cover in the back of the freezer compartment and is attached to the fins of the evaporator. It also has a defrost limit thermostat which could also be the problem. I presume that the fan is working after you have defrosted the unit?

LG refrigerator Ice build up in the bottom freezer


Check the seal in the freezer, if it is leaking outside moisture can get in as well as cause things to defrost near the leak. Also make sure the contents aren't blocking the door to where the seal is leaking. If this is all OK then perhaps the fan units fan is not pulling the moisture out. It does tend to build up in most freezers a bit anyway. also

This always happens when you don't have 'FROST-FREE' refrigerator. Unplug the power cord or switch off the freezer for about one hour or more when lots of frost stacks (maybe weekly). Turn down the cold lavel to 2-3 instead of higher if there are not so many items in the freezer.
