SOURCE: Frosty bottom of Leibher Freezer (supposed to be no frost)

                     

 I am trying to contact Leibherr; I see that production is located in the United Kingdom. I have found an office located in New York. I’m sure this is not helpful and your freezer is very expensive and I will try to get technical information (if they will allow me access). Sounds as if the defrost timer is not working and that would be the first thing I would look at if I could see the wiring diagram. If it is a common defrost it will be a timer that cycles every 8 hours. If it’s a digital defrost with circuit board I won’t be able to locate it until I get a response from Leibherr. The problem could also be in the defrost element. Here is the link that I have found.  Let me know anything or information you have obtain since the beginning of your search that will help me help you get the problem solved, Thank You, Sea Breeze HVAC

SOURCE: ice/frost build up inside the freezer

You have a defrost problem. The coils freeze up behind the freezer wall and the air does not flow properly. Replace the heater, defrost timer, and thermostat. get me the model number and i will give you the part numbers so you can order the parts.

SOURCE: frost free fridge/freezer - not cold in fridge

The most common problem with refrigerators not cooling when the freezer cooling is the fan which supplies cold air to the freezer. Not easy to get to in most cases. Another problem is the vent to the fridge part is blocked or not operating with the adjustment control.

SOURCE: frosting & water dripping from freezer in Frost free freezer

Hi, You will find that your problem relates to the defrost heater in the freezer. You will need to take the drawers out and remove the back panel to access the evaporator. There is a foil heater that lays underneath the evaporator and it will need to be changed. Along with the klixon that controls it. This will ensure that both parts are good. Your problem will then be fixed no more water!
Good luck................

SOURCE: frost free freezer is frosting up

Your door seal is not sealing properly . Check and use a hairdryer to soften the seal and the magnetic portion should seal itself against the cabinet .

How do you make a freezer frost free?


Frost free means that the evaporator coil will not accumulate a thick layer of frost. It will not prevent frost from accumulating on the walls of the freezer. To slow down the amount of frost build up inside the freezer, do not keep the freezer door open for any longer than necessary. The freezer door seal may be defective. This would allow moisture in that would freeze on the inside walls. A heater with timed intervals to come on is one way for a frost free feature. But this will not work for frost build up on the inside walls of the freezer. It would only melt the frost and then it would refreeze again.

I wantto buy a new fridge e difference betwun ice diamond frost free and just frost free


""Ice diamond frost free"" sounds better than just plain "Frost free" and I bet they charge lots for the extra letters, simply, it is a way of sucking people in to pay extra for something they think is far superior but infact is no different. Frost free is frost free, you cant change the way it works but you can change the way it sounds!!!! Hope that will save you some hard earned dollars.

Dont forget to vote for the solution I just gave.

Sheet of ice forms in bottom of freezer


Frost free fidges are supposed to stay frost free because the automatically defrost regularly. When they do this they may drain water down to the bottom of your fridge. Look for a tray that catches this water underneath the unit. Make sure yo keep it emptied. If you live in a very warm climate you may be getting a lot of humidity inside. There may be a switch that you can change for lower moisture.

FROST AND ALARM LIGHT ON


Your defrost timer, switch or circuit board is probably shot or it would be defrosting.

Use a fridge / freezer thermometer to tell if temperture high (it should be 0 F plus or minus 5 degrees) to determine if it is too high - this is normal if frost builds up but will get worse unless repaired.

Frost build up in a frost free freezer


It could be the door gasket. It could also be that the fridge needs a good defrosting. (especially if it is an older fridge)

When I bought my house I had the same problem with the fridge that came with the house. I assumed the previous owner had been defrosting it regularly, which he had not.

Eventually I decided to try a full defrost, and my fridge now works like new.
