I have a Hoshizaki Machain and it is leaking water above the door on the left side running down to the left leg when standing in front of the machin, what cause this to leak?


IF you are talking about a freezer, make sure the unit is level as the condensate pan may be overflowing. Also, if the door does not seal properly, it can cause "Sweating" as cold air is escaping and causing condensation at the door. Start with that first.

Small patch of ice if frost free freezer


Frost free does not mean no frost ever anywhere. It just means that there is a mechanism to defrost the evaporator on a regular basis. If there is a spot where frost is forming in the box it may just mean that a little bit of moisture that is not collected on the coil may be finding another cold spot to stick. The area where the fan blows into the cabinet is bound to be the coldest spot in the freezer therefore an ideal place to collect frost. Check the level of the unit and your door gasket to be sure the door is closing tight and true.

Side by side refrigerator is not cold. Bottom freezer is.


if the freezer is cold and the fridge is not then it can be several things. The freezer could have a bunrt out defrost heater, defrost timer faulty, fan not working in the freezer??. all of these things will stop your fridge getting cold, but your freezer will still be around minus 9 deg c. you wont get any air into the fridge as the coil in the freezer is prob all iced over. Dont worry about the heat on the door frame as it is only the anti sweat heater

Door gasket icing


Icing is caused by warm, moist air hitting cold air. Either your gasket is not properly sealing to the frame or the door frame heater is either off or not working. Some units have an off/on switch for that. The heater is usually referred to as an "Anti Sweat" heater. Make sure the door is closing and sealing. The door frame should be slightly warm to the touch. If not, look for no power to the heater or the heater could be damaged/ burned out.

Good luck and hope this helps,.

Whirlpool sbs fridge freezer - freezer stopped working


There are 2 or 3 things that would cause this. first make sure the condenser coils are not plugged with dust (vacumn or blow them out) next check to make sure the fan that cools these coils is running, (this is the most likely problem). if both of these check out ok then you would need to check to make sure your interior lights ar going off when the doors are closed as these will add extra heat and cause the center rails to run hot. last and most uncommon would be a freon system problem.  

fyi there is a hot gas freon line that runs in between the doors to prevent exterior sweating. when poor or no air flow problems for the condenser coil exist it causes this area to become hotter. 
One more thing. if you do determine that the condenser fan motor is bad you can put a normal house fan blowing on to the coil to help cool this area down until you can get the unit repaired. 
If you need any further assistance leave me a comment here and I'll gladly get back to you. Thanks Peyton

Can't open bedroom door


Check to see if the wood or the lock is binding. Try this:

Leave door open and turn on heat. After a few hours, try to close door and see if it's catching on the frame. If it is, plane the door where it is binding. You can check for binding by using chalk on the door and after closing it, see where the scrub marks are.

If it's the lock, take out the striker plate and using a chisel, make the cut out deeper. Install the striker plate and test it again.

Trips breaker when door opens


Sounds like the switch or wiring around the switch is shorting out. Most light switches pop out with a screw driver.Some older units might have a small heater in the door around the seal but usually not See if there is any wiring going through the hinge pin. If so you can safely cut and tape this off. The door might sweat a little but this is a solution. Please deal with this as it could be a shock hazard. You might not notice if you touch and are wearing dry shoes, but a barefoot child could be killed.
