I have a Fisher Paykel E388 upright freezer which freezes in the bottom couple of drawers but not toward the top. The motor is running and fan spins when you open freezer but stops when door is opened. Any...

Cold air always settles on the bottom Check the door seals above the cold area . Check for broken seals ,cracked seals and seals that are not touching the frame. Place a thin piece of paper between the seal and the frame and close the door . If the paper falls or is easy to pull out that may be your problem. Test at various points around the door.

there is a magnetic vinyl covered seal glued all around the door frame to seal the refridgerator from escaping cold. If this seal has come loose, it will adhear to the door frame a little after opening and then be pulled back and make a slapping sound. Check this seal to be sure it is not torn loose.

Door seal comes loose, shut the freezer door and the fridge door opens. What is a possible problem?

Most likely the seal is worn, however have you wiped all the build up of any mold and debris from the seal and frige frame that seal closes to?
Sometimes just a good cleaning with hot water and mild (not harsh sprays) soap like dish soap can bring the cling back.
Otherwise its replace the seal.
If your broke you can latch the door shut by making a Velcro handle on the outside.

Can I replace the freezer door seal on a kitchen aid myself?

some door gaskets snap into a track and others are held on to by screws in a metal frame. you can pull the back of the gasket apart to see which you have.

are you sure that the gasket is bad? you can do the dollar bill test by placing a dollar bill between the gasket and door frame and shutting the door. if the dollar bill fits snugly and is not loose the gasket is good. However you may be able to look at your gasket and see that it is torn or warped and not sealing good.

replacing the door gasket can be a little tricky but with a little patience and some very hot water to soak the new gasket in to make it easier to work with, you should be ok.

keep the bottom of your refrigerator and freezer frames clean (this is where everything spills and gets sticky) to keep the gasket from sticking to the frame and tearing up over time.

Freezer door does not close properly

inspect the seal all the way around the door. check to make sure that it is not in a bind when you open and close the door. if it is you can try a little wd40 or silicone spray on the gasket and frame of the refrigerator where the gasket meets the frame. this will help it slide accros the frame better.

if the gasket is bound up and out of shape, you can heat it up with very hot water to straighten it.

make sure that you keep the gasket and the door facing clean. spillage from the use of the refrigerator/freezer can cause the gasket to stick especially at the bottom.

Roper side by side refrigerator gettig very hot to

Most side by side units have a hot return gas line that is attached to the "mullion strip" to prevent sweating or moisture build up which could cause mold to build up on the door seal. The heat you feel is normal, however excessive or continuous heat is a symptom of the unit running too long.

Below is a link provided by, which will help you understand how a refrigerator works.
Tip: Make sure door seals are sealing adequately and keep entry time to a minimum during high heat periods. Use the rule "Get in, get what you want and get out"

Motor stopped running but lights & ice maker OK

this is most likely a bad condenser fan motor. pull refrig from wall remove compartment cover on rear and inspect the fan that cools the compressor. it is either jammed or seized up and needs replacing. while your at it you may want to clean the condenser coils as well they most likely have dust and lint build up on them. this motor is fairly easy to replace yourself if your mechanicaly inclined the part number should be 833697blade and can be purchased online, at a local appliance parts supply house, or thru a sears parts and servie center near you.
to keep the unit working until you get it repaired you can put a house fan blowing on the compressor area to keep it cool and this will get temps back to normal and cool down that center frame as well.
Thanks Peyton..

Hot Frame

the hot frame is due to poor or no air flow across teh condenser coil located in the compressor compartment in the rear of the unit. pull unit from wall remove card board cover and there is a fan that should be blowing. while you have it pulled apart be sure to clean the coil. the jelly roll looking peice the motor is mounted to. if the motor is bad you can put a house fan blowing on it until you get a ne fan installed. thx peyton

Something leaking from dispenser frame

You can remove the frame around the dispenser by pulling it gently and then you access to the screws that hold the dispenser in place. Could be a spillage behind the frame. Good Luck.
