French doors don't close without a push.


Take the gaskets out again. warm them in very hot water for 5 mins before refitting them on the opposite door. Then adjust the hinges to check. Also make sure the shelves are pushed right the way in, not keeping the door open.

Frezzer keeps icein over


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

There are several things to check:

1.) Door Gasket -Take a piece of paper. With the freezer door closed run the paper around the gasket. If you can do that, then you are not getting a good seal.
Repair: Clean the freezer door gasket with soap and water. While still wet, take a hair dryer and a spatula, going around the gasket, heat the gasket while pulling the gasket out to expand it.
Note: This only solves the problem if there is frost in the front area of your freezer.

2.) Freezer fan not working - In some cases, The freezer fan helps to prevent warm air from getting into the freezer.

3.) Food Storage - Make sure you do not overload the freezer, and that the food product is inside the bounds of the racks.

4.) Fresh Food Section Air Vent Wide Open - This is your probable cause: Heat goes to Cold like a magnet. When you open your fresh food section door and then close it you are forcing warm air up the vent that goes to the freezer. You probably have a broken air vent assembly.

Kenmore freezer too warm


Are you referring to the internal temperature of the freezer? If so
have you checked that the door is closing ok and that the door seals are meeting the door frame all round?
It might be that the coolant gas has slowly leaked out. A good indication this has happened is that the bottom of the freezer is a lot warmer than the top. If this is the case a serviceman will need to drain the existing gas and then recharge, re-pressurise and seal.
If you are referring to the outside cabinet temperature then it's probably ok and there is no fault. You would expect the outside panels of a freezer to be around room temperature or warmer as the freezer removes heat from inside the cabinet and expels it outside.

Freezer not cold. Can't get to coils to see if they are frozen.


Hi grammycather, thank you for allowing me to assist you. Here are a few simple troubleshooting tips that may help you resolve this issue:

First check clearances around your freezer. There must be adequate space around a freezer with a static condenser so that air can circulate properly. Proper clearances include 1" at the back and 3" on top of the unit.

Examine your doors. If the doors have been opened too often or for too long, this may have allowed warm air to enter the appliance. Make sure to shut the door completely and be sure not to keep the door open for too long. Even leaving a door slightly open can allow too much warm air intake. Make sure freezer is level and keep food and containers from blocking the door closing.

Check the door seal. You do this by placing a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet, double check to see if the door is being blocked by anything that may be stopping it from closing. If nothing is stopping the door from closing then refer to a tech to replace the gasket.

Check to see if the condenser is dirty. A dirty condenser cannot release heat efficiently into the surrounding air. Cleaning the condenser may be necessary, more if you have animals in the house. If you have condenser coils, they should be wiped occasionally with a damp cloth to remove accumulated dust. The condenser coils should be wiped occasionally with a damp cloth to remove accumulated dust.

Check for any obstructions to the vent to ensure proper air flow. If the vent is blocked, the air in the freezer will not get cool.

I suggest to double check the freezer control. If the freezer control is set too warm, set freezer control to a colder setting and allow 24 hours for temperature to stabilize.

If these assessment measures prove to be ineffective, I would strongly suggest contacting an authorized service technician who would be better able to assist you in the diagnosis and repair of your unit. You can often locate an experienced technician in your area by going to the manufacturer website.

The compressor on my refregerator seem to be overheated it is a side by side the insides of the doors are warm and the freezer will not free but it is running there is cool air in freezer


The doors should be warm. There or heaters in the doors or what they call a yodelers loop in the frame around the doors that keeps condensation from forming. Make sure the fan if blowing on the compressor and the fan inside the freezer is also running. If so be sure there is no ice built up on the bottom inside back panel of the freezer. If so you will have a defrost problem and the coil is full of ice and not allowing the air to flow through it and cool the fridge. If there is ice, the heater behind the panel is most likely bad.

The top half of the freezer does not work


I have a Scandinova chest freezer and the left hand side froze, but not the right side, because the compressor in the box under the right side of the freezer was getting so hot, a small amount of heat was conducting back through into the right side of the freezer and preventing anything on that side from freezing!
I solved this problem by running the compressor outside of the of the freezer box, by taking the air vent off, unbolting the compressor and then pulling out by about 20cm and running it from there.

Upright freezer


sounds like your freezer isn't maintaining a constant (cold) temp. A variation from cold to warm would cause your problems. Normal opening the door and looking for the ice cream over and over would cause a gradual increase in glacier activity in the freezer. I don't know of any quick easy fix-but wait, how about checking the door gasket? Get a piece of paper, close the door on it, move the paper all around the door, testing to see if you can pull it out easily (bad gasket), or does the paper not want to come out?(good gasket) If the gasket seems ok, it may be time to retire the global ice cream warming freezer countrycurt0

Upright Freezer self defrosting


THE (SUCKING AIR) OCCURS WHEN THE TEMP IS VERY LOW IN THE FREEZER AND YOU LET WARM AIR IN BY OPENING THE DOOR. WHEN THE DOOR IS CLOSED, THE WARM AIR IS COOLED CAUSING A VACUUM IN THE FREEZER. IF THE DOOR SEAL HAS A LEAK AROUND IT, THE SUCKING SOUND WILL NOT TAKE PLACE. CHECK THE DOOR SEAL FOR A GAP AT ONE OF THE CORNERS OR ALONG THE SIDES,BACK, BOTTOM, OR TOP.IF THE SEAL IS O.K., HOW IS THE TEMP? IF THE TEMP SEEMS WARM, YOU MAY NEED TO CHECK THE SEALED SYSTEM. LOOK AT THE FROST PATTERN ON THE EVAPORATOR. IS IT COMPLETE AND UNIFORM? IS ONLY PART OF THE EVAPORATOR FROSTED BACK? IF THE ENTIRE EVAPORATOR IS FROSTED BACK UNIFORMLY, THE SEALED SYSTEM IS O.K.
