Bottom Freezer question

We have had this refrigerator for over a year. All of the sudden, it is difficult to pull out the large wire rack in the bottom freezer. It sticks....Any ideas? We have had no problems- the unit has operated fine.

    If I have a buildup of ice, how would I clear that up? We tried wiping the rack rail, and it seemed to be ok for awhile ( few hours) . Now it is sticky again. How would we clear the icy buildup ?

The best solution would be to remove all the food from the freezer, wrap it in newspaper and put it all together in a coolbox to keep it frozen, better still move it to another freezer. Defrost the freezer compartment by turning it off and leave the door wide open for an hour or two. The ice buid up will completely melt. Remember to soak up the melted water with more newspaper or old towels at the bottom. Ultimately make sure the doors are making a proper seal so that air is not allowed in and future ice build up will be slowed.

Check first that you do not have a build up of ice. Then check that the Wire rack has not become distorted or something has become unclipped on it.

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.

You need to unfreeze the drain at the back bottom of the freezer section. Pull out the bottom wire rack, and you'll see a small drain hole. Use a turkey baster and put hot water down it. If you have the manual, it has instructions.

How to replace seal on the freezer door


Hello,


  • Take food out of freezer
  • Take rack out
  • Take out any ice cube racks
  • Remove ice accumulated in the bottom of the compartment (I used a hammer)
  • Unscrew the back panel inside the freezer compartment
  • You won't be able to remove the panel right away because of the plastic duct is mated to the bottom of the freezer compartment.
  • Lift the panel up to unmate the duct and the bottom, and pull the top end of the panel toward you. Don't pull too hard because there are electrical wires attached to it.
  • Disconnect the wires and remove the panel / duct.
  • I saw an accumulation of ice and a hole.
  • Remove whatever ice you can.
  • Pour boiling water into the hole to remove ice inside the hole.
  • You'll know you've succeeded when water runs easily down the hole.
  • The water should collect underneath the fridge - there is a grille that you can remove (Just pull) and you'll see a pan where the water is collecting.
I just did this so I'm not sure if it will happen again ...

Good luck

Roaring sound


I have had the same issues. I have owned my LFX25960 for 18 months. All the cooling, noise, and condensation problems are related to 2 fans. One for the freezer/refrigerator compartments and One for the Ice Maker. The fans, apparently, are not sufficient to move enough air through the coils located behind a plastic panel in the freezer compartment. The part numbers for my fans are 1. Ice Maker 4681JB1029E and Refrig/Freezer 4681JK1004E. It is not impossible, but fairly difficult to replace them yourself. You have to remove the large slide out freezer drawer and glides. Then work the back freezer panel loose from the bottom. Be careful not to break it. It is plastic.
Routine maintenance: Pull the refrig out from the wall and blow-out the coils and fan located on the lower right rear. You might find it easier to do this by removing the cover on the lower, back of the refrig.
