Eurocold chest freezer

The seal on chest freezer door is split open and thus layer of ice forms with water drops all over outside wall of freezer. How do I repair and where do I find parts - is it an entire door that is required?

SOURCE: Delfield Refrigerator/Freezer Condensation forming outside door seals

I would expect at the very least a heater circuit around the freezer door. Some of the commercial units also have sprung doors to keep the doors firmly shut which you could check by opening the doors. Door heater circuits are normally very reliable and it would be worth checking the voltage is getting to them, they are also a pain to change out. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Integrated fridge freezer growing iceberg..

problem could be one of two things.
insulation breakdown will cause an iceball to form.
if the compressor is failing, then frost line does not reach the thermostat poisition and compressor runs all time and an ice ball will also build up
in either case, not worth repair

SOURCE: Ice door flapper does not open

It is possible that the solenoid wire connections may have come loose.  You will have to pop off the front cover of the display panel to gain access to the solenoid.  To remove the panel, look below the bottom of the panel to find 2 screwdriver holes.  Slide a screwdriver in one of them and gently pry open the panel.

SOURCE: ice build up

Check that the door is closing properly otherwise the freezer will be working overtime to cool and ice will form. If the door seal is good, it is possible that the thermostat needs to be checked.

SOURCE: Ice forming bottom of freezer leaking out the door

It is acutually a collector pan for the drain hose. When the refrigerator runs a defrost cycle (about every couple days), that pan collects the water from the ice that is melted and drains it through a hose inside the unit, to a pan under the unit. You will have to pull the back panel off the back of the freezer and melt it with either hot water or a hot blowdryer. Do it until you see the water draining freely into the bottom pan.

Samsung refrigerator is freezing up on back panel of refrigerator . Will defrosting the whole unit do any good? The unit is 2 years old


well yes and no , defrosting it will temporally make it work , but main problem is there isn't proper air flow over evaporator coils id clean them with soap and water while defrosting out unit , if low airflow is allowed to continue then refrigerant gas will build to high press and escape and render unit a total replacement

Why is ice forming in freezer


Ice layer inside freezer box floor - Defrost drain line clogged.

Frost or ice on freezer box top - Room air leaking into the fridge from door seals.

Frost on the Freezer box back wall means unit is not defrosting properly.

Freezer is not defrosting


1. Remove all of the food from inside the freezer and place it into the ice chest. Use more than one ice chest, if necessary. Cover the food with ice from a 10 lb. bag of ice. Alternatively, place all of the food from your freezer into the refrigerator compartment, packed tightly together.
2. Place one or two 10 lb. bags of ice into one or two large bowls inside the refrigerator compartment to keep the food chilled. Keep the door to the refrigerator tightly closed and avoid opening it during the freezer defrosting process.
3. Unplug the unit and leave the freezer door open.
4. Let the freezer defrost overnight or for at least eight hours.
5. Use the towels to wipe up the melted ice.
6. Plug in a hair dryer and direct it to the interior of the freezer to melt any remaining ice from the walls and door. Be sure to direct it into the vents of the freezer, too.
7. Wipe up any water from ice melted with the hair dryer from inside and around the freezer.
8. Plug the freezer back into the outlet, and return food still solidly frozen to the freezer compartment from the ice chest or refrigerator. Use any thawed foods within a day or two or discard.

Ice is forming on bottom and back wall of freezer can any one help with this


there are two types of freezer, one is upright freezer (same as refrigerator on outside look but inside all the layers are same as the freezer of an ordinaryrefrigerator) the other one is the chest type freezer(basically it looks like a chest cabinet),now about the forming of ice at the bottom and back wall, well should be all side of the freezer should have ice on it,

Just one question to ask? Did you used any sharp object in removing ice(ex. knife, ice pick , etc,)

If you do then there are a possibility that you do some hole on the tubes where the Freon Gas (chemical refrigerant) are passing thru, then in that case you might have leakage. Well that means you really need to call a technician to do the job, because you'll gonna need to fix the hole and re-charge a freon gas.(having not enough refrigerant on the system, your refrigerator might not able to produce ice completly.

The other possible reason is that your motor compressor might be damaged(possible reason: Lost compression) it has something to do with pump compression inside the motor (only technician can solve this problem)

Ice crystals forming on inside front freezer panel


Very possible the door seal is not properly sealed. Warm inflowing air onto a cold coil will cause ice build up at the lid.

Maytag side by side fridge freezer leaking water


Your drain plug within the evap area of the freezer is frozen, turn frig off, let sit for day or two with doors open. Once all ice has melted then take rear freezer evap cover off and pour water into try and make sure it drains, if not then unplug drain. This is usually caused by a defrost heater bad or unit not going into defrost when it's supposed to, may be main board.
