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.

Why GE Freezers does not stop


A bad thermostat stuck in the closed position could cause it to run continuously.

A bad door gasket could cause it to do the same. But it would have to be really bad.

The door not fully going closed could be leaking warm air into the cavity causing the issue.

Gasket installation


I tried to re-initialize the freezer by unplugging it for a few seconds, then re-plugging it and turning the freezer back on, but, unfortunately, to no avail. NOT A SOLUTION EITHER, BUT AT'S A TRY.

Lots of ice build up in freezer #TZ106921


It sounds like a bad door gasket. Check it carefully. Try placing a piece of typing paper in the door, close it and see if it stays, if not replace the gasket.
Good luck,

Stand up freezer builds up frost quickly


It sounds like you may be on the right track here. If the gasket is old, hard, and brittle, it will allow moisture to be administered into the freezer, causing frost buildup. Not to mention, that old door gasket is leaking out a lot of cold air. Your best bet is to provide the model number (as you've shown here) and the serial number to an appliance parts store or authorized GE appliance parts outlet. They should be able to provide you with a brand new gasket. Removal and re-installation of the new gasket is fairly simple and you'll notice a big difference, not only in the lack of frost buildup on the inside of the freezer (especially in the summer) but you may even see a noted improvement on your electric bill as well!

I hope this helps and let me know if you need any further assistance! :)

How do I change the door seal on a gibson UR freezer?


The most important thing is to make sure the new seal is warmed up to room temperature so it is soft and workable. Since the seal on mine is attached to the top door there is nothing to gain by leaving the door attached. Working upside down would leave the door open longer than just taking it off.

If you still have food in the freezer just put blankets over the top until the door is back on. If you have screws holding the seal it will go much easier. Mine has plastic pins that break easily pulling them out.

Get the edges as straight as possible to avoid leaks.

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
