Hi. I am Kelly and welcome to FixYa. Here is the real question..... Is the food staying frozen?

Freezers usually defrost 3 times a day (8 hr intervals) Some as often as 4 times a day. The freezer use concept is that it is not opened more than 3 times a day. (Yes there will be more times than that any given week)

Having said all of that.... some things to look at.

1. Check the door seal for any signs of tears... grease... collapse...

2. Make sure there are no gaps in the door or between the closed door and the seal.

3. Many people don't check this one... but make sure it is level. An un-level freezer can cause the door seal not to function correctly.

Now if your saying that the food is actually defrosting... then there are a few other things that can cause that.

A. Sticking / defective Defrost timer

B. Defrost element is not heating and the freezer goes through a VERY long defrost cycle as the contents have to reach 60 Deg F for the 60 Deg bi-metal thermostat to close and advance the defrost timer to start the compressor.

C. Intermittent operation of the 60 Deg thermostat

I hope this clears things up a bit for you.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Kelly

Freezer is Frozen shut


Try unplugging the freezer and leave the door open for about 30 to 45 minutes. Don't forget the door is open and plug the freezer back in. Set a timer in the kitchen so you don't forget. Once you can open the drawers look inside the freezer sides to find the controller. Most models have turn dial inside.

Siemens GI12B40GB/41 freezer full of ice. If switched on, the freezer ices up completely on th eoutside ofthe drawers and on the elements in 1 or 2 days.


Hello there,

When ice is building up on the outside of the drawers and on the element in 2 days. Then it means there is a problem with the defrost system of the refrigerator.

You need to run a test on three components inside the refrigerator, which are the defrost timer, defrost thermostat, and the defrost heater.

Once the three are tested, you will be able to get the faulty component and know how to replace it. here are links to tips on testing your faulty component.

Your defrost timer is probably staying on too long, or the defrost thermostat is not sensing that the temperature was that high. It does tell you that the defrost heater is operational, just that it is staying on too long.

General electric 5.0 chest freezer has water coming all over the floor.


The reason this happens is because the defrost timer is not turning back on when it needs to, causing the freezer to thou out and overfill the drip tray sitting on top of the compressor. A new defrost timer should be available from the local refrigeration wholesalers in your area.
