It is most likely the gasket. You can either try straightening out the gasket or get a replacement one and swap them out.

Why the freezer door opens when the refrigerator is closed?


I have a refrigerator with a top freezer that was constantly popping open, just enough to let the heat in and melt anything inside. This can also cause heavy frost build up from condensing humidity in the air. The frost can build up on the front face of the fridge where it meets the magnetic gasket on the door making it even harder to keep the freezer closed.
The cause in my case was that slamming the refrigerator door sent a puff of air through the ductwork to the freezer above. The sudden pressure increase popped the freezer door open and the door wasn't heavy enough to close on its own. Since this is a beer fridge in my garage I fixed it by putting a stick on childproof latch from H-D on the freezer door. :-)
If this was our main fridge indoors, I would first check to see how much force it takes to open the freezer vs. the refrigerator section. It should be about the same. If not, check the freezer door gasket to be sure no food or ice is built up on it and that the mating surface is clean. Check that the door is closing parallel to the mating surface. A misalignment would make it hard for the gasket to seal or stay sealed. Adjust hinges if necessary. If all seems ok, check to see if the fridge is level or possibly needs to be adjusted so it tilts back just a bit to make the doors self closing and not fighting gravity to stay closed. If all else fails, inspect the door gasket to be sure it isn't broken or stiffened with age. Inspect the bottom of the door gasket with a mirror. I once had a side by side with what looked like a good gasket until I felt around the bottom of the door. Replace if necessary.

Why does water freeze on bottom of freezer


Short answer: Because it's cold. It's what freezers do.

The long answer requires you to describe a bit more about what you've got and what is happening. What model freezer do you have? Is it a frost-free, or manual defrost? How old is it? Does it have a built-in icemaker?

Possibilities:
1) Your freezer is leaking some water from the ice maker or possibly the through-the-door water connections.
2) Your door gasket is no longer sealing, and humid air is getting in to the freezer, where the water condenses out and falls to the bottom of the freezer, creating ice. Make sure the door closes completely, that nothing stops it from closing, and that the gasket is tight; put a crisp dollar bill between the unit and the door gasket, and see if you can easily slide it around. If so, you need a new gasket.
3) Or, you may have a frost-free model and the hole where the water from the defrost cycle is supposed to drain is clogged. Pull things out of the bottom of the freezer, melt the ice, and see if there's a small hole. If so, make sure it's clear and clean; use a small brush, not anything sharp or abrasive.

Hello, actually my Maytag refrigerator is 22 cu ft. bottom -mount freezer. I'm pretty sure my freezer is the frost less kind but it has started getting frost and almost snow in it. I was just wondering...


Hello
Any freezer will accumulate frost on walls etc, eventually.Mostly in the summer when there's more moist air and door openings. The fan is supposed draw all moisture to the evaporator coils so you won[t get the frost , So if it is excessive check to make sure refridgerator compartment is keeping cold.If it seems warm to you,you probably have defrost issues.
If ok ,then check door gaskets for air leaks ,(excess moist air gets in).Or excess food ,especially at bottom might block some air flow.

Kenmore elite bottom freezer, refrigerator is cool but not cold I don't know what the problem may be


Hi,

Thank you for contacting fixya.com.

Check the condenser under the refrigerator is clogged with lint. Make sure that the condenser fan underneath the fridge is running properly. You can get to it through the back. Check the coils on the rear of the refrigerator and make sure they are clean and dust free. Also check the back wall or floor of the freezer section for frost. Check the evaporator fan to see if it is running. Check the condenser coils under the unit for blockage from dust. Check the condenser fan under the unit to see if it is running. If you have frost in the freezer there is a problem with the defrost system and the freezer will start to warm eventually as well as the fresh food section. If that is the problem you can check the defrost thermostat, defrost heater/s, and the defrost timer or adaptive defrost control If used on your unit or the main control board if so equipped. Also check the freezer to ensure it isn't over loaded with food stuff, reason being air must flow freely threw out the entire refrigerator in order for the thermostat to work correctly.

Defrost the freezer by disconnecting the power to the refrigerator and letting it sit for at least 24 hours with both the doors open to allow the frost to melt completely but it will build up again in 1-2 weeks and start the warming up again.

Food defrosted in top of upright freezer


Hello,

Sounds like a defective defrost timer

If its a frost free upright freezer and the evaporator is frosting up with a snow like frost you have a defrost problem.. defrost thermostat, heaters, or trimmer



Dirty condenser coils are not the problem. It's most likely the defrost timer or defrost heater. The heater should come on about 3 times per day to melt the ice on the evaporator coils. If the defrost timer is not turning on the heater or the heater is burnt out, the coils will freeze up

Hope this helpout and Good luck

Motor still running after gasket replacement


it will take at least 24 hours for the freezer to settle down to the correct temp -18c.the water is the frozen condensate that builds up inside the outer door over a period of time and should be allowed to drain away when you do a full 48hour defrost once a year....frost free means frost free where there is an air flow.....

Frost forms on top of food in my freezer (top of refrigerator)...even inside sealed bags of items like microwave Stouffer's, etc. Sometimes up to 1/4" thick! No frost on inside of freezer though. ?????


This excess frosting can be caused by leaky door gaskets, frequent door opening, dispenser door not closing good, anywhere air can get in. Gaskets should hold a dollar bill sung all the way around both doors.

Refrigerator is barley cold, still makes ice, condensation inside of frostless freezer


Hi: The fact that it still makes ice tells me the freezer is a zero degrees. When you said condensation in the freezer did you mean frost? If your defrost heater fails it will cause the frost free freezer to build up frost. The frost will build up and block the vent that supplies the cold air to the fresh food. The defrost heater is behind the metal wall at the back of the freezer, at the very bottom. A glass tube with a metal coil in it. The coil can break and stop the defrosting. Replace that. Use a hair dryer to melt the frost from behind the panel. All of it top to bottom. You need to remove all the frost to free up the airways. I hope this helps, Jeff

Defrost Problem


Make sure a piece of paper can be trapped between the door seal if not the seel is not tight enough. That would explain it taking so long to ice up. Another posibilty is to close to the back or side wall if you have space try to move it out just a little at a time. If it is overheating in the rear it can cause it to not operate properly.
