Frost buildup


POSSIBLY faulty door seals allowing outside moisture to enter freezer compartment. This is especially prevalent in older units and/or tropical climate zones [ie high humidity] ... OR if freezer is OVER-LOADED with food items !!!
If you are putting in large quantities of fresh produce to be frozen it is quite often better to PRE-COOL all the items in your refrigerator PRIOR to placing in your FREEZER as they will usually have a high moisture content which will cause frost build-up in your freezer ...

Freezer defrost working but leeks


Hey friend, I appreciate the post!

I understand that your refrigerator is defrosting but you are getting a patch of ice to form due to water leaking inside the freezer. It may be a moisture build up in your freezer. Which may be caused by the door being slightly opened, when that happens warm air can enter the refrigerator and cause a moisture build up. You could also check to see if your door seal is bad, the way to test that is to place a dollar bill between the body of the refrigerator and close to the door. Pull the dollar bill out, if it sticks it is good, but if bill comes out easily the gasket need to be checked. Hope this is helpful- Matt

I have condensation coming off the refrigernt tube that runs from condenser to freezer also ice build up on inside to the point of tearing the metal on inside back panel. What causes this ?


A side door heater is already defective.
It has heating element, it is there to dry any moisture build up around freezer door.
When it become defective, moisture or condensation occur, hence moisture is there.
Causing it to rust build or develope on the metal of the freezer.
Rust weaken the metal and soon tearing it.
Have it check by a service technician before it getting worse.
Good luck.

We are experiencing heat along the panel between the fridge and the freezer. What could cause that?


Most refrigerators have some of the condenser coil running through this area to keep condensation down. As long as the unit is cooling fine and it is warm but not very hot there probably isn't a problem. You can check to see if the coils on the bottom are dirty, a cover will have to be removed. Also check to see if the condenser fan is running which is close by the compressor.

Freezer builds up with frost about every 60-75 days. have to empty the freezer and allow to thaw for a few hours


I think I can assume the freezer isn't a "frost-free".
A short physics lesson; hot air holds more moisture than cold air; hot air will flow from a warm area to a colder area, and the colder area will cause the moisture to condensate and freeze(if colder area below freezing, as a freezer should be), causing frost build up.The more often the freezer is opened, the more frost will build up.
Now for 3 possibilities:1) If it is a self-defrosting type, check your defrost timer control...not working, or not working often enough.2) Door seals damaged and need replacement.3)Make the kids stay out of freezer.

What is the normal amount of water accumulation in the drain tray


No, it's not normal for it to be over flowing. Check to make sure you have the temps set correctly. Timer/electronic control on these units have been known to "run" too long, causing the evap to build up too much frost before going into defrost mode. Check to make surre to that you don't have signs of "moisture" around the doors, if you do then you have a door gasket leaking air into the frig or freezer causing excessive moisture within the evap coils.

Frig too warm, freezer too cold


if there is ice build up you have a defrost problem. either the heater bimetal thermostat timer or evap fan could be bad. you could also have a stopped up drain. if the coils get too much ice build up the air wont beable to travel through them and the bad air flow will cause the fridge to become warmer

Freezer not defrosting


Most likely there is a leak in your freezer seal allowing moisture to build up and form the ice blockage.

Water on the bottom shelf of the Refridgerator


Has the refrigerator got a wet inner back?
Ff this is wet, adjust it until this solid ice 'blobs', bt not encrusted, like in a freezer
The refrigerator may not be cool enough and the natural warm moisture allowed into the cool compartment when the door is open is condensing into fluid before it is cooling sufficiently to suspend the moisture as a vapour. If the cool compartment is cool enough, any warm air admitted ill be chilled before it is allowed to condense, keeping the refridgerator dry.
However, the only drawback is that you will have to monitor it to prevent the build up of excesive ice.
Also, whether the refridgerator is either empty of full willaffe the day to day operation.
Hope this helps.

Lg bottom freezer is always unpredictable!!?!? many times its on a defrost cycle that we cannot figure out WHY??!!! we are upset opening the freezer to again see all of our frozen foods not so frozen!...


The LG fridges are all controlled by the board. Depending on the year of your unit, the unit will go into defrost once every 12 hours on the older boards, and once every 24 hours on the new ones. The older boards, were 12 hours, these were also the ones that had the problem. On the back of your unit, open the panel that covers the board, if it is 6871JB1375A it is old and could be the cause for the problem. You will need the xxxx1375D this is the modified board that should solve the issues.
