Re: Need help, fast

Sounds like she put a hole in the evaporator.BAD NEWS!!! If it is accessable it may be repaired and the unit recharged. The proper way to defrost a freezer is to empty it and pull the plug with the doors opens.Let it melt on it's own.

Only 6 months, have to defrost.

However this will take long so you use a straight screwdriver or something like a chisel to remove as much scale as possible before leave it in solutions.

The ice build up is related from the time keep the door open and the humidity that is in the air. So the time is variable. Sometimes if the door is not sealed closed the ice is build up very fast.

I have a true tuc48-f freezer..Problem: Frost build up to the point that the doors freeze shut and I have to scrape the ice off. Also at time it make a rackety noise like the fan hit solid ice.

It seems you have diagnosed your own problem.
Check the defrost circuit. It appears your defrost cycle is not working.
Also,check the door seals closely.
A loose or broken door seal can contribute to these symptoms as well

This sounds like you either have a bad fan motor or if you have ice built up on the inside back panel. It could be that the fan blades are hitting ice built up around it. If so, you will have a defrost problem that will need to be addressed to fix the unit. But to repair it so it will stop making the noise, you can defrost the ice (if present) with a hair blow dryer. This will keep the ice away for a few days. Good luck.

If there is a defrost problem, the heater (located around the coil) is most likely the problem.

Side by side fridge not cooling, not making ice

if it seems like the evaporator is getting cold then your sealed system should appear to be ok. you need the evap fan to transfer cold air into fresh food section. if not turning u need to replace fan motor. make sure your not getting to much frost build up on the evap.

Ice forming very fast on top shelf only

You said you checked the seal but one thing you can try to be double sure the seal is tight put a thin layer of vaseline along the entire seal it will fill in any gaps and you can be sure it is sealing completely.

Kenmore upright freezer

You should check the drain hose inside underneath the freezer.This is done at the back down below. Mine was looped too high and water could not get out. I took the loop off that was holding the hose and now water can drain away without freezing. You can pour warm water down the drain hole to melt the ice in the tube if you remove the grate covering it inside the freezer. I have read that several Kenmore upright freezer
owners have the same problem. I was astonished that this was the problem and I had put up with it for too long, defrosting the freezer every 2-3 months!.Give it a try!
