Question about Freezers
LG GR 469BSRA frost-free fridge-freezer;
internal floor of freezer icing-up.
3 1/2 years old problem only in last 6 months.
Have now disconnected F/F, all internal visible ice melted&removed. Should I expect 'hidden ice', between internal & external casings, to melt out onto floor in next 24-48 hours?
Without removing internal & external plates can't inspect to see if trunking to compressor has blockage.
Where would I find the compressor on this model?
After a thorough defrost, should the F/F be as good as new, in that it will take another 2-3 years before I have icing problms again?
OR should I not attempt DIY & get a local engineer, LG aren't able to do anything for free as I didn't opt to take out a 5 year costly maintanence insurance at time of purchase (I've still got a Scandinova F/F 25< years old, still going strong in the garage. ' based my decision not to buy maintanence insurance on it's brilliant performance. Next time I buy a F/F I won't buy frost-free!) LG are costly to call out as I live far from any city.
Drain plug and or line probably plugged should be clear if ice was problem in between the casing shouldnt be a problem let unit run normal and check temp the amount of high humidity and usage [open and closing of doors] has caused a lot of frost free and regular units to frost and or ice up
