What's causing frost across the doortop of our upright freezer?


Sometimes there is a little spacer at the hinge to guide the door. I would make sure the door is squared up properly to the inside so that the space of the seal is consistent with the non frosting side. Don't forget, that top hinge can be adjusted to angle the door for even spacing. You can even put a spacer on the bottom to raise the door if necessary. Later, remember the door should close slowly on its own.

I have a fairly new (4 years old) frost free freezer in my garage, and it ''weeps'' a lot (has droplets of water along the top of the door and down the face of the front). It also forms a very light layer...


Good day,
Refrigerators and freezers have heaters imbedded in them to prevent sweating.
Years ago, they used low wattage heaters to do this.
Now, to conserve energy, instead of electric heaters they use the the discharge line off of the compressor which gets hot, and run it throughout the perimeter of the box to save energy.
In cold weather, if the compressor runs very little this type of heating system could be ineffective. One posiibility.
The second is the insulation, inside the walls is breaking down. Same type of effect. This problem should be under the 5 year part of your warranty, but you'll have to check with the selling dealer.

Domestic machines are designed for interior applications. That is, in an area populated by people.
I.E. 70 to 95 degrees.
The only test I know of, is to move it inside, or wait for warmer weather.
A good selling dealer who hopes for future business from you, if contacted, may be willing to research this particular make and model, with their service dept. and advise you without having to pay for a service call.

Refrigerator ,freezer and bottom not getting cold


Hello
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

The compressor is running ,but fan in top not running . The heater in top check good,also defrost thermostat is good and you think defrost timer is OK.
There was some ice on the top coil when you first took the back cover off, so you though may be heater or defrost time, but they test OK as far as you know.


Did you check the pressure to see if the coolant is low?
This will cause icing if you need freon!

How old is the fridge?
Here is an interesting report I just read!

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.

My Amana SSD22N fridge is not cold in the freezer--ice cream is cold, but very soft. The setting is up all the way. Ice making is slow/limited. I noticed the door gasket is very hot near the handles. ...


Hello winkey,

Check if the freezer is packed to the hilt so as the packages cover the air vents in the rear of the freezer?
The freezer compartments share the cold air with the rest of the fridge and when blocked can upset the balance of cold air and the proper circulation.

DWI1612C Leaking


Hello geoffdavies ,
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

It must be a hose leak or one of the seals around the, solenoid, or pump.
Or the least likely, if you ever heard a big bang ever inside the wash compartment!
I had a knife or fork that has been catapulted across the inside and it made a little body whole that that caused the leak. you may have not noticed because it is so small and only happens when it is on and running with pressure and a full load of water!
I'm only outlining all the possibilities!
And giving you ideas to check considering you sound like you did the repair your self.
Ideally to have it running and outside the whole you could see the leak.
Or we keep the front panel open and with a flash light in hand, lay on your back or side on the floor and look under the machine when it starts until you see the leak.
Let me know where the leak is!

Running continuously


Hello bxrjer,
Welcome,

You said, you have a FFU20FC6AW2 freezer that I have noticed is running continuously. Explains my $400 electric bill.


How old is the freezer?

The thermostat may be faulty.
But check out this list first.

If the black tubes running back and forth that carry the freon is under the freezer and behind the plastic grill down near the floor you may want to remove the grill cover and gently run a refrigerator brush across the coils. Ive seen them never cleaned and full of lint and dust 2 inches thick.
This is not good for the freezer or any refrigerator too!
They need to be clean so air can run across them or they over heat and get hot.
Room or outside weather is hot. It is normal for the freezer to work harder under these
conditions.

Reasons why Freezer may run too much or too long.

1.Freezer had recently been disconnected for a period of time. Freezer requires 4 hours to cool
down completely.
2.Large amounts of warm or hot food have been stored recently. Warm food will cause the
freezer to run more until the desired temperature is reached.
3.Door is kept open too long or too frequently. Warm air enters the freezer every time the door
is opened. Open the door less often.

4.Freezer door may be slightly open. (Freezer is not level. It rocks on the floor when it is moved slightly. This condition can force the cabinet out of square and misaligned the door.Freezer needs to be leveled if this occurs.
Floor is uneven or weak. Freezer rocks on the floor when it is moved slightly. Level the floor by using metal or wood shims under the freezer or brace floor supporting the freezer.

5.Temperature control is set too cold. Turn the control knob to a warmer setting. Allow several
hours for the temperature to stabilize.
6.Freezer gasket is dirty, worn, cracked, or poorly fitted. Clean or change gasket. Leaks in the
door seal will cause freezer to run longer in order to maintain desired temperature.


Let me know what you find
