New gaskets are expensive to replace (usually $80-150 each door) if this sounds reasonable to you call for service, however if this happens to be a spare fridge or in a location where it is not seen you can repair the gaskets with duct tape. it doesn't look the greatest but it works and its cheap! run the tape longways with the gasket and make sure its smooth and the same shape as the gasket originally.

May tag plus madel MBB2256GEW has condensation between the closed refrigerated and bottom freezer door . We already replaced the seal on the frig. but no luck, I open the frig door and it drips .


This is likely condensation that occurs when the surface of the door frame (the part the gaskets close against) drops below dew point. Dew point is the temperature at which moisture condenses and varies from day to day depending on temperature and humidity. Refrigerators have a "dew point compensator" that is either an electric mullion heater or a "Yoder" loop made up of a part of the condensor coil. Both supply a small amount of heat that keeps the surfaces above dew point. Be certain your box doesn't have a switch for "Energy Saver". If it does, then turn off the energy saver. This switch controls the mullion heater. Turning the energy saver off - and the mullion heater on - will prevent more moisture from forming. It will NOT remove moisture already there, just wipe that off first. Other external causes could be a HVAC duct blowing cold air on the refrigerator, a refrigerator/freezer door left slightly ajar or (the worst case) a separated heater inside the case. (On a foamed in place cabinet this is not repairable.)

Ge profile 26 pfss6pkx Light comes on but won't get cold, no fan running


It doesn't cool
  1. Condenser coils
Make sure you dust off the condenser coils to prevent dust build up and overheating due to it overworking. Simply unplug and use a long coil cleaning brush to get rid of debris.
  1. Check seals
If your refrigerator door seal is broken, warm air is pushing its way inside the unit, thus causing it to not cool properly. Prevent this from happening by replacing your seal and keeping the cool air inside.
  1. Temperature controls
Ensure that your thermostat is set correctly, usually 38-40 degrees Fahrenheit.
  1. Defective condenser fan
When this fan is defective, cold air is prevented from flowing through the vents. It may require replacement.
  1. Compressor issues
Check if there are clicking sounds coming from the compressor as it tries to start. If there is a clicking, it is one of only two options, either the start capacitor or a bad compressor. A start capacitor is fairly inexpensive whereas a sealed system repair on the compressor is very expensive and often not cost effective. Refrigerator Repair Help Troubleshooting and Parts

Electrolux Built in freezer door not closing.


I'm suspecting the door also because of the lack of suction power. you have to check the gasket more. Frost around the door is a great indication of where warm moist air is coming into it.

Is this unit new? Is it new to you? Has this problem just developed? I need the history to help you. If it is new, you have a year warranty. All units built today are as air tight as possible. When one door is opened and closed. The other door can pop open. To alleviate this issue the unit's front levelers must be adjusted to tilt the unit back slightly. The door or doors might still pop open but will close by themselves. If I can help you futher, let me know.

With towels we get leaky front door like load is too heavy? does not happen with other loads whirlpool duet sport front loader washer 2 years old. new problem last two months.


Most likely cause is the door seal or proper name for part is door bellows where the door seal to the machine. Check for tears or rips inside the bellows and any cuts where the door meets the seal. The seal could also be pronated toward the inner tub too much just from wear. The seal would need to be replaced. Also make sure the door is locking. The reason it happens with the towels (heavy load) is b/c they put more pressure on the door making it easier to break the water tight seal. Please rate this post.

Water leaks from under the middle but not all the time maybe once or twice per month


condensation normally drains thru a tube at the bottom of the frig to a drip pan under the condenser coil (under the frig) .. the water normally just evaporates from the pan .. if there is too much moisture in the frig, that usually means a door is ajar (not closing completely) or the seal on the door is not sealing properly .. warm moist air from the room getting in will cause too much condensation .. the drip pan may overflow ... you should check the drip pan for damage (clean the condenser while you are down there) .. also check the tube that carries the condensation (back bottom of the frig) .. it has a one way valve (lets water out only) that becomes stuck sometimes and needs cleaning.. if there is a large amount of moist things in the frig then that an cause the problem as well .. just put those things in plastic bags or containers to eliminate that problem ..

Water on btm of glass shelves and water in bottom of frig


sounds like you have a gap in the door seal, which results in condensation forming inside unit. Use a blow dryer to heat the seal around the door and ensure that the fit is tight.

Whirlpool Side by Side Refrigerator


You have a refrigerant loop that runs through the cabinet of the refrigerator and usually runs right under the door gasket seal. Usually, when you are getting too hot on the loop, it is because your refrigerator cannot shed the heat it is removing from inside the refrigerator. This is most likely caused my either a dirty condenser unit or a faulty condenser cooling fan. (both located underneath the unit). The fan should be running anytime the compressor is running.

Duct from freezer to frig is blocked with ice, frig warm


give the unit a full defrost then unblock the drain hole. it sounds like the tiny defrost heater element may not be working and is therefore causing excess frost to build up on the freezer evaporator. also check door seals are not holled anywhere.
