Question about Kenmore 16.7 cu. ft. / 473 liter Upright Freezer 23725

1 Answer

Frost Free Freezer

I have a GE Freezer with the Freezer at the bottom, I read some of the post and it sounds as if I am having the same issues as they are with Ice Collecting in the bottom of the freezer.  
I have done the clean up, the manual defrost, but the ice just keeps on coming back. After a certain amount of time water will be on the floor under or in front of freezer. 
I am very technical, so if I have to get a amp reader please tell me where to start.  Thanks RH

Sounds like you have a clogged/frozen defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials)

    if thats exact issue that your having strictly freezen drain line.

    then after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wire around the heater( black calrod heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now everythime the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over

How do I defrost my chest freezer


Hello friend, thanks for your post!

If you Frigidaire freezer is frost free and not defrosting the best thing to do is to manually defrost your appliance. You can do so by disconnecting power from your freezer for two to four hours. If you have a frost free freezer you could be experiencing an issue with thermostat or sensor and they may need to be replaced.
I would recommend reaching out to a professional to come out and diagnosis your freezer to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

IHave a ge side by side refrigerator not cold enough and freezer has frost on back wall and some items are not frozen


your GE self defrost is not working. 1. clean the ice and look for the heater element and your lemi switch. If you have a GE profile, they have a motherboard at the back of the ref. if all i the part i mentioned are working, just replaced the motherboard. at searspartdirect.com

Sounds like an air leak. Check the door gasket. If that is sealing well all the way around, try putting a peice of foil duct tape over the two small vents in the bottom of the door.

Sheet of ice forms in bottom of freezer


Frost free fidges are supposed to stay frost free because the automatically defrost regularly. When they do this they may drain water down to the bottom of your fridge. Look for a tray that catches this water underneath the unit. Make sure yo keep it emptied. If you live in a very warm climate you may be getting a lot of humidity inside. There may be a switch that you can change for lower moisture.

Frost free freezer


Hi, It sounds like the defrost drain is plugged. UNPLUG the freezer. Remove the rear panel and you will be able to find the drain hole and remove the ice. Once you get the iceout of the drain. try and fluxh it with hot water (A baisting serigne works great). Sometines they plug up with duse from underneath. I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Maytag model MQU1556AEW, frost-free freezer forms ice in bottom.


I'm not sure if this will help but the freezer that is located on the bottom of my refrigerator started forming ice on the back part where the cold air was supposed to be coming out. I kept hearing a hissing sound like water dripping on a hot surface. I called the repair man in and he had to replace the defrost timer. Once he did that it worked like a charm.

I am not an expert by any means although removing ice from a frost-free freezer is a pain and this took care of the problem for me. Good luck!

GE upright freezer


If this is a frost free model the fan could be bad. If not frost free it is probably low on freon. I don't recomment fixing this as you can never really trust the freezer again. Most of the time the leak can't be found and adding freon is only a temp solution.
