Some units have a selector switch that says; reduce moisture/save energy. If you have this its obvious what to do. If you don't have one or are getting condensation anyway, check the door gasket. Make sure its getting a proper seal. The outside air has water in, aka, humidity. If the unit sucks air from outside, as it cools it will condense and make dropletts accumulate on the top. The drainage from the defrost may also be seeping in and cause the water too. Especially if its on the bottom. It may have a clogged drain line.

My Haier Chest Freezer started releasing water from underneath. It´s 2 years old


A Freezer usually has a condensor drain coming out of the compressor, that empties into a condensation dish underneeth, where condensation water is picked up and Re-evaporated.

It is most likely that your Drain is clogged.
Happened to me.
Have someone check your Drain, and if needed unclog it with a small prying tool into the tube.

How do you stop the condensation in breathing tube


I am assuming the breathing tube is the evaporator drain underneath the refrigerator freezer. You do not stop the condensation. This tube gets rid of the condensate that forms during defrost of the evaporator. The condensate drains into a provided collecton pan under your refrigerator. If the tubing has fallen out, this can cause the condensate to pour out into the floor and can cause damage to flooring and walls.
Pull the refrigerator out and remove the 6 to 8 1/4 inch drive screws that hold on the cardboard cover on the lower back side. Find the tubing and direct it back into the evaporation pan provided. It will be near or under the condensor fan.
Hope this helps.

Freezer has lost its suction & no longer freezing!


Depending on the age of the unit it does take a 134a freon charge or 12 or 22. when fully charged unit should cool properly. need to check door seal for suction issue. the unit does need a good charge to cool. it could also be a restricted sealed system issue.

Upright freezer door inside developing ice


The door seal is at fault. Regardless of the small tear it is not sealing well.
Take a dollar bill and close it in the door. Then pull on the bill to feel resistance.
You will find it pulls easily in some place. That is where your air leak is that is causing the condensation.
Do this about every 6 inches all the way around the seal.

Got another question about a freezer


I have seen freezer stop working because the owner pulled it out to clean behind it and pushed it back into place too far. This "Chocked" the air flow around the condenser and caused the failure. Be sure condenser is clean and air can circulate. Older units have coils up the back and newer ones have them underneath and utilize a fan. You can use a vacuum on the the underneath ones. Be sure fan runs under there.
