Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

My Fridge was turned off for the winter while I was away. Unfortunately my plumber left filled ice cube trays in the freezer and shut the door. Water was also left in the fridge. When I returned this year there was some black mold in the fridge and freezer. My question is whether the mold could also be in the insulation parts of the fridge that I cannot reach. And if by ridding the available interior of the unit of this mold, the fridge is safe to use?

Well for mold problems i recommend cleaning out all compartments with water/bleach solution also a little bathroom cleaner will kill the mildew. i don't think it seeped to the insulation because the plastic liner in fridges are quite little thick. turn it on for some days and put one of those arm and hammer baking soda for fridges that will kill any residual odor. i consider it safe but its your call if you feel comfortable using it.

My Kenwood frost free Fridge Freezer KFC60SS15 has got quite a bit of ice on the drawers


Look at the door on the ice cube chute. If there is a cube stuck in it holding it open, ice will form on interior surfaces of the freezer. The door flapper must close tightly.

Unfortunately, Ice Makers are notoriously unreliable and most require more expertise than a handyman possesses. Most require replacement of one of the 4 main parts (usually not generic): drive motor, water solenoid, heating release element or bin full ice arm control switch.
A Certified Technician should be able to diagnose the problem and suggest a repair or replacement.

Hi Jeff, Had same problem. Turned out that the fill tube for the ice cube tray had filled with ice. I solved the problem by removing the tube from the back and letting warm water thaw the ice. Reinstalled and it works fine. You may also want to try a blow dryer while still in the freezer, but that may take some time. Good luck, Jim

Freezer Drawer Stuck


Our 550 bottom freezer drawer froze shut earlier this week and the motor made an unusual sound, like it was working too hard. Two of us eventually were able to open the drawer to find that it had frozen shut due to a leak which filled the ice tray solid and then adhered to the actual door, freezing it shut. We emptied the fridge and freezer, turned the control dials down to 0, but neither the motor nor the light would go off. We finally killed the circuit breaker to get the appliance to shut down. It's cleaned and defrosted and we noticed that the gasket has torn in three places, two on the fridge door and one on the freezer door. The freezer door could be from our tugging, but the refrigerator door is normal wear and tear. We filled the tears with some kind of putty and when it is dry we will start everything up again. This is not the first problem of this nature we have experienced with our subzero 550, but it is the most dramatic. Each previous time we have called a repair man out and he has been unable to fix it.
