How do you make a freezer frost free?


Frost free means that the evaporator coil will not accumulate a thick layer of frost. It will not prevent frost from accumulating on the walls of the freezer. To slow down the amount of frost build up inside the freezer, do not keep the freezer door open for any longer than necessary. The freezer door seal may be defective. This would allow moisture in that would freeze on the inside walls. A heater with timed intervals to come on is one way for a frost free feature. But this will not work for frost build up on the inside walls of the freezer. It would only melt the frost and then it would refreeze again.

Tip

Simple thing you can do if the ref is not getting cold enough.


1. Defrost the freezer if you see ice on the inside wall.
This is a very common problem. Before you call a technician do this.
Defrost the freezer completely, and when you put the items back, make sure that the vent are not being blocked. The fan needs to circulate the air inside the freezer to keep it from having frost. Ice build up causes circulation problem which causes the ref and even the freezer to not get cold enough. Since the thermostat senses that it is not getting cold enough the refrigerator runs constantly and producing even more frost. Then the owner turns the refrigerator to coldest setting which actually do not help, or maybe make the problem even worse, all the while running up the electric bill as well. So there you go.

Been ok but now making loud whiring buzzing noises & freez box is icing upon containers


http://appliance911seabreeze.com/index.html
Look inside the freezer on the interior walls is there any frost or ice buildup on the walls of the freezer? If yes this sounds like ice build up behind the walls where you cannot see it in the freezer can you disconnect refrigerator remove the frozen food and place a bucket of hot water in there for about an hour with the freezer door shut and some towels on the bottom of the freezer to collect excess water before it runs out on your floor. provide the model number of your refrigerator and contact me and I'll tell you what we need to get

Fridge doesn't cool.


Hello, would you happen to have the make and model number of your refrigerator? In a refrigerator the freezer side of the refrigerator is the only side that produces the cold. If your refrigerator side is not cool but your freezer side is one of the first things that you would check would be to open the freezer door and look along the rear wall of the freezer to see if you notice any frost or ice build up on the rear wall. If you did this is termed as a defrost issue and message me back that you do have this situation and I will instruct you how to diagnose this to correct this situation. If you had no ice/frost build up on the rear wall you would next assure that the evaporator fan is blowing air inside of your freezer. If you felt no air blowing inside of the freezer you would then remove the rear wall on the inside rear of the freezer by unscrewing the 1/4" screws. This would give you access to the evaporator coil and above the coil would be the evaporator fan motor. I will await your reply to your finds as to if there is any ice/ frost and if the evaporator fan is blowing air inside of the freezer before further diagnosing.
Thank you
Rick

Runs constantly, freezer isn't cold enough, bottom of fridge is freezing


Do you have a heavy frost build up on the back wall of the freezer section toward the bottom. If you do your defrost heater has gone bad and will need to be changed. If you do not have frost build up the other problem would be with the evaporator fan or the main board. Let's hope for heavy frost build up.

Freezer thermostat stuck on A frost build up in


check the coils underneath and behind the freezer. the back on may be inside on the back wall behind a false panel. If so, disreguard this one. Take a vacuum cleaner and **** as much dust out as you can. This sounds like air flow restriction causing icing on the coils making the freezer go into defrost mode(for the evaporator coil). Also check to see if you hear the fan running when yoiu open the freezer door. It can be replaced if bad

Frost build up in freezer, makes a buzzing noise.


The problem was fixed by replacing the "bi-metal" device. The fan was making a buzzing noise because it was hitting a build up of ice on the coils and behind the whole back panel.
The bi-metal device was bad and "bulging" out and not performing like a switch. It kept the compressor going all the time and never allowed the freezer to go into the "defrost" mode.

Loud Buzzing Noise from Behind Freezer


Sounds like the freezer fan blade is hitting on a build up of ice or frost. You may have a defrost issue, or it may be a one time thing, like the door was open for a long time (object holding door partially open) or also check the ice dispenser duct door to make sure it is closing. Sometimes a chunk of ice hangs up in the ice shoot, allowing moist air to enter freezer, resulting in the extra frost / ice near the freezer fan. You might also check the door gaskets, especially the bottom side where sugary liquid spills might cause a gasket to tear. #2: Long run times: If cooling is good, don't worry. Older refrig's often ran less time, but used much more electricity than the newer refrig's, even though new one run longer. (Like having a 40 watt light bulb on for 20 hours a day uses less electricity than having a 100 watt bulb on for 10 hours a day)

New Refrigerator Past Warantee Not staying cold


is the fan in the freezer running? if not then the air cant circulate and nothing will cool properly. if is running, is there frost build up on the inside back wall of the freezer? if so you have a defrost problem. if no frost on the back and the fan is running, remove the back panel inside the freezer and make sure all of the silver coils have light frost on them. if only part of them are frosted get out your manual and look at the warranty section. then seal system may have a 5 year warranty. if it does then call sear for warranty service. if the coils only have partial frost and its not under a 5 year warranty buy a new frig. because repair will cost more than its worth

Check for frost build-up behind back wall in freezer. If there is a heavy frost build-up, it's not defrosting. This will restrict airflow to refigerator section and can stop fan. If fan is stuck again and it's not because of frost, replace evaporator fan motor.
