Ice collects in the bottom of the freezer not allowing door to shut


BA Baker... hello,

Ice collecting on the bottom of the freezer.. is not such a terrible thing...

(Probably means the defrost is working... (merely not EXITING)).

New refrig or unfamiliar refrig could cause deeper analysis...
but if ...

If this is not a new device... and has been happily tending to it's own needs (evaporating well) for a while (months would be re-assuring)...

Then you are MOST probably looking at a clogged evaporator drain... (usually easily fixed by negotiating "WARM" (not hot) through the bottom vents slots of your freezer section.

Looking under your Refrigerator/Freezer... or consulting your owners manual... Locate your defrost "catch" pan...

It should NOT be dusty...

(easily tested: clean paper in tray...
Still clean tomorrow = clogged drain (pan is watered daily).

Close inspection should reveal a tube descending into it.... This is where you will watch for your patiently applied doses of warm water to appear... (near immediate).

It may take several doses... because ice can also have formed over the drain... Be persistent... You will be proud.

Please comment me back... I really like REFRIGERATORS/Frzrs...
few appliances tend to themselves so well (adorable).

Icing up


I've just had a similar problem. I fixed it by removing the large panel on the back of the inside of the freezer. I found a large build up of ice at the bottom of the freezer which seems to have developed because the drain hole at the bottom of the freezer was blocked. I defrosted the ice, cleared the drain and now the freezer is working fine.

I have the same problem


Most probably defrost thermostat is defective. Unit never goes into defrost, ice forms on coil and in floor of freezer. After defrosting may work OK for a week or two but gradually gets warmer because ice is blocking ports where cool air gets to refrig. May also have water in refrig box. Can also be caused by defective defrost timer. This can also be caused by the drain hole being blocked by ice. You MUST remove all ice in drain under freezer coil. Use turkey baster to squirt hot water into hole and use hairdryer to defrost.

My Upright freezer Hotpoint Product code 755703


My FZA 84 regularly has to be defrosted as it overheats.We do this by taking off the back panel - as shown by the Hotpoint service man here in Dublin. We use lukewarm water or a hairdryer to defrost the buildup of ice. Why its building up is anyones guess.The repairman suggested we might be leaving the door open but we certainly aren't. I'm very disappointed with the product and I wouldn't be purchasing Hotpoint again.

Ice collecting under bottom of Freezer drawer/ seal round door intact/ food staying frozen/ Ice is cleared periodically but then builds up again


Your defrost drain hole is clogged. Look for the drain hole in the bottom rear of the freezer section. Turn off the fridge. Heat the drain hole with a hair dryer and clear the ice. Pour a quarter cup of bleach into the hole.

Icemaker


You might have a frozen line. Also and this seems more important to you its prob to cold, Trust me to cold of a refrig will cause hollow ice cubes first leading to a frozen line. Clean your coils, if you have another refrig empty out into that, unplug it leave doors open a couple days. If you can get to water line use a hair dryer from a distance defrost line, turn down freezer half knotch 1 full one at maximum. should fix issues, especially if filter already changed. If this all check prob a clogged line, not just frozen.
