The bottom of my Panasonic frig freezer NR-B29SG2 keeps forming ice making it difficult to open the bottom drawer


Confirm that the seal around the door is tight.
Confirm that the door is fully closed with no obstructions and the door alignment is correct.
Confirm no ice between door and seal.

Using a strip of paper test the tension between the door and seal around the door.

Check the freezer temperature.

It is possible that the defrost cycle has stopped operating. Usually the self defrost will prohibit proper cooling as the ice builds up on the cooling coils. Look for ice build up on the cooling coils/vent openings.

Check the freezer and refrigerator temperatures.

Hope this has helped?

I left the bottom freezer of my 650 ajar and when I returned the unit was producing a loud buzz - presumably a motor or fan. It turns off if I pull the shelf that contains the ice tray forward.


When the door is left open alot of condensation forms in your fridge which freezes and ices up. This build-up will gather around your evaporator fan which sometimes stops it from working or sometimes the fan blades scrape on the ice built up.

Best to manually defrost your freezer. Empty your freezer. Turn fridge off. Put a pot of boiling water and close the door. Leave for some time to defrost the ice. You can repeat this a couple of times to defrost the ice. Otherwise you can use a blow-dryer as well.

When you defrost, and turn your fridge back on. Everything should go back to normal.

Refrigeartor not chilling, freezer not freezing


If you have built up ice inside the freezer walls, and the defrost assembly isn't functioning, this could be the problem.

Defrost the unit! Take all the food out of the freezer side, remove shelves; remove inside back panel. If there is a lot of ice build up there, then your defrost assembly is not working or your refrigerator is not a frost free unit. Defrost either by leaving the freezer door open over night or you can speed the process up with a hair dryer. Once the ice build up is dealt with, you can plug the refrigerator back in and see if it will now freeze the freezer and chill the refrigerator. If it does, and you have a defrost assembly you need to order it and have it on hand when the ice builds up again.

I have an LG LFC21770 refrigerator and have noticed a build up of ice on the back wall of the freezer section. Yesterday, when I opened it to get some ice - the ice was frozen but had obviously melted...


If the freezer fails to defrost you get ice building up at the back of the freezer.
The defrost cycle relies in a thermistor transducer to detect the ice build up and to turn on the defrost cycle. The water usually then drips down to a tray under te fridge and then gets evaporated away.
Hopefully you only have a problem with the thermistor and not the defrost circuitry,
This is hard for a repair man to diagnose as when you call them out to your fridge it will be impossible to diagnose if the freezer is totally packed with ice.
And if you let it defrost totally it will be hard to diagnose as they may not be allowed to use freon to cool the transducer.'
So if you call someone in to check this you need to know if the ice build up will be a problem for them .
Youtube has several videos on this situation .

If the ice build up is only on the back panel of the freezer then you have a defrost problem. Most likely a defrost thermostat or control board/timer. If frost build up is around the walls of the freezer then warm air is getting into the freezer. Most likely cause of this would be gaps in or torn door gasket or door alignment. In some cases the door was left cracked open. If gasket and door alignment is ok remove the frost and see if it comes back.

Is your fan blowing in the freezer? Frost on the back wall of the freezer usually indicates a defrost problem... defrost themostate, heaters, take back panel off and check evap for frost build up and if your fan in working.
