I have a scotsman CM3 with aquaarmor ice machine. There is a constant trickle of water coming from each leg. Why is the happening???


Try taking off a side or back panel and see if there is frost building up. If frost is present, it could be low on refrigerant.
If there is condensation, it could be the insulation is saturated with water allowing thermal transfer to condense water out of the air.

Why is my subzero refrigerator (model 550 o/u) leaking?


Frost build up in that area is common, it is where the compressed gas leaves the compressor on its way to the evaporator inside the unit. The putty is put there on purpose during manufacture to insulate. Things aren't helped if you have a moist warm kitchen as the air condenses at that spot and freezes. If the fridge is in reasonable condition elsewhere and you don't wish to buy another there are a few things you can do. The area with the frost can be fixed with a can of expandable foam, or foam insulation cut to size to fully cover and insulate that area. Any condensation of the back can be fixed by covering with thin polystyrene sheet which comes in a roll. cut to size and stick with contact adhesive in blobs.

Your icemaker won't make any difference to the problem. Don't forget the water supply hose should be changed every 10 years.

If you do decide to change, one benefit is cheaper running costs. Improvements are being made all the time. Having said that, SubZero are a premium make.

Our top mount Kenmore fridge (Model # 253.77872509) is frosting up in the freezer section. Have turned off & defrosted the freezer on several occasions - it works for a few weeks but then begins...


Hi,


Normally when frost build up occurs it's because warmer outside air is getting into the freezer and the moisture from that warm air cools and condensates then freezes into frost or ice. You either have a bad seal like the other listing states try leveling the front a little higher than the back. Or you may have an issue with the defrost heater, thermostat or timer. Do you have a light that comes on from time to time? If so you have an auto defrost unit. If there is no light you may not have a frost free freezer which means you will have to remove the frost manually.

Outside unit iced up how do de-ice


As with the simplest way to thaw ice is with heat.

If you are running this unit in cooling and have ice outside, then you most likely have a freeze up inside as well. If this is a heat pump unit, then frost is normal during operation, however, ice build-up is an indication of a problem.

There are 2 effective ways to remove the ice build-up. The first is the simplest. Get your water hose and hose it down. Be sure to turn off the breakers to the unit and avoid spraying the electrical compartment. If you have the ability to hook the hose into a hot water line, then this process with be extremely fast. Let the unit sit for about 20 minutes to dry out and turn it back on.


The second can be a little more complicated if your not tech savoy. You can turn the system on in the cooling mode. This will make the outdoor coil the condenser section. Then, either block the airflow through the coils with an object, put an object over the fan to increase pressure, or if you can, disconnect the fan so it does not run. This method is essentially the same as a defrost cycle.

As with any failure, you can fix the problem at hand, but it will return. After you get past this, your real challenge will be determining what caused the freeze-up.


If you were running your system in cooling already, then you will need to ensure the system has de-iced on the inside as well.

My conditioner wont work. When i turn in on heat comes out.. What should i do>?


Do you have central air? If so put the fan on auto turn AC to lowest setting fan should come on in a minute if not go outside to your condenser unit check for ice building up on the compressor or any of the copper lines if it is you need refrigerant. If not you may need to blow out the condenser with an air compressor or shut off power hose it out. Also, look for broken wires. If all else fails call your local service Provider.

Condensation on the outside freezer area


condensation occurs on a surface which is colder than its surroundings.

The worst thing is the insulaion in the cabinet is water/ice logged. This would require removing the insulation and refoaming the cabinet.

You may be able to feel if the surface is cold.

I have seen a frig with voids in the insulation cause this problem- same cure- refoam.

Ice or frost building up in the bottom cooler where the light is


At first it sounds like it's short of refrigerant, have you or anyone else been chipping at ice with a sharp object like a knife or screwdriver? If the answer is yes then a new fridge is in order. You can verify this by checking the pipes that leave the compressor at the back, the small un-insulated pipe should start off hot and gradually cool down as it travels through the condenser on the outside of the fridge much like a radiator on a car. If it is mostly cold to the touch then refrigerant level is low and you have a leak somewhere on the system.

The fan should blow air into the heat sink. The warm air exits the heat sink at both ends. (It might work the other way, haven't tried it.)

When you have ice in your cooler, you know the thermo-electric element is working well--it's below freezing!

Ice builds up because there is water in the cooler. For example, in humid weather, you open the cooler, some humid air gets in, and the cooler temperature condenses the water. You have to empty this water, either by tipping the cooler, or using a sponge.

You can easily defrost the cooler by unplugging it for an hour or so. You know it's time to defrost when you hear the fan blades making a racket because they're hitting something--a thick buildup of ice.
