Your seal sounds like it has been comprimized. check to see if the door seal is cracked or bent. There maybe something caught keeping the door from closing properly.

Frigidaire FFHS2311LWD has water pooling up and freezing bottom drawer and lower vent. Drain tube doesn't seem to be clogged. Water leaks onto floor some days.


the drain tube is most likely clogged. if the lower vent is freezing up there is no way to confirm because it is covered with ice. the reason water leaks onto the floor is, the refrigerator goes into defrost, frost melts and runs down the ice to the door. use a hair dryer to remove all ice, then use hot water to check drain. drain tube may be up to a foot long and may have a trap. you may have to go in through the back to gain access to the drain

My Freezer is about 11 years old. There is moisture coming from underneath the freezer and it is not keeping things cold enough. The freezer has a "Quick Freeze" setting that seems to work, once...


Usually if a refrigerator is holding water this means that the condensate from the freezer is not going down into the pan in the bottom, the water has to go somewhere so it ends up in your refrigerator. Find the drain line in the bottom and try some how to blow it out, if you can do this and clean the pan you should be ok.

My frost free freezer is building frost on the top part of the freezer between the door and the small divider, the seals appears ok with no gaps and it never shuts off 2006 model


there are two vent holes in the bottom of the door that need to be seal closed there has been air leaking in from these holes also the rear air diffuser should be solid and the vent holes in it coverd as well.then you nee to take one or two small washers and remove the front panel inside the freezer and put the washer between the panel so there is a small gap between the top of the freezer and the divider

Food defrosted in top of upright freezer


Hello,

Sounds like a defective defrost timer

If its a frost free upright freezer and the evaporator is frosting up with a snow like frost you have a defrost problem.. defrost thermostat, heaters, or trimmer



Dirty condenser coils are not the problem. It's most likely the defrost timer or defrost heater. The heater should come on about 3 times per day to melt the ice on the evaporator coils. If the defrost timer is not turning on the heater or the heater is burnt out, the coils will freeze up

Hope this helpout and Good luck

Won't freeze


Is the compressor running the whole time? If so may have a problem with a refridgerant leak....check the compressor in the rear of unit, feel if its hot....may be as simple as a relay.

Top & middle shelves COVERED with frost/ice, not middle


That is normal. The refrigerant runs through those shelves. They are the evaporator side of the unit.That is where the freezing effect comes from.
Check door seals for leaking air.
Keep door openings to a minimum.
Get in there and get out.
Those things will help prolong frost/ice buildup.

Ice build-up


Defected DEFROST HEATER can cause frost build up on the panel at the back of the freezer,and freezer stop cooling and ice frozen on unit so air could not flow to refrigerator side.Water will coming out caused of unbalanced freezing,and causing the flooding of water in the floor. You must change this defroster heater assembly so it will works normal again..


Hope this may help;

GE upright freezer


If this is a frost free model the fan could be bad. If not frost free it is probably low on freon. I don't recomment fixing this as you can never really trust the freezer again. Most of the time the leak can't be found and adding freon is only a temp solution.

Not freezing equally


Look for frost build up on back wall at bottom the auto defrost may be out. Check if the evaporator fan is blowing. If not it's stuck by something or needs replaced. If not The sealed system may have a leak or restiction causing it to only work closest to the evaporator i.e. the lower shelf.

all frost free freezers have to defrost the coils. there is a drain pan or cup in the bottom .. if it overflows or it can't drain out you will get puddles check the drain hose and drain cup or pan.. also check to see if you have ice inside the bottom of you freezer that would be a plugged or freezing drain hose..call for services if only 4 months old...
