The drain hose is blocked more than likely frozen,you have to defrost the freezer, a hair blower on low will help,put two bowls in your fridge on the top rack one on left one on the right put them towards the back to catch water as it drains,keep defrosting till you here water run down the tube into the pan under the fridge youll hear it.rember aim the hairblower to the back of the freezer on the bottom,or let it defrost by itself for a day,but its not done till you hear water hit the pan,not the water defrosting in the fridge

Water leaks from under the middle but not all the time maybe once or twice per month


condensation normally drains thru a tube at the bottom of the frig to a drip pan under the condenser coil (under the frig) .. the water normally just evaporates from the pan .. if there is too much moisture in the frig, that usually means a door is ajar (not closing completely) or the seal on the door is not sealing properly .. warm moist air from the room getting in will cause too much condensation .. the drip pan may overflow ... you should check the drip pan for damage (clean the condenser while you are down there) .. also check the tube that carries the condensation (back bottom of the frig) .. it has a one way valve (lets water out only) that becomes stuck sometimes and needs cleaning.. if there is a large amount of moist things in the frig then that an cause the problem as well .. just put those things in plastic bags or containers to eliminate that problem ..

The Fridge of my Rangemaster SXS Fridge Freezer is freezing up


You probably have one of the following problems: A failed defrost system, meaning the defrost timer and/or element has gone out and your evaporator coil is frozen over; you are low on freon and this too will cause your evap coil to freeze over until the freon drops so low all cooling stops; . Unless you have gauges, a licence to buy freon and service valves (or a buddy with such) you are limited to what you can do. Here is my advice:1. unplug the frig and let it defrose over night, or unplug the frig and empty the freezer to remove the back cover to look for ice, a frozen fan and if so get your hair dryer out and melt the ice so you can test the fan and the defrost element (you will need a volt/ohm meter to do the element check. You can do it.

I have a frigidaire gallery series frig side by side with ice and water in door. The frig part won't stay cold. It also seems to take long time to make ice. The frig part works ok for awhile and then...


Check for two things. Look under the refrigerator and make sure the compressor fan is turning.

Second, check inside the freezer for proper operation of the fan that moves cool air throughout the freezer and refrigerator. If this fan is working, you can probably hear it. It should be behind an access plate in the freezer (near the top). Remove the plate and look at the fan. If it's not turning, you will have to replace the fan motor.

Frost occuring inside the frig on the top around mechanism


J,
Frost is indicative of an air leak (which means that the door seal is messed up).

Pardon me while I jump off into a thermodynamic primer here...

All of the "cold" is made in the freezer compartment. There's a fan in there that circulates this chilled air around... Only a portion of the chilled air is directed (ducted) to the fridge (beer) section.

Here's where the nifty thermodynamic whiz-bangs happen... Hot air balloons float why? Because they're lighter than the air surrounding it! (And a hot air balloon is "attracted" [like a magnet] to the coldest spot in the atmosphere) Ya know why? Because nature abhors a vacuum. Nature is always in a struggle to balance itself. So the cold air above actually pulls the balloon into the air and tries to stabilize its' temperature and equalize it with the surrounding environment (at that equalization moment, you wouldn't wanna be in the basket... know what I mean? Crash, Boom, Bang)

By "refrigerating", we are, by nature's rules, "breaking the law". We're actually pulling (removing) heat (calories) out of the food and transferring that heat to the outside of the fridge. Nifty, huh? Instead of applying "cold", we actually are removing heat!

Ok, OK... back to your issue. Frost is only water vapor that is suspended in air... When this warm air comes in contact with a "cold" surface it condenses OUT of the warm air and clings to the colder surface... think of a glass of iced tea on the patio, you know how the glass "sweats"? Imagine that your glass of tea is 22 degrees below zero Fahrenheit and now imagine what would happen to all the warm moisture laden air surrounding it. Yep, you're right... It would sweat out on the coldest surface and then quickly freeze/frost.

Now back to the balloon thing... (and nature). .. Cold air is "heavier" (more dense) than hot air, right? So if there's a leak (think of air as a fluid) of cold air [which flows toward the floor] there MUST be a replacement, right? (The whole "nature abhoring a vacuum" thing) Cold air flows out and warm (moisture laden) air fills the vacuum. Where does this warm air go?

Yep! It goes where the balloon goes! To the coldest spot it can find! (You're good at this!) Where's the coldest spot in the fridge, you ask? Well? It's at the top left, inside the cabinet. In the very back, you'll see the damper. It's used to adjust the amount of cold air flowing into the fridge compartment. When warm air hits this (the coldest part of the fridge) it immediately condenses and frosts over. This frost builds up a wall. This wall stops air from circulating. When air stops getting to the fridge, your eggs spoil, your mayonaisse stinks and your beer isn't worth squat.

Now for the "WHY" of it all... Could be several things allowing warm air into the fridge.

First thing to check is the rubber door gasket. Make sure it's seating properly all the way around the door. If it's not, the door may be warped... try to warp it back into shape. You have to do this physically.

Second, use some "Vaseline" and rub a thin layer of it onto the door gasket (the part that seals against the frame). Not only will this help make a good air-tight seal, it'll also help keep the door gasket supple and intact for the life of the refrigerator.

Take this knowledge and prosper... (only AFTER you've rated this soltion as "FixYa", though)
