Defrost the unit for two days with the doors open...I know you're going to lose your contents. You may have ice on the coils internally. Next make sure you've cleaned the external coils under the unit. Leaving liquids open inside the unit or setting it colder than required will both cause issues like the ones you've got. Also, be sure all air vents inside the unit are unblocked and the door closes tightly all around.

SOURCE: ice collects in bottom of freezer

ive just actually just fixed our fridge freezer, pull all draws out take out two screw on back panel then remove then pull out the other panel with fan connected.
At the bottom under the coil you will see a shelf all this will be ice pour boiling water on ice and remove when it starts breaking up, you will then see a small hole on the left of the shelf pour hot water down every minute or so and if you have a syringe take excess water out before pouring more boiling water down after a while the hole will a clear up and the ice gone.

SOURCE: Build up of ice on bottom of LG fridge freezer

Is it supposed to be self defrost? If so then either underneath the freezer needs to be cleaned. coils if dirty will cause freezer not to work well. I that doesn't help you might have a freon leak which would make it under charged and would ice up like that.

You have a solenoid switch which switches the dispenser back and forth from crushed to cube. It could be stuck or not working or the parts connecting it could be disconnected or broken. You will have to observe to see if any parts are moving and if any noise is coming from the solenoid

Refrigerator model GR-B247WV Bottom of freezer compartment has frozen water recently. Could it be the heating element or the computer chip is faulty? Is there a number I could call for repair? Thank...


Hi,

You may have a blocked drain. Therefore when your fridge goes into a defrost cycle, the melted water usually travels down a drain hole and collects in a container above your compressor, which eventually evaporates.

If the drain gets blocked, the water collects at the bottom of freezer and freezes.

If the defrost mechanism fails you will have ice and frost building up all along the back plate of the freezer, not just the bottom.

How to replace seal on the freezer door


Hello,


  • Take food out of freezer
  • Take rack out
  • Take out any ice cube racks
  • Remove ice accumulated in the bottom of the compartment (I used a hammer)
  • Unscrew the back panel inside the freezer compartment
  • You won't be able to remove the panel right away because of the plastic duct is mated to the bottom of the freezer compartment.
  • Lift the panel up to unmate the duct and the bottom, and pull the top end of the panel toward you. Don't pull too hard because there are electrical wires attached to it.
  • Disconnect the wires and remove the panel / duct.
  • I saw an accumulation of ice and a hole.
  • Remove whatever ice you can.
  • Pour boiling water into the hole to remove ice inside the hole.
  • You'll know you've succeeded when water runs easily down the hole.
  • The water should collect underneath the fridge - there is a grille that you can remove (Just pull) and you'll see a pan where the water is collecting.
I just did this so I'm not sure if it will happen again ...

Good luck

Water on floor


I had this problem with our 2 door frost-free LG fridge (model GR-B207EC). Perhaps you also notice a regular ice buildup in the bottom of the freezer compartment?

My solution was to switch off the fridge and unplug it from the wall, unload the freezer compartment and remove the white plastic back panel inside the freezer compartment. The panel has arrows marked around the edges where the catches are that hold it in place. Carefully flex out the panel at the catches using a large flat blade screwdriver if necessary. Ice buildup can make removal of this panel more difficult.

Behind this back panel is a condenser, under which is a silver tray, which is designed to catch the drops which fall from the condensor (this is the 'frost-free' part of the fridge). I found mine solidly frozen with ice and used a low-heat setting on a heat gun to melt the ice. In the absence of a heat gun a hair dryer will work fine, but don't melt the plastic components of the fridge. (It is also unadvisable to chip away ice with a knife of other sharp implement as you can easily slip and damage yourself or the fridge).

After fully defrosting the tray (this will take some time), including the drain hole in the base of the tray (pour a small amount of warm water in the tray and make sure it drains readily), reassemble the fridge components and restock your fridge. Remember to plug it back in and switch it on.

No more water leaks.

As an alternative to this fix ... if you have the luxury of being able to transfer the contents of your fridge to another fridge and not have to use the leaky one for a while ... empty the fridge and freezer, unplug it from the wall, leave the doors open for a week in a warm location. I didn't use this method but I reckon a week would be long enough to defrost the ice buildup behind the back panel of the freezer and allow the water to drain, yielding the same result.

Water collects in bottom of freezer, then it runs out in the floor after ice has filled the bottom of the freezer. I have a frig with water and ice in the door. The ice maker is working fine, but the water...


there is a chance that the bottle that holds your water in the fridge compartment.could be broken or a line maybe disconnected this would cause water to leak in the fridge compartment.this bottle is designed to hold the water and get it cold before dispensing to your glass

Ice collects in bottom of freezer


Heya Johnpc,
The best way to check the fan is to open the door and to push in the door switch wait about thirty seconds and you should be able to hear the fan run. If you cannot hear the fan the chances are you should call domestic refrigeration tech out.

Another thing that also makes water gather in the freezer is the freezer door seal is old and not sealing correctly.

Is the freezer working all right still?

Lg fridge freezer model gr-s352gca fault


Buy another brand. LG are cheap and nasty when it comes to whitegoods even though the price tag is still up there. I have done nothing but research for my next fridge and i might go with the same brand as i have had for the past ten years and have not had a single problem.(it is definately not a LG of Samsung or one of these other brands that have all the advertising and have only been around for a little while)
