Question about Kenmore 18.3 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator w/Through-the-Door Water Dispenser
On the underside of my freezer door is a black disk about the size of a quarter. It sticks out a little bit. It has torn on one side and a styrofoam looking substance is sticking out and will flake off if poked. Sears says it's nothing to worry about, but it looks to me like whatever is inside the freezer door is trying to get out.
Is this the insulation coming out? Is it toxic and will it get on my food and cause me to be rushed to the hospital to have my stomach pumped?
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks! l
That 'black disk' was probably a plug. Many manufacturers have extra features that if aren't used, get wired into the appliance anyway and have a plug placed over the opening. What you were seeing is foam insulation and as long as you don't consume it.. you should be OK.. A small piece of duct tape over the opening might make you feel better about it... You may have to thaw the freezer out and clean the area a bit for the tape to adhere properly... Hope that helps !

First make sure the door seals are sealing correctly and not letting the air in to the compartment because this is the only source of water.
Check that there is no ice buid-up around the seals.
