First, call Restaurant Parts and More (1-888-814-1110) and ask for Rick. He can help either get you the seal or have one custom made. I've used him for 15 years with great success. If you have model and serial, it would be even greater.
He can do the same for the heaters that go around the door frame.

Don't understand which "Line" you are referring to. In alot of cases, the drain on the drain pan is clogged. This causes water to overflow onto the floor. The drain can be clogged from trash getting into it. Most of the time, the drain heater is either not working or not ever installed. Water refreezes in drain line and causes the overflowing problem.
If this does not help, let me know. Clear up the "Line "question and maybe I can go alittle deeper into this.

Frezzer keeps icein over


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

There are several things to check:

1.) Door Gasket -Take a piece of paper. With the freezer door closed run the paper around the gasket. If you can do that, then you are not getting a good seal.
Repair: Clean the freezer door gasket with soap and water. While still wet, take a hair dryer and a spatula, going around the gasket, heat the gasket while pulling the gasket out to expand it.
Note: This only solves the problem if there is frost in the front area of your freezer.

2.) Freezer fan not working - In some cases, The freezer fan helps to prevent warm air from getting into the freezer.

3.) Food Storage - Make sure you do not overload the freezer, and that the food product is inside the bounds of the racks.

4.) Fresh Food Section Air Vent Wide Open - This is your probable cause: Heat goes to Cold like a magnet. When you open your fresh food section door and then close it you are forcing warm air up the vent that goes to the freezer. You probably have a broken air vent assembly.

Check the rubber seal inside/around the door. I bet you have a tear or piece of seal that isn't making a solid fit and it's allowing (warm) room air into you freezer. This moist room air will either turn to water droplets and builds up to enough droplets to form puddles in the bottom of the freezer, or it freezes into a blob of ice around the door seal and this allows warm room air into the freezer. Otherwise you need an Appliance Tech to check the Freon refrigerant level. Most times its the door seal causing this problem.

Why is my freezer door leaking air?


Check the door is sealing all around the rim. The seal may need replacing, or the door may need adjusting.

How can I replace the seal for the lid?


no need to replace unless damaged. You should be able to pull the seal off the door and place it in the dishwasher or use the solution described below in a sink to clean it. If removal is impracticable then the recommended cleaner (on the door) is a spoonful of regular dish washing liquid + 1/4 C of Lysol (the real stuff- brown smells horrible) and a quart of very warn water....add to this about 1/8 C of household bleach..clean with a sponge/ rag and rinse. This will clean and totally disinfect the door/ seal. Also, remember that unless you have a true allergy to mold there is no proof that it will harm you, its around us every day. Ever taken a walk in the woods at daybreak or sunset- look at the specs flying around- they're mold at max!

Your door seal is not sealing properly . Check and use a hairdryer to soften the seal and the magnetic portion should seal itself against the cabinet .

My walk-in freezer is developing stilagtights (ice castles) on the floor and cieling in front of the evaporator coil.MY drain pan is not plugged when I pour water down it.


You should check for air leaks around the door gasket or any other openings in the compartment such as where pipes or wiring is going through the wall. It sounds like a moisture problem from moisture being drawn into the compartment pass door gaskets or access holes.

GE Upright Freezer problem/door


The door seal is damaged or the hindge alignment have allowed the warm air to enter and the cold air to leak out the of the freezer. Look and feel around the door for the cold air and check the top and bottom hinges to make sure they haven't become loose. Look for tears also around the seal because this will do the same thing. Let me know what you find. JT

ca. 2010 GE fridge with Samsung ice maker. I have to hold the reset on the icemaker every few days to keep making ice or it quits. What's the fix? When it works, there's a loud popping every 3 seconds for about 2 minutes, then a few minutes later ice harvests into the bin. With my hand against the outside of the fridge next to the icemaker, I can literally feel each pop. I originally thought it was the ice release heater failing that caused cubes to pop loose hard, but I couldn't find anything wrong electronically when I took things apart and examined the board and connections in the icemaker. I may have missed something mechanically that's causing some part to flex and then suddenly give against the wall inside every 3 secs as the clock cycles through the beginning of a harvest? What might that be? But after reassembly it now has the added feature of harvesting a few times and then stopping altogether. We run flat out of ice if I forget to press and hold the reset button for 10 secs. every few days. Apparently the clock is cycling incompletely or something now. Could a cog be missing/broken/out of alignment in the clockworks, such that when it gets so far along it slips, but can be reset? How about the lift arm? Could it be out of position inside such that something it's connected to isn't properly repositioning when the arm drops back down? Or could all of this be related to a faulty control board elsewhere in the fridge?
