    I have an older model GE Refrigerator with a bottom freezer. The open end of the freezer door seems to have dropped slightly, leaving a very small gap at the top that allows air in. Is there some way to readjust the hinge to lift the door slightly?

Frigidaire frost free upright freezer door corner dripping


Hello Yellow, thank you for your post!

I understand that your Frigidaire freezer is dripping water out of the corner of the door. It is possible that with your power going out the heat may have caused the gasket to warp. Do you see any frost build-up? The water that is dripping could be coming from condensation within the freezer. I would recommend checking the gasket to see if it is allowing warm air to enter the freezer.

I recommend that you visually inspect the door gasket for defects such as gaps or tears. You can also use a dollar bill to test the door gasket. Place a dollar bill in between the door and the body of the freezer. If the dollar bill pulls out with no to little resistance, you may need to replace the door gasket. A faulty door gasket can allow warm air to enter the compartment and cause frost to condensation or a leak. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

My whirpool freezer is ok but fridge not cool the fan is ok too


Check ur cold control thermostat, ur thermistors, ur air flow vent from freezer to fridge.( to make sure it opens and closes without any restrictions) On thermistors check for A close circuit and amount of ohms not just an Ohm reading. As per ur model. Most should atleast show 1200 ohms. Also Check door seals for leakage.
Evaporator coils
Poor cooling is often the result of a heavy frost build-up on the evaporator coils. You can't see these coils without removing a panel on the inside of your freezer. A sure sign that there is a build-up is the presence of any frost or ice build-up on the inside walls, floor, or ceiling of the freezer. Such a frost build-up usually indicates a problem in the self-defrosting system or damaged door gaskets.
If one of the components in the self-defrosting system fails, the refrigerator continues to try to cool. Eventually, though, so much frost builds up on the evaporator coils that the circulating fan can't draw air over the coils. There may still be a small amount of cooling because the coils are icy, but with no air flow over the coils, cooling in the refrigerator compartment is quite limited.

Why does my freezer located on the top of the gallery refrigerator have frost in it?


Check the freezer door gasket! Frost build up along the front edge of the freezer indicates a poor or broken seal. It could also be packaging or plastic bags on top of the freezer getting into the door opening and allowing moist room air into the freezer--make sure nothing on top of the refrigerator is getting into the door or jamming it open.

Crosley side by side freezer and fridge have ice in bottom


Hello - A dirty, cracked, worn or poorly fitted door gasket can allow warm air to enter the unit causing it to have to run longer to remove the warm air. Leaks in the door seal will cause freezer to run longer in order to maintain desired temperature. Cleaned the gasket, if it is too damage then it will need to be replace. You can check and see if the door seal is bad by, placing a dollar between the gasket and cabinet. Check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing properly. If nothing is stopping the door then replace gasket. Another possibility is an air leak and the cool air is causing the frost buildup. I suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately and have them check the coolant system.

Excessive frost- maybe door won't close well Builds up on to shelves the worst--could it be the rubber seal


First you must fully defrost your freezer. Frost simply attracts more frost. A build up of frost large enough to prevent the door closing properly will grow very rapidly indeed and waste a lot of electricity; it will also overload the compressor and can cause it to fail prematurely.

If the seal is damaged then it will allow moist air in and cause frost. If the seal has simply become unseated, then refitting it will prevent a recurrence.

Unless you have a frost-free model, then all freezers eventually need defrosting. You can slow the process by never opening the freezer door unnecessarily and also by never leaving it open any longer than necessary. Frost free models rely on air circulation via a fan to prevent frost build up. If the fan fails, or if the freezer is overloaded and so preventing air circulation then it will still frost up.

There is frost in the freezer. I thought it was frostless.


If you live in a humid environment its the water vapor in the air that is turning to frost in your freezer. Every time you open the door you are exchanging the cold dry air in your freezer for the humid air on the outside, and when you shut the door closed its this humid air that turns to frost inside the freezer. If its building up frost faster than normal you might have a door gasket that is leaking the cold air outside thus letting the humid air in, which is turning to frost. Check that your door is aligned properly and that the gasket is secure on the freezer door.

Hope this helps explain it.

One is where the surface of the items in the freezer have frost on them. It may be in one spot or evenly distributed. This is caused by excess room air getting into the freezer because of leaky door gasket which should seal snugly on a dollar bill inserted between the gasket. Frequent or prolonged door opening will also allow room air in. The higher moisture content in the air freezes on the surfaces of the food etc.

Icemaker making too much ice & Freezer frosting up.


Hi gpss,
It sounds like you are getting large amounts of warm moist air into the freezer. This can be caused by the door being left cracked open or the door seal not sealing properly. Check your door gaskets on both sides of the refrigerator. One other possible is the ice chute. If it is not closing all the way it will cause the same problem. You will get alot of frost forming in the freezer then it will melt when the refrigerator defrosts. Let me know if this helps, and if you have anymore questions.

If the ice build up is only on the back panel of the freezer then you have a defrost problem. Most likely a defrost thermostat or control board/timer. If frost build up is around the walls of the freezer then warm air is getting into the freezer. Most likely cause of this would be gaps in or torn door gasket or door alignment. In some cases the door was left cracked open. If gasket and door alignment is ok remove the frost and see if it comes back.
