Open Question

HOW DO I PREVENT THE FREEZER DOOR SLIDERS FROM FREEZING UP UP?

When I went to open the freezer door it was stuck solid. Had to pull very ******* handle to get it open. Compartment was full of ice which I removed. Then reattached door to sliders and returned to closed position. Left it for about an hour and tried to open. Door frozen shut again. Removed, dried off, and replaced the sliders and returned drawer to closed position. Repeated this process several times with same results. So have turned off freezer unit and need some suggestions re how to stop the freezing up.

SOURCE: Ice build up in freezer

Defrost system failure.

Defrost timer, heater, therma disk, any one could be bad.

You could manually defrost and this would get the Ref back to working for a couple of days before it iced up again. Remember there is a lot of ice build up on the cooling coils in the freezer that you can't see so, a little extra time with a hair dryer is needed to do a complete manual defrost.

SOURCE: Amana ARB2117BW - Bottom Freezer Door Won't Stay Sealed

This problem was posted in the wrong section. My model didn't have it's own, so its in ABB1927DE Bottom Freezer Refrigerator - perhaps you could create a section for it.

As it turns out, I looked more closely at the baskets inside. We had noticed that if the top basket was slid all the way forward when we closed the door that it would close better. So I looked to see if they or the slides were out of alignment. They seemed ok, but then I saw that the way the bottom basket was hanging didn't seem right - it was not quite nestled into it's retainer slot. I took the baskets out and turned the bottom one around. It fit perfectly into it's retainer slot. I then replaced the top one (it was already in correctly) and closed the door. It sealed correctly the first time. I tested it several times after that and it sealed tightly. Closing the top door did not make it unseal as it had done before.

SOURCE: AMANA ARB2257C ice maker makes noise/doesn't eject cubes into bin

Hi: First off make sure the fridge is level. Is It too high in front? Making the rear of the icemaker overflow and jam? Also make sure the freezer section is a zero degrees, not just frozen. Ice cream should be rock hard. I hope this helps you avoid calling service. Thank You, Jeff

Before the ice cubes can drop into the bucket, they freeze into a giant block of ice. How do I prevent this.


Either the heater that releases the cubes is not working, or water valve is staying open too long. Replace ice maker.

What causes ice in ice container to freeze into a solid block?


The water control valve has trash in it or is otherwise malfunctioning and isn't shutting off water completely when filling the ice maker. Water then leaks over into ice bucket and freezes solid.

My Kenmore 795-71032.010 bottom freezer will only open half way. There was ice on one side and I used a hairdryer to melt the ice but now the door will only open half-way.


Warm moist air was being pulled into the freezer, since it wasn't closed all, of the way. That might have caused the evap. coils to freeze-up. A hair dryer didn't defrost the evaporator coils.

As far as, the rack slide, you'll have to repair that, or something is in the way, preventing it to travel all the way back. If there is an air leak in the door gasket, moist air will be pulled inside, and cause problems. Good luck.

Water freezing in the bottom of freezer and leaking out on the floor from underneath


Defrost drain hole plugged - probably with ice. Defrost fridge, verify that you don't have something like a green bean stuck in the drain line. A piece of uninsulated solid copper wire wrapped around the defrost heater and run down that hole about 1/2" past the opening - MAKE SURE IT DOESN'T TOUCH THE TUBING OR CABINET LINER will prevent future freeze-ups.

My refrigerator freezes my food solid


There are vents that allow the cold air to flow from the freezer to the fridge. If those vents become clogged with ice or fail mechanically, they can become stuck open or closed. The temp adjustment should move the damper in the vents. But if they are frozen open, then the fridge will become too cold.

I have a Samsung SR-S2028CSS side by side Fridge Freezer with an icemaker water dispenser. The freezer is run at -23 degrees and the fridge at 2 degrees. Recently the ice, having been made in the icemaker,...


Are you sure about these temps C or F? At 2 deg on either scale, food would freeze! And -23 is unreachable.
Water running down the door sounds like a seal leak, check by putting a dollar bill between the seal and the frame. It should NOT pull out easily. Or there may be an air leak in the ice/water dispenser. Look at these parts closely. Or the "stile heater", a heater in the door frame to prevent condensation, may be broke. This is expensive to fix.

Refrigidare model # plhs267za


sounds like the air damper control for refrig is freezing in the open positon. not a really consumer freindly repair,(dropping side control panel checking damper door for ice build up, removing ice and applying a silicone lubricant(vasiline) to prevent further freezing of air damper motor. sounds easy enoug but that panel is real tricky to drop and mount back in.

Whirlpool fridge freezer


trying to open door?? does it feel as if top wants to open ad bottom of door is being stuck shut? or mabye a package of frozen food has shifted of a shelf and is holding the door shut, if so brute force will solve that one.if it feels like held at bottom sounds as if youmight have a clogged defrost drain tube.drain water backing up onto freezer plor and holding door shut. even then forcing door open is only way then removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wirearound the heater( black calrod heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now everythime the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over.
