Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Sub Zero model 550 bottom Freezer/ Refrigerator. The freezer section keeps freezing up and the drain off water runs down the inside across the rail frezing the door shut. No matter how many times we defrost this etc it seemes to just freeze right back up.


Answers :

Clarkk I have seen this many times. Your drain is clogged. If you pull the drawers out and pull the top cover you will see the evap. On the cover you will find a nozzle that goes to the drain. Use some compressed air and blow out the drain. In some cases there will be some silicone that will need replaced. You can get a food grade silcone sealant at a hardware store. Hope this helps.
My Subzero 550 did this: The right side of the freezer has a drain that was plugged with ice. When the freezer defrosts the water runs down the inside of the box and onto the drawer rails, where it then freezes. The drain tube is normally kept ice free by an aluminum strap wrapped around the copper defrost tube in the freezer heat exchanger, which runs down into the drain tube. Over time the copper defrost tube gets some surface corrosion and the aluminum strap doesn't get warm enough during the defrost cycle to melt ice in the tube. If you can get it apart, you can clean up the tub surface with steel wool, or buy the electric defroster for the drain tube to replace the aluminum strap.

My Samsung RS254SSH is just 2 years old and the temps on both sides are way off. The Freezer is set at -4 and stays around 8. The cold food side is 60. I have unplugged and reset the control panel many times. At first this would work and bring the temps down. Now nothing seems to work. Help!! The problem started the first year. We thought we had left the freezer door ajar and that caused the problem. The freezer side would shut off and the rebooting would help. It's happened about 5 times.

The freezer is frosting only on the right side of this bottom mount model. We defrosted it and cleaned it out, even it was emptied at one time and unplugged. Then it frosted again, in the same manner. We took out like a bucket of frost and ice build up. We checkd the seal, it seems ok. The door also seems to be shutting properly with no gaps.

The freezer (left side) is not closing all the way and I can't seem to figure out how to put the side detachable baskets back into the freezer door. any help? I made sure to clear out any food that would refrain the door from closing but when I do close it, the door wont hook shut. Like when I open and close the right door the freezer immediatley opens up.

I have a kenmore top freezer refrigerator model 253 about 1 1/2 years old. The fridge door sticks at the bottom of the door and the bottom of the fridge inside. There are scratches on the fridge bottom from the door rubbing on it. The door must be pushed shut every time. The fridge levelers have been adjusted to allow the door to swing closed on its own but will not shut completely because the door bottom contacts the fridge inside bottom. Is there some way to adjust the door? I do not see

Every time the top frig door is closed the bottom freezer door opens sometimes only 10 or 15mm so that the alarm does not detonate. The reverse also happens, ie top door opens when the bottom door is closed with only reasonable force. The seals appear tight and flexible with no gaps and the frig and freezer work fine for as long as the doors are closed! The frig is in excellent conditions - no dents etc. It is mounted fairly level, probably slightly tilted to the back a degree or two.

Fisher and Paykel E522BRXFD Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

The fridge door will not stay shut. It is noticeably lower than the freezer-side door. We think there may have been too many condiments in the door pulling it down. Also, on the freezer door, there is a black strip of magnet at the top on the inside and there isn't a black strip on the fridge door. We think this may be the problem too. Any suggestions on what may be the problem and what we could do to fix it?

My amana french-door fridge is giving me trouble.

I bought my Samsung french door refrigerator(RF267AERS) about one month ago(July, 2011). I noticed two days ago some frost and ice build up on the inside left side of the freezer drawer(no problem with the right side). I did not leave the freezer open for any extended time and gasket seal on the inside of door looks okay. It's a new refrigerator and I keep everything very clean in my home. Why is this happening? what's causing this and what is the proper solution? can you help?
