SOURCE: Frost Developing in Freezer. Refrigerator not

Remove food use dials to turn freezer off.Clean freezer with hot water. Remove grill on front bottom and empty drain pan. If pan is full check your seals by pulling a dollar bill through the edge. If you have a gap clean seal with soapy water and a soft brush (dish brush) dry and check the seal again. If it is still very easy to pull the bill through apply a small amount of silicone grease from the plumbing section of the hardware store. You will save on electricity doing this and more if you pull the frigdge out and vaccuun the coils with a brush attachment for your vaccum. Don't forget to set the tempature dials to midway to turn the frige back on. Adjust after a few hours one od the dials could have been bumped to a very cold setting. If it freezes up again with the ice in a few days have a tech look at it because the defrost timer or defrost heater are bad.

SOURCE: frost developing inside the refrigerator on the bottom two shelves

Lets go over the way a sealed system works. There is a highj side and a low side. The low side is the side that passes through the evaporator coils inside the machine. Most times on the freezer side only, but sub zero has independent sealed systems for each side. Once it goes throug the evaporator its then condensed into a liquid state, the high side. This is also the hot side. Well, lower pressures in the low side would logically mean lower temperatures. So for the refridgerator not to freeze more freon is used on it to keep the low side pressure higher than normal, giving the cooling effect verses freezing. So, and here is the bad part, if you are seeing ice build up in the refridgerator side you have a freon leak some where allowing the pressure to be less than required to keep it above freezing. Call a service technician and depending on how the model, sub zero warranty is parts and labor covered for the first 6, and only parts from the 6-12 year.

Why would frost form in the freezer. French door style Frigidaire

Hey friend, I appreciate your post! Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire refrigerator is developing frost. I have identified that a few possibilities could be an issue with a water leak or air leak. You could perform the dollar bill test to assure that the gasket is secure around the appliance. Place the bill between the body of the freezer and close the door. Pull the dollar out, if it sticks the seal is good, but if the bill comes out easily the gasket needs to be changed. If the gasket appears to be in good condition I would recommend having a professional come out to diagnose and repair the refrigerator. -Matt

Hi, I have an Electrolux French door fridge. the freezer keeps developing ice over the back panel and then the freezer shuts down. I have turned the whole unit off for 36 hrs to defrost and then turn it...

You have a defrost issue causing frost/ice accumulation on the back panel of the freezer and stopping air flow across the low side.
When this happens the air flow is stopped to the fresh food and its gets warmer by the day until it is finally defrosted. What is your model #???

You can switch off the freezer from time to time to let the ice to melt.

Of course the too much accumulation of ice will affect the freezer.

Freezer developing frost while the fridge is warm

The frost build up is causing airflow blockage to fresh food compartment. Frost build up is either a sign of poor door seals, door left open, or bad defrost circuit. If after manually defrosting and after a few days the frost reappears, problem most likely is with the defrost circuit.

If you have some background of electrical circuits you may attempt repair yourself or call in a tech.

Defrost timer on your unit is near the light in the refrigerator. Recessed in a hole, turn with a flat blade screwdriver and advance timer until you hear a click and refrigerator turns off. After a few minutes the heater should come on and should hear moisture hitting heater in freezer compartment in back panel.

If heater is not coming on, could be a bad heater or defrost thermostat is bad. Both of the parts are accessed through the back panel inside of heater. Unplug and ohm check for continuity of heater & defrost thermostat. Heater is a cal rod unit, thermostat more likely to be the problem. part #5303918202
