There is Ice or Frost In The Refrigerator or Freezer.

[Overview]

Cooling air must be circulated inside of each compartment in any time. If this cool air meets hot or humid air out of compartment, it makes frost at the point of contact.

[Related Symptom]

Weak Cooling system

[Cause]

1. Door Not Closed Properly

2. Improper Ventilation of cool air

3. Ice Flap (Cover Ice Route) is open

[Solution]

Freezer Compartment

Ice or frost in the freezer can be caused by one of Three issues:

    • An improperly closed door.

    • Improper ventilation of the freezer.

    • The Ice Maker Flap.

1. Door Not Closed Properly

    • Make sure that the freezer door closes completely.

    • Make sure that the door gaskets are attached properly to the door and that they are clean. Also, make sure they are sealing properly and are not torn or split. 

    Take a dollar bill and close it in the door. If you can pull the dollar out with no resistance, the seals should be replaced.

    • Make sure there are no packages resting against the rear wall of the freezer.

2. Improper Ventilation

    • Make sure there are no packages resting against the rear wall of the freezer.

    • Space your food out as much as possible to improve ventilation.

    • Make sure that the air vent in the freezer is not blocked.

3. The Ice Maker Flap (Cover Ice Route)

If the flap on the ice dispenser is not closing properly, it allows warm air to enter the freezer compartment, and causes frost build up in the freezer. To check the flap, open the left side door, and look at the black flap inside the ice chute. If the flap is in the correct position, it is flush against the housing. If the flap is not flush with the housing, check for ice, or any other debris, that may be keeping the flap open.

Refrigerator Compartment

If your refrigerator is freezing food, the temperature is set too low. Raise the temperature a few degrees to fix the problem.

If your refrigerator temperature is too high, condensation may build up and freeze on the bottom of the refrigerator. Lower the temperature a few degrees to fix the problem.

[Important Reminders]

If your house has a high humidity level, simply opening and closing the freezer door will cause some amount of frost to accumulate. The freezer has a built in heater to melt this build-up.
