Why does ice form on the bottom of my freezer ?

 

 

 

Ice will form on the bottom of the freezer compartment if the door is not properly closed and the cool air in the freezer is able to combine with the warm and humid air outside. To avoid the formation of ice please ensure that the cool air circulates in all compartments of your freezer. See the following suggestions:

  • If the doors do not close properly, make sure that the door seal on the edge of the door is attached properly. You can also check if the door seals properly. Close a sheet of paper in the door and pull it out. If you can pull it with no resistance then the doors do not close properly and the seals should be replaced.
  • If the flap of the freezer does not close properly then the warm air will enter the freezer and ice will form. Please ensure that the flap of the freezer is properly closed.
  • If the ventilation is blocked then the cool air will not circulate in the freezer. You should allow as much space between the items as possible for the cool air to circulate in all parts of the freezer.
