A:

I can understand your concern over wanting to know why your refrigerator runs too often. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I did some research on the unit. At this time, I was unable to locate information that would be helpful in regards to your question. Some of these questions that are asked will need specific research and will be answered by an expert with-in two business days but usually sooner.

Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern about the running time of the fridge. Based on the information listed, the fridge is running just fine. The temps are excellent. I know you are concerned about the power it uses but actually it does not use very much at all. If the unit is in a warm location, it could cause more running time. If it's in a controlled, cool location, unless there was some air leakage inside the cabinet, which would cause a moisture problem inside the cabinet, there really is nothing more you can do. You could make some adjustments with the controls but with the temps as good as listed, I would not recommend it. Now, if you are concerned that maybe the running time will cause a problem, it's actually better for a fridge to run more often, then to stop and start. This is because the hardest thing for a compressor to do is start. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will assist you further.

Thanks Scott. I wasn't sure if it was running more than it should and putting more stress on the compressor. When I touched the compressor, it was hot, but I could still put my hand on it for for than a few seconds. The unit is practically turning on for 10 minutes, then turning off for 10 minutes, on 10 minutes, and so on. It felt like the freezer was losing more cold air than the fridge (the fridge sometimes doesn't even lose much). I'll still go ahead and defrost it even though it might not do a thing, other than giving me a chance to clean the insides.

Thank you for your question. I understand your concern about the copper pipe. It does sound like this could be the water line that would connect to the fridge. However, I would strongly recommend having a plumber check this, to see for sure and also if it needs to be capped.

The moisture accumulation in the dispenser would indicate the chute door is not making a good seal. Usually replacing the mechanism # 2147167 will correct this problem. It's available at http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/2147167/0046/106?pathTaken=directMatch&filterPart=&pop=flush&prst=0&shdPart=2147167&sid=MMLxexpertxmerch . If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad assist you further.

Thanks for the answer. So it seems the chute door might need to be replaced. I think I should be able to do it myself after I order the part. But is there a step by step guide for my refrigerator model to install the chute door? It isn't obvious to me how to get to it.

Hi, Thanks for asking this question and let me answer it this way. Yes there seems to be indications of the chute door not closing all the way. The is what is causing the water condensation to drip down. I am provide you the pictures of the replacement of the chute door below. Let me know if the images are blurry as we are having sizing problems.

Thanks Bill. My fridge was slightly different but with some persistence, I got in. I unhooked the chute door and it looks perfectly fine and not damaged. From the inside, it seems like it closes tight enough. I turned off the lights in the room and shined a flashlight and no light went through the chute door. One thing I did notice was that there was a gap between the chute itself and the housing. That area looked dirty. So I put some weatherstripping (the stuff used for doors) in that gap. Too bad I can't know for sure if it helps until it gets warmer since that "sweating" happens then. If you have any more ideas, I'm still open for them.

A:

The gap between the chute and the housing will allow warm air to interact with the cold air inside of the freezer and you did right by sealing it off to stop the air migration. I would recommend a food grade silicone to seal the liner to the chute , but weather strips will certainly do the job.

Thanks for the recommendation. That gap is closer to the bottom edge of the door chute than the actual chute itself where ice falls down so that is my guess on what is going on. Plus, the dirtiness of that area suggests condensation possibly was there? The door chute itself seems clean and I'd expect that to be dirty due to non-use. We'll see if that fixes it when it gets warmer. It just came across my mind recently to finally look into it. Thanks again Bill! I appreciate the help and advice!
