Question and Answers

Q:

Freezer defrost problem.

A:

Interesting question.  Edward, how long does it take for the refrigerator to return to normal.  I was unable to locate a model specific answer for you.  I've located a link that is the is not quite like the symptoms you're experiencing but I can find no other link that would fit better.  This link simply discusses the issue in a general way. Click here to view the link.  Though this link discusses a different model number,
the mechanics are likely going to be very similar.  Keep in mind that an expert will be
responding within the next two business days if not sooner and will likely offer you more information and
instruction. I hope this information will be helpful and have a nice day.

Thank you for choosing ManageMyLife.com. I understand how important it is for the freezer to reach the appropriate temperature. Most model will definitely take quite a few hours to get back into the appropriate temperature especially if the door is constantly opened during the re-freeze. Here are some checks you can do to make sure the freezer is working properly.
Test the refrigerator gasket with the power connected, if desired. Open the door and place a piece of paper or dollar in the door gap, between the metal and the rubber gasket lining the inside of the door. Close the door and tug at the paper. Resistance from the door seal indicates no gap or leak in that portion of the door. Repeat the testing procedure all along the perimeter of the door. Any areas where the paper easily pulls out from the door have a leak or gap in the gasket.
Check the drain tube to see if it is frozen. Below are steps to take for uncloging a frozen drain tube.

1. Unplug your refrigerator and pull it 2 or 3 feet away from the wall. Take all your frozen foods out of the freezer and store them in a cooler while you unclog the drain tube.

2. Find the freezer defrost drain tube on the back of your unit. Consult the owner's manual for your freezer to be sure of the location.

3. A hairdryer helps remove freezer drain clogs. Melt visible ice on the inside or outside of the tube with a hairdryer set to the "Low" setting. Hold the dryer 12 inches away from the surface until you melt all visible ice. Dry the back surface and drain tube with a clean cloth.

4. Squirt de-clogging and cleanser mixture into the drain tube with a turkey baster. Mix 1/2 cup bleach and 1/2 cup warm water in a bowl. Draw some of the bleach solution into a turkey baster. Squirt the warm bleach mixture into the drain tube to melt away any further clogs and clean the tube at the same time.
