Ice Build-up in Freezer

If you have ice build up in your fridge, take a look at the door and the seal. A faulty door seal is a common cause for ice buildup. Loose door hinges can also be a culprit. Both of these issues allow outside air to come into your fridge or freezer casusing ice to form. Your door shold shut tight and with an even seal.

Refrigerator Leaks Water

A blocked defrost drain is one of the most common causes of water leaking from your refrigerator and is a good place to start troubleshooting. The small drain opening is easily blocked by food particles or ice, preventing water that accumulated during the defrost cycle from draining to the pan.

Freezes Food in Fridge

Most fridges have a cooling vent above or on the side of the top shelf. This is where most of the cold air comes from, so keeping food away from here may prevent freezing. Some side-by-side refrigerators (particularly older models) feature a vent that funnels cold air from the freezer into the fridge.

Bad Smell in Refrigerator

If your fridge stinks, there are a couple things to check. First of all, check the fridge for any old or spilled food. If after you give it a good cleaning it still smells bad, it may be the fridge itself. The inside of the fridge is plastic, and plastice absorbs odors. You can place baking soda, or coffee inside the fridge to help absorb and eliminate bad odors. You can also place a cotton swab saturated in vanilla to help with the odor.

Sub-Zero Refrigerator Won’t Turn Off, 

Condenser Fan Runs Continuously

Many times, when a condenser fan doesn’t shut off, it means your fridge is running non-stop.  However, with some designs, the condenser fan is hard-wired to run all the time.

Liberty Appliance has come up with a solution that fixes the issue with the older Sub-Zero refrigerators running their condenser fan all the time. Our Electrical Engineer has put together a simple redesign kit that only runs the condenser fan when it is needed.
