The light in my freezer stays on when the door is closed.


I am curious how you know it is on unless you get inside. Some have magnet switches that will not cycle until the gasket seals.

Samsung refrigerator wont cool down


JUST ROTATE YOUR THERMOSTAT TO THE MAXIMUM AND WATCH IF STARTS COOLING THEN ADJUST THE THERMOSTAT TO YOUR REQUIRED LEVEL LATER ON. iN CASE IT DOES NOT START COOLING CHECK THE COMPRESSOR WHETHER IT IS WORKING, IN CASE YES THEN THERE IS NO GAS IN IT

There is probably an adjustment bolt for the door on the bottom underside you can get the door better.

Door will not stay shut, nothing is blocking it, no suction sound when it closes


1. Check entire condition of seal, even the bottom section and make sure it is not damaged.
2.Check the seal on the side of the door the hinges are on, they may be catching on the cabinet when closing, if so, use petrolium gel and rub it on the face of the seal, this will allow lubrication of the seal.
3.Also check that the seal has not swelled , if so, you can rectify this by using a hair dryer and starting on the sides the hinges are on, carefully heat the outside of the entire seal on that side, then close the door and hold firmly closed till cool, then move to the other side, top, then bottom doing the same process each time, this usually works a treat.

I hope that has been of some help for you and it works.

Yesterday the door on my 14 cubic ft upright freezer did not stay shut tight (it was ajar about 1 inch for about 6 hours). When I became aware I closed and locked the door to be sure it stayed shut, but...


it may take upto24 hours to settle to -18C,remember it has to cool right through the food in the freezer,as well as the walls.also if the food went soft, it is spoilt......cook meat asap then refreeze.

Left door open, closed next day, but only blowing cool air now


You will need to turn the unit off and let it completely unthaw. There is frost that builds up in the ducts and behind the panels when the door is left open that will cause the unit to not cool or circulate where needed.

Freezer runs continuosly, temp on control reading -8 degrees,unit never shuts off. also get alot of condensation on doors seems door heaters are not working.


Lets start with why it wont shut off. This seems most likey the thermostat. Turn down the t'stat to 1. if it doesnt shut the compressor off then recommend to replace t'stat. If you do defrost the whole freezer so that when you turn it back on it should take care of the condensation on doors

hope this was helpful

Freezer only freezing to 20 degrez


If the door was left ajar for any extended period frost has built up on the cooling coils. A complete defrost of the freezer should take care of the problem. Normally a frost free system will clear the ice from the cooling coil when the defrost time cycle happens. However frost may have built up in areas where the heaters can not readily remove it in a normal defrost cycle and shutting the unit down with the door open for about 24 hours should clear it out.

Amana fridge with freezer on bottom


Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items. If it still has a problem then it might be the compressor and you should probably replace the machine.

Chest freezer lid


Vacuum is caused by contraction of air. If your temperatures are being maintained the difference in how easily the lid opens and closes is not a point to worry about. If the lid wont shut after it is opened you do have a problem. If the lid is staying open at one corner try, with the lid open give it a slight twist pulling on the corner that is not closing fully. This action should spring the lid back to its original sealing position.
