Why do I have frost in my freezer?
Refrigerator: Frost buildup in freezer. If frost is building up in the freezer, check first for a break in the door gasket that could be letting in warm, moist air. If the gasket seems sound, a malfunction somewhere in the automatic defrost system could be the culprit.
A common cause for ice buildup is a faulty door seal. If a refrigerator has a bad door seal, the outside air will pass into the fridge and cause the ice build up problem you are experiencing. If the ice build up is only happening in the freezer, the freezer drain is probably clogged.
- Freezer burn is a condition in which frozen food has been exposed to air. When food is frozen, water molecules in the food turn into ice crystals. These ice crystals then migrate to the surface of the food, which is why you often see mounds of ice on your frozen foods.
- If you are storing the fruit and vegetables in the upper fruit and vegetable drawer, move them to the lower drawer. To keep food from freezing in your refrigerator, try the following: Set the refrigerator control to a warmer setting. The ideal temperature setting for your refrigerator is 38º F (3º C).
- Defrosting a Frost Free Fridge and Freezer
- Remove everything from both the refrigerator and freezer.
- Unplug the appliance and pull it away from the wall.
- Open the fridge door(s) and freezer door/drawer for at least 8 hours.
- Clean up the water inside the fridge and freezer and on the floor.
Problem: It's leaking water. Cause: A blocked defrost drain is one of the most common causes of water leakage. This happens when food particles or other debris clogs up the drain hose, which can lead to ice buildup and, eventually, water leaking out of the freezer and refrigerator.
- Filter Indicator Reset. Reset the filter indicator light by using one of the 5 options, depending on the model: 1 Press and hold the Alarm button for 3 - 5 seconds. 2 Press and hold the Ice/Water button for 3 - 5 seconds.
- How Often to Change Your Filter. We recommend replacing the Sediment Pre-Filter every 3 to 6 months. You can replace this filter sooner if you notice the water flow is slowing down or the water color becomes darker.
- The membrane should be changed every 2 years or if you notice a significant drop in water passing through the reverse osmosis system. In your case the GXRM10G uses the FX12P pre and post filters which should be changed every 6 months and the fx12m membrane which should be changed every 2 years.
