GE TFX22R refrig - top half warm

Today, 03:48 PM

This is a second refrigerator in the basement, and I'm hoping you are going to tell me this is probably a case of someone leaving the door open and getting some frost buildup.  The chances of someone leaving a door ajar are.... high.  :confused: 

 

Top half warm, bottom half normal (ish).   The frost pattern in the freezer side matches, too. It's thick (2" frost about 2/3 of the way up.  Then nothing.  (Can't find a way to post a picture!)   We've cleaned out the bulk of the ice, and are letting it defrost completlely.

 

Meanwhile, what do you think?  Does this sound like a frost buildup blocked airflow?  Or does it look more serious?

 

Dunno what's going on with the uploading of pictures.  I've done it in the past, but just can't find a way now.  ???

 

 


Broken glass oven front - can't find model number!

21 February 2014 - 08:55 PM

I have looked at the FAQ on finding the model number.  No joy.  Can't find a tag other than safety warnings.

 

It's very similar to this model:  http://www.sears.com...12000P?prdNo=10

 

 

A dropped pan manged to bounce off a knee and into the glass front.  Hilarity did NOT ensue!

 

 

The glass is cleaned up, but the question remains:  Can I buy and replace just the glass?  Or do I have to buy a door?  "I'll take Door Number 3, Monty!"

 

 

And if I can replace just the glass, does anybody know where (wink wink) I can buy it?

 

 

The glass should measure something like 29.5 x 21 inches.

 


LG HE front loaders - are they any good?

26 November 2013 - 09:00 PM

Well, our 2nd hand replacement for our dead Duet has started the leaking tub routine.  We need a bigger washer anyway - this conventional top loader has been painful to live with.

 

My wife has been researching reviews for a couple of days, and thinks she likes the LG HE front loaders.  Haven't settled on a size, yet.

 

 

What do the Samurai Experts think of the LGs?    Any feedback would be appreciated!

 

 

Any other brand recommendations?  Other than Whirlpool, of course!


Replacing a freezer door seal - any tips? How difficult is it?

22 October 2013 - 08:10 PM

I have a Whirlpool upright freezer (model # EV250NXTQ 00)  It's about a 25 cubic footer, if'n I remembers kerreckly.

 

The door seal has a significant gap on the bottom half of the opening side of the door, with predictable results.  :(

 

I think I might know a good place to order the seal :wink: , but how big a job is it?  Any tips to make it easy?  I can't even see how to start removing the old one, let alone installing the new one.


Moving a refrigerator - laying it down on its side?

01 September 2013 - 06:10 PM

This should be an easy one - I have just had to go buy a new-to-me refrigerator, and the loading & unloading process has the thing at about a 45 degree angle for a few minutes.  Maybe 5.

 

In days of yore I was always told that a refrigerator should be allowed to stand upright overnight after having been moved, to allow the oil in the compressor to drain back down where it belongs.

 

However, I dimly recall being told that this was not necessary with newer refrigerators.  This newish fridge is probably 5 years old or so.

 

 

So, does it need to be left upright for some lenght of time before being plugged in?  If so, what is that period of time?

 

Thanks!
