Freezers are supposed to be cold, but a build-up of ice in your freezer is not wanted. It can mean all the contents are covered in a layer of frost, which can damage the food. It can also cause your freezer to malfunction as the freezer cannot regulate its temperature if vents are covered over in a layer of ice.
If you have found an ice build-up in freezer compartments, don’t stress. We are here to offer advice and repairs for all kitchen appliances. We also offer regular maintenance to prevent future problems.
As well as our technical advice, there are some common reasons for an ice build-up in freezer compartments that you can tackle yourself.
If you accidentally leave your freezer door open, or if there is a problem with the door closing, then humidity from the air will enter your freezer and cold air escapes. The freezer then goes into overdrive mode to make the humid air cold and produces excess frost as a byproduct.
Make sure you always firmly shut the freezer door. Also, keep your freezer organized so that you spend less time rummaging around. We also advise you to check the seal on your freezer dor and that the hinges are aligned so no hot air is creeping in.
Storing hot items in your freezer such as leftovers that have not fully cooled down also introduces hot and humid air into this cold environment. Only put food in your freezer once it has cooled to room temperature.
