I have a Daewoo American fridge freezer( FRS-U20DA in my French holiday home.It seems to have sprung a small leak from the freezer side. Any ideas ? Dave

Hi Dave, Sorry to hear that.

Is it water thats leaking?

Also is there any heavy frost on the rear wall inside the freezer?

Hi Michael. I was out last night so sorry about the delay. Yes there is a frozen drip line on the back and a thin ice film on the floor of the freezer. Dave

Hi Dave thanks for that.

What you need to do with this one is first defrost the unit completely. 24 hours with the doors open.

Once you do that the system may work fine, but we wont know until then.

It sounds like the defrost tube is clogged with ice so that is the only way to solve this problem. This does happen occasionally.

Also check your door seals to make sure they look like they make good contact all around, as that is a cause as well ;-)

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.

Please rate my service kindly.
