Panasonic fridgefreezer NR- B32 SW2 Can not open door due to

Panasonic fridgefreezer NR- B32 SW2
Can not open door due to ice forming in the base of freezer.

Hi, Im sorry to hear that.

In this case the best thing to do is unplug the unit for a while until you can get the door open.

Then you will need to remove the contents and open the doors and defrost for 24 hours. Make sure to put down a few towels to catch the water fro the ice formation in the bottom of your freezer.

Once thats done, you can re start the unit. Usually this is caused by a clog in the drain line behind the rear wall of the freezer.

But its likley only ice in the tube. SO that should solve the problem ;-)

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

Please rate my service kindly.

Also it is the only way I am credited for my time and expertise with you.

Thanks Michael. We had previously defrosted the unit before going on holiday and on returning there was no icing up for about two weeks. Then the problem started again so we will try again and see if things improve.

Thank you,

Please let me know if it happens again. I have seen stranger things in my career lol

We will get to the bottom of this issue;-)
