Hope you’re doing well today. Is it a lot of ice or just a little? Can you tell if the fan motor is running and circulating air?
Customer: replied 6 days ago.
It is the top 18" at the back and it develops about half and plus layer of soft ice.
The fan is running. Someone came out and refitted the door as there was a slight gap that did help a little.
Yeah, is the gasket making a good seal when the door is closed ?
Customer: replied 6 days ago.
it seems to be, you have to pull the door to open
If the door doesn’t close well, that can definitely cause excess ice.
If you’re good on that front, your issue is sounding more like one of the defrost components has gone bad
Customer: replied 6 days ago.
in that cases there anything I can do, or is it a case of getting an engineer, or is it time to consider replacing ?
I’d say at 15 years old it may be time to start considering replacing it. By the time you pay to have an engineer do the work to fix it, you’ll be invested probably about 40-50% of the value of a new one.
