Beko Fridge Freezing Up At Back – How to Fix

To fix freezing at the back wall of a Beko fridge, check and fix the following:

1. Thermostat Setting

Setting the thermostat too low means the fridge air can absorb just a little moisture, leaving much more moisture unabsorbed. This excess moisture condenses on the rear wall because it is the coldest part of the fridge. Eventually, it freezes.

Additionally, setting the thermostat too low will make the compressor run more. This will leave the fridge colder than it needs to be and the moisture on the rear wall will freeze faster.

Therefore, increase the setting of the thermostat to the right point so that the fridge doesn’t freeze too quickly.

2. Ambient Temperature

Hot temperature makes the compressor run much more than it should run in order to keep the fridge cold. From time to time, ice will form at the back of the fridge due to the constant running of the compressor.

Keep the fridge in a room or space where the temperature is not hot and where there is no heat source hitting it directly.

3. Door Seal

Air outside absorbs more moisture than air inside the fridge because it is warm. If there is even a tiny crack in the seal of the fridge door, the warm air will seep into the fridge and condense on the back wall. With time, if this keeps happening, the condensation will form ice on the wall.

Check the seal with a dollar bill. Close the door on the bill and try pulling it out without opening the door. If you can, the seal is bad and should be replaced.

In addition to the above, ensure the door of the fridge is not opened too frequently. This is to keep the warm air and moisture from creeping into the fridge.

4. Foodstuff

Hot food or wet food such as vegetables, meat and fruit carries a lot of moisture. The moisture will settle as condensate on the back wall of the fridge and eventually freeze. Let food cool before storing it in the fridge. Additionally, allow wet food to drip before putting it in the unit.

Why Does My Beko Fridge Keep Freezing Up?

Your Beko fridge keeps freezing up for the following reasons:

1. Frequent Door Opening

Warm air carries moisture better than cold air. If you open the fridge door too often, the warm air will carry moisture into the fridge. The moisture will condense and freeze as it keeps collecting. Keep from opening the door of the fridge too often to avoid this.

2. Weak or Broken Door Seal

Even the tiniest hole or crack in the door seal or gasket will let in warm moist air. The moisture will condense in the fridge and form ice over time. Check the door seal for weakness, cracks or holes. Change the seal if there is any.

3. Temperature Too Low

If the temperature of the fridge is set too low, the fridge will get cold too quickly. With time, it will form too much ice. Set the temperature to 50C to get the right temperature. And maintain this setting to keep your Beko fridge from freezing.

Beko Freezer Keeps Freezing Up – What to Do

In the event your Beko freezer keeps freezing up, do the following:

1. Store the Right Amount of Food

Leaving the freezer too empty or too full will make it freeze too quickly and easily. Keep the amount of food stored in it average so that air can pass freely and spread.

2. Don’t Open the Door Frequently

Opening the freezer door will let in outside air which usually carries a lot of moisture. When the moisture condenses, it will cause frost to form too quickly. Decide what you want from the freezer before opening the door so you don’t waste time there with the door open.

3. Set the Right Temperature

If the temperature is too low, the freezer will get cold too quickly. Set it at 00 Fahrenheit and not less. Additionally, keep the freezer in a room with a suitable temperature. If the room is too hot, the compressor will work extra hard to cool the freezer. This can lead to the freezer getting too cold or freezing more than it should.

4. Don’t Store Wet Food

Storing wet food will increase the moisture in the freezer. This can lead to condensation that builds frost over time. Let the food drip or dry before you store it in the freezer.

Reminder: Always turn the fridge off by unplugging it from the wall socket before commencing any repairs or diagnostic work. And contact a service agent or a repair technician for help if the repairs prove too difficult.
