If ice is forming at the bottom of your Samsung freezer, then you may start to think that your freezer will need a costly repair. However, there may be several reasons that ice is forming in your freezer, and you may be able to resolve the problem yourself. In this article, we share our top solutions for when ice starts to form at the bottom of your Samsung freezer.
Ice on Bottom of Freezer Fix! Samsung Fridge & Freezer:
Whenever you open your Samsung freezer door, warm air will rush into your freezer and begin to freeze. If you open your freezer too often, this can cause ice to build up in your freezer so try to avoid opening the freezer door when it’s not necessary. Ensure that the door is closing completely and that nothing is resting against the back wall of the freezer.
Check your freezer door seals
If your door seal doesn’t function properly, then this may also allow warm air to enter your freezer and freeze. Inspect the seal by running your hands gently around the edge of the door when it’s closed. If you can feel any cold air, then it’s likely that your fridge seal may need to be repaired or replaced. You can also check this by placing a sheet of paper in the door, then trying to pull it out. If it comes out with no resistance, then the door isn’t closing properly. If your door seal is broken or not working correctly, then it will need to be replaced or repaired.

Ensure that your freezer has enough ventilation
When your freezer has something covering the air vents, it will not have the ability to circulate air efficiently. Spreading out your food in the freezer will allow for the best circulation. Make sure that nothing is clocking the vents.
Avoid putting hot things in the freezer
Warm or hot food will change the humidity of your freezer. This may cause ice to form. Always make sure that food is completely cool before you put it in the freezer.
Check the ice maker flap
If your fridge – freezer has an ice maker, then the flap which stops cool air from exiting the freezer, and warm air from entering it, may need checking. Open the freezer and inspect the ice chute. There is a flap of material that should be flush against the housing, if it isn’t, remove any ice or debris that may be blocking it.
