    Default surfe bubbling

    What causes the surface of fridge to bubble under the dispenser? I always thought moisture. Yoder loop Or letting water sit in the tray? This is a double wide. I do have to replace the df stat.

    What is best way to repair the textured surface?

    Have any pictures?
    I would think moisture or wet insulation would be the prime suspect for sure.

    I do have a pic. I will see if I can get one on here or send to you Jeff.

    Nice looking unit that just needs the df stat replaced. When I think of wet insulation not sure if I should repair it. No sign of mold or anything just bubbled up right below the dispenser. I could see where water may have gotten in it when I pulled the plastic dispenser housing back a little.

    Ok great.

    The doors are normally foam in place, but often see some added fiberglass style insulation around the dispenser.....this is normally easy to replace if it is wet.

    Looks like something was on the metal surface and they painted over it anyways....could have been dirt, oil and the paint is lifting off now. Yes we are seeing this more and more now

    Thanks. Guess it is just cometic then.

    Like I said, I need to replace the df stat on this fridge. I have the cover to the condenser removed. I let it run a little bit outside the shop a few days ago. How long should it take to get a good frost pattern?
    Not sure how long it ran. I went back inside for a little while then checked it. Pattern looked good but not all the way to the top when I looked.

    Looks like it to me yes.

    4-6 hours to get down to temp, I'd say 30-60 minutes for a good frost pattern.

    A little weak maybe.
