Ice build-up on the inside top of of freezer door
yea def , not normal, nor an acceptable amount of ice forming there( good pic). heres what i have been told to try and with good results
first make sure the door gasket is sealing all the way,(small gaps in ht emagnets at extreme corners) is common but with a little amount of "mortite"or "permagum can sometimes be insterted behind the corner of gasket to assist filling the void.
second a small amound of a white/clear silicone be applied to the outer perimtere of gasket, to minmize air movemnt from between gasket and door panel.
lastley in oyour second pic i see "frost free" written on a plastic air deflector. you can remove that with 3-4 screws on backside of it, and then reinstall with a small spacer so as the baffle now with sit with a 3/8in. gap between it and the top of the freezer liner.( a brass ferrel from the compression fitting of a plumbing fitting is just the right size)..... the theory behind this is to prevent the air from gatting "trapped" in the void created when the door closes-- air can now pass back and forth freely.
I hope this gives you some satisfaction if not I would advise another tech be sent who is willing to call for factore tech support( ths is where i got my info from)

The freezer defrosted and now it won't get to the
The humming noise is a fan the circulates the freezer air. When it defrosts it shuts down the cooling cycle and turns on some heating wires. They quickly melt the accumulated ice. Then it all turns back on. Most problems take place during this time because of the rapid temperature change and the dripping water. I would 1st check out the fan. Not sure where yours is but you should be able to remove a cover and be able to see it and the defrost heater. Be careful not to get shocked, but check to see if fan is moving. Small possibility that a connect got wet and corroded or more likely the fan just didn't come back on. Needs to be replace.

although you could just close the door and it should right itself,could it be the right time for a total defrost and clean.all the drains/vents.....auto defrost only does the inside of the unit,

How to turn quick freeze feature off (yellow light) on older Frigidaire chest freezer
That yellow light on sonne older modelks is just showingbtge power is on. I never heard of a chest freezer having a "quick freeze" feature. This feature would also require forced air cooling and auto defrost. If the walls get frost on ghr m t hen Im betting that is ju st a power light although it may say freeze or something else like that. Its just so when you see the yrllow light you know there is power.
