The frost free freezer has started to form ice


First point of investigation, is to check the door seal. Sometimes new seals get stuck-suction and when opened and shut possibly cause a small tear, lubricate very gently with Vaseline, this will enable the seal to firstly seal properly and secondly not put undue pressure due to suction on new door seals.
If that does not resolve it then have a technician check the thermostat.

Excessive frost- maybe door won't close well Builds up on to shelves the worst--could it be the rubber seal


First you must fully defrost your freezer. Frost simply attracts more frost. A build up of frost large enough to prevent the door closing properly will grow very rapidly indeed and waste a lot of electricity; it will also overload the compressor and can cause it to fail prematurely.

If the seal is damaged then it will allow moist air in and cause frost. If the seal has simply become unseated, then refitting it will prevent a recurrence.

Unless you have a frost-free model, then all freezers eventually need defrosting. You can slow the process by never opening the freezer door unnecessarily and also by never leaving it open any longer than necessary. Frost free models rely on air circulation via a fan to prevent frost build up. If the fan fails, or if the freezer is overloaded and so preventing air circulation then it will still frost up.

Freezer is frosting


Even frost free freezers will frost up in high humidity, especially if there is a poor door seal. Defrost the freezer by turning it of and placing pans of hot tap water in the freezer. You can speed this along by helping to remove the ice as it melts. Check the door seal after you've defrosted the freezer, a bad seal is one of the big causes of frosting up the next biggest problem is usually holding the door open.
If it's a frost free unit, if the problem continues you'll need to have it checked out.

Your door seal is not sealing properly . Check and use a hairdryer to soften the seal and the magnetic portion should seal itself against the cabinet .

How do I replace the door seal on a Neff under the counter refrigerstor?


Some door seal gaskets just wedge into place and are easily replaced. Replacing the gasket is simply the reverse of removing the old one. You peal out the old gasket and fit in the new and press it into the slot.

Frost in the freezer


IS IT ICE OR FROST? IF IT IS ICE, THE DOOR MAY HAVE BEEN LEFT CRACKED OPEN.
IF IT IS FROST, IS THIS A FROST FREE FREEZER?
IF YES, IS THE FROST ON THE BACK WALL?
IF YES, THERE IS A DEFROST FAILURE AND YOU WILL NEED TO TROUBLESHOOT THE DEFROST CIRCUIT.
IF THE FROST IS ON THE FOOD OR AROUND THE DOOR OPENING, A SEAL LEAK HAS ALLOWED WARM MOIST AIR INTO THE FREEZER AND CREATED THE FROST. CHECK THE DOOR SEAL FOR A GAP WHEN CLOSED.

SIDE BY SIDE FRIDGE DOORS VERY HARD TO OPEN


its because the door seals are new and are working correctly. The pressure difference between the warm outside and the cold inside cause a sort of vaccum and so makes it hard to open. It is usually only after the door has been closed a while that it will be hard to open. put your finger around the edge of the door and shift the seal slightly, this will release the vaccum and let the door open normally. It will get better after a few weeks. I have had 2 whirlpools also and this has been the same on both of mine.

Frost in Kenmore frost free


Although you say the seal is fine, this is almost certainly due to air getting in. With the door closed check that there isn't a tiny gap with a strip of thin card or plastic. Of course if air is getting in then it must also be getting out somewhere else so probe all around the seal.

Door seal


If the door was left open you may have frozen the evaporator (on a frost free). I would suggest defrosting it as soon as possible and make sure the door doesnt get left open again. If it is not frost free it may just be that it is still trying to recover the temp it had lost by an open door. Hope this helps.
