On Hoshizaki freezers, it has several items that can cause this. Check to see if the heater in the evap are heating up when in defrost. Older machine can force a defrost by just unplug and then plug back in to outlet to do this. There is a "Klixon" type thermostat that disconnects the heaters in case of an overheating condition. These go bad fairly often. Make sure the door closes and seals. Be sure not to do anything that hampers air flow over the evap.
I understand that you are having trouble with the door sealing properly on your Frigidaire freezer, model# FFU17C3AW1. I see that you have already checked to make sure there is nothing blocking the door from closing as well as making sure there was nothing between the door gasket and the freezer body. Next, I would check to make sure that the gasket is not damaged or compromised in any way. If it is not damaged, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your freezer and determine what is causing your appliance to properly seal. Hope this is helpful.
The hot gas valve is activated during the machines harvest cycle letting hot gas defrost the evporator. If it is "leaking by " that means that it is not fully closing during the freeze cycle causing high suction pressures and inefficient operation of the machine. And maximum freeze cycles. If that is happening it will need to be replaced by a qualified technician.
This calls for a tech that is familiar with this stuff. I have one a work and it runs great but I can't fix me. There several things it could be. Is it waking water anywhere. And does it run constantly.
