Question about Frigidaire 20.3 Cu. Ft. Frost-Free Upright Freezer - White
Freezer is frost free and about 9 years old, never any problem until now. Water is now appearing on the bottom of the freezer and freezing. It seems like it is a small amount at a time but builds up a layer of ice over time. Where is water coming from? Doors are tight, it is in utility room inside house, so no extreme temperature variations on outside of unit and it has always been in this location for 9 years.

it sound like your unit has a bad sensor on it or a leak. you should never have to add refrigerant to a unit unless theres a leak then it has to be repaired firdt the recharged.

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)

Either the drain hose is plugged up with ice and not dripping into evaporator tray, or the defrost unit needs to be replaced.

pour some hot water in the drain if this does not work use compressed air

Testimonial: "So far that worked great, we will see if it continues to drain when the freezer is back on and does it defrost cycle."
freezers have safety devices to protect themselves. The compressor has an internal overload to keep it from overheating. some have external reset buttons and some do not. either way the cause must be corrected. if the freezer was low on refrigerant you would see signs of oil near the coils, tubing, or compressor. If there is no leak, it overheats when there is airflow restrictions(dirty coils) or a fan has stopped working. only a few screws keep you from seeing all there is to see. If it is clean and the fan is running, then the compressor may just be the culprit
