Chest type freezer icing up real bad

I have a chest type freezer that is not frost free. It is a 12 cubic ft. Problem is that it has been icing up real bad and I am having to clean it about once a month. The seal appears to be ok but that doesn't mean it is not bad. The unit freezes ok but it just keeps icing up. The majority of the ice is located at the front of the unit. When you open it up there is about 2 feet at the front of the unit that is icing.

I quick way to test the door seal is take a dollar bill close the door on it if you can pull the dollar out with little resistance the seal needs to be replaced. That is what I am thinking is wrong with unit.

Just got a used 5.0 frigidaire chest freezer and noticed that it is starting to frost at the top but water is starting to pool at the bottom. any help would be appreciated


Good day,
The interior walls should frost evenly. If you only get a partial frosting pattern then either you have a refrigerant leak or a restriction in the refrigerant lines.
Either problem would be considered a terminal failure in a chest freezer.

Excess frost not keeping food frozen


you have a refrigeration issue. let me guess. is the frost real thick around a small area not the entire lining? if so you have a restriction or leak. cheaper to replace by the way
