Question about Frigidaire 13.7 cu. ft. Upright Freezer GLFU1467F
I purchased my freezer (Frigidaire upright) on 9/28/07. I have had 3 repair person out to try to correct the problem of ice build-up on the inside of the door by the top shelf.
1st repairman said there was not enough air flow because the light shield was blocking flow. he put spacers under the shield.
I got ice build-up again.
2nd repairman said not enough spacers were added and added more.
I got ice build-up again.
3rd repairman said that is the way that the freezer will always be because no insulation is installed in the door, only on the front of the door and not inside the door.
If this is the way all these freezers work,and ice builds up then why did I buy a "frost free" freezer
I think Frigidaire needs to fix this problem or quit saying there freezers are "frost free"
I have the same problem on a upright. New under Warr.
On 2nd trip installed more inslation in the door. Same problem
3rd trip installed baffel in the back with no holes in it said to much air flow. Same problem.
Factory doesn't know what the problem is. Looks to me like it might be a bad gasket because the magnetic material doesnt go all the way to the top on the right site.
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 upright freezer has an internal air leak. The moisture is entering from the freezer walls. You can stop the problem by sealing the crack between the sides and top of inside of cabinet with duc-tape. I know because I had the same problem. The fan is drawing moisture from the crevices around the top of cabinet and freezing it onto your deflector.
