SOURCE: freezer "leaking" cold water on floor

sounds like a drain clog in the freezer compartment above. remove the freezer rear panel and totally defrost the evaporator area, directly under the evap you see( under all taht ice) a small drain hole that has become frozen over, try defrosting with either a hair dryer( not a heat gun too much heat youl melt everything) or by pouring hot water donw the drain until you get a free flow of water down the tube. after its clear reassemble and you should be fine

SOURCE: I have 16.7 upright Frigidaire Ultrafreeze

Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

Food is not completely freezing in spots


This is a symptom of air leaking into the freezer. The most common place is around the door. Check the door really good to make sure something is not obstructing it from closing all the way, it may be closing enough to satisfy the ajar alarm but not enough for a bit of moisture to sneak in. Look for tears or breaks in the seal. If you put a bright flashlight inside the freezer and close the door, turn off the lights in the room you may find a leak that way.

Won't freeze after door was left open


Having the door open has introduced an excess of humidity and therefore condensate/ice into the freezer coils. The coils are therefore iced over. You have choices depending upon your skill level. You might: allow the unit to sit unplugged with the door open until the excess ice thaws out and wets the floor underneath, which may take from 6 to 24 hours. You might: do this, adding some heat source in the freezer to accelerate the process. You might: locate the defrot timer, advancing the timer until a click is heard indicating the unit is in defrost, and repeat after about 15 minutes to defrost the unit with it's own heater. You might: let it recover just as it is but it will take a couple of days to clear itself.

Freezer only freezing to 20 degrez


If the door was left ajar for any extended period frost has built up on the cooling coils. A complete defrost of the freezer should take care of the problem. Normally a frost free system will clear the ice from the cooling coil when the defrost time cycle happens. However frost may have built up in areas where the heaters can not readily remove it in a normal defrost cycle and shutting the unit down with the door open for about 24 hours should clear it out.
