check the fan behind the false wall inside the freezer. the wires may have fallen; blocking the fan from turning and not allowing cool air to circulate inside the freezer. move wires away from fan push fan backwards along its axle to give it proper clearence

SOURCE: freezer - top shelf frosted over -- poor cooling through rest of freezer

Hi yadak,
Happy to help.

You may need a new door seal.
But they are not easy to put on properly
and I would not recommend spending a lot of money on a ten year old freezer!
the new ones are much more energy efficient and will save you a lot of money!

SOURCE: frost build up especially on top shelf all other

Things you can do to cut down on frost.
1.make sure all seals fit flush to frame.
2.use a thermometer and set freezer to -18c(beef will keep upto 12months).
3.wrap all food as airtight as poss.
3.do not overfill,leave space for air flow through drawers/shelves.
4.defrost every 2/3 months in humid conditions using clorine bleach to clean interior,and dry thoroughly.(leave door open to dissipate clorine gas.)

You will have to move the freezer out away from the wall. The coils will be inside of the bottom of the freezer. These coils are going to need to be cleaned. You can google images of condenser coils. That will show you what you need to clean.

SOURCE: coils frozeup and iced on

Defrost the unit totally so you can see no more ice, may take a day or more with door open, once done, restart the unit, check you can hear the fan running in the freezer, if not, replace fan unit, if you can hear it, the defrost timmer may have failed or the defrost element has gone. If the unit appears to work correctly, dont be fooled, the problem will return, if the unit does not work as it should, regas is required. Hope that helps.

Dont forget to vote for the solution, thankyou

My up right freezer in frosing at top inside part of the unit.


Frosting on evaporator coil should be evenly distributed all over the coil. If the frosting only appears up on the top around where the refrigeration line enters then the gas pressure is too low - if you add refrigerant the frosting will move down to cover the bottom coils also.

Frigidaire upright model ffu21k2cw1 frost on top shelf and not cooling properly


http://manuals.frigidaire.com/prodinfo_pdf/StCloud/216802800en.pdf
Your unit is not self defrosting so I would suggest you do a manual defrost and see if it corrects the problem.
Also make sure that you have good air flow across the compressor.

RFA52 upright fridge freezer keeps frosting up.what is the 'normal' setting for the freezer 0 or 1?


Setting should be midrange. If the freezer is frosting on the back panel you have a defrost problem. The coils will be iced over and the unit will slow down on it's cooling. If there is frost you will need to deice the coils by removing the frezzer back wall panel and use a hair dryer to melt all of the ice. The problem causer of all this will be either the defrost timer, defrost t-stat or defrost heater. Good luck.

Upright freezer


If it has a fan in the freezer it need to be running to circulate the cold air.
If the coils are not icing up evenly from top to bottom you have a system low on freon.
The light frosting is normal.
A model number would really help to troubleshoot the problem.

Lost vacumn, door popped open alarm on


If is the type of freezer where the shelves are also the evaporator(shelves are very cold and is normal to frost), the fact that only one shelf is iced would indicate the system is low on freon due to a leak. This would also explain the hot walls and compressor. It requires a service man to check the freon level and locate leak and recharge.

The top shelf in my upright freezer ices up badly; but the rest of the freezer is great - no ice! What causes this and is there something I can put on that shelf to keep the ice from building up.


If this is the type of freezer where the shelves are the evaporator coils, the coolant goes through the shelves(tubing) and the formation of frost is normal and has to be manually defrosted.All the shelves should be as cold asd the top one. The fact that just one has any frost may indicate that it is low on freon. If this is the case you should notice that the freezer doesn't get cold enought.

Upright freezer not cooling


The model number would help but it sounds like a sealed system leak or restriction. If thats the case I would not suggest trying this yourself. The water should freeze overnight and the frost should keep going to all the shelfs that have coils in them.

Freezer frost


An upright freezer that is not frost free will have the coils in the shelves (shelves are non-removeable) and that is where the frost will buildup.  If your model is like this then it will have to be defrosted periodically.  If your not sure then give me the entire model # from the sticker inside the freezer and I will look it up for you.
