Check and clean the air cooled condenser for dust and dirt. Check and make sure the fan in back, on the bottom behind a removable panel, is operating. After cleaning the condenser replace the panel.
Also you stated there is no frost anywhere. Did you check the back wall of the freezer for frost buildup. If not check it and if there is frost there your defrost system is not working and the frost has stopped air circulation.

What you have is a defrost problem. Most likely the defrost heater has failed. Read more about it HERE

My freezer works but not freezing


Could you please list a model number with your request for assistance? If I cannot answer your request just posting a model number moves customers to the top of the list for solutions. You refrigerator model number is most times found around the fresh food compartment door frame.

The most likely reason the freezer is not freezing as well as befor are the defrost components. Can you see a layer of frost building on the rear wall of the freezer? An example of this is found HERE Signs Of Defrost Failure and if you have these signs the evaporator behind the rear wall of the freezer wil look like this=> Evaporator Covered in Frost Due to Defrost Failure Let me know if the fans in freezer and under the refrigerator are running. Also if you don't have these signs the compressor may be short cycling due to a defective start relay, run capacitor and overload. Let me know and I will be here to answer your questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

Sometimes water comes out everywhere all over the floorand on the inside, now everything freezes inside the firdge


behind the freezer inner wall is a tube that leads down to a pan under your refrigerator it is blocked: remove the wall; remove the ice buildup on the evaporator coils then using a funnel pour hot water through the tube to the pan. be sure to empty the pan when you are done

1 Answer

Freezer won't keep the sane Temp


Check that the fanmotor is running and is not obstructed. If it is running, then you have an ice build up on the freezer (evaporator) coils. This can be caused by failure of the defrost system. Either the control board needs replacing or the defrost element, or the thermodisc.

Whirlpool upright freezer AFG823NF-Thermostat not working properly


JennyT just trying to help with this. I assume this is a self defrost model. If so then is there an ice build up on the back wall? If so then the unit isn't defrosting. That is why pushing the Fast Freeze button is no longer working. You can get by however. Remove all the food from the freezer, put a vacumn in the freezer and shut the door. Turn on the vacumn, this will pull the warm air thru the freezer and in 30 minutes to an hour it will be defrosted enough to work until you can get someone to replace the 1 of 3 parts that the defrost system uses. The vacumn is what I use to defrost my nonself defrosting freezer. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
