596.77277790 freezer ice buildup in front top corner

There is ice buildup near the freezer top front corner of the unit. the seal is visably not tight when the door is closed normaly. it can be pushed in with hand pressure, and even lifted a small bit (less than 1/4") and it seems to make a tight seal. But then, when the top refidgerator door get pushed closed normaly, the freezer pops open a little bit. Is this a seal problem, an alignment problem, or something else?

If your refrigerator is fairly new, the seals probably are OK. More likely, the door alignment has to be adjusted.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Below is a link to common solutions that will help you with parts and diagnostic procedures that are specifically tuned to your manufacturers data plate information.
It provides exploded view imagery, belt routing diagrams, parts imagery and function, parts ordering and shipping information, error code details, just about anything you need to get your appliance up and running again. Once you access the site you will be able to navigate numerous pages of information on your product. You will need to enter your model number to access your product information.

Tip: Always provide the complete information provided on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the user’s manual. This will help you acquire a more accurate and expeditious response to your complaint. I will post the most common solutions to your complaint. For more specific information please refer to the tip and/or link provided.

Any time a door is letting warm air into the freezer, frost will develop. Manually defrost the area with a WARM setting on a hair dryer. DO NOT OVERHEAT! Inspect the ice chute door for proper closure. Possibly a spring may have broken.

If my assistance helped resolve this issue, please show your appreciation by rating how effective my advice was in resolving this issue.

SOURCE: the freezer door will not close tight

Hello, check the freezer sliding door rail. Removed everything in your freeze then gently slide out the freezer door. Check the bottom of the freezer for food items that may have dripped into the bottom of the freezer. Now, the check the roller rails along each side of the freezer there could have been widget that got smash by the roller on the freezer door, if you find this smashed widget--he not drunk--he is dead. Scrape the those roller rails and clean the and get all the globs,ice cream, widgets, pieces of other different types of freezer flub.
Next, set a level on the freezer door and see if the bubble is point forward, if not then screw up the front two leveler in the front of the freeze--one on each side in the front of the freezer/refrigerator. I hope this help you. GB...stewbsion

Model EEV-163F Whirlpool Upright Freezer. Defrosted this week, already seeing ice buildup. Freezer is cold and appears to run fine, but frost buildup seems excessive this quickly. Frost throughout


This freezer is not frost free. Being an upright limiting the amount and frequency of opening the door will reduce the build up of ice. Ice is expected and depending on humidity and quality of seal around door affects the amount of ice.

Using a thin ribbon check the seal integrity around the door. Confirm nothing is prohibiting the full closure of the door.

Adjust door if necessary. Replace seal if defective. Freeze open unsealed items in a frost free freezer before locating frozen food in this unit.

These units are likely located in the garage where the humidity is high. If used only as needed planning transfer between this and the kitchen unit frost can be minimized.

Being a conventional freezer not frost free freezer burn is less likely and frozen food will not dry out as quickly. Confirm that the freezer maintains about 0 degree F.

This unit is likely more efficient and will maintain the food frozen longer in the event of power outage.

Hope this helps?

795.72063.112 keeps accumulating ice in the freezer. Keep defrosting it but it continues. How do I find the problem and fix it once and for all.


This could be a lot of things. The most common cause of this is an air leak in the seals. To check the seals take a dollar bill and close the door on it leaving a little stick out and see how hard it is to pull out. There should be some resistance to pulling it out of the door. Then move it up and try again. Check all the doors to see if they are fitting tight. Any air leaks into the unit can bring moisture and then the moisture condenses and freezes near the evaporator coils. The other thing is a water leak from the ice maker or water lines. Last but not least is the defrost system. If there is an obstruction in the drain try that is under the evaporator coils then the unit is defrosting like it is supposed to but the water has no place to go and is running over the tray and refreezing on the walls of the freezer.

Not freezing food


Obviously the freezer compartment is not cold enough. Check that the evaporator is not frozen over - if it is, the ice buildup serves as an insulator and prevents unit from achieving design parameters. This can be caused by a faulty self defrost timer and/or heating element.
Also check that the thermostat is not shutting off prematurely and not allowing unit to reach lower temps.

U can also check the door gasket for proper sealing but I do nt think that is the cause. If door and other systems are ok, worse case scenario is that the unit may be low on refrigerant.

Self defrosting deep freeze not defrosting


The excess frost in those areas is probably caused by leaky door gasket seals. They should be tight enough to hold a dollar bill securely all the way around. A defrost problem would start on the coils behind the back cover inside the freezer and would also appear on the back wall before it did on the door edges.

Door doesn't close properly, leaks water


If the door seals are still pliable and intact there are two possible causes.

1/ The upper door hinge on the top of freezer unit has two adjusting screws under a plastic cover/cap which allows the upper hinge to be set forward or back altering/adjusting the spacing of the door seal to the freezer body. Moving the hinge outward at the top will cause the door to seal tighter at the bottom and lessen escaping cold air and condensation to form (water droplets). Adjust carefully so as not to create a weak seal (air gap) along other sealing edges of the door frame.

2/ Many United Refrigeration Commercial Freezers are manual defrosting. Moisture from inside the freezer can condense between the inner molded door panel (door shelves) and the exterior metal door. Usually ice buildup will occur in this space, but when defrosting or during high ambient temps the ice will melt and drip out along the bottom door edge/seal. Screws alomg the door frame (hidden by the door seal) hold the seal in place and also the inner molded door panel. The inner panel can be removed to replace the seal or to remove the ice buildup.

Top of freezer thawing


Ice build-up in the area of the door could be causing the door gaskets to loose their seal. Shut the unit off and use a hair drier to melt the ice away from the door area. Return the control to run position and see if it makes a difference.

Refridgerator/Freezer will not get cold


Check to see if the refrigerator is clean at the condensor at the bottom or at the top of the unit. All fans running inside and outside the unit? Door gaskets sealing tightly. Put a dollar bill between the door gasket and cabinet and clost the door. Slight drag ok. No rsistane, bad gasket. No solution at this point, call for service.

Frost is due to outside air leaking into unit. Check on back wall to see if hole for ice maker fill tube is still plugged. If not and you have no ice maker cover hole with tape. Also look for water or ice build up in bottom of freezer or ref. sections. May have a plugged drain. Let me know what you find.
