Frozen foods collecting ice crystals in my freezer

Foods like frozen peas,corn are full of frozen ice when I open the package. The ice cream is fine for about ten days then it starts to get ice crystals inside the box. It is a Fridigidaire about 17 years old. The fridgerator portion works fine The settings are all at the middle setting.Thanks

Your freezer is getting too warm during the defrost cycle, causing condensation in your veggies and eventually freezer burn. Likely your door seals are leaking as well after 17 years which introduces even more humidity into your freezer, but I'm assuming your talking about sealed bags of veggies? You need to decrease the temp in your freezer. Get a thermometer and make sure you average around zero degrees. The cause? When is the last time you cleaned the coils at the back of the fridge. Or if they are sealed, perhaps you need to have it serviced. You can try moving your freezer setting to a colder setting it may take care of the problem.

    Colder is a decrease in temperature, warmer would be an increase in temperature, So you need to move your freezer setting towards the colder to decrease the temperature.

The chest freezer was open wide for 24 hours before I noticed it. Will I have a problem with the unit or will it be fine


as cold air sinks to the lowest point it would have been operating a little longer that if it was closed I would think that it will be fine
example chest freezers in supermarkets only have plastic sliding lids and the ice creams and other frozen foods are still frozen

Water leaking from bottom front, ice in bottom of freezer


Your drain line form the evaporator is clogged. Locate the drain under the back and use a wet/dry vacuum to unclogged drain. The drain line can be also blocked by excessive ice buildup from incomplete defrosting. Remove frozen foods and open door to freezer section and remove power and manually defrost unit. Once ice is stopped melting try vacuuming the drain line again. Sometime drain line gets clogged with debris such as garden peas, corn, wrapping and the like. Once drain line is cleared the water and ice on the freezer bottom should stop forming.
Hope this helps

Freezer is running constantly. ice crystals formed on outside of packaged foods. food is still frozen.


the door was left open,if you find frozen water droplets on the food packages or ice crystals it forms from the warm air coming in,make sure all the packages are pushed in and not hitting the door and you can tilt the fridge back a little so the door will close with a slight push.also check the ice shout door and make sure no air is leaking through it,you'll know you'll see all ice around it.you can check the condenser coil and condenser fan to see if it needs to be vacuumed,the machine will run longer if the coil is clogged with dust or if the fan isn't blowing,the coil should be cleaned every 6 to 12 months.hope this helps but it sounds like the freezer door was left open.

Frost is building up in bottom freezer. Appliance is running nonstop. I believe that the freezer drawer has been shut completely. Foods in refrigerator section are fine; foods in freezer section are...


Frost can build up for multiple reasons. Most common is the start os an iceblock. Other reasons can include condensation from door being left open or opening too much. It can also happen from backsplash from the inlet tube for the ice maker. If the fridge is running non stop. It sounds like the ice block is forming and the temps are not getting to the program temps. If at factory setting the freezer should be at or around 0 degrees and fridge should be between 42 and 48 degrees. Has the fridge shutdown at all to go into defrost? The defrost timer may have went out and is causing an iceblock. If there is an ice block always change bimetal/ defrost thermostat.

If you need any further assistacne please feel free to comment me.

KFS220RHY Is this freezer good for frozen foods as well as ice cream storage


Good day,
No reason it wouldn't work fine. It should be noted that if your in a grocery store the freezer sections used to store ice cream are separate from those for normal produce.
The reason is the ice cream is normally kept 15 degrees colder.
However, this unit has an adjustable tstat that should get you around the ideal 0 degree range.
As well, it's designed to be rugged not as energy effecient as a standard domestic freezer.

My ice cream won't stay frozen in my freezer.


Hi: Meat and other frozen foods will be rock solid at 32degrees. Ice cream will be soft it needs 0degrees to be hard. It sounds like your freezer is above 0 degrees. You tried the adjustments. Make sure the coils on the bottom are clean. They will warm a ref if they are dirty. A coil brush from the hardware store or a air compressor (plan on dusting the house when done. Just vaccuuming the front isn't enough. That's an older model but one of the controls affects both the freezer and fresh food. When it's running turn one down; if it turns off the compressor it affects both. The other control is just an air balance, to direct how much air gets to each compartment. I hope this helps, Jeff

Ice builds up inside packages in freezer.


This is the moisture coming out of the food. It is what causes freezer burn.

The problem is made worse in frost free models by the defrost cylce. Best way to slow it down is to use vacuum bags or freezer bags. Also above 0 F food deterioates faster and below it gets freezer burn and the moisture problem faster.

1st.Check the freezer door gasket for any place it maybe torn or not making a 100% seal when you close the door.That would make temperature drop. 2nd.take off bottom kick plate so you can look under the refrigerator.Using a flashlight make sure there is not alot of lint / dust stuck on the coils .If there is remove it carefully and you will see temperature lower.

Freezer not keeping things frozen


Ice cream requires a significantly lower freezing point than other foods. Keep it near the blowers or coils in most freezers and you'll be OK. Turn up the freezer a bit, and if it is all the way then move it away from the wall a bit more hope this helps!
