Re: leakage and warm sides
The outsides should will be warm. This is normal because the condensor lines run thru the cabinet from about half way up the sides and over the top. Which is why the you shouldn't have anything stacked on top of the freezer and enough room on the sides of it for air flow. As far as the water leak, tell me exactly where you see the water and does the bottom of the freezer (inside) have a sheet of ice on it. If there is ice there then the drain behind the bottom panel in the freezer is frozen over and will have to be thawed out. Let me know what you find. If you have further questions I may need the entire model # on the sticker inside the freezer.

When a refrigerator leaks water like yours, it is common for the problem to be nothing more than a clogged defrost drain. When the unit defrosts itself, the frost melt water drips into a pan underneath the evaporator in the freezer, and goes through a tube from there to the bottom outside of the unit. Since the water cant go down this drain, it backs up on the freezer floor, then eventually the kitchen floor.
there is a drain hose that comes out of the bottom of the cabinet into a drain pan underneath your freezer take a look and see if that got pulled loose during your move. if it is in place then you most likely have a plugged drain. this can be cleaned fromt he inside at the botom. reomve the bottom basket and the shelf right above it. you will see ice build up on the floor of the freezer and and behind the cover. just defrost the ice you will uncover the drain hole flush warm water thru the line till it runs clear. good luck peyton
You said, you have a FFU20FC6AW2 freezer that I have noticed is running continuously. Explains my $400 electric bill.
How old is the freezer?
The thermostat may be faulty. But check out this list first.
If the black tubes running back and forth that carry the freon is under the freezer and behind the plastic grill down near the floor you may want to remove the grill cover and gently run a refrigerator brush across the coils. Ive seen them never cleaned and full of lint and dust 2 inches thick. This is not good for the freezer or any refrigerator too! They need to be clean so air can run across them or they over heat and get hot. Room or outside weather is hot. It is normal for the freezer to work harder under these conditions. Reasons why Freezer may run too much or too long. 1.Freezer had recently been disconnected for a period of time. Freezer requires 4 hours to cool down completely. 2.Large amounts of warm or hot food have been stored recently. Warm food will cause the freezer to run more until the desired temperature is reached. 3.Door is kept open too long or too frequently. Warm air enters the freezer every time the door is opened. Open the door less often.
4.Freezer door may be slightly open. (Freezer is not level. It rocks on the floor when it is moved slightly. This condition can force the cabinet out of square and misaligned the door.Freezer needs to be leveled if this occurs. Floor is uneven or weak. Freezer rocks on the floor when it is moved slightly. Level the floor by using metal or wood shims under the freezer or brace floor supporting the freezer.
5.Temperature control is set too cold. Turn the control knob to a warmer setting. Allow several hours for the temperature to stabilize. 6.Freezer gasket is dirty, worn, cracked, or poorly fitted. Clean or change gasket. Leaks in the door seal will cause freezer to run longer in order to maintain desired temperature.
Let me know what you find Huuum Please remember to leave a rating before you leave.
it should be warm to the touch but not so hot you cant. and also depending on how long the freezer is running and how warm it is where the freezer is will effect how hot the outside is. the reason the outside of the freezer is hot is because thats how the freezer releses its heat from the refrigerant. the longer it runs or the harder it has to work the more heat it has to hive off. so unless the freezer is not cooling there is nothing to worry about.
if you don't hear it running for extended periods of time (more than 15 minutes) without stopping, and if it does not immediately re-start once it does stop, and if it is extremely hot climate outside (85 F and above), then yes, this is acceptable.
