Frigidaire Freezer Model FFU17C3AW1 door not sealing properly?

At first we noticed that the ice cream was not freezing completely. Then we noticed that the items in the door of the freezer were not frozen. Finally we noticed that the suction sound that we would hear when we closed the door originally was now gone. We have checked to make sure that nothing is effecting how the door closes and that there is nothing between the door gasket and the freezer body.

Good Afternoon Vonaspern,

I understand that you are having trouble with the door sealing properly on your Frigidaire freezer, model# FFU17C3AW1. I see that you have already checked to make sure there is nothing blocking the door from closing as well as making sure there was nothing between the door gasket and the freezer body. Next, I would check to make sure that the gasket is not damaged or compromised in any way. If it is not damaged, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your freezer and determine what is causing your appliance to properly seal. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Several things could cause this. To check most things you will need to remove the back wall of the freezer to see the evaporator. It is possible the freezer is low on gas. If it is the coils will usually appear to be only half frosted or less. It is possible the defrost is bad ( I assume this is a frost free) In this case the coils will be totally clogged with ice and no air can circulate. If so you'll most likely have to replace the bi-metal... a circular looking part about the diameter of a quarter clipped onto the coil with 2 wires leading from it. This may also cause the fan to stop running from ice accumulation...or the fan itself could be bad which would also cause a partial meltdown. Unless the machine needs gas an appliance repair person will probably charge you around 100 bucks for most of these repairs..gassing it of course will be more and there is no guarantee how long the gas will stay in it as most leaks are difficult, if not impossible to locate. Hope that helps !

SOURCE: Freezer is running but the items are thawing and not freezing

it could possible be the defroster unit going out on the thermostat theres a hole on the bottom where you can access a screw that will allow you to check and see if the defroster is working put a srew driver in the hole and turn it clock wise till you here it click and then listen for the unit to start defrosting cycle you'll hear a hissing like sound if its working if not you'll need a new defrosting unit

Freezer will not shut off some things frozen, bread and ice cream soft


Have you checked that the door is closing ok and that the door seals are meeting the door frame all round?
Do the things that freeze sit at the top of the freezer? if so it could be
the coolant gas has slowly leaked out. A good indication this has happened is that the bottom of the freezer is a lot warmer than the top. To repair a serviceman will first cut the coolant pipe and drain (and capture) the existing gas and then recharge, re-pressurise and seal.

Frigidaire freezer has ice accumulating and not freezing properly. Ice cream will not freeze.


Try turning the temperature control to off, unplug the electrical power cord from the power outlet, defrost the appliance, clean the condenser, plug the power cord into an electrical outlet, set the temperature control to a low setting, lay a thermometer in the freezer for a few hours and see what happens to the temperature in the machine.
Check the integrity of the seal of the door gasket by seeing how the door seal will hold a slip of paper in various locations along the freezer door gasket. A loose hold on the slip of paper shows an area where hot moist air can get into the freezer and cause ice build up.

My hotpoint under counter freezer isn't freezing properly


A freezer has a very simple operating design and there are only 2 customer serviceable components.
1. Make sure the cold control is set at the proper level.
2. Make sure that the door seal is making good contact with the cabinet. You can apply a thin coat of Vaseline to the door seal to help tight closure of the door.
Keep the door opening to a minimum during extreme heat conditions. Any small air leak can drastically reduce the operating norms during extreme heat conditions.
That's about all that you can do to regain control, the rest will have to be performed by a refrigeration tech. if you are still dissatisfied.
