Excessive frost- maybe door won't close well Builds up on to shelves the worst--could it be the rubber seal


First you must fully defrost your freezer. Frost simply attracts more frost. A build up of frost large enough to prevent the door closing properly will grow very rapidly indeed and waste a lot of electricity; it will also overload the compressor and can cause it to fail prematurely.

If the seal is damaged then it will allow moist air in and cause frost. If the seal has simply become unseated, then refitting it will prevent a recurrence.

Unless you have a frost-free model, then all freezers eventually need defrosting. You can slow the process by never opening the freezer door unnecessarily and also by never leaving it open any longer than necessary. Frost free models rely on air circulation via a fan to prevent frost build up. If the fan fails, or if the freezer is overloaded and so preventing air circulation then it will still frost up.

My frost free refrigerator has frost even with


your freezer is getting frost because the door is not closing all the way. Make the necessary adjustments to the door so that it gets a good seal and the frost should stop

Doors won't stay closed!


Frost in the rear of freezer possibly caused by door staying open.  Door staying open possibly caused by frost buildup on ref door track.  Start by making sure the teeth on the freezer track are clear of ice and frost.  This should allow you to shut the freezer door.  Next check the freezer seal.  If it is not completely sealed it it will build up frost. It is also possible that the frost in the rear of the freezer is from a failure in the defrost cycle as the evap coils are at the back of the freezer. If this is the case your refrigerator is probably getting warmer.

FROST BUILDS UP IN ICE CHUTE FROM STORAGE BIN, AND BUILD-UP BLOCKS RELEASE OF CUBES....ALSO WATER LEAKAGE OUTSIDE LIKE WARM AIR IS COMING UP FROM OUTSIDE...


As a suggestion:
Check the trap door that opens and closes each time you obtain ice cubes. The water leakage may indicate a damaged seal allowing air from outside to enter. This will cause increased frosting and blockage.
The trap door may not be closing all the way or the magnetic seal around the freezer door may be damaged or not sealing completely.

You may also need to check the thermostat.
Temperature may be set too low. If you make an adjustment allow the unit to stabilize for 12 hours before attempting another change.

Good luck!

Ice buildup around freezer door seal.


Hi, Check and see if the gasket is leaking any where. Also check and see if the door to you ice dispenser is closing. Ice/frost only builds up around the door hen there is an air leak.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further,

Thanks

Frost inside freezer door


there is a small electric heater along the door gasket where you see the frost building up, this heater has apparently stopped working. this will also cause the door to pop open due to a poor seal. feel around where the door gasket contacts the refrigerator and it should feel a little warm. if not then a service company can replace those heaters. should not be too expensive.

If the ice build up is only on the back panel of the freezer then you have a defrost problem. Most likely a defrost thermostat or control board/timer. If frost build up is around the walls of the freezer then warm air is getting into the freezer. Most likely cause of this would be gaps in or torn door gasket or door alignment. In some cases the door was left cracked open. If gasket and door alignment is ok remove the frost and see if it comes back.
