Ice crystals and freezer burn

I have a Whirlpool side by side 9years old. Bread and most foods get ice crystals and freezer burn after only 1 week. The door gasket looks good. The defrost heater comes on and pulls about 5A for about 3 min and cycles off with the cover removed. The evaporator fan runs as advertised. No ice build up on evap coil. Temps in both sides seem to be normal. Defrost t-stat reads open at room temp. Any help would be much appreciated!

There is no forced defrost entry for your refrig. Yours has a ADC board in the upper right corner of the control area in the refrig section. The only way to initate defrost is jump the terminals on the board. Look at the wiring diagram closely before making the jump. The board energizes the heater thru the neutral side so make sure you dont jump line to this. I believe you jump L2 to Def

SOURCE: Frigidaire side by side - replaced defrost timer.

Good day,
Sounds like a bad timer to me. Forget the tstat. Power comes from the power cord and goes directly to the tstat. The tstat sends the power to the timer where it is directed to either the compressor or defrost heaters as needed.
Recheck your plug connector to the timer carefully. I have installed many timers that did not work, or work right, right out of the box.
As well, to cover yourself, I would replace the defrost tstat which is located behind the rear panel in the freezer compartment.
It's a small round disk clipped to the top of the cooling coil, and is the component that is by far, the component that fails most often.
Check the connections to the main heater as well, while your in there.
The defrost tstat looks like this.

Sounds like a refrigerant problem if you have changed all those parts already. It doesnt have enough capacity to properly cool. This also means there is a leak somewhere in the refrigeration system. This usually isnt a DIY project because you have to be licensed to use freon and it also involves Brazing to fix the leak. If you feel brave enough heres what u can do first you need a piercing valve to break into the refrigeration system to check pressures. let me know what the pressures are and what type of freon is used in freezer. I will help you from here let me know.

FREEZER SIDE TOO MUCH ICE FRIDGE SIDE NOT TOO COLD


If it has ice buildup on the back wall inside the freezer, it appears to have a defrost problem. Unplug it, put your food in another unit (or ice chests), open the freezer door and let it thaw out overnight for at least 12 hours or more, or until all the ice has melted from *behind* the back wall. Then close the doors and run it for 4 hours and check to see if the fresh food side is cold. If it is, call a repairman to fix the defrost problem. That could be a burned out heater, terminator, or defrost timer depending on your exact model.

Whirlpool ED25RF Does ice maker have a filter? My ice taste funny and sometimes its dirty


The ice maker doesn't have a filter , the problem could be the ice maker itself that the tray ,which is made out of aluminum is losing particles.Look at the conditions of the ice maker tray ,if you see like white spots replace the ice maker.

Frozen foods collecting ice crystals in my freezer


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.

Neverending ice cystals buildup in freezer


Hi Rachel,

Opened 3-10 times per day, per week, per month?

There is only one possible source of these ice crystals -- moisture precipitating from the air (condensate) -- this air is coming from outside the freezer. It's either getting in when the freezer is opened or coming in around the gasket.

You might try a very thin coat of vaseline on the gasket to get a better seal.

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.

Ice from Ice maker smells and has a bad taste. Whirlpool model ED22TQXFW00.


if the ice has been in the freezer ice bin for a couple of weeks or if you added any food to the freezer that is not totaly frozen before adding then the ice will absorbe the odor of the food added, also the defrost of the evaperator will also add to bad ice taste
a new filter for the ice maker is maybe needed, depending on how long it has been since it was changed
if it has been changed, youcan try this whirlpool tip
put a small pie pan in the freezer and one in the fresh food section
add 1/2 inch of fresh coffee not coffee grounds to each pan
leave in for 24 hrs
dump out coffee in the sink drain
repeat the process
dump coffee in 24 hrs
odor GONE

Freezer is producing"snow" and freezer burning everything


AFTER A DEFROST,HAVE A GOOD LOOK AT THE DOOR RUBBER. IT MUST BE 100% SEALED FOR A FREEZER. (SHOULD ALSO HEAR A SLIGHT VACUME WHEN DOOR IS SHUT WHEN UP NTO TEMP).ALSO MAKE SURE MOTOR IS SWITCHING OFF AT +/- 20C (TEMP).IF ALLOWED TO RUN CONTINUOUSLY TEMP WILL PULL DOWN TO CREATE EXCESS FROST.
