Question about Freezers
The fan inside the freezer keeps stopping and not working but the motor is still going outside. The food in the freezer has slowly been defrosting.
Sounds like you are freezing up! The coils are so frost-laden that they will not allow the unit to function. The unit will need a complete defrost. I'm not familiar with the exact layout of this unit but I can tell you that it needs to be shut down, have warm air blown into the fan area and completely freed of ice. If you just leave it open and turned off, this takes about 2 days.
Possible causes: humidity in the air is condensing...very humid area, too much 'window shopping', not closing the door completely, possible damaged door gasket.
Others: (on older units)
Possible defrost timer problem...or low gas. Try the defrost route. We'll go from there.

Hi Dale Dibb, thank you for your inquiry!
I understand that the food inside of your Frigidaire freezer is getting frost on the inside of the packages. I would recommend turning the temperature up inside of your freezer. Additionally moisture inside of the package would cause frost to develop on the inside of the food packages.
Please assure that all possible moisture has been removed out of the food packages prior to placing the items inside of the freezer. If there is anything else that I can help you with, please feel free to reconnect! -Matt
