Freezer burn is the result of sublimation (the change of state from a solid to a vapor) In order to prevent/cut down on the rate of freezer burn make sure that all foods are tightly wrapped and/or sealed. The more are you can remove from the package before freezing the better. That is why vacuum sealing is so popular. Hope this helps

your freezer might be having blockage on the drain pipe thus not allowing water to flow on the drain tray if the drain tray is mounted on the compressor and its dry then the compressor or the condensor pipes are burning the drain tray. the solution to this problem is to service your freezer

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.

Freezer Burn


It sounds like you may be overloading your unit. If you place a large quanity of non frozen items in the freezer at one time, it may take a few hours to bring the temperature back down. This usually happens with a chest type not an upright. Insure when adding items to the freezer there is room for air movement. With out looking at it I think the problem is the defrost timer or sensor. Maybe staying on too long increasing the overall temperature of the unit. When ever the defrost cycle is on, the cooling unit is also off. As far as the meat freezer burning, none of the freezer bags I have used prevent this. I pr-wrap my meat in freezer paper and then place it in a bag, sometimes freezer bags sometimes not. I try not to buy meat from grocery stores, I grow my own meat and have it butchered and vacuum packed, it doesn't change color. Please note that items in a freezer bag moved around after the contents have frozen will cause air leaks in the bags very easily.

Meat freezer burns


Hi,tomonbow
ngafm at your service,

You said,you are getting freezer burn in only two days, right?

Are you putting the meat in proper freezer bags and squeezing
air out as you zip lock the bag?
If you do not use proper freezer bags you will always get freezer burn on meats!

WAIT ! This will not happen in two days!
Seems to me something else has happened to your meat prior to your purchase and it probably is not the freezer at fault.

If it happens to meat that you feel was not frozen when you bought it, check with the store of purchase to see if it came into them frozen before it was put in their refrigerator case!
Most super markets receive cases of frozen meat and then put them in the walk in refrigerator, or refrigerator case to present them for sale to the customers and they defrost in the case.

Then we think we are buying meat that is fresh and never been frozen!
Fresh meat will not freezer burn in 2 days unless it has happened previously to the time you bought it.

Also when you freeze any meat you buy, repack it in proper freezer bags and not just any zip lock bag!

But I believe it happened before you bought it.
And i'll bet it all came from the same store.
that's why some people shop at a butcher shop or Costco type store where the meat is fresher and sells out faster!
Bless you.

Please give me a good rating before you sign off.
Thank You.
Let me know the verdict. I think I'm right on target!
Do some investigating and ask the store some hard questions!

Burning Smell


Keep it unplugged and look for burned wires, or rubber wires hardened from extreme heat. This will be a good start in finding what is going wrong. One more thing to check is if the compressor is heating up after running for a while. Let it run for 20 min or so, shut off the power and feel the compressor. Is it hot?
