Check your gaskets. If the gaskets don't make a tight seal it can condensate close to the gaskets. the red light indicator light more than likely refers to a moisture control and it should be on.

Can I replace insulation in door only?

Hi - I understand that you recently had something heavy drop on top of your Frigidaire Freezer door. From my experience the condensation does typically indicate poor door seal. When cold air and warm air outside is entering into the freezer it causes condensation. Try checking and see if the door seal is bad; place a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet double check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing it. If nothing is stopping the door from closing then I suggest contacting your manufacturer and see who they recommend to repair the unit. Hope this helps! JK

This condition is telling your that your freezer insulation is deteriorated or even leaks causing outside air contact to your freezer. By visual check the leaks, if you found, laminated it by using HVAC insulation like duct tape, PU foam etc. For best is to replace all insulation of your freezer.

Whirlpool upright freezer- model EEV151N is running but not keeping things frozen. Making a whirring noise louder than usual. At least 24 years old.

Possibly has a restricted capillary tube. Possibly has a extremely dirty condenser coil. Possibly has a bad compressor which will run but has bad valves so it doesnt actually pump the refrigerant. If the condenser coil has a fan (unlikely) it may be dead and causing the unit to run much higher pressures than normal which could cause this. Only thing you really could do would be clean the condenser coil. Anything else would need to be repaired by an Refrigeration Mechanic.

The front surface of the chest freezer is

Hi, can you put your hands on front of freezer, and check from 1 to 5 without getting burn? how long can you keep your hands on front of freezer? check from 1 to 20 and let me know, normally there's a condensate line, or part of condenser lines that passes through freezer body , purpose of those condensate line is to prevent your door gasket from freezing , especially during winter. It's normal for front of freezer to be warmed, on hot days it will be a little hotter, you said "very hot" makes me wonder how hot it is, put your hands on front of freezer, use number method and let me know, but it's normal. good luck.

Freezer stop working today and 12 months ago

your low side should read +5psi to 0 psi but not -2 psi. all of your tubing(evap+condenser) coils are inside the walls. it might be under the 5yr sealed system mgf. warrenty

Compressor Stopping

compressor is running overloaded possible problems bad relay/overload /capacitor dirty or clogged condensers if the unit uses a condenser fan suspect a bad fan. and defective thermostats are notorious for short cycling. id check the coils first and if dirty clean up maybe that can be the major problem.

Bar Chest Freezer Large

I would think that the reason the red power wire melted, was because of high amperage, not getting wet. After you replaced it the condenser fan came on, but did the compressor? It may have went out before and that's what caused the bad wire. If you have a volt/ohm meter I can help you check it out.
