The door doesn't seal right

It used to have sort of a sucking action when the door was closed now it doesn't. it still gets cold and ice forms on the coils and on the inside top. is the door seal bad or is it something i can't see?

Wipe off your gaskets and frame that sucking was the unit sealing itself. The better the seal the colder the food the more efficient it runs

I have severe ice forming in my freezer.


Hi,

On this unit the shelves are the cooling coils and carry the refrigerant (freon) through the system. They will attract the warm moist air by design, so if you have an air leak in the door or elsewhere it will tend to build up there first.

This being said you need to check something else first. Make sure the other shelves are cold. If they are frosted and cold like normal then you most likely have a door that is not closing all the way or a bad seal. If the lower shelves are not cold then you have a system problem, typically a refrigerant (freon) leak that is causing the top shelf to absorb most of the work and not enough refrigerant to flow to the bottom shelves.

I hope this helps

Ice if forming along top gasket area and side of freezer where


If we have ice on the inside of the freezer it means air is being pulled into the box somewhere. The most likely place is the door seal, it sounds like you already checked it, but I would suggest that you look very close at the bottom and aides of the seal too, it could be leaking in air from there. Check the inside liner for cracks and seal them if you find any. Look at the corners of the cabinet to make sure there is not room for air to come in.

Air leaks will lead to frost, it is just hard sometimes to find where it is leaking in.

Ice crystals forming on inside front freezer panel


Very possible the door seal is not properly sealed. Warm inflowing air onto a cold coil will cause ice build up at the lid.

Door doesn't close properly, leaks water


If the door seals are still pliable and intact there are two possible causes.

1/ The upper door hinge on the top of freezer unit has two adjusting screws under a plastic cover/cap which allows the upper hinge to be set forward or back altering/adjusting the spacing of the door seal to the freezer body. Moving the hinge outward at the top will cause the door to seal tighter at the bottom and lessen escaping cold air and condensation to form (water droplets). Adjust carefully so as not to create a weak seal (air gap) along other sealing edges of the door frame.

2/ Many United Refrigeration Commercial Freezers are manual defrosting. Moisture from inside the freezer can condense between the inner molded door panel (door shelves) and the exterior metal door. Usually ice buildup will occur in this space, but when defrosting or during high ambient temps the ice will melt and drip out along the bottom door edge/seal. Screws alomg the door frame (hidden by the door seal) hold the seal in place and also the inner molded door panel. The inner panel can be removed to replace the seal or to remove the ice buildup.

Upright freezer door inside developing ice


The door seal is at fault. Regardless of the small tear it is not sealing well.
Take a dollar bill and close it in the door. Then pull on the bill to feel resistance.
You will find it pulls easily in some place. That is where your air leak is that is causing the condensation.
Do this about every 6 inches all the way around the seal.

Not sucking out air when door closes anymore


run your hand around the freezer gasket with the freezer closed slowly and see if you feel any cold air,also check corners they leak to,frost is caused by warm air getting into the freezer or the defrost system is failing,let me know what you find-mike

Frigidaire frostlfree upright freezer ice forming top interior door


Not sealing. warm air hitting cold air causing frost. also, door frame heater may not be working. most frames are "warm" to the touch. normally called an "anti sweat" heater.

Door seal


i wouldn't worry about vacuum seal. door gaskets contain a low powered magnet around the entire face for "contact" seal, id look into perhaps something placed on one of the shelves or door blocking the door from closing as tightly as you remembered. if you have a problem with that gasket. it would have to be physically ripped and where it didn't make contact you would have an influx of warm air resulting in ice balls forming inside door liner adjacent to seal
