Frost in the freezer

Our 7 year old freezer got icey over the easter weekend while we were out of town. Door was shut. Maybe some food is blocking something? Any ideas?

IS IT ICE OR FROST? IF IT IS ICE, THE DOOR MAY HAVE BEEN LEFT CRACKED OPEN.
IF IT IS FROST, IS THIS A FROST FREE FREEZER?
IF YES, IS THE FROST ON THE BACK WALL?
IF YES, THERE IS A DEFROST FAILURE AND YOU WILL NEED TO TROUBLESHOOT THE DEFROST CIRCUIT.
IF THE FROST IS ON THE FOOD OR AROUND THE DOOR OPENING, A SEAL LEAK HAS ALLOWED WARM MOIST AIR INTO THE FREEZER AND CREATED THE FROST. CHECK THE DOOR SEAL FOR A GAP WHEN CLOSED.

FRIGIDAIRE CHEST FREEZER WILL NOT FREEZE FOOD OR KEEP FROZEN


Hello Cory Mitchell - If your freezer is not cooling, it could have a floating restriction in the lines or something more complicated like an issue with the seal system that only a professional can repair. This can conclude the compressor not working correctly, the evaporator fan not turning, or even coolant in the lines at incorrect levels to properly cool. If the compressor was running, humming or even a little warm then that was typically normal. Also try checking and see if the door seal is bad; place a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and the door. Now 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. If it proves to be ineffective, connect with a professional to accurately pinpoint any potentially more serious issues.

Yesterday the door on my 14 cubic ft upright freezer did not stay shut tight (it was ajar about 1 inch for about 6 hours). When I became aware I closed and locked the door to be sure it stayed shut, but...


it may take upto24 hours to settle to -18C,remember it has to cool right through the food in the freezer,as well as the walls.also if the food went soft, it is spoilt......cook meat asap then refreeze.

Temperature Alarm


although you could just close the door and it should right itself,could it be the right time for a total defrost and clean.all the drains/vents.....auto defrost only does the inside of the unit,

ONLY HAD THE FREEZER ABOUT 2 YEARS AND GOT HOME TODAY AND IT WAS COMPLETELY THAWED...LIGHT WAS ON BUT IT WAS WARM? UNPLUGGED IT AND REPLUGGED IN AND IT STARTED RUNNING>>>ANY IDEAS WHY THIS...


this happen to me a couple of times:
once the kids didnt completely close the door and everything defrosted so i got the key and keep it lock so it wont happen again
the other time (frigidaire model) i put too much food on the top shlef and blocked the air vents and it defrosted as well.
but both times after i corrected the problem its been working fine
but if your freezer still doen't work let me know...

also if your prob. isn't like mine then it could of been something else like defrost mode was running too long... compressor didnt come on
tstat stuck closed... timer mode stuck in cycle...

let me know so i can go over again if you need more help

When I shut my freezer door, the freezer makes a hissing sound for roughtly 15 seconds, during which, the freezer door wont open. At the moment there is no food in it, could that be the problem?


the auto defrost fan is drawing the air out to cut down on frost buildup....when you do put food in freezer use vacuum sealer to stop freezer burn and keep portions seperate,easier to rotate food for consumption.also frozen meat can be kept for upto a year at minus 18/20c
