Gladiator Freezerator wont stay frozen in the bottom portion. It will go to temp when temp is mved, but then start to warm up. Why?


If the bottom freezer section of the Gladiator Freezerator is thawing out the usual cause is from the coils in the back of the top refrigerator section being iced up. The ice blockage prevents the fan from circulating cold air into the bottom freezer section. These units have a design flaw due to the defrost drain freezing up preventing water from draining out from under the coil. The long-term solution is to remove the back wall of the refrigerator section to get to the coil, thoroughly defrost the coil making sure the drain tube is clear, then wrap a couple turns of #12 or #14 copper house wire around the bottom of the defrost heater element and run it a few inches into the drain tube. Advise unplugging the unit when you do this.

I've had this fix on my Gladiator for a couple years and it has been working perfectly ever since. The freezer stays a constant 0 degrees F and no more thawed out food.

Sounds like the freezer fan may not be working properly. This fan must rotate to move cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator.

This fan is probably behind an access plate in the freezer. You likely could hear it if it's running. Remove the plate and look at it to be sure. If it's not turning, you will need to replace the fan motor. These are readily available.

What you started out with was a defrost issue,adding freon made your problem worse,pressure on the low side when fully charged should be around 0 to 3 lbs.
 the most common problem with theses units is the adaptive defrost control sits in the refrigerator section top right corner above the white plastic cover.part # 61005988 runs about $70.
 Second most common defrost issue is the defrost thermostat # 61006199 runs around $45 comes wired in with the heater assy sits behind the wall in the back of the freezer. But first you need to get someone to evacuate the system and put in the right charge it will be on the model number tag on the ceiling of the fridge it's somewhere between 4 and 6 onces not pounds.

The freezer is warming up


If you found something lodged in the door that may have kept it open for a while, i suspect frost formed on the coils behind the panel. Frost will not let air pass through the coils to the refrigerator side. This is one of the most common problems there is. If you look through the louvers on the rear panel that is for sure your problem. It most likely just needs thawed out. After it is thawed out, your normal defrosting routine will take over again and hopefully you will be trouble free again.

ICe build-up on coils and frezer does not freeze after a few weeks from thawing.


Check the defrost timer which may be behind the kick-plate, inside the control panel or an Adaptive Defrost Control (motherboard) on the back.
