Question about Electrolux 21.0 Cu. Ft. Upright Freezer - Stainless-Steel
Some of the food is not completely freezing, and I've noticed ice crystals on the inside top of the freezer in one spot, and also on the door. The temp guide on the freezer indicates 0, which is what it always is and the door ajar light is not on. What could be causing this?
This is a symptom of air leaking into the freezer. The most common place is around the door. Check the door really good to make sure something is not obstructing it from closing all the way, it may be closing enough to satisfy the ajar alarm but not enough for a bit of moisture to sneak in. Look for tears or breaks in the seal. If you put a bright flashlight inside the freezer and close the door, turn off the lights in the room you may find a leak that way.

Tips for a great answer:
My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
The normal setting for a freezer is -2 to +2 degrees F., and the normal setting for the fresh food section is +35 to +40 degrees F.
You only have one source of cooling and that is your freezer. With the settings that you have, you are asking your unit to do what it is not designed to do.
The ice maker is struggling because if it is a cast steel ice cube mold, the heater beneath it is not designed for the current to break the ice cubes free @ -18 degrees F., or if you have a plastic flex ice cube mold it is too ridged to flex enough to break the ice cubes free. Normally your ice maker should dump 8-10 times in a 24 hour period.
A note on food storage. Make sure you do not overload your freezer of fresh food section to the point where food product extends beyond the edge of the shelves.
