Is it please possible to describe the problem with your Whirlpool freezer a bit clearly.

I am guessing that you are getting some sort of icey snow in the top portion of the upright freezer.

without knowing how old the freezer is or how long you have been having the ice problem, it is hard to provide a proper solution.

My guess is that air is leaking into the freezer and the snow is being formed by the moisture in the air. You may have to clean the door gasket or replace it if the seal is not proper.

    the freezer is 1 yr old . i noticed ther is ice on the gaskets, do i have to defrost freezer or could i just clean the gaskets.

  • Sam May 16, 2010

    Ice on gasket can be cleaned but the problem is you have leaky gasket. This is reducing the performance of the freezer.

    If it is about 1 year old you should contact the Whirlpool guys and explain the situation. Could be covered under warranty. Otherwise try to rub some vaseline (not grease) around the edge of the freezer door and see if it makes a difference to the ice collection.

    Good luck.

The first thing that you should do is plug the AC cord of the freezer and open the upper portion on top of the two doors and insert the key on the slot and turn it on. Open the freezer door and locate the temperature adjustment panel inside and adjust it to your desired temperature.

Freezer does not freez food at all. the compressor motor run but no cool air or freez! Please advise any solution

Since you say the compressor is running, you should check the evaporator coil inside the cabinet. Remove the back wall screws, and the back wall, to expose the evaporator. If its fully encased in frost, like a square block of snow, you have a defrost problem, heater, t- stat or defrost control. If frost only at the top, your fan is not running. If its bare of frost, all you see is the aluminum coil, you have a sealed system leak of refrigeratnt

Not freezing equally

Look for frost build up on back wall at bottom the auto defrost may be out. Check if the evaporator fan is blowing. If not it's stuck by something or needs replaced. If not The sealed system may have a leak or restiction causing it to only work closest to the evaporator i.e. the lower shelf.
