Upright Freezer self defrosting

I had a problem with freezer not sucking the air out when door is closed. I found that drain was frozen and deiced. It worked fine after that for about 1-1/2 years. Now it is not sucking out air again. I repeated steps again. check t- stat setting and coil not frozen and it is still not sucking air out. Need your HELP.

THE (SUCKING AIR) OCCURS WHEN THE TEMP IS VERY LOW IN THE FREEZER AND YOU LET WARM AIR IN BY OPENING THE DOOR. WHEN THE DOOR IS CLOSED, THE WARM AIR IS COOLED CAUSING A VACUUM IN THE FREEZER. IF THE DOOR SEAL HAS A LEAK AROUND IT, THE SUCKING SOUND WILL NOT TAKE PLACE. CHECK THE DOOR SEAL FOR A GAP AT ONE OF THE CORNERS OR ALONG THE SIDES,BACK, BOTTOM, OR TOP.IF THE SEAL IS O.K., HOW IS THE TEMP? IF THE TEMP SEEMS WARM, YOU MAY NEED TO CHECK THE SEALED SYSTEM. LOOK AT THE FROST PATTERN ON THE EVAPORATOR. IS IT COMPLETE AND UNIFORM? IS ONLY PART OF THE EVAPORATOR FROSTED BACK? IF THE ENTIRE EVAPORATOR IS FROSTED BACK UNIFORMLY, THE SEALED SYSTEM IS O.K.

Everything in our freezer is frozen solid except for the ice cream which is soft and mushy, the freezer is only about 3-4 years old and we checked and it is turned up to the coldest setting, any ideas what...


If this is a self defrosting model make sure that you don't have frost build up on the back wall of the freezer causing the air not to circulate like it should. If you do have frost build up other items will eventually start thawing as well. If this is the case you have a defrost problem.

If this is not a self defrosting model then make sure it does not need defrosting.

You normally will notice ice cream being soft before you notice other things thawing.

Also make sure the door is shutting good and you may try putting the ice cream in a different location.

Air flow is very important. Make sure the vents in the back where the air blows are not restricted. Check to make sure any of the food is blocking the door from closing all the way or in the way of the door seal.

Take a look at the back wall near the bottom of the freezer, if you see frost build up on it you may have a defrost problem. Look for frost around the door on the inside liner or door shelves, if this is found then you have a door sealing problem.

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

Was the door left open for a long period of time.? Sometimes this causes so much ice that it re freezes and can't clear the drain. The only solution is to unplug and let sit with doors open for at least 24 hours. to get all the ice off the coils. Then use a pipe cleaner on the drain then use a turkey baster to force water through. then a mild bleach solution. Check the door gaskets if they are ripped or loose or the door warped and not sealing tight this will also cause this problem. If this still doesn' t solve the problem it is probably a defrost problem Usually the timer or defrost thermostat.

Door seal


If the door was left open you may have frozen the evaporator (on a frost free). I would suggest defrosting it as soon as possible and make sure the door doesnt get left open again. If it is not frost free it may just be that it is still trying to recover the temp it had lost by an open door. Hope this helps.
