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.

The top two shelves are not freezing and the food on those shelves and that area of the door have defrosted. The bottom seems to be freezing. I can hear the fan running and do not feel any drafts from


Obviously that freezer is not achieved the required temperature. There are several reasons for that:
- Defrosting system is not working, which leads to accumulation too much ice on the evaporator that prevents heat transfer and reduces air circulation despite the fan is running.
- The problem with draining condensate after defrosting cycle which also leads to accumulation of ice.
- Leaking gas from the cooling system (reduced cooling capacity)
- Faulty compressor

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer2_bing.gif and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...

Bottom 2 shelves not freezing


if it does not freeze it is because the refrigeration system is low on freon. this will cause the bottom shelfs to not freeze...
you have to decide if it is worth putting the freon back in (they wont fix it because very hard to find)
so you could spend anywhere from $80 to $150 to get the freon back in... then after a while it will leaks out and you will have the same problem
why dont you instead move that money to a new freezer

hope this was helpful

Rack on freezer is not working


low on freon. buy new . as freon level drops , ability to feed all shelves falls off. the last shelf to freeze is usually the first one to not freeze ,as charge goes away. time for new, cost to fix to great.

Upright freezer.Two shelves freeze up. One doesn't. Why and is this a problem


look to see if the shelves are in fact not shelves but evaporator coils . if the shelf is connected to small tubing, then that tubing flows freon that freezes the shelf. if its clearly not connect to any tubing or piping then its just a shelf and gets residual cold from evaporator shelves. if it is connected to tubing like the others and not getting cold then you have whats called a restriction. . particles have plugged the tubing and no freon is feeding the shelf. if that is happening then consider having a pro recover the gas , unplug the tubing , replace the drier and recharge it. if its an older unit and you are getting by then maybe not worth the expense.
