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

We have an upright Commercial Grade heavy duty Imperial Freezer, model # UL4000ECW2, purchased a little over 10 years ago. Today I noticed that everything in it is thawing and when I close it, it no longer...


the suction noise is not something that will happen all the time.
check the current draw on the compressor and make sure it is in between 1.2 and 1.6 amps.also look at you evaporator coils and make sure there is no excessive frost build up.If there is ice build up then you need to defrost it check the heating element and defrost timer and make sure they are in proper working order.also check the evaporator fan and make sure it is working when the unit is in a cooling mode.

We have an imperial upright ''commercial grade'' freezer. The top shelf has 2 inches of ice on it. The rest of the freezer is not cold. Door seal is ok. freezer is currently unplugged and defrosting.


just to be sure that your door is sealing properly, put a flashlight into the freezer and turn off all of the lights in the room to see if there are any openings in the seal. Iam suggesting you this coz sometimes a small opening may pass our eyes easily....

if the door is sealing properly......
If this is the type of freezer where the shelves are the evaporator coils, the coolant goes through the shelves(tubing) and the formation of frost is normal and has to be manually defrosted.All the shelves should be as cold asd the top one. The fact that just one has any frost may indicate that it is low on freon. If this is the case you should notice that the freezer doesn't get cold enought just like you said... so check your freon levels.

This could also be because of the thermostat not sensing when the fridge reaches its set temperature and as a result of this the compressor will keep on running and build-up of ice will occur.

Follow the advices in the order prescribed above and you should be set

Frigidaire upright freezer ffu21k2cw1 has frost on the top shelf , and on a thin coil leading up to that shelf, but no where else. The freeze feels warm. We have tried to vaccuum the bottom of it, but that...


I have bad news for you. EAch of your shelves is part of the evaporator coil. This is the coil where the liquid refrigerant expands into a vapor. If only one shelf has frost, and the other shelves no longer do, then you have a low side sealed system leak of your refrigerant. You could have it repaired, but that is a major service call, and to have it repaired properly to EPA regulations, it is quite expensive.
sorry

Ice collects on the bottom of my frost free woods freezer


im not sure if i answered this one before. but this sounds like a blocked drain, the drain is located midway behind the shelves, you can take away the catch tray and poke a coat hanger down this hole hole to dislodge the blockage.

Danby upright freezer 1166w top and bottom shelves frosted in none on middle shelf could i have a problem


Probably there's a freon leak (refrigerant) that has to be fixed (remember this is a seal system and shouldn't leak)and then recharged.

Top & middle shelves COVERED with frost/ice, not middle


That is normal. The refrigerant runs through those shelves. They are the evaporator side of the unit.That is where the freezing effect comes from.
Check door seals for leaking air.
Keep door openings to a minimum.
Get in there and get out.
Those things will help prolong frost/ice buildup.

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.
