If the frost is just around the top seal area then YES.but if the frost goes further down then the whole unit needs a full defrost (NO scrapers/hot water/steam/or any other "help")use car de icer...and dry thoroughly.also, if too full, it will frost up around the top.

Chest freezer only freezing at the bottom half of freezer but the goods in the basket aren't frozen, its a year old


Going to have to assume a lot of things... because you put no make or model... (such as self defrosting).

After you have checked that there is NOT excessive FROST BUILD UP (prevents air flow & causes same symptoms...
(defrost issue: different trouble ... comment me back)

Without any mention of EXCESSIVE FROST (which would indicate poor door seal/alignment...
(Not DEFROST FAILURE (dry defrost pan)...

That leaves us with your EVAP FAN...

There are a couple of reasons evaporator fans fail:

(you just eliminated old age in your question... "year old")

- Defective is still a possibility (replace)

- Ice/frost blocked (Full manual DEFROST)

- Physical blockage ((inspect: usually wire or POOR install.

Check your manufacturer's parts list and shop around for the BEST PRICE... There NO variances in quality (just price).

GOOD freezers work because of excellent air flow...!!

And ALWAYS REMEMBER TO TAKE PICURES & REMOVE POWER BEFORE fiddling with every appliance.

Good luck...
(I check in daily... Please do comment if you need me)

Why is there a lot of frost in my woods v15nab freezer?


On a chest freezer, frost always accumulates around the top perimeter first because the warmer moist air comes in contact with that area first once the door is opened. More frequent defrosting may be the answer.

Black and decker chest freezer on frost in the upper half of the freezer, the other half going down to the bottom is just cold with no frost and also the top of the inner part of the door is making ice.


You may have a leak of refrigerant, you may have a warm air leak when the lid is closed, or you may just need to defrost it manually. use heat ONLY, do NOT poke at the ice or frost with anything

My Freezer temp drops to 11c, I have to keep defrosting & then it`s fine for a couple of months


as its a chest freezer you have no auto defrost,so you must do it your self.make sure all food is wrapped/heat sealed bags.to stop moisture/frost from building up.use a freezer thermometer to set at
-18C and do not over fill,if you live in a high humidity area then every other month is about right.DO NOT DEFROST WITH STEAM OR HOT AIR.USE CAR DE ICER .then dry thoroughly.

Freezer builds up frost and ice too quickly.


Either the door gasket is not sealing well or the unit is low in refrigerant.

General electric 5.0 chest freezer has water coming all over the floor.


The reason this happens is because the defrost timer is not turning back on when it needs to, causing the freezer to thou out and overfill the drip tray sitting on top of the compressor. A new defrost timer should be available from the local refrigeration wholesalers in your area.
