I have a Frigidaire freezer that is about 5 years old. I get ice build up inside the top of the door. The door appears to be closed.


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

1.) Due you have the freezer in your garage? Freezers and refrigerators are not designed for the drastic temperature change through the seasons. If you had a service contract, your contract would be canceled.

2.) If you can run a piece of paper between the top door gasket and the freezer body you do not have a tight seal. Repair - Recondition the gasket. Wet the door gasket with water, with a hairy dryer heat the gasket while genteelly pulling the gasket out to expand with a spatula.

3.) If the gasket is good, then you are getting moisture either thru the top front of the unit or the top of the door.
a.) Inspect the liner where the ice build-up is. Are there cracks? Repair - Seal cracks with a good silicone adhesive.
b.) Inspect the upper door section and the front top of the freezer for possible leaks in the joints. Here again seal with adhesive.
c.) If the top of the door is expanded, then you have moisture in the door and need to replace the door. You will never get the moisture out of the insulating material.

My kenmore is not pressure sealing


the problem is that the compressor is not working
call a technician for a proper diagnosis
and it is not a pressure sound but a vacuum sound as the door when closed drops the temp inside the unit and that creates a vacuum making the door temporarily hard to open

Our upright freezer door will not seal tight with a vacuum anymore. The freezer fills up with snow from the air drawn in. I have defrosted it and cleaned the seal. What should I do now?


That could be one of two things, one the door is not aligned properly and more important the gasket has failed and needs replacement. The snow as you call it is ice condensed from the atmospheric air that is getting by the gasket. You may want to check the door gasket and sealing surfaces especially in the area of the "snow".
Good luck,

Ev201nxm door doesn't seal/ices up


I have a EVL201NXRQ05 upright whirlpool. It was purchased in Nov 2008 in the Summer of 2009 the gasket was leaking at the top of the door. The gasket on this door snaps into place (no hardware needed). The problem is the door was bowed in the middle pulling the gasket down and away from the metal frame of the freezer - to the point the magnets in the gasket would not touch in the middle of the opening. I requested a new door while under warrantry. The door did not appear to be repairable it is a glued/foamed-inplace assembly. The new door looked straight when I installed it last summer and now it is bowed but not yet leaking. Whirlpool has a design / manufacture problem with this door design. I have received an extended warranty option from Whirlpool this past week 4 months after the factory warranty has expired. I suspect they know they have any issue, but not much is written about it. I may end up buying the extended warranty, but first I'm going to where I bought it to complain.

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.

Door seal


i wouldn't worry about vacuum seal. door gaskets contain a low powered magnet around the entire face for "contact" seal, id look into perhaps something placed on one of the shelves or door blocking the door from closing as tightly as you remembered. if you have a problem with that gasket. it would have to be physically ripped and where it didn't make contact you would have an influx of warm air resulting in ice balls forming inside door liner adjacent to seal
