Question about Kenmore 7.5 cu. ft. / 212 liter Upright Freezer 24701

1 Answer

Our '93 Model 106 -9235508, serial # VSC3690738, 7.5 cu.ft. freezer has for couple of weeks had an ice build up on the inside top part of the door and along the inside edge of the door above the handle. We noticed that the top outside door hinge has a space of approximately 1/2" showing and we don't recall if it has always been that way. We thought perhaps the magnetic seal is not hitting properly and that is allowing the ice to form.. We have made sure that nothing is blocking the door from closing tight. Any suggestions? Thank you.

My frigidaire automatic defrost upright freezer gets ice build-up at the top right at the front any suuggestions


This is just a general answer but it may mean that the door seal is leaking. Try running a dollar bill under the seal to see if that area is looser than the rest of the door seal.
Look inside the freezer for model number.

I have a maytag upright freezer. It is on the coldest setting. A bowl of water on the bottom shelf freezes overnight. The middle one is freezing, but not entirely. The top one is still water, but cold....


check to make sure door seals are touching the frame all round, could be an air leak,also make sure there is no ice build up around the inside casing. if so fully defrost unit,clean all vents/drain pipe, then turn back on and leave it for 24hrs (freezers work beast when full).....and door shut..how many times have you closed door after them????

I am experiencing frost build up on the top part of the door as well as the top part of the inside of the freezer. all other areas are fine


You have an air leak. Usually right where you frost build up is, however since hot air rises, sometimes this leak can be anywhere. Make sure your door closes tightly and your gaskets are clean and making good contact. You may have to adjust the gasket, adjust the door, or replace the door gasket. If there is ice on the floor of the freezer, you have a plugged drain line. In very rare instances we have found, where the freon lines enter the freezer, in the back or under the freezer, missing or fallen refrigeration putty that seals around the lines.

Very possible the door seal is not properly sealed. Warm inflowing air onto a cold coil will cause ice build up at the lid.
