SOURCE: Top Shelf of Freezer Not Cooling

sounds like you may have a refridgerant blockage in the system. it may need a regas to see if it can be unblocked, as this is not a quick job it may cost you but phone around on the cost/feasibility of it. it may be just as well to get a new or second hand freezer.

Red light is indicating temp is too high, this can be caused by a variety of reasons.
You need to call an engineer to sort the problem out.

Is the condenser clean? If it is you may have a refrigerant leak or an inefficient compressor.

It soungs like you may have compressor going bad or a freon leak. Being a 1970 it would not be cost effective to repair.

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

Try turning the temperature setting down to a lower setting. The top shelves will always be the ones hardest to freeze, as heat rises, cold falls.

Top 3 shelves don't freeze


Cold air sinks. If evaporator temp is not low enough only the items on bottom of freezer will get cold and possibly freeze - stuff on top will not.
Throw a digital thermometer in there towards the top shelves and I bet your temps are high. Low refrigerant will cause this; furthermore, if you leave the refrigerator door open by accident, the refrigerator will never shut off, the freezer evaporator will freeze over with a block of ice, and the freezer temps will be higher. If that is what happened, simply unplug the unit and allow it to self defrost and then turn it back on for proper operation and make sure that the refrigerator door is properly closed!

Top shelves in freezer not freezing food. Also no ice from ice maker. Seems cold air has stopped coming out of top vent


We had the same problem with our refrigerator just yesterday. Defrosting (even tho frost-free) cleared up the airflow problem-- If it's frost-free, when it defrosts enough to allow air flow, the automatic defrost can take over. Cause was stored food blocking the vent between the freezer and lower part of fridge.

Freezer Will not freeze in some areas


Check the door gasket near those shelves.

Make sure the condenser fins or tubes have adequate air flow for cooling (it looks a bit like a small but fat car radiator). In most freezers, this will be in the bottom in the back. You may have to remove a vented cover to check this. Usually there is a fan blowing air through the condenser. Carefully vacuum out any dirt in the condenser (the fins are delicate and bend easily), and verify that the fan runs smoothly when the compressor is running.

Put a thermometer in the freezer right by the cold air inlet to verify that the refrigerant is doing its job. It should read 0 degrees F. or below (-18 degrees C). If it doesn't get down that far, the compressor needs to be recharged or replaced.

If the door has been hit hard (somebody falling and slamming into it) the door insulation may be damaged there. Check to see if the outside of the door feels cold there compared to the rest of the door. If it does, the door needs to be repaired or replaced.

I have severe ice forming in my freezer.


Hi,

On this unit the shelves are the cooling coils and carry the refrigerant (freon) through the system. They will attract the warm moist air by design, so if you have an air leak in the door or elsewhere it will tend to build up there first.

This being said you need to check something else first. Make sure the other shelves are cold. If they are frosted and cold like normal then you most likely have a door that is not closing all the way or a bad seal. If the lower shelves are not cold then you have a system problem, typically a refrigerant (freon) leak that is causing the top shelf to absorb most of the work and not enough refrigerant to flow to the bottom shelves.

I hope this helps

Defroster leaks


you have a cloged evap. drain. the rf is defrosting properly but with the drain be clogged the water has to go somewhere which is generally in the crisper draws on top and bottom models. two way to clear up this issue. turn rf OFF for at least 48 to 72 hrs. to allow the drain to de-ice or take matters into your own hands and take the back panel off of the freezer and using boiling hot water pour it down the evap. drain tube until it flows like you just flushed a tiolet

Freezer frost


An upright freezer that is not frost free will have the coils in the shelves (shelves are non-removeable) and that is where the frost will buildup.  If your model is like this then it will have to be defrosted periodically.  If your not sure then give me the entire model # from the sticker inside the freezer and I will look it up for you.
