Traulsen freezer with intella true continuously frosting the evaporator coil and blocking the air flow?


Your defrost circuit ... should (about twice each day) gently warm up.. and remove the frost to an evaporation tray at the bottom of your FREEZER (refrigerator?)...

Regardless of the design...

THERE are only two reasons for excessive FROST.

- massive air intrusion (check seals & gaskets)
- defective defrost circuit (check defrost timer/controller)...

EZ trouble to fix...

Post comment reply: 7/3/2016...

In general... there are only three elements to the defrost circuit:
- 1st failure is usually the "timer" (in your case (other cases it is being replaced by the power control board (do remove power: line voltages present).
- 2nd failure (inside ... usually atop the evaporator) is the "DEFROST THERMOSTAT" (designed the keep the heating element from getting much hotter than 55 degrees Fahrenheit, ("failing" = open.. prevents the heater element from being energized at all).
- 3rd the heating element... itself goes open (usually below the evaporator (caution: line voltages on 2nd & 3rd)).

Anytime you don't feel you've got this surrounded just comment me back... I'll be around.

You need to replace the door gasket. It's leaking air causing the frost.

Eating frost in the freezer


It is probably no more risky than drinking water from a clear running stream. The frost is formed from water vapour so as it is formes it is pure. I suppose it then depends on how old it is and what has come into contact with it. It should be ok though.

I have a frigidaire freezer upright model#ffu20f9gw3


Without any additional info, there are a lot of possibilities:
1. Condenser coil (underneath unit) is dirty and clogged.
2. Compressor is failing. (need A/C tech)
3. Metering device is clogged. (need A/C tech)
4. Refrigerant charge is low. (need A/C tech)
5. Door seal is broken (frost will form around door).
6. Defrost heaters are stuck on (replace defrost timer located underneath unit at front).
7. Condenser fan has failed (underneath freezer on back).
8. Evaporator fan (inside fan) has failed (ice will form on cooling coil).

This should get you started...

If this helps you, please select YES to the first two ratings questions. Thank you, and Good Luck.

Sheet of ice forms in bottom of freezer


Frost free fidges are supposed to stay frost free because the automatically defrost regularly. When they do this they may drain water down to the bottom of your fridge. Look for a tray that catches this water underneath the unit. Make sure yo keep it emptied. If you live in a very warm climate you may be getting a lot of humidity inside. There may be a switch that you can change for lower moisture.

Small patch of ice if frost free freezer


Frost free does not mean no frost ever anywhere. It just means that there is a mechanism to defrost the evaporator on a regular basis. If there is a spot where frost is forming in the box it may just mean that a little bit of moisture that is not collected on the coil may be finding another cold spot to stick. The area where the fan blows into the cabinet is bound to be the coldest spot in the freezer therefore an ideal place to collect frost. Check the level of the unit and your door gasket to be sure the door is closing tight and true.

Is the frost build-up in my freezer normal? Why do I have ice in forming the the bottom of my frost free freezer?


The drain has most likely frozen over. It is at the bottom behind the back panel inside the freezer. You will need to remove all of the ice and run hot water down the drain until it is clear.
