Question about Jenn-Air JCD2295HES Side by Side Refrigerator
My 6-year-old Frigidaire upright freezer will only freeze some of the stuff on the shelf’s after 12 hours... The door was inadvertently cracked open the other day and that was when the problem started. Door was then closed but stuff failed to totally freeze. I then removed food, removed power and vented for 24 hrs. After plugged back, in temp reading on digital thermometer reads below thirty but still uneven freezing. Another concern is that the sides of the freezer are almost hot to the touch... The freezer's original location had numerous boxes piled up touching left and right of the freezer because we just moved in and lacked the space. Could that have assisted in the problem?
More than likely you've got an iced up evaporater. If you look in the lower section of the freezer on the back wall, is the wall frosty or icy looking? The only way to defrost this is by taking the back wall out of the freezer and using a hair dryer on it (being careful not to melt the plastic liner) or to just empty the whole thing and let it sit with the doors open for a few days. Be prepared for water to leak out from under it however as the ice melts and overflows the drain tray in the bottom of the fridge. Good Luck!

You may end up respraying the door, but here goes.-
First mechanically remove as much of the rust as you can with an old screwdriver or similar scraper. Then use coarse emery cloth - 80 -120 grit untill all you're left with is shiny metal with rust pits.
You may need to go out further than you think - about 1" all round.
Then use a paint- on de-rusting fluid from vehicle products supplier. When all rust is black or dissapeared, use a zinc primer on all the bare metal. (this will stop it reacuring)
Then either spray the area with an "appliance white" aerosol or squirt it into the cap, and use a paintbrush.
If you are spraying it, open all house windows and doors, cut a mask from newspaper- then tape it to the fridge. Use blankets , plastic dustsheet or old sheets to protect things, and spray it from 12" in several very light coats.
When done, "polish" with T cut - which should remove the rust stain too.
Seal the area of the original leak with a white or clear silicone - and sort the original leak out.
If you polish the plastic with a silicone spray, water will tend to stay put rather than seep.
