Check the door gasket for seal by closing the door on a dollar bill or some other stiff thin paper. As you slide it around the door it should have resistance.

Frigidaire upright freezer door will not seal


Hi Chris, this is AP! Thank you for your post.

I understand you are having trouble with the door sealing on your upright freezer. Many times this can be caused by the freezer not being leveled. If the freezer is not leveled during installation, the door may be misaligned and not close or seal properly, causing cooling, frost, or moisture problems. To level your upright freezer use a carpenter's level to level the freezer from front-to-back. Adjust the plastic leveling feet in front, 1/2 bubble higher, so that the door closes easily when left halfway open. I hope this information has been helpful.

Since you didn't give a model number, I don't know if it is frost free or not. If it is, then you have a problem with you defrost system: defrost heater, thermostat or defrost timer.

It also sounds like your door seal is not making solid contact and most air is leaking into the freezer.

If your unit is a frost free, then water should drain down and out.

Upright freezer, non-frost free. We are having to defrost it frequently as in monthly. We used to do it once a year if needed. Frosts up quickly, especially on ceiling with snowflakes falling from...


. More than likely you have a bad freezer door seal gasket . If the freezer door does not completely seal when closed , the outside (humid) air enters the inner compartment. As the air is cooled , the water molecules freeze and form the frost you are experiencing . Only one of two things can be wrong . It is either the seal itself , or the door is warped due to excessive force or bad door hinges keeping it from closing properly . There is one more possibility but only if the door has a mechanical latch . If this is the case , the latch might need to be adjusted or replaced .

Frigidare Model No. FFU1464DW2 is leaking water on ground floor, can you tell me where to find the drain pan and what is causing this? Many thanks.


Most likely it is leaking because the drain in the back of the freezer is clogged. The most likely source of excessive water drainage is a bad door seal which causes frost to build up.

Frost free freezer with ice in the bottom and water dipping off bottom door hinge


Frost Free Freezer have an automatic defrost, which is essentially a heating element which melts any ice. If your door seals are in poor condition or something is preventing the door from sealing the ambient air may be melting the ice more than the drain can accommodate. Check the drain in the bottom of the freezer. Humidity can also cause more water to accumulate, especially if the door seals are not sealing.

Upright freezer door inside developing ice


The door seal is at fault. Regardless of the small tear it is not sealing well.
Take a dollar bill and close it in the door. Then pull on the bill to feel resistance.
You will find it pulls easily in some place. That is where your air leak is that is causing the condensation.
Do this about every 6 inches all the way around the seal.

Frost in Kenmore frost free


Although you say the seal is fine, this is almost certainly due to air getting in. With the door closed check that there isn't a tiny gap with a strip of thin card or plastic. Of course if air is getting in then it must also be getting out somewhere else so probe all around the seal.
