    RECENTLY WE NOTICED FROST FORMING ON INSIDE OF TOP LEFT HAND SIDE OF
    THE DOOR, APPROXIMATELY 2" FROM THE SEAL. IT IS ABOUT 5 1/2 YEARS
    OLD. THE MAGNETIC SEAL APPEARS TO BE SEALING VERY WELL, IS CLEAN,
    APPEARS TO BE IN EXCELLENT SHAPE. THE FROST RUNS ALONG APPROXIMATELY
    1/2 OF THE TOP OF THE INSIDE OF THE DOOR TOWARDS THE LEFT HAND SIDE.
    IT IS A FROST FREE MODEL.

    THE UNIT IS OTHERWISE OPERATING OK, KEEPS TEMP AT ZERO DEGREES. MY ACTUAL MODEL IS A FRIGIDAIRE FFU20FC6AW4

It might have an insulation problem from the factory. or it could have a door seal problem. if it is under warranty i would use it because this problem will will lead to more problem in the future.

Top coil in upright freezer icing up


its a manual defrost freezer, it is normal to ice up, if it is unusually more than you have noticed over the past 40 years, see if the door liner is cracked around the screws under the gasket, if so put some washers there to reseal the door liner

I have 16.7 upright Frigidaire Ultrafreeze freezer, Model AFFU1766DW3 & SERIAL #WB51720061, manufactured 04/05 that I purchased new 11/05. Water was on the floor next the the freezer but the light on...


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

The top shelf in my upright freezer ices up badly; but the rest of the freezer is great - no ice! What causes this and is there something I can put on that shelf to keep the ice from building up.


If this is the type of freezer where the shelves are the evaporator coils, the coolant goes through the shelves(tubing) and the formation of frost is normal and has to be manually defrosted.All the shelves should be as cold asd the top one. The fact that just one has any frost may indicate that it is low on freon. If this is the case you should notice that the freezer doesn't get cold enought.

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.

Top & middle shelves COVERED with frost/ice, not middle


That is normal. The refrigerant runs through those shelves. They are the evaporator side of the unit.That is where the freezing effect comes from.
Check door seals for leaking air.
Keep door openings to a minimum.
Get in there and get out.
Those things will help prolong frost/ice buildup.

My woods upright freezer keeps frosting up at the top with several inches of frost. It is a manual defrost freezer. Any suggestions?


check your door seal, by closing the door on a strip of newspaper all round the seal. this fault is usually air getting inside the freezer, it rises to the top making thick ice or snow.
