Question about Viking Freezers

Open Question

I have an Eatons Viking Chest freezer 3-24308-009. The inside of the lid/door has a crack and there is a build up of ice inside the lid itself. I am currently defrosting the freezer and am waiting for all this lid-ice to melt. How do I tell if there has been damage to the insulation? Am I safe to assume that this ice, and the ice/frost that was on the inside of the freezer is a result of a leaking seal? And where do I get a replacement seal now that Eatons is long gone (though I'm sure it is a standard freezer that Eatons just put their label on)?

SOURCE: door liner on chest freezer broke due to ice build-up

if you can't find a replacement, use a piece of flat vinyl siding that goes on houses. You can heat it and bend it as needed, or cut it and screw the pieces to a balsa wood frame for lightweight support. Glue or epoxy probably won't work as the cold temps make them brittle but external caulking may be ok to hold the pieces together. Be sure to sand all edges and corners as the cut plastic can be sharp. If you can disassemble the unit and place the door face down, you can fill the cavity with insulating foam to help stabilize it.

I have a woods chest style deep freeze and the lid is very cold on the outside, but the sides are room temperature and the freezer works fine. Why is the lid cold and how can I fix it


Yes, the freezer temperature means the lid gets very cold. Every time you open it some moisture condenses in the lid and the outside ambient also affects it. The insulation may be beginning to break down and the ice is forming inside. It is not a major problem however and many freezers go on for years with freezing lids!

Ice crystals forming on inside front freezer panel


Very possible the door seal is not properly sealed. Warm inflowing air onto a cold coil will cause ice build up at the lid.

Freezer builds up frost and ice too quickly.


Either the door gasket is not sealing well or the unit is low in refrigerant.
