Question about Frigidaire 20.3 cu. ft. Upright Freezer GLFU2067F

1 Answer

Frigidaire LFFH2067DW3 I have had several service calls for this freezer due to frost and ice build up on the top of the top shelf of the door. The first technician removed the light shield and indicated that the air does not circulate correctly with this model and that this build up is a common occurance. Did not work! The second technician now tells me that he has sealed the defuser and adjusted vents but the manufacturer is now saying that the build up is because the freezer is in my garage (I live in southeast Georgia). My daughter has the same freezer - in their garage, no problem. I purchased this freezer on July 1, 2007 but this build up did not begin until May of this year. Where do I go from here.

    Same exact issue. The tech said it is (now) a known issue and it requires a "Door Kit" (no part number given to me) which is back ordered. He suggested I contact the parts department, who then wondered why I was calling them as they don't talk to customers (go figure). Going to try and call Frigidaire direct again.

    I bought same model Nov 2007 @ Lowe's, have had door insulation added & new seal installed, still forms frost on top of door and freezer. Now runs almost all the time, and seal is not keeping door shut unless I put something in front of door to hold it shut. Frigidaire customer service is terrible, they don't want to fix what I am finding is a common problem. My repair person said they fix 1 or 2 of these freezers a week. Want new freezer but not this brand. Lowe's is no help either. Anyone else have better luck getting this resolved? Sabine

Roger ,
If the problem started prior to July 2008 and you had service document it!
call Frigidaire and ask for a supervisor!
Tell them that you want it replaced or you will not buy the, Frigidaire Pro stainless steel kitchen that you planned to get in 2 months when you remodel you kitchen!
They call it a PUSH PULL!
They contact me or some other dealer and pay them replace it for you and it includes all charges that they pay to the dealer!
0 dollars for you! I do this often!
I KNOW THIS WILL WORK!
Neil

My frigidaire automatic defrost upright freezer gets ice build-up at the top right at the front any suuggestions


This is just a general answer but it may mean that the door seal is leaking. Try running a dollar bill under the seal to see if that area is looser than the rest of the door seal.
Look inside the freezer for model number.

I have severe ice forming in my freezer.


Hi,

On this unit the shelves are the cooling coils and carry the refrigerant (freon) through the system. They will attract the warm moist air by design, so if you have an air leak in the door or elsewhere it will tend to build up there first.

This being said you need to check something else first. Make sure the other shelves are cold. If they are frosted and cold like normal then you most likely have a door that is not closing all the way or a bad seal. If the lower shelves are not cold then you have a system problem, typically a refrigerant (freon) leak that is causing the top shelf to absorb most of the work and not enough refrigerant to flow to the bottom shelves.

I hope this helps

Lost vacumn, door popped open alarm on


If is the type of freezer where the shelves are also the evaporator(shelves are very cold and is normal to frost), the fact that only one shelf is iced would indicate the system is low on freon due to a leak. This would also explain the hot walls and compressor. It requires a service man to check the freon level and locate leak and recharge.

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.

Ice build up


You should to check the Whirlpool Gladiator Freezerator's door sealer to make sure all rubber or plastic seal very well to prevent air humidity come in to build up frost fast. Also, you have to defrost completely and wipe with cloth or paper towel to absorb all waters out and let it dry completely to prevent frost build up.

Ice build-up on the inside top of of freezer door


yea def , not normal, nor an acceptable amount of ice forming there( good pic). heres what i have been told to try and with good results
first make sure the door gasket is sealing all the way,(small gaps in ht emagnets at extreme corners) is common but with a little amount of "mortite"or "permagum can sometimes be insterted behind the corner of gasket to assist filling the void.
second a small amound of a white/clear silicone be applied to the outer perimtere of gasket, to minmize air movemnt from between gasket and door panel.
lastley in oyour second pic i see "frost free" written on a plastic air deflector. you can remove that with 3-4 screws on backside of it, and then reinstall with a small spacer so as the baffle now with sit with a 3/8in. gap between it and the top of the freezer liner.( a brass ferrel from the compression fitting of a plumbing fitting is just the right size)..... the theory behind this is to prevent the air from gatting "trapped" in the void created when the door closes-- air can now pass back and forth freely.
I hope this gives you some satisfaction if not I would advise another tech be sent who is willing to call for factore tech support( ths is where i got my info from)
