Excessive frosting building up quickly around the lid on my 5 year old Norfrost Aura top-opening frezeer. I do not know the capacity, but the outside dimensions are 54x54x84mm. The control is set at 60% towards max. No other specs, re model number, etc. visible.

Model EEV-163F Whirlpool Upright Freezer. Defrosted this week, already seeing ice buildup. Freezer is cold and appears to run fine, but frost buildup seems excessive this quickly. Frost throughout


This freezer is not frost free. Being an upright limiting the amount and frequency of opening the door will reduce the build up of ice. Ice is expected and depending on humidity and quality of seal around door affects the amount of ice.

Using a thin ribbon check the seal integrity around the door. Confirm nothing is prohibiting the full closure of the door.

Adjust door if necessary. Replace seal if defective. Freeze open unsealed items in a frost free freezer before locating frozen food in this unit.

These units are likely located in the garage where the humidity is high. If used only as needed planning transfer between this and the kitchen unit frost can be minimized.

Being a conventional freezer not frost free freezer burn is less likely and frozen food will not dry out as quickly. Confirm that the freezer maintains about 0 degree F.

This unit is likely more efficient and will maintain the food frozen longer in the event of power outage.

Hope this helps?

Chest freezer only freezing at the bottom half of freezer but the goods in the basket aren't frozen, its a year old


Going to have to assume a lot of things... because you put no make or model... (such as self defrosting).

After you have checked that there is NOT excessive FROST BUILD UP (prevents air flow & causes same symptoms...
(defrost issue: different trouble ... comment me back)

Without any mention of EXCESSIVE FROST (which would indicate poor door seal/alignment...
(Not DEFROST FAILURE (dry defrost pan)...

That leaves us with your EVAP FAN...

There are a couple of reasons evaporator fans fail:

(you just eliminated old age in your question... "year old")

- Defective is still a possibility (replace)

- Ice/frost blocked (Full manual DEFROST)

- Physical blockage ((inspect: usually wire or POOR install.

Check your manufacturer's parts list and shop around for the BEST PRICE... There NO variances in quality (just price).

GOOD freezers work because of excellent air flow...!!

And ALWAYS REMEMBER TO TAKE PICURES & REMOVE POWER BEFORE fiddling with every appliance.

Good luck...
(I check in daily... Please do comment if you need me)

My Kenmore chest freezer is 2 years old and ice builds up on the inside right wall and the back wall is this a frost free unit or do I always need to defrost it? Modle # 253-15502


Hmmm, sounds like outside airflow to me. Put a flashlight in there, close the door and look for a glow around the gasket. If you find light then that is where the air is getting in from.

My westinghouse leaks water. It's 16 years old, so if it's some major problem I'm ok with it and I'll get a new clothes washer. On the other hand I would like to open up the washer and


The back and sides are one piece. The front comes off (two clips under top, one on each side about 2 or 3" in from outside - two screws on bottom directly below clips). The top will lift up on the rear hinges, the front lifts about 0.5" and comes off.

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 .

The lid on our new Norfrost chest freezer does not fit well causing frost build up


start with a spirit level and ensure the freezer is level all round (with the lid up.)if the feet are not adjustable, use spacers,then close the lid and if you have to,use a hot wet cloth to mould the seals to fit correctle(flat to frame) check with a thin piece of paper to ensure no air leaks.do this before you try to adjust the hinges,

Water coming out of the lid of a Kenmore 5 cu. Freezer


Funny. We just spent an hour trying to figure out the same problem with our Kenmore. It is the third or fourth time that we've noticed water on the floor under the freezer, but the first time that we've been able to track it to the lid.

The only thing that makes sens to me is that this problem may be happening when our freezer has a frost buildup around the top of the unit which doesn't allow the lid to close perfectly snug. I'm thinking that this causes a bit of melt in whatever frost may be inside the lid from regular air circulation around the unit. It runs out the back of the lid when it opens.

Check that there is no frost around the rim of the freezer that may be causing a slight (it only takes a very small opening to allow warmer air to circulate under the lid) irregularity in the lid seal.

My AEG Arctis freezer is not freezing at the correct temperature and seems to stick on -11 even if I put the fast freeze on.I have turned it off for 24 hours and on again but it still does not hold the...


The freezer is probably in need of defrosting. This usually occurs when the freezer has been over packed. It needs to be able to ahve air flow through it, there are holes in the back of the freezer and a defrosting element at the top and they need to be clear in order to keep it frost free. It happend to me and we called an engineer out. solved it by using hair dryer to defrost it.

Freezer frost


An upright freezer that is not frost free will have the coils in the shelves (shelves are non-removeable) and that is where the frost will buildup.  If your model is like this then it will have to be defrosted periodically.  If your not sure then give me the entire model # from the sticker inside the freezer and I will look it up for you.
