Ice and frost inside frostless freezer
I have a Frigidaire freezer that has ice and frost forming inside the top shelf of the door and the ceiling of the main freezer. I have heard it might be the seal has gone bad and air is entering. If so, is the seal something i can replace or will the repairman have to come out for a visit? If not the seal what causes the ice to form? The freezer is only a few years old. Thanks for any help and advise.

they are probably refering to the rubber seal around the edge of the freezer and fridge doors. where the seal contacts the fridge are they dirty or have anything on the surface or are they cracked. when you close the fridge can you see any gaps? you should be able to get replacements at an appliance parts store. what is the freezer and fridge set on for temperature?

How old are the kids and why do they eat so many Popsicles?:)

The freezer is an upright and no refrig. the temp is set at -5 , . i dont see any cracks or gaps in the seal. it is fairly clean. no kids...and no popsicles around. the door doesnt get opened very much. Is the seal very hard to replace? Something i can do?

If that gasket seals all the way around-just look at it to tell. there's a service flash for repair. contact a servicer who does Fridg'.
