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?

Hello from the San Antonio area! I have a 20 cu/ft commercial grade Whirlpool frost free upright freezer (model #EV201NXMQ05). I too have the same frost issue on the top shelf and door shelf on top (see pics). I have recently replaced the seal (twice) after stretching it out in the sun for 1 week on each side. I also releveled the door and replaced the defrost timer (#WP3-81329) as the unit is 15 years old. The unit maintains a -4 degree temperature w/no problem and the seal looks like it's making good contact. Please help before it freezer burns my food, thanks in advance.
