Normally that amount of ice denotes a leak in the system, or possibly the thermostat not switching off. If the door does not seal correctly, you will also generate a lot of ice. Something tells me we are looking at a leak.

Have a upright freezer and the meat on the top shelf is thawed out but the rest of the food on the lower shelves are frozen. Is it a vent problem


Either the door seal is bad or the freezer has a refrigerant leak or a bad compressor. Best to have an appliance tech check it. It won't take him long to locate the issue.

Hotpoint fzfm151p. Bought a year ago. Worked fine up until I moved this month. My dad placed freezer in garage by mistake. Lights flashed (all) ever since it was in there. I've just moved it into the house...


Freezers have an electric motor within to pump the freezer gas around. Its possible the movement has caused a problem. Get ban appliance shop or tech to check it out.

Hi,
Yes, it does sound like you have a slight leak and a recharge is needed...
But...

Be very careful as to who you get to do that as many are not experienced enough to work on fridge units...they are very touchy and need to be serviced by someone familiar with the small refrigeration units and also someone that is licensed to use refrigerants...

FREEZER IS NOT FREEZING IT IS 18 MONTHS OLD. WE DEFROSTED IT AND IT FROZE AN ICE CUBE TRAY SO WE MOVED IT DOWN STAIRS PLUGGED IT N AND IT NOT FREEZING AGAIN????


It is possible to cause an air lock when moving an appliance by tilting it and then not allowing the refrigerent to settle before switching on. Try unplugging it and laying it on its side for a couple of minutes, then put it upright and leave it for 6 hours to settle, then plug it in again.

Chest Freezer doesn't get cold


Was this unit placed on its side or back? This can cause oil to get where it shouldn't and block freon flow. If the unit has not been moved this is not an issue. Could be the compressor but sounds more like low freon level. Most leaks happen when units are turned off for long periods. I don't ever believe in charging a deep freeze unless you can positively say you have found and fixed the leak. You can never really trust it again and the food inside is usually worth more than the freezer.

My freezer


Be sure your cords in the back are plugged in, and you shut the door completely, if you move the freezer to check if it's plugged in, don't pass out when you see all the lint!
