Whirlpool Freezer Frost Build-Up
« on: July 13, 2013, 07:29:13 AM »
We have a relatively new Whirlpool W10326799A Upright Freezer.  Initially we had it in the garage but when the summer temps hit extreme, it struggled badly and ice built up on the back wall (interior).  We brought it into the house, sorted it out and it runs fine and maintains temp.
Problem:  Some frost skims over the vents on the interior back wall of the freezer.  Is this normal or a problem?  The directions don't address this in the troubleshooting guide.
Thanks!

Check door gaskets and make sure they close ok.Model # is not right.Frost maybe a problem with it not defrosting as i guess it,s a self defrosting freezer.Model and serial # should be on tag together.

Gaskets are good.  The fan appears to be running...

Do you still see frost on the vent in freezer as this is not normal?If it is not defrosting it will frost the whole back freezer panel and ice cream will be soft.Soft ice cream is a good indicator that something is wrong.May want to buy a thermometer and check temp. in freezer.Just double check gasket from top to bottom and make sure there is no air leaking into freezer.May have to lay on floor to see if bottom gaskets are closing ok.

If the gasket isn't tight, how do you adjust the door/gasket?

I see when i look up your model at appliance part pro is changes it to another model that is a refrigerator and freezer combo.You say this is just a straight freezer right?My other part sources say bad model number.But gasket and what i told you applies.
