Help, freezer turning to ice block

6 posts in this topic

I have a Whirlpool upright freezer and it is collecting frost and growing into an ice block overnight. I had this problem last year, and thought it might be a gasket issue, so I put some weather stripping around the freezer face, just a bit outside of the door's width when closed. This acted as an exterior gasket and fixed the issue. Well, it has started again. When ever I open the freezer, everything is frozen, but at the top of the door frame, there are always water droplets hanging that are not frozen. Is this a sure sign of something specific, and is there a fix?

Sounds like you might need to replace the door gasket.

The door gasket looks as though it is actually anchored behind the door panel. Does it sound correct that I would have to unscrew the door panel from the inside, and set the gasket underneath the inside door panel or am I totally off here?
