I looked at a customer's refrigerator that is frosting over in the freezer. model #ET1CHEXVQ. I did a door seal test with a slip of paper and found no real problems with it. I did see the corner of the gasket is not touching the freezer compartment. Is there any other way that warm air would be getting in their to create the frost than a bad door seal? Also can you tell me how the door seal is attached. I think it is glued on but I'm not 100% on that. If so can you tell me a good procedure for removing the old gasket and gluing the new gasket on?Thanx in advance.

Where is the frost located?

1) defrost system issue?
2) gasket issue ( i think you have the snap in type gasket. If so, you are lucky. If you cannot snap the bottom back into place, you can use a self taping screw so long as you do not screw into the face of the gasket
3) constant heat source (ice maker heater not turning off, freezer light bulb not turning off)
4) Check behind fridge for any ice maker water tube opening. Went to a service call to fix frost after two previous companies...they failed to see someone had removed tape that says "do not remove" unless ice maker installed.
5)incorrect evap fan motor pulling in air as opposed to pushing air....been any evap fan work done lately? Seen this only once and ironically was the same model fridge you are working on.
