Gladiator Convertable Freezer GAFZ21XXRK02

3 posts in this topic

My gladiator garage freezer is leaking water from the upper area just behind the lightbulb. I use the upper compartment as a refrigerator only (avg. temp. reads 35-40 degrees). I keep a shallow pan to catch the dripping and have no idea why this is happening (for a least 6 months). I've been lazy in finding out what is causing this-just happy that it is still working to keep the food frozen so I just empty the pan when it gets full of frozen water. It is quite full of food but I try to keep things away from the sides and back for circulation. The refrigerator setting is on the lowest cold and the freezer is on the midsetting. Also, my garage has a heater that kicks in at 60 degrees so it doesn't get colder than that. Many thanks in advance for advice.

Sounds like it has a plugged defrost drain tube. You can either unplug it for 24 hours and leave the doors open, Or you ave to remove the evaporator cover and defrost it manually with hair dryer and hot water. I have the gladiator unit at my house and it d the exact same thing. I adjusted the fridge temp a little warmer and it stopped it from happening again.
