Check the length of the defrost cycle. While in defrost, the ice and frost formed on the coil will melt and sometime turn into vapor. This vapor hits the cold surface and condenses into water droplets. When freeze goes back into freeze cycle, they freeze. Seen this many times as defrost is 45 minutes or longer and many times it is not necessary to have it that length. Next, turn off lite, go into freeze and close door. If you see lite anywhere around door, air can get in and cause a similar issue. Door should close and seal.

Check for vapor leaks at the seems and in the area where the stalactites are forming on the ceiling and below where the stalagmites are forming on the floor. It is likely that you could also have a vapor leak on the door seal causing a large inrush of moisture or a small one on the seems of the freezer. Note I am a Food Safety Auditor this is a common problem we see several times a month and it can be fixed.

You should check for air leaks around the door gasket or any other openings in the compartment such as where pipes or wiring is going through the wall. It sounds like a moisture problem from moisture being drawn into the compartment pass door gaskets or access holes.

I have a 6x6 norlake walk in freezer. The door remained open for 6-7 hours by mistake and now temperature does not go below 15 degrees. The technician told me to replace compressor as slowly temperature...


I've worked on freezers for over 20 years and have never heard of a compressor going bad because the door was left open. think about a second opinion.
Also, has the cooling coil inside the box developed and frost or ice build up? If so, it needs to be completely defrosted. If you defrost it manually, use a hose hooked up to hot water. Kill all power and hose all build up off. Remove the sheet metal housing ends and be sure there is no ice inside there too. I would go in this direction first.
IN order to kill a compressor under this condition, something really strange must have happened as anything is possible in a refrigeration system. Good luck and hope this helps.

Warning light on but food is still frozen


It may just be low on freon (coolant) or you may have a bad compressor, or some back switches to the compressor.

Amana freezer on the bottom not keeping temperature


Hi, If you had ice, there is a drain plugged in the freezer. If you had a frost build up, there is a problem with the automatic defrost.

I can help in either case. Please let me know if you need more assistance.

Mountain of ice in walk-in(floor), around the parts(ceiling)


No choice but to move your food to a secondary unit & defrost the walk-in. If you go chipping around your condenser you risk more damage. Hopefully you have seperate breakers for you walk-in vs other cold storage areas.

Freezer tempature


Depends on the product you want to keep in the freezer. Usually you want to try and stay between 0 and +10 degrees for most items. Ice Cream must be -10 degrees minimum. Any warmer and it won't keep. Hope this helps.

Good Luck
