Question about Whirlpool 19.6 cu. ft. Commercial Freezer EV201NXM
Our ev201nxm is 3 and a half years old. we have problems with it only in the summer when we turn our swamp cooler on.(we live in the desert) the door doesn't seem to shut and the vacuum doesn't work, so the freezer starts to ice up. this happens every summer, as fall comes and we use the swamp cooler less, and after defrosting, the freezer works fine and the vacuum seals the door. why? i've defrosted in the summer and it ices right back up/door doesn't seal.
I have a EVL201NXRQ05 upright whirlpool. It was purchased in Nov 2008 in the Summer of 2009 the gasket was leaking at the top of the door. The gasket on this door snaps into place (no hardware needed). The problem is the door was bowed in the middle pulling the gasket down and away from the metal frame of the freezer - to the point the magnets in the gasket would not touch in the middle of the opening. I requested a new door while under warrantry. The door did not appear to be repairable it is a glued/foamed-inplace assembly. The new door looked straight when I installed it last summer and now it is bowed but not yet leaking. Whirlpool has a design / manufacture problem with this door design. I have received an extended warranty option from Whirlpool this past week 4 months after the factory warranty has expired. I suspect they know they have any issue, but not much is written about it. I may end up buying the extended warranty, but first I'm going to where I bought it to complain.

The lower hinge on each door
may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this
assist in closing the door. If it’s wore out and doesn’t work the door may not
seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if
it rises up when opened.
The gasket should be tight enough to securely hold a dollar bill all the way around.
