Question about Frigidaire 14.1 cu. ft. Upright Freezer (FFU14K0DW)
The freezer temperature was around 12 degrees. Repairman came and replaced freon yesterday. Now the temperature is hovering around 22-24 degrees and I looked at the back of the freezer and noticed that one side of the evaporator is warm but the other side has frost on it and the tube coming out of it also has frost. Called the repairman just now, and he said it's probably because he put too much freon in. Will putting too much cause the temp to rise? And why the frost on one side?
Watch this video I made. this is subzero with low level of freon (almost out). same situation on all refrigerators and freezers. you can see ice at the begging of evaporator. if there would be a little more freon evaporator might of frost up at the top might frost half of evap other half would be not even cold.

If one side is frozen and the other is not in the evaporator, if may need more freon.

Refrigerators with an evaporator (called a humid plate on this type of refrigerator) in the refrigerator section are called a semi-automatic defrost. This means that the freezer section occasionally needs defrosting but the refrigerator section defrosts by a means called "heat leakage defrost". How it should work....
the cold control, (the electrical device under the dial), leaves the compressor off for long enough for the plate to melt off each cycle.
If yours is not melting off perhaps you have a faulty control or you have it set too high. hope this help

yea def , not normal, nor an acceptable amount of ice forming there( good pic). heres what i have been told to try and with good results
first make sure the door gasket is sealing all the way,(small gaps in ht emagnets at extreme corners) is common but with a little amount of "mortite"or "permagum can sometimes be insterted behind the corner of gasket to assist filling the void.
second a small amound of a white/clear silicone be applied to the outer perimtere of gasket, to minmize air movemnt from between gasket and door panel.
lastley in oyour second pic i see "frost free" written on a plastic air deflector. you can remove that with 3-4 screws on backside of it, and then reinstall with a small spacer so as the baffle now with sit with a 3/8in. gap between it and the top of the freezer liner.( a brass ferrel from the compression fitting of a plumbing fitting is just the right size)..... the theory behind this is to prevent the air from gatting "trapped" in the void created when the door closes-- air can now pass back and forth freely.
I hope this gives you some satisfaction if not I would advise another tech be sent who is willing to call for factore tech support( ths is where i got my info from)

My wife solved it for me :-) You turn the alarm off with a switch at the bottom. The alarm turns off, but the light stays red for another 4 hours. After that the red light goes off too, and you can turn the switch back on without the alarm going off, if the freezer is back to operating temp.
