My freezer has frost on the walls or ceiling

• To minimize the possibility of electric shock, unplug this appliance from the power supply before attempting any maintenance or cleaning.

Causes of frost accumulation:

• High humidity.

• Heavy door openings.

• Warm food load.

• Packages resting against the rear wall.

• Packages keeping the door open.

• After correcting these causes, the frost accumulation will go away in a few days. You may need service if the door gaskets are not sealing properly or are torn or split or if the fan in the freezer is not running.
