Guide :Freezers : 13.7 cu. ft. / 388 liter Upright Freezer 23424

Frost freeze-up i have a frost fre freezer model C675-58714-OJ. i keep it in my cold room for space reasons, it seems to be icing up- i would like to take the back off but there is some rubber trim holding the shield in place . just wondering if it is ok to pull this stuff out and then repack it. I think the problem may be moisture and was wondering if i could run a piece of thinnish wire 1/8th maybe from the heating element down the center of the drain hose to keep the water flowing, does this make sense? if you can help with any of this please do thanks

Yes to both questions. You do remove the rubber strips to remove the back cover and yes you can run a wire down the drain from the heater. There actually was a repair kit a few years ago for a different brand of freezer that was exactly that, a piece of aluminium strap that hooked to the heater and stuck into the drain. Make sure the drain is clean also.

The coldest part of a freezer gets frosted up the fastest( i cannot believe you are running a freezer with no door !!!!) like running a/c with doors open just replace the seals asap.

Is the fan inside the freezer working? If the fan isn't working the freezer will never get ice cold.

My subzero 601 F freezer door gets hard to open unless you wait 4 minutes. While investigating this I discovered that there is a buildup of ice in the trough behind the icemaker. It appears that the drain line is stopped up with ice. There is a wire in the drain. Is it supposed to be heated to keep the drain clear? Perhaps it's not functioning? By the way, I do not have water run to the freezer and do not use the ice maker in the freezer. Once I thaw it out the door works just fine until the ice builds up. It takes a year or two to build up.


Switch off machine. open doors an manually defrost.clean any filters/drain holes(wire is not heated,pull/push to clean pipe)dry as best you can.switch on again.it is best to manually defrost any unit every 6 months and if temp edjustable adjust to -20c for optimum economy.water to icemaker is not important on 601f but is on some others.be carefull

Shelves that wont stay


I had the same problem. With the basket install empty I notice there was about ¼" gap from the bar the far most side of the side rail. SO I removed the left side rail and found a peice of laminate flooring and cut it to the same size of the the bracket (also predrill the holes so the screw holes match up). I had to buy 3 new screws that were ½" longer the orginal. I reassembled the wood and rail bracket . I then slid the basket in the rail, then started the load the backet up with frozen items. It works perfectly. The basket does not fall any more! Total cost... 3 screws ($0.15).

Admiral upright freezer dripping water inside on top


Hello. I can help. Once we notice anything different from before we start becoming more aware of small variations. Regarding things on the top shelf warmer than on the bottom, this is always true because, "warm air rises and cold air falls". If you want the top shelf colder turn the thermostat to the next colder setting, always a good idea in the Summer season anyway. Even though your gasket looks good, a ten year old gasket is not as pliable as a new one resulting in the moisture problem you describe. I would begin by applying a thin coating of vaseline to the gasket once a week for a month. This little trick of the trade will often work. If it doesn't improve the situation do replace the gasket.
