    Default Kenmore elite trio frost in freezer

    Model Number: 795.77719700
    Brand: Sears Kenmore

    Kenmore elite trio 795.77719700 Bought in June of 08. Freezer is getting frost buildup. Just noticed this am. I take it the door was shut tight since the door alarm did not go off. Verified that the door alarm works and was on. Bottom freezer door appears to be slightly misaligned when closed tight. Right side sticks out slightly more then left side. Wife thinks its been like this since new. TIA for any help.

    Is the frost just inside the freezer? not on the back panel inside the freezer?

    Is everything in both sides still staying cold like normal?

    Ok, then its most likely an air leak causing the excessive frost all inside the freezer.

    You mentioned that door seal problem, but your absolutely sure its still sealing tight?

    Thanks Jake! I will double check that seal and let you know.

    It appears that there has been a lower level of frost the past few days.
