    Default Uneven frosting

    Hello all,

    Newbie here, great site! I recently purchased (2 months ago) a Kenmore 7.5 cu.ft. manual defrost upright freezer, model #564-25702-500. It is cooling (freezing) fine, however the top shelf has about 1/2" of frost on it (uniformly distributed) and the other lower 2 shelves have none. The shelves, I believe, are actually the evaporator coils? What would cause this uneven frosting? The door seal is tight. We purchased it and loaded it during hot weather here in virginia, but have not gone into too frequently.

    Is it still freezing properly?

    Put a thermometer in it to test the temp.

    I have noticed myself, that these very small freezer models don't evenly frost the evaporator coils, but the freezer is always 0-10 degrees.

    Jake, thanks for the reply,

    Yes, it is freeezing properly. 10 degrees on "med" setting. It's just that the top shelf (coil) is has a lot of frost build up and the others have none. Based on your experience, I guess maybe because it's a smaller model that that is just the way it is? "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"?

    My old Whirlpool built Kenmore upright freezer does exactly the same thing, but still works just fine. It seems to be a characteristic of units where the coils are the shelves.
