Likewise, people ask, why is my freezer freezing over?
Frost inside your freezer is caused by moisture coming into contact with the coils inside the appliance and freezing. This is caused by several factors, including dehydration from changes in temperature within your freezer, exposure to air and food being in the freezer for too long.
One may also ask, how do freezer coils work? The evaporative coils are usually located behind the back wall of the freezer. As long as the compartment is sealed, the coils continue to absorb warmth from the freezer compartment and dissipate it through the condenser coils, and the temperature in the freezer continues to drop.
Then, how do I keep my freezer from freezing?
