Heating, Air Conditioning, Fridge, HVAC/Fridge freezer compartment icing


We have a Maytag model MTB1954AR. It's several years old. The fridge is working fine but the freezer compartment is icing up at the top near the front of the freezer. The items in the freezer are staying frozen and ice cube trays are making ice fine. Can you please recommend a solution?
Thank you!

Simple Celeste.....Air is leaking past your gasket into the freezer.  Warm/hot air has lots of moisture in it and when it passes past your door gasket into the freezer, the condensation in the air freezer and forms frost at the point where it enters the freezer.   How does you freezer door gasket look?  Is it ripped or torn?  If not, take a hair dryer and run it back and forth across the area where it is leaking into the freezer.  Close the door and let it closed for a few hours for the gasket to re-seat itself.  Try this and let me know if it works for you.....

Waiting to hear from you,
