Freezer Burn

We just moved to a new house (we rent) and things in the freezer seem to get freezer burn very quickly. I put a loaf of bread in its original plastic bag and within a week it has freezer burn all over it. I have teh freezer set at 3 - which is what the note next to teh dial says is standard temp. Any idea why this is happening or how to stop this? Thanks.

    check the seal on the door, it might be leaking, which would make the temp/humidity fluctuate too much

      Use a Ziploc Freezer Bag. Freezer Probably was not cold enough either..
