Question about Frigidaire FRT21P5A Top Freezer Refrigerator
For a few weeks, we have been having problems with our unit. When it stops producing ice and the refrigerator stops cooling very well, we notice ice at the back of the freezer compartment. My husband unplugs it and blow dries the freezer until the ice is gone. Works good for another week or two and then we do this all over again. What can we do??

possible bad switch, but that would only control onr of the features, sounds like your have an power supply issue to the entire door assy , check the incoming waire s eiterh on top or bottom of door hinge, look for broken/unplugged wire harness

the icemaker is not making ice due to the fact that the valve solenoid may need replacing.
check the water line into the icemaker, to make sure that you don't have a water leak.
the reason the fridge is running is due to the fact that it's trying to remove as much warm air out as possible.
i would have a technician look at it.

If your frig is freezing the food in the chilling compartment as well as the freezer, it means one thing--its thermostat isn't shutting down the compressor when the set temperature has been met. You stated that you had it checked by, I assume, a professional service technician. Being a retired tech myself, I'm surprised that he didn't check this out and discuss it with you. Check the temperature IN THE FREEZER! If it is less than 10 degrees F., turn the thermostat to "warmer". If the temp in the freezer is 10 degrees F., leave it alone and go to the temp control in the frig, which is a damper that controls cold air flow from the freezer compartment. Close this damper until your temperature in the upper part of the refrigerator is 38 to 40 degrees F. If these efforts don't shut down the compressor and correct your problem, then the answer is simple. Your thermostat is bad and needs to be replaced. It isn't expensive, and should cost you less than the labor for a tech to install it. Good luck!

take the ice tray out and on the back wall of the freezer, there's a square hole with a white little bar inside push it up or down(whichever way it's not) then replace ice tray..... should work. I've done this a few times.
