Frigidaire FRT22INLHWO Top Freezer Refrigerator Problem

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??

hi there,

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.

SOURCE: frost in top freezer - water leaking in refrigerator - ice maker not working

Hi,

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.

SOURCE: Refrigerator side stops cooling

Drain stopped up.
Take out the bottom drawer in the freezer, look at the back wall and you should get a partial view of the bottom of the cooling coils. Directly below these coils is the drain area. You may need a light to see the drain hole. If this area is covered with ice then a hair dryer will help clear this so you can see the drain hole.
I have some O2 tubing that I put down the drain to clear any cloggs. Also, I seal the top of the drain hole around the O2 tubing with tape and use the air from my lungs to clear the drain tube. Pour a little water down this drain hole to make sure it’s clear.

Fridigaire top freezer has stopped cooling


It could be frosted up or the drain plugged which would cut off the air flow to refrig section. If you see any frost or ice anywhere empty the unit and let it set with doors open 24 hrs to thaw. Or take the inner panel out of the freezer to see where the blockage is. If the coil is completely frosted over you have a defrost problem and need to determine which component has failed

Frigidaire White 16.5 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator (FRT17HB3)- The freezer works, the refridge portion is warm, it started last week ans seemed intermitten, we turned the cooling higher and it was fine...


Hi,

All of your cooling coils on this model are located in the freezer. If you are cold enough in the freezer your problem is air flow to the fresh food section.

- There is fan behind the back wall of the freezer, be sure that is running.

- Look for frost build up on the back wall of the freezer, if present we have a defrost problem

- look for the duct or channels between the floor and freezer and top of the refrigerator they could be blocked with ice, if so we have a drain problem.

Let me know what you find and I will help you from there.

Why is water forming under the veggie drawers


One of two things caused this problem, either the drain in the freezer is clogged and spilling over to the air duct and through to the refrigerator, down the back wall and then puddling up under the drawers or the Styrofoam between the freezer and refrigerator is saturated with water. If you remove the inner back wall of the freezer and there is ice built up, defrost it with hot water and a turkey baster, push some heavy weed trimmer line down the drain tube and they should clear the clog. If there is no ice build up, then you probably have the latter of the two problems, the only solution is to empty the unit, turn it off, and let it dry out for a few days with the doors opened. If the problem continues, then there is a significant breakdown of the Styrofoam between the two cavities and there isn't a solution, it is time to purchase a new unit.

Leaking water


dianaluscou,

The freezer has a drain hole in it typically in the back at the bottom. This is clogged and needs to be cleared out in order to stop the water problem in the refrigerator section. Remove everything from the freezer and if needed defrost. Look for the drain hole and you can pour hot water or use a hair dryer to melt the ice in the drain. Once it is unclogged, the water problem should stop.

I just did this about 6 months ago on my own refrigerator/freezer.

10 yr old Frigidaire ice maker stopped making ice


try forcing the cycle by manually triggering the cycle a few times. Sometimes you can detach the trip arm or turn the tray by hand by disconnecting it from the gear. There may have been a switch bumped to turn it off or the switch somehow jammed. Maybe check for freeze-up. If there is water in it, it's going somewhere.

NO ICE (ATLEAST NOT WHERE IT SHOULD BE)


Try to defrost the unit, after defrosting restart the unit and monitor. If ice formation still exist then unit a qualified technician. May be your unit has leak and under charge or need to be reprocess.

Ice Maker Not Making Ice


Ice maker was installed properly, when you put the arm down it doesn't call for water to fill unit. It doesn't make any kind of noises at all. The water is turned on and all plugs are in there are no kinks in the line but when the arm is truned down for it to call for water nothing happens

The is for a frigidaire refrigerator.Ice maker is all new..
