Question about Frigidaire Refrigerators
The problem was indeed a clogged frost water drain. I had to pull the frig out from the wall (found an incredible amount of dust accummulation in the alcove), then remove the vertical metal and horizontal cardboard covers to expose the drain catchpan. The 1/2" rubber drain hose end was only about 1/8" above the pan pointing directly into it perpendicularly. This was not enough clearance. There was a plug (formed by dust and water) in the end of the hose that came out easily when I 'roto-rooted' it with a screwdriver. The water flowed easily after that, but I went ahead and trimmed about 3/8" off the end of the hose and pushed it back into its slot. Then I cleaned as much as I could. The prevention is to keep the area behind the frig cleaned!

You may be having a freon issue. Read some more info about this here. I type the longer version on my site. There are also factory service manuals to that may be helpful.

Usually this is a sign of the defrost is no taking place. On base of refrigerator behind the kick plate grill is a defrost timer. Turn the timer clockwise until compressor stops. Leave in that position for up to 30 minutes. The refrigerator should restart on its own after that wait. If not turn the timer again until compressor starts and replace timer. During the time off this should have put the refrigerator into defrost and inside the freezer compartment you should hear crackling and sizzling as the defrost heater melts the ice and water drops down onto the defrost heater. If this helps let me know. The replacement part number for the defrost timer is

Hello Anna, thanks for your inquiry!
From the information you have provided your Frigidaire refrigerator is freezing up on the entrance of your icemaker. It sounds like you could have a possible air leak inside of your freezer. You should place a dollar bill between the door and body of the freezer. If the dollar easily comes out with no resistance then your gasket may need to be replaced. You may also have a possible water leak inside of your icemaker. If you appliance is under warranty I would recommend reaching out to the manufacturer for proper assistance towards repair. Hope this is helpful. -Matt
