Question about Frigidaire FSC23F7D Side by Side Refrigerator
The condenser coils located in the freezer section keep icing up about every 4 days. I have the freezer temp control on lowest setting, but my ice cream remains rock hard. When the coils ice up, the cold air flow to my refrig stops. I have defrosted the freezer and the coils and all works well for about 3-4 days before the problem returns. I have a side-by-side model FRS26ZshB1. Thanks.
I would suggest the evaporator heater or thermal fuse (if applicable) has failed.

If the frost build up is on the back panel of the freezer then it has a defrost problem which causes a no cool situation. Let me know more about this frost buildup and what you have done.

SOURCE: dorm refrigator icing up
Make sure the fridge and freezer are not packed with food. It needs a lot of breething room.Also make sure the door is seeling tight. Not a lot of room in small fridge. Good luck

Check the door gasket seal.
Open the door for a few seconds and then close.
Immediately open the door again, and, if sealing properly, it should take more pulling force to open the door.

That was excellent description of the problem! Nice diagnosis, too!
The Adaptive Defrost Control board is located in the control section. It's part # is 4388932. I made this little diagram for you to assist you in gaining access to it.
Let me know, if you have any trouble, OK? Otherwise, don't forget to rate this solution and thanks for using FixYa!

The defrost is not working.This happens due to the evaporator coil in the inner section of freezer is got blocked by ice .--------
Try manual defrost reset procedure: ----
First unplug the unit from main power outlet. Then empty whole unit completely. Then keep both the doors open. Wait for 24 hours. All the ice collected on the coils and in the freezer section will get melted. Clean the water from the sections. Then Connect the power cord of the unit to main power outlet after 24 hours/.Then set the temperature to normal in both fridge and freezer section. It will take near to 4 hours to get run in its proper cooling cycle. Then check, if the problem returns again. If the same problem occurs then it's defrost problem. The defrost board and the defrost thermostat/heater is not functioning properly and it has to be checked and replaced.
the damper if there is too much water collected in
the damper then press the damper and remove the water
collected in it. The procedure of this unit is as follows: --- The compressor
starts then it cools the freezer section. When the freezer reaches its cooling
level the defrost cycle starts functioning. In this cycle the fan in the
freezer section starts running and the cool air in the
freezer section is passed to the refrigerator section and the
refrigerator section gets cold. The air from freezer to refrigerator passes
from the section, in that section the damper is located. Now this problem which
you mentioned. In this problem the freezer thaws, this happens if the
thermostat is not functioning or the heater is not heating. Then the ice starts
getting collected on the evaporator coil. The evaporator coil
is at the internal section of freezer. If too much ice gets collected
then this ice blocks the fan in the freezer section from functioning and this
blocks the damper section with ice getting collected there. This all procedure
is controlled by the main defrost board of the unit. Now if the damper is not got
blocked with too much water or if the ice is not got collected on the damper
area then check the evaporator coils. If there is too much ice got
collected on the coils, then takes a hair dryer and melt the collected ice.
Then see if the problem returns again. But if there is little bit ice collected
on the coils and fan is running properly then it's not a problem. In that case
main board is faulty and it has to be replaced. The main defrost board is working but
its not controlling the functions as required so the freezer thaws after couple of days.

So first try reset procedure.If that is not helping then defrost assembly parts are to be checked and replaced.The defrost thermostat is located in the freezer section beside the evaporator coil.The defrost heater is located in the freezer section beside the evaporator coil.And the defrost control board is located in the fridge section.-------------
