Question about Frigidaire GLRS237ZA Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Ice build up on fan

I have a frigidaire glrs237zcwo side by side freezer and have two problems. the fan at the rear of the freezer gets ice build up every 4- 7 days and this makes a loud noise as the fan hit the ice. I manually defrost the freezer witha heater and then this happens again in 4- 7 days. usually at night when im sleeping :( Also the ice maker only dispenses crushed ice. i had someone replace the solenoid and still no cubes. the service guy has caulked the back when the water supply is thinking that warm air is getting into the frezer and this is the cause of the ice build up. He thinks i may have to replace the circuit board ($180) behind the ice maker and water panels but after 3 visits i feel like this guy is just guessing at what the problem is. Does anyone have any ideas what the source of my problems could be? Ive had this fridge for under 4 years. frigidaire says the compressor is the only thing warrantied. Thanks

    There is ice on the left side of the freezer where the water comes from. The guy who has looked at it 3 times is an authorized frigidare repair guy. No ice or snow on the fan itself its on the metal part the fan is mounted to but builds up and the fan rubs against it. the grills underneath have no ice on them so im thinking the defrost feature is indeed working. Ive orderewd a water supply valve and hope that this will fix it. if not i will have to start looking into the defrost. Gendos do you have email?? mine is coveryer6 at hotmail.com
    Id love to chat withj you and figure this out.

Problem is most likely caused by water overflowing from ice tray and then freezing to motor, hold light switch in and see what happens when tray fills up. Regards Advisor

Fridgeaire upright freezer is getting warmer and warmer.How do I


there is no way of cleaning the coils.there maybe a problem with the compressor.you should hear a fan running inside the freezer when it is in the cooling cycle and the compresor is running if you do not here the fan running this could cause a cooling issue and the evaporator could be building up with ice.
check the rear of the freezer to see if there is any ice build up.

FRS6HR5HSB6 model frigidaire side by side fan making noise. Ice is building up around fan. What is causing ice buildup


the defrost circuit has a problem, allowing the frost/ice buildup..
remove the shelves, and back lower cover in the rear of the freezer to expose the evaporator coil, defrost heater, and defrost thermostat.
the defost heater should have continuity through it and the defrost thermostat will have continuity when frozen but test open when warmed.. if either bad replace.
if both test good look for bad connections in the freezer compartment wiring, and moly connectors otherwise the temperature controls are bad and it is an electronic assembly that incorporates the temperature controls with the deforst timer controls..
hope this helps,
best of luck,

Frigidaire side-by-side model # FRS26H5ASB4 making humming or buzzing noise


I had the same problem. I found the buzzing noise was caused by ice build up around the fan motor inside the freezer. I believe water must have leaked down around the fan during a defrost cycle. I removed the ice maker, the ice cube bin and ice dispenser auger motor. It sounds complicated, but it isn't too bad. The ice maker and auger are connected with quick connect plugs. So just unplug, remove the screws and remove them from the freezer. You will need to remove several other screws as well, I believe 11 in total as well as the top freezer rack. This will give you access to the white aluminum panel that runs from the top of the freezer to about halfway down the back of the freezer. After you remove the aluminum panel you will see the fan about half way down the freezer. I found a lot of ice around my fan. The fan blades were hitting the ice causing the buzz. Remove the ice and the buzzing is gone. It took me an hour to complete this repair. I hope this helps.

this should not be happening as a heater in the freezer should eliminate this problem.first check the hose is completely clear,if it is when your fridge goes into defrost mode you should be able to feel warmth near this drain or hear the ice crackling and defrosting thence draining via the rear tube also try removing the offending ice in the drain with hot water

Ice in freezer compartment


Check to see if your drain tube is clear. Sometimes it freezes up at the base of the rear cover in these bottom freezers. Causing an ice dam.
