Question about Frigidaire Refrigerators
I woke up to a loud buzzing noise coming from behind freezer area of my side by side. I took the cover off the inside back of freezer side and found the fan assembly that circulates air around the freezer and refrig was surrounded with ice. The ice was hitting the blade and making a loud buzzing noise. This is the 2nd time this has happened? Any idea why it is doing it?
The defrost system is not doing it's job. I bet if you took the panel off below the fan you will see more ice on the cooling coils. There should be a light coat of frost on the coils but not a heavy ice build up. There is a heating element at the bottom area of these coils which should be defrosting all this ice.
1. A defrost timer turns this heating element on.
2. The heating element melts the ice.
3. A thermo disc attached to the coils will turn the heater off.
One or more of these are not doing it's job.
