Question about Frigidaire FRS26R4A Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Where is the drain?

I read on one of the solutions, that the reason why ice maybe building up on the bottom of my Frigidaire side by side, is maybe due to the drain being clogged with ice or something.

But I can seem to find this drain.

any detailed instruction one where it maybe?

ALSO for some reason, after I use the water dispenser, it does not stop dispensing water right way, it takes about a second or so to realize we took the glass away, but by that time, the water catch tray is filled with water.

BTW, I don't use the built in water filter, I replaced with a external 200 or 2000 gallon filter, could this be a problem>

Thanks in advance.

Hi, Well could you tell me if your f/freezer is frost free? Or is it a wet wall type fridge? I.E. water running down the back of the fridge? This would help me in telling you what is wrong. As for the water despenser you will probably find that there is a small bit of scale in the water valve which lets the water in or that there is a scale build up in the water despenser in the door. This does happen even tho you have a water softner. You will need to check both as to ascertain which it is.

Why would we get ice build up underneath bottom bskt in freezer?


because your drain is clogged and now frozen, now the defrosted frost is staying in the freezer. you must defrost the drain and than, clean the drain and insure that water can flow out into the drain pan.

Ice keeps building up in bottom of freezer and on vent inside fridge and now fridge won't stay cold.


Clean the coil inside the rear access panel behind the unit with a spray air duster and check for this problem.

I just opened up the back of my Frigidaire Side by Side counter depth to find the drain hose was bent and collapsed coming right out of the bottom of the freezer and the pan was dry as a bone. It doesn't look like my drain hose has ever drained a drop of water. The freezer bottom is full of ice And the rust and chipping paint under the bottom of the freezer door along with the mysterious puddles of water every morning means the drain system definetely never worked. Frigidaire should be responsible for this. This, along with the ice maker rebuild I had to do,... after ice was spilling all through the fridge. I actually had warrantty left on that one and called customer support in India to find out I could make the repair myself. Yep I had to do it. Frigidaire you failed.

Ice Build Up in Freezer of FRS26ZSH


I had this problem. You need to clean out the drain under the freezer. The tech that came out used a squeezie bulb similar to what you use for a baby to clean their nose when clogged. You have to remove all the shelf's and the back plate. You need to use warm water to defrost the frozen ice and remove. use water and squeeze into the hole and **** out.. takes 10 minutes.. finally it will drain.. no parts are necessary. good `luck

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.

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

I just fixed similar issue. Defrost drain plugged. Take back panel off and behind fan is back hose. Take it out from the bottom and use something like coat hanger to unplug.

Also need to take off front panel from inside freezer and remove ice build up and thaw with hot water or hair dryer. Once done you should notice water in drain pan from back. Put all together.

Ice in the bottom of frigidaire side by side frost proof freezer


take all the bottom shelves and baskets out of the freezer. look at the back wall of the freezer. youll see a block of ice in a metal pan looking part at the bottom of the rear panel. there is a hole in the bottom of that pan. thats the defrost drain. its clogged. use a hair dryer to get all the ice out then use hot water to flush out the drain hole.
