Hi there, it sounds like the freezer needs to be unplugged and defrosted, now if it does this automatically which some do and the ice water that was frozen goes through a pipe and out through waste water outlet, after it is completely defrosted you should turn down the freezer dial by at least one digit and keep a check on this to make sure that its not over freezing and causing this problem, on some models the automatic defrost does not work as it should , and even when they do work it is not defrosted enough , so do it manually for a perfect job, note that any food that is in the freezer can be wrapped in news papers while the work is been done , they will be well frozen for the time it takes to defrost , you can speedup the defrosting with a bowl or pot of boiling water placed in the bottom of freezer, make sure that the water outlet is not blocked with food debris..
hope this will be of some help to you.
cassyjoe.

Where is the water tube to see if its frozen FGHB2844LF5 dbl door bottom frezzer


Hello Wally, thanks for your post!
Based off the information you have provided you would like to know the location of the water line inside of your Frigidaire refrigerator. The water line is located within the wall of your refrigerator it is not accessible. The best way to clear out a frozen water line is to disconnect power from the refrigerator for at least two to three hours. This will help defrost any ice build-up within the refrigerator. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

Find where the supply air is coming into the fridge part. It comes from the freezer and could easily be supplying -18 air direct to the door. This would give you a 2 in the fridge but anything in the direct air path could freeze.

Remove the back panel and get to the drain trough. Using a hair dryer heat until it starts getting a lot of water. Dry with towel and repeat. After several minutes take some boiling water and pour in the drain trough and let set. Do this with ref off. After about 30 minutes the tube will be cleared again. Hope this helps. Rick

It sounds like you have a frozen drain. google your specific model on how to take the freezer panel off and take a turkey baster full on hot water and run it down the drain line unitl it clears. Once its clear if you have a calrod heater (it will look like an electric bake element on an oven) take a piece of heavy copper wire (ground wire for a recepticle) and run it down the drain line about an inch and a half. This will conduct heat from the element down the drain line during a defrost cycle and help prevent the problem for happenening again.

let me know if this helps

There is a restriction in the condensate drain. You should be able to press a piece of tubing against the drain opening (inside fridge) and BLOW (NOT ****) through the other end. this should clear the obstruction. The obstruction would be slimy goop, sooo again -

Water keeps filling bottom of lower freezer in my refrigerator


sorry, about the timing, you have aclogged drain tube, your "self-defrosting" refrig isnt able to allow the derforst water to escape( tube if frozen) so it baks up into the frezzer area and eventually will drip into the frig. you will need to remove the back cover of freezer sect, and with a hair dryer remove all the ice from the drain trough area and clear the frozen drain tube area
