My Frigidaire freezer interior shelf has come loose and left holes - is the freezer still safe to use? Also it seems like expanding foam is coming out underneath the freezer - why is this? Thanks

SOURCE: Water leaking frigidaire frs23h5as

yes remove the rear panel in the freezer where you see the drain hole. Clear the ice from the drain hole. It will take a while for the water to start to drain because the ice is deep in the insulation. A small tube is helpful to draw some hot water in and stick in in the drain hole and squirt the hot water down in the hole.

SOURCE: Frigidaire refrigerator has water coming out

You should have an evaporator tray under the refrigerator. A certain amount of condensate is to be expected during the cooling cycle and it drips into a collector tray under the refrigerator. Heat from the compressor causes this condensate (water) to evaporate. If the tray has come out of place, or is missing or damaged, the water will not collect in one spot to evaporate and will run out under the refrigerator. Also, if the automatic defrost cycle for the freezer is not set correctly or is malfunctioning, that may also cause an overabundance of condensate to be produced and it can overflow the condensate tray. If this has been helpful, please rate me accordingly. Thanks and good luck.

SOURCE: the water is overflowing from the freezer onto refrig shelf

Yes, let the unit thaw out, and replace that thin wire. it's called a drain heater, it simply keeps the water from freezing before it gets out the drain.

SOURCE: Wire shelf in freezer of Frigidaire refrgerator - how do I move?

since on differnet models it goes right or left,
but you should be able to push the shelf one way, enough so that the other side pops out of the wall
then slide in the long side first, you will see what i mean when you have the shelf out
push the long side in with a lil pressure and raise the shelf the leve you want it installed on

SOURCE: freezer door handle is loose

Usually those handles push directly up to come off the pegs. You really have to "lean in" to push the handle against the door and then try to slide it up. Once you get it off, you can tighten the studs (or whatever hook/clip thingy they came up with) and slide it back on.

Why am i getting ice in the fridge

It sounds like the sensor has come off the back of the evaporator in the fridge section.

Turn the fridge freezer round and look at the back, on the back at the top left hand side you will see a cable going into the plastic covering the back. Now measure 5 inches from the top of the cabinet and then 5 inches from the left hand side......... now dig.

About 2 inches from the surface you will find the sensor inside a metal holder, check to make sure this is firmly pressed against the evaporator (you might find the tack welds have come off), so you might have to stick a little wedge in to push the sensor against the evap properly.

Now fill the hole you just made with expandable foam.

Leave overnight and all should be OK. with a bit of luck the sensor is actually working and not gone 'out of range'.

Coil is broken. can it be soldered together?

Good day,
As a rule copper/steel yes. Aluminum no. However, if aluminum, wait a while, some guy may be weaving magic out there as I post this.
Small holes can be epoxied, but your describing a complete break.
2 brass unions and a new section of pipe might be made to work, but the ferrules in the union are copper, and copper and aluminum don't like each other, eventually leading to failure.

Unable to remove shelf

Remove the "spacers" from the shelf and discard them.
They are for shipping purpose only.
Then push the shelf right or left and pull up on the opposite side. It will come out.

Water in refridgerator interior

You have a plugged drain in the freezer. Unplug and remove back panel in freezer. Under the evaporator there will be ice, thaw with hairdryer or steamer. There is a hole under the ice, that is the drain. Flush with hot water until it drains into outer pan. It may take awhile to get drain cleared.

Water in the floor

there is a drain hose that comes out of the bottom of the cabinet into a drain pan underneath your freezer take a look and see if that got pulled loose during your move. if it is in place then you most likely have a plugged drain. this can be cleaned fromt he inside at the botom. reomve the bottom basket and the shelf right above it. you will see ice build up on the floor of the freezer and and behind the cover. just defrost the ice you will uncover the drain hole flush warm water thru the line till it runs clear. good luck peyton
