Don't be concerned about the Styrofoam, what you have there is overflow if you remove the foam you should be ok as long as you didn't cut in to the cab and remove more of it. To awnser your question the foam is there to insulate the cabinet if a lot was removed you can cause a void in the insulation and start to see a lot of moisture build up. As for your sec question depending on the model the t-stat may not be calling for cool. so in some cases the compressor will be off and the fans stay on but how do you know if the compressor is off? unless you pulled the back off and checked, but if your unit is cooling i wouldn't not worry about it.

My frigidare 241968503 is leaking water around where you plug the filter in?

Took out filter, placed forefinger firmly over one outlet and sucked, with my mouth on the other. heard seeping noise and found clear casing cracked very slightly where it is melded with the white front plate. This is a much simpler check before you start getting out your tools! Solution, replace filter and cross your fingers that this stuff made in Singapore will hold up for a few more months.

Vegetable bin keep freezing food. Model # ED2CHOXKQ05

That can be the result of a couple things. Check to see if you hear the fan running in the freezer side? If not, since cold air falls, the cold air could be migrating from the freezer into the frig bottom section through the air duct hole in the back of the frig behind the crisper drawers. If the fan is running the check the air damper in the top left of the frig section. If the frig side is cold enough you should not feel air blowing through. Air flow is only very slight. You will have to remove some plastic cover or duct piece to see if it is closing. If the air damper seems to be working properly, you may have a refrigeration problem indicated by frost build up on the lower part of the freezer back wall. You may want to call in a pro at that point. Hope this helps point you in the right direction. Good Luck

also check defrost timer,defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Trying to locate defrost timer on frigidare model frs24wnfw I hsve the psrt but dont know where to locate where it goes.

on your frigidaire model, look on the front left on the bottom. for some info on your frig, see:

page 10 item 23. hope this helps.

On the maytag defrost timer: it's probably beside the cold control in the plastic housing on the ceiling of the FF section.
