Question about Frigidaire FRT18G4A Top Freezer Refrigerator
Hello All, My Freezer has not been working properly for a week or two now, not freezing anything at all. Within the last few days, the fridge seems to be warmer then normal as well, So I went through this site, and there was a suggestion to open the back of the freezer (inside), and check the coils to see if they were frozen or not... I did this, and yes, it was frozen, not evenly, all on the right side. So I left it unplugged for a little, and with a hairdryer I melted all the ice, and dried up the freezer. Put it back together and turned it on, took a while to start getting cold again, but it started, so as a joke, I took off the back again to see if all the coils were frosting up evenly, and they are not, still freezing again just on the right side, and the rest of the coils are not even cold to the touch.... Any ideas? Thanks!
Nortron, sounds like the system is restricted. I have seen a lot of these Frigidaires in the past 5 years with this problem. You should have a even frost pattern through the entire evaporator. I have been changing the compressor, evaporator and heat exchanger on these models. Your system on this refer is covered for 5 years, parts and labor for this failure. Here's hoping it's under 5 years. If it is, make sure all three componets mentioned above are changed out, otherwise the same deal is going to happen again down the road. Catriver.

Hello friend, thanks you for your post!
It sounds like a possible leak within your water line or water filter and that is what could be causing your Electrolux refrigerator fan to freeze. I would recommend having a professional come out to properly diagnosis your refrigerator.
The leak could also be within the cabinet and a technician would have the appropriate tools need to locate the cause of the leak. I hope this information has been helpful. -Matt

Hello mahalco, thank you for post!
It could be a possible issue within your thermostats or it could be within your control panel. Since it could be any one of these potential issues I would recommend having a professional come out to review your refrigerator and assess what the possible diagnose could be. This would avoid any unnecessary part purchases. I hope this is helpful. -Matt
