SOURCE: frost build-up freezer back wall

Hi, You will need to remove the rear panel and test the defrost heater and the bi-metal switch. The defrost heater is a very common problem with this model. You can check continuity on both the heater and bi-metal to detern which one need replaced. The bi-metal switch needs to be tested while it is could. If both of these parts prove to be ok, you will need to change the mother board.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Excessive frost- maybe door won't close well Builds up on to shelves the worst--could it be the rubber seal


First you must fully defrost your freezer. Frost simply attracts more frost. A build up of frost large enough to prevent the door closing properly will grow very rapidly indeed and waste a lot of electricity; it will also overload the compressor and can cause it to fail prematurely.

If the seal is damaged then it will allow moist air in and cause frost. If the seal has simply become unseated, then refitting it will prevent a recurrence.

Unless you have a frost-free model, then all freezers eventually need defrosting. You can slow the process by never opening the freezer door unnecessarily and also by never leaving it open any longer than necessary. Frost free models rely on air circulation via a fan to prevent frost build up. If the fan fails, or if the freezer is overloaded and so preventing air circulation then it will still frost up.

1999 Frigidaire Refrigerator


Check rear wall of freezer by feel for frost. Heavy, even frost indicates likely problem in the defrost system. Unplug unit. Defrost heater (in freezer behind rear wall panel), defrost thermostat (same area-must be checked at freezer temperature) or Defrost timer-located lower back outside of unit. Near compressor. Do continuity test on heater and defrost thermostat and if they show continuity (good), replace defrost timer. If not, replace the one that tests bad.

Defrost coils fully. Reassemble.

Please let me know if I have helped with comments and rating.

Refrigerator will work about 7-10 days after being defrosted until thick frost builds up again cutting off air flow to both compartments

Divider between fridge and freezer is heating up a lot.


Between the freezer and fresh food compartment is where the evaporator coils are. Frost free refrigerators aren't really frost free at all. Every 12 hours or 24 hours, a timer turns on a set of heating coils in the evaporator to melt the ice on them. If your refrigerator is otherwise functioning normally (normal cooling), it could be that you simply felt the divider it when the unit was self-defrosting.

Most refrigerators go through the defrost cycle unnoticed. When the cycle starts depends on when you plug in or turn on the refrigerator. If you'd prefer to change the time of your defrost cycle, simply unplug the refrigerator for an hour or two then plug it back in. Every hour it's unplugged will delay the defrost cycle one hour. To avoid having to remove food from the refrigerator, you might want to do this over several days, but it's cumulative so each time you unplug it for whatever length of time, it further delays the defrost cycle that length of time.

Your refrigerator has no idea what time it is (unless it's an electronic model with a built-in clock), so setting its timer to self-defrost in the middle of the night is an exercise in trial-and-error.

The other alternative... That the heater is turned on all the time... Would DEFINITELY affect the cooling capacity of the refrigerator and you'd notice that WAY before you'd notice the heat coming from the freezer/refrigerator compartment wall.

Freezer is frosting, water pooling below in fridge


When in doubt call a professional, the ongoing defrost problem is not what should be happening. It is possible that the machine simply wasn't unplugged long enough but without pulling the back cover of the freezer off you aren't going to know that. You may need a timer or a defrost thermostat. If you do decide to diagnose on your own, pull the back cover out of the freezer and defrost, a hair dryer helps.

Frost in "frost-free" freezer


Hi, This is my suggestion to check the defrost timer. "I would suspect the defrost timer. Remove everything and place in coolers or another refrigerator. Unplug the refrigerator. With doors open let it sit for aprox 6 hrs. A fan blowing into the freezer section will help. Plug back in and see if it works good again. If it works good for a couple of days and problem returns, Replace the defrost timer." Sound like you have already done my little test so the defrost timer needs replaced. NOTE: Refrigerators are well insulated and it takes several hours to completely defrost one so you may want to try it again. Also, I believe the clicking you hear is the fan blade hitting ice. Hope this helps. Let me know. kstfas
