Question about Refrigerators
Is it normal that a copper pipe from the compressor show a frost cover when compressor is functioning? and when in stand-by the frost to melt? Re: GE Refrigerator Model TFX20RJC
No not normal, this is a sign that the unit has been overcharged with refrigerant. If it is just frost or condensate on the copper pipe that is not a big problem. But if the frost extends onto the compressor dome, then I would be worried. Sometimes fridges are charged in an area with a lower ambient temperature and then moved and sold in another area, hence the slight overcharge. No problem. Hope this answers your question. And yes when the unit cycles the frost will melt and of course drip onto your floor.
