Question about Frigidaire FRT125GW (12 cu. ft.) Top Freezer Refrigerator
Is it normally for a fridge freezer to be "off" for a couple of hours before it comes back on? My f/freezer always works 30 mins on and then 60 mins off and so on. Week ago started playing up. Where the f/freezer would stay on for say 2 hours and then turn off BUT it would also stay off for 2-3 hours before coming back on. F/freezer has been switched off for a week in case anything was frozen. Switched back on not its still not working, meaning 2 hours on and then over 2 hours off with the temperatures rising in fridge ( up to 10oc) and freezer compartment but still not switching on. I can manually turn the dial but doesn't want to seem to do it automatically properly.
Good Afternoon S Trowell - Thank you for your post! Based on the symptoms you are describing it appears that the thermostat has lost its calibration and is not cycling on or off at the proper temperatures. I would recommend connecting with a professional appliance tech for a clear-cut diagnosis and to proceed further.

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.

IS THIS A AUTOMATIC DEFROST UNIT? IF SO THEN THE DEFROST CLOCK PROBABLY IS BAD, LOOK UNDERNEITH BY THE COMPRESSOR AND THERE SHOULD BE A SQUARE ISH BAX THAT HAS 4 WIRES COMING OUT OF IT. TAKE AND TURN THE RED KNOB WITH A SCREW DRIVWER UNTIL THE COMPRESSOR COMES ON. IF THAT WAS NOIT IT TAKE A HAIR DRIER AND HEAT UP THE LIDUID LINE DRIER SOME TO TRY TO CLEAR THE RESTRICTION ON THE DRIER. GOOD LUCK (SORRY ABOUT ALL CAPS BUT GOT TIRED OF CORECTING THE SPELLING) NOT SHOUTING

Because the model FRT21P5A has a manual adjusting vent I believe your problem is either the defrost heater and defrost thermostat and or the cold control (thermostst) is not working correctly. When temperatures rise in the refrigerator side first that is a sign that the air flow from the freezer is restricted. You will need to unplug the refrigerator and remove the rear panel in back of freezer to confirm. If Iced over use a hair dryer to defrost and disconnect one wire on the defrost heater. Check the defrost heater with an ohm meter. You should get a reading. If defective and no reading you need to replace the defrost heater and defrost thermostat. Let me know what you find, Thanks Sea Breeze

where you found the block of ice there should have been a drain hole with a tube attached that runs to the evaporative pan at the bottom ... most likley is the pan at the bottom is dirty and the drin tube is plugged at this point the easy fix is to (1) clean the drain pan (2) remove the ice in the cold transfer shaft as you have done before (3) pour warm water into the drain hole as it is probally iced up and last take a can of air like you use for a computer key board with the straw attached place it in the drain hole and hold a wet rag around it and press the button once this is clear you should be home free hope this helps
