Concrete counterbalance broken (Frigidaire FWT449GFS1)

Just took the bottom panel off of my Frigidaire, only to find several brick-sized pi9eces of concrete on the bottom pan, as well as a huge curved piece of concrete. It appears the bolt that holds the concrete on has rusted and broken. Can I purchase a new counter-balance, or just chuck the machine and buy a new one? It is about 10 years old...

Check with a company online called sundberg appliance parts, the counterbalance isn't hard to install and will definately be cheaper than new one.

My Frigidaire refrigerator took a huge power surge during snow storm. It burned out the relay and the defrost control. Replaced these parts but now the refrigerator is freezing on the top. Is there another...


Yes, there is a fan that distributes cold air throughout the freezer and to the refrigerator side. The fan is usually located behind an access plate near the bottom of the freezer side. You should be able to hear it if it's running. If you don't hear it, remove the access panel and look at it. If it's not turning, you will need to replace the fan motor.

Frigidaire side by side: water fills up in bottom of freezer


You have a blockage in your drain tube, at the bottom of the metal tray there is a hole which is connected to a tube which runs down the back of your refridge to a pan next to the compressor. It is an easy fix have done this 1000's times. Remove back panel in freezer, grab a heat gun or hair dryer and melt the ice it the bottom of tray. Clean the water in the tray with some paper towel next get some hot water in a measuring jug and pour into the pan(hot water will help melt ice in tube) repeat this process a couple of times and then get a curtain wire or something flexible to push down the pipe to clean the blockage...you will know when the blockage is clear because the water in the pan will suddenly drain off....put cover back on...make sure to unplug appliance before servicing...hope this helps :)

When in spin made loud klunking and screaching noise. now will not work in spin cycle without making loud klunking noise


Pull off the bottom panel, (three 1/4" screws along bottom). Check for chunks of concrete hanging down, or in the bottom pan. I have seen the lower front counter-weights on the HE2 break off several times. If not, reach in and give the basket a hard spin by hand, if you hear clunking or grinding, or the basket feels loose, you have a bad basket brace (usually caused by slop in the rear bearing). You would need to replace the rear shell (comes with a pre-installed bearing) and the basket. Depending on age, these parts may be in warranty, check your manual.

Salt got on small piece of my concrete and now it is breaking down. i am getting all these pitted holes about the size of a baseball. it actually looks like the concrete is peeling.


Salt is evil when it omes to unsealed concrete. Hose down the area and remove any remaining salt. Then go to a cement block/brick yard and speak with the clerk about your problem. There are several very excellent concrete patches that will do the repair. Finally, I would seal or reseal the entire concrete pad.

please mark my answer as a fixya!

Masonry Jointer Usage


While the final effects of a stone or concrete wall are stunning, the work to make it beautiful is time-consuming and difficult. Tools are very important in masonry work. Having the right tools for a certain job make all the difference. Jointers come in many different sizes and shapes. Learn the various types and how to use them and you can make quick work of a difficult task. Use an e-jointer for narrower spaces between the stones. There is no handle on the e-jointer, making it easier to smooth and shape the joints between the stones. Whenever your hand is closer to the surface, you can exert more control. Get a bead jointer for raised masonry bricks. These jointers come in two sizes, 1/4-inch by 5/16-inch and 3/8-inch by 1/2-inch. They are small, strong, simple tools that can chip off the excess of a joint that is sticking up off the brink. You do not want to make a deep joint between raised bricks. Change your joint tool to a brick masonry mortar joint raker tool if you are making your project from rougher materials, such as adobe brick or split stone. This tool has many more grooves, which will fit in various sized joints. Turn it on the end for narrow joints and use the curved notch for more intricate patterns between the stones. Switch to a grapevine mortar jointer for very clean lines between the bricks. This tool is used primarily for a colonial look, which is even and measured. Your can get this jointer with a wooden handle for a more even grip.
