Question about Frigidaire Freezers

1 Answer

Frigidaire mod.#affu2067ew2. Gasket snug and clean. Exterior door is very cold alot of condensate. Gasket is dry but door is wet.

Freezes great, no ice build up and seems to cycle regularly. Gasket is clean and snug and seems to fill when closed. Exterior door is very cold (just the metal) and condensates like crazy. Lower part of the door is starting to rust, seems like from the inside out. The rusting has been going on for a while but the very cold door and condensate just started

Sounds most likely didn't get a good fill in the foaming machine the fills the door cavities wiht insulation. I've been in a refigerator plant and seen it happen. They are supposed to be checked. Tap various places around the outside of the door to see if there is a hollow sound. It could just be around the outside edges of the door unless the whole door is cold.

Hi and wel;come to FixYa. I am Kelly.

Do you know if the compressor is even running?

Also how long has this icemaker been in service?

There are only 3 things that can cause a condition that the unit is not freezing.

1. Low coolant
2. The compressor is not running.
3. The condensor or evaporator fan is not running.

Having said that...

The most common failures for a cooling system are
the PTC relay / thermal overload and the run capacitor.
PTC Relay is item 18 of link below
Thermal overload is item 20 of link below
The condensor fan motor is Item 4 of the link below

Item 5 the electronic control board (see link below) controls the operation of the compressor via the thermostat Item 12 of link below. In addition to that there is also 1 thermistor (Item 20) that is also part of the control circuit.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/showSubComp.pd?imageUrl=http%3a%2f%2fc.searspartsdirect.com%2flis_png%2fPLDM%2fP0109006-00004.png

ANY of the above can cause your icemaker not to function correctly. It will take circuit analysis to isolate which component may be causing your current system.

If the compressor is running and it is not cooling then
There can be any one of the following causing the problem.

1. Low coolant
2. A stuck valve for the cooling / ice making system (5ea)
3. The compressor can be running but not up to speed due to a dragging rotor.

I wish I could say _______ part is what causing your current symptom. It just is not possible without someone doing some on site troubleshooting of everything listed in this post.

Freezer cools fine but will not shut off till I open door


Running all the time means you either have to clear/clean your condenser... Check for good tight door seals... and make sure the doors/vents are not blocked by any contents...

Free flowing cold dry air inside... sealed compartments is ideal.

Dollar Pull test:
Use the dollar bill pull test all round your doors...
(brown paper sack is cleaner & nicer):

You can take the paper...
close the door on it..
Pulling it out you should feel mild but constant pressure around the full perimeter of each door (or drawer).

If you do NOT feel it the door/drawer needs to be checked for gasket integrity... and the door may need to be adjusted.

New door gaskets are not terribly expensive
(but most issues are caused by spilled food, cleaning
or door adjustments = easy).

(FULLY covered in every owners manual I've read).

Consider purchasing 2 TAYLOR BRAND refrigerator
thermometer & turning the freezer to the ZERO Fahrenheit
area and the refrigerator to 33 or 34 degrees above zero
(32 degrees Fahrenheit... being frozen eggs & milk (too cold)).

Else... comment me back...

We can take this all the way into refrigerant level check if you find NOTHING ELSE WRONG

((HIGHLY IMPROBABLE... but do-able)).

So be gentle!!!

Can I replace insulation in door only?


Hi - I understand that you recently had something heavy drop on top of your Frigidaire Freezer door. From my experience the condensation does typically indicate poor door seal. When cold air and warm air outside is entering into the freezer it causes condensation. Try checking and see if the door seal is bad; place a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet double check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing it. If nothing is stopping the door from closing then I suggest contacting your manufacturer and see who they recommend to repair the unit. Hope this helps! JK

Exterior door presents condensation (a vertical line in the middle)


Normally when there is insufficient air flow in the room the freezer door will condensate and show wet spots.Have that often when testing a fridge in the workshop. Once the door is wide open, the wetness on the door goes away.

Freezer Will not freeze in some areas


Check the door gasket near those shelves.

Make sure the condenser fins or tubes have adequate air flow for cooling (it looks a bit like a small but fat car radiator). In most freezers, this will be in the bottom in the back. You may have to remove a vented cover to check this. Usually there is a fan blowing air through the condenser. Carefully vacuum out any dirt in the condenser (the fins are delicate and bend easily), and verify that the fan runs smoothly when the compressor is running.

Put a thermometer in the freezer right by the cold air inlet to verify that the refrigerant is doing its job. It should read 0 degrees F. or below (-18 degrees C). If it doesn't get down that far, the compressor needs to be recharged or replaced.

If the door has been hit hard (somebody falling and slamming into it) the door insulation may be damaged there. Check to see if the outside of the door feels cold there compared to the rest of the door. If it does, the door needs to be repaired or replaced.

Frigidaire freezer has ice accumulating and not freezing properly. Ice cream will not freeze.


Try turning the temperature control to off, unplug the electrical power cord from the power outlet, defrost the appliance, clean the condenser, plug the power cord into an electrical outlet, set the temperature control to a low setting, lay a thermometer in the freezer for a few hours and see what happens to the temperature in the machine.
Check the integrity of the seal of the door gasket by seeing how the door seal will hold a slip of paper in various locations along the freezer door gasket. A loose hold on the slip of paper shows an area where hot moist air can get into the freezer and cause ice build up.

Frigidaire upright model #MFU20F3GW8- Food not freezing


Check and clean the air cooled condenser for dust and dirt. Check and make sure the fan in back, on the bottom behind a removable panel, is operating. After cleaning the condenser replace the panel.
Also you stated there is no frost anywhere. Did you check the back wall of the freezer for frost buildup. If not check it and if there is frost there your defrost system is not working and the frost has stopped air circulation.

Alarm on


hector...this sounds like icing up! First thing is to defrost this unit. The ice is preventing air flow over the coils. Shut down and get warm air to the coils. Then, let everything dry. If you leave off and open for 2 days, this will do it. Causes: humid conditions, 'window shopping' or bad gaskets. If the gasket surfaces are dirty, clean them. Test any questionable areas by taking a 2-3 wide strip of paper and close the door on it. If the paper pulls easily, the gasket is bad.

Now, clean out the condenser coils. They are located in the back or under the unit and are always painted black. Then, have a look at the compressor. It is that big black thing in the bottom with pipes sticking out of it. Look at the larger pipe. When you start the unit, it should frost and then either dry off or condense water after about 5 minutes. If it stays frosty or is not cold, you need gas. If the unit passes all these tests, you may have a defrost timer issue. Let me know.

Not Freezing, but cold


The thermostat should be a close circuit when requesting cold temps. or when asking the compressor to come on. The exterior surface on some freezers warm when asking for cold inside. Yours has a condenser coil on the back and that should warm when cooling. If compressor is runningit should be wrm if no freon has leaked from freezer somewhere.
The defrost timer should rotate clockwise during the day and give approx. 3 defrost daily or about every 8 hours. Until the thermostat is resolved and asks for a closed circuit the compressor will not come on. Unplug freezer from outlet,remove thermostat wires, then turn the thermostat to its coldest setting and check again. If no closed circuit the thermostat will need replaced first. Hope this has helped you, Sea Breeze
