Question about Frigidaire Freezers
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.
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.

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
