Question about Frigidaire FRS-26DR7D Side by Side Refrigerator
The evaporator coil (the one in the freezer) has frozen up twice in the past week. We do not have kids in the house, so I am certain the door is not open too much. The door seal is in very good shape, however I cleaned it and lubricated it per instruction manual any way. Unit is only about 2 1/2 years old, it is not digital but does have an electronic control board (as most things do these days). Where should I look first? I am average in electrical skills for a homeowner. I have already cleaned the condensor coil, freezer thawed out about a month before the evaporator problem started, it was dirty but everything was good after I cleaned it. Thanks for any help, can not afford to buy a new one, and do not think that is necessary at this time but I could be wrong. We have had the same problem for years....ge refuses to help or offer any solutions... We furnished our whole house with ge appliances when bought it.(NEVER AGAIN). I also have several rentals in three states. I will never buy a ge. product again. I tell people the problems we've had with the dishwasher ,the refridge, and the stove, all the time...and let them know I will never but anything from ge again. My wife keeps finding sales of their products ...and I tell her HELL NO!
Is there good airflow around unit (should be away from wall about 2 or 3 inches on all sides) you say you cleaned under so about only thing left that can cause ice is low freon or defrost timer going out slowly

Sounds like the auto-defrost timer has gone bad. In many cases, that is the cause. Check with GE service.

There is a pc board that senses how long the condensor motor has been running and when it gets to a certain amount of time it turns off the refridgerator condensor and turns on the heater coil that melts any ice formed on the condensor coils untill a temperature sensor says enough then it allows the condensor motor to run again. The problem is definitely in this board which is a common problem with Whirlpool and related brands. This board is about 50 to 75 dollars and can be easily replaced.
