Question about Frigidaire Refrigerators

Open Question

Frigidaire frt21qrc (18 yrs old) has begun to not freeze ice cream and some other items. Meat that has already been frozen still stays frozen

It sits in my garage and I have made sure there is not a lot of dust and dirt on the back or underneath it.

SOURCE: Freezer problems







If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat
check here
In most of the new units they now have the adaptive defrost control. It senses when to defrost based on how many times and for how long the door is opened. It's more energy efficient but there does seem to be lots of problems with the board.

SOURCE: bosch frost free fridge freezer not freezing ice cream/pops at all and meat not totally frozen

Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.

  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer/board
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items. If it still has a problem then it might be the compressor and you should probably replace the machine.

Icecream not staying froze meat stays frozen though


Meat is always more dense than frozen dairy product. This soft ice cream issue usually occurs when the circulating fan becomes blocked due to overloading.
Unlike a chest type freezer, top mounted freezers use a fan to circulate to the refrigerator. If the return vents to the freezer become blocked by too many small items, or loose plastic bags the compressor may run too long in an attempt to lower the refrigerator temp,
This may cause the compressor to heat up and kick in the overload safety, further dropping the total temperature.

Ice Cream won't stay frozen it get's all soft and gross. Main things in the freezer stay frozen.


This is an easy one!!
Ice cream needs to be around -5 degrees to +5 degrees to stay frozen (or hard) if the freezer is at like 15 degrees the ice cream will be soft but the rest of the things like meat and ice cubes will be rock solid because anything lower than 32 degrees is freezing for those things.So you might wanna check to see if the fan motor is working and also make sure the condensor coil is free of debris.

Some items in freezer are not frozen: bread, cool whip, etc. Meat and veggies ARE frozen. any idea?


This is normal for these particular items. They don't "seem" to be frozen but they are fine. If everything else is frozen that should be, like, ice cream, ice cubes, frozen vegetables, then you don't have a problem. Do make sure your freezer is not building up ice anywhere and that the door is completely shut when you close it.

Freezer not freezing


not freezing icedraem is an issue, bread not so much, different breads contain different ingrediants that may or may not freeze, forst offthough wher is unit located??? in garage??? if so be aware that it may not operate efficiently ion ambient temps lower then 55 degrees, but if this is in your kitchen i would suspect a "refrigeration"/sealed system issue, perhaps "low on charge and not able to maintain a frozen set temp. Meat may stay frozen ( for a little while anyway, but the ice cream is the first to show indications of problem
