Question about Frigidaire Freezers
I have a frigidaire, it was purchased in the early 2000's, it has a freezer on the top, I do not have the model # or the owners manual. Lately, it has been forming alot of moisture on the top shelf of the refridgerator part. The refridgerator seems to be working well, the freezer part seems to be working too. The moisture turns into water and I have to wipe it off frequently. I changed the lightbulb hoping that would help, but it didn't. Can you give me advice that could possibly fix it. It is white in color, I don't recall the exact date of puchase.
Ok sounds to me like you have one of two problems here on the information you gave, the first thing you should do is check the gaskets around freezer and fridge door...use a sheet of paper,shut the door in cirtain places...if the if the paper slides out without tension air from the out side could be getting in and conndensing into water on the roof and dripping down...if this is the case replace the gasket. Second possiblity and more likley is your drain plug is blocked, this is a tube that leads from below the evaporator to a pan next to the compressor. when the defrost system kicks in the melted ice has nowhere to go because the drain tube is blocked...so it finds its way down the vent into the fridge. Easy way to check is unplug the appliance...take panel out from back of freezer..normally a few screws..once removed check the evaporator and pan below it..is there ice in the pan below and on the evaporator? yes? you have a blockage. easy way to fix is to melt ice with hair dryer...once you see the drain hole in bottom of pan below evaporator..dry up access water the pour hot water into pan...wait a few minutes...dry water up in pan again...repeat this step 2-3 times then stick electrical wire or curtain wire down the hole..when you reach the blockage and clear it you will see water suddenly drain down hole...drain is now unblocked..replace panel plug appliance back in. I hope this helps...please dont hesitate to contact back if you have any further information or question. Good luck!
