Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a frigidaire LFTR1814LB. It has been leaking water from the freezer into the refrigerator section for about a month. A couple days ago it started making an obnoxiously loud vibrating sound periodically and now the freezer is working fine but the refrigerator isnt cooling enough. I can feel a little cool air blowing in from the freezer but not much. The freezer does has a small amount of ice built up over the vent/ back wall

SOURCE: refrig not cooling

Hi,
Usually when this happens it is because of a problem with the fan that moves cold air from the freezer section of your unit to the refrigerator section. Either the fan has gone bad or the unit has frosted up to the point of stopping the fan. Try defrosting (unplugging) the unit over night and then check it to see if the fan runs. If not then replace the fan. If it runs and then stops after awhile like days or even a few weeks, then you may need a defrost timer.
The other thing that can cause this is the heating element going bad, but this is not usually the problem. The element can be checked with an OHM meter. If the coil does not have any resistance then it is bad.


You can find parts for your unit by doing a search for “appliance parts”.
Once you get the results of the search, pick a site and when it comes up it will usually ask for the model number of your unit.
Enter your model number and you will then get a page with exploded views and a parts menu.
Find the part you need and then order it.
Check a few different sites to be sure that you are getting the best pricing.
Most sites can have the part to you in a couple of days.
I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Hey friend, thank you for the post!

From my understanding you have water leaking out of the freezer of your Frigidaire refrigerator and onto the floor. I would like to ask you a couple of additional questions. First, do you see where the water is coming from? Secondly, what is the model number of your appliance? You can locate your serial tag (which lists your model number) on the inside cabinet of the fresh food compartment normally on the left side in a top mount. But on a side by side it can be found on the right hand side. I look forward to hearing back from you. -Matt

If the defrost heating element, defrost timer or evaporater fan weren't working, you'd develop a block of ice on the evaporator. Is the compressor running? If it is, it might have bad valves from the frost buildup scenario. Liquid refrigerant could have gotten to the suction valves. The sealed system should have a five year warranty. Might be time to call a pro

Ice accumulation at bottom of freezer


Hi, Remove the rear inside panel of the freezer and locate the drain hole under the evaporator coils.
Use a hair dryer and melt the ice. Make sure and get the ice out of the drain hole as well.
After the ice is removed, be sure and flush the drain hole with hot water. A baisting surenge works great for the flush.
I hope this helps you. If I can assist you further, please let me know.

Water Leaking - Freezer


My mother's fridge had a leak on the freezer side in the front. I removed the cover below the doors and found a plastic coupling in the water line to the water in the door option, when anyone filled their glass with water the coupling leaked. I bought a new plastice 1/4 inch coupling and replaced the old one and the problem was solved. The coupling costs about $3.00 a Lowe's and it took about 2 min. to change.

Leaking water


dianaluscou,

The freezer has a drain hole in it typically in the back at the bottom. This is clogged and needs to be cleared out in order to stop the water problem in the refrigerator section. Remove everything from the freezer and if needed defrost. Look for the drain hole and you can pour hot water or use a hair dryer to melt the ice in the drain. Once it is unclogged, the water problem should stop.

I just did this about 6 months ago on my own refrigerator/freezer.
