I had the same thing with my Refrig/Freeze and the repair guy said that most times its a leak around the door seal. Take a piece of paper and put it between the door seal and where it touchs the freezer close the door see if the paper pulls out easly, if it does then you have and air leak, repeat it all the way around the door. Check the bottom side carefully. One other thing check the tempeture in the freezer it only needs to be between 0 and -5. Too cold will also cause air to be pulled through the seals.

Frigidaire Electrolux Frost Free Freezer


Sounds like you need to check if the unit went into a defrost cycle and made any ice build up inside the cabinet "slushy" and the water leveling itself and running down plastic liner parts to a place where it can escape underneath.

The defrost circuit has failed in your fridge. Typical failure is with the defrost heating element. To troubleshoot, you need to remove the remove the contents of your freezer section and remove the freezer back panel to access the evaporator coil. You will need a hair dryer to melt the ice on coil. The heating element is attached to the coil. Use a meter to confirm that the element is bad. Hope this helps you.

2 months old should still be under warenty.

Check the freezer fan by opening the freezer door and pressing the door switch and listing for the freezer fan sound. If no sound then the fan motor could be bad.

Look at the back wall too see if you have frost build up. If you do then you have a defrost problem.

If thees are not your problem you could have a seal system problem. (( freon leak ))

hi ,
your freezer cabinet need to get all out and open the back wall.
  1. you have 2 element that can be check one is the heating element , two is the thermostat.
  2. you need a volt meter to check them.
  3. if the frost is all over the coils then one of the element i told you before, is bad
  4. if the frost is in one area not all over then you got gas leak.
  5. good luck
