Question about Frigidaire Refrigerators
Hi, Unplug the refrigerator. The automatic defrost is not working properly. You will need to remove the rear panel inside the freezer section and test the defrost heater and bi-metal switch. The bi-metal switch located on the top of the evaporator coil needs to be tested while it is still cold. Check and see if the switch has continuity. If the bi-metal switch shows an open circuit, replace it. If it shows a closed circuit, test the defrost heater the same way. If both the defrost heater and the bi-metal switch are ok, the defrost timer will need changed.
You will need to defrost the evaporator coils with a hair dryer. Please let me know if this helps you at all or if I can assist you further.

Have you cleaned the coils underneath (or back)? Is the condensor fan running?
