Question about Frigidaire 20.6 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator with Factory Installed Ice Maker
Our freezer keeps frosting which is casuing the vents to ice. Therefore our refrigerator compartment is warm. if we disconnect the waterline will this problem be resolved?
This sounds like a low gas issue....assuming that you are not keeping your door open excessively or that the gaskets are not bad or dirty. The water line probably has no part in this.
First, check the gaskets. They must be clean and seal well. Defrost the box completely. Leaving it off for 2 days will do this or use a hair dryer with care after removing the freezer panel. Clean the condenser. Turn the unit on while observing the compressor...the big black thing with the pipes coming out. Look at the largest pipe. It will start to frost up. If the frost clears either to water or dry after 5 minutes of operation, gas is okay. Still frosty...get a service man.

Frost is a natural occurrence on the evaporator coils in the freezer compartment of your refrigerator. To prevent frost buildup, a self-defrosting refrigerator warms the coils using a defrost heater several times each day to melt away the frost. This frost melts into water and flows out of the compartment through the drain. If any part of the defrost system is not working properly, the result can be heavy frost buildup that may affect the cooling capacity of the refrigerator.
The defrost timer is a mechanism that tells the defroster how long to run to melt the frost. The limit switch measures the temperature in the freezer and helps to maintain it, while the heater is the key element that melts the frost. Any one of these components could need replacement at a given time, which will result in this over-frosting.
