High temp alarm


Maybe not defrosting. Take out several baskets until you can get at the screws that hold the back panel on and remove it. Now you should be able to see the evaporator. And likely a lot of ice/heavy frost. In that case, use a blow dryer or heat gun - I used the latter since I had so much solid ice - and start melting the ice away. Before you melt the ice around the defrost thermostat which clamps to one of the evaporator tubes, disconnect its 2 wires and check for continuity. Should have continuity when it's that cold. Then check continuity for the heater element. Usually it's around 30 ohms. If you're lucky, the fault lies with one of those components.

My freezer started getting a lot of frost and ice around the top close to the henges. Now I am getting a lot of ice in the bottom of this freezer. I can break up the ice and remove it and it will be back...


there are only 2 reasons this happens but one cause (defrost element not working) 1st we check the defrost timer is working if not replace it if it is working go on to the last fault it can be - depending on the freezer it will have 1 or 2 defrost elements when one blows the ice will slowly build up if they both blow then the ice will build up within days unless you know your way around a multimeter it will be very hard to determin witch unit has blown in 70% of cases its the element but a service tech can tell you in a matter of minutes to save you time and money i would get a quote to get a tech in but now you know what to look for


best of luck to you
please remember to rate this repair .thank you

Water leaking from under the freezer


Until defrosting the block of ice you canot see if is a hole or crack in the bottom. But I suppose is leaking from the door gasket under the pressure of the ice inside. Anyway, if you want to keep alife your refrigerator, better unplug it, defrosting and clean it before complete annihilation.

Ice forms on the bottom of the freezer and water leaks on the floor water to the ice maker was turned off and that did not solve the problem.


Assuming that this is a self-defrosting freezer (which almost all are today), the defrosting coil or the timer may be bad. The defrosting coil actually warms up the freezer slightly every X hours. This thaws the ice that starts to form in the freezer. The vapor is then evaporated and exists out through a drip tube to the bottom of the freezer/fridge into a pan. The pan usually has the compressor fan blowing over it to evaporate the contents.

Freezer side not freezing


Turn off the refrigerator.Remove the freezer shelves/bins and rear panel.
Take a hair dyer and thaw the ice completely. The defrost heater will be across the bottom of the freezer coil. The defrost thermostat will be attached to a refrigerant coil at the top of the freezer coil.It is about the size of a quarter and 1/2 inch thick.There will be wires from top to bottom on the sides of the coil.

Ice in the bottom of frigidaire side by side frost proof freezer


take all the bottom shelves and baskets out of the freezer. look at the back wall of the freezer. youll see a block of ice in a metal pan looking part at the bottom of the rear panel. there is a hole in the bottom of that pan. thats the defrost drain. its clogged. use a hair dryer to get all the ice out then use hot water to flush out the drain hole.
