Question about Whirlpool GD5SHAX Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Frigidaire side by side suppose to be frost free

The freezer side of my side by side looks just like one of those old time freezers that you had to defrost yourself. Why? We had to take the doors off to get it in my home. If you let the door shut on it's own, the freezer door will slightly open.

I do not have too much info but if you slam the door on your refig side it can cause the freezer to open air is the issue if there is a block of ice on the back wall of the freezer you have a defrost issue you either have have a bad bimetal or defrost control board issue the bimetal is located on the evaporator and the control board is in right hand corner of the refig near the damper area wher the cold air comes in from the freezer if you have cleared the ice out of freezer and you still have frost make sure your door gaset is sealing properly that can cause frost to help the freezer door from poping open make sure there is some weight in the freezer door fill the selfs up on the door itself and make sure the unit is as level as possible

Our Frigidaire frost frost free upright freezer from day one has frost build up on the food inside the packages. The frost is not a problem in the freezer itself, but on the food. Freezer burn occur


Hi Dale Dibb, thank you for your inquiry!

I understand that the food inside of your Frigidaire freezer is getting frost on the inside of the packages. I would recommend turning the temperature up inside of your freezer. Additionally moisture inside of the package would cause frost to develop on the inside of the food packages.

Please assure that all possible moisture has been removed out of the food packages prior to placing the items inside of the freezer. If there is anything else that I can help you with, please feel free to reconnect! -Matt

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 ))

My Frigidaire upright freezer is only 4 years old & isn't working


freezers have safety devices to protect themselves. The compressor has an internal overload to keep it from overheating. some have external reset buttons and some do not. either way the cause must be corrected. if the freezer was low on refrigerant you would see signs of oil near the coils, tubing, or compressor. If there is no leak, it overheats when there is airflow restrictions(dirty coils) or a fan has stopped working. only a few screws keep you from seeing all there is to see. If it is clean and the fan is running, then the compressor may just be the culprit

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.
