Question about Refrigerators

2 Answers

I have a frigidaire refrigerator with top freezer. model frt21nfrd2. About 12 years old. With a light inside you can see light in the top right of the refrigerator door. Seems to seal good every where else. The freezer door was eazy to align, but how do you align the bottom door. I loosened two bolts at the bottom hinge and had someone try and lift the door but did not help. I did not know how much pressure to put on the door--can't afford to buy one right now--and I did not want to take the bolts all the way out. Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated. I am certainly a novice at this type stuff. Thanks

Good day,
If you need to lift the main door, first remove all product from both doors. Shut off the machine. Too much stress on the compressor running with no doors.
Remove top cabinet bracket for the freezer door and lift freezer door off.
Remove center bracket, and lift main door off. Keep track of all shims and spacers.
You wil need additional spacers between the bottom bracket and the main door.
However, sometimes the door pin opening on the bottom of the main door has deteriorated and cannot be repaired. Check visually as to it's condition.
If it is beyond repair, then one solution is to reverse the doors to make use of the other side of the main door. Parts may be necessary from your local appliance parts house.

Unit is running just not cold in fridge and freezer is warm


It probably needs a defroster timer. You can take it apart and clean the contacts with some sand paper to fix the old one. It's located just behind the light bulb. You will have to lower the cover for the light to get to it. Defrost the top freezer by leaving it off for a period of time or take the shelves out and blowing hot air into the rear vents until ice melts. Then reinstall timer and plug back in. Get the whole model number and go to appliancepartspro.com to get a diagram. I fixed mine in less than an hour. frt18il6dw

My frigidaire refrigerator is sweating on the inside. what should i do? its a one door model with ice maker and freezer on top. i don't remember the model. 5 years old.


High humidly could cause condensation or the magnetic seal could be bad.
A couple of things to try;
The easiest thing to do first is to clean around the rubber seal very good with mild soap and water and the metal which the magnetic rubber seal contacts to seal the door. If you find a crack or a deformation of the seal it will let condensation it the refrigerator.
Does the freezer auto defrost or is a lot of ice bult up around the freezer walls? If so manually defrosted the freezer.
Dripping from the Ice maker water supply?
