SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: frigidaire humming freezer not cold enough

For the 25 year old freezer: a replacement compressor of the same BTU rating can be obtained and used as a replacement BUT at 25 years old I DO Not recommend the expense of a compressor replacement.

To the owner of the six year old freezer. The buzzing noise is more than likely the compressor cycling on its overload protector. This is an indication that the compressor has failed. In this case also I do not recommend replacing the compressor. If it was in warranty the manufacturer would bear the cost. Replacement compressor come with a one year warranty.

SOURCE: Frigidaire #FRS24XHA is hot to touch and freezes food on the left

Hi: Those areas are designed to be warm to keep moisture from forming there(Moulion coil). When they get hot it means the fridge is over working. The condenser coils remove the heat from the fridge. When clogged the heat will leave anywhere it can. The moulion coil is the strip you described,and will overheat when the condenser coils wont disperse the heat. Most likely the coils need a good cleaning, on the bottom of the ref. Use a coil brush and a vacuum. Or even an air compressor to blow the dust and hair out; plan on dusting the house too. Pull the grill off the front and clean them. If real bad pull the panel of the lower back and clean it out too. Since you work in detroit the dust and hair on the coils would be like putting a blanket over your radiator. Parts would heat up. I hope it's just the coils. If a compressor is failing you can get the same symptoms. I hope it is the latter for you, as I'm in your boat also. I hope this helps, Jeff

Check the fan down by the compressor to see if it's working . If not , it needs to be replaced .Also check the coils to make sure they are clean of dust , lint , etc... Is the fan inside the freezer working ? The hot sides are good . This means the compressor is working ( the " freon " attracts the heat inside the freezer , pulling it out , to make the freezer cold . The air flow over the sides , help dissapate the heat ) . Without the model number , I cant look up to see how the freezer is made .

FRIGIDAIRE UPRIGHT FREEZER COMPRESSOR VERY HOT


Well I finally found the screws for the front grill. The compressor started cooling off once the seal was put back in place. So I'm going to give that a day or so. Still did not find the coils I'm assuming that they are in the sides. One thing I do know for sure, is that I'm putting you guys in my favorites. I educated myself so much from your website. I'm not sure I ever had a problem except the seal. I don't have the original motor to check but I'm working on getting it back. If I would have found this website before the tech I would have saved $150.00. Thank you so much.

Sounds like it is not working properly to me. If not done already, clean out the radiator and air vents around the compressor to aid cooling.
All freezers and fridges are designed to work in a hot climate so ask if it needs the gas pressure increasing.
If it is gong to cost a lot, now may be the time to get a new more efficient one, it will save you money in the end.
