May you adjust the thermostart switch, start it from the lowest point point while you are observing the changes meaning how it does react with the adjusted range.Last test it with ohmeter if it does break and make the circuit.

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

How to stop top freezer from ice ing up on (frost free) fridge HOT POINT

i recently had the problem of my freezer ice ing up on my " HOTPOINT" 18cu" fridge. i kept taking everything out and manualy de-frosting it. i got so frustrated doing this every 3-5 days so i did this : Behind the plastic cover at the back there is a coil. attached to this coil is a round silver part with wires attached to it. it is somekind of temperature sensor. this was the culprit.. here is wat i did to fix my problem.. : FIRST " UNPLUG FRIDGE" !! remove all contents, remove both BOTTOM AND TOP PLASTIC COVERS, if coil is all ice, thaw with hair dryer, if not iced up look for a SILVER , ROUND, sensor approxamately 3\4" high by 1" across. <----{ this sort of looks like a plastic bottle cap.. }CUT WIRES as close to this sensor as possible. REMOVE from coil will just pull off of coil. take care not to damage this coil or tube in the process.. with this sensor removed , just use yellow or orange wire nut and put these wires TOGETHER and attach wire nut and wrap electrical tape around wire nut and wire. put plastic covers back into place, put all contents back into freezer, plug fridge back in.. " D O N E ". its been 4months now and fridge and FREEZER work better then ever... this fix cost me $0.00 i can't get photo into here. sorry.. this process takes about 10 to 30 minutes to complete..

I have a frost free refrigerator (MODEL #: FGTD 20V4GW2 and SERIAL #: ba00230071) yet the ice/frost builds up of the door, top and front of the freezer. Also the bottom compartment where the milks,...

if ice is on the door and ceiling and frozen water dropleats on the food packages the door was left open and the air ducts are frozen.when you open the freezer door do you hear the fan blowing,if not it could be bad or iced up,if the ice is on the inside back wall of the freezer you have a defrost problem,get back to me and tell me if the ice or like snow is just on the back wall or if the door was left open ice will be on ceiling ,door and shelves and food packages,also that's not a good model number if the freezer is on top look at the left wall up near the ceiling in the fridge section,you should see a tag there with the model number.

Freezer frosts up to the point of not being able to open the door without ice falling on the floor. Can this be fixed?

Yes it can be fixed, This can be as simple as replacing the door seals if bad to replacing the defrost board.If the seals are good and the doors close and seal as they should then the defrost is not working properly.

My freezer is frosting up on the back wall and sometimes makes a clicking noise. It also takes about 4 hours to freeze the water in my ice cube trays. What is the problem and any suggestions how to fix it?

You could very well have a defrost issue at the evaporator coil. Every evap coil, which is located in freezer section, will eventually accumalate ice by virtue of moisture hitting a -5 degree coil. The point though is that 2 to 3 times a day the freezer should cycle into a 10 to 20 minute defrost. There are three components to the defrost cycle... the defrost control (which can either be a timer, or a circuit board), a defrost heater, and a defrost sensor. Some of the Whirlpools had defrost sensor problems that were built between 2000 and 2008.

In all honesty, unless you feel comfortable removing the back interior panel in the freezer, then I suggest calling a professional
