SOURCE: frost in "frost-free" freezer

Hi, This is my suggestion to check the defrost timer. "I would suspect the defrost timer. Remove everything and place in coolers or another refrigerator. Unplug the refrigerator. With doors open let it sit for aprox 6 hrs. A fan blowing into the freezer section will help. Plug back in and see if it works good again. If it works good for a couple of days and problem returns, Replace the defrost timer." Sound like you have already done my little test so the defrost timer needs replaced. NOTE: Refrigerators are well insulated and it takes several hours to completely defrost one so you may want to try it again. Also, I believe the clicking you hear is the fan blade hitting ice. Hope this helps. Let me know. kstfas

SOURCE: Frigidaire Frost=Proof Is Icing

There is a defrost timer located in the refrigerator compartment in the area of the controls. It will be covered by a plastic panel but there will be a hole in the plastic through which you can access the clutch head screw to advance it into defrost. Turn the screw clockwise very SLOWLY until you hear one audible click. this will put the system into the defrost mode. Defrost should happen in 18-22 minutes . after the 18-22 minutes the system should automatically return to cooling. If it does not restart after 25 minutes turn the screw a little farther to the second click. If you had to turn the screw the second time to restart the cooling replace the timer.

If the system restarts automatically but does not defrost your problem is an open defrost heater or defrost thermostat. These are located behind the back wall inside the freezer section.

check your door seal, by closing the door on a strip of newspaper all round the seal. this fault is usually air getting inside the freezer, it rises to the top making thick ice or snow.

Frigidaire upright model ffu21k2cw1 frost on top shelf and not cooling properly


http://manuals.frigidaire.com/prodinfo_pdf/StCloud/216802800en.pdf
Your unit is not self defrosting so I would suggest you do a manual defrost and see if it corrects the problem.
Also make sure that you have good air flow across the compressor.

I have a frigidaire freezer upright model#ffu20f9gw3


Without any additional info, there are a lot of possibilities:
1. Condenser coil (underneath unit) is dirty and clogged.
2. Compressor is failing. (need A/C tech)
3. Metering device is clogged. (need A/C tech)
4. Refrigerant charge is low. (need A/C tech)
5. Door seal is broken (frost will form around door).
6. Defrost heaters are stuck on (replace defrost timer located underneath unit at front).
7. Condenser fan has failed (underneath freezer on back).
8. Evaporator fan (inside fan) has failed (ice will form on cooling coil).

This should get you started...

If this helps you, please select YES to the first two ratings questions. Thank you, and Good Luck.

Check rear wall of freezer by feel for frost. Heavy, even frost indicates likely problem in the defrost system. Unplug unit. Defrost heater (in freezer behind rear wall panel), defrost thermostat (same area-must be checked at freezer temperature) or Defrost timer-located lower back outside of unit. Near compressor. Do continuity test on heater and defrost thermostat and if they show continuity (good), replace defrost timer. If not, replace the one that tests bad.

Defrost coils fully. Reassemble.

Please let me know if I have helped with comments and rating.

Refrigerator will work about 7-10 days after being defrosted until thick frost builds up again cutting off air flow to both compartments

Not all shelves freezing Alarm on


If this is not a frost free unit. I say replace it. I don't believe in recharging a deep freeze. You can never really trust them again. The food inside is worth more than the freezer. If this is a frost free unit, See if the fan inside is working. This can also be a defrost system proplem such as a timer and well worth fixing.
