Question about Frigidaire Refrigerators
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

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.
