Question about Refrigerators
I have a frigidaire Frost Proof top freezer refrigerator. The freezer is icing up on the back wall and I am not getting cool air in the bottom part. I have used the hair dryer to defrost and then we seem to work OK for a few hours. The fan in the freezer is working.
Model is FPCI21TFW1 s/n LA02406477. Tried to locate a manual online but I haven't had any luck.
Any help would be appreciated.
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.
