SOURCE: Frigidaire FRS20ZRG Ice is collecting in the

sounds like the drain is blocked,melt out the ice with a hair dryer until you can remove the bottom bin or draw,and remove the second drawer or bin,look at the inside back wall of the freezer and follow it down to the bottom,if you can't see the drain hole you'll have to remove the wall to get at the drain,slime and food gets stuck in the drain and when the machine defrosts the ice that melts off of the evap coil turns to water and it goes down the drain and down into the pan where it evaporates from the heat of the compressor and condenser but when the drain gets blocked the water has nowhere to go but onto the floor of the freezer and eventually onto the kitchen floor,i use a steemer to blow out the drain hose if you don't have one melt out as much ice that you can and pour hot water into the hole,with something like a turkey baster or anything that will push through the drain will work,when you think it's clear pour more hot water into the drain,if it goes down you're done if not keep at it until the water drains through.hope this helps

Water is leaking from the dispenser area as well as the bottom of the freezer door of frigidaire frs20zrg

It may have been defrosting on a timed cycle when the compressor stopped. If any water was present at the time, it may have seeped into the electrics. Check the fuse and you have power to the on/off switch and thermostat.. If fuse blown, check all is dried out before plugging back in.

Just had a new part # 241734301 installed, because the old one broke during a move. It appears to work fine although the water continues to dribble for a while after filling a glass. Also, the water will...

It seems as though the water hoses are reversed, Ice maker line and water dispenser line are probably switched, this would explain why the water comes out the door intermittently. It's probably trying to dump water into the ice tray but its coming out the door.

Frigidaire fdb510lcs0 soap dispenser not opening


Many dishwashers (but not all) use a BI-metal strip that heats up once poweris applied to it. The BI-metal strip bends and allows the soap door spring toopen up the dispenser. This bi-metal strip is not given full 120 volts power,the timer "shunts" the power through either the heating element (most common ) or the motor and this gives the bi-metal strip lower than fullpower to work and open. Most often the bi-metal strip has lost its ability tobend properly and needs to be replaced. Older GE dishwashers used a mechanicalarm driven by the timer to open the dispenser = no electrical bi-metals.

Newer Frigidaire dishwashers and many newer Whirlpool dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser. The plunger insidethe wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door open. And, if thiswax motor doesn’t receive 120 volts, then it’ll not work.
