Hi
You can use a hair dryer to melt the ice around fan. The water will drain down to pan near compressor. However, if the quantity of ice is large then you may use towels to collect the water. Ice on coils happens because of defrost heater not working or a faulty defrost timer, if the coils have frost deposit on them again then check the defrost heater and defrost timer, you can also test the thermostat before replacing any part. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

    Then check the defrost thermostat and if bad replace it

    First try to locate the defrost timer and once you
    locate the defrost timer, slowly turn the screw like
    wheel in
    the middle of the defrost timer with a straight screwdriver until the fridge
    shuts off. You are now in defrosting. If the
    defrost
    heater(s)
    comes
    on now, replace the defrost timer and defrost thermostat. If the heater(s) does
    not come on, you can
    ohm test
    the defrost heater for continuity or
    volt test
    for 120 volts to the heater(s). If you have no power to the
    defrost
    heater(s)
    you
    can also bypass the defrost thermostat to see if the defrost heater will come
    on,
    join
    the 2 wires together
    to
    bypass the defrost thermostat. If the heater now comes on, replace the defrost
    timer and defrost thermostat. If the heater itself is bad, defrost the fridge
    with a hair dryer, replace the defrost timer
    and defrost
    thermostat
    .
    Hope
    this helps...please post back for further assistance.

The cold control needs replacing. Thats the knob with the numbers that turn the Ref OFF and ON.

Get freezer and ref thermometer. Ref is probably too cold.

I don't know what happened to my refrigerator but it is starting to freeze everything. I couldn't change filter because it was stuck, frozen in place. So i had to turn the fridge off so it could thaw out...


1 setting on a fridge is as cold as it can get so it will be close to freezing
should be set on 4 or 5
next if it still is freezing then the thermostat is failed and you will need to replace it

My aquastar 125b ng froze in cold weather and spewed water everywhere. when installes I was told it was ok to have this unit on outside wall. ... any suggestions


Generally speaking, tankless water heaters should not be installed on an outside wall, especially if they are masonary (which lose more heat to the outside) - regardless of what the installer told you. If the wall reaches & goes below the freezing point, so will the water pipes supplying the heater. However I am somewhat surprised that the heating element did not compensate, if indeed it was the heater that froze. I would recommend moving the heater to an interior wall if possible. You may also want to check the thermostat setting as well.

The freeze plug came out and water drained.Now when I fill truck back up with water .It runs out of spark plugs holes.


what exactly caused the freeze plug to come out if it froze hard enough to push out freeze plug then it most likely has caused other damage the only way water is coming out of plug holes is the water is entering the cylinders i suspect you either have a cracked cylinder head or a cracked cylinder wall i have seen this on one other engine were it froze and bursted the cylinder wall i reccomend removing cylinder head for further inspection

Water filter froze solid


Your refrigerator compartment temprature is below 32 degrees and freezing your water in the filter. Adjust the thermostat setting to a higher temprature setting using a thermometer in the referigerator as a refrence. 34-37 degrees is a good temprature range to keep food fresh.

The fill cup and the water inlet tube are filled with frozen water. There seems to be enough water pressure coming out of the wall and there aren't any leaks. What could be causing this?


Hello LaraKettler,
If the ice is in the water line going to the icemaker then you have a slow leak from the inlet valve allowing water to leak into the line and freezing in the water inlet tube. Replace valve
If you have water freezing in the freshfood side of your refrigerator most likely you have a thermostat problem or you may need to turn your thermostat down. For most models 5 is a good setting to keep your freshfood side around 36 degrees. Hope this helps, please let me know if you have any other questions. MCA0824@aol.com

Everything freezes in the refrigerator


Your damper that controls the air to the fridge side is stuck open. It can be caused by moisture getting on it and freezing it so it wont close or by a failure in the electrical circuit that controls it. There was a service bulletin from about 3-4 years ago about defective control assemblys. I have replaced several and as far as I know Frigidaire is still replacing some of them for free if they fall under the model and serial numbers that were affected.
You can tell if it is frozen by turning the controls off and thawing the damper at the upper left rear of the fridge section with a hair dryer.. After you have it thawed out, turn the controls back on and you should hear the damper door motor running. Keep your thermometer in it and check it after a while and see if it shuts off before it freezes.
Post back with the complete model and serial numbers and I will try to locate the service bulletin at my shop computer tomorrow.
