Many of the frigidaire units had problems with the defrost termination thermostat located in the freezer compartment. (I have repaired many). It is around 12 dollars
It is clipped to a tube located in behind the freezer back panel. take out the
plastic vent and motor, unplug the motor (very carefully to prevent pulling out the
leads) the defrost termination thermostat has two leads and is clipped onto a
tube. The replacement will have heat shrink and wire nuts, but I often use
**** splices under heat shrink tubing to ensure no moisture gets into the connections and a dab of silicone at the ends of the heat shrink. Make sure the "colder" knob
is set in the middle on the vent stack as this will cause problems if set to "colder".
I have only seen one defective defrost timer (incorrectly assembled) which caused the
gear to stick in one position. You can manually rotate the timer to check operation with
a screwdriver in the access hole on the bottom of the temp control panel. (oddly the new timers are of a different make if it has failed). Unplug unit before servicing.

Water collecting in the container.


It does sound like it might be the recent excess of humidity we've been having. Once dryer weather comes, see if it's still happening. It does take a while for cold water to evaporate from just the heat of the fan blowing over the compressor.
Only other thing i can think of is, it's defrosting more often than it should be, meaning you may have a bad defrost timer. It should only be defrosting once a day. But I'd give it time before ripping it apart.

I have an upright Premium larder fridge,about 18/12 old. It keeps freezing everything. We have 'defrosted' it more than once but it keeps happening. Any ideas?


If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

Fitted tall larder fridge freezing up on the back wall what is the problem and how do l sort.


If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.
