Question about Frigidaire Refrigerators
Remove the back panel in the freezer (#10 on the cabinet break down diagram) and check how the evaporator coil (#15 on the system break down diagram) is covered with snow. If the fridge is running for a while then the evaporator coil should be about 100% covered with thin snow.
or else it may be faulty defrost system. If the evaporator coil is still frozen up, locate the defrost timer and using a flat screwdriver, slowly turn the shaft in the middle of the timer CW until it clicks. The compressor should stop and the refrigerator is in the defrost mode now.
Wait about 10 minutes and check if the defrost heater is hot or (if it's covered with ice) for the sizzling noise from the heater area.
If it's heating up, then the problem is a bad defrost timer.
If it's not heating up, check the defrost heater for continuity. Replace if it's open.
If the defrost heater is fine, replace the defrost thermostat.
