Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer


Got your comments, thanks for the post. There was hardly any ice at all when i took the cover off inside the freezer and now the compressor shuts off for defrost but the air inside the freezer just is not cold. The fridge is probably doing ok (even though not at the best) but the freezer is taking the biggest hit on this deal.

If the freezer is not working then the fridge is not working either cold air is blown from the freezer to the fresh food part...

move the dial out of defrost and check the evapator for frost... you can also check the condencer for heat...

My one month old frigidaire gallery is freezing up on the entrance of the ice maker

Hello Anna, thanks for your inquiry!

From the information you have provided your Frigidaire refrigerator is freezing up on the entrance of your icemaker. It sounds like you could have a possible air leak inside of your freezer. You should place a dollar bill between the door and body of the freezer. If the dollar easily comes out with no resistance then your gasket may need to be replaced. You may also have a possible water leak inside of your icemaker. If you appliance is under warranty I would recommend reaching out to the manufacturer for proper assistance towards repair. Hope this is helpful. -Matt

Frigidaire side by side freezer - LOUD noise...

It sounds like the evaporator fan is hitting ice that is built up on the evaporator coil. When it's making the noise, open the freezer door and see if it stops.
(Most models are wired so that the evaporator fan cuts off when the freezer door is open.)
Check the inside back, lower panel of the freezer for ice built up or frost on it. If there is, you have a defrost problem that is most likley a bad heater. It's located around the coil inside the freezer behind the panel you will be looking at. The defrost problem would explain the freezer not freezing ice cream.

Freezer freezing and refrigerator not cooling

When it build up ice in the freezer the cold air can't go through to the fridge , this could be because : the fan doesn't work. the unit is low in refrigerant or the defrost timer or heater are bad , if the fan works take off the back pannel inside the freezer and if is only cover with ice part of it and the rest of the coil is clear of ice ,it means that is low on refrigerant (it is a seal system so there's a leak and has to be repair and recharged with freon), but if the coil is all cover with ice the problem is with the defrost system(timer or heaters) you can check the heaters for continuity if open replaced it if ok replace the timer.

Water collecting and freezing in bottom of freezer

Hi, Remove the rear inside panel of the freezer and locate the drain hole under the evaporator coil. Remove the ice and flush the drain hole with hot water to make sure it is free. You can try running a soft wire through the drain also.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Ice forming and freezing in the freezer bottom

Need to find out if the refrigerator is going into defrost normally, about every 8 to 10 hours. If it does defrost normally, does the drain inside the freezer panel and under the evaporator coil drain without blockage? Defrosted ice, (water) should go down a drain pipe and into a pan near compressor. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

if the evaporator has a full frost pattern it is not your compresser... First I could check your fan motor is it running...if the frost blocks the air flow it will stop cooling.. Next it could be a defrost problem or a plugged drain... to get it to work temporary defrost the freezer. Unplug the refrigerator, open the door and get a blow dryer and warm up the freezer. wait until the water stop dripping out or about 12 to 24 hours and then you can plug it back in . it will work for 2 to 3 weeks. To unplug the drain.defrost the freezer .remove the back cover. Use a pipe cleaner to clear the drain. pour a few cups of hot water down the drain. The defrost systems is:
Start with the timer. It is just under the front kick plate. there is a knob you can turn it slowly.until it clicks off the compressor. then open the freezer and listen . You should hear the heater come on .. it will sizzle when it comes on ...
You will have to remove the back panel of the freezer to check the heater for and thermostat for continuity. Heater are the lease likely part to go bad... I always change thermostat and timers together.
let me know if this helps or we can chat if you need more help
