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.

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
I understand that your ice cream inside of your Frigidaire refrigerator, FFUS2613L. I would turn down your thermostat to see if that would help correct the issue of your ice cream not freezing. I hope this helps. -Matt
I interpret that you are having trouble with the freezer of your Frigidaire refrigerator not freezing ice cubes. It appears that your refrigerator is not properly cooling. Make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly. Please allow 24 hours for temperature to stabilize. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your freezer status has changed successfully. Thank you!
is the fan not working in it..may be jammed up..we had an old unit that did this all the time.. the door seal was bad allowing house humidity inside and it wpuld frost up so bad the fan got stuck..we eventually bought another used unit..
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.
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.
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
yes a leak I was typing about was a gas leak..
You say you have a leak in the door? is there ice on the floor of the freezer? if you have that problem then you have a plugged drain ..let me know and I can tell you how to fix this problem..
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:
HEATER-DEFROST THERMOSTAT-DEFROST TIMER-DEFROST
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
