Frigidaire Refrigerators - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


At the back of the freezer is locate the evaporator and below it is a drip pan to collect the water produced during the defrost cycle. Some equipment defrost every 12 hours so that is why you see the ice formation at mornings. You need to flush the drain hose by blowing with compressed air, or suction ut from its end below the outback of the unit. Also you can use a flexible ;plastic rod and carefully pass it thru the hose from the bottom ow the drip pan.

The solenoid valves, located in the lower back of the refrigerator, where the water line enter the unit has a filter mesh at the inlet. Mineral formation or debris from the tube lines block the water pass and present the symptoms you describe. Also, when units do not have this filter mesh, the mineral deposit and debris obstruct the water valve mechanism and the water flow. If you have good pressure at the valve entrance, but not at the output, replace the solenoid valves.

I had the same problem. After 6 months I contacted Frigidaire about it. They made arrangements with a local factory service repairman. Be sure you have your model and S/N available. The repairman came to my home, verified the problem and returned a week later and installed the replacement door dispenser. Problem solved.

There is a pan under the refrigerator that condensation drips into. Pull that pan out and clean it out. You access the pan by removing the front lower grill but some you have to pull the fridge away from the wall to access it from the rear

This could be two things, i have had fridges get louder with age, its the refrigerant returning to the compressor after condensing, but it could also be because its low on refrigerant. If the fridge is cooling normally and not having an issue getting cold then i would just leave it alone until it has further issues. Most places don't service them anymore, if your really really lucky you might find an appliance repair place that can send a tech out to check the refrigerant on the fridge, but the rule of thumb unfortunately is they are a sealed system, and if they get low its because they have a leak, and the leak is usually due to seals wearing out in the compressor, and a new compressor costs more then a new fridge!

I reckon it maybe over heating, take it down to the shop for a look at, around $15 plus parts.

If you want to know the amount in JUST the refrigerator, I don't see it in my reference guide, however, it's usually about 75% of the total.
Here's the specs that I DO have:
Frigidaire refrigerator, model FRT18L4FW3, 29.5''W x 30''D x 65.5''H, 18.2 cu ft

Yes 2 common problems. 1) The evaporator is frozen due to a defrost problem, jamming the fan: Is there frost on the food side of the back panel in the freezer? Yes;defrost problem. No= 2) the evaporator fan is defective. Remove the panel and test for power at the fan WITH THE DOOR SWITCH in the CLOSED position. Power with no operation would indicate a bad motor.

there is a part called air damper motor,and they have a bad habit of failing of people put things too close to the opening and air can not get thru from the freezer

Fixya is global in scope, therefore unable to locate specific parts suppliers.

Try and reset the sensors by unplugging your unit for at least 60 minutes(timed) and then plug it back in and see if you get the same result. If not, then your issue SHOULD be fixed. If not, the sensor inside the unit may have shorted out or the wire chassis needs to be verified for integrity.
Once all of this is completed, if you are still having the issue, replace the sensor, if you are a DIY type person, or purchase the replacement sensor and get someone you know to replace it for you.
Hope this helps
***PLEASE NOT THAT IF YOU LIVE IN AN AREA THAT IS BEING AFFECTED BY THE ARTIC WEATHER, YOUR RESET TIME MAY HAVE TO BE LENGTHENED AS, OUTSIDE AIR CAN AFFECT THESE TYPE UNITS. ESPECIALLY IF IT IS NOT IN A TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENT.***
