Refrigeration circuit charge
It would help to have refrigerant type.
The pressures will vary according to load, as when it is first started up. The best way is to weigh the amount of refrigerant charged. By charging by feel, can read the compressor current draw, it is safe to not exceed 1/6th of the compressor LRA. Can charge slowly by filling the evaporator to feel cold refrigerant from entrance to exit.
Condensor may fill with the bottom 1/3 cooler than the hot/warm top. Overfilling will overload the compressor, frost appears on the suction line, first portion of the evaporator may not cool off and actually be warmed.

Fridgidare upright freezer running won't shut off automatically
If it is full of food & you can't see the back this happened to us; see if the plastic striping that runs down the back corners got shoved down out of proper placement. It's suppose to seal like weather striping or caulk. It will cause the problems you're describing. Around the door too bottom as well. The inside of ours got smudged down & had no clue til I had to start removing the contents.

Frost build up around ice dispenser
Does you ice dispenser serve ice through the door? If yes, then It's likely that room air is entering your freezer through the ice exit, and condensing as ice on your ice maker.
It's a very common problem; The flap isn't sealing tightly after ice is delivered through the chute. Clean you ice maker, removing all the ice, and then stuff the exit chute with plastic grocery bags. The bags will force the flap tight against the chute, and add a layer of insulation from room air. Keep an eye on ice development, for a few days, and if you're confident you've found the problem, order a replacement ice door.

My fridge has water pooling on the top shelf
Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back of freezer..you may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer
/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curatain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the Freezer is because the water has been leaking into the freezer instead of running into the drain hole...If you need any further assistance please feel free to comment again. good luck! P.s Please don't forget to rate my solution thanks! Mike.
