The defrost circuit has a problem, allowing the frost/ice buildup..
remove the shelves, and back lower cover in the rear of the freezer to expose the evaporator coil, defrost heater, and defrost thermostat.
the defost heater should have continuity through it and the defrost thermostat will have continuity when frozen but test open when warmed.. if either bad replace.
if both test good look for bad connections in the freezer compartment wiring, and moly connectors otherwise the temperature controls are bad and it is an electronic assembly that incorporates the temperature controls with the deforst timer controls..
hope this helps,
best of luck,
ttfn

My refrigerator's inner fan was making weird noises. After some time I poked it and then it stopped moving. The fan is now unable to turn. What should I do?


Two things could be wrong. Motor bad or frozen up with ice.The noise could have been
from frost building up and hitting the fan.If this is the case you need to defrost. Even self
defrost models do this some times..Empty freezer and run a hair blower (dryer) to put heat
in the compartment. this could take a while to do. over night...So run blower for a while to heat up the freezer then shut it off, close door .let sit It takes time for the heat to get to the ice.

if the motor is bad you will have to take inside cover off the access the motor

My Frigidaire side by side is not making ice. (Model GLRS267ZAW1)It goes through the cycle but no water is getting into the icemaker. I can pour water in to the icemaker and it makes the ice and dumps it....


The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.

Frost buildup around the inside top of the door of an upright Frigidaire Commerical Frostfree Freezer Mod# FFU20IC8Cw2


This happens when your thermistor gets frozen along with the coils or there is a clogging of the freezer drain which causes Ice to build up and spread to the system. Another issue is that your thermistor may be faulty, telling the system inaccurate temperature. Incorrect freon pressure can also be a cause. I would advise first to have the ice melted by letting the unit stay unplugged and have it cleaned while at it.

Hi, look inside freezer and see if there is a frost build up on the rear wall. Also listen to see if the evapotator fan motor is running.
Please let me know so I can assist you further.

Frost buildup in frost free freezer


There is a defroster built into the ice maker to melt the ice a little around the edges before dispensing on most ice makers it may need replacing.

Top of freezer thawing


Ice build-up in the area of the door could be causing the door gaskets to loose their seal. Shut the unit off and use a hair drier to melt the ice away from the door area. Return the control to run position and see if it makes a difference.
