Popped off the front plastic cover on the bottom of the fridge, under the doors. Two screws held the defrost timer on under the front side of fridge (below freezer door). You can't really see the timer except for the adjustment knob that is accessible through a hole. Once the screws are removed, disconnect the wire plug and remove and replaced unit. Works fine ever since.

Refridgerator not cooling n freezer iceing up.

This fridge is less than 2 years old really disappointed with frigidaire quality. Had a appliance repair guy diagnose the problem and paid $45 for the service call but decline for him to do the repair for $320. Remove the cover 4 screws holding it on top of fridge the defrost timer is inside 2 screws and you just unplug and replace with a new one. The defrost thermostat is in the freezer compartment, remove the ice maker if equiped then remove back cover, cut out the old thermostat n crimp in the new one. So far the fridge is working but still not getting as cold as before but good enough to keep things safe. Thanks to partselect.com i saved a bunch of money doing it myself.

No way to determine which exact part you need without speaking to a representative. I KNEW I should have made a phone contact and NOT depended on my interpretation of the part via the web. If you objective with the web is to make things easier for customers, it did not. When I called, the person on the other end was great. There was no way I could have ordered the correct part, or known which one it was, from the web alone.

I snapped the parts into place. The fact that the parts I recieved were original parts from Frigidaire made all the difference. I feel if the parts had been after market parts they would not have fit so well.

Water leaking from fridge-drain tube cracked

  • Customer: Gerald from Goshen, IN
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Used a screwdriver and unstuck the tape holding the tube in place. Then, just wiggled the tube loose and snapped a new one in. Didn't bother trying to tape the new one. It stayed just fine. Space was a bit tight to work in, but not too bad. The most difficult part was figuring out that the water was actually coming from the fridge, not from a leaky faucet or drain. And the fridge was difficult to move, because it has no rollers in the front.

First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the wiring harness plug, replaced the old timer with the new one, re-connected the wiring harness and reinstalled the mount in position. Hardest thing about it was lying on the floor.

I called PartSelect, informed them what I needed, They helped me all the way telling me what parts I needed. I placed my order. That day i received an email informing me that the order was placed and within two hours I received an email that my order was shipped. I received my order the next day. I went to my rental property and installed the new handle. It was easy.

Looked up similar problems and found it to be the defrost timer. All I had to do was remove the plastic portion in the fridge section to get to the old timer. Popped the new one in and put it back together. Works great now. Would have been almost $150 to have a repair company come out and fix it.
