We respect that sentiment and to help you, we have compiled a list of some major Frigidaire problems and their associated solutions. Read through, and see if you find the help you need.

Problem #1: Users with frost free Frigidaire refrigerators have often complained that there is a leakage of water in their refrigerators. In fact, this is one of the most common refrigerator problems that households face.
Solution: Your refrigerator runs an automatic defrost cycle every few hours to prevent ice buildup around the evaporator coils. The defrost water is supposed to clear out through a drain under the coils to an evaporation tray at the bottom of your refrigerator. However, if your drain is blocked with ice or debris, the defrost water will seep into your refrigerator or freezer compartments.
To get rid of this leakage you will need to access and clear your refrigerator’s drainpipe. Remove the bottom rear panel from your freezer, and beneath your evaporator coils you will see the mouth of the drain. Leave your refrigerator unplugged for 24 hours. This will melt away all the ice. Now, you could use a turkey baster to clear your drain off all debris and mold. After this, pour hot water into the drain a couple of times. Finally check if it is clear. After this process, the leakage should stop.
Problem #2: Some Frigidaire users have reported an odd E-F reading on their temperature display. There is an ‘E’ where the freezer temperature should be displayed, and the ‘F’ is under the fresh food temperature display.
Solution: The E-F error code is fairly common in Frigidaire units, and it indicates a problem in the evaporator fan. However, often the actual problem is in the control board of the unit. If you keep your refrigerator disconnected for 8 hours, that will reset your control board and the problem may go away. However, if the E-F message persists, it means that the control board or the evaporator fan are defective and need to be replaced.
Problem #3: Several users have reported that water leaks out to the floor from the bottom of their refrigerator unit. This is not only a very common Frigidaire refrigerator repair issue, but affects households with every other brand.
Solution: This common trouble is caused by a blocked drainage. All modern refrigerators carry an automatic defrost system, and every 6-8 hours, a heating coil melts the ice around the evaporator coils to keep the refrigerator unit running smoothly. This defrosted water collects in a drain pan, and clears out through a drainpipe to the drain tray under the refrigerator, from where it is evaporated by the condenser fan. If water is leaking to the bottom of the refrigerator, it means that the drainpipe is blocked and the defrosted water is spilling out. This may be because of the accumulation of mold and debris at the bottom of the pipe, which restricts the flow of water and causes it to freeze over at the top.
The only solution is to unplug your refrigerator for a few hours and allow it to defrost completely. After this, you will need to remove the rear panel of your freezer and access the drainpipe. Clean it out using a turkey baster, and then flush it out with hot water. This should prevent a leak in the future.
