do you see any frost on the rear panel of the freezer section ,half way down? and also can you hear a fan running in the freezer section?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
yes two both
Expert:  Randy 43 replied 2 years ago.
if you have frost on the rear panel and the fan is working then you have a defrost problem , freezer is not defrosting , on the frigidaire models it is usually the defrost thermostat or the connection to the thermostat ,,you can check the heater for continuity but its usually never the heater , remove that lower panel ,thaw the frost from the coil and replace the defrost thermostat ,splice it in can get a universal 50 deg one if you dont have the full model number ,if you do have it i can find the exact part number
