Default water freezes in bottom of freezer
Model Number: FRS26ZGGB6   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Moisture or water collects in bottom of freezer section (side by side), thus freezing bottom basket and anything else down there. Would new gasketing solve this or is it something else? Note, ice maker is not connected so no water entering from there.

thanks

denman is a name known to all

Here are your parts
Replacement parts for FRIGIDAIRE FRS26ZGGB6 Frg(v2) / Refrigerator | AppliancePartsPros.com

Probably just the drain is plugged, see Item 62 and 64 in Section 6.

Remove the cover inside the freezer so you can get at it.
It is probably frozen so use a hair dryer to defrost it.
Do not chip the ice out.
Then clear the clog a turkey baster with warm/hot water often works here.
If you see any growth in the tube flush it with a 10% bleach solution, let it sit for 15 minutes and then do it again. Flush with warm watrer when done. With luck this will kill the algae and flush it out.
Just be careful no not overflow the drip tray.

Also check that the drip tray is not cloggerd with dust where the drain tube is.

It is also a good time to clean the condenser coils and the fan under the unit. a
