Frigidaire Loud Fan Noise
I have a 3 year old Frigidaire, i believe model FFHS2611LB (it doesn't say in the manual or a similar model number inside of fridge). A few months ago, on the weekend of course, a fan from the back top of the freezer kicks on and is extremely loud. Called the repair man and tells me he can't get here until Monday but from what he hears throuhg the phone the fan is hitting built up ice or the fan is on its way out. Other symptoms when this happened was the freezer temp increased, the water line to the door froze (I think, it just would not work), and water would come out of the front door where the ice and water dispenser is.
I found a website that thought it was something in the defrosting portion, but I cannot find that website again.
I ended up turning the freezer down 1 number (warmer) and it did not do this for the last 4-5 months. low and behold today it is back again. We have been in the freezer more than usual this week and it is hot and humid here.
Does anyone have any clues as to where to start looking for this problem? I am planning on fixing this myself, but know absolutely nothing about these units.
