Frigidaire Refrigerators - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


If you have a Frigidaire refrigerator with an icemaker, you may notice that water leaks from the icemaker from time to time. There are several reasons why this occurs, ranging from simple fixes to ones that are more complex. Once you notice leaking water, running through a quick checklist determines the problem, so that you can fix it.
Plastic Tubing Water Supply ConnectionsNo matter the type connection material used, it must be tight and secure so that no water leaks out. Check every place where a pipe connects to the appliance. Make sure the connection is tight and that there are no leaks. Ensure that the water supply valve is turned on completely. As you check each connection, watch that there are no drips. Tighten them if you catch any possible issue, as this could solve your problem.Clogged Condensation DrainWater can appear leaking from the icemaker when it is actually caused by a clogged condensation drain. The automatic defrost system occasionally turns on, melting any frost from the cooling coils. The resulting water falls into a drain sending it to a pan to evaporate. However, if ice from the icemaker makes it into this drain, it can clog it, and the water accumulates in either the fresh-food compartment or the bottom of the freezer in a side-by-side model. In a side-by-side with an icemaker, the water appears to be coming from the icemaker. Check the drain and clear it if there is a clog.

Ice Maker ValveIn Frigidaire models with an icemaker, a valve regulates the amount of water in the icemaker. If this valve malfunctions, a leak can result. The valve directs the water into cube molds. When obstructed by mineral deposits, the water sprays out of the molds. The water drips down and pools at the bottom of the freezer and onto the floor outside of the unit. Cleaning out the screen located at the end of the valve solves this problem.

Diane - Sorry I don't have a Frigidare but check out this site - I have heard of this but your error code could actually be 5b which is the best that they can do to show a Sabbath Day setting that the frig is designed with

We had the same issue. My husband unscrewed the filter cover (1 screw on the left side of the filter under the light flap). Then he pushed the old filter in & lifted it up and it came right out.

Google is your friend. Use it. Find the parts manual and discern how to access the handle mounting.

There should be a compression fitting that seals the water tube to the fridge. The fitting looks like a brass or plastic nut that the tubing sticks into. Shut off water supply to the fridge and carefully remove the fitting nut...there should be cone shaped compression ring inside the fitting nut. Slide the nut over the tube, then the compression ring over the tube. If the compression ring is tapered towards one end, then put the narrow end towards the end of the tube. Now stick the tube up to the fitting on the fridge where the nut screws on to the fridge. Hold the tubing firmly against the fitting and slide the compression ring and nut up to the fitting and screw the nut back on (compression ring should be inside the nut). You must hold the tubing firmly against the fitting until you get the nut tightened back down good with a wrench. This should take care of it.

If you find that the tip of your tube end is damaged, then you may have to cut off the tip of the tube to get it to seal and hold. If you find that the compression ring is damaged (won't slide over the tubing) or missing, then you can go to Lowe's or Home Depot and get a new nut and compression ring...they are cheap. You can also get new tubing there if you need it.

Hi there, I am not sure what your asking. There are NO user serviceable parts inside the unit- and it sound like your temperature sensor failed or another part related to the sensor or thermostat- also the temperature controller could be damaged- is it out of control in the freezer and fridge? There is not much you can do beside call for help if you have already reset it. good luck

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FFHS2611LWF, is flashing an "H1" code. This is actually stating "HI", as in either the refrigerator or freezer, temperatures are Hi and not at a safe level. First, press any button to stop the alarm and clear the HI temperature. If you are still receiving the alarm, I suggest checking the freezer, to make sure that everything is still frozen, and nothing is defrosting as, well as checking the refrigerator temperatures. If things are defrosting or the temperature is Hi in your refrigerator, I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. When power is restored, Give your freezer 24 hours to stabilize at the default temperatures of 0 degrees for the freezer and 37 degrees for the refrigerator. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your refrigerator status has changed successfully.

-Best Regards-
