The Frigidaire FRT22IRSH has a conventional ice maker. The only thing which could cause the described symptoms is if the ice freezing cycle terminates prematurely. That could be caused by poor refrigeration (like if the temperature is not set cold enough), but could also be caused by a defect in the ice maker's timer and/or sensing. Start by checking the ...

The button is a climate control switch. The button should be used if the ambient temperature is below 16°C. Reference: electrolux-ui.com (model: ER8029B) (The climate control switch can also be used if you are freezing a lot of stuff at once. You should then activate it 12 hours in advance.)

The simplest, cheapest, and fastest test would be to swap the wire into the fridge breaker with another one of the same rating. (Turn off both breakers first.) This would test if the breaker has "de-rated" itself. That sometimes happens as they age. If the swapped arrangement doesn't trip, replace the (original) refrigerator breaker. The next easiest ...

Could be a voltage issue, but you'd notice it in other places as well if it was. Your ONLY recourse is to call the landlord and have them have someone check it. You CANNOT and should not do ANY electrical work in a place that you are renting.

I would check the seals on the fridge door. Perhaps they are damaged or are not closing fully. If it is an electric stove, it may be that it is of a type that you are not used to. Some electric stoves do take a longer time to reach full temperature. For example, halogen, inductive and resistive heating elements all have differing characteristics. You could ...

Freezers aren't really designed to freeze things, they're designed to keep things frozen. To change one pound of 32°F ice to 31°F ice, requires the removal of .5 BTUs. To change one pound of 32°F water, to 32°F ice, requires 144 BTUs. Therefore, it requires far less energy to keep an item frozen, than it does to freeze the item in the first ...

15-20 degrees isn't cold enough, believe it or not :) There needs to be a significant temperature difference to rapidly draw the heat out of the items you want to freeze. For example, current Whirlpool refrigerator/freezer units come preset to 0-degrees (F, not C) for the freezer and 37-degrees (F) for the fridge. According to this document, the freezer ...
