Frigidare French door refrigerator ice build up and damage to dry wall
Model: Frigidare FGHF2366PF2
Our 10 year old Frigidare stainless steel refrigerator was not cooling with fridge temperature rising to 55 F. There was some ice deposit inside on one of the vents.
I decided to pull the fridge out and there is a huge piece of ice stuck to the back wall and there is a lot of rust. It looks like its been there for a while. The ice build up eventually made contact with the back dry wall and completely corroded and ripped a hole in it.
Looks like we have to get a new fridge but was wondering why this happened so I can make sure it doesn't happen again. I'll also have to get my dry wall repaired and patched. Going to attach photos for the community. Thank you for your insights.
