Not cooling or freezing


Hi Mick, this is AP.



I understand you are experiencing a no cool situation in your Frigidaire refrigerator. On your model, FRS26R4A, specifically the first thing to check it to make sure the refrigerator and freezer controls are not set to "0", turning the Freezer and Fresh Food Controls to "0" turns off the compressor and prevents your refrigerator from cooling, but does not disconnect the power to the light bulb and other electrical components. If you hear the noise coming from the freezer compartment it could be something blocking the evaporator fan which would cause warm temps in the fresh food and freezer section. If the noise is coming from behind the appliance it could be something in the condenser fan or the compressor may be locked up. I would definitely recommend contacting an authorized technician to repair your appliance if you find the temperature controls are not the cause of your high temperatures in the refrigerator. I hope this information helps.



Thanks,

My frig is not cold enough


Maybe the room you store it in is to hot as the fridge will only cool a certain amount of degree's below the ambient temperature, if it has a freezer compartment make sure it is regulary deforsted as the fridge temperature is linked to the freezer temperature.

Kenmore refrigerator 253.57192600 making clicking noise


It could be as simple as a bit of expansion and contraction of the wall panels or the damper which allows cooling to flow from the freezer to the fridge side.
