Question about Frigidaire FRS26ZSG
The freezer has a open vent at the bottom on the inside at the back.. i can see cooling coils thru the open vent.. after a while the cooling coils will freeze over and the frig compartment will not cool at all then... last year.. the unit did the same thing. and i found the switch under the left front side of the frig...and i adjusted the setting on it ....it took a few trys but it worked for over a year after i fooled with that switch a few times..Now i cant seem to hit the lucky spot with the switch at all..i suppose it has went out .. can you help me?
We have the same problem: We own a Fridgedare FRS26ZXH that's about 10 years old. We went to the following website: http://www.refrigerators.com/refrigeratortroubleshooting.aspx
and found a solution.
A refrigerator self-defrosts about four times a day. If a part of the self-defrosting system stops working, the refrigerator keeps cooling. This causes frost and ice to build up on the evaporator coils, which keeps air from the circulating fan, which in turn prevents the refrigerator from cooling properly. It sounds contradictory, but if there's ice building up in your freezer, your refrigerator probably isn't cold enough either. We could not see the coils in the back of the freezer compartment (should be shiny aluminum color). All we could see was ice build up over what might look like a vent.
We carefully blew warm air on these coils with a hair dryer until we could see the coils. Time will tell the cause of this problem if it happens again. It may be coincidence that the outside temp went into the teens and my 4 year old flipped off our house's heating system overnight, causing the issue.
If the problem is with the defrost system, it's either the defrost timer, defrost heater, or defrost thermostat.
