Open Question

Frigidaire FRS26ZNH Freezer working great...but Fridge side won't stay cold enough...any suggestions...cleaned underneath but not sure if I got to the area where the condensor is...any other suggestions on what might be wrong... Turned temp on Fridge side all the way down to allow it to thaw out in case there was something freezing between the freezer and the fridge...just not sure what else it could be...has gotten worse and worse over the last 2-3 weeks...dont think its the defrost...and fan still runs at a normal interval.. Thanks..Loren

    Many of these have a fan that blows the cold air from the freezer side to the refrigiator side. Have you checked to se if the fan is blowing? 
    Open the door when it is running , hold the light button in and see if you have air flow.

If the frost build up is on the back panel of the freezer then it has a defrost problem which causes a no cool situation. Let me know more about this frost buildup and what you have done.

SOURCE: Frigidaire Model number frs26znh defrost not working?

The defrost systems is:
218169802 HEATER-DEFROST
5303917954 THERMOSTAT-DEFROST
5303917954 TIMER-DEFROST

Start with the timer. It is just under the front kick plate. there is a knob you can turn it slowly.until it clicks off the compressor. then open the freezer and listen . You should hear the heater come on .. it will sizzle when it comes on ...

You will have to remove the back panel of the freezer to check the heater for and thermostat for continuity. Heater are the lease likely part to go bad... I always change thermostat and timers together.

let me know if this helps or we can chat if you need more help.

Why is my frt18s6awx not getting cold enough in freezer & fridge?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire freezer, model# FRT18S6AWX, is not getting cold enough in either the freezer or refrigerator. I suggest changing the settings to a colder setting and give it 24 hours to stabilize at the set temperatures. Also, I recommend cleaning the toe grille and condenser coils. You can do this by taking the toe grille off and cleaning it with soap and water and rinsing it thoroughly with water. While the toe grille is off, get your vacuum with extension, and vacuum underneath your 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. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Fridge not keeping cold..


Check the coils underneath the fridge. Carefully vacuum and brush the coils clean. Usually there is a condenser fan near the compressor and condenser and a evaporator fan in the freezer. Make sure they both are turning.

Freezer not cold enough


Begin by turning the freezer temperature setting dial to a lower setting. Then wait a few hours to see if your problem is fixed. If that does not correct the problem you probably need to have the coolant system recharged. That requires special equipment so you will have to call in a repair person.
