Freezer not getting cold enough

Lately, I have noticed that my Frigidaire GLRT86TEKF freezer is not freezing anything. It does get cold in there, but you can't even freeze some ice. There is cold air coming out of the back, but I also noticed an ice build-up in the lower right of the freezer section.
Any suggestions are appreciated.

It would sound like you ether have a defrost problem . or a drain heater problem or posibly even a short refrigerant problem / if you can identify the location of the defrost timer located on the underside of the compartment divider unless im mistaken with this modle . you can manually put the fridge into a defrost. listen close to the freezer and see if you can hear ice water sizeling on a heater in about 5 or 10 minutes. if yes then you know the heater is working and you replace the timer. if no then alow the timer to come out of defrost on its own. if it does then the time is running ok and youll have to look for a nothe problem. the other two problems would have to be exposed by a pro. if it is a refrigerant shortage this is normally under 5 or 7 year woranty . chck you lables or woraty info on line. hope this was helpfull

Freezer is not freezing


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire freezer is not getting cold enough to freeze your food. I suggest cleaning the compressor, underneath your appliance, by using an attachment on your vacuum. I also suggest lowering the temperature and giving your freezer 4-24 hours to stabilize at that temperature. 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 dishwasher status has changed successfully. If further troubleshooting is needed, please leave me the model number of your freezer. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Refrigerator does not get cold


In your freezer section, there should be a "control" for the freezer temp. I say "control" because the knob is attached to a flap that only controls airflow the the lower section. If the knob is turned to coldest it will block almost all of the air from getting into your fresh food section.

Top mounted freezer on refrigerator not working


Move the refrigerator to a room that is at least 50 degrees F.

Temps on most refrigerators are regulated by the fresh foods temp. If your garage is let's say 35 degrees, the fresh foods temp will most likely never raise enough to turn the refrigerator on. With the refrigerator never running, the freezer compartment will warm to 35 degrees, resulting in everything melting. Even if garage is a bit warmer, say 45, the refrig will not run long enough for the freezer to maintain a low enough temperture. If the garage temp falls to below freezing, say 20 degrees, the food in the fresh foods compartment will freeze. (outdoor beverage dispensers have internal heaters to prevent product from freezing !) Please don't rate this if not a Fix-Ya for you, as anything else lowers my score.
