Question about Frigidaire FRT21P5A Top Freezer Refrigerator
Thanks for the help! The fridge was in defrost. He switched it back and the fans came on. However there seems to still be a problem. The fridge and freezer still are not getting as cold as they should be. It has been just about 42 hours since we switched it out of defrost. The freezer's temp is ranging between 20-28 degrees. The fridge is ranging from 40-48 degrees. It isn't getting any colder then that. I have no idea what else could be the problem. We had taken the back panel off in the freezer and there was ice on the coils. I had read here to take a blow dryer to it and get the ice off. Which we did, but that apparently wasn't the problem. Any ideas? If not, that is ok. You have been a great help anyways! :)
Welshons, Take a look at the picture Im posting. Did your evaporator look like it? If so your system may be restricted. This is a pretty common problem in Frigidaire top mounts. The good news is that it would be covered under warranty if it is not over 5 years old. As long as your condensor fan is running and the condensor is clean, evaporator not frosted up and evap fan running. I would think that you have a weak compressor or a restriction.

If the evaporator fan is not running. The fan itself could be faulty or the door operated light/fan switch could be faulty.
If the evaporator fan is running. The fridge is not defrosting and ice has built up on the evaporator and the air is not circulating properly into the fridge compartment. The fan circulates cold air into the fridge and back through the fridge control which is normally just an adjustable flap which allows more or less cold into the fridge depending on the setting. If the fridge is not defrosting, the defrost timer could be faulty or heater element could be blown.
