FRS26R4CB0-Freezer not freezing and Fridge not getting Cool


Hi Candi,

I don't know this model but most friges are the same,
Check on the bottom back, there should be a radiator with a small fan
installed.

If the fan is not working this maybe your problem,
It is not colling the gas.


You also may have a gas leak or the gas compressor is not working
or starting to work because of a faulty capcacitor.

Most of the components are within the fridge unlike the older models and at the bottom of the fridge. It is possible that the fault is related to a thermostat or a auto defrost timer issue.
Since the fridge is not defrosting there is heavy frost that is preventing the fan to blow cold air and cool efficiently .
You will need to check the thermostat, auto defrost timer ,heater to confirm the fault.
Finally the poor pumping of compressor or low gas pressure can also reduce cooling.
check the compressor motor speed, check the capacitor.

4 yr old Top Mount Frigidaire freezer is not freezing


Even after you had unplugged and started if the fridge is not cooling well then the compressor is not having the right pressure for the heat exchange. The possible problem can be fault in the compressor or lack of gas in the system. check if the compressor motor speed is fine and pumping well, need to use a current test witth a clamp tester. If not check on the contacter relay, the capapcitor. If ok the gas pressure must be checked or refilled. I hope you can follow this out and try. Good day,

Frigidaire 16.5cu top mount not cooling fridge. freezer is froze


The baffle that opens to allow cooling into the refrigerator may be blocked, broken or mis wired. These units work by just cooling the freezer and then blowing some cold air into the refrigerator whenever the fridge thermostat calls for it. The fridge's thermostat is trying to cool the refrigerator but something is preventing the cool air from getting to the refrigeration part, that's why it's freezing up the freezer
