Question about Frigidaire FRS26R4A Side by Side Refrigerator
The frigerator is freezing. The coils are basicly clean. The door shuts well. I turned the control down a little with no effect. I think the fan is running to much.
First, I think it’s important to know that the Ref side has no cooling coils, it’s basically a box and the cold air in the freezer is blown over by a fan through a channel into the Ref side. This channel has a door which regulates how much cold air goes through. You probably have two control knobs in the Ref side, one controls the temp with numbers 1-9, 9 being the coldest. This temp control tells the compressor how long to run. The other control is for that little door and it may have letters A-E, E being the coldest. If you set it on E (coldest) then this will close that little door and keep most the cold air in the freezer.
Now, why is too much cold air getting over to the Ref side?
1. The little door is open too much.
check your control setting. You should be able to feel air coming through the channel on the Ref side
2. The cold control is bad causing the compressor to run too much.
