The 'baffle' is controled by a small electri motor,This is a renewable part.If you want to manually open it,you should be able to gently move with you hand,after removing the guard. Hope this helps!!

Hello,

When you cleaned the coil underneath did ya notice that their was air being blown out their by a fan,having clened the coil was a good start but if the fan by the compressor isn't running that divider between the ref/freezer will be hotter than normal( its normally warm and thats ok),so check that the condenser fan is running and that it seems to running at a good speed.

Hi, I'm Mark.
Check the position of the two controls at the top of the unit inside the fresh food compartment. SET BOTH controls to the 12 o'clock position. Wait about a hour, then check temperatures. Then wait another hour and check temperatures again. Record the values on a piece of paper. When you do check fridge temperatures, do so quickly as the compartments become warm just a few seconds after the doors are opened. Please let me know what happens to the fresh food readings.
Thanks, Best Regards,
Mark

Frigidaire refrigerator with a broken freezer


He is correct. The temp in the refrig controls how often and for how long the refrig runs. Lets say the temp in your garage is 34 degrees, and you have your refrig set to 36 degrees: The refrig will never run, the fresh foods section will cool to 34, and the freezer will warm to 34. Even if the temp is 45 in the garage and you set the fresh foods to be 33, the refrig will not need to run long enough and often enough to keep the freezer temp cold enough. You will most likely need to have the ambient room temp at least 55 degrees to get satisfactory refrigerator performance. Insulating the refrig will not help. (by the way, outdoor beverage vending machines use an internal heater in cold weather to prevent liquid beverages inside from freezing,..... so using that info, you could put a low wattage heater in your refrig to make your refrig run enough to make the freezer section work. The %&#* with that, just move it into the house!)

Mr.


When the heater comes on for defrost behind the rear freezer panel , it gets red hot . The defrost thermostat ( bimetal ) , cuts the heater off , when it reaches 140 degrees for new (2000 - 2009 ) and 55 degrees for older refrigs . When this temp is reached at the top of the coils , the lower portion will be hotter due to being closer to the heater . The frozen food in the freezer , is what keeps the temp down in front of the rear freezer panel . No food in freezer , the hotter the freezer section will be .

Warm refrigerator compartment


There is a fan that blows the cold air down from the freezer to the fridge compartment. It is usually called a freezer fan. Most of them are behind the plastic lining in the freezer. I just noticed that your fridge is a side by side. I have never wored on a side by side but I imagine there is fan in them as well.
