Fridge problems - frigidaire

I purchased a frigidaire side by side a month ago and have noticed even though I keep the freezer at (-3 F) the items in the freezer are soft to the touch. Now everything is thawing. The freezer is at 36F and the fridge is at 48F. I try to change the temp to a lower temp but it will not cool. The unit is only a month old... any tips? Thanks

    I have a Frigidaire fridge freezer model FRE-196AS which I purchased 15 months ago and has run out of warranty.The freezer compartment is alright but in the fridge compartment ice builds up around the drainage filter which is located at the back of the fridge compartment and above the salad tray. I have even tried leaving the fridge below the recomennded fridge temperature but it dose not seem to be working.

    My Frigidaire refrigerator does not cool. The items in the freezer thawed out and the refrigerator side does not cool. The fan inside works, but I have shut the controls to zero. It is located in my garage so it may just be dirty coils, but thought I would ask. Thank you.

Sort of sounds like the adaptive defrost board is bad and you are not going into a defrost cycle. Do you have ice build up on the lower interior freezer section? Are the vent slots full of frost/ice? Ideally, pull the freezer shelfs out and take the little aluminum panel off the interior back to look at the coils. Are they basically a block of ice and frost? The problem happens when the unit doesn't go into defrost cycle and the coils freeze up. That blocks the air flow in the freezer so you get frozen food at the bottom but soft stuff at the top. And the frige just can't get enough cool/cold air from the freezer section to cool anymore. Power surges or blackouts, etc. can just destroy the defrost circuit board. Without good air flow the unit is not going to cool properly.

I have the same defrost problem and detrermined the control board to be bad. After installing the new board, the display keeps flashing zeros and won't allow a setpoint change. Is there a special procedure for installing this board? My unit is an Amana afd2535deq.

Our freezer just apparently stopped freezing, but the refrigerator still works. It's a Frigidaire Gallery just purchased a few months ago. Suggestions?


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.All the cooling comes from the freezer side. So if the fresh food side is working then the freezer is only producing enough to allow the temps to be around 38 degrees. Do you notice any frost on the freezer back wall? Its possible its a defrost issue.Can you hear the fan Running in the freezer when the compressor is on? If these all seem fine then I would say you have a sealed system issue. Either a leak or bad compressor. Since its only a few months old call for factory service it should have a one year warranty on parts and labor.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

I believe you freezer has sprung a Freon leak. You described it and if it changes levels is a way of measuring what Freon you have remaining. Sometimes they can be repaired it depends on how they were built. Hope you did not loose much food, Sea Breeze

I have a FRS26ZSHB FRIGIDAIRE. I replace the ice maker and the valve and it still does not make ice.


do you have water at the dispenser if so when you replaced the icemaker did you replace the harness that clip that usually come with the new item. If not the freezer may not be cold enough for the imkr to freeze properly are the item you put in the freezer soft or take a long time to freeze may have a freon issue

Freezer seems as if it is not cold enough


Your sensor is packed in ice and giving false reading (always frozen)

You NEED to defrost. Will take 2hr

Turn off or Pull plug on freezer
Take everything out and put in cooler, brown bags, large bin or boxes to stay cold
Defrost by setting large pail of boiling water in each side bottom of freezer and closing door(s) for 1/2hr
Open freezer, empty pails in sink and use pails to hold large chunks of ice from freezer that will come out easily
Toss out ice chunks
Check sensor to be sure it is no longer packed in ice
Wipe down interior dry
close doors
plug in
wait 1/2hr
reload with stuff you want to keep
Done!
