Re: Frigidaire FRT18HB5DW2 fridge not cooling

Sounds like an air flow problem to the lower unit. Take the sheetmetal or plastic rear cover off the freezer back wall and make sure the coils are frosted up good and even but NOT a block of ice inches thick (air needs to circulate and a blocked coil won't let air move over it efficiently). Make sure the fan is running to move the air around. In the fridge area make sure the air dampers are letting the cold air from the freezer down to the fridge compartment. Depending on what you find will determine the next steps so let us know.

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

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.

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,

Fridge side not cooling. freezer works. 6 yr old side by side

There is a little fan that blows air from the freezer side to cool the fridge side. Pull the plug on the refridgerator for over night, long enough to give it time to defrost if there is any, then plug it back in and see ifthe fan is running. If not then it probably needs to be replaced. If it keeps frosting up and stopping the fan then the defrost timer is probably bad and will need to be replaced.

Does not cool

coils iced up. keep fridge unplugged and open for a while to defrost. dry up inside and possible puddle underneath. plug in, turn on, and leave empty for a day so it'll reach it's temp, then fill it up.

Fridge problems - frigidaire

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.
