Question about Frigidaire FRS26H5AS Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Fridge is freezing food on upper shelves

The fridge side of my side-by-side is freezing jugs of water and lemonade on the top shelf. The setting was on "factory recommended", so I moved to less cool. I also adjusted the Meet Keeper settting to "warmer". It takes about 24 hours, but the fridge is still freezing these items on the top shelf. The fridge/freezer was purchased in 2003.
Thanks...I hope!

Either damper assembly between fridge and freezer is not working correctly or the thermostat is bad

SOURCE: Fridge area freezing food; water dispensor line freezing

sometimes when the cooler weather comes in you may need to chnge temp setings to a warmer setting to prevent some items from freezing ie: leafy vegetables, water bottles, eggs, etc etc.

now if you are having total freeze up of everything in the ref section then you could have bad temp control or damper assy.

SOURCE: Freezer Shelves are too small for freezer and keep falling when I put food on them...

So I did drill some little holes in the side rails of the shelves and screw on some little nylon spacers; it works quite nicely, doesn't look too bad, and wasn't that much of a pain to do. I still think it's rediculous that I had to do it, and that the morons at Maytag couldn't even understand what my problem was. I don't think we deserve to be the leaders of the free world anymore.

SOURCE: Frigidaire side by side - fridge side temp too low

It sounds as though your thermostat is not cycling your compressor off causing it to run until the point of freezing. If you sit and listen, you will hear it hum. If it never stops humming, 9 times out of 10, the power outage shorted your thermostat.

SOURCE: Bosch Side by Side, top shelves dont freeze food, bottom does

majority of refrigerators today are equipped with an automatic icemaker. The water valve supplying the icemaker is a key component of the icemaking system, and it should be the first thing you check if the icemaker's performance is erratic or if the icemaker stops working. When the icemaker calls for ice, its switch closes an electrical circuit and energizes the solenoid-operated water valve. This allows water to flow through the valve and into the ice cube tray. The water is frozen into cubes, and the cubes are dumped into the ice bin. As time passes, strange things may happen to the refrigerator's icemaking capability. The cubes may be small or there may be a solid chunk of ice instead of individual cubes. It's also possible that the icemaker will stop working. These are all signs of a malfunctioning water valve. The valve is equipped with a screen on its inlet to remove minerals and sediments in the water supply. Over time, minerals and sediment build up on the screen and restrict flow through the valve, or even block it completely. Minerals that make it through the screen can cause the valve to stick in the open position, overfilling the ice cube tray in the process. This is a common problem in areas with hard water, but it can happen just about anywhere. Another malfunction that will cause the icemaker to stop working is a break in the solenoid coil winding. This is known as an open coil. The coil winding generates a magnetic field as current passes through it, and this magnetic field opens the plunger valve that controls water flow. A break in the coil winding stops current flow and this prevents the valve from operating. Test And Inspect The icemaker's valve is easy to inspect and test. First, gently pull the refrigerator away from the wall, and unplug it. Turn off the water supply to the icemaker by closing the shut-off valve in the copper waterline leading to the valve (Fig. 1). Use a screwdriver or nutdriver to remove the rear lower access panel from the refrigerator's back. Next, remove the fill tubing from the water valve. Use a wrench to loosen the flare nut on the brass fitting on the inlet side of the valve (above). Place a container under the valve to catch the small amount of water that will spill from the valve and tubing. Now use a screwdriver or a nutdriver to remove the screw holding the valve's mounting bracket to the refrigerator cabinet (Fig. 2). Pull the valve out of the compartment and remove the tube on the valve's outlet. Then, remove the solenoid's electrical contacts (Fig. 3).

Fridge warm, freezer has frost on back panel & is defrosting, fans work, just changed defrost thermostat, no air is moving from freezer side to fridge side, drain pan under fridge is dry


this fan needs to run when the compressor runs,check fan blade for being jammed by ice if you have this much ice on back wall as ice will stall motor,if no fan there will be no cool air to refrige compartment also the defrost drain tray will fill with water then freeze over which in turn floods the freezer floor and refrige compartments cause it cannot drain to the pan in the bottom

Hotpoint fridge problem, warm fride, but freezer working good


Fridge along bottom shelves is much colder than the very top shelf which has milk etc., leading to spoilage. Fridge is at highest setting. In the upper left rear of the fridge compartment, is a cover for what I believe to be a circulatory fan. However, trying to remove this cover is difficult.
It seems that the clip nuts to which the two (2) small capscrews fasten are free wheeling and not allowing me easy access to the motor.

Please advise.

My model no. is HSS221FMD WW

My frdge compartment is freezing


I really need more information. Like exact model number of said refrigerator. Here are some good tips. There may be a vent that leads to the freezer, if so close it. Second question is place a thermoeter on the top shelf in a glass of water for 4 hours, what is the temp. Do the same thing on the shelf that is freexing. If the tempatrues are equal turn up the tempature again. If not the circulation in the compartment is blocked. Make sure the the back of the carptmen has a gap to let air circulate vertically. Modern refriderators use air circulation to help reduce energy costs from compressors overworking. 
Thanks PJ
