Question about Frigidaire FRT18S6AW Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Refrigerator and freezer not cooling

Hi there,

I have a 2003 Frigidaire refrigerator, Model FRT18S6AW8, with a top freezer.

This morning it made a humming sound in the front top part of the refrigerator. The light is working. It sounded as though the fan was trying to run but could not. As someone suggested, I tapped against the control. The sound sopped all together, no fan running. It seems like the freezer is not cooling either, although I do not have any thawed food in there yet.

I do not hear any noises from the refrigerator at this point, neither inside nor outside.

If you can, please, let me know what the problem is and how I can quickly fix it. Someone suggested that the Cold Control may not be working and needs to be replace?

Thank you, and have a great day,

Andrea

If the light is working then it has power so it may have just went into defrost and it takes about 30 minutes to come back out / if it does not come by on within a hour then i also think you may have a bad temp control / larry

Frigidaire 16.5cu top mount not cooling fridge. freezer is froze


The baffle that opens to allow cooling into the refrigerator may be blocked, broken or mis wired. These units work by just cooling the freezer and then blowing some cold air into the refrigerator whenever the fridge thermostat calls for it. The fridge's thermostat is trying to cool the refrigerator but something is preventing the cool air from getting to the refrigeration part, that's why it's freezing up the freezer
