Question about Frigidaire FRT15G4B Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Frigidaire Model # FRT15G5AWO Top Freezer Refrigerator

Refrigerator or Freezer does not get cold. I replaced the cold control thermo couple after noticing that when the contacts were shorted everything seemed to be running. Tried to adjust the spring screw in the control itself but infortunately this just shorted the control to be always on and everything including the refrigerator ran constantly, freezing everything. The new control seemed to work at first but after the first cycle, everything stopped and did not turn on again. Could this be a defrost timer issue? If so, how can I check instead of buying more parts I don't need?

    The solution was a good suggestion but unfortunately when I tweeked the defrost timer nothing happened. I thought I would mention that the refrigerator is in a cold garage. Could this effect the cycle if the condenser is in a cold environment?

    Thanks for the specification, I didn't have that since I bought the unit second hand. However, eventhough it wouldn't operate proper temp, wouldn't the unit still cycle? I can still make the compressor and fans come on with shorting the contacts from the thermocouple control. Any other ideas?

How to check everything
http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php
The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.


If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Freezer wrk OK but temperature in the bottom fridge not cold


If you have a frost build up on the interior back wall of the freezer, you have a defrost issue. This would include a bad defrost control, bad heater or terminator.
If there is not a frost build up then you may have a bad evaporator fan motor.
