Question about Frigidaire FRS26R4C Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Bought a Thor Fridge Freezer just over 10 months ago.

There is no dial on the freezer itself but at the top over the door of the fridge there is the light and a dial that rolls around when you push it. I dont know how far I should move this to get the freezer to start to freeze.
Do I turn it to the right or do I turn it to the left. The freezer has three drawers and several times if the baskets are not pushed in fully the freezer defrosts and I have lost food on several occasions because of this. I am not sure what is the exact setting because the dial does not give any numbers or letters so that I can work it out.

Not particularly happy with the Freezer end of things. Think Thor could have made it a lot simpler if the dial was put on the Freezer itself so that one could see exactly what they are doing and which way the temp button should be moved.

Last night put a bowl of water in the freezer section and turned the dial all the way to the right, Bowl is frozen over this morning so I am getting a themometer today and will set it at what other freezer makers recommend and see how it works then. I will try the water trick again and see how well it works.

The top freezer cools like a fridge, the bottom fridge is warm


The fluxating temps bottom to top and top to bottom freezing are a result of the "air damper and baffle assy" not functioning properly. I would attempt fo make my case with LG that this started while the unit was under full warranty and persists today.

Refrigerator will not get cold, but freezer works


Make sure your fan is working ,its located behind the freezers back wall. If it is working the vent from the freezer down to the refrigerator may be blocked (usually with ice).With out a fan you have no circulation but your freezer may look likes its working,it may last 3 days.Also if you can move everything out unplug it turn it off w/ doors open untill all traces of ice are gone this will free up any clogged tubes. Good luck.

Freezer works great, as it should, but fridge is only keeping items room temp. I have the setting at the coldest setting: #7. What is wrong?


Here's what I did, I defrosted! I found out that the fridge temp is monitored and maintained by the freezer. Because we had a power outage one night, my freezer thawed while we all slept and then when power came back on, freezer re-froze but this cause an ice build up on the vent on the back wall of the freezer. Well, ice must have been in one (or more) vents, causing blocked air flow in my top half of the refrigerator. I turned the dial in the freezer to "off" which also shuts down power to the fridge half. I then unplugged the refrigerator, hauled all my food items into coolers, opened the freezer door and refrigerator doors and left them open for a little over six hours. I took advantage of this empty fridge and freezer and wiped everything down. After this time frame passed, I plugged the fridge back in, turned the freezer dial to my preferred freezer temp, and wah-lah! Within two hours I had a cold fridge and solid ice cubes in the freezer. I then put all my food items back into their appropriate compartments, and went to work. Bear in mind, a total 24-hour period is needed for the fridge to re-set itself, but still, after two hours the fridge was noticeably cold. Who knew, besides our parents' generation: DEFROST!

Fridge is warm, freezer works.


Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.

Warm refrigerator/freezer


very good chance it is the same problem or possibly a leak of refrigerant due to joint failing where compressor is joined to pipework

Freezer at 10 deg, fridge at 50


haier refrigerators have been known to have the cold control go bad. it only sense's the temp in the fresh food section so that would be why the freezer is still ok. The problem is the control is cutting out to fast and not letting the temp go lower. from what you said i would take that there is good air flow between the freezer and the fresh food compartment. so the only thing it could be is the cold control. I would replace it and you should be all set.
