Question about Refrigerators
I have a fridgidare and the freezer is freezing but the fridge is not getting cold at all. it has no frost in the freezer as it has been sitting for about a year on my back porch its only about 2yrs old. when i plug it in i can hear it running very quiet though? but when i turn the dial in the fridge part up past 2 i can hear it kick off? i turn it back down to 0 then up again and it kicks on and then off again? is there anything i can do myself without having to call an expensive repair guy as i cannot afford that right now... thank god its 0' degrees outside or we would have no food at all right now... please help?
Fridgidaire has had issues with the fans. The freezer is what actually cools the fridge but needs the fan to push the cold air down to the fridge. These fans habve been known to just die but before replacing check to see that there is no ice build up in fan housing. Good luck the these fans are not cheap.

Just had the same problem with my side-by-side.
In my case, the solution was to empty the freezer side, to access a back panel INSIDE the freezer covering the fan and cooling coils. Two screws held the back panel cover on, and when I removed the panel cover I found the cooling coils to be totally iced up, preventing the flow of cold air into the fridge side. I left the freezer open for a few hours until all the ice was melted, before replacing the inside panel. (I used a blow dryer to help speed up the ice melting).
Everything's working fine now for me - good luck with yours!

If the compresor is trying to start and it won't you 'll heard a click and the compresor will be very hot ,that means that the relay is bad or the compresor is stuck or burned and needs to be replaced, but first before replacing the compresor try with the relay (no more than $20).But if the lights and fan inside the fridge work and the compresor won't start and is not hot ,the problem is in the cold con trol (you can put a jumper wire between the two wires to the cold control and if the compresor starts thats your problem) after all this if still the compresor won't start could be that the timer is stock in the defrost position.
