Question about Frigidaire FRT15G4B Top Freezer Refrigerator
Hi. I have a frigidaire Model # FRT17G4BW1. The freezer part is 12 deg.F and the frig. part gets to 40 deg.F It should get much colder than this. It use to get colder in frige so I started checking the Temp. I found out that the Defrost Thermostat was not working so I chaned it, now that works fine also the timer works fine.I also removed the freezer control that regulates the air flow to the frig. (witch the fan works good) so I will get the most amount of air flow to the frige.I use to be able to keep the frig. control at 4.5 and it was keeping milk and water at a very cold temp. But now I have it set on 6 all the way and it is not near as cold. Do you think the compresor is just not putting out as it should? Thank You.....
Sounds like defrost timer is not putting the refrigerator in defrost every 8 hours. You freezer should be below -5 degrees. Also the condenser beneath the refrigerator possibly needs cleaning. First slowly turn the defrost timer clockwise until freezer goes in defrost. You should hear the sound of crackling noise in freezer after about one minute into defrost. If timer does not come out of defrost or does not turn itself then replace it. Let me know what you find, Thanks Sea Breeze
