FRT125GW warm fridge problem

Hi, I just noticed my FRT125GW has a problem with a warm fridge. The freezer is working fine. I tried to check the problem, I found the fan at the back of the freezer is not working at all, not matter the compressor is working or not, so I think the motor of the fan was failed. However I searched online a while, I noticed that there also might be the problems of a thermostat or a time, now I don't know how can I identify where is the problem exactly, and if I need to change the part, where can I buy them? How much approximately are they? Thanks!

Hello jumptrout51 - Generally speaking, if the compressor is on then the freezer fan should be on as well. Note that it does not indicate a failed fan motor. The fan motor receives power from the temperature thermostat. Therefore, at this point, I would personally recommend connecting with an experienced technician to determine the underlying cause.

SOURCE: we have a Frigidaire model

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if FREEZER CONTROL is turned WARMER WHICH MAKES THE REF COLDER AND VICE-VERSA. SEE?
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
But is probably a common defrost problem The ice build up
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
Make sure back cover is on the fridge. Some take them off and throw them away.
make one out of cardboard if its gone, using the holes of the old one.

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

SOURCE: Burnt smell inside freezer.

Generally speaking it is the refrigerator control that controls the compressor operation. Refrigerator is cooled by air from the freezer. When the refrigerator gets down to its designed temperature it shuts off the compressor. The freezer control determines how much air is allowed to flow into the refrigerator section and there-by controls the freezer temperature.

Ye, try to first replace the Relay, if that does not help then go to the run capacitor. Those are going to be your only 2 problems that you will have as long as the compressor is still doing its job by atleast running

SOURCE: compressor not coming on,temp is warm in freezer/fridge

You have a defective start relay on the compressor. That is your clicking sound. The overload relay is disengaging when you hear the click.
Replace the compressor start relay.

SOURCE: Frigidaire plht189sska top freezer fridge problem.

If the defrost heating element, defrost timer or evaporater fan weren't working, you'd develop a block of ice on the evaporator. Is the compressor running? If it is, it might have bad valves from the frost buildup scenario. Liquid refrigerant could have gotten to the suction valves. The sealed system should have a five year warranty. Might be time to call a pro
