Question about Frigidaire Refrigerators
I have a 10 year old side by side Frigidaire refrigerator model number FRS26R2AQ5 that has a problem only on the frigerator side. The freezer works good. We had it set to the factory settings but about 1 week ago the fruit and fluids started to freeze. I put a thermostat inside and found that it was at 20 and running. I turned it all the way down and heard it turn off. I have been trying different settings but it is either too cold or too warm and will not stay at any temp for long. Do I need some kind of thermostat? Is it inside the control panel in the top of the fridge side? Thank you JIM
Look and see if the air damper called a=> 5304482075 Temperature Control Thermostat is opening and closing after selecting a different temperature. This along with the termostat are what controls the fresh food section temperatures. I am here should you have questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

Set the freezer temp control to MAX cold and see if it improves.
If not replace the off/on thermostat.(cold control)

The temperature control thermostat, alson known as the colds control thermostat has gone bad and basically isn't converting electrical/temperature signal properly and needs to be replaced

Testimonial: "thinks alot, after 24hrs it staying at 39f so its working now i don't know why but she all fixed the only thing i did was turn it off for a min and turn it back on. "
it is almost certainly a defrost problem. when fault has occured, remove freezer bzck panel and see if there is ice build-up. if so this confirms a defrost problem - possibly that the element is open circuit

SOURCE: refrigerator freezes food
sounds like might be a cold control issue, not cyclying on/off. if correct you dairy is good judge, so id assume that your ice cream is FROZEN SOLID. try turning down refrig temp control this will reduse run time(if working at all)

It sounds like the freezer side is losing its capacity......All cooling done on the refrigerator side is done by air flow of the fan in the freezer compartment by the evaporator coils(aluminum fins looks like a radiator)
You might want to pull the back panel of the freezer section and look at it.
Normally it is fully frosted when running(whitish snow covering on evaporator) If it is only partially frosted it has a freon leak or compressor problem. If it is engulfed in frost and there is no air flow possible through it your defrost system has failed.My guess is it is partially frosted and you have a freon leak.
Also check the fan by the compressor is running on the outside and the condensor coils on the outside on the bottom are clean.( fan runs when compressor runs)
