Question about Frigidaire FRS26H5AS Side by Side Refrigerator
Good Morning mclellan286 - There could be various reasons why your refrigerator is freezing. There could be a faulty defrost thermostat or the vent from the freezer has been blocked and is forcing air into the refrigeration section.
If I may suggest checking to make sure that items in the freezer are clear from the vents or walls in the freezer. If this is not an issue, it may be more of a technical issue and an authorized service provider would be able to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.
If you do not know a professional technician, manufacturer websites often have service provider locators' onsite to assist you in that regrd. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to reconnect!

SOURCE: refrigerator side is freezing.
The damper control which is the control for the refrigerator has gone bad not letting the damper door close to control the airflow into the fresh food section. the part number is 5303918283 at a price of about 245.00. To me this is rediculous but that is the manf suggested retail. It should be a crime to charge so much for this particular part. Soory on the cost but it is the problem.

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)

The refrigerator/freezer defrost system can be checked by
manually initiating a defrost cycle. There
are two methods of initiating the ADC Test Mode.
First Test Method:
1. Turn the thermostat off for 15 seconds.
2. Turn the thermostat on for 5 seconds.
3. Turn the thermostat off for 15 seconds.
4. Turn the thermostat on for 5 seconds.
5. Turn the thermostat off for 15 seconds.
6. Turn the thermostat on for 5 seconds.
7. Turn the thermostat off.
In 3 to 8 seconds the ADC should turn on the defrost heater (with the bimetal closed). NOTE: The test mode will terminate when the bimetal opens. If the refrigerator/freezer is already in defrost, Test Mode can be terminated by unplugging the refrigerator/freezer from the wall outlet and waiting 30 seconds before plugging it back in. The refrigerator/freezer should immediately go into cooling mode if the thermostat is closed.
If this first test procedure fails to make the ADC initiate a defrost cycle, try the following procedure to make the ADC begin the Test Mode.
Second Test Method:
1. Disconnect the refrigerator/freezer from the wall outlet for at least 30 seconds.
2. Turn the thermostat off.
3. Reconnect power to the refrigerator/freezer.
Within 3 to 8 seconds the ADC should turn on the defrost heater (with the bimetal close). If the unit fails to go into the defrost mode during this test, the problem may not be with the ADC. A defective bimetal may be the cause of the failure. The ADC will only go into a test mode if the bimetal
is closed. If the ADC senses an open bimetal it will return to the cooling mode within 3 to 8 seconds.
HELPFUL HINT: Upon entering the Test Mode, the relay mounted on the ADC board should turn off the compressor and turn on the defrost heater. Listen for the relay to click.
• If the relay clicks one time when entering the Test Mode, check for continuity in the defrost heater.
• If the relay clicks two times, check for an open bimetal.
