Question about Frigidaire FRS26H5AS Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Stinky Fridge We built a new home last summer and moved in in November. We bought a brand new Frigidaire Side by side, model #frs6l9efss2. After about 2 1/2 months it developed a foul odour that was coming out from underneath. I pulled it out and inspected for dead mouse and found nothing. We called a serviceman out and he could find nothing. After another week or two, Lowes gave us another fridge, same make and model. It worked great for about the same time as the other one. Now, we are again experiencing the same smell. Any ideas?

Recently got 2nd hand Amana side by side model XRSS687BB. Compressor stops when closing fridge door. Freezer working as long as fridge door remains open. Fridge damper closed and won't open though it

I have went through something like this before, the serviceman told me it was in fact a compressor issue. Do you hear some kind of buzzing noise? Is it extremely hot? Then it's a compressor issue. They are pretty expensive to have replaced, would recommend to purchase a different brand. I had the same problems as Frigidaire. I had the compressor replaced twice during a time period of 2 years. It went out a third time and it was out of warranty and they told me that the compressor didn't receive any kind of warranty gain for itself and the company shortened the warranty of the compressor because of the issues they had with them. Since they were aftermarket ones, didn't apply to the original warranty. If you continue to have issues with this brand, please research the brand integrity online before you make another bad investment. I paid more for the new brand but it lasted longer than 9 months. The next fridge that I bought was older and used but lasted 5 years, so I stuck to that brand and it paid dividends stop far.

Stinky drip pan

Try vacuuming and cleaning the coils on the bottom of the fridge. The water is supposed to evaporate by the heat/air movement and if that is being slowed by dust and junk clogging the won't evaporate the water.

Problem with Maytag is they were bought out by Whirlpool who say those are not are problems.
Go figure. Anyhow call for service you should be covered with warranty on new compressor.

Hooked up waterline to side by side frigiedaire,

Your inlet tube that goes to the icemaker may be frozen. To Check: Shut off water supply to Fridge, disconnect the water line that goes to the icemaker at top back. Use a flexible item to insert in the water line connection. I used a zip tie. If the flexible item won't all the through to the ice maker, the line is frozen. Thaw out the tube from inside the freezer with a hair dryer. Re-connect everything, you now have ice . . . Solution #2: You may have to replace your "Water Inlet Valve" located at bottom right rear of Fridge. Easy to do, just follow the color codes, be sure and shut off the water.
