SOURCE: cold freezer/warm refrigerator

Same problem with Frigidaire Gallery model#GLRT182SAW5 (dated 2002 on back of case)

Vents were blocked with ice. Vents (from top compartment to lower) located behind light. You can check by poking a chopstick up the (2) holes; be careful not to hit fan blades.

Solution:

- took freezer coil cover off in back; checked that defrost heater element was working (marked and rotated the timer in the hole next to light); checked that fan working. Found ice in the vents and defrost drip area. Got it out with hair dryer.

- cleaned compressor coils in back (check fan is rotating; also tweaked some of the compressor tubing bends to make them more smooth - read somewhere about a manufacturing defect ...); blew out drip tube from defroster while down there.

- Set the freezer control to WARM and the refrig control to COLD (THIS SHOULD IMPROVE AIR FLOW FROM TOP TO BOTTOM).

- Put thermometers in top and bottom. Checked that refrigerator cycles (not running continuously). Checked that cold air is coming down from (2) vents behind light.

OK: so far, so good. Lower compartment is 40 or under. Top is under 18.

CONCLUSION: Suspect marginal design. Had problems with another similar model where defroster ice doesn't drain correctly, pools and refreezes. Leading to blocked vents as well as blocked defroster drain and similar problem including dripping water from top to bottom and warm bottom.

MAYBE KEEPING THE FREEZER CONTROL AT WARM GETS AROUND THE PROBLEM?? ANYWAY, ITS WORKING FOR ME FOR NOW !!

SOURCE: FREEZER IS TO COLD, REFRIGERATOR TO WARM

if you can; find the vent(s) between the top and, bottom boxes (where the evaporator fan is located: closing these vents makes the freezer colder and, the refrigerator warmer, opening these vents the reverse is true.

Where is deforst timer frigidarie model FUS2613LEO


When I run across a problem w/my fridge, I look up the model on this website.(see below) I can then see full diagrams for all the systems of my fridge. I can see where they are and then look them up on the internet. Check out this link, it is for your fridge, I don't see a part referred to as the defrost timer.
When my defrost timer went out, I would hear a clicking/grinding sound from under the front of the fridge. (It sounded like one of those old fashioned timers for your lights when you go on vacation). My fridge would not cool because it was stuck on the off position. This timer just shuts the cooling function off so the defrost heater can warm up the freezer coils just enough to melt any accumulated ice/frost. It does this on a cycle of say, 20 min on cool, 10 min on defrost. My fridge was actually getting warmer inside the freezer, couldn't figure that out...
It turned out my timer was behind the front lower grill(which pops off) and mounted with 2 sheet metal screws right up on the right side of the frame. when I took mine out to check it, it rattled like there was something loose in there(not supposed to sound like that). It just unplugs. Here is a diagram of your fridge, call the parts place to ask where yours is located. I replaced mine and the fridge is up and running again.

Good Afternoon Mat, thank you for your post! Based on the symptoms you are describing, it sounds like the issue could possibly be related to a faulty electronic control or thermostat. I would suggest checking for heavy frost build up on the evaporator panel, which would indicate that the unit is not defrosting properly. At this point, please reach out to an expert technician to ensure the appropriate replacement part is ordered and is installed correctly to prevent future issues. I hope this information helps to some degree - thanks for your question, and please do not hesitate to reconnect.

Fridge not staying cool


Hi,

Thank you for contacting fixya.com.

Check the coils on the rear of the refrigerator and make sure they are clean and dust free. Also check the back wall or floor of the freezer section for frost. Check the evaporator fan to see if it is running. Check the condenser coils under the unit for blockage from dust. Check the condenser fan under the unit to see if it is running. If you have frost in the freezer there is a problem with the defrost system and the freezer will start to warm eventually as well as the fresh food section. If that is the problem you can check the defrost terminator, defrost heater/s, and the defrost timer or adaptive defrost control If used on your unit or the main control board if so equipped. Also check the freezer to ensure it isn't over loaded with food stuff, reason being air must flow freely threw out the entire refrigerator in order for the thermostat to work correctly.Defrost the freezer by disconnecting the power to the refrigerator and letting it sit for at least 24 hours with both the doors open to allow the frost to melt completely but it will build up again in 1-2 weeks and start the warming up again.

Frigidaire freezer cold, refrig in 50's.


Because the model FRT21P5A has a manual adjusting vent I believe your problem is either the defrost heater and defrost thermostat and or the cold control (thermostst) is not working correctly. When temperatures rise in the refrigerator side first that is a sign that the air flow from the freezer is restricted. You will need to unplug the refrigerator and remove the rear panel in back of freezer to confirm. If Iced over use a hair dryer to defrost and disconnect one wire on the defrost heater. Check the defrost heater with an ohm meter. You should get a reading. If defective and no reading you need to replace the defrost heater and defrost thermostat. Let me know what you find, Thanks Sea Breeze

Fridge not staying cool, freezer still freezing


The defrost thermostat on the defrost heater is probably bad, it's a good place too start.

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
