Question about Frigidaire FRS3R5EMB Side by Side Refrigerator

New Frigidaire side by side running constantly and still warm

Was working fine until Friday when the temp in the freezer stopped being cold enough to keep ice cream hard (it melted). The vegetable in the freezer are thawed and going soggy. The meats are defrosted. The ice is shrinking but still there. The ice maker is not making ice anymore even though it is set to ON. In the fridge; milk went bad. The Unit is 3 months old and there is no clicking sound - it just runs constantly. Frost/ice built up on the inside of the freezer - we cleaned it out. The unit is set to 6 Freezer and 6 Refridgerator. It was set to 2/2 since we moved here and it worked fine. HELP!!!

If the frost build up is on the back panel of the freezer then it has a defrost problem which causes a no cool situation. Let me know more about this frost buildup and what you have done.

Freezer fan stays on constantly. temps ok in both sides. will this cost much more electricity and should i really worry about it.

If the freezer fan is running constantly, and things aren't too cold in either section, it means the frig thinks its not cold enough to shut off, so it runs trying to get to the proper temp. you have control set at. Check for any frost buildup on freezers back panel inside freezer. If there is you have a defrost problem.

Fridge warm, freezer cold. repair guy said its fine if milk is not spoiling. but set at 6 coldest temp is around 40

Can you feel air movement from the freezer to the refrigerator side through the cooling tubes when the evaporator fan is operating?

If not you might have some ice build up in the cooling tube that is not allowing the refregerator to get cold enough. Try a hair dryer to clean it.

Frigidaire refrigerator with a broken freezer

He is correct. The temp in the refrig controls how often and for how long the refrig runs. Lets say the temp in your garage is 34 degrees, and you have your refrig set to 36 degrees: The refrig will never run, the fresh foods section will cool to 34, and the freezer will warm to 34. Even if the temp is 45 in the garage and you set the fresh foods to be 33, the refrig will not need to run long enough and often enough to keep the freezer temp cold enough. You will most likely need to have the ambient room temp at least 55 degrees to get satisfactory refrigerator performance. Insulating the refrig will not help. (by the way, outdoor beverage vending machines use an internal heater in cold weather to prevent liquid beverages inside from freezing,..... so using that info, you could put a low wattage heater in your refrig to make your refrig run enough to make the freezer section work. The %&#* with that, just move it into the house!)

I have a refrigerator that is 10 years old it is a tpx24pbe bb model number and the refrigerator side is staying at 50 degrees what is the problem?

On my GE side by side (model GSS20IEMDWW), a warm fresh food side, as well as iced-over evaporator coils in the freezer, was caused by the temp sensor in the fresh food side sending faulty data to the computer.

The temp in the fresh food side would climb because air could no longer pass over the iced-up coils in the freezer side.

For me, the faulty fresh food side sensor made the computer always thing the fresh food side was too warm, making it constantly run the compressor (thus icing up the coils).

If you do not have a coil icing problem in the freezer, then your fresh food side temp sensor may be telling the computer that the fresh food side is already cold enough.

Freezer cold not frozen, fridge cool but not cold enough.

HI, simply replacing the thermostat and air diffuser assembly will fix this cold control issue you are experiencing.
