Frigidaire-Model FRS26ZPH Keeps running and food is not as cold as it should be. I pulled it away from the wall and vacuumed/cleaned all the crud from behind and underneath as best as I could. Thanks in advance.

Bob,

Check the freezer side and see if there is ICE BUILDUP BEHIND the rear panel. If there is you can remove the panel and with a hairdryer thaw out the freezer coils. That should make it run properly, BUT you have either a problem with the defrost unit OR the Temp Control Unit for the refer side. I don't know how to test either unit to see if they are working though.

FRS26KF6EMK FRIGIDAIRE SS SIDE BY SIDE,stopped cooling,why?


There are many reasons for these symptoms. Feel the compressor top, is it too hot to keep your hand there? Look into the back of the freezer and tell me what type of frost pattern is on the rear wall? If the compressor won't start it could be because of a defective
Run Capacitor 5304464438

Freon leaks or failed compressor can also cause the same symptoms

My refrigerator is about 7 years old and it doesnt seem like its staying cold. my food is not as cold as it should be and stuff in the freezer keeps thawing and refreezing and the ince is melting together


may not be the issue, since so many issues can cause these problems
but try pulling it out and cleaning the back wall and coils behind it

just think you might be running a lil hot from air flow issues

Whirlpool Refrigerator fresh food section cool but not cold (freezer ok).


The most likely problem is in the defrost system. Behind the freezer panel there is not only an evaporator fan, but also the evaporator itself, and a defrost heater, termination bi-metal, and drain pan (or trough). You will likely find ice build-up in the evap coil. This could be caused by the defrost timer, the heater, or the termination bi-metal.
Have a service tech look at the unit.

WARM REFRIGERATOR


Check the freezer side back wall, do you see Ice forming on that wall?

If so you have a defrost issue. Also check to make sure you fan in the freezer side is running. If not, than cold air from the freezer cannot make it to the fresh food side.

I am factory authorized for Frigidaire Appliances and am confident I can assist you in this repair.
