Question about Frigidaire FRS26R4A Side by Side Refrigerator

Open Question

I have a Frigidaire Model FRS26ZNH Side by Side. Refrigerator side not cooling (no air flow from top). Freezer side fine, however back panel and coils are freezing up. If I turn off the freezer side and remove back panel and use a fan to thaw out the coils in back of freezer, unit will run fine for a few days until it freezes up again. Fan motor was running constant, however when I went to unfreeze the coils again today, the fan motor was not running at all. Any suggestions!!

Freezer stayed cold but upper compartment wouldn't. Freeze started having problems with staying cold. I just paid $377 to get the two year old evaporate fan replaced. It is located inside the frig behind the panel in the freezer compartment. It took about 15 minutes. Seems this part is part of the evaporator system but not covered by anything other than the first one year warranty. Problem solved but what a ripoff from Kitchenaid.

SOURCE: Frigidaire Model number frs26znh defrost not working?

The defrost systems is:
218169802 HEATER-DEFROST
5303917954 THERMOSTAT-DEFROST
5303917954 TIMER-DEFROST

Start with the timer. It is just under the front kick plate. there is a knob you can turn it slowly.until it clicks off the compressor. then open the freezer and listen . You should hear the heater come on .. it will sizzle when it comes on ...

You will have to remove the back panel of the freezer to check the heater for and thermostat for continuity. Heater are the lease likely part to go bad... I always change thermostat and timers together.

let me know if this helps or we can chat if you need more help.

it is on the top of the inside of the refrigerator and if it is not you may have to take off the knob for the thermostat and turn the red knob that is sitting in the hole.

The freezer is fine steady at 0, but the refrigerator temperature keeps rising currently at 67 degrees.


Check the freezer make sure you do not have frost build up. Defrost problems choke out the air flow and if it happens the refrigerator will not cool.

Refrigerator not cooling FRS22WNC


the damper vent door between the freezer and refrigerator isn't opening to let cold air into the refrigerator compartment from the freezer side,its in the upper left corner in the refrigerator behind a grille,if its closed you wont feel cold air flowing in from the freezer sometimes you can shine a light in this area and look in the other compartment and if no light then the doors shut and this is why its not cooling the refrigerator

We have a Kitchenaid superba side by side. The freezer is working fine, but the refrigerator isn't cold. I have vacuumed the coils at the top of the model, but didn't solve the problem. I can...


The cooling normally comes from the freezer side, through cooling tubes. There should be a fan either blowing or sucking the air through these cooling tubes. So the first thing you should do is verify that the evaporator fan is turning and then see if you feel air flow in both compartments. If you have air flow in the freezer but not the refrigerator side, then the cooling tube must be blocked.

Most of the time the blockage is ice or frost, and you will need to open up the inner back panel of the freezer to get to the cooling tube. Look for an opening under the evaporator. Suggest a hair dryer to defrost the tube.

Freezer stopped making ice and now coils in bottom of freezer r freezing up..this is a side by side refrigerator


shut off motors .....let it completely defrost,,,restart the fridge and STOP PACKING IT SO FULL allowing air to flow . if air can't flow freely, the ice maker stops and the freezer frosts up ,...causing the refrigerator side to not cool as well as it should.

the freezer side only works within certain parameters.

HTH !

The sides of my freezer are very hot while the top, front and back are cool to the touch. The freezer still is freezing items fine.


In the newer freezers and refrigerators they are mounting the condenser coil in the side panels of the freezer or refrigerator eliminating the large usually black frame work of tubing that used to be mounted on the back. This saves room but causes the sides to be warm as the heat is now dissipated by the side panels. You should have about an inch of clearance on both sides to let air flow over the side panels to cool them. I have a newer side by side and it also is feels quite warm when you put your hand on the side.

Refrigerator side stops cooling


Drain stopped up.
Take out the bottom drawer in the freezer, look at the back wall and you should get a partial view of the bottom of the cooling coils. Directly below these coils is the drain area. You may need a light to see the drain hole. If this area is covered with ice then a hair dryer will help clear this so you can see the drain hole.
I have some O2 tubing that I put down the drain to clear any cloggs. Also, I seal the top of the drain hole around the O2 tubing with tape and use the air from my lungs to clear the drain tube. Pour a little water down this drain hole to make sure it’s clear.
