Frigidaire FRS26R4CB1 fridge temp too cold

In the last week, all the liquids have started freezing up in the fridge side. Temperature has always been set at default and the setting was unchanged when it first froze up. I have dropped the setting to the warmest setting and fridge is still averaging 18 degrees.  I disassembled the entire control box to check if damper had ice making it stick open or if it was inoperable. Everything looked normal and I can hear damper door opening and closing when running. It sounds like the temperature control box is not operating properly. How can I test that is the actually problem without replaing the part? Or is there another part that I should look at first? Freezer is still operating properly. Thanks for any insight you may have.

See if you have some paperwork on how to test, etc. located in a plastic bag taped up to the underside of the fridge. Pull the front vent cover off and you should see (feel) a bag taped up there with the test paperwork in it. If you don't have it let us know and maybe I can email it to you.

SOURCE: freezer temp too high

Air must circulate in the freezer when working properly. I am guessing the recirculating vent in the freezer may be blocked which would not bring warmer air back to the coil to be cooled. As for the door, I theorize there may be too much negative pressure which pulls the door in while you were pulling out ... don't have solution yet.

SOURCE: Freezer not cold enough; fridge OK

Hello cokoliso,
Welcome to Fixya

You said, your Trio won't make ice. Freezer stays at about 25 degrees regardless of control setting. Fridge maintains 40 degrees at mid setting. Shouldn't the freezer be close to zero? Is there a way to check the temperature sensor in the freezer?

To check the temperature you can buy a refrigerator thermometer at the hardware store.
Ask if it can be used in the freezer too!

The fridge sounds slightly to cold and the freezer not enough.
Fist look in your freezer and check if the articles there are full to the max and covering the air vents usually found in the rear of the freezer.If so clear an opening for the freezer to breath.
Refrigerators and freezers usually share the cold air and I've seen this be the problem on many occasions.
If freezer was not I blocking the vents or even full to the max.

Then pull the plug out or if you can not reach the plug, trip the breaker off for 5 minutes and see if this resets the system.BUT do not plug the fridge back in before at least 3 minutes.

Let me know how it goes and send me any questions.
Thank You, Huuum

It sounds like you have it pinpointed with the control being the problem. There is an adjustment, but it's complicated, and there's different types. A refrigerator is like politics..you have an obvious annoyance, there, but often the core cause is less obvious. Ambient room temperatures in winter dropping lower tend to trick a fridge into thinking it's time to shut off inappropriately..the control sensor in the milk-side says it's safe; while in the freezer, your ice cream is doomed..sort of like the congress and senate, if you know what I'm saying. Your problem, however, is the opposite, as your 'ice-box' doesn't stop running at all (right? yes, in fact you better go catch it before it runs away, ha-ha!)..well. Something simple that can cause your problem is plugged condenser coils which are next to the compressor. You can see them by removing the cardboard cover in back. ALWAYS REPLACE THE COVER. The coils are either a box-type or they spread all around underneath. If they are full of dust and pet hair, and chewing-gum foil wrappers, etc., get a long wire bristle brush and poke it around to free the coils of all that air-flow restriction, and that will make a big difference..Also, voting out all the incumbents. Happy New Year. And G-d bless America

the thermostat isn't cycling because it's to cold in the garrage,the machine isn't calling for cold air because the garrage is so cold so the fridge isn't gonna run until the temperature starts to get warm and then the fridge will start again to keep it cold.put some heat in the garrage and it will run fine

Frigidaire side by side - fridge side temp too low


It sounds as though your thermostat is not cycling your compressor off causing it to run until the point of freezing. If you sit and listen, you will hear it hum. If it never stops humming, 9 times out of 10, the power outage shorted your thermostat.

Food stays frozen regardless of temperature setting


It is possible it has a bad thermostat but most likely cause would be a bad damper motor.  It is the vent inside the fridge that opens and closes, based on temp. setting, to allow cold air from the freezer into the fridge section.
