Fridigaire FRU17G4JW - all refrigerator unit not cold

I have an all refrigerator Fridigaire FRU17G4JW refrigerator that is 2 1/2 years old.  Initially, it the temperature was set too hish and it froze some of the food in the lower bins of the refrigerator.  I reset it lower but it now does not seem to be getting cold enough.  I have reset the temperature to max cool and it does not seem to be that cold. I''ve read the manual which does not provide any useful information and have checked that the fuses are ok in my breaker box. I pulled it out and dusted the back of the refrigerator.  What might be the problem or do I need to call someone to fix it?

New Refrigerator Past Warantee Not staying cold

It sounds like your condenser coils need to be swapped.

Replacement parts are available from the manufacturer and aftermarket suppliers. More conveniently, you may be able to find replacement parts through the retailer that sold you the refrigerator or at an appliance parts store.

Please let me know if this helps. Good luck!

Good day,
Recommended minimum temperature for a refrigerator to operate properly is approx. 55 degrees.
If it is colder than that where it's located, then the first problem you'll encounter is a freezer too warm.
This is by design. The thermostat that controls the whole machine is located in the fresh food compartment. As the temperature in the room approaches 35 to 40 degrees or colder, the machine will not run.

Milk and other items keep freezing in my side by side fridigaire

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Refrigerator door won't shut

Check to see if the door gasket has forzen water that is preventing it from collapsing like it should and wedging the door open. This would most likely be on the hinge side of the door.

Also make sure the gasket is not bent or warped and binding as it closes.

Let us know if you find nothing wrong there and we can look further.

Refridgerator problem

Low refrigerant level is a common cause to this problem. Try a lower setting and if that doesn't work, you'll have to call the repairman :( Best regards, Denis
