It appears that your auto defrosting system (if you have one) is not working. So your evaporator coil is frozen up - all that ice serves as an insulator and not enough cold air is getting down into frig section. Until you replace either the freezer defrost element or the defrost timer all you need to do is unplug for a few hours till it fully defrosts then plug back in - will work fine for a few days at normal internal temps till the ice builds up again.

If your timer and defrost element are both working properly, THEN, you might want to check if you have enough refrigerant in the system - you may have a leak.

Freezer wont freeze ice cubes


Hello Friend, this is Z. Thank you for your post!

I interpret that you are having trouble with the freezer of your Frigidaire refrigerator not freezing ice cubes. It appears that your refrigerator is not properly cooling. Make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly. Please allow 24 hours for temperature to stabilize. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your freezer status has changed successfully. Thank you!

Freezer used as a frige?


it may be possible. Turn the temperature on the lowest setting and see what happens. If it still freezes everything up then it is not posible. If it doesn't freeze everything , then check the temperature with any temp probe. It should run at somewhere between 36 and 38 degrees. This is the normal cool setting on a refrigerator.

New whirlpool refrig. freezer ok at 0 but refrig


The freezer get the first crack at cooling and combination units have a fan and adjustable vents to steal some of the cooling capacity for the refrigerator. The vent are normally located in the back of the refrigerator compartment and with these, you can balance the cooling capacity between freezer and fridge. I recommend you swap your thermometer back and forth until you get the balance you want; typically the freezer should be at 5 degrees F or below and the fridge at 35-40 degrees F. Adjusting the control for temperature and having the vents set to supply the cold air you want in each compartment should give you the range you want in each.

What does front breathing mean?


"Front Breathing" usually means the refrigerator has a fan forced cooling system (condenser fan) that gets it cool air (and usually exhausts the warm air) via a front vent. The vent is usually located on the bottom or top.
