Frigidaire is freezing everything!

I have a frigidaire side by side that is about 5 1/2 years old. Model FRS26H5ASB8 that never keep the refrigerator side any to cold. I always had the temp turned all the way up to 6 now suddenly it started to freeze everything. I cleaned the coils and everything under the fridge. Even after turning the temp control all the way down it is still keeping the temperature in the frige below freezing. What do i need to d to fix it?

SOURCE: Frigidaire FRT18HB5DW2 fridge not cooling

Sounds like an air flow problem to the lower unit. Take the sheetmetal or plastic rear cover off the freezer back wall and make sure the coils are frosted up good and even but NOT a block of ice inches thick (air needs to circulate and a blocked coil won't let air move over it efficiently). Make sure the fan is running to move the air around. In the fridge area make sure the air dampers are letting the cold air from the freezer down to the fridge compartment. Depending on what you find will determine the next steps so let us know.

SOURCE: does outside temperature affect performance of freezer

Top mount refrigerator installed in a garage and the food in the freezer is defrosting when
the temperature in the garage goes below 55 degrees fahrenheit.
On top mount refrigerators you cycle the compressor and fan/fans from the food
compartment temperature. When the room temperature gets colder than 55 F, you have
long off times waiting for the food compartment to warm enough to trip the cold control.
This long off time is allowing the freezer temperature to get high enough that food can start
to defrost.
There is a kit for refrigerators installed in applications where the temperature can go as low
as 34 F and still maintain good freezer temperatures. The kit part number is 5303918301
and it contains a heater that mounts in the control box and an instruction sheet advising
how to install the heater.
Kit 5303918301 contains:
Part # 5303950194 Instruction sheet
Part # 241532101 Heater

Why doesn't my Frigidaire FRT21TNG freeze or cool fresh section?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRT21TNG, is not freezing or cooling. I also see that the coils are not freezing, the drain line and everything cleaned, and that the capacitor was replaced. From this point, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine why it will not cool as it should. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRC05L5DW1, is freezing the inside as well as running constantly. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at the circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. When power is restored, if you are still having the same issues, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician. Hope this is helpful.

FRE196AS frigidaire fridge/freezer - fridge freezes everything!


Hello Nicola,
I suggest you contact Frigidaire in the UK, and explain the problem to them. I have included their website for you to do so. You can even call them. I checked with Frigidaire in the US and Customer Service tells me your fridge should not be failing at this point. Contact Customer Service and tell them how disappointed you are in the product; explain the issue; and insist they offer assistance to repair it. Frigidaire Customer Service here does not want to lose any customers, and that includes you. Be nice, but firm with them. I hope this helps you in some way. Let me know if I can further assist. Just trying to to help. :)

Top mounted freezer on refrigerator not working


Move the refrigerator to a room that is at least 50 degrees F.

Temps on most refrigerators are regulated by the fresh foods temp. If your garage is let's say 35 degrees, the fresh foods temp will most likely never raise enough to turn the refrigerator on. With the refrigerator never running, the freezer compartment will warm to 35 degrees, resulting in everything melting. Even if garage is a bit warmer, say 45, the refrig will not run long enough for the freezer to maintain a low enough temperture. If the garage temp falls to below freezing, say 20 degrees, the food in the fresh foods compartment will freeze. (outdoor beverage dispensers have internal heaters to prevent product from freezing !) Please don't rate this if not a Fix-Ya for you, as anything else lowers my score.

My refridgerator keeps cycling on and off. temperature is50 degrees . where do i put r-134 in on high side at? thanks.


Hi katdaddy,
Welcome to fixya,

You said,
Your refrigerator keeps cycling on and off. temperature is50 degrees .

This means either you have a leak that must be detected befrore you re establish freon pressure or your thermostat is bad.

What is the model # and age of the refrigerator?

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.
