Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire freezer, model# FRT18S6AWX, is not getting cold enough in either the freezer or refrigerator. I suggest changing the settings to a colder setting and give it 24 hours to stabilize at the set temperatures. Also, I recommend cleaning the toe grille and condenser coils. You can do this by taking the toe grille off and cleaning it with soap and water and rinsing it thoroughly with water. While the toe grille is off, get your vacuum with extension, and vacuum underneath your refrigerator. 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 refrigerator status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

SOURCE: fridgidare, freezer cold fridge warm

sounds like you may have gotten a refridgerant leak causing a low charge condition. some refridgerators have a evaporator fan if this quit working it will cause it to freeze up .thus the freezer does not use a fan and it will still get cold

SOURCE: Freezer wrk OK but temperature in the bottom fridge not cold

If you have a frost build up on the interior back wall of the freezer, you have a defrost issue. This would include a bad defrost control, bad heater or terminator.
If there is not a frost build up then you may have a bad evaporator fan motor.

SOURCE: Frigidaire model ftr18b freezer works, fridge is only cool

Info relating specifically to the Frigidaire FRT18B5ABB:

1.Refrigerator unplugged remove the bottom back panel. (Access cover with label. The rectangular shaped panel on the back, at the bottom) Place the screws in a container.
Also remove the Kickplate Grille in the front, and the defrost pan.

2.Use the wand tip on your vacuum cleaner, and vacuum this area out. Pay special attention to the condenser coils, and the fan. Use care as you don't want to bend the fan blades. After you have vacuumed up as much as possible, see if your vacuum has where you can attach the hose to blow air through it. An air compressor, hose, and air nozzle would be REAL handy right now! Blow the condenser coils, and all areas clean of any gunk. (Hair, spider webs, etc.) If this is not feasible for you, you'll need some sort of long, thin, dust 'bunny', and have to dislodge this 'gunk' physically. Then vacuum.

3.BE SURE to replace the bottom back panel, (Access Cover)! It is a VERY necessary item! If your fridge doesn't have one at present, make a temporary one of cardboard, and tape it on. This access cover is needed.

If your refrigerator side is only cool, and your freezer is cold, you may have a problem with the Cold Control, (Temperature Control), or the Defrost Timer. (Timer-Defrost)

Why is the fridge and freezer not cold enough


If the fan isn't running neither section will be cold enough. There may be something jammed against the fan blade or the motor could be defective.

Fridge not freezing meats


I was writing a big note here before then hit the wrong button, it was just a bunch of jargon anyway. Yes it is the condenser fan motor causing your problems. Doesn't cool the refrigerant properly than nothing works. I would change the fan before it causes any damage to the compressor.

Freezer & fridge not cold enough


Please check the Thermostat switch settings. Try to put it to max cool and then see the results. If it still does not cool the you have to check the refrigent. It is lee and leaking somewhere. Get a technician and get it charged up.

that model number does not come up in my program, so I cannot give you any concrete advice. The fact that your freezer is great is a good sign, nothing major. Sounds like you may have a bad freezer fan motor, not blowing cold air down to the fridge section. but the fact that it is intermittent like that, you might have a faulty main control board. Without proper inspection, I cant say for sure.

Freezer cold but not fridge


too much ice bulid up will stop enough cold air being blown into the fridge.Try turning it off letting all ice melt then turn it back on again and set thermostat at a lower temp.There may be ice you can't see.
