Question about Frigidaire FRS26ZSG

Open Question

I have had my Frigidaire FRS26ZRG for 10 years. Last week it stopped working. I had it repaired about 5 years ago and I don't really want to put too much more money into it. I would like to know if the compressor is going bad or could it be something simple. The refrigerator side is not getting cold at all. The freezer is not working properly but you can feel some cool air but not cold enough to keep food. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: Frigidaire Side-By-Side Top Not Cooling

sounds like its froze up. the coil is in the back of the freezer and blows into the freezer via a fan then cold air is carried to the fridge via another fan. more than likely condensation due to weather conditions has built up on your coil and has froze up or your fridge fan has stopped working. unplug fridge for a day to let thaw, if this doesnt work check you air distribution fan in top.
as for the lights not working in the freezer the switch is on the left hand side of freezer wall under ice holding tank sometimes water from thawing ice get on it and it wont come out all the way, take a blow dryer to it to thaw and dry it out.

SOURCE: I HAVE A FRIGIDAIRE REFRIGERATOR

if needs sealed system repair problaby cheaper to buy new. try removing the back wall of freezer section, is there excessive frost build up??? is the fan behind tere even running(if not replace hte fan). if theres frost built up hten look for a defrost problem. Perhaps a defrost timer, defrost thermostat, or even a bad heater assy. if you remove to coil adn find a ball of frost in 1 corner nad rest of evaporator is clean and dry, thats an indicator of sealed system problem

SOURCE: my frigidaire refrigerator does not

Had this same problem. Ice formed on the back of the freezer compartment, but the refriderator area would be about 50 degrees. Checked the fan and defroster timer and everything worked fine. Watched it all defrost and ice build up again. Finally called for service. First guy said he needed to take the unit back to the shop. Second guy said there was an internal leak in the sealed case...couldn't be fixed. Finally realized I had bought an extended warranty (yippee!!) and called the authorized service dealer. Tech came out, said there was a service bulletin whereby the freon line by the evaporator coils was bent a little to extremly and was causing a restriction in the freon...thus the ice build up. He tweaked the line a little and now it has run perfect for 6 months. Would be nice if these bulletins from the factory were posted somewhere...

Hello,

You may be having a freon issue. Read some more info about this here. I type the longer version on my site. There are also factory service manuals to that may be helpful.

Sounds like you have faulty water inlet valves. They may not be opening fully. You can test the power to the valves with a voltmeter to see if the power is quitting or if the valves are malfunctioning

I have a 10 year old Kenmore top freezer that clunks when it shut

i would not spend a dime on it,
a compressor is around 200 to put it in could cost up to 200 more, then its a long shot with who will be doing the work
10 years is the avergae age of this unit so count your self lucky
and invest in a replacement
the old one may
last a year, but it will go
your loosing the center seal

I have the same TV which had the same issue ( green in picture ) - back on 10/2007. I called Sony. They had their technician replace the optical box ( factory defect ). There was no charge for the repair even though TV was out of first year of warranty. Call Sony.

10 yr old Frigidaire ice maker stopped making ice


try forcing the cycle by manually triggering the cycle a few times. Sometimes you can detach the trip arm or turn the tray by hand by disconnecting it from the gear. There may have been a switch bumped to turn it off or the switch somehow jammed. Maybe check for freeze-up. If there is water in it, it's going somewhere.

It would depend on the age of the refrigerator whether repair is economical. If the refrigerator is under ten years old repair it. If it is over ten years old you have to consider how much life is remaining for the refrigerator. Burnt smell source must be located because that is the key to your problem. It could be a simple matter of replacing the switch in the door.
