Question about Frigidaire Refrigerators
Replaced relay switch with hard start 3 in one. Cleaned all coils (which I do on a regular basis so see no issue there). Ran amperage test on compressor and it registers normal (6). Model number is FRS26H5ASB4. Compressor is Tecumseh.
My name is Peter. I am a retired field service technician.
I am sorry for the bad news. You have a restriction in your seal system. You should have a even frost pattern on all of the evaporator coils. You probably have a large block of ice in the upper right corner of your evaporator coil. The is where your capillary tube is. It is a small tube where the high pressure (165 PSI) liquid side turns to the low pressure (65 PSI) vapor. The thru hole in this tube is about the size of a small sewing needle. Broken down refrigerant or oil from the compressor can plug this tube.
You may have a refrigerant leak at tubing joints. If you feel an oily substance around the joint you have a leak.
Purchase your next unit at a Sears Outlet Store. You get a full year service contract and will save a couple of hundred dollars.
The part in your unit are probably worth a couple of hundred dollars. Strip the unit and sell them on Ebay. When you remove the control boards ground your self by touching something that is steel. Static electricity will knock out a board.
