See if you have frost running down the back wall of freezer. if you do remove panel and defrost evaporator..there would be a defective part in the defrost system if this is whats going on.

if not, check to makes sure the freezer fans are running and condensor fan is running. a failure of one of these causes the same problem..lastly, make sure compressor is running, not just condensor fan motor. do you hear a click every few minutes? if so, maybe a bad relay. there is no model for me to go on, so check these first...Bruce

Hi.. feel the dividing rdge between fridge and freezer.. is it warm?.. chances are that the little fan at the back of the fridge freezer that helps cool the compressor, has snagged own it's own wire... it's a weak fan, like you get in a computer, but it does a lot of work.. without it, the coolent does not do it's job, which results in your device not cooling things properly

I bought a model FRT18B5JB2 in August 'o9 to put out in the garage for extra cooling and freezing room This winter the freezer is not keeping items frozen. They are no thawed completely, but they are not...


Refrigerators do not work correctly in the winter in unconditioned space.
It is too cold for the unit to run normally.The compressor oil gets sluggish and strains the compressor when it does run.
The thermostat never warms enough for the unit to come on and run.
Therefore the temperatures in fresh food and freezer stay at the top end of the set point. This would cause about 42-43 in fresh food and around 18-25 in the freezer.
In the spring time it should start running correctly again.

Frigidaire refrigerator with a broken freezer


He is correct. The temp in the refrig controls how often and for how long the refrig runs. Lets say the temp in your garage is 34 degrees, and you have your refrig set to 36 degrees: The refrig will never run, the fresh foods section will cool to 34, and the freezer will warm to 34. Even if the temp is 45 in the garage and you set the fresh foods to be 33, the refrig will not need to run long enough and often enough to keep the freezer temp cold enough. You will most likely need to have the ambient room temp at least 55 degrees to get satisfactory refrigerator performance. Insulating the refrig will not help. (by the way, outdoor beverage vending machines use an internal heater in cold weather to prevent liquid beverages inside from freezing,..... so using that info, you could put a low wattage heater in your refrig to make your refrig run enough to make the freezer section work. The %&#* with that, just move it into the house!)
