Question about Frigidaire FRS26R4C Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

My admiral fridge freezer suddenly stopped working -

Admiral Fridge Freezer (side by side)
GC2224GEKB SERIAL 11243032JG The repair man discovered it would only work when the fridge door was open so said we needed a new control board. He isolated the door light switch and the fridge and freezer both work now. We sent for a new board (Maytag board control 67006740) but once fitted, it won't accept the program code. There is a little sticker on the original board "Jazz 13" but the replacement board has "Jazz 14" on it. is it the wrong board or is the problem elsewhere - anyone any ideas please??
I also have the problem with the fridge freezing over and Maytag told me just to blow a hairdrier on the cold air inlet from the freezer. It was only a month old the first time it did this and has done it again several times. Can't leave anything in the fridge when we go on hols for fear of it all freezing up! It's out of warranty now and maytag want a fortune just to come out and look!

Re: My admiral fridge freezer suddenly stopped working -

I took the time to look up your Model # and you do have the right board. Jazz 14 Should just be a revision one higher than your origional. Describe to me exactly what happens when you try to program it. You may be missing one little step. Make sure you are doing every step exactly right. I too can miss one little confirmation stroke and it seems like it wont work. I Can email you the tech sheet for your model. This will show you how to test all the sensors, and the damper to determine why the FF side is getting too cold. I will also help on my end as much as i can

Admiral american fridge freezer constantly blowing cold air into fridge compartment.

Changing the freezer settings won't really make a difference because regardless its still going to be freezing. The way the machine works is the freezer cools the fridge, and there should be a control in the fridge that operates the baffles in the airway between the freezer and fridge and reduces the amount of air that enters into the fresh food section.

Admiral side by side fridge defrosted and no longer cooling

Replace the compressor start relay.
If this does not solve the problem you most likely have a bad compressor.
Your fridge may be under a 5 year compressor warranty.

1 Answer

Admiral side by side

All the cold air from your freezer gets pushed into the fridge with a fan in your freezer section. So your problem is from the fact that this cold air isn't get to your fridge.
- the door that allows this cold air into the fridge, normally in the top left corner of the fridge, is stuck shut and needs replacement.
-the freezer isn't defrosting and restricting the air flow
-the temp controller for the fridge is damaged and thinks that the fridge is cold enough.
