    Thanks! I have narrowed it to the defrost - took panel off checked continuity on heater coil and thermostat - both were fine. Put back together - now, so far, is working fine! Timer is kicking the coil on every 10 hrs or so - wire connections must have been loose. Thanks for your help!!

Take the back cardboard panel off of the back and feel if the compressor is hot. alsocheck to see if the condensor fan is running. if the fan is inop, change it. If the compressor is hot, find a clamp on amp probe and clamp it on one of the wires going to the compressor.If the reading is over 5, you have a bad compressor. You may be able to get by with a RCO410 three in one hardstart.

There is a vent that is connected from the freezer down to the fridge right where the fan is,make sure nothing is blocking it.

Hope this helped.Let me know by rating me or

Frigidaire refrigerator is warm on top of frig and freezer but fine on the bottom of both.


i suspect the fan is not working. take the back panel off inside the freezer and check that the fan is free to rotate, check for continuity thro the fan motor and check you have power to the fan

By you description of the problem and this model of fridge it sounds like the the relay on the compressor has failed and will need to be replaced. Especially if this happened overnight.

Frig not cold but freezer is ice maker not making much ice either


Is your fan blowing in the freezer? Frost on the back wall of the freezer usually indicates a defrost problem... defrost themostate, heaters, take back panel off and check evap for frost build up and if your fan in working.
