Question about Frigidaire FRT21P5A Top Freezer Refrigerator
Bought a new ffrigidaire ridge for the garage. then i found out that if its too cold in garage, the freezer wont be as cold as it should be. on a few blogs, i heard they make a garage kit which is basically just a small heating coil that goes around the cold control. i installed that and took temperatures. i have a thermometer in a cup of water in fridge part and it reads 33f which is colder than i want, but the freezer air temp fluctuates between 0 and 22F. the freezer i just have the thermometer sitting in the air. the door wasnt opened all night so it wasnt that. am i measuring the freezer temp wrong? is it possible that the fridge is so cold that it doesnt run the compressor which in turn doesnt allow the freezer to get cold enough? i have both settings at max coldness to try and get the freezer temp down.
Yes it is very possible that exactly what you are describing can be happening. Also try a thermometer frozen in a cup of water to get more accurate temps. Also 33 in the fridge is very normal for the cold control set on max and the heater installed. Let me know the temps in the frz with the thermometer sensing product temp not air temp which fluctuates often.
