On some models you can by pass the filter assembly you can do this by looking at the rear of the the water inlet valve you will see the lines going to the filter remove these line and look at the way the water goes into the ref you can move these lines around to bypass the filter this will tell ya if the filter assembly is bad I have seen where you cant use the filter on these machines and have to go to a in line filter.good luck and get back to me on this i will help you as much as i can

Why is everything in the refrigerator freezing, and, why doesn't the door & doors (side-by-side) close tight?

Sounds like your door or doors are being held open by an object inside. This is causing the cooling system to run constantly and thus freezing items in the fridge. Check that the shelf under the ice drawer is overpacked. the dispenser runs inro things on the shelf right under that storage compartment occasionally on my fridge. Hope that helps.

Frigidaire Side by Side Fridge. FRS26H5DSB4, both controls are turned to 0 and still everything in fridge freezes. Have cleaned the coils and samething. Thanks,

The compressor run time isn't being controlled any more and either the sensor or the control itself will need replacement. You might have noticed that the compressor is running either continuously or at least too long.

My Frigidaire refrigerator side by side is freezing drinks.

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Fridge is freezing everything!

There is a flap that directs the air from freezer to fridge. Sometimes this flap can stick Or the actuator that controls the flap can go out. Same with autodefrost timer which seems to give a lot of people trouble. Thermostat is at the top, uncirculated cold air sinks, food in the bottom of the fridge freezes.

Frigidaire FRS23H5SB6 side-by-side freezing food

It sounds like the fan in the freezer behind the rear panel is not working. You should be able to hear it. It won't run with the door open so hold the door switch in.

FRE196AS frigidaire fridge/freezer - fridge freezes everything!

Hello Nicola,
I suggest you contact Frigidaire in the UK, and explain the problem to them. I have included their website for you to do so. You can even call them. I checked with Frigidaire in the US and Customer Service tells me your fridge should not be failing at this point. Contact Customer Service and tell them how disappointed you are in the product; explain the issue; and insist they offer assistance to repair it. Frigidaire Customer Service here does not want to lose any customers, and that includes you. Be nice, but firm with them. I hope this helps you in some way. Let me know if I can further assist. Just trying to to help. :)
