Question about Frigidaire Freezer Refrigeration White Upright Large Manual Defrost Freezer Model FFU2124DW
Most fridges nowadays have little heaters inside that defrost the ice buildup that is most likely blocking the cold air from going to the fridge from the freezer.
That may be the problem or it could be a sensor or timer problem that is connected to the heater.
All of the cooling in refrigerators is normally done in the freezer compartment. A fan circulates cold air from the freezer into the refrigerator compartment to cool it. Most likely this fan has quit working.
In short the most common reason for the failure is a problem with the self defrost feature of the refrigerator. This will cause ice to form on the evaporator coils that are located in the back of the freezer compartment. Defrost failure is often caused by a failed defrost timer or adaptive defrost control depending on the model of the refrigerator. If the defrost timer is not the problem the defrost heater or the defrost heater thermostat can also be the problem. These are located in the freezer compartment and can be accessed by removing the back panel inside the freezer compartment. These can be checked for opens with a volt/ohm meter. There is a fan in the freezer compartment that blows the cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator section to cool it. Make sure this fan is working.
