Question about Frigidaire FRS23KF7AB Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Light is on but not cold.

I have a Frididaire. After a power outage (may be a power surge too) the fridg internal light came on (both the frezzer and the fridge side) but it not cold. I tried reseting the circuit breaker, but still it did not work. The compressor motor is not running. Would this be the problem of the thermostat or the cold module? How do I go about getting the schematic of this unit? It's a Frigidaire Gallery FRS26ZGH.

Thank you so much.

Issue with Kenmore Refrigerator/Freezer

ok,1st check on fridge side toward upper back of the top and feel for air coming thru, and there is another one down possibly behind crisper .I had this same deal. Had to do total defrost,, put food in cooler,, theres two blower fans in these types of fridges,,one in the bottom back,, and one in the back of the frezzer,, I used an old hair dryer and let it blow warm to top interior of frezzer,, careful not to let any cords hang/drop in any water!!,ok once done dry out as much water as possible, turn fridge on set both controls to 4,when fridge kicks on do the feel test,, you may need to close the frezzer door, air should be felt near top inside of fridge,if so than shut fridge side and feel inside frezzer near bottom and air should be felt,, side-by-side need to circulate air from frezzer to fridge, then back to frezzer

My Kenmore refrigerator is not cooling properly. Freezer portion works fine but not refrigerator. Came on suddenly.

I had the same problem. The frezzer worked but the fridge was not getting cold. What I have learned is that the frezzer make the fridge cold, so if the frezzer is working then something is blocking the cold air to get into the fridge. Most likely ice. The air come in at the bottom of the inside of the fridge next to the frezzer. Pull everything out of the frezzer, then unscrew the plannel that runs along the back and you see if there is ice. If so turn frezzer off and dry out the frezzer. I used hot water.

After power outage, fridge does not work but freezer does

Sounds like a thermostat got damaged when the power surged when utilities were restored. Thermostats are usually behind the temperature controller. Hope I've helped. BB

Power won't stay on although there is electricity. If i reset, the power light comes on, but only for 2 seconds- the fridge is now 60 degrees. We lost power yesterday afternoon- could this have fried it?

After a power outage and possible power surge it is very probable serious damage was done. Worst case senario being a grounded compressor. I know of nothing you can do yourself. Time for a service call.

Fridge not cold

i have had this same problem. Pull the back cover in the freezer off. If there is a bunch of ice on the coil change to heating element.

Fridge and freezer not staying cold but lights and fan working

the problem is going to more then likely in the main control board which is on the back of the refrigerator in a little compartment this board is bad about going out if you have power surges or outages
