I have a Frigidaire Side by Side Refrigerator with a defrost problem

I have a model FRS26ZRFW1 Frigidaire, bought on June 97. I followed your instructions for a similar problem and replaced de thermostat. The freezer still making frost build up, closing the circulation of the freeze and not cooling the refrigerator. Because my model is different I couldn’t find the timmer to replace.
I did check the heat element with the digital multimeter set to de beep position, but I couldn't hear anything. I also tested the new thermostat and it checked closed when cold and opened after removed from the ice.
What should I do?

Your heater should def "BEEP" when checking for continuity. if not you got a bad heater, defrost timer should be located under left or right side of kickplate

How do you put your refrigerator on defrost mode


Hey friend, thank you for the post!

From my understanding you are trying to set your Frigidaire refrigerator into defrost mode. In order to be able to provide you accurate information on how to do so could you provide me with your model number please? You can locate your serial tag (which lists your model number) on the inside cabinet of the fresh food compartment normally on the left side in a top mount. But on a side by side and a French door refrigerator it can be found on the right hand side. I look forward to hearing back from you. -Matt

Location of defrost timer on frigidaire model lfus2613f3


Hello Friend, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

It appears that the defrost timer of your Frigidaire refrigerator (LFUS2613F3) uses the main control board to energize defrost. The defrost timer is located at the front of the control console in the fresh food compartment (display that controls all functions). I do hope this information proves to be helpful! - Z

Where is the defrost relay button?



Frigidaire equips most of its refrigerator models with automatic defrosting capabilities. This means that owners don't have to set a calendar reminder to manually defrost. The internal automatic defrost control and timing mechanism is placed at the bottom of most Frigidaire refrigerators, next to the stationary panicon1.png that captures water - even the defrosted meltwater is automatically evaporated. You might be confused about how the defrost timer works, thinking it is broken. Frigidaire understood this might be an issue for some owners and suggests double-checking the defroster for normal operation because it may not be malfunctioning at all.

Whirlpool Gold freezes up to frige side


If freezer is icing up, you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model
