Is that everything in your freezer or just in the fridge. Is this a frostfree model. Often if defrost fails in a frost free model then it is unable to duct cold air to the refrigerator side of things. To fix- turn it off for a day or two.

Frig & freezer not cooling enough. Ice forming in back of bottom freezer.


You need to have the defrost cycle checked.( heater, limit stat, timer) If the frig can't defrost air can't move across your coils to cool properly. To temporarily get by until you can get a repairman, use a blow dryer to melt the ice build up. Once melted it will work normally for about 2 days till it freezes up again.

Frigidaire Side By Side Not Cooling


That sounds like the start relay is buzzing. Unplug and lets check the compressor to see how hot and if too hot to hold your hand on the top of compressor we need to leave it unplugged until we find out if the start relay, start capacitor, overload or if the condenser fan stops after running a short while.
