Question about Frigidaire FRS26ZSG
I have a frididaire side by side fridge freezer model # FRS26ZSG. The other day the freezer had a burnt smell inside (No smell on the outside). So bad the ice cream bars taste like it. I took it outside and blew all the dust and dirt from under the fridge. Fan underneath works fine. Took the cover off inside the freezer and the fan there works fine and the coils get really cold.(No frost build up). Then the freezer would get cold and turn off and wouldn't turn back on until I messed with the thermostat. Pulled thermostat out and it is not burnt and the wires look good. Reinstalled and now the freezer gets to 9 degrees at any setting on the thermostat, and the fridge is at 42 degrees. No matter where I put the thermostat in the fridge it will not get below 42. No matter where i put the thermostat in the freezer it will not shut off until 9 degrees, but it will kick back on now.
Sounds like a thermostat problem, but why would it affect the fridge thermostat?
Please help, don't want to buy a new fridge
Generally speaking it is the refrigerator control that controls the compressor operation. Refrigerator is cooled by air from the freezer. When the refrigerator gets down to its designed temperature it shuts off the compressor. The freezer control determines how much air is allowed to flow into the refrigerator section and there-by controls the freezer temperature.
