Question about Frigidaire FRT21H8 Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Refrigerator not cold enough

Noticed yesterday that things seemed not as cool as usual. Thought it was because I had just put a bunch of new groceries in there and they just weren't cool yet. This morning same thing. Felt about as cold as a cooler after the ice has melted. The freezer is still working fine though. Is there anything I can do myself to try to get it working better? (i.e. cleaning coils in the back or something?) I already tried adjusting the temp., but usually it's plenty cold on the setting that it was on.

Freezer cold, refrigerator warm


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.

GE side by side not cooling properly/outside surface hot


please check the condenser fan motor. it is probably not running or the condenser is very dirty.

remove the rear cover and it will show you the compressor and the condenser fan.
if the fan is not running, try to rotate it manually and feel if it is sticking .

if it is, it may just need the old wd 40 lubricant.
