The ice buildup in back of freezer is a sign that the auto defrost mechanism is not working. Check the defrost timer, and heater element, defrost thermostat to remedy issue.

Why is my freezer and fridge not cold?


Hey friend, thank you for your post!

I see that your Frigidaire refrigerator is not cooling. Sounds like a possible issue within the control panel or sealed system. If your appliance is stuck in a defrost mode you can perform a reset on it which would be to flip your household breaker in the off position for roughly ten minutes. If that does not correct the issue I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional to properly come out and diagnose your appliance. -Matt

My refrigerator is not cool, but the freezer works fine.


Sounds like a defrost problem.

It is a defrost problem since the ice that freezes on the freezer coils
is not being melted by the defrost system.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician butyou could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info Also check evaporator fan in freezer If this was helpful please rate me
Thanks for using fixya

Refrigerator is stuck in defrost mode.


If the compressor is running and not getting cold I would say that you have burnt out your compressor.
If it was stuck in defrost you wouldn't hear the frig running. When in defrost the compressor stops while the frig defrosts.

Came home from a road trip and our GE Profile refrigerator was and still is, making a horrible buzzing sound. the freezer door was slightly ajar and the freezer temperature was 43 degrees. It's slowly...


Unplug it now and defrost contact me after you get that done. Because the door was open the refrigerator possibly missed some defrost and the control board is confused. Let me know, Thanks Sea Breeze

Doesnt get cold??


Okay,
Defective compressor, refrigerant low from a leak in the system, dirty condenser coils, condenser fan not working, bad compressor relay or capacitor, main thermostat control not working, thermostat needs to be set at proper setting, frozen evaporator coils do to faulty defrost timer, defrost heater coil broken, or the defrost determination thermostat has stayed in the open position, which would result in no defrost and the ice blockage would stop air the circulation, defective evaporator fan, defective door switch which controls the evaporator fan when one opens and closes the freezer door. Freezer drain clogged which would possibly cause the fan to be stuck because of ice built up around it.

Any possibility you can help troubleshoot a larger upright freezer? Our freezer is 3 years old. It sounds like it is working -- I can feel cold air and hear it humming, but as of yesterday it stopped...


Assuming the thermostat is set to call for cooling (sometimes they get bumped), check the condenser coils, fan, etc for debris build up and clean as needed.

Is the freezer frost free? If so, it's possible the defrost timer is stuck in defrost. There should either be a mechanical timer or it could be electronic these days. Check for bad connections or any obvious signs of damage (burn marks)

Make sure the freezer door closes tightly
