Question about Frigidaire FRT21P5A Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

I am not getting cool air from the freezer vent - though the pump seems to be fine. I have frigidaire model FPE21TRW1 (top freezer style). Any suggestions? Its old so would like to try home repair - not worth service call!

    Thanks heatman101! Unfortunately my problem does not seem to be either ice build-up or dusty heat coils. The unit is in the garage and is not connected to water line - so no ice. I cleaned the black coils at the back just to be sure and they were not too dirty to begin with - squeaky clean now! I still only get warm air from the freezer. Anything else I can try?

My Maytag MFF2558VEM Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator doesn't keep cool


What you should be looking for is a blocked air flow. The fan in the freezer will push air up to the fridge and cool it off. Look for a dead fan motor in the freezer or a blocked air vent Good luck

My frigidaire refrigerator does not seem to cool no freeze


If you have a sxs refrigerator then you have an issue with the damper door/switch not letting cool air from the freezer section to the refrigerator section. If you have a top mount freezer refrigerator unit, then you have a problem with the top venting system from the cabinet's ceiling.

Frigidaire Refrigerator not cooling


Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer/control board
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.
