FRIGIDAIRE FRS26LF8C* Refrigerator Model Number: FRS26LF8C* Style: Side-by-Side w/Ice thru door Brand: FRIGIDAIRE Defrost: Automatic Manufacturer: ELECTROLUX HOME PRODUCTS - FREEZER Built-in Ice Maker: Yes Access Type: Door
Capacity and Size Measures Fresh Food Volume: 16.48 (cu. ft.) Height: 68 (inches) Freezer Volume: 9.48 (cu. ft.) Width: 36 (inches) Total Volume: 25.96 (cu. ft.) Depth: 34 (inches)
Energy Efficiency Annual Energy Use 654 kWh / year
The annual energy usage among 171 similar models ranges from 617 kWh to 732 kWh.
Residential and consumer refrigerator energy use is measured in kilowatt hours per year.
Maximum Energy Use
728 kWh / year This figure is the maximum energy use allowed by law (in the US) for this class of refrigerator. Compare the annual energy use figure to this figure to get a sense of how efficient this particular model is. If the two numbers are the same, then this model is as inefficient as allowed by law. Highly energy efficient refrigerators may use 20 - 30% less energy per year.
If you look at the rear wall inside the freezer compartment down low and find a bunch of frost on that wall, you have an automatic defrost system failure. The most likely part that has failed is the defrost thermostat. It is located on the top of the freezer coil, clipped onto a piece of tubing. It will have 2 wires coming out of it and it is about the diameter of a quarter and about 3/4" tall. To test this part you would need a test meter and enough skill to check if the contacts are closed when the thermostat is frozen withing the specifications stated on the thermostat. I believe yours would close at 25 degrees F and opens at 47 degrees F. Part # 5303918214
