Question about Frigidaire FRS3R5EMB Side by Side Refrigerator
The freezer compartment is (logically) favored for cooling. There is a fan, normally between the back of the freezer compartment and the outside sheet metal that circulates the cooled air from the hidden coils to the refrigerator compartment.
When you hear the compressor is running, look for vents in the back of the refrigerator side and hold some wet fingers in front of these. Under normal circumstances, there should be an easily noticeable flow of air coming from these vents that represents the fridge's share of the cooled air. If there is none or is very little flow, the fan has either slowed (sticky sleeve bearings) or the fan has stopped completely. This isn't a dangerous problem since all modern electric motors are 'impedance protected' meaning that if the motor cannot turn, it still will not get any more than hot, it won't catch fire as they once would.
