Have you checked the condenser area ? for blockage of dirt remove the front toe kick and make sure the condenser coil is clean also open the back panel and check that the condenser fan motor is running and the compresser is as well check that and let me know

Frigidaire refrigerator with a broken freezer


He is correct. The temp in the refrig controls how often and for how long the refrig runs. Lets say the temp in your garage is 34 degrees, and you have your refrig set to 36 degrees: The refrig will never run, the fresh foods section will cool to 34, and the freezer will warm to 34. Even if the temp is 45 in the garage and you set the fresh foods to be 33, the refrig will not need to run long enough and often enough to keep the freezer temp cold enough. You will most likely need to have the ambient room temp at least 55 degrees to get satisfactory refrigerator performance. Insulating the refrig will not help. (by the way, outdoor beverage vending machines use an internal heater in cold weather to prevent liquid beverages inside from freezing,..... so using that info, you could put a low wattage heater in your refrig to make your refrig run enough to make the freezer section work. The %&#* with that, just move it into the house!)

Refrig. is about 4-5 years old and regrig side stop getting cold then the freezer followed suit-not getting cold. what should i do


Look inside the freezer on the back wall. If there is ice on the back wall the defrost heater and defrost thermostat are the usual suspects. They are both in the freezer behind the back panel.
Look for a deformed defrost thermostat. The glass heater will look burned. Both can be checked with a meter set for continuity. No continuity equals a bad part. Remove the wires from the parts before checking or a false reading will occur.

GSS25PGMF FREEZER NOT WORKING. This morning when I opened the freezer door, everything was defrosted. The ice tray was half water. Their was frost on the inside back of the refrig. The regrig side...


You have a defrost problem. You can defrost the unit down by removing the back panel and get a hair dryer and go back and forth over the defrost. Make sure that you don't get any of the coils too hot or you'll destroy your unit. But you'll need a meter to check which part or parts are bad. Do you have a meter? But you will either need a defrost timer, defrost heater or a defrost themostat. But you'll have to have a meter to OHM out the defrost heater. If your unit beeps then you'll need to replace the defrost timer and defrost themostat. If the heater checks bad then you'll need to replace only the defrost heater.

ED25PQDW01 side by side refrig -freezer is inconsistent. Need to have full cold to maintain freezer temp. cleaned coils, but still an issue.


Do you see a light coat of frost in freezer section about 12 inches up (defrost problem indication) ? Has the icemaker slowed down a bit in ice production ? What is the refrigerator control set on ? When you turn the freezer up completely , it cuts off the cold air flow which cools the refrig section . If refrig control is set mid way , turn it up higher , so refrig will run longer , but lower the freezer setting so some cold air will enter the refrig section . Also check to see if the freezer fan is working .

Refrig cooling


Sounds like the evaporator fan is not working. Check to see if you can hear the fan running in the freezer. If not running, try removing the panel in the back of the inside freezer and manually spin the fan blade . This sometimes works.

Refrig/Freezer not cooling


"compressor not functioning". You Probably need a New Compressor. I have a Family Member whos Refrig/Freezer Compressor had to be replaced under Warranty when it was only 2 years Old.
