Frig side by side model glrs267zcq1 freezer cool but not frozen no ice

Hello friend, thanks for your post!
I see your Frigidaire refrigerator is not freezing in the freezer section but keeping your fresh food side cool. Some possibilities could be your refrigerator stuck in defrost mode, the control panel, or sealed system. I would recommend performing a reset on your appliance which would be flipping your household circuit breaker off for ten minutes. If that does not resolve your issue I would seek assistance from a professional to properly diagnose and repair your appliance. -Matt

Frigidaire refrigerator/freezer side by side not kicking on. Both freezer and refrigerator not cooling.

If the unit is not cooling in either section of the appliance, you are experiencing some form of sealed system issue. This can include the compressor not working correctly, the evaporator fan not turning, or even coolant in the lines not at the correct levels to properly cool. If the compressor is running, humming, or even a little warm then that is typically normal. However if the compressor is running hot, then it is over working and the issue could be before the compressor in the evap fan, coil or coolant lines. Unless the unit is displaying an error code, often alpha-numeric, then you would need to contact your manufacturer and then a professional to move forward accurately.

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.

This is usually caused by a clogged defrost drain. Many times vents between fridge and freezer sections are clogged with ice. Unplug the unit for 24 hours then plugin, and everything should work out.Also a faulty thermostat and Clogged/dirty evaporator coils (underneath in newer models, on back in older models) are the most probable reasons.Also All of the cooling in refrigerators is normally done in the freezer compartment. A fan circulates cold air from the freezer into the refrigerator compartment to cool it. Most likely this fan has quit working.

My Kenmore Model No. 10656596500 is having two problems that I can't seem to fix. The freezer is very cold and small ice crystals are located all over the place. The fridge side is not as cold as it used...

I would remove your freezer panel and see if the evaporator is blocked by ice..this causes air not to flow to refrigerator side...this is how they work..they also auto defrost this evap and if it skips a defrost. the end result is fresh food section not cold....also, make sure the evap fan is running....

Gibson/Frigidaire GRS20ZRH - Refrigerator section does not cool. Freezer cools OK. Water and ice dispenser is OK. Model is a side by side. Underneath coil/compressor section is clean. Please advise....

Check your fan that goes from the freezer to the refrigerator. It is probably faulty. If not then check your defrost timer.
I hope this helps

Freezer works great, but refrigeration section stopped working

Check the door seals on fridge and freezer to make sure there are NO leaks.
Try manually adjusting air flap that controls air from freezer to fridge, the flap may be frozen or the actuator that controls the flap may be faulty.

Doesn't cool fresh food

It´s probably overloaded. Any refrigerator has a specific cooling capacity eg x Kg/24hours. you must check that capacity and charge acording to that.
