Freezer coil is plugging up with frost, Your problem is defrost timer or heater related. If it is the timer you can located the timer and rotate the Clutch screw for the timer, turn it very slowly Clockwise until you hear one click. The compressor will shut off and the defrost heaters will turn on. Waite about 25-30 minutes and if the refrigerator does not restart (Normal time would be 18-22 minutes) rotate the screw again clockwise small amount and it will start cooling. Observe the drain pan for defrost water. If the refrigerator restarted (18-22 minutes) and no water is in the drain pan you problem is defrost heaters. If after the 25-30 minutes the refrigerator did not restart on its own and water is in the drain pan your problem is the defrost timer.

The fresh food compartment on my PLHS267za fridge is freezing. Have tried turning the temp all the way down and it is still freezing. What could the problem be?


damper stuck open by the fresh food thermostat. the unit doesnt know that it is cold enough so the damper stays open letting cold air from the freezer to continue to travle over.

Frigidaire Gallery refrigerator, evaporator fan not running


As insignificant as it may seem, that evap fan motor is as important as petrol in a car. That fan controls the fridge cooling on many fridges and circulation in tha freezer compartment. Replace it with the correct one and you should see a functional fridge/ freezer again. Note, i wouldnt run unit without it for long, as condensig temperatures run high and compressors dont last long.

MY FRIGIDARE MODEL FRS23ZTJ IS NOT WORKING RIGHT. THE REFRIGERATOR IS NOT COOLING. THE FREEZER SEEMS FINE. WHAT DO I DO NOW?


check the damper door located between the freezer and refrige compartments,it may be iced up in the closed position and can't let cold air in from the freezer,it may be covered behind a plastic cover or diverter,you may feel some cold air in this area moving if its open part way,if its iced up,use a hair dryer and defrost it then adjust the cold control in the refrige and see if the damper door opens and closes with adjustment of this control

After emptying the ice bin on 2 year old side frigidaire, the freezer is OK, but the fresh food side has stopped cooling. Any ideas?


check that the fan in the freezer is running,it circulates the cold air,if it isclose freezer door,open refrig. door lookto the upper left you will see where the cold air enters the refrig compartment and should fill air coming thruough vent this is a motorized unit and they sometimes fail,also check the return air hole located at bottomof refrig.sometimes get blocked by plastic bags etc

The guide that funnels the water into the ice maker needs to be replaced. The cause of your problem is that water is leaking into the back, freezing there, and blocking the air flow. Mine sounded like an idling semi truck with engine problems.

It sure sounds like a compressor problem to me. The buzzing sound is the compressor trying to start followed by a click which would be the overload protector tripping.

Coil freeze up.


sounds like you have a problem with the defrost timer. usually they are at the back on the bottom of the fridge and have a little nob that is supposed to turn as a clock.

mark it and come back later to see if the timer moves, if not then there is your problem

Refrigidare model # plhs267za


sounds like the air damper control for refrig is freezing in the open positon. not a really consumer freindly repair,(dropping side control panel checking damper door for ice build up, removing ice and applying a silicone lubricant(vasiline) to prevent further freezing of air damper motor. sounds easy enoug but that panel is real tricky to drop and mount back in.
