Frigidaire PLHS267ZA Side by Side

I just got this fridge a few days ago (it is just a year old) when I plugged it in, it was running for a few min, I noticed a buring smell coming from the fridge side.. after inspecting it I noticed that where the top light is in the fridge the plastic above (the top inside of the fridge) is burnt. I took the light bulb out and the smell went away within a few min. I have checked to make sure it is the right bulb and wattage (it is) any idea's in why and how to fix this problem?? many thanks

FRS26R4CB0-Freezer not freezing and Fridge not getting Cool


Hi Candi,

I don't know this model but most friges are the same,
Check on the bottom back, there should be a radiator with a small fan
installed.

If the fan is not working this maybe your problem,
It is not colling the gas.


You also may have a gas leak or the gas compressor is not working
or starting to work because of a faulty capcacitor.

PLHS267ZA is leaking water from the bottom (freezer side)


I would look under the fridge for a drip pan that might be full, so when it defrost it overflows the pan and runs on the floor. If not that you must have a blockage somewhere in the drain line that runs to the drip pan. Take out the shelves and take off the plastic panels to access the drain and drain line, pour some warm water down the drain to unplug it.

Look on the backside of the fridge for a small shutoff valve which may be turned off. Also, if your fridge has provisions for a filter, check for a clogged or missing filter. In either case, you will have to replace the filter.

Frigidaire plht189sska top freezer fridge problem. Freezer is cold, fridge is warm. About a month ago, had the problem of frost build up in freezer, water pooling under veggie bins, warm fridge. ...


If the defrost heating element, defrost timer or evaporater fan weren't working, you'd develop a block of ice on the evaporator. Is the compressor running? If it is, it might have bad valves from the frost buildup scenario. Liquid refrigerant could have gotten to the suction valves. The sealed system should have a five year warranty. Might be time to call a pro

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.
