Sounds like the damper isn't opening. Put you hand on the Left wall of the fridge side, at the top. If you feel No Air. Then there is your issue. Bad Damper Motor. Also check the back wall of the freezer, there sould be No Frost. If there is then you have a defrost issue. Not a damper problem. One more thing. Make sure when you shut the fridge door, the light goes out. About a half inch or so before the door is completly shut, the light will go out, if not then thats your issue. Let me know how you make out.

The strip between freezer and refrig become hot then cools off. It's like it is going thru a cycle. We cleaned the coils underneath, but it is still getting hot and then in about 15 minutes, it's...


Hello,

When you cleaned the coil underneath did ya notice that their was air being blown out their by a fan,having clened the coil was a good start but if the fan by the compressor isn't running that divider between the ref/freezer will be hotter than normal( its normally warm and thats ok),so check that the condenser fan is running and that it seems to running at a good speed.

On our side by side, the partition between the sections get really hot. Why?


Refrigerators used to use a low wattage electric heater to warm this area in order to prevent condensation from forming there. Now, in an energy concious world, they use a loop from the condensor so "waste" heat can be used for this purpose. If the refrig has been running a long time, this area can become rather hot.

My refrigerator and freezer working fine,but the door jam between freezer and frig gets very hot can anyone tell me why ?


Either the fan which cools the coils and compressor , behind the rear panel behind the refrig , is not working ( or something is caught in the fan blade ) , or , the coils under the refrig need cleaning badly .

The front of our refrigerator where the doors rest when closed is hot to the touch. Also, it seems to run more frequently. What could this mean?


the area the door rests on is normal to feel warm. it has a heater to keep it from getting condensation around the doors. Some models have a switch on the inside to turn this off. It usually says something like energy saver. As far as it running more frequently, Could be several things that would be hard to diagnose without seeing it.

Ice melts, then refreezes. Rubber Is HOT


Pull the refrig out , and remove the back panel . Is the fan that cools the compressor working ? Is the coil roll clean ? If the fan is not working , then the problem is probably the main control board . Behind the 8"X10" panel , above the compressor area . Remove the cover , and look for a burnt resistor , just to be safe . If this fan does not work , then the coils and the refrigerant line running between the doors , will get very hot .

Freezer cold /refrigator warm . we have a side by side unit a couple of years old the freezer seems to work fine but the refrigator is warm .It don,t seem to make any funny noises and the back is clean


When the compressor is running, if the fan by the compressor and the fan inside the freezer are both running, and there is no frost on the back wall of the freezer (if there was frost would indicate a defrost issue) then check the air dampener. It is located at the very top left back side of the fresh food section. If it is not opening up, no air will flow from the freezer compartment (where all the cooling takes place) into the refrigerator section.

WARM REFRIGERATOR


Check the freezer side back wall, do you see Ice forming on that wall?

If so you have a defrost issue. Also check to make sure you fan in the freezer side is running. If not, than cold air from the freezer cannot make it to the fresh food side.

I am factory authorized for Frigidaire Appliances and am confident I can assist you in this repair.

Refrigerator/Freezer not cooling


check freezer for frost build up and if fan blowing, check condenser make sure clean, and fan blowing, by compressor Make sure compressor is running and not shutting off on overload.. u said comp. hot.. should be warm... Not hot check vents in refrig. make sure no blockage, freezer control should be in the middle setting, you can try turning that to Warmer freezer allowing MORE air to refrigertor side.
