Check the freezer for frost on its back wall. The refrigerator gets the cold air for cooling from the freezer section. If you have frost on the back wall you have a problem in the defrost circuit. There are three parts involved in the defrost of the coil. Heaters, thermostat or defrost thermostat, and timing device. If your model has a mechanical timer you can located it and rotate the clutch head screw Clockwise very SLOWLY until you hear one click. This puts the freezer into the defrost mode. After 30 minutes if the defrost takes place and the refrigeration does not restart, rotate the clutch head screw a little more and it will start. This tells you the timer is the problem. If it does restart by itself and defrost does not take place your problem is in the heater of defrost termination thermostat. The timer is generally located near the controls for the temperature.

Fridgidare model number FRS26R2AWI , My Refidgirator side is working fine but the Freezer side is warm I took off the the freezer Coyle cover in the back of the freezer and they are warm any ideas ?


This does not make any sense because the fridge section gets cold air from the freezer via the damper mechanism that allows air into that compartment. The usual complaint is that the freezer is not that cold and the refrigerator is warm.
If your evaporator behind rear freezer panel is covered with ice the issue is with the defrost mechanism/heater element.

If compressor is always running and the entire evaporator is not nice and cold then you may be low on refrigerant.

Fridge section of fridge freezer not cold despite turning thermostat to max. Freezer section appears to be working fine.


Make sure that if it has a "colder" knob in the freezer section that it is not set all the
way over to coldest. This blocks all cold air entering the lower compartment when
set this way. It actually has been eliminated on some models.

Also you may have ice buildup in the stack assembly that feeds
the lower compartment or even a frozen upper compartment behind the back
panel of the freezer limiting air flow to the lower compartment. Make sure to unplug unit if service is necessary in these areas. I hope this is helpful.

Top half fridge not cold freezer department fine


I had the same problem; the top fridge compartment was warming up to 14C while the freezer compartment was starting to defrost (frozen stuff was starting to become soft. I took the rear wall off the freezer compartment and found it all iced up. I defrosted it with a blower heater then powered it back up. It all worked fine for a month when the same thing happened. I figured that the defrost cycle wasn't working. I located the defrost timer on the rear right-side of the fridge. I rotated it several times and found that the fridge was turning on and off. I rotated it until the fridge turned off. I waited 5 minutes then stuck my head into the freezer compartment and felt the rear wall at the bottom where he drain is; it felt warm so I guessed the defrost heater element was ok. I ordered a defrost timer and installed it. I haven't had a problem since.

FRIDGE NOT WORKING


Most side by side and other models of refrigerator freezer combinations are of one basic design. The freezer section does the cooling for both compartments. The refrigerator section gets it cold air from the freezer compartment. Therefore check for frost on the back wall of the freezer compartment. If frost is present there you have a defrost problem and it is cutting off the air that cools the refrigerator section.

I think this problem may already be resolved in some manor because of the date of post. Posts should expire after an unreasonable time period.
