Question about Frigidaire FRS26R4A Side by Side Refrigerator
When you open Frig door, you couldn't touch the frame with out getting burn and frig not cooling well. I removed the back cover the big round black tank in far left was hot enough to fry an egg. I noticed the fan was not spining at all and I assume this fan kicks on and off with some sought of thermal switch. I disconnect the fan and put a multimeter on the power side and was getting normal voltage (115-120), then I did an ohm check on the fan it self on the two power leads and it read open (shorted) and so I assume this is why the frig is overheating. LIke a car radiator, it the coil and condensor I suspect need the fan to draw air to assist in cooling. I am only guessing here, any help would be appreciated as I plan on getting new fan, but don't know how to remove it.
Had the same problem..door frame was hot to touch etc..
we checked the fan and there was dead mouse stuck in it..
my husband removed the mouse and luckily the fan kicked right back on

Also clean the coils underneath the unit as far as the fan (condenser ) you can put a house fan on the back blowing to cool the compresser until you get a replacement. That fan runs anytime the compresser runs
