Question about Frigidaire FRS26ZSG
Ideas? how much should it likely cost to fix?
I just recently had this same problem. Check the back of the freezer, behind the white metal cover and see if the coils are frosted over. Sometimes you can just look through the slots to see if there is a large collection of frost.
If so, open the freezer door and look down to the extreme lower left on the front of the freezer. There will be a small tube with slots in it. Turn it clockwise until it clicks. This is the defrost timer. Wait a minute and see if you see steam or hear sizzling noises at the back of the freezer. If so, then your defrost element is indeed working.
The unit will defrost for about 25 minutes and it should be fine after that. If it does not defrost, then chances are your defrost heater element might be bad.
If the frost re-appears several days later then your defrost thermostat is bad and needs to be replaced (about $15), (www.sears.com/partsdirect) is one of the many places you can get another.
In my case, after the manual defrost the problem did not return. The ice-over was most likely cause by one of my kids leaving the freezer door ajar allowing moist air into the freezer.

Sounds like you may have a defrost problem. Check your freezer section for frost buildup on the back wall of your freezer. I have no idea what service rates are in your area. It should be much more reasonable to repair than to replace. Parts may run between 15-50 dollars depending on the nature of which part(s) are affected.
