Question about Frigidaire FRS6R5ESB

1 Answer

The refrigerator quit getting cold a couple days ago, the cold air quit coming from the freezer side to the refrigerator. Although the freezer is cool, things like the ice cream are thawing. We took the cover off the coils to find that they had a lot of ice build up, we turned the freezer & fridge off for ice to melt. The fridge & freezer worked again for 3 days, last night the fridge quit getting cold again, same thing, we discovered that the coils are iced over, what can be causing this. We turned off the freezer and fridge over night, turned it back on this morning, it cooled for a couple hours then stopped again.

Could be that the freezer is icing up stopping the air flow coming up into your fridge, try switching it off for at least 12 hours with the freezer door open.

If the coolant from the freezer compartment leaked, will the refrigerator still work (stay cold)? I know the freezer won't work. thanks.


There is only one coolant circuit for a refrigerator. There is a fan that circulates the cold air from the freezer side and pushes it through the refrigerator side and that's how that gets cold. So if all or some of your refrigerent leaked out then the refrigerator will have to be repaired by a qualified technician if you still want to use it.

I can smell items in my freezer when I open the door of the fridg


Good day,
All cooling in a refrigerator, be it the freezer section, or the fresh food section is performed by the freezer.
The freezer takes care of itself, but also by the function of the fan motor in the freezer, blows a limited amount of the freezer air into the fresh food compartment to cool it to the nominal 37 degrees.

The odor in the freezer is disguised by the extremely cold air, and is not apparent. But that odor when raised to 35 or 40 degrees will become noticeable.
As well, the freezer compartment rises to 30 degrees plus when going thru it's automatic defrost cycle, which occures for approx. 30 minutes once or twice a day, adding to the problem.
Sealing the packages is probably the only real answer.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My freezer stopped freezing a couple of days ago,coil frozen up i defrosted it and now no air is blowing into refrigerator part both freezer and refrigerator are not cold


if the fan is not running then most likely the defrost stat has failed but you should also check the fan for continuity if you have continuity the fan should be ok you can find a defrost stat on parts advantage.com

REFRIGERATOR AND FREEZER UPPER HALF NOT COLD


If you live in a humid area, I'll bet ice buildup is screwing with the air flow. I have a similar, but less intense problem. So in my case, simply unplugging the fridge and letting all the hidden internal ice melt solves it for several months. GE sells a "moisture kit" which I refuse to buy, since it's $340! Plus, I doubt it will fix anything. Good luck!

Do you have ice build up on the back wall in the freezer? If so you have whats called a defrost problem. (can be timmer, adc, heating element or thermostat)... All cold air in you fridge side come from the freezer, therefore if you have ice build up behind back wall in freezer it is blocking air flow....
