I think you mean that milk freezes, etc.

Probably bad thermocouple. In the refrigerators I'm familiar with, there is a thermocouple thermostat in the freezer. There is no measuring of refrigerator temperature; it just gets a portion of the cold freezer air.

If the thermostat is bad, then ice cream should be rock hard too, for it never quits cooling except on defrost cycle, three times per day.

SOURCE: Candy Fridge - The freezer part is not cold enough, fridge ok!

A couple of things to check-
- Is the condensor cooling fan running? This will be located to push air through the external cooling coils, wherever they are located.
- Does the auto-defrost timer work? It may have failed and stayed in a position that has left the heating elements (for defrosting) turned on.
- Does it seem to be running way too long and not turning off as it once did? This could indicate either a loss of coolant (would need recharge and leak detection) or the compressor is reaching its end of life. If the latter is the problem, expect a cost of $200-$400 US.

FRS26R4CB0-Freezer not freezing and Fridge not getting Cool


Hi Candi,

I don't know this model but most friges are the same,
Check on the bottom back, there should be a radiator with a small fan
installed.

If the fan is not working this maybe your problem,
It is not colling the gas.


You also may have a gas leak or the gas compressor is not working
or starting to work because of a faulty capcacitor.

Fridge not cooling.


Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------

Why is my fridge freezing up in my candy fridge freezer


Hello there,
The reason your fridge is freezing up is simply because there is a problem with the defrost unit of the refrigerator. The defrost thermostat simply could have gone bad and therefore is not getting the defrost heater to start work.
Have the defrost thermostat tested and replaced once found faulty.
Hope this was of help to you. All the best Elect_Comp
