Frs26zgh-frigidaire/ gallery,frig is'nt cooling at all- freezer is cold,but not freezing.


Wow I hate to see that because I have one. You must have a defrost issue. Look on the backside of the freezer for noticable frost. That is an indication of something in the defrost system failing. Defrost system consists of a defrost heater, a defrost heater termination thermostat, and a defrost control. The most likely suspect is the defrost heater termination thermostat. It's job is to shut down the heater when the area is warmed enough to melt frost on the evaporation coils. I fixed one today with a defrost problem just like yours

FREEZER NOT FREEZING PROPERLY


There could be a large list of things that cause the freezer to warm up from the temperature it was before. The most likely reason is you probably have a defrost problem. Defrost heater, defrost thermostat and the defrost control are all things that may have failed. If your model is not a frost free let me know. Look inside freezer for a layer of frost building on the rear wall. If your refrigerator is not defrosting it will be a short time before the fresh food compartment begins to warm. To extend the time your refrigerator and freezer can keep food safe defrost by placing a bucket of hot water inside the freezer and close the door. Please place food from freezer and fresh food compartment into another refrigerator or cold storage area. By keeping doors shut as much as possible the refrigerator and freezer will last up to a week this way before defrosting again, Sea Breeze

I have an active smart fridge freezer. The freezer seems ok but the fridge has stopped working but it doesent get cold. how can it be fixed. It is only 18 months old.


Check fan in the freezer
Also check auto defrost (ice on the freezer coils anot allowing
air to the fridge.)
If so go to appliance parts store to learn the parts to fix auto defrost.
If this was helpful please rate me.

Ice is forming on the back of the freezer and the freezer and refrigerator side aren't cooling at all. Everything is defrosting.


If your able to transfer your food to another ref. your refrigerator needs to be defrost there is a product you can buy and spray in freezer,unplug unit and drain water or empty pan under frigerator,when starting back up make sure nothing is blocking cool vent so air can circulate,don't over pack.this may be why you get cold spots in certain area's.try this thanks

Freezer works but frigerator does not


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp

OR..
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

I work in a medical office and our company just purchased an LG Model # LFC20740SW to accomadate more room to hold our vaccines. Well are ranges for refrigerator and freezer have to be within certain temps...


You need not worry about the defrost cycle. It just warms the external walls of the refrigirator and in the interior it will be about 20-25°C which i guess will be good enough to store vaccines. There is a work around to remove the deffrost thing but if defroster or the fan on the evaporater(inside coil)when the evaporater does not defrost it causes ice build up on it,this does not allow air to flow through it.The result of this is that the freezer will stay cold for awhile but the refrigerator section will not get cold enough.

Warm frigerator


Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.
if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.

Something has stopped the cold air being ducted from freezer side to refrigerator side of things. Possibly duct blocked due to ice build up, evaporator not self defrosting etc. Turn unit off for a few days till it melts and then turn back on. If it was because a door has been left slightly open you will be ok. If for any other reason you will want to have it serviced in the next week or so.

Cold freezer/warm refrigerator


Same problem with Frigidaire Gallery model#GLRT182SAW5 (dated 2002 on back of case)

Vents were blocked with ice. Vents (from top compartment to lower) located behind light. You can check by poking a chopstick up the (2) holes; be careful not to hit fan blades.

Solution:

- took freezer coil cover off in back; checked that defrost heater element was working (marked and rotated the timer in the hole next to light); checked that fan working. Found ice in the vents and defrost drip area. Got it out with hair dryer.

- cleaned compressor coils in back (check fan is rotating; also tweaked some of the compressor tubing bends to make them more smooth - read somewhere about a manufacturing defect ...); blew out drip tube from defroster while down there.

- Set the freezer control to WARM and the refrig control to COLD (THIS SHOULD IMPROVE AIR FLOW FROM TOP TO BOTTOM).

- Put thermometers in top and bottom. Checked that refrigerator cycles (not running continuously). Checked that cold air is coming down from (2) vents behind light.

OK: so far, so good. Lower compartment is 40 or under. Top is under 18.

CONCLUSION: Suspect marginal design. Had problems with another similar model where defroster ice doesn't drain correctly, pools and refreezes. Leading to blocked vents as well as blocked defroster drain and similar problem including dripping water from top to bottom and warm bottom.

MAYBE KEEPING THE FREEZER CONTROL AT WARM GETS AROUND THE PROBLEM?? ANYWAY, ITS WORKING FOR ME FOR NOW !!
