Question about Frigidaire FRS26R4A Side by Side Refrigerator
Yesterday the fridge stop getting cold (about 62 degrees). The freezer is working fine. I cleaned the back of the unit to make sure the vents were clean. Any ideas? What should I hear if it starts to work?
You have a defrost problem or damper problem or evapator fan
1) Check the fan in the freezer is running
2) defrost the freezer (leave unpluged with door open for 24 to 48 hrs or untill it stops leaking water...
3) check the damper make sure it is opening and cold air is blowing
How you need to repair what defrost part failed
The defrost systems is:
Start with the timer. It is just under the front kick plate. there is a knob you can turn it slowly.until it clicks off the compressor. then open the freezer and listen . You should hear the heater come on .. it will sizzle when it comes on ...
You will have to remove the back panel of the freezer to check the heater for and thermostat for continuity. Heater are the lease likely part to go bad... I always change thermostat and timers together.
let me know if this helps or we can chat if you need more help.
