Frigidaire Gallery FRS26ZGEB - 12 years old

Hi,
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:
218169802 HEATER-DEFROST
5303917954 THERMOSTAT-DEFROST
5303917954 TIMER-DEFROST

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.

Your refrigerator is made by frigidaire it sounds like your damper is opening up if your freezer cold and the fresh food compartment isn't.

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 it's only a year old then the compressor/sealed system is under warranty. You should have a 5 year warranty. Go to www.frigidaire.com and request service.
