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.

How to change the temp in a frigidaire galaxy refrigerator


Units will vary give or take a few degrees from the control panel display. Keep in mind once you change the temperature it will take up to 10-12 hours to stabilize and reach that temperature. If the unit is not cool, even at the bottom of the refrigeration portion (where the coolest air will be found) then contact a professional to diagnose the control pane and board.

Frig keeps freezing even though it is turned down completely


First check that all the cooling tubes are open between the freezer to refrigerator. If one plugs up, then all the cold is focused on one spot in the refrigerator. If that isn't the problem, then replace the refrigerator thermostat.

Refigerator is freezing food


Hi, this problem is going to be with the running thermostat. It has gone bad and stays open which in turn will keep the compressor running continually. It can normally be located in the control panel inside the fridge. Locate the thermostat and replace it. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!!

The refrigerator isn


If you allow the refrigerator to completely defrost by unplugging it and leaving the doors open, the coils (which are hidden from view usually behind the back interior wall) will allow air to flow around them once again ( after the heavy ice buildup melts away ) It usually drains down into a pan under the refrigerator . This is what contols the temp in the cold portion of the refrigerator. Likely the defrost coils have quit working. This is a common problem and requires a new defrost coil be installed to keep the ice from building up on the coils.

Items sometimes freeze on refrigerator side of unit - model GSS25LGMA


It is most likely a bad damper motor.  This is where the cool air comes out into the fridge section.  On this model it is a fairly common problem and comes a whole assembly.  The part # is WR49X10091 and will cost anywhere from $100 to $122.  Knowing this model I would bet this is your problem.  If the damper is bad and stuck open cold air will just keep blowing in.  It is suppose to open and close based on the temp setting.  Let me know if you have any other questions.
