Question about Frigidaire Refrigerators

1 Answer

We have a frigidaire mini fridge with the freezer on top. In the last week it has quit cooling properly. I've checked the coils for dust and they are clean. We haven't had it quite a year so if all else fails we will exchange it. Any suggestions?

Frigidaire frs26lh5dso freezer works great, fridge side is warm.


make sure door to refrigerator is all the way up, so when it is closed it turns the cooling part on. I have to check mine all the time and screw it up if it's down, which is quite often. Mine is a side by side and I just make sure it's even with the top of refrigerator and even with the freezer door.

Frigidaire frs26r4 fan not working


So if your voltage changes with the fan plugged in, it would seem that your fan is blown and you need a replacement. This fan is needed to properly cool the top. You should be able to order the part directly from Frigidaire or there are many online sites to choose from. If you need help with this, let me know or if you have any other questions, just ask, otherwise, good luck

American fridge/freezer - fridge stopped cooling, freezer side ok


Have you pulled out the refrigerator and cleaned or used a vacum cleaner to get out the dirt and dust off the back of the coils, or if the coils are underneath, you need to get an inexpensive appliance brush for fridge, and clean the coils under the fridge, pull off the panel on the front bottom of the fridge, get a flash light and look to see if the coils are covered in dust....may just need to vacum and use appliance brush underneath...this should be done at least one a year, you will notice your fridge running much better and cooling back to normal.......hope this helps......

It is actually FRT21INLHW4, but i can find no info...freezer not cold enough and fridge last week froze some food...also seem to run alot! help!


The cooling coils are normally located around the freezer with the refrigerator being cooled via cold air circulating from the freezer to the refrigerator. If that concealed fan has failed, the mere fact that cold air falls might explain why the lower compartment is getting the hog's share of the cooling.
You should be able to see vents in the rear of the fridge; hold your hand (wet might be better) in front of those vents. You should be able to feel a flow of air into the fridge. If you don't, the fan may have failed.
Try Sears parts section to see if your unit is listed; they often have repair parts for many brands and models, and even more important, an illustration of your model which could guide you on how to access the fan for replacement.
Another possibility is the failure of the defrost timer that controls a heating coil also located near the freezer. If your defrost heater is staying on because the timer has failed, it could cause the situation you have. The timer is often located behind the grill at the bottom of the unit. Some of them have a **** to turn the timer mechanism manually. You can mark the protruding shaft position with a piece of tape or white-out to monitor if it is still running at all.
With the grill removed, try to remove as much of the dust bunnies from the coils as possible since this prevents the lower fan from getting air onto the coils to disperse the heat from the coils.

Freezer works, fridge not cooling but water was leaking from under fridge a few weeks ago, could not find source . Small compact frigidaire unit for dorm room.


Most if not all fridges under $2000 only use a single compressor meaning the refrigeration is provided by venting the freezer air into the compartment. Water under the unit likely indicates the fridge is not properly sealing and moisture is condensing on the cold coils and dripping.
