Check the evaporator fan motor, behind the back wall of the freezer. If that is turning check if the damper is opening, top lt of the refrigerator compartment. I hope this helps you.

    you should be able to hear it if you turn the unit off and back on, you can also use a small mirror to see if it opens.

I have a side by side fridge/freezer. Occationally the freezer side warms up and the fridge side starts icing. It happens sporatically. It is a hotpoint model hsm25gftasa. Tried giving it more air


The defrost timer also turns on heater strips buried behind the metal parts that the door gaskets touch. It may be you're just witnessing the defrost cycle. If you have lost power for a time, that affects the clock time of day the defrost cycle starts. I'd look at the defrost timer and reset the time.

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.

Cleaned the condenser coils which were dusty but not severely so. Checked the evaporator coils which were NOT iced. Reset the fridge to coldest setting and freezer to #5 (mid range of temperature) and waited a full 36 hours. Fridge temp is 40 F and freezer is about 0F. Not sure what is different except coldest setting on fridge. Warm weather is here but not warm enough to require AC. Temps in late afternoon in house about 77-80F. Any thoughts are appreciated because I suspect this problem is not completely resolved.

Frigidaire FRT18HB5DW2 fridge not cooling


Sounds like an air flow problem to the lower unit. Take the sheetmetal or plastic rear cover off the freezer back wall and make sure the coils are frosted up good and even but NOT a block of ice inches thick (air needs to circulate and a blocked coil won't let air move over it efficiently). Make sure the fan is running to move the air around. In the fridge area make sure the air dampers are letting the cold air from the freezer down to the fridge compartment. Depending on what you find will determine the next steps so let us know.

Freezer/fridge won't get cold enough


Madezmom, you have a defrost issue. If your model starts with 106 you more than likley have a bad defrost bi-metal, I will attach a picture of bad one. This sits on the evaporator in the freezer section behind the panel. You will have to remove the shelves and remove the back panel. Defrost the evaporator completely. The part number for the bi-metal is 2196155. See if yours is bulged like the one in the attached photo. If so, that's your problem..Catriver..post back.
