Frigidaire Refrigerator not cooling

Our electrolux Frididaire Top Mount Model # FRT21LR7AW1 that we purchased 6.5 yrs ago is not working. The freezer is cooling fine but the bottom compartment is 65 degrees. We have vaccumed out underneath and nothing is blocking the air vents, however only 1 of the air vents in the back of the fridge is blowing cool air.

Please help!!!

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/control board
  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.

My frigidaire refrigerator does not seem to cool no freeze


If you have a sxs refrigerator then you have an issue with the damper door/switch not letting cool air from the freezer section to the refrigerator section. If you have a top mount freezer refrigerator unit, then you have a problem with the top venting system from the cabinet's ceiling.

Frigidaire 16.5cu top mount not cooling fridge. freezer is froze


The baffle that opens to allow cooling into the refrigerator may be blocked, broken or mis wired. These units work by just cooling the freezer and then blowing some cold air into the refrigerator whenever the fridge thermostat calls for it. The fridge's thermostat is trying to cool the refrigerator but something is preventing the cool air from getting to the refrigeration part, that's why it's freezing up the freezer

If the model FRT18IS6CQG is correct your refrigerator has a defrost thermostat inside the fresh food section where the controls are. Need you to turn it clockwise until the refrigerator stops running. This puts the fridge in manual defrost. About 20 minutes later it should come back on without your help. If not we need to replace the timer. Let me know Sea Breeze

I feel sure you will find the compressor start relay is probably bad unless it is a Frigidaire manufactured refrigerator. If it is a Frigidaire then if may very well be a bad compressor.
I hope I have helped, supertechks
