Question about Frigidaire FRS26R4A Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Water in the frig and possible overheating

For the past week we notice the frig side was freezing the food. So we turned off the frig, thinking there was some ice build up somewhere. Fixed the problem but now we have water on the frig shelves. Then we noticed that if you try to get water, then water would spray out from the filter. So we stopped using that feature. Now I noticed that the 'wall' that divides the frig from the freezer is hot. What do I do now???

Clean the coils and check to see if the condensor fan is working. Call your local dealer and ask them to order you new o-rings for the filter mount to fix the leak from the filter.

My Maytag side by side refrigerator [mod. #MSD2656KES, Serial #50518503JL] is freezing everything on the frig side on the two top shelves. Coils have been cleaned. Temp set:Freez=3, Frig=2. One week ago...


I have this same refrigerator, also purchased in 2006. Same exact problem. Fridge freezes, starting actually in the water line, you will notice water on door does not work, then top two shelves start to freeze. Lasts for a few days, then prob does not happen again for 6 months almost to the day. I've had this problem for almost 3 years!!! My service tech said to buy another, glitch in this system he can't figure out. Replaced damper x2, control board, and thermostat x2. Not sure what else to do. I hate the thought of more food lost to spoilage!

If the freezer is staying cold it sounds like a defrost system problem. A bad timer, heater or thermostat can cause frost to build up on the coils and block air flow to the refrig side. Check out ACMEHowTo.com for troubleshooting the defroster problem.
There is a small duct between the freezer and refrigerator side if this is blocked the frig side won't cool.

Food freezing in refrigerator and water dripping


The problem with the water is that the drain tube is plugged. The easiest way to fix this and to save money is to unplugg the refrigerator and leave the doors open all day. This will thaw out the drain tube without a service technician coming out. That will fix that problem. With it freezing the food on the where its not supposed, This may be a bad cold control. But try unplugging the unit for a day with the doors open and this may fix both problems. (i know it will fix the water issue)
