Frigidaire Side by Side model........freezer not working

We have a year old side by side refrigerator and the freezer part is not freezing.  It won't make ice and everything is slowly melting.  We turned the settings up and nothing improved.  The refrigerator side is fine.  Can someone please help!!!!

There is most always an adjustment that diverts part of the cooled air into the refrigerator and a fan to ensure that the air circulates.
This adjustment is generally limited so that the freezer gets the lion's share of cooling.
It sounds as if the circulating fan has failed, or, (very unlikely) the path between the two is somehow blocked.

FRS26R4CB0-Freezer not freezing and Fridge not getting Cool

Hi Candi,

I don't know this model but most friges are the same,
Check on the bottom back, there should be a radiator with a small fan

If the fan is not working this maybe your problem,
It is not colling the gas.

You also may have a gas leak or the gas compressor is not working
or starting to work because of a faulty capcacitor.

also check defrost timer,defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Ice in the bottom of frigidaire side by side frost proof freezer

take all the bottom shelves and baskets out of the freezer. look at the back wall of the freezer. youll see a block of ice in a metal pan looking part at the bottom of the rear panel. there is a hole in the bottom of that pan. thats the defrost drain. its clogged. use a hair dryer to get all the ice out then use hot water to flush out the drain hole.

Food stays frozen regardless of temperature setting

It is possible it has a bad thermostat but most likely cause would be a bad damper motor.  It is the vent inside the fridge that opens and closes, based on temp. setting, to allow cold air from the freezer into the fridge section.
