Why on my model FRS6LR5EW3 freezer side is working maintains ice but fresh food side is not working, no light, no fan??

Good Morning Friend,

I understand the freezer portion is working on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS6LR5EW3, but your refrigerator does not seem to be as cool as it should, due to the fan not working. I also see that the light is not working, even after changing it out. Please try resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and see if the light is on. Also, listen for the fan to run and give the refrigerator portion of your appliance 24 hours to stabilize at the set temperatures. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

No power and no light in the fresh food compartment

Start with a light switch. Might need a new board too.

Light does not come on when you open door

Test your 40 watt light bulb in another fixture if the light bulb is OK then unplug the refrigerator and open fresh food compartment and pry out the light switch. Test for continuity HERE For some reason your model shows an additional light switch on the control panel located inside the fresh food compartment above top shelf. Try switching the ligh switch on from there.

Frigidaire side-by-side model GHSC39EJPWO. Light in frig don't work, tried changing bulbs; didn't help. I cannot find the light switch - where is it located? I have examined everywhere!

I too am very perplexed by that i have looked at the parts breakdown and see a switch for the freezer in the side wall but no switch for the fresh food section. I have included the link for the parts breakdown i was looking at, the freezer light switch is item# 14A

Good luck

Light wont shut off, heats up to 88 degrees

Most times this is a defective fresh food section door light switch located in this photo as location number 609. Click Here=> PSC23NSTESS Fresh Food Section I am going to send you the service manual for your model and the information that explains how to change the switch is on page 19. If you do not already have the new free Adoobe Reader installed on your computer click here=> Adobe Reader X (10.1) Just make sure to uncheck the items not needed during the download. There also could be another problem related to the mother board that can also keep the light on while door is close but not likely. The part number for the light swirch is=> WR23X10175 Light Switch Information on how to test the switch is also on that page. Until we have repaired the problem please unplug and remove the lights because this heat will keep the refrigerator running and possibly melt the plastic housing holding the bulbs.

Problem with fresh food side of my refrigerator freezer

The bulbs dim glow is a worry, sounds like not enough voltage is getting there. If you are comfortable with a multimeter, check what the voltage is at the bulb socket. If you have a low voltage issue due to say the transformer not working properly then the fan will also have low voltage (or no voltage). No power, no fan, no cooling. I'd suspect there are voltage issues with that transformer, especially since it's a 240 VAC model. A transformer typically steps down the 240 volts to 120 volts for light bulbs and maybe even the fans (or the whole refer). The repair man may be correct in that the transformer is built in to a circuit board but it COULD be a stand alone transformer.

Fresh food compartment not cold, light is lit when door closed

Engwah, is this the correct model number or does it start with PSS. The light should do just the opposite, off when the door is closed and on when the door is open. This could be part of the non cool problem. If this model has the mother board wich controls the refrigerator it is very possible that the defective fan motor has damaged the motherboard. This is very common in GE refrigerators. The technician will have to run some tests on the board to eliminate back.
