Question about Frigidaire FRS23H5ASB Gallery 22.6 Cubic Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

I don't know what happened to my refrigerator but it is starting to freeze everything. I couldn't change filter because it was stuck, frozen in place. So i had to turn the fridge off so it could thaw out then i was able to remove it. Even after replacing the filter i was unable to get water through because of the ice. Once water started flowing again, i turned the fridge on and raised the temp 1 and everything froze again. I'm not sure what to do to fix this problem but I'm tired of turning the fridge off and on. What should I do.

1 setting on a fridge is as cold as it can get so it will be close to freezing
should be set on 4 or 5
next if it still is freezing then the thermostat is failed and you will need to replace it

SOURCE: Everything freezes in the refrigerator

Your damper that controls the air to the fridge side is stuck open. It can be caused by moisture getting on it and freezing it so it wont close or by a failure in the electrical circuit that controls it. There was a service bulletin from about 3-4 years ago about defective control assemblys. I have replaced several and as far as I know Frigidaire is still replacing some of them for free if they fall under the model and serial numbers that were affected.
You can tell if it is frozen by turning the controls off and thawing the damper at the upper left rear of the fridge section with a hair dryer.. After you have it thawed out, turn the controls back on and you should hear the damper door motor running. Keep your thermometer in it and check it after a while and see if it shuts off before it freezes.
Post back with the complete model and serial numbers and I will try to locate the service bulletin at my shop computer tomorrow.

SOURCE: Water dispenser frozen?

You have a resevoir inside the fridge compartment that needs to be defrosted. It is frozen.

It is usually located behind the crisper drawers.

It is a small plastic tank that is white about 6 inches or so in length and bolted on to the wall behind the crispers.

A hair dryer usually does the trick in about 10 mins.

Regards

Brian

SOURCE: freezer is frozen fridge is warm

Your model is most likely the Profile Artica style. Most times the defrost heater is burned out behind the rear of the freezer wall. Manually defrost and look at the defrost heater to see if burned out. That model possibly has the glass covered defrost heater and will be easy to spot if burned out because the element is inside a glass tube, If you replace the defrost heater also replace the defrost thermostat, Please send me your model number located near floor of the fresh food compartment door seal and kick plate, Thanks Sea Breeze

SOURCE: 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

Water dispenser line frozen, items freezing in fridge side. Freezer constantly running/blowing


Your freezer is what actually cools the refrigerator. The cool air enters from that spot on the top left of the freezer. Make sure that isn't blocked. It's sounds like the thermostat that controls the air flow from the freezer to the refrigerator isn't working or the air flow control device is stuck.

Either way if you can, unload and unplug the unit. This will do to things. First it will reset the circuits that control everything and secondly if the air flow control is frozen thawing out the refrigerator and freezer may free it up.

Past couple days the refrigerator side is freezing everything. turned the setting all the way back and still freezing......dont know if there is a thermostat and if its a DIY fix


Damper door is either broken, stuck open or stuck open and frozen with ice. Damper door is located in the top left corner of the "refrigerator side" of the fridge. Damper door may be concealed by an outer plastic covering usually held in place by a 1/4 inch screw.
Thanks and let me know if that helps,

The refiridgerator is freezing everything, The coils have been cleaned as well as the filters and no matter the "cold" setting, anything put into the refridgerator is frozen.


It might actually be a bad thermostat, or a stuck damper. All the cold are is "produced" in the freezer section, and there are ducts with dampers that lead into the refrigerator section. If these dampers collect some ice on them it will cause them to stick in there current position. If this is the case, and the dampers are open, then it will always be to cold in the refrigerator. Hope this helps

Refrigerator side freezing


kjn, I think what happened here is that the automatic damper assy. is stuck in the open position. This is why everything froze in the refer area. This includes the water filter and cartridge. I would unscrew the filter cover and see if it's frozen in there. If you find the filter frozen, take a hair dryer and go over it lightly until it will unscrew. After that you will have to check to see if the damper is stuck. You should be able to hear it open and close by turning the control on and off. Or get a mirror and hold it at an angle in back to see the gates. Part number for the damper motor is 240440701. Not that hard of a job...Catriver.

Everything in frig is frozen and it won't turn off.


If the compressor is running non-stop then the temp. control is not telling it that it's "cold enough". If the compressor isn't running non-stop then you should look at the air damper (little window) that lets the freezer air into the refer compartment... if it's stuck open then you will always get cold air pushed into the fridge eventually becoming a freezer in itself.

Refrigerator freezes everything even on the lowest setting


Is everything really frozen or just the top shelf stuff? You may have a thermistor (temp sensor) problem if the compressor just runs and runs and runs all the time. Take a glass of water and place a thermometer in it for about 3 hours then take a temp. reading. That will let you know what the real temps are. See if you can cause the compressor to kick off and on by changing the temp settings (go to real low for about 5 minutes then back up to high). Let us know what happens.
