Question about Frigidaire FRS26R4A Side by Side Refrigerator
The problem we are having is the refrigerator will not cool below 60 degrees and the freezer not below 40 degrees.F. Also,on the freezer side, ice is accumulating on the back wall at the approximate location where the defrost heater is shown to be located. Unit is only 1.5 years old; coils are clean; condenser fan and compressor are running ok. The problem started about 3 days ago, and seemed to gradually worsen each day. Any ideas and help would be appreciated. P.S. We have heard that there have been problems with the automatic defrost control kit assemblies on these models. This unit only came with a 1 year warranty, which is now out.

Sounds like a defrost problem or a plugged drain... to get it to work temporary defrost the freezer. Unplug the refrigerator, open the door and get a blow dryer and warm up the freezer. wait until the water stop dripping out or about 12 to 24 hours and then you can plug it back in . it will work for 2 to 3 weeks.
To unplug the drain.defrost the freezer .remove the back cover. Use a pipe cleaner to clear the drain. pour a few cups of hot water down the drain.
The defrost systems is:
Adaptive defrost control
Start with the adaptive defrost control board. The fresh food section light switch and light bulb must work. To initiate a defrost cycle, open the door and push the light switch in and out 5 times within 6 seconds. The compressor and fans should shut off and the defrost heater should come on. Open the door and push the light switch in and out 5 times within 6 seconds to remove the refrigerator from the defrost mode and back into a cooling mode.

Heater / Thermostat
You will have to remove the back panel of the freezer to check the heater for and thermostat for continuity. Heater are the lease likely part to go bad... I always change thermostat and timers together.
