Hi adamvovo.
It sounds like the compressor isn't running. The way you can tell if it is or not, is to pull the back off of the refrigerator, and listen, or put your hand on the compressor. It's the small black thing at the bottom, with tubes running into and out of it.
If you don't feel a vibration, or if it cold to the touch after it has been plugged in for awhile, the compressors' bad, or some circuit which controls it.

My freezer frosted over everything because the door was not shut tight and now it will not clear.


take out all the food out of the freezer,unplug the fridge and get a hair dryer and start melting out all the ice in the freezer,then blow the hot air into the vent holes on the back wall until you don't see any more water dripping down through the slots in the back wall.turn the machine back on,open the fridge door after around 5 or 10 minutes and if you feel cold air blowing into the fridge you fixed the problem,if you don't feel cold air keep hitting the inside back wall with the hair dryer and keep blowing the hot air into the holes in the back wall.all that it does is the freezer gets cold and there's a fan behind the back wall in the freezer,the fan blows the cold air into the fridge side,if the air ducts are frozen the air can't circulate into the fridge section so you have to melt the ice out so the cold air can blow from the freezer to the fridge.good luck,if you have another fridge remove the food and unplug it and leave the doors open for a day and it will melt out.good luck

GS2126 not cooling the food but freezer still working


Hi,

Just switch off the fridge for 12 hours or more so that the defrost in the fridge will melt.The flow of air is from freezer to the fridge.The frozen ice will melt and flow of air will become normal.Check for all the ice behind the freezer section melts fully.


Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

Bought this model from someone new, it was working great when I checked it out, transported it to our house and plugged it in the next day. Freezer works well but fridge barely cools at all. Any...


HI There,

If it was transported to to your house not in an upright position, then you may need to unplug it and wait for 8 hours to have the fluids settle before starting it again. If that is not the issue, ensure that there is ample space at the back of the unit, between the wall and the fridge to help circulate the air. Inspect the coil found at the back of the freezer for ice build up or dirt. If there is let it melt and have the unit cleaned out first before restarting.

Frigidaire Refrigerator not cooling


Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer/control board
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.
