Frigidaire FRS26R4CB not getting cold u/k why

Fridge FRS26R4CB is about 5 yrs old. One day it was warm so the repair guy found a hole and fixed it and recharged. Worked for 2 weeks and got warm again. He came back and checked his work - confirmed it was sealed and not leaking. He re-charged it again and still did nto work. Tested the compressor and it was fine. Fridge runs fine, has 120 psi pressure, no leaks, no other problems but he does not know why it wont work. He gave our money back but the fridge still does not work!!! Any ideas!?

If the defrost heating element, defrost timer or evaporater fan weren't working, you'd develop a block of ice on the evaporator. Is the compressor running? If it is, it might have bad valves from the frost buildup scenario. Liquid refrigerant could have gotten to the suction valves. The sealed system should have a five year warranty. Might be time to call a pro

My fridge stopped cooling. the motor runs, but everything is warm. I have a bottom freezer Amana approx 4 yrs old. Is it worth fixing or should I buy a new one?


The compressor is working is a good thing ,you have leaked out some freon and it might be pricey to fix and I don't know with all the capturing of the gas ,recharging, only after they found the leak. Definitely get an estimate before you do anything ,but to answer you question is it worth it ,you'll have to weigh that out ,but a fridge is good for at least 10 to 15 years or longer. If not freon you could also have a thermostat problem which wont be so heavy on the wallet, get a guy out to diagnose it and see where you stand is all you can do.

FREEZER IS TO COLD, REFRIGERATOR TO WARM


if you can; find the vent(s) between the top and, bottom boxes (where the evaporator fan is located: closing these vents makes the freezer colder and, the refrigerator warmer, opening these vents the reverse is true.

My freezer is on the highset setting and does not freeexe for 2 days, smae with the lower section does not seem cold at all.


1. Is there still power to the fridge/freezer?
(Is the fridge light still working ok?)

If so, this may be a faulty thermostat.

2. Does the black grille on the back of the fridge feel warm?
Does the compressor at the bottom, rear of fridge still work?
(You can usually hear this when it's working, and the case is usually warm, or sometimes hot)

If you are unlucky, the compressor may have started to fail.
This is expensive to repair! Around £100 to £150 ($166 to $250)

If you are VERY unliucky, there may be a leak from somewhere in the narrow pipework running through the fridge or freezer.
Although it is possible to find where the leak is (IF it's in a part that is visible!) this is an expensive repair job, and the fridge will have to be re-gassed afterwards. May cost around £100+ ($166+)

How old is the fridge?
If it's more than 10 years old, you may be unlucky and have one of the last two problems, both which are expensive to fix and this makes it uneconomical to repair.

If you are lucky, it may just be the thermostat. That's not expensive. May cost you around £10 to 20 ($16 to £33)

Refrigerator won't stay cold


where you found the block of ice there should have been a drain hole with a tube attached that runs to the evaporative pan at the bottom ... most likley is the pan at the bottom is dirty and the drin tube is plugged at this point the easy fix is to (1) clean the drain pan (2) remove the ice in the cold transfer shaft as you have done before (3) pour warm water into the drain hole as it is probally iced up and last take a can of air like you use for a computer key board with the straw attached place it in the drain hole and hold a wet rag around it and press the button once this is clear you should be home free hope this helps

My fridge won't cool down or freeze


Your condenser is likely dirty clean it. the compressor could be tripped out on over load (to hot) unplug the fridge a couple hours should do it . plug it back in make sure the thermostat is on and set correctly if that does not work you will need service. Tom

Fridgidare, freezer cold fridge warm


sounds like you may have gotten a refridgerant leak causing a low charge condition. some refridgerators have a evaporator fan if this quit working it will cause it to freeze up .thus the freezer does not use a fan and it will still get cold

Kenmore Fridge 4 yrs old side by side model not cooling


Hi. Your refrigerator is under 5 years and the compressor is still under full warranty. Call Sears and get it fixed parts and labor included. There should be no charge to you whatsoever. Make sure they understand that on the phone when you set up the appointment. You would be better off having a different technician from Sears come out to your house, as the one that came was not honest with you. Good luck, Mack
