Friend,
ngfam1 At your service!

Sounds like your thermostat is malfunctioning.
Do not let it keep going like this without service or it will burn out the compressor soon by running non stop.

How old is the fridge????

now that's expensive and not worth investing in if the fridge is 10 years old or more the new refrigerates use much less power and can change your electric bill for the better !

What would cause my freezer to freeze, refrigerator not cool, fan in back runs, motor hot


Good Morning Carlene,

I understand the freezer is freezing, in your Frigidaire refrigerator, but the refrigerator portion is not cool. I also see that the fan in the back is running and the motor is hot. 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, stop the alarm, and press the "Factory Default" button. This will reset your temperatures to 37F on the refrigerator side and 0F on the freezer side. Keep an eye on your refrigerator temperatures, to see if they go down. 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-

Frigidaire side by side - fridge side temp too low


It sounds as though your thermostat is not cycling your compressor off causing it to run until the point of freezing. If you sit and listen, you will hear it hum. If it never stops humming, 9 times out of 10, the power outage shorted your thermostat.

The turn dial that controls your fridge temp also controls the freezer temp. The freezer air is directly forced into the freezer compartment and then sent to the reigerator. Adjust the dial for the fridge not to be so cold and it will adjust the feezer also. Allow about 24 hours for any noticeable change.

Power Problem


You will certainly have to replace the thermostat. Typical problem is once temp. is reached, it takes forever to come on.
