20 Most Recent Frigidaire FRS23H5AS Side by Side Refrigerator Questions & Answers

To help diagnose, there is probably one of two items to check. 1.Take a dollar bill & place it between the door gasket & the fridge. The gasket should tightly grab the dollar all the way around the gasket. I have seen where a rack or drawer was not properly in its track, causing the door to bind just enough to not completely seal. 2. The metal surface where the gasket seals should feel very warm, almost hot. There is a "mullion heater" that is used to prevent condensation on all refrigerators behind the metal trim. I hope it is still under warranty.

sounds like the oil could be low so motor can not cool down ,cause there is a heat sensor on the compressor this makes it trip if hot

There is a metal rod under the ice bucket. This rod sticks out from the back of the bucket. Where it inserts into the ice shelf, you will see a small square hole. This is what changes it from crushed to cubed. It is an actuator that moves the rod to allow cubes to come out. Stick a screwdriver into the square hole and move the actuator up and down. Then reinsert the ice-bucket and that should fix the problem. Hope this helps.

The light for the filter is not a problem. The thing to check is that the fan in the back is running. It should run any time the compressor is running to cool the compressor. If it is, then you need to pull the front grille or toe kick off and look under the fridge. Is there a lot of dust and dirt blocking the airflow? If so, vacuum it out. If not, pull the fridge out and check behind it. Is there a grate clogged up with dust? The reason the divider gets hot is because there is a freon line running through that part of the fridge to keep moisture from forming around the door seals. If the fridge is not cooling properly (dead fan motor or dirt blocked airflow) then the freon in this line gets very hot and all the pressures in the system rise, eventually leading to the fridge not cooling. Good Luck !

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Open the refrigerator and look at the controls. There should be a switch there that says Energy Saver on one side and Moisture Control on the other, move the switch to the Moisture side. That should take care of it

Check your manual, there is a wire or device to shut off icemaker when the ice bin is full it is pushed up to stop the ice making process. Make sure it is not stuck in the up position (off) and is pushed down so it can freely move up and down. If that is not the problem it could be a bad micro switch for the shutoff device or a bad water valve.

The water hose coil is to chill the drinking water coming out of the dispenser. If the water drips out it could be a bad solenoid valve since the water dispenser requires power to dispenser water. If the Ice maker is working fine then check the dispenser water solenoid valve.
