Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the door between the freezer and refrigerator on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS26ZSG, will not open. I will be more than happy to assist you. The model number you have provided pulls up a side by side refrigerator, which only has two doors. So I am able to better assist, please provide me the model number to your refrigerator and elaborate more on which door will not open. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the bulb burned out in your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS26ZSG. I suggest contacting the manufacturer, so they are able to find out which bulb it is and find the part for you. They should be able to sell you the part at which time you can replace the bulb. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Good Afternoon Friend, this is Z. Thank you for your post!

Often when the temperature in the freezer compartment is cold but not cooling in the refrigerator section, it is because the temperature control is set too cold/high or the damper door is not closing. Turn the control to a warmer setting and allow several hours for the temperature to stabilize. Please allow the temperature of your refrigerator to stabilize within 24 hours. If it does not, then more than likely the control is not telling the damper when to close and/or your refrigerator might possibly have a faulty thermistor or temperature control. I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose your appliance to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

is there a heavy frost build up on the back wall of the freezer?? is the fan in the freezer working??

Frigidaire... | Answered on Mar 12, 2014

The defrost timer for a model FRS26ZSG is found behind the kick plate at the bottom and front of your refrigerator. You will need to pull the kick plate off. If you turned the timer then that is the defrost timer part number=> 215846602 Defrost Timer I am here should you have questions, Sea Breeze

Light going out is a separate problem. If the freezer is still working and the fan in the freezer operating check for frost on the back wall. If there is frost on the back wall you have a defrost system problem.
Possible open heater, bad timer, or defrost thermostat. If the freezer is not working check for power to it. Reset the breaker if necessary.
If the light went out because of some power loss the freezer would not be working.

If the drain is clogged with Ice or ? it overflows into the ref.

Sounds like the fan behind the rear freezer panel has stopped working,therefore no air flow over evaporator coils causing ice built up and no cooling on refrigerator side. easy fix

Frigidaire... | Answered on Jan 09, 2011

Our side by side Frigidaire was doing the same with water dripping out from the bottom of freezer area when the door was opened. It was a clogged drain tube (for the freezer defrost coils) causing our problem. The following steps are how I fixed the clogged drain tube which may be difficult to find and service depending on your unit and experience with appliance repair.

1st, pull frig/freezer away from the wall so you can get behind the unit then UNPLUG the electrical cord. You can leave the water line hooked-up if you have enough room to get behind the unit. Go ahead and round up a flashlight, vacuum, and whatever tool(s) required to remove screws from your unit.

2nd, MAKE SURE IT IS UNPLUGGED, then using whatever tool you need (1/4" socket for some) remove the screws from the paper (or other material) cover located on the back of unit near the bottom. When this cover is removed you should see a fan under the freezer side and a compressor unit under the refrigerator side if you have a frig/freezer with coils located under the unit instead of on the rear.

3rd, you may need to vacuum first to see it but there is a (black, dark grey, or white) drain tube located under the freezer side (near the fan in ours) running down from the freezer compartment to a plastic tray. Ours was approx 1/2" in diameter yours may be the same. Also, the tray may be built into the bottom of the unit and not be removable

4th, when you have located the drain tube you will need to gently pull it up (twisting side to side may help) and out of the retainer built into the tray so you can clean out the end. I used a vacuum and straightened paper clip to remove the crud from the tube and water started coming out while I was doing this. While you have the back/bottom cover off you might as well vacuum everything you can safely reach to help prevent the drain getting clogged again.

5th, after cleaning everything place the drain tube back into the retainer on the plastic tray and make sure you check the tube to prevent a kink. Also, the tube should not touch the bottom of the tray.

6th,replace the back/bottom cover and make sure to use the correct fasteners for whichever hole/clip they were removed from. After the cover is back on plug it back in and listen for the fan to come on. If everything sounds normal push the unit back to its normal position and congratulate your self on a job well done.
