Re: Frigidaire FRT18HB5DW2 fridge not cooling
Sounds like an air flow problem to the lower unit. Take the sheetmetal or plastic rear cover off the freezer back wall and make sure the coils are frosted up good and even but NOT a block of ice inches thick (air needs to circulate and a blocked coil won't let air move over it efficiently). Make sure the fan is running to move the air around. In the fridge area make sure the air dampers are letting the cold air from the freezer down to the fridge compartment. Depending on what you find will determine the next steps so let us know.

Even after you had unplugged and started if the fridge is not cooling well then the compressor is not having the right pressure for the heat exchange. The possible problem can be fault in the compressor or lack of gas in the system. check if the compressor motor speed is fine and pumping well, need to use a current test witth a clamp tester. If not check on the contacter relay, the capapcitor. If ok the gas pressure must be checked or refilled. I hope you can follow this out and try. Good day,
There is a little fan that blows air from the freezer side to cool the fridge side. Pull the plug on the refridgerator for over night, long enough to give it time to defrost if there is any, then plug it back in and see ifthe fan is running. If not then it probably needs to be replaced. If it keeps frosting up and stopping the fan then the defrost timer is probably bad and will need to be replaced.
coils iced up. keep fridge unplugged and open for a while to defrost. dry up inside and possible puddle underneath. plug in, turn on, and leave empty for a day so it'll reach it's temp, then fill it up.
