Refrigerator - stopped cooling???


First of all thanks to everyone, Jeff1 in particular for the help with my ice maker. The blow dryer fix worked great. Now however, a few weeks of ice making bliss later, my Frigidaire model FRS24WSGW1 is not cooling correctly. One of those 'yesterday it was fine, this morning its not' deals.

Although I can hear it running, the freezer side is barely at refrigerator level of cold and of course the fridge side is almost at room temperature. Adjusting the temp via the control does turn the appliance off and on. It seems to run constantly when set to "cold" but never gets to the point of freezing liquids. As stated, fridge side is worse.

I'm sure this is a job for the pros but wonder if there is anything else I should check that might add to the info I have.

Thanks in advance,

Glenn

Hi,

Might want to dig in a little deeper to see what is running....fans only, any clicking noises, compressor is acually running, any frost on the freezer back wall, etc.

And Jeff1 comes through AGAIN!. Defrost timer works, frost on the back wall blocking some vent holes at the bottom in the freezer. LOML turned my freezer to a colder setting thinking she was helping (no I'm not just blaming her, she copped to it). I will carfully scrape the frost off and let the ice I can't reach, melt. Then fire it up and see how it goes.

Thanks again, so far!

If the defrost heater works, change the timer and defrost thermostat as they can be intermittant.



Heater-defrost



Thermostat, defrost



Defrost timer control
