Question and Answers

Q:

Why is my Frigidaire refrigerator model # mrs26lgjb0 not cooling?

A:

Why is my Frigidaire refrigerator model # mrs26lgjb0 not cooling?

Here are some possibilities your refrigerator is not cooling:

  • Control Setting – Look at the dial. Sometimes freezer dials are located in the refrigerator.

  • Vent being blocked – Air flows between the freezer and refrigerator sections to provide proper cooling via air vents. Move any food items that might block the vents.

  • Warm air getting in – If doors are being left open, opened frequently, or if there are poor seals around the door(s). Also food stored in the door of the refrigerator often stays warmer than food in the interior.

Surrounding temperature is too low or too high

Too low (below 55F) (Winter): (Does not affect standalone freezers) If the unit is in a cold environment such as an unheated garage, basement or outdoors, this may affect the thermostat.

Too high (above 110F) (Summer): If the unit is in a hot environment such as a closed garage without air conditioning, on an enclosed back porch, or in direct sunlight, this may overheat the system affecting performance.

  • Condenser coil is dirty – When the condenser coil is dirty it causes the sealed system to overheat and therefore the refrigerator will not cool properly.

  • Defrost Cycle - When the refrigerator goes into defrost, the cooling mode stops and a defrost heater energizes to remove accumulated frost from the evaporator (cooling) coil, which causes the freezer temperature to rise slightly.

  • Refrigerator Lacks Clearance For Proper Air Circulation - Refrigerators require a specific amount of clearance around the cabinet to allow for air circulation. If the refrigerator does not have the minimum clearance required, the refrigerator or freezer cannot cool properly.

If these tip do not help, I recommend calling for service so a technician can properly diagnose and repair your refrigerator.
