FRT18LR7AW2 Frigidaire Refrigerator Not Cooling Properly

When I arrived I opened the freezer door and there was massive frost build-up on the back panel inside the freezer. I Unplugged the refrigerator from the wall outlet, then I got my heat gun and started defrosting it, then I removed the back panel inside the freezer and continued defrosting the evaporator coil.

I noticed a bulge on the top of the defrost thermostat, and ohm tested it while it was still covered in frost and I got no ohms reading at all, so it was bad and the cause of this problem.

Here’s the defrost thermostat for this model:

Kenmore Refrigerator 106.62152111 Not Cooling Properly

I removed back panel in the freezer and found lots of ice clogging up the air vents going to the refrigerator section, and ice clogging the drain line below the freezer evaporator. I de-iced it all, it took awhile to do, but it has to be done before the refrigerator will cool properly again.

I saw the evaporator fan wasn’t running in the freezer, so I removed the electrical connector from it and used my multimeter to see if it was getting 120 volts to it, and it was. So I replaced the evaporator fan motor and it started blowing cold air.

I went out to see why this refrigerator wasn’t cooling. I found that the condenser fan motor, that’s located in the very back of the refrigerator, wasn’t running and blowing air. It had stopped running and I was getting 120 volts to it.

Also due to the condenser fan motor not running it overheated the compressor start relay and made that go bad too. So I replaced both parts and it worked great!

The refrigerator was squealing very loud and it was coming from inside the freezer, I found the evaporator fan motor was squealing and shutting down in sequence, thus not cooling the freezer and refrigerator sections properly.

The evaporator coil had a thin layer of frost on it, which is normal, so the sealed system was working properly.

I replaced the evaporator fan motor, and it started working normal again.

The contact in the temperature control thermostat is sticking, that’s why when the customer hits the middle divider the compressor and fans start running like normal.

The manufacturer has replaced part number WP2315562 with part number W11088945.
