took me a while to find info... your fridge is actually a French door bottom freezer model and not a side by side.. Makes a big difference when searching Frigidaire info as they categorize their manuals by style and manufacture date.

This fridge has extensive diagnostics that would require a tech manual and thus. an upgrade to apprenticeship for you to receive it.. it's possible you can repair the problem by replacing thermistors.... btw is the fridge making ice?

did not check frost pattern yet,thanks for info guys [and manual!]  but im in a little deep because i purchased unit for resale  and was lied to that it was 100%   after i asked 3 times!     i made mistake on 1 issue      it keeps accurate temps for a day or so then temps begin to get colder than what i set them for,,,,i mean if i set  for 40 deg in ff it will go to 29 deg     etc, can it still have a leak if it can achieve 10 below and better on freezer?

 


also to let you know    there are no error codes

ok i figured out that on these units that use  variable speed compressors,the compressor doesnt shut off,it just slows down and speeds up as needed.

my temps are fine,,,,,,,the were only going down because the room has no heat overnight,screwing up temps overnite
