Please help!!

Frigidaire Gallery

S/#LA21513034

Mod#PLRS267ZA

Man:April 02

Ciols are freezing up and refrigerator is not cooling enough to keep food fresh. I've already had thermostat changed and thought it would fix it. I've been told that it can be the extension valve which regulates and sends signals to control temperature in coils. Whether this is accurate or not I don't kown.

If someone can shed some light as well the model & s/# for the products I need to purchase.

Thanks in advance!!!

** Mod # PLRS267ZA **

That model number looks incomplete, there should be another couple of digits to it. Did you get it right off the appliance's model number identification tag? That is the only reliable place the complete information will be found.

You can find tips for locating the model number identification tag on your appliances in the 'Repair Parts' section of my web site linked below.

** Coils are freezing up and refrigerator is not cooling enough to keep food fresh. **

What *exactly* do you mean by "freezing up"? Excessive white, snow-like "frost" or clear "ice"?? It is an important distinction.

If "frosting", you may has a defrost system problem (see the following links).

** I've already had thermostat changed **

Which "thermostat"? The temperature control or the defrost termination thermostat?

Was it found to be defective or just replaced *guessing* it was the cause?

Thx Dan for the quick response. The correct model # is PLRS267ZABO.

Excessive white, snow-like "frost" is what I see on the back inner wall of the freezer.

I've taken off the cover and the coils are also covered with snow-like frost. I don't know if this is the norm, but I used a blow dryer to defrost the coils.

Defrost termination or temperature control thermostat.I wasn't aware that it had two thermostats. The process of elimination is currently being used, so that was a guess.

I will check out the sites and get back to you w/an update.

Thx

Not if totally plugged. That's what the defrost system is for, to keep it "frost free".

** I wasn't aware that it had two thermostats. **

Actually your model has 3 (if you don't count the compressor's overload protector which could be considered # 4). Neither of the *temperature* thermostats (aka 'cold controls') would be responsible for excessive frosting of the evaporator (cooling) coil.

** I've already had thermostat changed **

Whom have you had performing the service? Were they a Frigidaire *factory authorized* service depot? If not, that is whom I would suggest you call for service on a Frigidaire product. They would be most familiar with servicing the product and likely best able to correct problems... the first time.
