Default Frigidaire Refridgerator won't get cold
Model Number: FRT18IL6DMJ   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Fridge and freezer won't get cold....it runs/ fan runs and compressor runs, coil starts to get cold...a buddy who is an HVAC guy looked at it....says if compressor doen't feel "really hot" that he thinks its either the defrost timer or the temp control switch...found these parts and look very simple to swap out.

Any suggestions?

Here are your parts
Replacement parts for FRG FRT18IL6DMJ | AppliancePartsPros.com

Here is the wiring diagram
ftp://ftp.electrolux-na.com/ProdInfo.../240379018.pdf

he thinks its either the defrost timer or the temp control switch

From your description I do not think it is either

defrost timer - remove the rear covers at the back of the freezer so you can see the evaporator coils. If they are not heavily iced/frosted up you do not have a defrost problem.

temp control - unless the condenser/compressor fan is shutting off the compressor is getting voltage and it is trying to cool down to set point.

Sounds more like low freon. Check the evaporator coils if they only get cold/frosty where the freon enters the coil, it is probably low freon

Here is a good link

Yup, only cold coming out of compressor....

what is approx cost for appliance tech to add freon? Does this mean it's leaking freon ( 2 year old fridge)?

Sorry cannot help you with a cost.
Perhaps call a couple local repair shops for a quote.
If you post your location maybe one of the techs who posts on this site could give an estimate.

Yes you have a leak.
There is no use refilling it unless the leak is found and fixed first.
