I have an Electorlux model fftr1817lw2. The freezer is cold, but the lower section only gets cool at best.
Answer Hello Angelo,
You will want to check the rear wall of the freezer to check to see if it has heavy frost build up. If so then you have a defrost failure. You can put the unit into a manual defrost to see if the heater and bimetal are working. To do this you will turn the defrost timer until it clicks. The fan and compressor should shut off and defrost heater should come on. If it does not come on then check the continuity of the heater with unit uplugged and the bimetal. If one is bad replace.

Answer Hello Steve,
You will want to check the start relay on the compressor to make sure that it is not blown. You do this by pulling the relay off compressor with unit unplugged. Shake the relay and if it rattles then you need to replace the relay.
Freezer section works but the refrigerator section is not cooling. What is most likely the problem?
Answer Hello Stanley,
You may want to check your evaporator fan motor 242077701, your defrost bi-metal5303918202, defrost heater242044019, and defrost timer215846604. When you access your evaporator fan motor you should have 120vac across the terminals. If you have proper power then you need to replace fan motor. If the fan motor is operational and you have impacted evaporator coils then you would want to check continuity of bi-metal and heater. If both check good then you would want to replace defrost timer. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
