Frigidaire Refrigerator PLHT219SCB9... Freezer will not shut off.. cold.. ice maker very slow..


Hello Myles, thank you for your post!

Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire refrigerator is not shutting off and it is making ice very slowly. If your refrigerator is too cold ice production will slow down. I would recommend turning your refrigerator up to the factory setting of 0 degrees inside the freezer and 37 degrees in the fresh food side. You may also have an issue with the thermostat and I would suggest performing a reset to help clear out any miscommunications within your refrigerator. In order to reset your refrigerator you would need to unplug the power cord for at least ten minutes. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

possible solutions to fridge and freezer not working


I appreciate your post, Dennis Miller!

From what you have described your Electrolux refrigerator is not working and you would like to know some possible solutions causing the problems. You could have a possible issue with your evaporator fan, sealed system, thermostat, or control panel. Due to the amount of possibilities I would recommend having a professional technician out to provide an accurate diagnosis on your refrigerator. This will help to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Hope this information is helpful. -Matt

fridge is running but not getting cold. Line underneath feels very cold but air coming in fridge is not cold. Fan under the freezer and fridge is running.


Hi

If refrigerator is not cooling properly it can be due to a defrost timer, which is causing the fridge to go into defrost cycle. Usually it takes 45-60 minutes for refrigerator to come out of defrost cycle. If the timer is bad then it will not come out of defrost cycle and can result in this kind of issues. It can also occur due to a bad defrost thermostat, it allows current to pass through it at temperatures of 20 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit and prevents current from passing through it at 40 to 60 degrees. This is difficult to test, though, because it takes a prolonged, very-cold temperature to turn it on. The defrost thermostat is snapped onto the top portion of the evaporator. The thermostat sends temperature information to the processor. The defrost heater must be replaced when replacing the thermostat.
1. Remove the lower fan duct work from the evaporator cover.
2. Remove the 1/4-in. evaporator cover screws and remove the evaporator cover.
3. Disconnect the defrost thermostat wiring connector.
4. Remove the defrost thermostat from the evaporator.

Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.
