Frigidaire refrigerator not cooling at times

The compressor in my Frigidaire side-by-side model FRS6LR5EW6 does not run at times. It seemed the compressor was attempting to start but could not. Per my wife there was a "clicking noise". I unplugged the unit for a few minutes and the compressor started with no problems. The compressor failed again the following day. Unplugging the unit for 10 minutes did not fix the problem. However, an hour or so later it kicked on and began cooling. I've been unable to simulate the problem or noise. For the last 20 hours the refrigerator has cooled with no issues. I initially thought thermostat but the noise has thrown me off. What is causing this problem? Relay? Thanks in advance for your time, Chris

Model GSI-26 suddenly stopped cooling


It sounds like your compressor is having a hard time starting. Take your model number to an appliance parts store and ask for a compressor start relay. It plugs directly into your compressor and is easily replaced. Remember to unplug the refer first.

Sweating inside refrigerator needs wiped often


When troubleshooting to determine what exactly is wrong with your refrigerator, start with the most immediate symptom that you notice. The most obvious common problem would be that the refrigerator is not running. If the light inside the refrigerator is not on, you have no power to the refrigerator. This could mean that the AC outlet is defective, that the breaker has been tripped, or that the service cord is defective. Check your breaker, and try plugging another appliance into the outlet to see if it is functioning properly. Look for nicks in the service cord, as well. If the light is on, there are a number of things that could be defective, including the temperature control device, the defrost timer, the start relay, or even the compressor. The last of these is quite expensive, and you may want to have a professional take a look at your refrigerator before buying any parts.


The second most common complaint on a refrigerator is probably that it runs continuously. If it runs all the time with no cooling, your compressor, again, may be insufficient or faulty. However, first check that there is no loss of charge on the refrigerant. This is the less expensive of the two problems to fix. If you find that the refrigerator runs continuously and is TOO cool, you either have a defective temperature control or this control needs adjusting. There may also be an instance where the unit runs excessively but the freezer and refrigerator are still not cold enough. This could mean issues with the evaporator fan, the defrost timer, or simply the sealing of the unit or could be compressor failure or a dirty or defective condenser.


The third common complaint is a normal but sweaty refrigerator. If the sweat is condensing on the inside of the unit, you have bad door seals and need to have them replaced. If there is sweat on the exterior of the refrigerator, it could be bad door seals or may be faulty insulation or even a heater that is defective in the door channel. Of course, there are several other smaller problems that regularly occur in refrigerators that sometimes are more of an annoyance than a real problem. However, if you think that something really is wrong with your refrigerator beyond these more typical issues, don't hesitate to get it checked out by a licensed professional.

Frigidaire refrigerator/freezer side by side not kicking on. Both freezer and refrigerator not cooling.


If the unit is not cooling in either section of the appliance, you are experiencing some form of sealed system issue. This can include the compressor not working correctly, the evaporator fan not turning, or even coolant in the lines not at the correct levels to properly cool. If the compressor is running, humming, or even a little warm then that is typically normal. However if the compressor is running hot, then it is over working and the issue could be before the compressor in the evap fan, coil or coolant lines. Unless the unit is displaying an error code, often alpha-numeric, then you would need to contact your manufacturer and then a professional to move forward accurately.

WILL NOT COOL OR MAKE ICE. COMPRESSOR DOES NOT SEEM TO COME ON.


next time send the model number off of the fridge,side by side or bottom freezer model number is in fresh food section,right hand wall up near ceiling or on ceiling,top freezer look on left side wall.if the compressor isn't running most likely you have a bad start device located on the side of compressor,pull out the fridge,unplug it,remove the back outside bottom panel and you'll see the compressor,pop off the metal clip,remove the cover and slide off the start device or overload and relay same thing,then shake the device,if you hear pieces rattling around inside it it's bad,easiest way to check it,if you open the freezer door and you hear the fan blowing around most likely this will be your problem,you might hear the compressor clicking trying to start and it will be hot,also vac out the condenser coil and make sure the condenser fan motor is running good,over heating can take out the start device.good luck.

Frigidaire Side By Side Not Cooling


That sounds like the start relay is buzzing. Unplug and lets check the compressor to see how hot and if too hot to hold your hand on the top of compressor we need to leave it unplugged until we find out if the start relay, start capacitor, overload or if the condenser fan stops after running a short while.
