Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

The electrical transformer to our home failed and apparently sent a surge to our appliances that were running. Our frigidaire refrigerator, model GLHS68EGSBO will not cool. It appears the controls were zapped as their are lights, but no cooling. On/off button does not respond. How can I check to see if a control fuse was blown?

Frigidaire model FRS3R5EMB0 I can't get the screws out to change water paddle Is there a special tool?

There are square head fasteners on electrical appliances. You need to stop by some hardware store or home depot.

Hello Erin;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration.

You need to have individual surge protector on all of your appliances with a control board. They are $15.00 - $20.00 at Lowes or Home Depot. They will one day save you an expensive repair bill. Power surges and even static electricity will knock out a board.

Now, in your case I do not believe you have a power board problem.

I can not help you unless you send me the model number. The model number is on the inside wall, near the top in your fresh food section.

Why would my Frigidaire refrigerator stop working when I turned my electricity off and never come back on


My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
It is recommended by manufacturers that appliance, especially those the control boards have surge protectors.
Try rebooting your unit. Unplug you unit for ten minutes. Then plug it back in. If it does not start, you blew your main control board.

I have Frigidaire model# FRS26H5ASB4 and had a recent bad outlet surge of power. Now all light are on in the frig but the Compressor and Ice Maker are not working. How can I find out the what the prob

Ice maker won't work if compressor will not run, of course. I would suspect the main circuit board if there was a bad surge of electricity, or the problem could be at the compressor, i.e., a bad relay, overload, or start capacitor.

Frigidaire does not cool and sometimes shocks you

Good morning friend, thank you for your post!

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator is not cooling and will shock you. I would recommend you having a technician come out to your home to properly diagnose and repair your appliance. Normally if it is not cooling we could provide some troubleshooting but with you appliance discharging electric energy I would recommend service. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Frigidaire refrigerator is beeping, it is working great, just 8 months old

Good Morning Friend,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FFHS2313LS, beeping. There could have been a possible power failure. In the event of a power failure, the 'power fail' alarm will sound three times. The 'power fail' alarm is an audible alarm only and does not display in the control panel. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it, or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 2-3 minutes. When you bring power back you will hear the 'power fail' alarm again. If you notice your refrigerator still beeping, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your refrigerator and determine why it is beeping. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

The starter on the compressor burned up and also where you plug it into the compressor .do i have to replace the whole compressor? it a Frigidaire side by side model number FRS6LR5E83. i bought a new...

New compressor, very expensive repair, unless it is under the 5 year system warrantee. If it is out of warrantee then junk it. Buy a Whirlpool or Kitchen Aid refrigerator, and buy a wall mount 2000 joule or higher surge protector to help prevent this from happening again. Lowes has the "Prime" brand surge protectors for 12.00 to 20.00. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Power in house went out for 6 hours now the coil is cooling but fan not running

Your defost timer control board may have burned out from the power surge.I think they are electronic defrost on there models.If not you may need a compressor relay kit.Yuo can get the parts using your model # at your local appliance parts store.

Had electrical prob. blew some breakers for kitchen circuit. After fix all other affected appliances/outlets etc. are fine but KitchenAid dw now does not work. No sign of life at all, no led's light on...

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

With electronic controlled appliances today and in this case your dishwasher. The printed circuit board (PCB) transformers are very susceptible to power surges. The windings are just large enough for the normal operational voltages. Anything above or below that range causes the windings to fail rapidly. When they fail you do not get the 5V or 3.3 V for the LEDs ' and IC chips or the 12V for the controlling the relays for normal operation.

I don't see a model number listed for your dishwasher so I can not provide the replacement part information at this time.

Before I went into the parts changing mode I would first go back and reset every breaker in the house by:

1. Pushing each breaker with conviction to the OFF position. This completely resets the breaker.

2. As you turn each of the breaker ON push hard on the face of the breaker near the center of the main panel to ensure it remains connected / engaged to the main power buss bar.
Then go back and check the dishwasher for signs of life. If it works great! If not.... I will be watching for model number information if you need help with the dishwasher control parts information.

Just a side note... you may want to check your home owners insurance coverage (if your a home owner) to see if it covers repair of equipment other than the one that caused the original problem.

Thanks for using FixYa.
