Question about Frigidaire 13.7 cu. ft. / 388 liter Upright Freezer AFFU1466D
Fan running and compressor runs for 5 seconds and turns off. Thus it would appear the compressor is the problem? If so is this fixable or is it time to buy a new freezer. Thanks.
Sounds like the low pressure cutout switch is stopping your compressor running, especially if the "5 seconds" you mention are exactly the same length each time. Not enough refrigerant would be the usual cause, but the reason for the refrigerant loss is harder to tie down - possibly a seal or a loose valve seat or even a pinhole in a copper tube. Best solution now would be to get a refrigerator mechanic to top it up and check for leaks - get a quote first to check - 'fridge gas is getting costly. Other possible solution is that the low pressure switch itself is faulty, relatively inexpensive to replace (but unfortunately you will need at least a partial gas recharge on most types of system after) - your fridge gas guy will be able to check very easily if there is adequate gas in the system, and should check this low pressure switch if there is not. Usually this is fixable many times, just check the cost first. Hope this helps :)
