Question about Frigidaire FRS23KF7AB Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Refrigerator stops cooling, but if I adjust the temp it restarts

My "freezer on top" Sears refrigerator stopped (no fan, no compressor) and all compartments got warm. I cleaned all coils, removed inner panels in freezer, everything looked fine. After many hours it began running again and cooled down to zero degrees in freezer and 49 degrees in frig compartment. After a few hours it clicked off again. I adjusted the temp comtrol slightly and it came back on again. and so on and so on...

What's causing it to stop and not restart itself?

Refrigerator is not cooling properly both, freezer and bottom section. I have adjusted temp settings but no luck. Have any recommendations.


Start with the compressor, make sure it and condenser fan are running, then check the inside fan and check for ice buildup on freezer coils which would indicate a defrost problem. go from there

GE Cafe refrigerator stopped working, both freezer and upper compartment not keeping cool.


Is your compressor kicking on? Does the compressor fan work? Is your condenser grill clear of debrie and dirt? Can air get in the back of the refrigerator (no stored items blocking air flow)? Are the condenser coils iced up?

If the compressor seems to be working. Do you have an ice buildup on the freezer side? You might have to remove the inner back panel to check it!

The fridge is working whit out stop


If the unit is running all the time and is not freezing everything then open the back fiberboard panel and clean out the coils in the back. Check to make sure the condenser cooling fan is running also. If the compressor is running and the condenser fan is not running there is a problem with the condenser fan. The compressor, condenser and evaporator fans all should be running at the same time. the condenser fan can be stuck... have dry bearings... of simply has failed. Before removing the back cover... touch the chassis were the doors close... it should be warm but not VERY warm to the touch. If it is VERY warm to the touch... for sure you have a problem with the condensor fan.

Since you did not say anything other than the fridge is working whit out stop, I have to assume at this point that the evaporator fan is running in the freezer compartment just fine.

I really need to know:
1. Is there ice in the back of the freezer compartment?
2. Is the evaporator fan running?
3. Is the condenser fan running?
4. Are the condenser coils clean?

One of the above has a problem... you just need to identify which one.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly
