Question about Frigidaire Refrigerators
After a power outage, the refrigerator keeps getting too cold no matter what the settings are. I turned up the temps to 6 degrees (freezer) and 47 degrees (fridge) and it still reads 6 degrees (freezer) and 17 degrees (fridge) which is causing food to freeze in refrigerator side. I have placed unit into manual defrost mode with no luck. What could the problem be?
It sounds as though your thermostat is not cycling your compressor off causing it to run until the point of freezing. If you sit and listen, you will hear it hum. If it never stops humming, 9 times out of 10, the power outage shorted your thermostat.

Yes pull the refrigerator away from wall and feel top of the compressor. Is it too hot to touch? Are bot fans running. Straight wire the thermostat to see if it is causing this. The start relay and start capacitor may be the reason. Let me know by email you response because Fixya has not been notifying me of any ones response to my solutions. I just found you made a response. Sea Breeze

Hey Rene S, thanks for your post!
In order to reset your Frigidaire refrigerator you would need to disconnect power from it for roughly ten minutes. You can do that by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker. If that does not correct your cooling issue I would recommend contacting a professional to come out and diagnosis your appliance to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt
