Frigidaire refrigerator #FLSC238DS6

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

My unit wont get cold, had power outage and think it needs to be reset. How do u reset compressor or unit?


See this video for the "reset" function of some refrigerators:

How Do Reset My Frigidaire Refrigerator


Said this, I don't mean to "panic" you but if you can't find this "restet" function, your refrigerator suffered a surge effect and might have some electronic cricuir damaged; in best case, some internal security fuse, typical as result of power outage, when power returns.
If you can't find that "reset" call repair service.
By the way, get a surge protector for your refrigerator as soon as possible. See some typica protectors at Amazon, but you can buy one at your local home depot or outlet store.

Frigidaire wont get cold


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

Why is refrig so cold its freezing liquids


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS23KF7AB, is so cold that it is freezing liquids inside the refrigerator area. I also see that you have it set on the warmest setting. First, I suggest setting the controls to the factory setting. Secondly, reset your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. When power is restored, leave the setting on the factory setting, and give your refrigerator 24 hours to stabilize at the factory setting. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your refrigerator status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-
WP

Frigidaire GLHS269ZCB4 after power outage Freezer not cooling fridge warmer hear the fan click and short cycle


Hello Wayne, thank you for allowing me to assist you. Was the freezer unplugged during the power outage? If it was, here are some simple troubleshooting steps you need to take:

It is best to unplug the unit and wait for the power to come back on.

Next, turn the control to off (or digital display), plug the unit in and reset control to factory-suggested setting.

Do not open freezer door unnecessarily if freezer is off for several hours. Make sure the refrigerator plug is tightly pushed into electrical outlet and not plugged into a GFI.

If your unit has no power and it is not due to a power outage, check the following:

Verify that the temperature control is set to the OFF position.
Set temperature controls to proper setting suggested by your owner's guide; or set to the halfway point and adjust it up or down as needed.

If these basic troubleshooting tips prove ineffective, the power loss may have possibly caused a communication problem with the control board, temperature control or wiring harness. At this point, I would recommend having a service technician to diagnose the problem before investing in unnecessary parts.

What are the correct temps. for freezer and main refrigerator


Refrigerator should not be warmer than 40F. Optimal temps are 34F, this keeps your food cold without freezing it and slows down bacteria growth !

Freezer section no warmer than 10F. Normal temp 0F, optimal/recommended -10F (also for cold icecream) and for quick recovery in case of power outages.

I hope this helps.
