Mike, the work on the sealed system without changing a compressor
takes around 2 hours if everything goes well. Plus a lot depends on the
unit you work on including the type of the system R-12 or R-134 A. Just
to vacuum the system takes around 30 min for good quality repair work.

SOURCE: refrigerator and freezer not cooling

That depends on who told you that answer and if the evaporator coil is in need of repair. The answer to a leak in a sealed system is yes and most likely to be in the evaporator coil because some companies use epoxy to attach the aluminum coils to the copper tubing. And the constant changes in warm to cold in that area cause the connections to crack. Hope this helped answer your question, Thanks, Sea Breeze

How do I completely open a partially opened freezer drawer?


Hello Laura;

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

Refrigerators with freezer drawers are nice up until the time that you need to call a service technician, and find out it cost about 40% more than a top or side by side refrigerator to repair.

If you leave your freezer drawer not completely closed, outside warm air enters your freezer and you get Ice build up on the rail system. It is difficult to see if the freezer drawer is completely closed because the fresh food section doors above block the view.

If you can pull the drawer out part of the way, use a hair dryer directly on the rail system on both sides in a effort to melt the restricting ice. Take your time. This may take several hours at which time you will push and pull on the drawer every 30 minutes until you break the rail system free from ice restriction.

After you have the door free, with a kitchen spatula and a hair dryer heat the gasket around the freezer door gasket pulling the gasket out to repair a possible crushed door gasket and not having a goo seal.

I have gone on service calls where the rail system ice was so built up, all I could do was to advise the customer to unplug the refrigerator for 36-24 hours to clear the ice from the rail system.

This is a common problem with drawer freezers. Next time get either a top mount refrigerator freezer or a side by side. Lower repair cost and more reliable.

How to install seal side seals on frigidaire dishwasher model number FGCD2456


Hello Dwight, thank you for your inquiry!

From my understanding you need helps installing the side seals on your Frigidaire dishwasher, FGCD2456. If your seals have been properly installed there may be another gasket causing the internal leak. Is it coming from the corner of the sides? This could be a possible issue with the lower door gasket or the door itself. I would check to make sure it is properly sitting on the hinges and not adjusted incorrectly. You may need to have a professional technician out to perform a proper diagnosis. Hope this help you with your repair. -Matt

Wha is the Frigidaire FSC23F7DSB warrenty


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that you want to know the warranty on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FSC23F7DSB. There is a one year warranty, where the manufacturer will pay all costs for repairing or replacing any parts of this appliance which prove to be defective in materials or workmanship. This does exclude original and replacement ice & water filter cartridges (if equipped). Original and replacement cartridges are warranted for 30 days (parts only).

There is a second through fifth year warranty on the cabinet liner and sealed system. This means the manufacturer will repair or replace any parts in the cabinet liner or Sealed Refrigeration System (compressor, condenser, evaporator, drier and tubing) which prove to be defective in materials or workmanship. Check with the manufacturer for any further details. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-
WP

Compressor failed and was replaced by technician. He now says the evaporator is clogged and will have to be replaced. Will I continue to have problems after this next part replacement since the sealed unit...


It(evaporator) may have been the reason for the original failure. If he did a poor job brazing the new compressor it could have caused the restriction. If he failed to replace the filter drier it could have clogged. If he did not vacuum the system from the high and low sides it could have caused a restriction.
He could open the system,replace the filter drier,blow nitrogen through the high and low sides to clear a restriction possibly without having to replace the evaporator. Then pull a thorough vacuum and recharge refrigerant with a weight scale.

Possible leak in the sealed system. Make sure the technician pressurizes the system with nitrogen, changes drier, evacuates to 500 microns, then weighs in the correct charge.

I have been working in this field for nearly 48 years and I see to many times where people doing service do not have the customers best interest at heart. Get a second opinion and don't tell them what the other quoted.
