Model FRT045GB


Good Morning Jr. Riojas,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire compact refrigerator, model# FRT045GB, and it not cooling. I also see that you have reset your refrigerator, by unplugging it, and it works fine for two weeks, then you have to repeat resetting it. I suggest contacting either the manufacturer or your local authorized technician for further assistance. They should be able to better assist as to why your refrigerator cools for a few weeks and then you have to unplug it for it to cool a couple more. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

If the rear cooling coils are warm and the refrigerator is level and there is still no cooling, then you more then likely will need to replace your cooling unit. It takes a couple of hours to do but you dont need any specialized tools. Check out ArctiCold Refrigeration We keep it cold Your unit can be found on ebay at under half the price of a new fridge.

I had an ice build up on the freezer and it was working. it melted and is not working at all now. It is less than a year old. the model is mcbr170w


i looked up the model number but couldn't find your machine,anyway don't touch it,call the factory and tell them what's happening,if you touch it or have someone else touch it you can void your warranty because it's under one year old

Inside strip of fridge is very hot. cleaned out behind fridge and the coils, etc. fan is barely moving/not moving. any suggestions???


Replace the fan. The strip has a freon line running behind it, and when it is hot, this tells us that you have a dirty condensor, bad condensor fan motor, bad evaporator fan motor, defrost problem, or a freon system problem. When you say your fan is barely moving, I am assuming this is your condensor fan motor, which sucks air through the hot freon lines in the condensor coils, and cools the freon off. If it is barely moving, it can't cool the freon. In some brands a slow moving condensor fan can be caused by a bad main control board. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

The refrigeration works fine for a few months and at a random interval will stop working. The ice melts and everything else gets warm. When unplugged then plugged back in, it works fine.


What is probably happening is you have ice buildup on your condensor(usaully located behind a panel inside freezer compartment) what happens is ice buildup over time will cause the condensor to stop cooling efficiently.One solution is to unplug frig and let ice melt off condensor, which you should do anyway unless it is a frost free model ,in which case you have a defrost problem. If this is the problem, you should check out the solution in one of my earlier threads posted 9/23 Hope this helps.

The refrigerator portion has quit cooling.


I have the same problem and have found that if you take the panel off inside the refrigerator and with a blow dryer defrost it. It should work for a few weeks. I have been doing this once a month since March and I hope to found out how to fix it also.
