Compact electrolux fridge has developed a noise

I have just purchased an RV, the previous owners had a brand new Electrolux Fridgidare compact fridge installed in August 08, it has been working great until about 9 p.m. on friday 1/23/09, it developed a noise that sounded like a fan was hitting something, i went around the back of my RV, took off the back plate and found that the sound was coming from a little white box located next to the compressor at the bottom of the unit.What can this be, how can it be stopped from making the noice and should I contact the company that installed it? Thanks

That little white box is a relay called a PTC relay. Depending on the warranty if you have it or the previous owner and didn't transfer then it needs to be replaced.

The part is about 25 dollars and pretty straight forward to replace. Just remove and take to appliance parts house they should be able to find one for that unit. If you go to a RV dealer I am afraid they will charge you some high dollar amount blaming it on the type of fridge you are dealing with. But this is just a apartment size type so nothing unique about it. let me know how it goes ken

ELECTROLUX American Fridge Freezer making a ticking noise

Hey Jantoye4, thank you for your inquiry!

Based off what you have described your Electrolux freezer is making a ticking noise. This could be from your compressor or condenser. Additionally, you may hear this noise due to your defrost cycle. If you continue to experience the noise more or have another problem I would recommend contacting a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. Best of luck! -Matt

I need a new burner for the E51 grill. It is a three-burner assembly, with spacing between burners about 8.25"

Parts for your grill are available from Electrolux 1-800-320-0859, as well Appliance Factory Parts

FYI - Frigidaire Grill Parts are interchangeable with Electrolux Grills.

Your Owner's Manual should list the part # for the burner you're looking for.

Hope this helped you and Happy Grilling!!

I have 660 hobby van and a electrolux fridge gas and electric, when you turn it on with electric nothing happens when you try gas i can hear it light but the fridge does not get cold please can you help

Hi , I am guessing this is a kind of RV. If it is, I am wondering if you just got it?? If you did just get it then I will say that those kinds of Refrigerators can take up to four hours to show good cooling. Just a thought. Wayne

Fridgidare/Electrolux top freezer not freezing fan stays on.

Look for ice buildup on the back wall of the freezer.
If ice is there you have a defrost parts issue.
If not, check the compressor to make sure it is running.

Electrolux canister vaccum 2100

The filter for your Electrolux 2100 is located on the rear top of the machine. It is covered by a plastic grill. You simply place your finger in the rear of the plastic grill, push the tab in slightly and lift the grill up to expose the filter. The filter is approximately 4" by 6". It is NOT washable. Most Vac Shops sell replacement filters in addition to them being available at the local Electrolux distributor.
