SOURCE: Frigidaire FRS26R4A Vibrating Noise

Finally called a service technician. He said the compressor was bad and needs replacing. Fortunately, I'm in the 2nd - 5th year of my limited warranty so parts and labor are covered. He also said that the FRS26R4A is "junk" and it helps to support his family.

At idle it is quite but when the compressor kicks on it makes a loud grinding noise.


The condenser fan in the back near the compressor comes on when the compressor comes on. The fan motor is the likely problem. It is easy to replace and inexpensive. Here is a link that should help Condenser fan replacement Spin the fan blade by hand or listen closely when it is making the noise to isolate it.

Now if the fan is not the problem and the noise is coming from the compressor, the compressor will likely need to be replaced. This is hardly ever worth the cost of the repair. You would be better off buying a new unit.

Refrigerator runs but dosen't cool. Can here it running but I don't hear any clicking sounds like the compressor is trying to start


Lets try doing this by plulling away from wall and unplug the power cord. Remove lower cover over the compressor and with power disconnected feel top of compressor. Tell me if cool, warm or too hot to keep hand on top. Click on The Point and Click Banner below=> Enter this number into search box FRS26R4AQ2

Then enter model FRS26R4AQ2 into search box and click the search button. This will help me guide you through solving this problem. Now click Here=> FRS26R4A That will show a large view of that series of Frigidaire brands.
At the moment I am focusing on the compressor because when you hear fans running they tend to hide the sounds from compressor. I want to see if the relay or start/run capacitor are OK first. Please review and respond, Appliance 911, Sea Breeze

Frigidaire buzzing and compressor won't start


Hi
I am affraid to say it sounds like the compressor has failed.
If it was thermostat failure then you wouldnt hear any sound from the compressor.

COMPRESSOR NOISE


You probably should replace the start relay before it burns out the compressor terminals.

My Frigidaire #LSR7333PQ has had two compressor failures in 3 yrs


Compressors fail due to:
bad capacitors.
bad start relay.
low voltage.
refrigerant leaks.
refrigerant restrictions.
bad fan motor.
to name a few problems.
You should be under a 5 year seealed system prts and labor warranty.
Call him back out.

Fridge / Freezer no longer cooling FR26R4A


  • usually if the compressor is bad then you will hear the start switch clicking on and off trying to start the compressor. 
  • or when they do run they get very hot and turn off.
  • compressors are $120-230 retail, just for the part.
  •  i would try a new start switch, they are cheap and easy to change.
