Question about Frigidaire FRS26R4A Side by Side Refrigerator

2 Answers

Compressor bad I have a 5 1/2 year old refrigerator and the compressor has gone bad. should I replace or buy new? About 1 1/2 months ago it stopped cooling and I put a hard start (3 in 1) on it, so I guess the compressor was going bad then. Now I have tested with an ohm meter and the compressor has grounded. Could putting the 3 in 1 on it messed up anything else? Any advice? Thanks!!!!!

It's really up to you, to decide whether you want your refrigerator to be fix or replaced and buy a new one. You need to calculate the cost between repair cost and the price of a new refrigerator. Which one is suited your budget plus the convenient of the trouble free unit for many years to come.
Since your refrigerator is about 12 years old already and it's undergo several repair, including the most expensive compressor replacement. I think it's economical to spend for a brand new unit.
New unit have service warranty of about one year, it will take many years before it undergo service repair if you use and treat it with proper care.
Good luck on your decision.

THE REFRIGERTOR JUST STOPPED WORKING IT IS 5 YEARS OLD AND NOT OVER USED


The overload/start relay may have gone bad.
Other possible causes:
* Bad thermostat. Check thermostat
* Defrost timer. Not definite but possibly bad. Last resort.
*Concentrate on getting the compressor to run first.
Once the compressor runs again, observe the refrigerator for a while to confirm cooling.
If there is no cooling after at least forty five minutes, your refrigerant may leaked out.

Do not despair, get the compressor running first. The worst case scenario would be a burnt compressor, and that has not been established yet.

might be your compressor relay gone bad. if the condenser fan was running and no compressor that could be the case. Also could be a bad compressor. you could try installing a 3in1 start kit. cost about $30. if doesn't start with that then compressor is kaput.

I have the same unit, same age, same problem. I'm pretty sure it's the compressor acting up. Figures, just out of warranty. Probably will end up buying a new fridge (No Amana, that's for sure!)

you can have the compressor replaced for around 500usd on the norm. that would be the most inexpensive way to go compared to a new unit , it will come with a 90 day-1 year warranty.
