Question about Frigidaire FRT17G4B Top Freezer Refrigerator
We have a rental property and while we were on holidays they took out the fridge and started renting a bigger but older fridge from a rental company. They are saying that they lost 200.00 worth of groceries and when the repair man (whose company name and number they can't remember) came and told them the compresssor went and to buy a new one because the old one would cost to much to repair.
I went today and plugged in the fridge. After a couple hours the fridge and freezer read 5 degrees celcius and -13. The motor seemed to be running fine.
We've had false alarms from these people before, and while we like them very much I don't really feel like buying a new fridge unless I actually have to.
The fridge is 3 years old. Frigidaire.

Hi just wondering if you figured out the problem with your Samsung fridge yet.
It is definately a problem with the defrost part of the fridge. After approximately 4 to 10 hours dependent on many different factors it enters into defrost mode to get rid of any excess ice in both the fridge and the freezer. During the defrost stage the compressor will not run. If any fault occurs during the defrost stage the fridge will not restart unless you turn it off and back on again which restes the pcb and takes it out of defrost mode and the timer starts again.
Please let me know how you went with it.

SOURCE: Freezer not cold enough
Begin by turning the freezer temperature setting dial to a lower setting. Then wait a few hours to see if your problem is fixed. If that does not correct the problem you probably need to have the coolant system recharged. That requires special equipment so you will have to call in a repair person.
