    Then should I just replace the compressor?



    In the mean time, I sappose I should unplug it to prevent the fan from going also?



    Thanks!

Humming noise would be your compressor going bad. The noise from the fan is because they are over working to try and keep everything cool

    It is up to you on compressor replacement, it will have to be done but the money it costs is up to 500 dollars for repair. Yes I would unplug the system, so the fans do not keep running.
    If you are satisfied please rate. Thank you

How to lower freezer temperature


Not sure what you mean by the freezer too cold? The freezer section should be at or below 0 degrees C or 32 degree F. if its working properly. If the FF section is too warm and your temp control door or vent is at max cold either the vent is not moving (stuck in the closed position) or the fan in the freezer is not working.

Milk and other items keep freezing in my side by side fridigaire


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Wrap all food together in blankets to insulate. But first check for a kink at the bottom of the freezer door where the water line comes up trough the door ,disconnect and press for water. If not check at filter if all fails; replace water valve.

Check the fan in the freezer side to make sure it is running. If the fan is running and you have frost, then you have a defrost problem, Heater is not coming on to melt ice. If fan is not running replace fan.

Water leaking frigidaire frs23h5as


yes remove the rear panel in the freezer where you see the drain hole. Clear the ice from the drain hole. It will take a while for the water to start to drain because the ice is deep in the insulation. A small tube is helpful to draw some hot water in and stick in in the drain hole and squirt the hot water down in the hole.
