Question about Frigidaire FRT18G4A Top Freezer Refrigerator

2 Answers

Transported a fridge on its side, waited 24hrs, plugged in.

Now its plugged in and both fridge and freezer are not getting cold or even cool for that matter. Its been plugged in for about 24hrs now. Can hear the fridge running but both bulbs were not working in the fridge even when I replaced them, not sure if that means anything.

I just bought the fridge after going without for 3 weeks now.
If anyone has any answers they would be greatly appriciated. I was told the fridge is about 3yrs old and from what i can see it is a Matag Plus.

Thank-You

Transporting frig on side probably damaged the compressor due to the oil inside draining from bottom. Do you know if the bulbs were working before you purchased? If they were you may have damaged the door switch, easy fix, just replace. Compressor replacement should be left to a pro. Probably looking at a couple hundred. One other thought is you might have caused a gas leak during transporting, another job for a pro.

My KTM3900WB fridge/freezer is not freezing and cooling in the fridge. The light goes and can hear the motor is running.


You are either low on freon refrigerant, or your compressor is frozen (usually due to low freon) or your compressor is bad. the motor will cycle on and off even though the compressor is not working. the refrigerator away from the wall and look compressor will be a nerf football sizedand usually black cylinder. It could be very hot or cold/frozen. can also unplug the refrigerator leave it for a few hours and plug it back in if it work you are low on freon. You need a repairman

Cant Get fridge and freezer to cool to correct temp


According to the picture posted the freezer defrost is stuck on. Why it would not get cold enough. Contact a local appliance repairman and get professional help as this should require control board repair/replace.

I have a zanussu fridge


Re. Zanussi ZK87/46EFS Fridge Freezer

The same symptom occurred in our fridge freezer. The fridge compartment warmed up whilst the freezer compartment continued to keep temperature.

The cause of our problem was diagnosed as a frozen sensor that controls a flap, that controls the flow of cold air from the freezer compartment up into the fridge compartment. We were advised to power off the fridge freezer (removing all food and trays from the freezer unit first), and to leave it to defrost for 24hrs. We needed to place a few towels on the floor of the freezer compartment to soak up the melt water. After 24hrs we followed the power up instructions in the manual (versions are available online if you have lost yours). Within a few minutes it was obvious that the fridge compartment was being cooled – Problem solved :)
