Neither freezer or refrig will not cool.

The unit twice before stopped cooling but motors still ran. This time has not started cooling again even though motors are running.

The relay switch is plugged into the compressor and you disconnect the OLD relay switch from that and unplug ( I think it was ) 2 smaller plugs from the OLD relay switch and then replug those 2 smaller plug into the NEW relay switch and then plug the NEW relay switch back into the compressor. I hope I made sense.

Electrolux american fridge freezer cooling problem


There is a defrost timer on the unit. It is supposed to come on and melt the ice that forms on the coils in the evaporator. IF you get a lot of ice built up or something is wrong with the timer, it wont melt the ice or it wont come back on to cool the unit.

Have a GE side by side gsh22sgress unit. Child left freezer door open. Unit ran for days (in non-occupied appartment). Meat thawed. Cleaned unit inside with mild soapy mix. Unit runs but will not cool...


Open door let too much moisture into refrigerator. (The cooling coils, behind the back wall of the freezer compartment, are blocked with frost) If you unplug the refrig for a day or so it will work again, or you can take the back wall out from inside the freezer and melt the frost with a hair blower.

Freezer has stuck in defront and stops cooling


Yours has a defrost timer board inside the fresh food compartment and behind the control panel. The only way to stop this is by replacing the board. Part number 4388932 and here is a view of its location inside the fresh food compartment. Just be sure the power is unplugged while working with board.

Frigidaire 7.5 cu.ft. Top Freezer the fridge part doesn't cool; freezer is fine.


It should be under warranty, retry he is probably right, run for 24hrs and it should work ok, if you ever defrost you should turn off for 24hrs and leave the door open. Regards Advisor
