SOURCE: Not cool at all!

If the compressor is running you should be cooling unless there is a major loss of refrigerant. What we do for these complaints is to first let the refer run for a few hours then pull the interior rear panel off the freezer section back wall and check the frost pattern on the coils. It should be a nice white frost pattern all the way across the coils (no bare alum. showing and no mass of ice either). If you don't have that pattern then there is a sealed system issue. If you have a massive block of ice all over the coils then you have a defrost cycle issue (not getting proper air circ. due to the block-o-ice thing). Let us know what you find... oh, you can sometimes find the leak by looking for oily residue from the compressor lubricating oil (it leaks out where the gas does also).

SOURCE: Frigidaire model ftr18b freezer works, fridge is only cool

Info relating specifically to the Frigidaire FRT18B5ABB:

1.Refrigerator unplugged remove the bottom back panel. (Access cover with label. The rectangular shaped panel on the back, at the bottom) Place the screws in a container.
Also remove the Kickplate Grille in the front, and the defrost pan.

2.Use the wand tip on your vacuum cleaner, and vacuum this area out. Pay special attention to the condenser coils, and the fan. Use care as you don't want to bend the fan blades. After you have vacuumed up as much as possible, see if your vacuum has where you can attach the hose to blow air through it. An air compressor, hose, and air nozzle would be REAL handy right now! Blow the condenser coils, and all areas clean of any gunk. (Hair, spider webs, etc.) If this is not feasible for you, you'll need some sort of long, thin, dust 'bunny', and have to dislodge this 'gunk' physically. Then vacuum.

3.BE SURE to replace the bottom back panel, (Access Cover)! It is a VERY necessary item! If your fridge doesn't have one at present, make a temporary one of cardboard, and tape it on. This access cover is needed.

If your refrigerator side is only cool, and your freezer is cold, you may have a problem with the Cold Control, (Temperature Control), or the Defrost Timer. (Timer-Defrost)

SOURCE: Refrigerator not cooling

We had a similar problem - it was the compressor start device. Ordered a new one from repairclinic.com, and it works great now. The old start device rattled when we shook it. We opened it up and found lots of burnt little bits. Check to see if your compressor kicks on & off a lot. Ours would run only about 10-15 seconds, then go off for a minute or two - then back on for a few seconds. If that is happening, it could be the start device. Hope this helps.

Frigidaire refrigerator wont cool or freeze


Hi Teddy,

It's my understanding that your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# MRS20WRGW2, has power with the lights coming on, it's just not cooling in the freezer or refrigerator portion. Since you are receiving power to the appliance, I would check to see if you can hear the compressor running. If the compressor is not running that might be why your refrigerator is not cooling. Still, I would contact a local authorized technician, for a full diagnosis. This way it can be determined what exactly is the cause of the NO COOL issue.

-Best Regards-

We have a frigidaire model number frt045gb upright freestanding fridge and the light is on inside but the motor isnt running,it is warm in the freezer and fridge part


Since the light comes on, but nothing else runs, check the defrost timer. If it is stuck in the defrost cycle, the light will come on, but nothing else works.

Hi this is either a shot compressor or start relay for the compressor, relays are $25-50.00 you could try that first if ifts the compressor your looking at $500+ to have it changed.

Frigidaire model cfmv156fmc allows programming, lights work but when hitting go wont turn on yet timer is counting down.


If the inside light comes on when you try to cook, but the turntable and internal cooling fan do NOT, then that's a bad bottom door switch or that switch's mount.

See this helpful text file.

If the inside light, turntable, and internal cooling fan DO all come on when you try to cook, but it does not cook, then you have a bad relay or connection on the control circuit board, which we can repair for $39.95. Details here.

We have the service manual and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

Fridge powers on but does not cool


Try pressing light blub switch whist doors are open as fan will only start when doorsclosed. If compreesor is running but not chilling it is either the compreesor has gone and wont be pumping or it has lost its refigerant. Hope this helps
