Question about Frigidaire FRT125GW (12 cu. ft.) Top Freezer Refrigerator
Is it normally for a fridge freezer to be "off" for a couple of hours before it comes back on? My f/freezer always works 30 mins on and then 60 mins off and so on. Week ago started playing up. Where the f/freezer would stay on for say 2 hours and then turn off BUT it would also stay off for 2-3 hours before coming back on. F/freezer has been switched off for a week in case anything was frozen. Switched back on not its still not working, meaning 2 hours on and then over 2 hours off with the temperatures rising in fridge ( up to 10oc) and freezer compartment but still not switching on. I can manually turn the dial but doesn't want to seem to do it automatically properly.

Nortron, sounds like the system is restricted. I have seen a lot of these Frigidaires in the past 5 years with this problem. You should have a even frost pattern through the entire evaporator. I have been changing the compressor, evaporator and heat exchanger on these models. Your system on this refer is covered for 5 years, parts and labor for this failure. Here's hoping it's under 5 years. If it is, make sure all three componets mentioned above are changed out, otherwise the same deal is going to happen again down the road. Catriver.

sound like a compresser relay/overload ,uplug the refigerator remove back cover, remove relay that is on the compressor and check it by shaking it , it should not rattle. if it does replace it..

IS THIS A AUTOMATIC DEFROST UNIT? IF SO THEN THE DEFROST CLOCK PROBABLY IS BAD, LOOK UNDERNEITH BY THE COMPRESSOR AND THERE SHOULD BE A SQUARE ISH BAX THAT HAS 4 WIRES COMING OUT OF IT. TAKE AND TURN THE RED KNOB WITH A SCREW DRIVWER UNTIL THE COMPRESSOR COMES ON. IF THAT WAS NOIT IT TAKE A HAIR DRIER AND HEAT UP THE LIDUID LINE DRIER SOME TO TRY TO CLEAR THE RESTRICTION ON THE DRIER. GOOD LUCK (SORRY ABOUT ALL CAPS BUT GOT TIRED OF CORECTING THE SPELLING) NOT SHOUTING

the drain on the unit is probebly clogged up or frozen . take and manually defrost the unit and check the drain line to see if i0ts clogged up.

smell is urea,it is a gas produced when plastics get hot,it will go away in time,but also check the drain for a blockage (syringe with clorine bleach)and if fitted, wipe out the condensate pan with clorine
last make sure the door seals fit all round as iif not flush any condensate will drip out from the front bottom.
