Which motor? There are three! But I will bet it is your starting components. Called start/run/overload relay that attaches to the compressor.

What is the cu ft for frigidaire upright freezer mfu21m3gw1


Thank you for your post, friend!

I see you would like to know the cubic footage of your Frigidaire freezer. Based off the model number you have provided it appears that you have a 21 cubic foot freezer. Hopefully this information is helpful. -Matt

Frigidaire Freezer acting goofy


Make sure everything is clean of debris and I would personally see if you could cool the area around the unit. Maybe use a fan or turn the air down in that room. Humidity and hot temps kill a unit's sealed system.

FRIGIDAIRE FRS20ZRG STOPPED WORKING AFTER MOVING IT, LIGHTS STOPPED THE NEXT DAY


It may have been defrosting on a timed cycle when the compressor stopped. If any water was present at the time, it may have seeped into the electrics. Check the fuse and you have power to the on/off switch and thermostat.. If fuse blown, check all is dried out before plugging back in.

I have a Frigidaire freezer LFFU1424DW not freezing. Came home to melting ice and thawed food. I heard clicking noise like a fan but goes off after a few seconds. Help please.


first of all unplug that freezer and wait for 15 mins. move it five feet from the wall. after 15mins, plug it back and kick in compressor at the same time!!!! remember plug and kick at the same time. the ckicking noise come from the starting relais. this says that the compressor has a problem. If it doesn't work ; you will have to call a service person who will replace the compressor for you.

Have upright Frigidaire freezer, about 2 yrs old, that quit running. Local repair guy replaced part with "3 n/1 Start" solid state relay overload capacitor combination. Worked great for 2 weeks then...


Good day,
That's a no-no. Your compressor carries a 5 year warranty from the factory. However, if anything is altered on it the warranty is voided. You've got an issue with this guy.

Frigidaire cf-5f-lx2 1989 modle


Greetings!
Since the overload was good when tested, check also the electric current if the current is in the right voltage.
If the problem still a raise, it is now the motor compressor that have problem. The motor it self cannot start or hard starting.
Thanks.
