Will not freeze or get cold

Frigidaire Crwon series model - F44N21CEW1 will not freeze or become cold. There is power as the light is working and the motor is running. Any idea if it is worth repairing or should I junk it? Thanks in advance!!

Consumers Reports says the average life of a freezer is about 13 years before replacement.

They recommend replacement over repair after 6 to 8 years.

If this is a thermostat or starter relay or
some such it will cost about $100 to have repaired with labour. If the compressor failed or there is a refrigerant leak it will be more.

I don't know how old it is but that should give you your answer.

FRIGIDAIRE FRS6HR4HW2 FRIDGE IS SOMEWHAT COOL BUT FREEZER IS SAME TEMP AS FRIDGE I HAVE POWER TO THE EVAP FAN BUT FAN IS NOT WORKING COULD THIS CAUSE THE FREEZER NOT TO GET COLD ENOUGH TO FREEZE


Yes, if your evap is fully frosted, and the fan is not working. The frosted evap will keep it cold but since the fan cant move the cold air from the evap it'll be cold, but not as cold as you'd like.

I have a frigidaire Crown Series that cools but does not get cold enough to freeze, what should I check?


Feel the compressor to make sure it is not so hot you cannot keep your hand on the top. Doing this also confirms that the compressor is running. If the compressor is running continious and freezer is not freezing well like it should it may indicate a Freon leak and that will require you to be looking for a replacement freezer, Thanks Sea Breeze I just don't have much to offer on an older freezer because when constructed the people that made them use steel tubing and the steel tubing tends to rust allowing leaks to happen in places that cannot be reached or repaired, Let me know what you find.

Where is the thermostat located on a frigidaire gallery model GLRS2642AQ6 Electrolux side by side. Keeps freezing up even after turning down both side to just cold.


Hi this is most likely the damper assembly not the thermostat, the damper assemly is on the left side of the refrigerator compartment in the very top corner up there, sometimes depending on the model this damper runs 3/4 of the length of the left wall there. This entire assembly needs changed.

Water dispenser not working & fridge and freezer not getting cold


okay, most likely, your problem is your fan motor, its making your evaporator becoming a block of ice freezing your water lines but its not circulating the cold air through your refrigerator. remove the panel from inside the freezer and see if it has become a big white block of ice and the fan motor is turning. some fan motors will not work with the door open so you must manually press the light switch and see if the fan is blowing air.
if fan blades are not turning, replace the fan motor. but if it is blowing air and there's a big block of ice, unplug your fridge and let it thaw out. if after melting your fridge is running again, there's something wrong with your defrost system. that means check and replace your defrost heating element, defrost thermostat and or defrost timer.
i hope that helps with your problem. good luck!

Freezer not getting cold enough to freeze.


First culprit could be a refrigerant leak and needs to be charged. If the evaporator is frozen solid it won't push enough sub zero air to freeze. Call a trusted ac&or repair man
