Question about Frigidaire FRT21P5A Top Freezer Refrigerator
I have a Frigedaire FRT21P5A that is about 7 years old and was mostly used as a 2nd fridge. Last week it just stopped getting cold. The fan runs, the lights are on, but it just won't blow cold air.
Can you tell me what part needs replacing and if my reasonably handy husband can replace the part?
The only thing i can thing of is the start switch it may be burned out.It is located on the compressor.If your compressors running and there is no cold air in freezer part and fridge you may have a sealed system leak.Open the rear bottom panel while the fan is running and feel the compressor if it is hot and it is running you may need a repair person to come look at it.also forgot to say is if you have frost bult up in rear freezer panel that would indicate it is froze up and will need a manual defrost .After done that the defrost timer may need replaceing it is locatedaround the control and light area.hope i fixya :)

Same unit same problem, called the company,, BTW dont count on them , no help got run around, they reffered me to the most expensive repair place int he state (we know).. so out to the curb it goes for scrap.. freezer gets to 30 maybe and fridge.. well lets say it aint cold.
got a 45 yr old unit inthe garage that works good.. buy another? no way!..
with their customer service.. maybe a GE this time..

Most times some times if you unplug and plug back in elect the turmostate will fail. might need replacing if not unpluged and then pluged back in possible low refrigerant hope this helps
