Compressor not working for Frigidaire Model # FRS23R4AW6

My Frigidaire Model # FRS23R4AW6 is not working.
The fan next to the compressor is working.
I replaced both the relay/capacitor but still the compressor is not starting.
I did a ohm reading of the compressor, it looks good:
C-S = 9.3
C-R = 4.1
S-R = 5.7

Is there another test or check before I gave up on this frig? Thanks

Not cooling at all,compressor & fan next to compressor not working


Hello friend, thank you for your post!

It sounds like there could be an issue within the sealed system or control panel of your Frigidaire refrigerator. Are the lights still showing on the front and inside your appliance? If they are, I would recommend a reset to the refrigerator, which you can do by unplugging the appliance or flipping the household circuit breaker for ten minutes. Once you have performed the reset if the compressor or fan does not start up I would contact a professional to accurately diagnose your refrigerator to determine the root cause. -Matt

Refrigerator Frigidaire model FRS6R5ESBY. My compressor won't turn on but I found the fan motor not working. Will the motor be the fix or is there a way to test before I spend the money?


A good test method is buy a rco-410 hard start relay. Once you have it, cut an old plug off something and leaving the plug intact, splice the two wires at the cut end with the two wires on thet really that don't have metal ends. Once that is done securly, unplug the fridgem take the really off the compressor and hook up the home made compressor tester. Once plugged in if the compressor is good it will come on, it it doesn't it's bad. This works becuase you remove any variables that are present with the machine hooked up normal.

I have a Frigidaire Model FRT18s6aws year model 06. It will thaw an d refreeze food and ice on and off. When it thaws it seems the fan is working fine and is triing to get cold and the next day everything...


When your unit thaws - do you hear the compressor kicking on at the start of a cycle? If not, maybe the compressor relay it hanging up somehow. Or the compessor capacitor is malfunctioning. It is NOT a compressor problem though.

If you are capable of getting to the defrost heater circuit, you should check the defrost thermostat and timer (if there is not ice build up behind the panel. If the defrost circuit is active too long it could cause that condition - but you defrost heater is not the problem unless there is an ice build up.

My freezer is no longer freezing food- why?


I looked up your model. This is a self defrosting model which features a fan motor for the compressor and the evaporator. If either of them 2 fans is out then the freezer won't work well. That is the first thing I would check. If only one of the fans is gone out then replace that fan and rock on. If Both fans and compressor are not working then hunt down the timer. It may be stuck in defrost mode. The timer is nestled up behind the cold control and light bulb inside the nice little console in the fresh food compartment. Look under the console for a hole about the size of a dime. Inside that hole a timer advance. Use a flat blade screwdriver to advance the timer till you hear the compressor and fans come on. If the timer is fine the next thing to look for is ice buildup inside the evaporation compartment. If you see that then the defrost heater and termination thermostat needs to be replaced.
If both fans operate ok but the compressor is not working then I would remove and inspect the compressor relay for wear. The cold control would be the next thing to take a look at. If it is open the compressor and fans will not run but the inside light will work.

Compressor doesn't run


If the fan located next to the compresor works that means that the compresor relay is bad or the compresor burned out.

Frigidaire side by side model #FRS6R5ESBC


Fan rotation is determined by the motor direction of rotation. Cool air should pass over the compressor then over the condenser. Look from the motor end for the direction of rotation. Drive to driven. Motor is the drive and fan blade is the driven.
