Your defrost system is bad. Replace the defrost thermostat and defrost heater in the freezer.

Intermittently starts beeping 3 times and some time later (hours to days) stops cooling. Works again, for a week or so, after unplugging for 10 minutes or so


Hi, your suggestion is good. Also consider an overbuild up of frost which the autodefrost can't cope with. I don't know what to suggest you do about it apart from minimising the moisture content of the food that you put into it.
Just seen your post regarding replacing the control unit yourself. I think that it's feasible if you have a reasonable amount of experience. However, the final decision is yours, I cannot suggest that this is something that you should do.

Model FRT045GB


Good Morning Jr. Riojas,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire compact refrigerator, model# FRT045GB, and it not cooling. I also see that you have reset your refrigerator, by unplugging it, and it works fine for two weeks, then you have to repeat resetting it. I suggest contacting either the manufacturer or your local authorized technician for further assistance. They should be able to better assist as to why your refrigerator cools for a few weeks and then you have to unplug it for it to cool a couple more. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

If the condenser fan is defective and stopping while you don't see the fan stop it will cause the compressor to overheat and stop. The other possibility is a defective=> 12784415 Main Control Board or JAZZ Board A defective relay on this board will cause the same symptoms, Sea Breeze

Exercise your warranty IMMEDIATELY since you just bought it! If you bought this used, you LIKELY bought someone else's problem. The problem is likely in the digital effects area... probably a bad cable contact... but if under warranty DO NOT mess with it... return it for replacement or repair.

My Magic Chef refrigerator has stopped cooling. When I unplug it for a few days, and then plug it in, it will work for about a week, and then quit cooling again. The freezer is perfect, and continues to...


The most likely cause is that the defrost system is not working. After about a week it builds up with enough frost to stop the cold air from getting to the refrigerator section. The most common problem is the defrost timer, defrost heater or defrost thermostat.

Freezer works frige dont unplug for an hour then it works .


I would suggest check the coils to make sure they are clean . Also check the fan which cools the compressor to make sure it is working . When you unplug , it gives the compressor time to cool down a bit , but after it restarts , it will get hot again and stop cooling .

OK, it sounds like you have a defrost problem. When left unplugged for a few days the frost melted off the evaporator (the cooling coils behind the freezer wall) but after you ran it again, the coils blocked the air flow again, usually happens after a week or so, depending on # of door openings, humidity in home, etc. Most likely you have a burnt out defrost heater.

Refrigerator buzzing for 10 seconds every 4 or 5 minutes


Buzzing is usually a fan, like one in the freezer, or back bottom - for cooling the freon. The compressor over-heat usually will make a single click (off) and a few minutes later a click (on). If the fan in the freezer stops working well, the freezer will frost up and the fridge section will not be cold enough.
