Beaumark fridge freezer is going on and off


We have a 7 yr old Beaumark fridge and even on the coldest fridge setting the freezer may or may not kick back on..then very noisy for about an hour..then it works fine for a week or so and then the same problem. Is this a fixable issue or is it time for a new fridge? It is a frost free fridge but, all this up and down temperature puts ice in most of the freezer food.

Check the condensor coils for dust, try to see if the condensor fan is blowing air over the coil, check inside the freezer to assure the inside fan is circulating air, and if the "noise" is coming from either of the fan motors, they will need replaced by a service technician.

    My Beaumark 31491-1 is seven years old and the fridge fails to cool sufficiently because the fan gets block in ice build-up on the coils. This is the fifth time in 7 years. Now I am told that all of the styrofoam insulation must be replaced and not sure the right part can be ordered.

While on holiday, leave it on 7. When you get back, get the thermostat changed, but only after checking the following:

Fridge/Freezer both only cool and not cold/freezing


have you checked the rear wall of the freezer?if its frosted over,remove the rear panel to check the evaporator coil,if its iced-up it cannot cool the unit properly,if so de-ice with a hair dryer,then check the defrost heater under the coil that is suppose to keep the coil ice free,if its open it cant heat to defrost,if it has continuity and is good,then check the defrost control be it timed or adaptive for proper operation

Does not stay cold. Even with


Sounds like the compressor, or a refrigerant leak. Being a year old I would call Frigidaire and try to get it fixed or replaced under warranty.

Noisy refrigerator/freezer


The freezer fan motor , being noisey , is probably the cause for the food/drink problem . It should be replaced . Pt # 54482-10 is the part number for the motor . However , on your model , it looks like the bottom freezer panel , has to be removed , to replace the motor . The motor costs about $70.00 . Do not know if you should try this yourself , may need an experienced repairman , to remove the divider strip , to remove the panel .

Refrigerator top rack is warm. Temperature shows 65 degrees


if your freezer can make ice and the ice is dry, the problem is simply air flow into the refig section. A very common cause for a service call that wasnt needed for reefers is the settings. One setting OFF 1-10 usually, operates the compressor. The remaining setting will say , for colder freezer or similar, It opens a little flapper door between the freezer and the fridge section. If you set that one to max or coldest freezer it will actually starve out the fridge section for air ,and you get a cold freezer and warmer box! It happens everytime someone has the problem , its too warm! they peg both controls to coldest! The compressor will coll the freezer sufficiently even if set to 1 and the fridge should be cool too if the setting isnt pegged to coldest setting thus closing down fridge air and making the freezer colder which isnt ever required!
