    This does not answer my question at all.
    All I want to know is what the flashing lights mean - I assume it is some sort of fault diagnosis code.

    Not really helpful. Had already solved problem. Not used to this low level of fault diagnosis from digital display (am UK Air Con engineer - used to commercial chiller plant with full diagnostic available in a manual or at display).

Try replacing the compressor socket relay, if problem still persist you have to replace the filter connected to it, of which you might not be able to do, cause replacing the tube filter means injecting freon after replacing it, an experienced ref tech with tools can do that, he will bring along a small freon tank filled with freon and the tools necessary for it.

Fridgidaire refrigerator flashing error code 4


From what I remember a flashing 4 means "damper error". Send your model number found inside or on the outside of the fresh food section, The air damper is found between the freezer and fresh food section and regulates temperature in the fresh food section by opening wide for things that warm up your fresh food section example would be opening the door and letting warm air inside . The damper then closes to keep the right temperature. If you have questions please ask, Thanks Sea Breeze

Can you tell me what a flashing # 4 means on the fresh food display,when I try to set temp.the flashing # 4 keeps coming back. the fridge temp. is too cold and freezes everything.


Hello Bryce,
I found a manual, although I cannot be sure it is for your exact model, it is located HERE. This is what is stated under "Temperature Adjustment"
IF TEMPERATURE DISPLAYS FLASH... If ever you see both temperature displays continously flashing, it may indicate that the control system has detected a performance problem. Call your service representative, who can interpret the flashing message. To maintain temperatures, a fan circulates air in the refrigerator and freezer compartments. For good circulation, do not block cold air vents with food items.
This is located under "Turning the Cooling System On and Off"
TURNING THE COOLING SYSTEM ON AND OFF You can disable the cooling system in your refrigerator by pressing the On/Off button located on the left side of the temperature control panel. To ensure that you do not accidentally turn off the cooling system, the button does not work unless you press and hold it for three seconds. Once you disable the cooling system, all refrigeration to the freezer and fresh food compartments stops. To turn the cooling system back on, you must again press and hold the On/Off button for three more seconds.
If the manual I selected is not the one for your particular machine, there are others located HERE. There are various ones only differing by a "upgrade" letter on the end, perhaps for different models of different manufacturers, produced by the same company.
I hope this is of some help
Joe

I got a frigidaire phs66ejsb0 and in the digital dial of fresh food temp the error code 4 is flashing what could it be


Hi,

As far as i know this means the damper failed the start up test which is producing the error code 4. It could mean the replacement of a circuit board that controls the temperature as the H2O filter may have leaked and shorted it out.

You can disable the cooling system in your refrigerator by pressing the On/Off button located on the left side of the temperature
control panel. To ensure that you do not accidentally turn off the cooling system, the button does not work unless you press and
hold it for three seconds.
Once you disable the cooling system, all refrigeration to the freezer and fresh food compartments stops.
To turn the cooling system back on, you must again press and hold the On/Off button for three more seconds and see if that resolves the problem.

If not then you will need to contact Frigidaire themselves for advice on how to resolve this problem or to have and engineer come and take a look at it for you.

My freezer is working fine but by refrigerator is not working. how can that be with a maytag side by side?


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Coils keep freezing up its 4 years old


Iced-over evaporator coils, accompanied by a non-chilled fresh food compartment, happened in my GE side-by-side (model GSS20IEMDWW). For me, the problem was caused by a faulty temp sensor in the fresh food side. That sensor never signalled the computer that the temp in the fresh food side was cool enough, so the compressor ran constantly.

Since the compressor was running constantly, the evaporator coils (back wall of the freezer compartment) eventually iced over (took about a week). Since the fan that draws air over the evaporator coils could no longer move any air (due to the icing), the temperature in the fresh food side got warmer as well.

The fresh food side is chilled through a hole with a motorized door at the top of the dividing wall between compartments which opens when the fresh food side needs cooling. If no air is moving in the freezer compartment, temps in the fresh food compartment climb.

I replaced the temp sensor in the fresh food side and solved the problem for a while.

I bough a pair of thermometers at a kitchen store and put one in the freezer compartment and one in the fresh food compartment so that I could occasionally check to see if it made sense for the compressor to be running (ie, was it really necessary to be trying to cool either compartment, or were they already cold enough).

About six months later I had the coil icing problem again. This time the fresh food side seemed cool enough (according to the thermometer as well as the fact that the flapper door would close, indicating that the computer knew to not try to additionally cool the fresh food side).

The thermometer indicated that the temp in the freezer compartment was cold enough, but the system computer continued to run the compressor. So I replaced both temp sensors in the freezer compartment - which solved the problem again. (My fridge is about seven years old.)

If you are going to replace any of the temp sensors, replace them all under the principle of "if one failed, the rest will soon fail too".

Use a website like www.partselect.com to look up a parts diagram for your fridge and see if you can order just the temp sensors. Other websites (www.repairclinic.com and www.appliancepartsworldwide.com) may also be helpful. I have no affiliation with any of the sites I just mentioned - I'm just posting them as resources.

I have a frigidaire sisde by side refrigerator model # FSC23F7TDW. My Temperature control is reading the the freezer & fresh food temp in centigrade. How do I get the Temp display to read in...


Same Guest as above posting this ... By the way, I have a FLSC238DS5 ... I spent 45 minutes on phone w/Frigidaire this afternoon (Phone#: 706-860-4110 Option 1 --> then Option 3). Didn't get anywhere. They say there are 3 solutions that should change it from C to F: 1) In between LED readouts for "Freezer Temp" and "Fresh Food Temp" there is a mode button that is hidden under the plate that you can press w/your finger OR 2) Hold "Fresh Food Temp" Up Arrow Key down, within 5 Seconds press "Freezer Temp" Up Arrow Key 3 times and it should change C to F or vice verse. Didn't work for me so she said 3rd option was to have a service tech come and diagnose. She said there would be a charge. I am not paying to have somebody come here to resolve this issue. That is when I asked her to escalate it to a supervisor which she did. Hopefully, I get a call back & a solution. Stay tuned ...
