Check condenser is clear and clean, and fan working. If all else as should be, suspect becoming short of refrigerant

What is the normal temperature to set the fridge and freezer


  • A frigidaire should have a temperature of between thirtyseven degrees farenheit (three degrees centigrade) and forty degrees farenheit (five degrees centigrade). Any higher and the food will go off, any lower and you'll lose nutrients and fresh food can be ruined.
  • The ideal freezer temperature is zero degrees farenheit (negative eighteen degrees centigrade) which will store food safely and stop bacteria forming
  • It's a good idea to buy a fridge thermometer and check the temperature if you are not sure it the thermostat is working efficiently
  • If you adjust the thermostat, it generally will take twentyfour hours to adjust the temperature

Hi, i have an Electrolux ER7198S side-by-side fridge. there are not cooling enough.. someday cool someday not, may i know why and how to slove the problem? thanks


Make sure there is about 3 inches of clearance behind the fridge from the wall. Move the fridge away and check that the condenser coils are not covered heavily in dust. This can reduce the fridges efficiency.

You may also want to open and check the inside panel of the fridge to observe the evaporator coils and defrost tubes. If those tubes are burnt out (they are basically long light bulbs) you may get a build up of frost and ice that stops the flow of air thought the evaporator. This will cause the fridge to become warmer, up until complete failure.

We have an older model Danby D730, it is freezing on the back part inside of the fridge. We realize there is no more around, is there anything that we can do to save it.


Sounds like defrost problem. Could be fan motor, Defrost timer,or defrost heater. Try turning off for 8hr to melt ice then turn back on.If it runs and maintains temp for 24hr check and repair defrost Problem.

as the fridge gets older the gas gets less efficient so regasing the unit may work, but, due to its age, you may find replacement more cost effective...and more efficient.

Motor runs, freezer defrosting and fridge won't cool


If you have frozen coil at the back of the freezer section, then the defrost thermostat is usually failing. Allow the fridge to defrost completely overnight. If the fridge restarts cooling immediately after defrost, then the problem was the defrost system. In that case the fridge will stop cooling again in a couple of days, as soon as the evaporator coils restart freezing and the condenser goes under stress with the whole cooling system loosing efficiency.

Ice maker not working


Hello bnelson488,

Since the ice maker is erationally starting and stopping at it's own leisure.

1.We must first try to turn off the fridge.

2.unplug it or if you can not reach the plug you can turn off the breaker to the fridge also, for 5 minutes!
After this you restart the fridge and see if the system reset it self.
This is a common way to reset some units!

If nothing works then perhaps the ice maker needs to be replaced.

How old the fridge?
Let me know how it works and if you have any questions.

Please remember to give a rating before you finish..
bless you
Huuum.


Here is an interesting article I just read.


Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.
