Question about Frigidaire FRS23KR4AW Side by Side Refrigerator
My frigidare FRS23Kr4aw seems to have stopped working. The compressor sounds like its coming on but the fans inside and in the back are not running. Any ideas?
The fans are intermittent and are controlled
through a thermal switch which is not calling for them to run. The
thermal switch is attached to cooling fin on the cool end of the heat
exchanger behind the outside top panel. The fin it is attached to is
not making good contact with the tube and thus does not have good heat
transfer to the switch. I am doubtful it will ever call for the fans to
run unless that thing gets a lot hotter than it is. I am considering

As far as the outside fans are concerned, heat
rises so doing what you can to help it flow is good. Just make sure the
air is going up over the outside coils. On our rig the fans are on top

small white (on ours) connector from the card on the lower rear of the
fridge. An unplugged thermister defaults the fridge to run on high. If
the fridge runs colder with the thermister unplugged, then it may be a
Most probably it might be the problem of the thermister.Or the sensor would have been knocked out during cleaning.
