After you set the temp (at 34) the refrigerator display changes to show the current temp inside your refrig. (apparently it was 65) As the unit runs, this display will lower until arriving at the set temp.

It keeps going through a start up process (clicking and the fan come on then off quickly) at first staying steady then getting longer in the start up process.


Hi David, thank you for your inquiry. I understand that your Frigidaire Refrigerator is cycling on and off more than you expected. Todays newer refrigerator's have to meet Dept of Energy (DOE) specifications for energy savings. Typically the fan and compressor runs to get the fresh food temp down to 34*, the compressor shuts off and the fan runs for thirty more minutes and shuts down. The fan will repeatedly cycle on and off to keep the temp down as close to 34*. Once the temp in the fresh food hits 40* for more than two minutes the compressor cycles back on again. This will cause the temps in the fresh food to dwell between 35-40 and in the freezer section between 8-15. Hope this helps! -JK

What do I keep the temp on the door? Is 37 correct


Hi,

You can keep the temp at any range you wish. Normally 34-38 is the normal range. I personally keep mind at 34, but some people wish to be 38. Most units have a 38 as a normal setting for energy usage savings, but again its personal preference. I hope this helps

Frigidaire refrigerator with a broken freezer


He is correct. The temp in the refrig controls how often and for how long the refrig runs. Lets say the temp in your garage is 34 degrees, and you have your refrig set to 36 degrees: The refrig will never run, the fresh foods section will cool to 34, and the freezer will warm to 34. Even if the temp is 45 in the garage and you set the fresh foods to be 33, the refrig will not need to run long enough and often enough to keep the freezer temp cold enough. You will most likely need to have the ambient room temp at least 55 degrees to get satisfactory refrigerator performance. Insulating the refrig will not help. (by the way, outdoor beverage vending machines use an internal heater in cold weather to prevent liquid beverages inside from freezing,..... so using that info, you could put a low wattage heater in your refrig to make your refrig run enough to make the freezer section work. The %&#* with that, just move it into the house!)

MY traulsen 20010 Microprocesor reads 34 degrees but inside the temperature is 20 degrees .It freezes everything help please.


Your temp sensor is most likely the trouble. It is reading a false temp so it keeps the unit running trying to reach set temp. I would go there first as it is much cheaper than replacing the controller.

The last couple of days our heat pump will not cool below 80 degrees even if we set the temp to 65. The unit keeps running. last week the heat pump worked very well. The unit is 10 years old.


Check the outside unit. Feel the larger line to see if it is cold. Is the condensor dirty. If you have a way to measure temp. Take the return air at the filer and the closest grille temp and subtract. It should be between 19 to 23 degress. If not you have a problem. Could be refrigerant or some other problem. Either way you need to get it checked out by a service tech. Ask for free estimate that way you are going to know how much it cost before hand. Rus

What temp should the fridge and freezer each be?


According to FDA safetey specs bacteria can grow at 40 to 140 F degrees .Refrigeration must be below this number but above 32F to keep from freezing. I maintain commercial refrigeration and they run at 34 to 38 F degrees. I have deep freeze set at -10F which keeps ice cream very solid but can go up to +2 F which renders softer ice cream...

Lg frig side is warm but freezer side is good


You are setting your fresh foods side to 34 but the display will go back to showing the actual temp. It is still set at 34. The refrig should be able to reach the 34 setting, so although 40 is an OK temp for a refrig, it is not what you set it to and you are definitely having a problem with the unit. Instead of starting to go through a long list of checks, I would advise you to call for warranty service, as the unit is only 3 months old.
Please don't bother rating this solution, as anything but a FixYa will lower my score. Thanks.
