Question about Frigidaire Refrigerators

Frigidaire fridge/freezer is not working. No power at all. Have checked and changed the fuse & plug. Can it be saved or would it be cheaper to replace with a used replacement?

Hello Jayne Knight, thanks for your post!

Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire refrigerator is not receiving any power. It could be a potential issue with your control panel or power cord. I would recommend contacting a professional technician to come out and properly diagnosis your refrigerator this will help avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Hopefully this information helps to some degree. -Matt

SOURCE: Hotpoint Mistral Frost Free Fridge freezer - fridge not getting cold

We have just had to call out an engineer to get our 1 1/2 year old Hotpoint Graphite Frost Free Fridge Freezer repaired. The fridge had almost entitely stopped cooling even when on high. I was amazed at how easily the problem was sorted. The engineer removed all the basktes from the freezer to access the screws on the inside backpanel of the freezer. Once this panel was removed it was clear that the so called Frost Free doesn't really mean what it says. The ice need to be melted with a bit of simple care. It is obvious that with a bit of care it is easliy a diy job BUT PLEASE BE CAREFUL AND READ THE NEXT PART BEFORE YOU BEGIN TO REMOVE THE ICE> The ice forms around variouys pipes etc and he usecd a screwdriver to help release the ice quicker than waiting for it to defrost and he also used a simple hairdryer to help speed up the process. He had a ntowel and a basin to take care of the water. Next time I would have no problem doing this myself but I would need to leave it a little while to defrost and NOT USE A SCREWDRIVER as I am sure somehow I would puncture a pipe or the wall of the freezer itself and I am quite used to doing the odd bit of DIY. On a difficulkty scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being difficult I would rate the job as about a 3. Hope this helps anyone who reads this about £70.

SOURCE: Frigidaire model ftr18b freezer works, fridge is only cool

Info relating specifically to the Frigidaire FRT18B5ABB:

1.Refrigerator unplugged remove the bottom back panel. (Access cover with label. The rectangular shaped panel on the back, at the bottom) Place the screws in a container.
Also remove the Kickplate Grille in the front, and the defrost pan.

2.Use the wand tip on your vacuum cleaner, and vacuum this area out. Pay special attention to the condenser coils, and the fan. Use care as you don't want to bend the fan blades. After you have vacuumed up as much as possible, see if your vacuum has where you can attach the hose to blow air through it. An air compressor, hose, and air nozzle would be REAL handy right now! Blow the condenser coils, and all areas clean of any gunk. (Hair, spider webs, etc.) If this is not feasible for you, you'll need some sort of long, thin, dust 'bunny', and have to dislodge this 'gunk' physically. Then vacuum.

3.BE SURE to replace the bottom back panel, (Access Cover)! It is a VERY necessary item! If your fridge doesn't have one at present, make a temporary one of cardboard, and tape it on. This access cover is needed.

If your refrigerator side is only cool, and your freezer is cold, you may have a problem with the Cold Control, (Temperature Control), or the Defrost Timer. (Timer-Defrost)

Fisher & paykel fridge e521t no power to fridge,not any power coming to fridge


Did you try an other electrical outlet? Can you test the outlet has any voltage?
does the fridge have an on / off switch? I don't think so, so if nothing works also check the cable and the plug going in the outlet.

After defrosting, the freezer will not start. - Whirlpool fridge.


I presume that you still have got electricity power and the fuse has not 'blown' - if not you could try putting in a new fuse in the plug, sometimes two problems can occur simultaneously.

Otherwise I would leave the door shut to keep the stuff as cold as possible, some may refreeze, or ask a neighbour, friend, or relative to let me have some space in their freezer.

Hi!!

Did you plugg unit back to the wall outlet?? Is that outlet working??? Did the plug got damaged when disconnected?? Check unit's power cable for continuity. Check freezer temp. controls.

You can plug and unplug your unit as many times as you want an you should not have any problems.. Check the above mentioned items, I think it is where your problem resides.

FREEZER WORKS...FRIDGE DOESN'T


Hi,...

In that case you need to check this

  • Make sure the refrigerator is plugged in securely
  • Check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker
  • Test the power outlet for current
  • Inspect the electrical cord for damage
  • Eliminate use of an extension cord, if any is being used
  • Check the outlet voltage
Good luck !!!

Hi just wondering if you figured out the problem with your Samsung fridge yet.
It is definately a problem with the defrost part of the fridge. After approximately 4 to 10 hours dependent on many different factors it enters into defrost mode to get rid of any excess ice in both the fridge and the freezer. During the defrost stage the compressor will not run. If any fault occurs during the defrost stage the fridge will not restart unless you turn it off and back on again which restes the pcb and takes it out of defrost mode and the timer starts again.
Please let me know how you went with it.

Fridge stopped working, freezer still works


Light going out is a separate problem. If the freezer is still working and the fan in the freezer operating check for frost on the back wall. If there is frost on the back wall you have a defrost system problem.
Possible open heater, bad timer, or defrost thermostat. If the freezer is not working check for power to it. Reset the breaker if necessary.
If the light went out because of some power loss the freezer would not be working.
