Frigidaire Refrigerator not cooling

Our Frigidaire refrigerator quite cooling. I did some research and the suggestions were that I replace the starter relay. I did but fridge still does not get cold. I can feel the air flowing in. Also I can go in back of the fridge and hear the compressor kick on, but the frifge still does not get cold. Deos anyone have any other suggestions that I can try. I would really hate to go out and buy another fridge especially in this economy.

Is the fan on the bottom on? Do you hear the compressor kick off and on within a minute? No/ Is the evaporator fan running? Do you have frost on the evaporator? Frost is a sign that the defrost isnt working. If evap fan doesnt run it wont cool the refrigerator. If everything is running and no frost buildup in freezer then you have a sealed system problem and need of a tech.

I changed the water filter in my refrigerator and now my freezer is mot working....any correlation?

I don't think so but the same thing happened to me. After changing my water filter, my freezer quit cooling and then the refrigerator. I made a video on how I fixed the problem. My only assumption is the water could have gotten down into the starter relay, shorted it out and made it go bad. While changing the filter some water sprayed out and I noticed some water on the floor that came out the back of the refrigerator.

Won't cool

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FFTR1713LW6, is not cooling. We are into the summer months now, so it could possibly be that it is getting hot and humid, and I suggest lowering the temperature inside your refrigerator. Give it 24 hours for the temperature to stabilize. If you are still noticing that your appliance is not cooling, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician, for further assistance. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Model FRT045GB

Good Morning Jr. Riojas,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire compact refrigerator, model# FRT045GB, and it not cooling. I also see that you have reset your refrigerator, by unplugging it, and it works fine for two weeks, then you have to repeat resetting it. I suggest contacting either the manufacturer or your local authorized technician for further assistance. They should be able to better assist as to why your refrigerator cools for a few weeks and then you have to unplug it for it to cool a couple more. Hope this is helpful.

I have a frigidaire FGHC2342LF and the refrigerator is not cooling

Good Afternoon Rick,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FGHC2342LF, not cooling in the refrigerator portion.

I suggest giving your appliance a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging it or cutting the power off at the circuit breaker for at least 2-3 minutes. When power is restored to your refrigerator, give it an hour to 2 hours to see if the temperature restores to the suggested temperature of 37 degrees for the refrigerator and 0 degrees for the freezer. If the temperatures do not go down, I suggest you contact your local authorized technician. I hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Compressor on side by side refrigerator not starting / cooling

I would certainly suggest the hard start kit. Also make sure that voltage drop in the line feeding the unit is not an issue. Check the voltage in outlet as the unit starts. Use a fast responding analog meter as a digital will mask the dip.
