20.0 cu.ft upright frigidaire. I unpluged it because we were moving and it set for a while before we pluged it back up about six to ten months now it nolonger gets cold. what problem do i have?


Hi Kenneth.

I understood that the fridge is starting but does not cool.

Check fridge temperature settings.

Check if the motor is starting. If the compressor is not running of if it clicks and does not start is the relay/capacitor connected to the motor.

Check if coils have been damaged or if the motor runs most of the time. If there have been a leak or if the refrigerant pressure is low the fridge will not cool.

If thermostat or electronic control is defective the fridge will not cool.

I can be a bit more specific if you give me the complete model number.

My side by side fridge has stopped chilling down, the power is Ok, and moter seems to be working, but no cold inside. A few months ago the freezer side stopped, but as i did not use it , i just left well...


. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm




Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running. It blows cold air into the fridge side through a damper in the wall between the freezer and fridge. Make sure the damper is open.

Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).

First gathered water at the bottom, thought that is was due to something touching the back. Stopped fridge, cleaned it, started it again. Light on but no familiar noice of the engine starting again. Engine...


Don't know the model/brand off the top of my head...

But: If the compressor is warm/hot, but nothing is happening, I ask this:
Even if the fridge is not cooling, is the compressor running, or dead silent?
If silent, but warm, do you hear a "Click" every so often ? Maybe 3 to 5 minutes apart, followed shortly by a 2nd click ?
If so, most likely the compressor has seized, and this is the over-current trip acting (thermal, so it needs time to cool).
Big problem if it is the compressor (expensive).

The only other thing that might cause a similar occurrence, would be if the compressor has a Start capacitor. If this has died, the compressor will not turn - just sit there getting warmer, as the over-current trip acts.

If it was a dead thermostat, the compressor wouldn't get power, and would be cold.

REFRIGERATOR IS MAKING A BUZZING SOUND, not cooling


You have one of two problems going on. Your fan is spinning at hitting the sides. Or your compressor is shot which seems to be more the problem and even though it is cold the humming sound is a warning for you that the compressor is shot and it is more affordable to replace the fridge then the compressor. Sometimes compressor can cost more then the fridge.

Fridge Not Getting Cold


The only thing i can thing of is the start switch it may be burned out.It is located on the compressor.If your compressors running and there is no cold air in freezer part and fridge you may have a sealed system leak.Open the rear bottom panel while the fan is running and feel the compressor if it is hot and it is running you may need a repair person to come look at it.also forgot to say is if you have frost bult up in rear freezer panel that would indicate it is froze up and will need a manual defrost .After done that the defrost timer may need replaceing it is locatedaround the control and light area.hope i fixya :)

When plugged in, the compressor never kicks on. It just clicks.


If the compressor is getting hot then the compressor is gone. But the price on a relay is fairly cheap so you can at least try it and if it doesnt work then return it and dump the unit. But like I said before when a compressor gets hot it means that the piston is bad and the rings are burnt and the oil is bad in the compressor.

Running fine but blowing warm air


"it seems to work fine but will not get cold"
Not sure how it can work fine and is not cold. When you say work fine, is the light on and the freezer fan blowing but is the compressor running?

Unplug the Ref and wait about 30 min or so, plug it back in and listen for the compressor to start running. You should be behind the Ref to hear this. If you don't hear it start running then you may hear a clicking noise. This clicking is a problen with the compressor start relay. If the compressor runs but still is not cold then it could be low on coolant.
