Question about Frigidaire FRS3R5EMB Side by Side Refrigerator
My side by side FRS26R4CB4 fridge is not getting cold. It all started after a storm and electrical problem in my house. Elec. outlet has been tested by Electrition and is fine ( He said it has to be the Compressor in fridge). I unpluged it let it sit and even tried a different outlet, no luck. I noticed after taking the back compartment off, when I move the compressor it is mobile in the casing. Any advice or assisstance???
There is nothing wrong with the compressor. It is very common for the "relays" to go out on the compressor. The relays are mounted on the left side of the compressor. You need to find an "Appliance Parts Store" and buy an "RO-41". (this is a relay) it cost no more than 10 bucks. Go home with you new bought relay and pull your refrigerator out from the wall. Don't forget to unplug it! Take off the rectangle card board cover off the bottom of the refrigerator "in back"... More than likely 1/4 nut driver. Now look for the compressor--"The Roundish black thing the size of a basketball". Next, you will see a box looking thing (black, white) mounted on the side of the compressor with 2 wires going to it. Next take it off the side of the compressor. It just pulls straight off! Sometime though it may be held in place by a little clip. Now read the instructions with the RO-41(inside cover). You will end up cutting the old relays off. Take the two wires that went to it and wire them into the relay(follow the instructions w/relay) then other wires on relay plug right into the compressor! AND THATS IT! It sounds hard but aint... goodluck!!!

There is a starter relay located on teh side of your compressor that may be bad. pull the relay off of the comp and shake it to see if it rattles like something broken inside. the relay is very easy to repl.
