The compressor is going bad, check your owners manual for warranty information or look here http://b2b.frigidaire.com/support/manuals.asp if you cant find the manual. Some units have up to 7 years on the sealed system (the compressor, cooling coils, and hot coils).

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

My frigidaire is not cooling. my fans run and my compressor tries to start every couple of minutes and runs for 5 to 10 seconds. keeps repeating this


That could be an overload unit is fault due to fatigue or the relay that need to change from start winding to run winding is fault.if not the compressor is short cycling due to less refegrant gas in the systerm.Find a leak and regas after sealing it

Frigidaire refrigerator


check the overload, take it loose and inspect it for a burnt spot shake it if it rattles replace the relay
you either have a relay bad or a stuck compressor
the compressor has a 5 year warranty on the part, the relay 1
so if you relpace the relay and it still doesnt run the compressor, call for serviece under warranty
