Could be a defective thermostat, or you could have placed your cooler in a area without adequate ventilation.

Should my refigerator compressor be hot to the touch?

Hello friend, thanks for the post!

Based off the information you have provided your compressor can be hot to the touch because it is working to help cool down your refrigerator. I would allow it the opportunity to maintain proper temperature inside of your appliance before it stops running. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Why is Unit not cooling?

Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FAS296R2A, is not cooling. I also see that, both the filter and condenser are clean. First, try setting the temperature lower. Secondly, the compressor could have shut off by changing modes. Set to the "COOL" setting and wait about 3 minutes for the compressor to restart. Lastly, check the temperature sensing element, located behind the air filter, to make sure it is not touching a cold coil. If it is, straighten the sensor away from the coil. I hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Frigidaire freezer compressor is hot to the touch and not cold inside

If the compressor is hot, then the temperature inside the unit may be compromised if there is a sealed system issue or a restriction in the unit. Call a professional to be safe.

Current setting too hot

Hi, If your temperature setting is hot, just adjust it to lower temperature by using your remote commander. Unless you have problem with compressor, refrigerant, motor and controller, you should able set your temperature to meet your comfort. A small split type air conditioner commonly will able set the temperature from 16 - 30 deg. C.

This unit was purchased new 61 months ago. First instance of any problems, ever, today it seems food isn't being kept frozen solid. We suspect the compressor is having a problem. There was no sound...

Yes it is a very big concern.It sounds to me like your condenser is dirty and the compressor gets hot and goes off on overload.You can tell by putting your hand NEAR the compressor.Be careful as the compressor can be very hot

If the mullion heater around the doors is hot to the touch the inside temperatures are not being maintained. They should be warm but not hot. This usually indicates a problem in the internal temperatures. Check the back wall of the freezer section for frost buildup. Your defrost system may not be working and it had not gotten to the point of complete failure as far as you noticing the temperature differences yet.
