Question about Frigidaire FRS23F4C Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Keeps frying defrost boards.

Hi I have a frigidaire model # FRS23F4CW3 quit cooling suddenly and i thought it might have been my 3n1 capacitor so i bought a new one and put it on still no cooling so i talked to a repairman down the road and i told him what it was doing. Internal fan blowing but compressor and condensing fan not working and he said it sounds like it's stuck in defrost and it was probably my board so i went home looked for the board, found the board, sure enough it was burnt on 2 pins 4&6 - "compressor out and freezer cold control". this board p/n is 241508001 by the way. So i went out and paid $70 for a new one and installed it. it worked great for about 2 minutes and then it fried the brand new one. If anyone can help me please do so. I think i may have a short or something. thanks

Most likely the=> 5303918476 Defrost Control Board will need to be replaced. This board can be found inside the control panel inside the fresh food compartment. Unplug power and lets examine the board. Here is another source for the board 5303918476 Defrost Control Board Here is a photo of the inside of the control panel HERE and item location 23 is that board. I am here should you have questions, Sea Breeze
Soemtimes the defrost control board will show signs of failure with burn marks and heat damage but not always. It is likely this board is the problem and in some cases the start relay and run capacitor can cause these same symptons.

How to wire in new hard start


It's very simple to install a 3N1 Supco Hard Start Relay, Some refrigerators have a run capacitor located on compressor or mounted nearby. It will be important that you use the run capacitor in with the 3N1 Hard Start. Here is a Photo of the=> URCO810_3_N_1

The instructions come with the 3N1 Hard Start Relay. Can you please post the model number of your refrigerator here so I can look up a wiring diagram? Look around the fresh food section door frame for your model number. I do need to know so we can get the right run capacitor in the 3N1 hard start circuit, Thanks Sea Breeze

Hi,
That is probably a bad sensor ...but it could be the board...
only hands on testing can begin to tell what is causing it to go into defrost prematurely...

Refridge quit cooling suddenly inboth freezer


That could be a broad range of possibilities. The defrost timer, adaptive defrost board,compressor start relay, compressor start capacitor or a mother board. Would you happen to have the model number so I can narrow down those possibilities? If you pull away from wall remove cover over the compressor and then unplug. Touch the compressor and let me know if cool, warm or too hot to touch. Thanks, Sea Breeze

if the heater and thermostat are good and wired correctly then the only other thing would be the defrost timer board.
