Frigidaire side by side circuit board issues i think

Frigidaire side by side fridge. We had a circuit board replaced because if you tap the plastic part around it, it would kick the fridge on and cool like it should. What could it be? Wiring harness going to circuit board maybe or circuit board bad again. This was replaced and the next day same problem. The fridge is only 5 years old. It makes a electrical zapping sound as it kicks on after tapping on plastic.

SOURCE: Frigidaire Gallery Side by Side - Fridge not cooling

Locate the defrost timer and rotate the dial a small amount clockwise. If the compressor starts the timer should be replaced. If the compressor does not start check the temperature control. It may be bad, if it is bad try jumpering the thermostat wires. If it starts and runs the thermostat is bad. Replace the thermostat.

SOURCE: New defrost timer on fridge keeps tripping circuit breaker


The problem is the defrost timer you just replace on your refrigerator, you will need to check the ratings on the broken defrost timer to ensure it matches the ratings on the present defrost heater on your refrigerator, beside, you will need to test the continuity on your present defrost heater to see if the voltage rating is ok, because, if it can be tripping the breaker off while it kicks into defrost mode signify that the present defrost heater is not compatible with your refrigerator, it is either it is not well wired or fixed, and if it is, then, it means the defrost timer voltage rating is low compare to the former, you will need to get exact specification as the the broken one.

Take care.

My frigidaire refrigerator side by side if flash a number 4 on the fridge side as it is not cooling

Good Morning John, thank you for your post!

Generally, error code 4 means that the refrigerator is experiencing an issue with the damper. The damper is either not opening or closing properly causing the fridge compartment to not cool. One of the best ways to determine if this is a false error code is to reset the power to your refrigerator by either unplugging it or flipping off the breaker for about 30 seconds. If the error code persists, the wiring between the damper and Main Control Board will need to be diagnosed by a professional. Depending on the results, either the damper or Main Control Board will need replacing.

Best regards!

Frigidaire fridge code 4

Hello j280connolly - Typically error code 4 means that there is a communication failure with the main control board and damper. Base on the intensity of the issue; a certified technician would have to check the wiring between the two. If problem still exist, might have to replace the main control board.

I have a samsung side by side srs537nw. both side are not working properly. the fridge wont cool and the freezer turn into a fridge.

Had exactly the same problem. Found the cooling coils are not defrosting, everything was iced up inside the back panels. The drain was blocked, water pooling underneath also.

Remove all the plastic panels in the back of the freezer, including the temp. sensor (unplug) and fan (unplug). Defrost everything with a hair drier.

Make sure that the drain at the bottom is free, a small plastic tube which takes water down into a pan where it is evaporated by the compressor etc.

Replace the defrost sensor - the most likely faulty part. This costs about $Au 20.00 from Samsung (just ask for a defrost sensor for the model of fridge). This sensor fits in a plastic cage attached to the top of the cooling coils, has wires which plug into a socket. Reassemble the fridge and see if this has solved the problem.

If the fridge still does not defrost automatically, you may need to replace the circuit board ($Au 80.00 from Samsung). This board is found from the back of the fridge, in a plastic box behind a back panel at the bottom of the back of the fridge. Lots of wires to unplug!

There may be other problems, like a faulty thermostat on the valve which controls circulation of cold air into the fridge from the freezer, I have no experience of solving this.

Samsung mechanics are HOPELESS in my experience, replacing the two parts above will be less expensive than a call to them. Good luck!

Loud ticking noise when i close freezer and lights on icemaker flash like a stobe light. fridge and freezer wont hold temp. ice amker and water dispenser dont work?

if your lights burned out recently and the digital temp read-out is now dark also,burned out lights will cause a power surge and will destroy the main-board circuit trace(mother-board), it is located in the back side of the refrigerator, in a small plastic case,when you remove it you will see a burned spot on the circuit board and the loud clicking sound is a relay on the board trying to latch to light the bulbs and operate the unit

Flashing #4 on temperature display

flashing #4 is a communication error between the control board and the damper assy, usually it is the fault ogf the damper assy but if it is under mfg warranty, replace both, if you need to pay for the parts yourself get the damper first.

Freezer is cold but the frig side is not???

Hi Gotzd,  If you open the fresh food side (not the freezer), and look to the upper left side you will see a plastic shroud or cover. Behind that cover is a printed circuit board (p.c. board)   and a damper motor. That motor brings cold air from the freezer to the fresh food side. The whole damper assembly may need to be replaced. That also includes the cold controls for both sides of the "fridge".  Home Depot Parts and Accessories has the part available. 800.378.5830. Call, give them your model number, and the description, they will locate the part number for you. This MAY be the solution for you, it was for me. Hope this helps, better yet, Hope you've fixed already.

Whirlpool gold refridgerator light not working and is making funny noise

Had the identical symptoms with my Whirlpool Gold GS6SHEXNB00 side-by-side refrigerator. Had a technician come on site, indicated it was the "circuit board/ timer" (Whirlpool part # 1394052). Board is accessible from behind fridge (lower left side in a white plastic housing to left of compressor).

Swapped the board out (noticed a scorched circuit on the old circuit board). Lightbulbs now work, temperature readouts also good to go.
