Question about Frigidaire FRS23H5AS Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Frigidaire FRS23H5AS side by side. condensor fan runs, no voltage to compressor

Noticed freezer defrosting, food thawing. condensor fan as well as the evaporator fan in the reezer but compressor is not running. checked voltage to compressor and none present. ohmed out compressor and what little knowledge I have I think it's ok. anywhere from 4 to 8 ohms. Is there a relay or defrost control somewhere that may be bad? where would it be located and how can I check it?

Code H1 on my frigidaire ffhs2622mwla refrigerator


HI is an error for freezer temperature detected as too warm... Look for frost on the back wall of freezer (defrost failure), or a failed evaporator fan (you should hear it running in the freezer compartment), if the food in the freezer is beginning to thaw, check the compressor to see if it is running. If the compressor is running, but the freezer isn't cold enough, and the evap fan is good with no frost build-up, you may have a sealed system leak (refrigerant charge is low). Frigidaires really suck in recent years and have lots of leak issues...

Hi,
Check the temperature setting Assure that there is enough room for air flow in the freezer or freezer Check for air flow restrictions in vents Test the temperature control Clean the condensor coils Check the door seals Test the door switch Test defrost heater Test defrost timer Test evaporator fan Check for a clogged drain tube Check for refrigerant leak Freezer is too cold
Check the temperature setting Test the temperature control Freezer is noisy
Hissing and popping is normal, it is the defrost heater. Check that the freezer is level Check the drain pan Check the condensor fan Check the evaporator fan Inspect the compressor mounts Freezer runs continuously
Defrost the freezer Clean the condensor coils Check the door seals Freezer starts and stops frequently
Clean the condensor coils Check the outlet voltage Test the condensor fan Test the compressor relay Test the overload protector Test the compressor motor Freezer does not defrost automatically
Test the defrost timer Test the defrost heater Test the defrost thermostat Freezer has an unpleasant odor
Remove spoiled food Clean freezer interior with a solution of h Clean freezer interior with a solution of hot water and baking soda Clean the door seals Remove breaker strips and check for wet insulation Water on floor outside of freezer
Check the drain pan If you have an ice-maker, check the water supply hose going into and coming out of the water inlet valve Water inside the freezer
Check for a clogged drain tube If you have an ice-maker, check freezer and ice-maker for level


Hoping that this will help to solve the problem....

Pull the refrig out , and remove the back panel . Is the compressor running ? Is it hot ? Is the fan cooling the compressor , running ?

The part number for the compressor piece ( overload/relay kit ) is 12002784 . It is easily replaceable .

Frigidaire FRS23H5AS refrigerator - freezer not cold


Humming noise would be your compressor going bad. The noise from the fan is because they are over working to try and keep everything cool

Fresh Food & Freezer Warm


CHECK AND MAKE SURE YOU CAN HEAR YOUR EVAPORATOR FAN RUNNING (INSIDE MOTOR). IF IT IS NOT RUNNING ... AND YOUR COMPRESSOR IS RUNNING. THE MOTOR OR DEFROST TEMENATION SWICTH COULD BE DEFECTIVE. IF NOTHING IS RUNNING ... TRY TO LOCATE THE DEFROST TIMER(USUALLY LOCATED WHERE YOUR COLD CONTROLS ARE) YOU SHOULD SEE A SMALL HOLE WHERE YOU CAN MANUALLY TURN THE TIMER WITH A SCREW DRIVER.IT CAN ONLY TURN IN ONE DIRECTION. IF THE MOTOR IS RUNNING. CHECK TO SEE IF COMPRESSOR IN THE BACK IS RUNNING ... IF IT ISNT AND IS "HOT" (BE CAREFULL) SEE IF THE CONDENSER MOTOR NEAR THE COMPRESSOR IS RUNNING ... IF NOT ... THE COND. MOTOR IS BAD ... THAT MOTOR RUNS IF POWER IS GOING TO THE COMPRESSOR ALWAYS. IF COMPRESSOR IS HOT AND NOT RUNNING AND COND. FAN IS RUNNING .... UN PLUG FRIG AND WAIT TILL COMPRESSOR IS COOL TO THE TOUCH. THESE COMPRESSORS HAVE AN INTERNAL T-STAT THAT PROTECTS THE COMPRESSOR IF IT SHORT CYCLES.IT SOMETIMES GETS SO HOT IT DOES TAKE HOURS TO COOL OFF. THERE IS ALSO A DEFROST-TERMINATION SWITCH THAT CAN GO BAD. CONSULT A LICSESED FACTORY CERTIFIED COMPANY TO GIVE YOU A FIXED-PRICE DIAGNOSTIC TEST.
