Power to compressor must be off (about 5 minutes) before a restart should be tried. Some of these relays are thermal and must cool down before power is reapplied.

SOURCE: Marvel 6BAR stopped cooling

I had the same issue after the unit was two weeks old. Marvel sent service people to service the unit, but they ultimately told me that the unit was not suppose to get any cooler because "of federal regulations" (I kid you not). I had to have an unaffiliated repair person remove the digital thermometer and put in a manual one. Now the unit cools well and I am pursuing Marvel for the $200 the service person charged me.

I believe that your compressor is not running or you have a refrigerant loss. I say this because there should be warm air coming from the condenser.

Freezer seems to run all the time.


Good Morning Linda, this is Z. I appreciate your post!

I understand your Frigidaire freezer seems to continuously running. Unlike older freezer that turned off and on frequently, newer models save energy from having to start up and shut off repeatedly. For example, diesel-powered trucks conserve fuel and energy and therefore have less engine wear and tear by keeping the motor running; much like newer energy efficient refrigerators/freezer. If the compressor is running on a more constant basis; it is maintaining the temperature within your freezer, rather than having to cut off and start again to adjust the temperature.

I hope this information explains why your freezer runs more often. However, should you feel that a service technician is needed; you may visit the manufacturer website to find a provider in your area that will look at your freezer.

Best regards!

How do you turn off power saver on frigidaire air conditioner


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you want to know how to turn off the power save mode for your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FFRE12L3Q1. Your appliance will run in energy saver(econ) mode when used for the first time. In this mode, the fan will continue to run for 1 minute after the compressor shuts off. The fan then cycles on for 20 seconds at 10 minute intervals until the room temperature is above the set temperature, at which time the compressor turns back on. You will be able to turn the energy save mode off by selecting your temperature as well as your fan speed. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

The motor does not run constantly...should it cyle on and off and if so , how often


Hello Andy, thank you for your post!

By motor, are you referring to the compressor of your refrigerator? The compressor can run for longer periods of time and this is actually more energy efficient. Unlike older refrigerators that turned off and on frequently, newer models save energy from having to start up and shut off repeatedly. For example, diesel-powered trucks conserve fuel and energy and therefore have less engine wear and tear by keeping the motor running; much like newer energy efficient refrigerators. If the compressor is running on a more constant basis; it is maintaining the temperature within your refrigerator, rather than having to cut off and start again to adjust the temperature.

I hope this information explains your concern. However, should you feel that a service technician is needed; you may visit the manufacturer website to find a provider in your area that will look at your appliance.

Best regards, Chris!

Heat pump compressor wont come on in heat mode, works fine in cool mode, we get heat occaisionally for about 2 min, then the compressor shuts off. it is a fridgedaire window unit.


Try setting the thermostat at a normal heat setting. By raising the temperature too high the unit thinks that the heat pump won't be effective and go into strip heat mode.

My frigidare refrigerator was working fine when i put it in storage 3 years ago. took it out of storage a week ago and plug it up and it has not cooled at all.


. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. The relay is a small usually black cube shaped electrical part plugged into the compressor or wired to it nearby. It may appear burnt or rattle when shaken if it's bad. The two connections should show continuity with an amp meter. If it's good then it's most likely the compressor causing the problem.
Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm

How do i turn on TV after pressing energy saving button TV not on


Some of these have a switch on the front you have to click to send power to the circuits. Make sure this is clicked in and then try to turn it back on. The switch may be kind of hidden underneath. If that doesn't help, try unplugging the set for 1 minute, plug it in and wait 1 minute, then try to turn it on. Let me know if this does not solve your issue, we can diagnose further.

REFRIGERATOR NOT GETTING COLD


. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. If the relay is ok there is a compressor problem or low freon it it don't start

Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running. It blows cold air into the fridge side through a damper in the wall between the freezer and fridge. Make sure the damper is open.

Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).

How do I get the red&white wires out of a Starter/overload assbly


it's very easy but alittle tricky. use something thin and hard. there's a small tab on those connecting clips that you must press down while pulling the wire out of the relay.if you have a replacement relay on hand, then go head and carefully crack open the relay in order to remove the wires.
MAKE SURE YOU UNPLUG UNIT B4 DOING THIS.
