SOURCE: freezer/ fridge not cooling, compressor not running

this refig has 2 independent temp controls one that operates the freezer side (this one also operates compressor, condenser fan and evporator fan) and one that controls the temp for the fresh food side this one operates a damper and evaporator motor.
I looked up you model number and you need to check the control that is located to the left side of the control panel or the freezer control. if it is 60f in the unit then if this control is good it should read infinity on a ohms meter. if its bad you will get no reading at all. alternatley you may try hitting the control solidly with the **** of a screwdriver sometimes the contact will hange open. message me back if you need further assistance. peyton...

SOURCE: frigidaire dishwasher wont run

Thanks for your help. My dishwasher did the same thing today -- green lock light came on and I couldn't get it to run. I checked the bottom of the tank and I had some glass lodged in the drain. Cleaned it out and held the button down for 5 seconds and now it runs again.

SOURCE: I have a Frigidaire top freezer refrigerator which

the evaporator fan is not spinning. the coil is getting too cold because the fan is not circulating the air across it. defrost it and see if the fan works. If not, they are fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. There is an access cover on the back wall of the freezer. remove it, and the fan is right behind it.

SOURCE: can a frigidaire ( fam156r1a)

Hello, yes the unit can be recharged but a piercing valve must be added to the low side of the system in order to do that. The valve pierces the tubing and then the refrigerant can be added.

Frezzer runs but the compresser does not comes on

1. is light on in side when you open the door. If not check breakers or fuses.
2. Can you hear the compressor running. If not do you hear any clicking sounds.
3. If you hear clicking sounds, try putting a fan on compressor and unplug refrigerator.
4. Wait one hour.
5. plug back in. If compressor starts let it run and see if it cools, if it doesnt, call service man.
6. If it goes back to clicking, call a service man.
let me know if this helps.

Can't figure out how to reverse the Hampton fan with the remote

I have the Hampton Bay Windward II Ceiling Fan SKU 523-127. I have replaced various parts over the years including the ballast, light shade, 9" 30 Watt Circline bulb and the remote.

Hampton Bay Windward II Ceiling Fan SKU 523-127 was sold by Home Depot, and manufactured by King of Fans.

King of Fans website is:
This fan can be seen by clicking on Products --> Ceiling Fans --> Click on page 9 (at the bottom of the webpage) then click on the Windward II fan picture, then you will be able to click on Download Owner's Guide.

No if you have no sound/ video its just at the main screen and wont start up so the fan willl spin slow and you wont hear it..
shut it off then turn it on and wait for the red light to appear.
Push and HOLD the power button down until you hear it beep.. eventually it will reset itself and the screen will appear.
IF you do have a/v then you need a new fan costs 30$ PLUS shipping let me know if you need one!

Problems with Frigidaire FRS6R4E Side by Side Refrigerator?

The refrig side does not have a fan. only the freezer. Is that fan working??? you will hear it when the unit is running (and not in defrost) The clicking you hear is the Damper (a motorized door allowing more or less air to the refrig) opening or closing. Is there frost buildup on the back wall of the freezer??

I have a similar problem with my Frigidaire FAM156R1A Air conditioner. The unit is stuck on a temp setting and occasionally makes a beeping sound. Repair tech came out and told me the control panel was broken and that this is a common problem. I wrote more detail here:
