    Good day, Freezer or fresh food section or both ????? How long has the issue been going on and how old is the machine.

  • benslen Jul 16, 2010

    Neither side will cool well. The fresh food section is only slightly below room temperature and the freezer will not freeze water.

Try these steps.
See if you can hear the fan motor blowing when you open the freezer door. If not, you will have to remove the rear panel and check the motor. If burned out, replace with new.
If in the freezer compartment, look at the rear panel. If frost is building up, then the automatic defrost system has failed, and will need repaired.
If none of the above are an issue, check on the bottom rear of the machine with the cover removed. There is a condenser cooling fan motor located next to the compressor. If it is not running, then you will need to replace it.
If all the above items check O.K., then you have an issue with the compressor and sealed system, and a qualified tech will have to determine the problem.

Excellant tutorial on defrost systems. If that is your issue.

My frigidaire window AC is not cooling anymore


Does it get cold? You can try cleaning the fins-both inside and outside, with windex. Smoling & cooking will create a sticky deposit that will make dist that gets through the filter stick and it won't cool properly.
If it doesn.t get cold any more, try replacing the starting capacitor. About $5. If that doesn't take care of it, just replace the unit. They are cheap enough these days, that you can replace a unit with a more energy efficient unit for the same cost or less as a repair would cost.
