Frigidaire Electrolux side by side fan not working

Lightning struck close to my house and took out my power the other day. I have a frigidaire electrolux side by side which I found out that the fan which is located in the freezer above the coils is not working. The coils are ok. Can I just replace the fan or do I have a bigger electrical problem? Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

If teh fan had burnt out then there is every possibility that your contactor, the timer, the compressor must be checked. Replace the fan as you had confirmed and put the set on. If the compressor works and the cooling comes on fine then there is nothing to worry. But if you notice any smell or a different noise then shut off and open the back side to check from the contactor onwards to the compressor. However if the compressor works well then you are lucky . hope you get along to do this. Good day

Electrolux Frigidaire Model # FRT21BW8DW0 NOT WORKING, HELP!!

Hello Emily R - Do you hear anything running in the machine compartment and what type of airflow is the condenser fan providing (try removing the toe grille, located above the drain pain on the bottom right-hand side)? If you do not hear the compressor and unit is providing room temperature, it usually means the unit may have a faulty compressor or a sealed system leak. I would personally recommend contacting the manufacturer for a listing of authorized technicians who may assist you in repairing your unit and reinstalling the part that has been removed due to liability reasons.

Nothing works.

Remote receiver got fried by the voltage spike. If you have pull chain controls as well, you can remove the receiver and possibly be able to save the fan, but the capacitors, may have also been fried. If the capacitors are fried, then most likely the motor experienced some seriously high voltage too, which would mean I would replace the fan. I assume you have had the house's wiring inspected? If lightning struck the house and killed the fan, then it likely ALSO damaged other electrical components. If the lightning struck your power transformer and not your home directly, you may can get the power company to pay for this ceiling fan as the transformer is supposed to have a lightning arrester on it.

I have a 6-2003 Frigidaire side by side Model#FRS23F4CW0 Electrolux refrigerator. It gets hot in the middle of both doors the frame only. Is that normal.

Mine did the same thing and then stopped cooling within a few weeks. I opened up the lower back cover to check the coils for dust and found that the fan had stopped working. I took a box fan and blew air through the coils and it started working just fine. Now I just need to fix the fan problem and I'm back in business. Bottom line: check under the fridge to make sure the coils are able to dissipate the heat.

First thing you need to do is determine that it is the dryer. we had a similar problem and it turned out to be the connections in the dryer plug. you should have 2 prongs in the plug with 120volts and one hole with no voltage.

I would chech the components on the compressor. Take the cover off the compressor power terminals and inspect the relay for damage.The power outage is not a concern but the power surge could definately be the cause. hope this helps.

Frigidaire side by side

To me it sounds like the thremostatic controle switch has gone bad, if the fan works seperately from the system, than the switch may be bad.
