Question about Frigidaire FRS26H7CS Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Refrig clicks on and off continously for a certain time and finally turns on, the thing is it has no problem cooling or freezing but the clicking on - off thing will drive you nuts. I think it has something to do with a relay or contactor somewhere.

    Well now the freezer seems to be working but the frig does not, the air is blowing in the freezer but not the frig and the damper in the frig is open. I was thinking the adaptive defrost module was bad but now I am totally confused is there another damper. I am a electrical contractor but NOT a appliance guy. I do have the schematics and wire diagrams.

    Now the freezer is working and the refrig is not, the damper in the refrig is open and air is blowing in the freezer but not the refrig. Is there another damper in the freezer, could this be a problem with the adaptive defrost module. Im totally confused now. With the freezer working it would seem the compressor is working, the clicking on and off has stopped but so has the refrig but not the freezer.

Hi,

You are correct in your assumption. The problem you describe are consistent with the start relay on the compressor. It will act this way then eventually quit all together if not replaced.

The relay is attached to the compressor. Pull the frig out and unplug the power cord. Take the lower panel off the back, the compressor will have a black plastic cover on one side of it. Under this cover is the relay.

The relay will go bad from overheating. Be sure the coils are clean and the fan by the coils is running.

Ge tv239461 freezer is cold but refrig is warm


Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------
