Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
Your Refrigerator is still under the manufacturers warranty so there is little you can do before contacting customer service. Having said that; there is something you can do before calling for service. I suspect that just maybe your freezer is too cold and the plumbing for the comparement and door water supply may have frozen. Empty the freezer and place a fan blowing into the freezer compartment for over 2 hours. It makes a water mess so be prepaired for the necessary tending to the drips. After the over 2 hours of manual defrosting with a fan check the water in the door function to see if you have water flow. If you have flow at this time you need to begin raising the freezer temperature until you no longer experience water line freeze ups. If after the manual defrosting period you still have the problem you will need to call for warranty service.

One other thing to check is to depress the door light switch and make sure the light is going off when the door is closed. Even if you discover that the light is staying on with the door switch plunger depressed you must contact the Frigidaire service team for warranty service. Since you did not provide a model number there is a possibility that your light switch is actually located in the upper door hinge area. The number for warranty service is listed below.


To reach a service team member, please call:
1-800-374-4432
Monday-Friday, 9:00am-5:30pm (EST)

There are many things I could have you do but all of them would void your warranty.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Freezer door was left open, now after one day freezer is not cold


you can unplug it and let it defrost on it's own or you can melt out the air ducts,you'll have to shut down the freezer,remove the shelves and remove the inside back wall of the freezer section and melt out all the ice in the right hand corner and any ice on the coil.when melting out the air ducts be careful not to damage any of the plastic or styrofoam on or inside the wall,heat up the area with a hair dryer for a couple of minutes and then move to the coil,after a minute or two go back the the air duct,when you think it's melted out enough turn the freezer back on and with your hand check to make sure the air is blowing into the fridge side,if you can feel air blowing then your all set,if there's any ice left in there the defrost will take care of it.if you have another fridge to put your food in or if the food can't be refrozen i'd just unplug it and let it melt out on it's own over night and you can clean it out while everything is out of it.let me know how you make out and good luck,hope you didn't loose that much food

It sounds like a start relay problem. try and see if you can remove the start relay and purchase a new one. You may find that you have a capacitor start & run, it could also be the start/run capacitor failing. at least the compressor is working, so all evidence leads to start relay failure or start/run capacitor failure. Try these first they are cheap enough to buy. if you are not sure you can check this yourself get a local sparky to look at it.

A serious problem You have to take assistance from a technician. Due to overload as the door was left opened either the compressor motor or the condenser is burnt out. Please have it checked up. You will not be able to repair it yourself as it may require replacing parts.

you may need to manually defrost the evaporator coil. If condensation built up from the door being left open, it may have frozen the coil solid. At that point even the evaporator defrost bar won't be able to remove the ice. Remove the cover, if it is frozen solid, unplug the unit and use a hair dryer to defrost the ice.

We left the freezer door open all night by accident two days ago


I turned the fridge side off on mine, and left it overnight (last night!). This morning there is frozen stuff in the freezer. I think the compressor motor just needed ALOT of time to cool down b4 it would work properly again
