Question about Frigidaire Refrigerators

1 Answer

Set up a new Frigidaire side by side on Saturday. It is still not cold. The freezer has never gotten below 34 degrees and is up to 54 at times. The refrigerator is barely under room temp. Is there anything that can be done or should I just return it??

Hi,

I would return it...

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

How cold should the freezer get?


I am assuming you are referring to Fahrenheit.. 16 is a little warm for a freezer. They usually stay around zero to 10 degrees above or below.

Frigidaire problems


Use the link below to view and read the user manual. If this is a used refrigerator it is possible that there may be a problem but it should be minor. The refrigerator section is cooled by air from the freezer. This problem is usually caused be excessive frost but you should not have frost buildup in only 24 hours.
There is also parts lists and diagrams.on the site.
I am also including a link to youtube videos about refrigerator problems.

Frigidaire refrigerator with a broken freezer


He is correct. The temp in the refrig controls how often and for how long the refrig runs. Lets say the temp in your garage is 34 degrees, and you have your refrig set to 36 degrees: The refrig will never run, the fresh foods section will cool to 34, and the freezer will warm to 34. Even if the temp is 45 in the garage and you set the fresh foods to be 33, the refrig will not need to run long enough and often enough to keep the freezer temp cold enough. You will most likely need to have the ambient room temp at least 55 degrees to get satisfactory refrigerator performance. Insulating the refrig will not help. (by the way, outdoor beverage vending machines use an internal heater in cold weather to prevent liquid beverages inside from freezing,..... so using that info, you could put a low wattage heater in your refrig to make your refrig run enough to make the freezer section work. The %&#* with that, just move it into the house!)

Both Freezer in my shed packed up at the same time is it due to the realy cold spell we are having> I have thrown alot of food away. Can anyone help sort it out .


Good day,
Any temperature below 55 degrees will cause the machine to go
out of balance. If far enough below 55 degrees the machine will reach a point where it rarely if ever runs. Thus your problem.

Frigidaire's owner manual will verify this.
Domestic refrigerators/freezers are designed to work properly at temperatures comfortable to people.
Usually 70 to 95 degrees.
Sorry I can't give you a solution better than this but it is a common complaint here in cold weather. This problem applies to all brands and models of refrigerators - freezers.

Thank you for using FixYa

Freezer works, frig doesn't


there is a fan on many newer units that blows cold air from the freezer side to the frig. If that fan is not working, the frig will be cool, but not 34° like you want it.
