Hi,

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...

Try cleaning the condenser coils at the bottom of the unit. Also check to make sure the blower fan is working also located at bottom of unit.

Both fridge and freezer are turned up to maximum cooling but they just aren't cold enough even though the weather is mild. Icecream is very soft - barely frozen and fridge temp is about 8 degrees...


Sounds like a failure to defrost.
Look on the freezer rear wall inside the freezer for ice bukdup.
If there is ice the defrost components ,must be replaced.

Freezer is cold, ice bin suddenly melts.


Check for air leaks around the dispenser. Check to see if flap is closing properly. Is the icecream hard? If it is soft, check the conderser coils.

Food not totally frozen, icecream melted


if it a frost free freezer then chances are it is a defrost hearter, fan motor or defrost timer
if it is not frost free then it will either be the compressor or a gas leak ( which should be under warranty)

Freezer does not freeze fast enough, icecream gets very soft. The refrigerator is set on temperature level 9 and is not cold.


Setting the control to 9 may make the freezer ice up too much to work right. You can start with a manual defrost. That takes a long time, because the ice is below the freezer liner, stuck in the coils. You'll have to move your food elsewhere, like a cooler. I always take the freezer apart to get at the coils, use a hair dryer to melt the ice. Then you can check the defrost coil, it's like a toaster element. After all that, check the defrost timer too. It's usually down by the compressor area, about the size of a cell phone. It has a small dial on it that only turns one way. Mark it when the fridge is on with whiteout to see if it moves. It moves real slowly, so you will have to wait a half hour or so.
One way to speed up a defrost is to turn the dial on the defrost timer until it clicks. Then the compressor will turn off and the defrost coil will turn on. The freezer fan should be spinning. Feel the output from the freezer fan- anything? If no flow, you're iced up. Keep checking for flow, eventually it should get cold. When you get good airflow, and maybe it's not so cold anymore, you might be defrosted without having to take the whole thing apart. You may have to turn the dial more than once, if the compressor comes back on before you're defrosted. You can help the defrost with your hair dryer thru the vents in the front of the freezer, but not too hot, you don't want to melt any plastic.

Freezer does not freeze fast enough, icecream gets soft


Faulty Cold control (Temperature Control)
The cold control is a temperature actuated switch and should open when the set temperature has been achieved. If the control does not open and turn the compressor off, it will continue to run and all items in the fresh food section will begin to freeze.

If the control is not closing, the compressor and all fans will cease to operate. Check the control for continuity.

This is usually not a do it your selfer.

Frigidaire upright freezer Model #FFU17C3AW1 Not keeping cold


Yes that is the correct part number.
If a new cold control does not correct the problem. Replace the compressor start relay.

Temperature in freezer doesn't come down below freezing point


Searching on line, I noticed some similar problems addressed by technicians and customers. But their diagnosis was consistent: call the repair guy. They believed that the solution to the kind of problem I had was between "dump it" or "pay a big lump of dough to repair. So we replaced the old one.
