Hi,

This problem could occur due to various reason.First you have to resolve for the cause of the issue.
First Check the back wall or floor of the freezer section for frost.The Freezer(evaporator) fan is running?.This fan problem is very hard to detect.
The DC motor for the fan wears out the RPM's are effected.It gives the illusion that it is running fine,but it don't have enough force to supply air circulation for both the freezer
and the refrigerator See weather the condenser coil for
blockage from dust and the condenser fan is running.

1)Defrost timer
Usually the defrost timer could solve this issue.It may be located below or back of the refrigerator.Some times it may be located in the side to for side refrigerator.
Locate the timer and rotate the clutch head screw clockwise until you hear one audible click. That puts the system into defrost mode. If the system restarts after 30-35 minutes.
Then there is no problem with Defrost timer.

I have a Fridgerare which - 1a89b50.jpg

2)Temperature control
Understand the flow of cold air is from freezer this is controlled by Temperature control unit.The temperature looks like the below diagram

Remove the front knob
There will be a pair of wire type connections attached with Temperature control unit.
Set the ohms setting on your multitester to X1 and attach one probe to each terminal. Turn the temperature control to off or to the warmest setting if there is no off position. The multitester should give you a reading of infinity if the control is on off and a reading of near infinity if there is no off position. Then turn the control to the coldest setting and retest. Now, the multitester should give you a reading of zero. If both of these tests are not passed, the control needs to be replaced.

The bill acc. blinks 3 times, bill & cion mechs have been changed, still blinks three times. won't take any money or vend.


Try it without the bill acceptor attached to get the machine working. You did not say what kind of acceptor but three flashes often mean a bad sensor in the unit. Another possibility is that it is disabled from the vendor. Check that all the columns have returned to home position if it is a bag vendor. If it is a pop machine then take off the metal cover over the vend motors and CAREFULLY push down on the microswitches to see if the motors run. Pop may fall out as you do this so watch for it. After running all the motors or homing out all the columns try you machine again. You will probably have to get the bill acceptor fixed though.

I have the same problem with my Antares vending machine. Do you know what the model number is on that Frigidaire freezer? I want to buy a new evaporator but can't seem to find it.


You need to contact Frigidaire Parts Division. You need an evaporator for their EDINA Model FMR7. The part number is 216701200. It should cost approx. $100.00. This should be all you need. Good luck.

There is a little sensor board in the door where the flapper door is,you can access it when the door is open.That is what tells the main control that the can has fallen down through the door and the door has closed.

My Edina cold soda vending machine which was made by Frigidare is not getting cold. The previous owner (my neighbor who I trust) said it had always worked fine. It had been in his garage, unplugged, for...


I have some of those machines. What happens to them is that the evaporators, which are made out of steel, rust out in approx. 7 years. This allows the R134A to leak out. If you can peek back through to the back wall, you will see where the rust has run down. The solution is to order a new evaporator from Frigidaire at around $100.00 and get someone to change this out and recharge the unit. Before turning it over to the mechanic, you may want to remove the vending module which includes the inner doors and plastic shelves. This can be done in 15 minutes and makes the job easier for the mechanic which can save you money. You should end up with less than $300.00 for the total cost of the repair, but since these machines are rather popular, they can be had on ebay fairly cheap. Sometimes you can pick up new machines for five or six hundred dollars. These are the same as the Antares machines which are made by Edina. I hope this helps.
