You cannot fix it yourself as it is a case of less gas circulation. Please check the cooling gas. It should be full. This can be done by only a technician. Also get the thermostat switch setting. Possible that the switch is not working properly and requires adjustment/replacement.

I have a Frigidaire refrigerato with top freezer that I keep on the back porch. The freezer has quit working completely. The temperature has been below freezing lately and I was wondering in this has...


Good day,
Yes, Frigidaire specifically states any temperature below 55 degrees will unbalance the machine causing the freezer to warm.

This is due to the fact that the thermostat that runs the entire machine is located in the fresh food section. When it reaches it's normal temperature it shuts the entire machine down.
In cold weather it could stay off for the best part of the dy, if not the entire day.

As well. on some model Frigidaire's, they makes a winterizing kit.
It is wired to the thermostat in a manner that heats the thermostat artificially in cold weather to cause it to cycle more.
Contact your local appliance parts house to see if they carry the kit for your machine.

I have a Frigidaire refrigerator with a top mount freezer, no ice maker. I have noticed that in really cold weather, the unit becomes less efficient, and in extreme cases, stuff in the freezer begins to...


Hi,
When it gets very cold the gas (freon) in the refrigeration system shrinks....because the properties that make cold also work against you in this case...when the gas shrinks in volume it then does not work properly anymore...the hot gas does not turn back into a liquid but stays as a gas and because of that it does not cool when going through the expansion device...ie. cap tube or expansion valve. If you were to keep it in the cold all the time you could add a bit of charge to make it work, but then if you move it to warm or the weather warms... now you are over charged... just one of those "no win" deals...
They don't make these things to run in extreme environmental changes..they like it a consistent temp. all the time...

Sounds like the compressor, or a refrigerant leak. Being a year old I would call Frigidaire and try to get it fixed or replaced under warranty.

Keep a refrigerator/freezer in garage. The


Good day,
Yes. Domestic appliances will not work properly below approx 55 degrees.
The freezer suffers most simply because the machine runs rarely at 55 degrees and degrades as the temp goes lower.
They are designed to balance properly when in an environment where people live. Ideally 70 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
The machine is not broken.
Moving it inside, is the only solution.

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.

Frigidaire not dumping the ice


Hi: Dumping the ice is the start of the ice making timer. Before you replace the ice maker... Set the freezer one setting colder. The ice maker wont make ice if the freezer is not at zero degrees F. Just because things are frozen in it dosn't mean it is at zero. This happens a lot in the summertime. After resetting the temp don't open the door every hour to see if it makes ice as you will just dump the cold air out. Listen for the ice to dump, give it 24hrs. I hope this helps, Jeff

Does outside temperature affect performance of freezer


Top mount refrigerator installed in a garage and the food in the freezer is defrosting when
the temperature in the garage goes below 55 degrees fahrenheit.
On top mount refrigerators you cycle the compressor and fan/fans from the food
compartment temperature. When the room temperature gets colder than 55 F, you have
long off times waiting for the food compartment to warm enough to trip the cold control.
This long off time is allowing the freezer temperature to get high enough that food can start
to defrost.
There is a kit for refrigerators installed in applications where the temperature can go as low
as 34 F and still maintain good freezer temperatures. The kit part number is 5303918301
and it contains a heater that mounts in the control box and an instruction sheet advising
how to install the heater.
Kit 5303918301 contains:
Part # 5303950194 Instruction sheet
Part # 241532101 Heater
