DEFROST PROBLEM
The evaporator coil behind the cover on the back wall inside the freezer will ice up under normal conditions. Every 8 to 10 hours for around 20 minutes the defrost timer (or in most newer models the electronic adaptive defrost control) will turn the defrost heater on to melt the built up ice. There is a defrost thermostat which prevents the heater from overheating the freezer by breaking the heater circuit when the temp reaches close to 32 degrees F. The entire cooling system shuts off during the defrost cycle and starts back when the timer advances through the cycle.

If this ice is not melted it will continue to build up until the air can’t flow over the coil to circulate the cold air through the freezer and into the fridge. The temperature change in the fridge is usually noticed first followed by the freezer.

If the defrost thermostat is bad, it can prevent the heater from coming on OR it won’t turn the heater off when it gets too warm. It is clamped to the evaporator coil at the top to sense the temp. If it appears to be misshapen it is bad.
With an ohm meter it should show continuity when cold and none when warm.
You can also bypass(disconnect the two wires plugged into it and twist them together) the thermostat to see if the heater comes on then. If it does then you know the thermostat is bad and needs replaced.

The defrost heater is located on the evaporator. It is in a tube which is at the bottom and can also go up the sides of the evaporator. On some types you can see a burnt spot if it’s bad. With an ohm meter it should show continuity from end to end when disconnected from the wiring in the freezer. You can also test the wiring for voltage when it’s in the defrost mode.

If you have a defrost timer you can test it. It can be located under the fridge behind the kick panel on the front. Some are in the fridge with the controls at the top. You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer because that means the timer is not running. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

If you have an adaptive defrost control instead of a timer, replace it if the heater and thermostat test good. It is located in the fridge with the controls in some models and on the back in others.
You can post your model number into one of several appliance parts sites on the internet and search for defrost components to find your parts.

Why does the unit keep on switching off after running for 2 minutes


Do not know what brand or model your aircon unit is? Sounds as if the temperature you want your unit to run at has already been reached. You need to follow these steps:
- select the temperature you want
- select the icicle icon for cool or thermometer icon for hot.
- select "auto" for your unit to cut in, or to cut off to keep your desired room temp.
For example - hot day 26 degrees and you want the temp in the room to drop to 19 degrees - the unit will shut off once it reaches 19 degrees if it is set to "Auto". Hope this gives you some clues to get it working. Please tick my this helped me box if my tips work. Good luck Gerri.

High temp alarm


Good Afternoon Friend,

I see that you have the High Temp alarm going off on your Frigidaire refrigerator. First, you will want to press the Alarm Off button to turn the alarm off. Next, you will want to press and hold the Factory Default button to put the temperatures at 0 degrees for the freezer and 37 degrees for the refrigerator. Wait 24 hours for the temperatures to stabilize. If you are still having trouble with the alarm going off, reset your appliance by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker for 2-3 minutes. When power is restored, you will need to press the alarm off button. If the High temp alarm is still going off, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

New gallery series frigidaire side by side. 'fridge temp set at 37 degrees, but temp drops to 30 degrees. Everytime I reset to 37 degrees, it eventually goes back down to 30


If it is new (under one year old) then it is under factory warranty, and is not your problem.
Contact your selling dealer and request a service call. There should be no charges to you. Please post back if we are not on the same page as to the age of the machine. Jack

Loud noise coming from icemaker...noise decreases when i increase temp and goes away when icemaker shut off. I set the initial temp at 3 degrees, then let it make ice - after about 3 hours it sounded like...


The icemaker is pretty simple, there is a motor, a solenoid, and a couple of switches.

It sounds like the whole icemaker mechanism is jammed or has a broken gear, and the motor is trying it's darndest to turn the stuck mechanism (grinding it's gears in the process), or the gear has already gone, and what's left of the gear is dancing around in there.

My guess is either the $7 icemaker drive gear or the $94 icemaker assembly.

HELP! Frigidaire Fridge FRS26HF7BB0 losing coldness and buzzing


That noise is typical when the compresor is trying to start but it doesn't , it could be the condensing fan motor that doesn't work and the compresor goes off on overload ; a common problem with this compresors is the relay (mounted at the side of the compresor behind a black plastic cover) goes bad , this you can replace is about $20 , and if still the compresor won't start you will need to put another one and this is an expensive job.

Evaporator unit keeps on building ice. question what is the nornal operating pressure on low side and on the high side for truee freezer using 404 refrigerant


I'll try to give you the "Readers Digest" version.
First, make sure there is no ice build up on the evap. Light frost is O.K. as long as it does not effect air flow. (Very Important). All fans need to be running. Again, an air flow thing. There should be some product in the box but not too close to the evap. Again, an air flow thing.
The expansion device can effect your pressures to some degree i.e. Cap tube vs. TXV.
As a general rule of thumb, which I use almost everyday when it comes to pressures:
Low side is based on the temp difference between evap temp and condition space in the box. In freezers, it is almost always 10 degrees. If the box is 0 degrees then the evap needs to be at a minus 10 degrees. That is a pressure for R-404A of 24.5 psi. This only holds true when the temp in the box is approching set temp. I would say, about +10 degrees. 0 Degrees for the evap for R-404A is 33.5 psi.
High side should be ambient temp +30 degrees and then convert to a pressure for the refrigerant.
Example: 75 degrees in the room, +30 degrees equals 105 degrees. Now 105 degrees converted to a R-404A pressure is 253 psi. This will get you very close to the desired high side pressure.
I would look at low side first to see if it is within reason. Don't let the high side get too high. Increases the compression ratio and overworks the compressor.
Your icing problem could be a defrost issue and not a refrigerant charge issue.

Good Luck and hope this gets you started.

HI showing on digital display frialator 14ss/chhov


When high is displayed it means that the probe and controller is reading that your oil temp is 30 degrees over your set temp. Use an external probe, locate it about one inch above your probe in the tank check actual temp and compare to your set temp. If you find that it is not 30 degrees over than there may be a problem with your probe, wiring or the digital controller. With a multi meter you can check your probe resitance it should be at 942 ohms at 350 degrees.

What tempratues should be set on a honywell 4 cycle thermost during the summer months


As a general rule set your t.sat 20 degrees below outside temp. Leave at this setting 30-45 minutes. Move down until comfortable no lower than 10 degrees below outside for 30-45 minutes. Unit should cycle normally. If it runs continuously then raise the t.stat 3 or 4 degrees up. The national average is 75-78. I usually keep mine set at 80 during the day here in Georgia and 74-78 at night...
