My advice would be for you to exchange it, in lieu of it being a major component (compressor, etc.). There could be a fuse ahead of the control panel, but aside from that, you'll have to troubleshoot the unit and replace a part(s). It's wiser to just get another one. These units had great ratings on the net, and shouldn't be failing.
Good luck, thanks for using FixYa, and hope this helps.

    Some compressors have a reset switch (protection switch to prevent overheating). Not sure if a compact has that, but check near the compressor. If the dorm room got hot during the day, it could have overworked it. Thermostat could be bad, and keepinjg it shut off. A component or relay on the control board could be bad. Could be a bad contactor. Hope you figure it out, or get it replaced if you can.

Hello,

Check for the power supply. You need to see if the refrigerator is plugged in properly. Also check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker. See if there is any damage to the electrical cord and check the outlet voltage. Troubleshoot the problem and if you do not find any of the above reasons as the cause of refrigerator not working, call the repairman.

Take care.

Model FRT045GB


Good Morning Jr. Riojas,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire compact refrigerator, model# FRT045GB, and it not cooling. I also see that you have reset your refrigerator, by unplugging it, and it works fine for two weeks, then you have to repeat resetting it. I suggest contacting either the manufacturer or your local authorized technician for further assistance. They should be able to better assist as to why your refrigerator cools for a few weeks and then you have to unplug it for it to cool a couple more. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Compact Refrigerator stop cooling, I am out of ideas.


Good day,
If you hear the compressor running, then the overload and relay are O.K. It can be one of three things.
1. Leak developed in system.
2. Restriction internal in the refrigerator sealed system.
3. Valves in compressor failed, which would not provide any pumping action for the refrigerant.

None of these items are practical repairs on a compact. But if it's under warranty (under 5 years old), check with the selling dealer for warranty claim.
P.S. Does not apply if coils were punctured.

Thank you for using FixYa

Loud buzzing noise on a Magic Chef compact refrigerator help!


Disconnect power from unit. Remove the cover at the bottom, rear. Examine all refrigerant tubing for contact with other tubing or other surface. Carefully adjust the tubing to prevent contact vibration.

My daughter's Emerson CR500 compact refrigerator completely stopped getting cold about four months after we purchased it. It would cost me $57 to ship it to CA to have it fixed, so I'm wondering if it...


My husband and I bought this same refrigerator around 11/2009 and it doesn't work now either. We too bought this refrigerator at a local target. Yikes. We bought ours for our daughters dorm room and it didn't stay working even one year. Is that how Emerson told you to handle it - by shipping that stupid thing to CA. Thats ridiculous.

Freezer works, fridge not cooling but water was leaking from under fridge a few weeks ago, could not find source . Small compact frigidaire unit for dorm room.


Most if not all fridges under $2000 only use a single compressor meaning the refrigeration is provided by venting the freezer air into the compartment. Water under the unit likely indicates the fridge is not properly sealing and moisture is condensing on the cold coils and dripping.

sound to me that the unit may be stuck in defrost. look for the time clock and or if it is a newer unit check your condenser coil it may be dirty. the unit may also have a leak on the refrigeration side of it.
