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...

The top of my refigerator is freezing in the back


Hi, the problem you are having is the defrost timer not going into defrost mode when the timer says to. They are normally located in the bottom back of the unit and will have a screw driver slot on it. It may be stuck in the off position. Turn it a click with a screwdriver and see if this starts the defrost mode and other problems. Is the evaporator fan in the freezer up and running? If not, this motor must be on. Keep me posted on this and we can get to the bottom of the problem.
Sincerely,

Frigidaire FRS23R4CW2 side by side refigerator It is running but it is not cold at all. the fan work I check the back of the refigerator. what is the problem.


Hi, if the condenser fan is up and running at the back, what about the compressor? When the fan is on, the compressor should also be on. Place your hand on top of the compressor, but carefully as it could be very HOT if it is locked up! If it is hot, more then likely the compressor has failed and is off on its overload. If you can hear it click on and off so often, it is stuck and tripping on the overload. Check the condenser coil in back to make sure it has no layer of dust covering the front of the coil. This will cause internal pressures in the system to be very high causing the compressor to stop. Check and make sure the fan in the freezer, evaporator fan is also running. Check what I have asked of you and keep me posted.
Sincerely,

Refigerator is freezing food


Hi, this problem is going to be with the running thermostat. It has gone bad and stays open which in turn will keep the compressor running continually. It can normally be located in the control panel inside the fridge. Locate the thermostat and replace it. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!!

As a start, try cleaning the coils and fan under the refrigerator.

You would not believe how many refrigerators and freezers I've worked on which required nothing but a good coil cleaning. The dirtier these coils get, the less efficient the unit becomes until it reaches a point that it almost appears as if the refrigerant unit is not working at all when all it really needs is a good cleaning.

While you're under there, be sure the fan is running to pull air over the coils to cool and condense the freon inside them.

Car added refigerent fron was low
