Question about Kitchen Ranges

Open Question

We have a Frigidaire fridge (P/N: 240379015) that keeps shutting off. To get it to turn back on we have to unplug the fridge and turn the dials down to zero. It's happening quite frequently (once a day)... Any suggestions?

Sounds like an air flow problem to the lower unit. Take the sheetmetal or plastic rear cover off the freezer back wall and make sure the coils are frosted up good and even but NOT a block of ice inches thick (air needs to circulate and a blocked coil won't let air move over it efficiently). Make sure the fan is running to move the air around. In the fridge area make sure the air dampers are letting the cold air from the freezer down to the fridge compartment. Depending on what you find will determine the next steps so let us know.

SOURCE: power problems

The set is detecting a problem internally and shutting down to prevent further damage. This is often call protection mode. I would guess that there is either a bad connection somewhere or a part starting to fail. If there is a pattern to the failures, a quick trip to the repair shop is in order armed with that info. Rough guess would be abaout $30 in parts plus the local labor rate. This is based upon my own repair experience with these systems.

Ho wdo I get my small fridge (Frigidaire model no frc05l5db1) to stop freezing everything.


Sounds like the thermostat is not shutting the unit down and needs to be replaced to restore to proper operation.

Freezer temperature down to 6 degrees.. What should it be and how to fix it?


Hello your fridge should have a TEMP. DIAL located inside one of the doors or at the upper most portion of the fridge. You will need to adjust the dial to a warmer setting. Normally turning it COUNTER CLOCKWISE will increase the temp. You will notice the temp range by looking at the dial as it will be marked accordingly.

I have been looking over the wiring diagram for about 10 minutes. I see nothing other than the thermostat being the problem. I need someone to unplug the refrigerator and go into the control panel and disconnect the two wires going to thermostat and plug refrigerator back in and then give me the results. You feel comfortable doing that? Sea Breeze

Unit shut down for 24 to 36 hrs whith power to it/ lights inside still worked


By shut down I'm assuming you mean the compressor does not come on. Does your unit use dials or electronic controls ? Try raising the dial to max and see if compressor kicks in - otherwise unplug the fridge for a few minutes and plug it back in to see if it resets - you either have a shot compressor or a faulty control board (faulty control board being more common) followed by stuck defrost timer.

Side by side fridge not cooling, not making ice


if it seems like the evaporator is getting cold then your sealed system should appear to be ok. you need the evap fan to transfer cold air into fresh food section. if not turning u need to replace fan motor. make sure your not getting to much frost build up on the evap.

Check the fan in the freezer side to make sure it is running. If the fan is running and you have frost, then you have a defrost problem, Heater is not coming on to melt ice. If fan is not running replace fan.

Freezer works great, as it should, but fridge is only keeping items room temp. I have the setting at the coldest setting: #7. What is wrong?


Here's what I did, I defrosted! I found out that the fridge temp is monitored and maintained by the freezer. Because we had a power outage one night, my freezer thawed while we all slept and then when power came back on, freezer re-froze but this cause an ice build up on the vent on the back wall of the freezer. Well, ice must have been in one (or more) vents, causing blocked air flow in my top half of the refrigerator. I turned the dial in the freezer to "off" which also shuts down power to the fridge half. I then unplugged the refrigerator, hauled all my food items into coolers, opened the freezer door and refrigerator doors and left them open for a little over six hours. I took advantage of this empty fridge and freezer and wiped everything down. After this time frame passed, I plugged the fridge back in, turned the freezer dial to my preferred freezer temp, and wah-lah! Within two hours I had a cold fridge and solid ice cubes in the freezer. I then put all my food items back into their appropriate compartments, and went to work. Bear in mind, a total 24-hour period is needed for the fridge to re-set itself, but still, after two hours the fridge was noticeably cold. Who knew, besides our parents' generation: DEFROST!

Locate the defrost timer and rotate the dial a small amount clockwise. If the compressor starts the timer should be replaced. If the compressor does not start check the temperature control. It may be bad, if it is bad try jumpering the thermostat wires. If it starts and runs the thermostat is bad. Replace the thermostat.

Power Problem


You will certainly have to replace the thermostat. Typical problem is once temp. is reached, it takes forever to come on.
