Question about Frigidaire GLRS234ZA Side by Side Refrigerator

Frigidaire side by side

My frigidaire side by side is not cooling at all on either side... there is a humming noise and clicking coming from the compressor. All coils are clean and dust free. The unit is only 4 yrs old. Would this possibly be the compressor?

Thanks!

Sounds very much like it is the compressor that is malfunctioning. It should still be covered by warranty by the manufacturer.

Not freezing or cooling and compressor clicking on and off


From your description it sounds like the start components (start relay, overload and capacitor) are having problems. The clicking you hear is probably the overload kicking out to protect the compressor. It is quite possible that the compressor simply has gotten too hot and after sitting a while will restart when plugged back in. The start components are not generally considered 'user serviceable' parts. When the compressor has cooled to pretty much room temp, plug it in and be listening for those clicks. If you hear them, unplug it because it could eventually damage the compressor. Those components give the compressor an extra jolt to get the compressor running then they drop out of the circuit. If the compressor doesn't start, it creates heat until the overload drops out.

Frigidaire refrigerator/freezer side by side not kicking on. Both freezer and refrigerator not cooling.


If the unit is not cooling in either section of the appliance, you are experiencing some form of sealed system issue. This can include the compressor not working correctly, the evaporator fan not turning, or even coolant in the lines not at the correct levels to properly cool. If the compressor is running, humming, or even a little warm then that is typically normal. However if the compressor is running hot, then it is over working and the issue could be before the compressor in the evap fan, coil or coolant lines. Unless the unit is displaying an error code, often alpha-numeric, then you would need to contact your manufacturer and then a professional to move forward accurately.

Sub zero. 650 reefer. Significant hum coming from top mounted compressor, but still marginal cooling. Now a louder hum and unit no longer cooling.


Hi roger,

I see you concern, and if the unit does not cool anymore and there is a humming noise then you will need to replace or have your compressor repaired no doubt.

Have a nice day,

Humming noise would be your compressor going bad. The noise from the fan is because they are over working to try and keep everything cool
