If your fridge is working without any complaint then it is possible that the door switch is defective due to some contact fault.
You can check the door switch contacts, check voltage to confirm.
If not trace to the power section/power circuit for loss of voltage.

I have a side by side frigidaire model PHS68EJSB0 and the display panel that shows the freeser and refrigerator temperature is not working and is not lighting up . also there is a beep every few seco

Sounds like a repair tech needs to diagnose the control board for a replacement. Make sure the temperatures inside are not increasing so you don't lose food items.

Side by side Sub Zero light switch works intermittently.

I had the same problem with my sub-zero and finally resolved it (much to my wife's delight) by just replacing it. R&R was a lot simpler than having to work on it every time my wife had a problem.

No light, no cooling in refrigerator, but cold freezer Americana A3316ABSDRWW

This usually means you have ice build up between the two units. Defrost the freezer and if possible let it sit to completely thaw all ice from the channels that allow cold air from the freezer to move to the Refrigerator side. You will also want to check your door seals to make sure you don't have any leaks or a bad seal causing your issue. The issue with the light is most likely a burned Bulb or bad switch. Replace the bulb and see if that resolves the issue. You also need to check and make sure the fans are working properly which move the air from the freezer to the refrigerator side and that all the cooling grill son the unit are clean and not clogged with dust build up.

Thanks for contacting

If you have a fridge with a working light, but no cold air, the first thing you should do is check the temperature setting to make sure it is set properly. Next, you will need to clean the refrigerator part known as the condenser coils. These are located on the back of the fridge, and these coils are a refrigerator part that gets very dirty. Cleaning them can restore lost efficiency, but you will need to disconnect the fridge first before cleaning this set of refrigerator parts. You should also insure that there is a three-inch dead space between the refrigerator and the walls near the unit.

Thank You

Good afternoon, we just had our power turned back

Hi! I know this may sound weird, but you should try to wash it with vinegar, plain vinegar will do the trick. Also, I don't know if you have this in your country, but sour lemon it is good too, for this kind of situations.
After this treatment it is applied, wash it with a cleaning solution mixed with water, then rinse with simple water.
I hope this will help you! Have a nice day!

You have a compressor that is trying to start but is not able and is going off on overload. A tech can try a "hard start kit" if the compressor is still unable to start then don't spend any more on it, get a new fridge
