SOURCE: Fan running but neither refrig or freezer is getting cold.

Your refrigerator may be stuck in defrost cycle. I know it has a defrost timer part number 215846602 Most times they are located inside the fresh food compartment behind the control panel. Sometimes below fridge and behind kick plate. The thermostat could be defective also. You can check that by unplugging the refrigerator remove cover and checking continuity between the two male connections located on the rear side of thermostat control turned as cold as you can turn it. Or you can join the two wires together and plug refrigerator back in to see if compressor comes on. When you find the defrost time turn clockwise slowly until the refrigerator starts. If these don't work let me know and we will do some more test. Sea Breeze

Try replacing the breaker switcth/capacitor assembly. Is right on the compressor.

How can I get my Frigidaire Dishwasher 900 series to start?


Sounds like you have a bad door switch. You might also have a motor that tends to freeze or lock up. It could possibly be a bad motor capacitor too. Does this help?

The freezer not getting cold enough is defiantly due to the condenser fan motor not working. You would be best served to replace the fan motor with the correct part number though others will work, a small desk fan blowing in the back would work. As to the temperature issue in the refrigerator, you might have a bad t-stat.

Hi, I have a frigadaire rle1405 larder fridge that does not get cold,could you please tell me where the defrost timer is on this model. Thank you.


Many of the frigidaire units had problems with the defrost termination thermostat located in the freezer compartment. (I have repaired many). It is around 12 dollars
It is clipped to a tube located in behind the freezer back panel. take out the
plastic vent and motor, unplug the motor (very carefully to prevent pulling out the
leads) the defrost termination thermostat has two leads and is clipped onto a
tube. The replacement will have heat shrink and wire nuts, but I often use
**** splices under heat shrink tubing to ensure no moisture gets into the connections and a dab of silicone at the ends of the heat shrink. Make sure the "colder" knob
is set in the middle on the vent stack as this will cause problems if set to "colder".
I have only seen one defective defrost timer (incorrectly assembled) which caused the
gear to stick in one position. You can manually rotate the timer to check operation with
a screwdriver in the access hole on the bottom of the temp control panel. (oddly the new timers are of a different make if it has failed). Unplug unit before servicing.

Dual fan is not blowing as cold in the bottom and runs all time


Cannot handle grease, especially in that cold area. Super light weight oil only. Sewing machine oil or equivalent.
The rule in this business has always been. Oil is for preventative maintenance, not repair. If you were having issues with the motor, a new one is the correct proceedure.

Refrigerator does not get cold, motor is running, repairman says get a new one. only 1yr old (frigidair side by side)repairman said sealed system needs to be replaced.


Well, that's great for you since the sealed system is cover with a five year parts and labor warranty. Call a local Frigidaire certified repairman and tell him the situation.
