It would appear that you have a fused contactor. If you dont feel comfortable replacing this check on one of the experts on this site. or if you feel ok replacing it remove the case off the old unit. Make sure it is unplugged first. There are two leads coming from the compessor follow these to the block they are connected to this is the contactor you will need to respond with the voltage and amperage rating off of this to size your new one just take the screws loose from both sides of each wire keep track of where they connect to then put the wires in the new contactor the exact opposite of what you rmoved them. Reinstall the cover and you should be good to go

My convertible freezer/refrigerator model FKCH17F7HWA now runs continually. What can be the problem? It is a Frigidaire.


Either the thermostat is not shutting down properly when unit has reached set temp or the control is stuck in "on" position.

A loss of refrigerant can also cause the issue since the unit never reaches set temps.

When turn off. makes a humming sound. compressor seems to be running.


Have same issue with 3 year old Frigidaire dehumidifier purchased in 2012. Must unplug to stop compressor running with power switch turned off. Unit gets hot and smells. Unplugging creates arcs at outlet since unit is pulling a lot of power. Plugging back in after some hours will make it appear to run normally and again remove moisture but it will not shut off when the fan goes off (humidistat bad?) and the set-point is reached. Cannot leave plugged in due to safetty/fire/overheating concern. Have not found answer on this forum or any other so far.

Freezer motor will not turn on


Try cleaning the unit out and any coils you can reach (typically located near the bottom of the unit behind the toe grille). Do you hear the compressor running? The compressor is constantly meant to go on and off frequently to keep unit at a constant temperature. If you do not, the unit could possibly have a coolant leak or an issue with the internal sealed system including a faulty compressor, evaporate fan or main control board. Contact a professional move forward accurately.

Frigidaire model FSC23F7DSB7 freezer not working


Hi - Have you had any issues before with the freezer or the refrigerator portion changing temps? You could have a floating restriction in the lines, that only a professional can help with. You can clean the unit out, clean any coils you can reach, and make sure no food items are blocking any vents in the unit. Do you hear the compressor kick on? If not then the unit may possibly be experencing a sealed system issue. Then, contact Frigidaire to have a professional diagnose the unit before the temperature rises more. Freezers should be around 0?F and refrigerators around 34-37?F.

About once a week the compressor get hot and shuts off. I have to leave hom for 12 hours then turn unit on and it cools for another week and shuts off again?


If compressor starts, check the running current of the compressor. If amperage is too high together with the discharge pressure, try cleaning the condenser fins and then after cleaning test the amperage and pressure again. If the pressure is still above the normal operating of 300psi, release some freon. If the discharge is too low below 200psi and running ampere of compressor is below the rated ampere of the unit add some freon from the suction line until it reaches 60-65psi. If still suspicious with the unit, try removing all freon charge and evacuate the system to 30 in. Hg to remove any moisture from the system and hold the vacuum for 30 minutes. If no increase in system pressure, recharge and check pressures and amperage.

We have a MXZ-3A30NA that does not seem to be cooling down the house. Indoor temps are reading 75 to 78 degrees and the units are set at 65. We have gone through the book and have followed the check list...


Hi!!

Check the following:

Make sure the filter and the evaporator coil are clean. Also check condenser coil in the outside unit is clean.

When unit is turned on there should be (on the led display, inside unit) one green light on for the blower and another one for the compressor, both lights should be ON untill the unit reaches the preset temp. If the light for the compressor (usually the light on the right side) does not stay ON, check the outside unit.

On the outside unit, check that when turned on, both the fan and the compressor kick in and stay running. If the fan motor stops, the compressor overheats and the thermal proteccion shuts it down to prevent damage. Also, if the R22 gas is low, the low pressure switch prevents the compressor from running.

Good Luck!!

When unit starts the condensor fan only comes, not compressor


You need a new fan motor and the correct capacitors for your sydtem I think they are 35 or 45 5 cap. Try a hard start kit on compressor. Are you sure you have the cap wired correctly?Russ
