If the unit is less than 1 year old call Frigidaire factory service. In the mean time check in the back of the freezer or in air channels for frost build-up. It may indicate a defrost problem or air leak. still best to have factory tech check if in warranty.

I have an elecrolux frc252gw compact fridge that will not run. totally dead. Can yiu help?

Hey Michael, thank you for your post!

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator is not working. If your appliance is not getting any power I would recommend trying a different outlet in your home. If your refrigerator is getting power but not cooling it could be an issue within the cold control or compressor. Is your appliance still under warranty? If so, you might want to reach out directly to the manufacturer to determine the coverage on your compact refrigerator and the procedures to any potential remedy. There are no additional service manuals for your appliance. Hope this helps. -Matt

Electrolux diagnostics for refrigerator with freezer on bottom

Hey friend, thank you for your post!
Based off the information you have provided your Electrolux refrigerator is running but not cooling. It could be possible that your refrigerator is stuck in a defrost mode. I would suggest resetting your appliance which can be done by flipping the household circuit breaker for roughly ten minutes. If that does not correct the issue I would seek assistance from a professional to come repair your appliance. -Matt

Model FRT045GB

Good Morning Jr. Riojas,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire compact refrigerator, model# FRT045GB, and it not cooling. I also see that you have reset your refrigerator, by unplugging it, and it works fine for two weeks, then you have to repeat resetting it. I suggest contacting either the manufacturer or your local authorized technician for further assistance. They should be able to better assist as to why your refrigerator cools for a few weeks and then you have to unplug it for it to cool a couple more. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Electrolux refrigerator not cooling

Is your freezer side working fine? If it is, and it is just the refrigerator portion of your appliance, then I would check the damper switch/door that is between the doors. The freezer actually sends its cool air into the refrigerator portion to help cool it.

I have a 6-2003 Frigidaire side by side Model#FRS23F4CW0 Electrolux refrigerator. It gets hot in the middle of both doors the frame only. Is that normal.

Mine did the same thing and then stopped cooling within a few weeks. I opened up the lower back cover to check the coils for dust and found that the fan had stopped working. I took a box fan and blew air through the coils and it started working just fine. Now I just need to fix the fan problem and I'm back in business. Bottom line: check under the fridge to make sure the coils are able to dissipate the heat.
