Question about Frigidaire Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a frigidaire RL6003B - it is running all the time and the thermostat appears not to be working. Is this likely - the cost of a replacement thermostat compared with a new fridge is a good part of the price

If the temps. seem normal, it is probably low on refrigerant. If it is freezing the milk and wilting the salad, then the thermostat has died.

If in the US, you might check with Johnstone Supply to see if they stock the thermostat used in your fridge; they are basically wholesale but have never asked for a business license and their prices range from 20-50% of dealer costs and the thermostats are only made by a few companies, they are not proprietary.

Where is the thermostat on a frigidaire refrigerator

Hello Friend, this is Z. Thank you for allowing me to assist you!

It appears that your Frigidaire refrigerator (GLRS2372AW7) has a manual thermostat. The sensing bulb for the fresh food thermostat will wrap around the front of the damper housing. The sensing bulb for the freezer thermostat will pass below the damper housing and extend into the freezer compartment. I hope this information helps to some degree.

Frigidaire Refridgerator not cooling. Worked for about 2 weeks after replacing defroster

The first thing you want to do is open the freezer and see if the fan inside there is running. The reason is the freezer cools the refrigerator side by circulating air from the freezer. If the fan is running then your problem is one or more parts of the defrost system is malfunctioned and in return your problem arises. There are three parts to the system, the defrost timer or in some cases control board, defrost thermostat also known as a bi-metal, and the defrost heater. The defrost system is set up to operate as so. The defrost timer or control board will turn the machine off, in some cases every 8 hours, some 12. During this time period the defrost heaters, located behind the freezer wall and rest underneath the evaporator, yet wires to them run up the side of it, are energized and emit heat that raises upward to melt the ice that has formed on the evaporator coils. The bi-metal or defrost thermostat is at the top of the evaporator. When the heat from the heater starts to reach the bi-metal, it breaks the circuit turning the heater off. The whole purpose of this is because the freezer cool the refridgerator side by drawing air across the coils and blowing to the other side via the evap fan motor. In my opinion, if you change one part of the defrost system change them all because usually when one part fails another will follow, so save yourself the time and the food loss, the cost difference is minute

Frigidaire Gallery Side by Side - Fridge not cooling

Locate the defrost timer and rotate the dial a small amount clockwise. If the compressor starts the timer should be replaced. If the compressor does not start check the temperature control. It may be bad, if it is bad try jumpering the thermostat wires. If it starts and runs the thermostat is bad. Replace the thermostat.
