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.

How do you test a frigidaire thermostat / heater


A frost free refrigerator must defrost itself.
it appears that you have a bad component in the defrost system. first try to advance the defrost time into "defrost cycle" if it start to defrost, replace the timer, if not, replace defrost heater and thermostat.

It quit running and everything thawed. It's got electric going to the dial. plugged it in and can't hear anything running.


The power coming into the fridge goes to the thermostat and when it's time for cooling the thermostat tells the compressor and other components to come on so it has to be the thermostat..Does the light insinde the fridge work? If so i would replace the thermostat and it should fix the problem!!!

Frigidaire Ultrafreeze upright just stopped working


It sounds as if your compressor it's running. This could be a bad compressor, bad capacitor, bad thermostat. See that there are no fans or defrost, it is one of the other. I would start with checking the capacitor. You can replace it with a Supco 3 in 1. It cost around $30.00. Anything else is going to start costing $100.00 and more. If you need a freezer that big, I would have it fixed unless it ends up being the compressor.
Please rate solution

Frigidaire freezer not working


The thermostat may have shorted out so that it is no longer making contact to put power to the compressor. After drying out the components try bypassing the thermostat and see if it will start or make any sound whatsoever. If it does start and run with the thermostat bypassed replace the thermostat. 4-6 inches of water can also get to the relay on the compressor. Replacing the relay and over load assembly also be a good idea.

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.
