Frigadair top freezer thaws and is soft frozen when we come home from vacation, food is still cold 20 degrees, then while home freezer works fine?


Probably defrost timer not working properly, or the door is not closed or defrost depends on freezer door opening?
Appliance parts websites usually are very helpful.

I bought a danby fridge dff280wdb at an auction it was not plugged in but is new with all the tags . i had to lay it on it's back to bring it home but i let it stand for 3 hours before plugging it


I would suspect there is no refrigerant in the system any more. Sounds like there was a leak (hissing and odor). Not worth getting it fixed if that is the case.

You are cycling on the compressor overload, meaning the compressor is drawing excessive amperage, the overload takes it out then it cools down and tries again. the normal amp draw for those compressors is 3-4 amps. Have you checked the condenser fan and made sure the coil is clean?
unfortunately those compressors cannot be serviced

HI,

ROPER RS22AQXMQ SIDE BY SIDE REFRIGERATOR PROBLEM


I had the same problem with a top freezer. I found that the thermostat was bad by tapping on the it at the setting knob. The defrost timer was replaced first which did not help (repairman put in a timer for a Frigadair which will not work in a Roper). If one is used for a frigadair as soon as it cycles it will not work again until it is unplugged and allowed to reset. I replaced both the thermostat and the right defrost timer. It has worked great for over 2 months.

Hope this helps.
