Frigidaire side by side only used 3 weeks (but out of warranty been sitting) stopped getting cold? Seems compressor is running because suction line is cool but NOT COLD and pressure line is barely warm. I was thinking stuck defroster circuit .....How about your thoughts. Thanks RB

Hi, I bought my Frigidaire refridgerator in June 2002. Within a year the compressor had to be changed. In November 2009 the compressor died again. A new one was put in. Last week it quit again. The...


Who is performing this service ? The line he is referring to is the liquid (capillary tube) suction line which is welded together for proper heat exchange. If that is the case then this should be addressed by the manufacturer. Was the system properly evacuated and a new drier installed ?
Was the condenser clean ? The newer refrigerants along with overheated systems cause any moisture in the system to release salt which mixes with compressor oil. This sludge clogs up the capillary tube stopping refrigerant flow.

8 year old side by side, refrigerator and freezer not cold, compressor running, condenser fan running, discarge line not hot suction line not cold


discharge line not hot suction line not cold. This indicates the compressor is not working properly. It could be out of freon or just not pumping.

Frigidaire Side By Side Not Cooling


That sounds like the start relay is buzzing. Unplug and lets check the compressor to see how hot and if too hot to hold your hand on the top of compressor we need to leave it unplugged until we find out if the start relay, start capacitor, overload or if the condenser fan stops after running a short while.

1. First check if your door rubbers seals properly. if not, try and adjust yor doors so that they seal properly.what happens sometimes is that moisture leaks into your fridge.
2. It is also possible that your unit is overgased. you can buy yourself a valve that can be screwed onto the suction pipe line to your compressor. at the back of your fridge you will find a condenser unit that is directly connected to your compressor. that is called the discharge line and you will notice that the discharge line is thinner than the suction line to your compressor. get yourself a set of fridge gauges that you will connect to your valve that you just connected to your suction line. check your psi reading of your suction line under normal running conditions. to get a compartment temperature of minus 18deg celcius your psi reading depending on gas your fridge is charged with should be more or less 4,5 psi. if you have ice build up at the back of your fridge on your suction line your unit is overgased. if your reading on your guage reads less than zero psi then your unit is undergassed. good luck.

Frigidaire refrigerator


check the overload, take it loose and inspect it for a burnt spot shake it if it rattles replace the relay
you either have a relay bad or a stuck compressor
the compressor has a 5 year warranty on the part, the relay 1
so if you relpace the relay and it still doesnt run the compressor, call for serviece under warranty

Frigidaire side by side


there could be a partial restriction in the capiliary line causing higher that normal high side pressure in the system when the compressor is running
have the tech to replace the suction line along with the compressor let them know that this is the third one gone bad
