Does the compressor start when you plug it in and turn on ??(do not get mistaken for the internal fan unit noise if it has one) if so, I would be fairly certain the gas has discharged from the unit and is not financially viable to repair, if the compressor does not start, check the defrost timer (usually located near the compressor in the well housing lower rear of the unit, some have them located on the thermostat housing inside the unit, it will have a small dial located in it, look hard for this item, use a screwdriver and turn this dial clockwise, it the unit awakens, replace the timer. The thermostat may have issues as well, do not attempt to pull this apart, it is dangerous and should only be done by qualified tradespersons.

Hope that helps and the unit awakens and gives you many years of trouble free operation.

Dont forget to vote, thankyou and goodluck.

Frigidaire wont get cold


Hey Rene S, thanks for your post!

In order to reset your Frigidaire refrigerator you would need to disconnect power from it for roughly ten minutes. You can do that by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker. If that does not correct your cooling issue I would recommend contacting a professional to come out and diagnosis your appliance to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt

The freezer compartment of my daewoo FRN-U20DA is not cold enough and the ice is melting. The fan does not come on and there is no fault indicated on the display panel.


when the fan is not working. you cannot expect an ice cause the fan is to drive the cold to become an ice and to maintain the coldness.

Tries to run but not getting cold. can hear things start underneath try to do something and copper tubes get cold, but doesn't get cold.


Well, unfortunately you arent very specific in your question. Remember, your looking for help online, and if you ask why your freezer wont get cold, which as you might guess is the most common problem with a refrigerator or freezer, you need to give me any and all symptoms you have. be specific. is it cold at all, or a little cold, what noises do or dont you hear, how long has it been this way, did you notice this after something occurred, i.e., you cleaned it, or moved it.
Help me help you

Side by side refrigerator is not cold. Bottom freezer is.


if the freezer is cold and the fridge is not then it can be several things. The freezer could have a bunrt out defrost heater, defrost timer faulty, fan not working in the freezer??. all of these things will stop your fridge getting cold, but your freezer will still be around minus 9 deg c. you wont get any air into the fridge as the coil in the freezer is prob all iced over. Dont worry about the heat on the door frame as it is only the anti sweat heater
