I have a ffus2613lp. Yesterday the alarm started going off with the doors closed. The inside temperature raised to room temperature. I pulled it out, cleaned everything, including compressor/coils. ...


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand the Hi Temperature alarm was going off on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FFUS2613LP, and the temperature was room temperature. I also see that you pulled out your appliance and cleaned everything, including the compressor and coils. You turned your refrigerator back on and it froze a cup of water before you went to bed. However, when you woke this morning, your refrigerator was back at room temperature. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine why it keeps warming to room temperature. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Dusty compressor won't hurt. Dirty condensing coil can burn out the compressor. Supco makes a 3 n 1 start kit with very easy instructions, be sure to remove cap and external overload, this may kick start the compressor. If this fails then your compressor is bad, clicking inside is the overload. If you have the proper tools, go for replacement. Vacuum pump, gauges, scale to weigh in the ounces of 134a listed on the model number label, new liquid filter is a must, access port for low side if not present etc, etc. good luck.

Model GSI-26 suddenly stopped cooling


It sounds like your compressor is having a hard time starting. Take your model number to an appliance parts store and ask for a compressor start relay. It plugs directly into your compressor and is easily replaced. Remember to unplug the refer first.

Icebox not cold


Hello - From what you have described it sounds like you might be experiencing some form of sealed system issue or a bad door seal. This can include the compressor not working correctly, the evaporator fan not turning, or even coolant in the lines not at the correct levels to properly cool. If the compressor is running, humming, or even a little warm then that is typically normal. However if the compressor is running hot, then it is over working and the issue could be before the compressor in the evap fan, coil or coolant lines. When was the last time you cleaned the condensers? You may do so by removing the toe grille and use extended vacuum attachment and condenser cleaning brush to remove dust buildup from condenser coils usually located on the left side underneath. If you hear the compressor running and if it is providing warm air then that means it is operating correctly and the sealed system is removing heat from the cabinet. Fan motor/evaporator may be the primary issue. However, if you do not hear the compressor and the unit is blowing room temperature then the unit may possibly have a sealed system leak, faulty compressor or overload relay. Try checking if the door seal is bad; place a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet double check the door from closing then replace the gasket. If any proves to be ineffective, you would need to contact your manufacturer and then a professional to move forward accurately.

might be your compressor relay gone bad. if the condenser fan was running and no compressor that could be the case. Also could be a bad compressor. you could try installing a 3in1 start kit. cost about $30. if doesn't start with that then compressor is kaput.
