Question about Frigidaire Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a Frigidaire RL003B. The problem is that the unit seems to be continually running. I would expect it to switch off when it gets down to tem., and to switch back on when the temp. rises. Does this mean it needs regassing? If so how do I go about getting it done?

My Frigidaire FRS26H5AS temperature control on the freezer section does not seem to work.

Hello Greg Olsen, thanks for your post!

From my understanding your Frigidaire refrigerator, FRS26H5AS, runs continuously and the only way to stop it is by unplugging the power cord. It sounds like you may have a possible faulty thermostat or control panel and that is why the compressor will not shut down. I would recommend consulting with a professional for proper diagnosis and repair to be completed. I hope this information has been helpful. -Matt

If the unit is washing properly, as far as you can tell, but it won't stop spinning, then I would have a professional look at the control panel and timer to be diagnosed because there seems to be in miscommunication.

The freezer seems to be running a lot. Is this normal for an energy efficient freezer?

Good day,
Yes, the new high efficiency units tend to run a lot compared to older models. That in fact is not a bad thing, since the compressor has to cycle on and off fewer times per day, and starting and stopping are what create wear and tear on refrigeration equipment. Actually you pay less because of the much smaller compressor that uses less power.

However, keep an eye on it. If it gets continually worse going forward, call for service. Hopefully Frigidaire has solved it's problems but was known to develop internal restrictions in the refrigeration system causing that problem to the point it runs continuously and fails to cool properly.
If the machine is under 5 years of age it would be corrected free of charge.

Frigidaire SbS fridge FRS26ZGED3 intermittent - smacking helps

I have been looking over the wiring diagram for about 10 minutes. I see nothing other than the thermostat being the problem. I need someone to unplug the refrigerator and go into the control panel and disconnect the two wires going to thermostat and plug refrigerator back in and then give me the results. You feel comfortable doing that? Sea Breeze

Dose not seem to keep cold and tem control flsshes

The control panel light would flash if the compressor overheats( due to constantly being on & running) This could be a result due to leakage of refrigerant gas(freon, CF4,etc.), hence get the gas pressure checked too when getting repaired.The red light could also be an indication that the drain pipe(s) being clogged. Finally get the thermostat checked and replace if it is not maintaining the temperature it is being set for.....................sodeep
