Frigidaire not cooling off

I have had the frigidaire FRS6LR5EM2 for about 2 years now and yesterday it just started heating up and will not cool at all. I took the back panel off to clean the condensor coils off but they weren't really dirty..... The compresor was mildly hot....I unplugged it for a little while and then plugged it back in and the line from the compressor got really cold for about 20 seconds, then warmed up again.... any ideas?

Hello, You are more than likely having a freon issue.  The problem sounds like a filter drier restriction.  This could be a simple fix.   It will require some indepth time. Bill

How do I replace the heating elembent in a frigidaire FRAM18ER2A ac/heating UNIT

This type of unit does not normally have a heating element, it is a heat pump. In summer if blows cold air through the front and hot air out of the vent at the back. In winter, cool air is drawn in through the back, heated by the compressor and vented out of the front vents.

The manual is here. It seems Frigidaire Service is the only answer.

Wiring diagram is here. The unmarked item, 2/3rds down on the left may be an element.

This intimates it has a 4000 watt to 4900 watt element depending on voltage supply.

Voltage Rating: 240V / 208V 60Hz
Amps (Cool): 8.4 / 9.2
Watts (Cool): 1900 / 1880
Amps (Heat): 22.2 / 20.0
Watts (Heat): 4900 / 4000
Horsepower (Cool): 2.49
Power Cord Length: 5' (6')
Plug Type: 6-30P

Despite my best searches I can't find anyone selling gthe element. Try these two companies though

Frigidaire window air conditioner LRA157MT1 worked yesterday. Today fan works but it doesn't cool?

unplug it if you can and let it set for 20 minutes, set the temp control where you want it and plug it in, wait a bit and see if it starts cooling. you can confuse these things if you turn it off and on rapidly or change the temp control up and down sporadically. The compressor has to take it's time to kick on after it has been shut off and then on again.

Frigidaire Air conditioner: fas296n2a2 Compressor

Do you have an amp meter? and volt meter. Are you sure that the compressor is getting power? The click may simply be a relay closing but no power. Check both sided of the relay. You will need to trace the power and make sure that the compressor is getting power. Then check the amps to see how much power it's pulling.

Freezer Problem

If it started to cool again the compressor was running. Check the condenser and make sure it is clean. Provide as much air movement through the garage as possible . 100 degrees is a high temperature to be operating a refrigerator in.
