SOURCE: Not cool at all!

If the compressor is running you should be cooling unless there is a major loss of refrigerant. What we do for these complaints is to first let the refer run for a few hours then pull the interior rear panel off the freezer section back wall and check the frost pattern on the coils. It should be a nice white frost pattern all the way across the coils (no bare alum. showing and no mass of ice either). If you don't have that pattern then there is a sealed system issue. If you have a massive block of ice all over the coils then you have a defrost cycle issue (not getting proper air circ. due to the block-o-ice thing). Let us know what you find... oh, you can sometimes find the leak by looking for oily residue from the compressor lubricating oil (it leaks out where the gas does also).

SOURCE: Frigidaire stand alone Refrigerator won't cool Fans and Compressor work

Ended up having a freon leak in tubing around door. Luckly the warranty was 5 years in sealed system. New one was FREE.

SOURCE: frigidaire humming freezer not cold enough

For the 25 year old freezer: a replacement compressor of the same BTU rating can be obtained and used as a replacement BUT at 25 years old I DO Not recommend the expense of a compressor replacement.

To the owner of the six year old freezer. The buzzing noise is more than likely the compressor cycling on its overload protector. This is an indication that the compressor has failed. In this case also I do not recommend replacing the compressor. If it was in warranty the manufacturer would bear the cost. Replacement compressor come with a one year warranty.

SOURCE: freezer/ fridge not cooling, compressor not running

this refig has 2 independent temp controls one that operates the freezer side (this one also operates compressor, condenser fan and evporator fan) and one that controls the temp for the fresh food side this one operates a damper and evaporator motor.
I looked up you model number and you need to check the control that is located to the left side of the control panel or the freezer control. if it is 60f in the unit then if this control is good it should read infinity on a ohms meter. if its bad you will get no reading at all. alternatley you may try hitting the control solidly with the **** of a screwdriver sometimes the contact will hange open. message me back if you need further assistance. peyton...

What is the cubic feet of Kenmore refrigarator model #253.562824on and also need mearsurements of outside.


You seem to be missing a few digits in the model number. Sears Parts Direct lists 11 refrigerator models that start 253.562824. (The full models numbers have 2 extra characters, including 253.56282400 and 253.5628240N.) See http://www.searspartsdirect.com/model/search.html?q=253.562824 for the list of models.

Kenmore uses the 3rd digit after the decimal point to indicate the cubic footage of their refrigerators. With a 2 in that position, this model has a 22 cubic feet capacity (probably 21.6 or 22.1 cubic feet before rounding). Using the size of other models, the external dimensions will be between 30" W x 31-3/4" D x 69" H (the size of a 21 cu. ft. model) and 35-5/8" W x 28-1/4" D x 69-3/8" H (23 cu. ft. model). One current Frigidaire 22 cubic foot side by side model has the external dimensions: 33" W x 32" D x 69-7/8" H. (Note: the 253 in the model number indicates a product made by Frigidaire for the Kenmore line.) Unfortunately, I can't find the dimensions for any of 253.562824 models.

I hope this helps.

What size (cubic feet) is the Frigidaire Freezer Model # FFU17FC4CW0


I am going to guess that it is going to be around 17 cubic feet since that number is in the model number, at least that is how current models are labeled. Here is a link to a copy of the owners manual if you need it.

Here is another link to a page where I looked up the age of your unit and it will give you an idea where to look that up as well.

FRIGIDAIRE CHEST FREEZER WILL NOT FREEZE FOOD OR KEEP FROZEN


Hello Cory Mitchell - If your freezer is not cooling, it could have a floating restriction in the lines or something more complicated like an issue with the seal system that only a professional can repair. This can conclude the compressor not working correctly, the evaporator fan not turning, or even coolant in the lines at incorrect levels to properly cool. If the compressor was running, humming or even a little warm then that was typically normal. Also try checking and see if the door seal is bad; place a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and the door. Now 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 to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing. If it proves to be ineffective, connect with a professional to accurately pinpoint any potentially more serious issues.

Compressor builds up air, but when i go to use tools looses pressure to point that its not usable.


how big is the compressor? if its only say 3 cubic foot a minuet that is at free air pressure not at say 8 bar,,,at 8 bar it would only be 0.375 cubic foot,, check to see how much air in cubic feet per minuet and at what pressure your tools need to work on
if they say 5 cubic feet at 8 bar and the compressor is only 3 cubic feet at 8 bar the tool will only run for a very short time before the compressor air tank has run out of air and the compressor cant keep up with the demand from the tool
the bigger the compressor and the bigger the air tank the better some times,,,for a hammer tool you need 8 cubic foot at 10 bar
thats a big compressor!! or a small one for only a short burst of time,,, in short,,,all ways go for a big un? compressor that is!!
i hope this has helped you out

My frigidaire is not getting cold. Is there a way to troubleshoot to detemine if it's the compressor gone bad?


Good day,
Here is a basic checklist any qualified tech would use to isolate why a refrigerator won't cool.
Items that will cause a refrigerator not to cool.....
1. Defective thermostat
2. Defective freezer fan motor
3. Defective defrost timer or electronic defrost control.
4. Defective defrost thermostat
5. Defective defrost main heater.
6. Defective condenser fan motor
6. Defective compressor overload protector
7. Defective compressor start relay
8. Defective compressor start/run capacitor (some models only)
9. Defective compressor
10. Restriction in refrigeration sealed system
11. Loss of refrigerant (leak)
12. Excessively dirty condenser
13. Broken wires, bad wire harness connectors, ect.
14. Defective fan motor switch (some models only)

As you can see, there are multiple reasons a refrigerator won't cool, or cool properly.
To zero in on the compressor might take you away from the true non-cooling reason.

However. The compressor might have a defective relay or thermal overload that would prevent it from starting or running. Theses items can be removed from the compressor and taken to any appliance parts houses. Most all would be glad to test them for you.
As well, the compressor could have a bad valve internally that would prevent the compressor from pumping refrigerant, or there could be a restriction in the refrigeration lines preventing the refrigerant from circulating properly, or the windings in the compressor could be burned out or shorted, or lastly, the system could have developed a leak. All of the above compressor related issues, except for the first one could only be checked by a qualified tech.
I would treat the problem as a whole with the compressor being one of the potential issues.

Not to throw a monkey wrench into this but a refrigerator is like a car.
9 out of 10 times the problem and solution are obvious. It's that last 10% that take all the training and experience.

Compressor doesn't run


If the fan located next to the compresor works that means that the compresor relay is bad or the compresor burned out.
