Question about Frigidaire Refrigerators
Many of the frigidaire units had problems with the defrost termination thermostat located in the freezer compartment. (I have repaired many). It is around 12 dollars
It is clipped to a tube located in behind the freezer back panel. take out the
plastic vent and motor, unplug the motor (very carefully to prevent pulling out the
leads) the defrost termination thermostat has two leads and is clipped onto a
tube. The replacement will have heat shrink and wire nuts, but I often use
**** splices under heat shrink tubing to ensure no moisture gets into the connections and a dab of silicone at the ends of the heat shrink. Make sure the "colder" knob
is set in the middle on the vent stack as this will cause problems if set to "colder".
I have only seen one defective defrost timer (incorrectly assembled) which caused the
gear to stick in one position. You can manually rotate the timer to check operation with
a screwdriver in the access hole on the bottom of the temp control panel. (oddly the new timers are of a different make if it has failed). Unplug unit before servicing.
