    My refridgerator runs all the time and doesn't get cold enough

  • Anonymous Sep 29, 2008

    We have had our new fridge for 5 days and it has shut off maybe a total of one-half hour in 5 days. The man who sold it to us says it just has to settle in. What do I do to correct the problem? This can not be energy efficient as the product is billed to be. Unhappy Camper

Frigidaire refrigerator wont cool or freeze

Hi Teddy,

It's my understanding that your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# MRS20WRGW2, has power with the lights coming on, it's just not cooling in the freezer or refrigerator portion. Since you are receiving power to the appliance, I would check to see if you can hear the compressor running. If the compressor is not running that might be why your refrigerator is not cooling. Still, I would contact a local authorized technician, for a full diagnosis. This way it can be determined what exactly is the cause of the NO COOL issue.

-Best Regards-

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.

Hi there

Maybe nothing

1. The fan in the freezer compartment runs full time, this could be the motor noise you hear

If the temperatures are OK then it can not be the compressor that is running all the time or the freezer would go really low in temperature.

You need to pull out the unit and confirm that it is the compressor that is in fact running all the time, they normally run around 12 to 16 hours each day

2. The other unlikely possibility is if the compressor is running full time then there may be a fault with the compressor, busted suction valve or the system could be low on gas.

Refirgerator was connected to regular wall outlet and stopped working, was using 14 guage 15 foot extension cord--is this risky?

Yes it is risky and you can fry the compressor because of the voltage drops in the house wiring and extension cord. If it clicked a lot that is most likely what happened.

GE Model # GSS20IEPA WW Fridge warm...freezer is fine


if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

any further question let me know.

A removable panel in the rear gives access to the compressor and condenser. Remove the panel and clean out the condenser. Make sure the condenser fan operates when the compressor runs. Restore the panel to its original position for normal operation.

Freezer and Refrigirator not cooling

You didn't say if the compressor is running or not. If it is and all other things you stated are running then it has a sealed system problem. The sealed system comes with a 5 yr warranty in most cases (check owners manual). If the compressor is not running then listen for a click at the compressor. If you hear the click then I would replace the relay on the compressor. If you need further help I will need the complete model # off the sticker inside the fridge section.
