20 Most Recent Frigidaire Freezer GLRT183TD Questions & Answers


Hi Ebony! Are you having issues with the unit turning on at all and staying on? Or do you not hear the unit turning on and running? If you hear no noise, to show the unit is running (compressor turning on), you would need to contact a professional at your earliest convenience. The compressor and sealed system are not turning on. If you hear the compressor running, but the unit is not cooling you have a coolant/sealed system concern. Please contact Frigidaire and a professional to repair the unit.

Do you see frost built up on back wall of freezer if so it is not defrosting and this is what needs to be checked, remove back wall of freezer and check these;
Defrost heater-- it usually is at bottom of the evap. coil, to check it remove wires to it ,use a meter set to the lowest ohms setting and check for somewhere between 10-50 ohms if that is what yours is its good if meter reads OL replace defrost heater

Defrost thermostat-- if clips to the top of the evap. coil and is metallic,round , about the diameter of a quarter with a plastic side with 2 wires coming from it(do not confuse it w.thermister),remove wires and check for ZERO ohms WHEN TESTING IT MUST BE COLD so check it when frost is built up,IF meter reading is OL (WHEN COLD) its the problem

Defrost timer or defrost control if has digital display to show tempature
check timer(it could be anywhere except in freezer) by turning till you hear a click,the defrost heater should come on within 5 minutes if the heater does come on the timer is the problem and needs to be replaced,if the heater does not come on the above mentions parts (heater/t-stat) will be the problem.
defrost control is hard for unskilled lay persons to check SO IF heater and defrost t-stat are good replace control

Hope this helps,

Gene

What you have is a defrost problem. Most likely the defrost heater has failed. Read more about it HERE

The drain is probably clogged. Use a pipe cleaner to clear and then use a turkey baster and force hot water through. Follow with a weak bleach solution. Drain is usually in the middle of the bottom. maybe towards the back. It is supposed to drain into a pan underneath the unit and then evaporate. Another solution could be a leaky door gasket. This overwhelms the defrost system and causes leaks.

Check if the capillary tubes is really bend and can restrict the flow of refrigerant. Restriction in the system can cause the trip off of the compressor overload. Please call qualified technician to correct the problem.

Disconnect the power again for 5 minutes and then put a dinner knife across the two mains plug pins. Then plug it back in. If it doesn't work after that you need an engineer. The main board or other components may have been damaged by a power spike when the power cut.

Hey friend, thanks for your inquiry!

Within your Frigidaire freezer the error code "FF" stands for freezer failure. I would perform a reset on your appliance which can be done by either unplugging the power cord or flipping the household circuit breaker. Once the freezer has come back on you should be able to push the "Down" button three times to start it back up.

If that does not correct the issue Please respond back I would like to assist you with any additional information. Hope this helps to some degree. -Matt

The temperature control is located inside the freezer on upright models, and onthe left outside wall on chest models. The temperature is factory preset to providesatisfactory food storage temperatures.

However, the temperature control is adjustable to provide a range of temperatures for your personal satisfaction. If acolder temperature is desired, turn the temperature control knob toward COLD-EST and allow several hours for temperatures to stabilize between adjustments

Freezers expel warm air. There should be no 'blowing' inside. If it is expelling warm air, then it is working fine, eventually the expelled air should get cooler and cooler.
