It is possible u got some surge voltage or low voltage and that could fry your compressor.. your fans could be running but no comp. you might check the start relay on the comp. ok.

Not cooling or freezing

Hi Mick, this is AP.



I understand you are experiencing a no cool situation in your Frigidaire refrigerator. On your model, FRS26R4A, specifically the first thing to check it to make sure the refrigerator and freezer controls are not set to "0", turning the Freezer and Fresh Food Controls to "0" turns off the compressor and prevents your refrigerator from cooling, but does not disconnect the power to the light bulb and other electrical components. If you hear the noise coming from the freezer compartment it could be something blocking the evaporator fan which would cause warm temps in the fresh food and freezer section. If the noise is coming from behind the appliance it could be something in the condenser fan or the compressor may be locked up. I would definitely recommend contacting an authorized technician to repair your appliance if you find the temperature controls are not the cause of your high temperatures in the refrigerator. I hope this information helps.



Thanks,

2005 civic ex special edition has cool air blowing out of vents in very cold weather....starts out warm but soon changes to cool and stays cool

Could be a couple things...

1. Bad Thermostat.
2. Bad Heater core.

The thermo is a easy fix if you're mechanically inclined. I would look at this first.

Had mouse get caught in fan,removed it fan still works.fridge not getting cold.any resets I can try.sounds like compressed. Comes on 2 seconds n turns off

Your compressor is faulty. When the cooling fan motor goes faulty and not caught in time, the compressor overheats and siezes.(What you are experiencing now).

Iphone 3gs seems working but screen is black and i have tried many times to reset by holding sleep and home button nothing happens,

This is not a reset issue. There must have been something that had hit your phone that made the screen go bad. I experienced similar thing until I replaced the screen before it started working alright. Good luck and rate this.

Make sure the condenser under or behind has good air flow. There is supposed to be at least 1 inch clearance around the refrigerator. Be careful putting bags and things against it. You may have to take the grill off the bottom and look with a flashlight. If the coils are full of lint, you can buy a good coil cleaning brush at home depot. Take a vacuum and sweep it up.

Fridge / Freezer no longer cooling

 Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items. If it still has a problem then it might be the compressor and you should probably replace the machine.
