Frigidaire Refrigerators - Popular Questions, Answers, Tips & Manuals

The SH (not 5 H) error indicates that the freezer sensor is shorted in the display. The control can't determine what the freezer temperature currently is. You need to check the wiring between the thermistor (temperature sensor/resistor) and the control board. Replace the thermistor if the wiring has no damage. If the wiring is faulty, replace that. If the fault returns, you may have a problem with the control board.

Please add a comment with the model number of the side-by-side refrigerator if you need a parts diagram. I hope this helps.

Check the water filter, replace as needed. Remove ice bin, empty it and let it thaw out. Put it back in place and check for ice the next morning.

When you replaced the thermistor, did you check the resistance of the wiring and temperature sensor back at the control board? If the wires are damaged or the connector at the control board has corrosion, the control board won't get the correct signal information. If those are fine, then the control board is probably faulty. Sears Parts Direct has the control board here: . Other repair shops will have this part as well.

I wish that only the refrigerator temperature sensor was faulty. I hope this helps.

Be aware the fridge works with deadly voltages. If you have not enough technical knowledge, please don't do this yourself.
With a multi meter you can measure if the voltage you apply is entering the fridge. There is not much in a fridge. You find a on / of switch, a thermostat en mostly an override switch too short a thermostat. So if you measure a voltage coming is, follow the wiring and check what the thermostat does. if it won't switch you have the cause. If it does switch, follow the wiring, and if the aggregate gets a voltage and does not run, you have a defective aggregate. I can't think of more.
Good Luck.

you may need a check Freon level to see if its low , usually if u have low Freon level you can touch the condenser fan rails and they should be cold because when it has Freon and it liquefies into gas it creates heat hence the coils will then get warm and hot, if they are hot or warm it may not be a low Freon level issue? I would also check the freezer thermistors , see pics there may be more than 1 thermistor in freezer section , u can also check the compressor ur self to verify as not all appliance techs are reputable or knowlagable
