Question and Answers

Q:

Frigidare Refrigerator Freezer side by side is not cooling in the refrigerator or freezer.

A:

I know how disappointing it is when your refrigerator and freezer malfunction. I was able to find a couple links that include great information for a Frigidaire refrigerator/freezer not cooling. I attached the links below. I hope this helps.

From the description you give the compressor is trying to start but clicks off on the overload. This happens when the compressor is trying to draw to many amps to start. The problem may be a overload/start relay or it may be the compressor is bad. This problem will require a technician to check. Only a technician will have a "starter box" which can be hooked up directly to the compressor to check if the compressor is the problem or the start relay/overload is the problem. You can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Fred, do you think that the problem could be the starter which is attached to the compressor or the capacitor which attaches directly to the starter? If you could respond I would really appreciate it.

A:

Yes the problem might be the start relay or the capacitor. There are start relay kits that you might find at a local appliance part store. Once used you will not be able to return them. If you know somene in the business they might have a start box you can borrow.

Fred, I do not have a start box, but I did check for resistence on the compressor pins that the start relay attaches to. From what I read on internet the ohm reading were within the allowable ranges. The compressor comes on and then goes off. I am hearing a clicking noise from the start relay I think. I took the start relay off and it was warm to the touch in the short period of time that I had the unit on. I have ordered a start relay alonh with a capacitor. I am hoping this will solve my problem. Thanks for your time and assistance and let me know what you think when you get a chance.

Fred, I also checked the starter relay at the 3 pin holes. The reading at pin holes 1 and 2 was 10.6 ohms. 1 to 3 0 ohm and 2 to 3, 0 ohms. These readings appear to be normal for the start capacitor. I alos checked for resistence on the capacitor and got 0 ohms. If you can let me know what you think about what I have done so far.

One thing to try is to obtain a "Start Kit" from a local appliance parts store. The kits wouldn't be expensive and you could most likely install it yourself. If things work then the compressor is okay and you fixed the problem. If it still doesn't start then most likely the compressor if bad. The compressor should have a tag with the horsepower of the compressor. Take your model number to the store to get the correct kit.

A:

My fingers are closed also. The $80 dollars is a little high but still better than a service call and at least this way there's a chance the unit will get fixed. Good Luck.
