Frigidaire has been an esteemed brand of refrigerators since the beginning of the 20th century. While their refrigerators are well-known because they are reliable and safe, there are still some problems you might have with your Frigidaire refrigerator.
Refrigerators in general are frequently troubled with various problems, whether they are too cold or too warm, or even in some cases completely unresponsive and will not turn on. We will mention some possible Frigidaire refrigerator problems, and what you can do about it and save money on expensive service repairs.
For example, Frigidaire refrigerator model FRT21IL4W3 has some issues with the temperatures in the freezer and the refrigerator. There are times when the freezer doesn’t freeze and the refrigerator is working, but there are times when the refrigerator doesn’t get cold and the freezer works just fine. Now, the evaporator is in the freezer section, and so is the fan that transports the air from the freezer to the refrigerator.
You could have a problem with your fan. It could be stuck or broken. If it is broken it should be replaced, and if it is stuck, just clean it and it will solve your problem.
You should also clean the condenser soils and the fans behind and under the refrigerator. Make sure you unplug the refrigerator before you do any of the diagnostics or the work.
Frigidaire refrigerator models LFHT1817LR4 sometimes have a tendency to stop working. The light in the refrigerator is working, but the motor isn’t running.
First of all, ensure that the temperature in the room isn’t too cold. If it is, the refrigerator goes should go through a defrost cycle, but it can’t because it is too cold.
If the room temperature is alright, the problem probably lies in the defrost timer or the temperature thermostat. You should rotate the defrost timer with a screwdriver. If it flashes, it should be replaced.
Next, turn the temperature up or down. If it flashes, it should be replaced. If none of these things work, unplug the refrigerator and check the thermostat contacts.
If they show 0 ohms, replace the timer. If they don’t, replace the thermostat. There are more potential problems, but these are the most probable.
Other frequent problems of other models are excessive noise or vibration, and the bulb or the ice-maker aren’t working. If you have a problem with noise, just place it on a level surface and move away from walls. If the light doesn’t turn on, replace the bulb, or push the light switch on the control box.
When your ice-maker isn’t working, try pushing down the wire signal arm. Make sure it is in the “Up” position. Then see if your water supply is turned on, increase it and turn down the temperature in the freezer. You should wait for at least a day to see if it is going to start making ice.
All in all, Frigidaire refrigerators are high quality merchandise, but like all of our home appliances, they can have some typical problems which need to be repaired. They are still a great option if you’re looking for a reliable refrigerator for your kitchen.
