How Do You Troubleshoot a Frigidaire Refrigerator?

To troubleshoot a Frigidaire refrigerator, you must first identify the specific problem associated with it. Common problems with Frigidaire refrigerators include failure to cool, fluctuating temperatures and abnormally loud noises. Other common problems include defrost drain problems, refrigerator freezing food and light not working.

When frost builds up on the Frigidaire refrigerator evaporator coils, the fridge may not get cold enough. Removing all the food from the fridge and freezer helps to defrost, and allows free air circulation, which might help to solve this problem. If the temperature control has been set too high, the fridge may become too cold, resulting in frozen food. To rectify this problem, adjust the temperature control to a warmer setting. A defective evaporator fan motor makes the refrigerator loud and noisy. Replacing the evaporator fan motor helps solve this problem.

A defrost drain problem is caused by clogged or freezing drain system and cleaning the drain regularly can help rectify the issue. If the refrigerator is freezing food, the temperature control thermostat might be faulty. Rotating the temperature control thermostat all way round until a click is heard may help to solve this. If this does not help, replacing the thermostat may be helpful. The refrigerator light fails to turn on when the door switch is worn out or when the light bulb is damaged. Replacing the light bulb or door switch may help to resolve this problem.
