My Repair & Advice
Replaced Wax Motor located on the door lock assembly. Average price around $10.00.
The Frigidaire tech data sheet said if the resistance of the PTC was shorted or opened, then replace the door lock assembly ($50 +). It also said that if the PTC reads around 1500 ohms, then replace the control board ($120+).
I figured out that you are to test the resistance on the Wax Motor. My Wax Motor read 2200 ohms which is higher that the specs. So I decided to test the Wax Motor; I applied 120v to the Wax Motor and it slowly engaged; then disengaged after around 90 secs. It appeared to be working okay. However, after reading the resistance again, the resistance decrease to around 1200 ohms. Since the readings were intermittent, I elected to purchase an new Wax Motor. That fixed the problem. Replacing the door lock assembly would have fixed the problem as well, but would have been more expensive.
