This frigidaire fridge is continually running and not getting cold. Can you give me an idea as to where to start looking?
Thanks for your time
If the unit is not getting cold at all then the first thing you will want to check for is to make sure that the compressor is running. If the compressor is not running then you will want to unplug the unit and pull the start relay and shake it and see if it rattles. If it does rattle then replace the start relay. If the compressor is running then you will want to pull the rear cover of the freezer wall and check for the evaporator fan running and check to see if there is heavy frost build up on the evaporator coils. If the fan motor 5303918549 is not running then check for 120 vac coming to the fan motor. If there is 120 vac then replace the fan motor. If there is not 120 vac then you will need to replace the defrost control. If the fan runs and there is heavy frost buildup then you will want to check the defrost thermostat 5303918214 and heater 242044113 for continuity. If there is not continuity of one of the parts then replace that part. If they both check good for continuity then replace the defrost control 242011001. If the coils have no frost pattern at all and the compressor is running then then the unit most likely be caused by a sealed system issue.
