My ref. and freezer have a chemical type smell have cleaned both out with vinager but odor still there and seams stronger could it be the appliance it self causing odor I found no bad food at all Thanks mike
The only thing that would cause a chemical type of odor inside the unit would be a control board that has burnt. This unit has a control board in the refrigerator compartment. Other than that the unit itself will not produce a chemical odor.
Freezer does Not cool properly.
Back side of freezer has froze up.
Answer Hello Sandra. It sounds like you may have a defrost problem with the unit. Check and see if there is any frost build up on the back wall of the freezer. If so, you will need to test the defrost heater and the defrost thermostat. They should read closed for continuity when cold. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. I will include a link at the end to assist you how to use the multi-meter if needed. If both parts are good, you will need to replace the defrost timer. Once the problem is repaired, you will need to thaw out the ice on the coils before the unit will operate properly. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
I have a Frigidaire refrigerator. It was bought brand new 6 years ago. I have had to replace the evaporator fan 4 times already? Any ideas why it keeps going out.
Answer Hello Angela,
You may want to check to make sure that you don't have any loose connections and proper voltage (120vac) for your evaporator fan motor. Loose connections or voltage issues could cause a fan motor 5303918549 to fail. You will also want to install all components of the new fan motor. There should be instructions that come with it. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
do you have the exact wire replacements for this unit - there is no tech sheet anywhere and the instruction sheet with the evap fan mot. do not explain which wires to cut / replace thanks..
Answer Hello Dave B. In the kit 5303918549 there is an instruction sheet. You will need to follow these instructions. If the plug does not fit the plug in your freezer, you will cut and splice the wires with the wires in the freezer and not use the wiring harness with the fan motor. Use the three crimp connectors to put over the spliced wires. Hope this helps.
