About a month ago I worked on a water drip in the top of my top mount
Frigidaire refer. Seems the defrost water drips/blows down into the refer
Ever since then the refer compartment is too warm. The unit runs fine,
makes ice, freezer unit is plenty cold, but it will only run for maybe 5
minutes at a time, then shuts off, only to start again in a few minutes.
I see the thermostat unit is $61. I can't afford to just throw procey parts
at it. Unit is 2 years old but warranty doesn't cover squat after 1 year.
What did you fix/change/ or otherwise make different? The freezer working
proves the refrigeration system is working. There is usually a little fan
circulating air between compartments. Is it working? Is the air blocked at
any point? Did you move or remove any insulation or partitions?
Refrigerator here with the freezer on top froze well but milk, cola and
butter temps suddenly seemed not cold enough. $3 at the hardware store for
a cool go/no-go marked little refrigerator thermostat proved it was too
warm - and the freezer a tad warm too. Rearranging the row of two liter
soda pop bottles on the top fridge shelf fixed it instantly - two bottles
had rolled sideways and to the rear out of normal sight and those two
bottles impeded the flow of the cold freezer air from circulating down to
the below refer properly.
Think our Florida refer is spelled with two E's
Not plugged in, door left open, light replaced with a heat lamp bulb?
Christopher, you cannot just throw parts at it and fix it. A little time and
effort during the troubleshooting stage may save the poster from spending a
dime. Suggest maybe looking to see if there is any frost buildup in the
freezer, checking to make sure nothing happens to be blocking the airflow
from the freezer to the fridge, taking food out of freezer because it is
over full and blocking the air flow... The list goes on. That is why we
refer guys get paid for our knowledge not our parts changing skills.
Bad evap fan.
bad defrost timer.
