Refrigerators are an essential appliance in the modern home, providing a convenient and reliable way of keeping food fresh for longer. There are occasions when the Frigidaire refrigerator is a risk particularly when used to store food items. Freezing food in the refrigerator can be a typical issue that many of us experience as it can cause a myriad of problems, including food spoilage, freezer burn, and loss of flavor and texture. In this post we will look at the reasons why the refrigerator in your Frigidaire could be freezing food items and what you can do to avoid it happening. We will also provide some guidelines on how you can properly store and organize your Frigidaire refrigerator to ensure that the food you prepare stays tasty and fresh. You’ll be able to save money, avoid food waste and enjoy the food you eat to the fullest whether you’re a professional chef or just a beginner.
01 01 Frigidaire Refrigerator Thermostat for Temperature Control
The thermostat that controls temperature regulates voltage for the fan motors, compressors for condenser and evaporator fan, as appropriate. If the thermostat for temperature control isn’t functioning correctly it can cause the refrigerant system to run longer than is needed. In the end, the Frigidaire refrigerator will become too cold. To find out if the thermostat is malfunctioning, move it from its lowest setting to its most high setting and check for a click. The thermostat is supposed to click, but it doesn’t click. If the thermostat doesn’t click, use a multimeter to test the thermostat’s continuity. If the thermostat for temperature control doesn’t have continuity in any setting, then replace it.
02 02 Frigidaire Refrigerator Thermistor
The thermistor reads the temperature of the air and relays the temperature to the control board. Based on the temperature readings of the temperature sensor, the control board controls the power supply for the compressor fan and evaporator fan. If the thermistor is defective the compressor as well as the evaporator fan may be running too often. As a result, the refrigerator’s temperature will become too cold. Examine the multimeter to determine if the multimeter is malfunctioning. The Frigidaire refrigerator’s temperature is likely to cause the thermistor’s resistance to change. If the resistance of the thermistor does not change or if the thermistor doesn’t have continuity, then replace the thermistor.
03 03 Frigidaire Refrigerator Main Control Board
The control board in the center could be inoperable. But, the control board is rarely the root of the issue. Before replacing the control board make sure to test all components that could be in a state of deficiency. If one of these components isn’t damaged, then you can replace the control board itself.
04 – Frigidaire Refrigerator Temperature Control Board
The temperature control board provides voltage to fans and compressor motors. If the control board is faulty, it may send continuous voltage to the compressor or fan motors. The refrigerator made by Frigidaire is likely to become cold. Control boards are often incorrectly identified. When replacing the control board , make sure that you test the parts that are most likely to fail. Replace the temperature control board if the temperature control boards aren’t damaged.
05 – Frigidaire temperature set too cold
The Frigidaire refrigerator temperature controller can be set to a warmer temperature. There are many models that have temperatures that are set which ranges from 34 to 38 degrees Fahrenheit. Allow 24 hours for the temperature setting to become effective.
06 06 Frigidaire Refrigerator Evaporator Motor for Fan
The Frigidaire refrigerator’s fan motor for evaporation is able to draw air over the cold evaporator coils , which chills the air. To keep food fresh it is circulated through the refrigerator and freezer compartments of the Frigidaire. If the fan motor of the evaporator fan isn’t operating properly, the cold air from the refrigerator or refrigerator evaporator coils may migrate across the air conduits and reach the bottom, causing food to be frozen. Try rotating the evaporator fan blades to see if they rotate freely. If they do not, then it’s likely the motor’s bearings have become stuck and the motor will need to be repaired. It’s also possible to make use of a multimeter for testing the motor for electrical continuity. If the motor has no electrical continuity, the component will not function and a replacement motor must be installed.
07 – Food items that are too close to vents
Leave enough space between vents of air and food. If certain food items are directly close to the cold air vent they may become frozen.
08 08 Frigidaire Refrigerator Damper
To allow the correct amount of cold air into the Frigidaire refrigerator the damper opens and closes. The refrigerator won’t cool down when the damper remains open. The result is that the Frigidaire refrigerator will become too cold. To find out if the damper has been damaged or is open examine it.
09 09 Frigidaire Refrigerator Damper Control Assembly
The air damper control opens and closes to let the proper amount of cold air into the Frigidaire refrigerator compartment. The refrigerator won’t cool down if the damper isn’t closed properly. Verify the damper’s control to determine if it’s broken or has become stuck open.
10 10 Frigidaire Refrigerator Defrost Thermostat
The Frigidaire refrigerator’s thermostat for defrost monitors the temperature of the coils of the evaporator. When the coils fall below an agreed-upon temperature the thermostat’s contacts are closed so that power can flow to the heater during the defrost process. A defrost thermostat that is not working properly may not permit voltage to reach the heater in the defrost, resulting in the cooling coils in the evaporator getting frosted over, causing the loss of air flow and cooling. To find out if the thermostat is in error, utilize a multimeter to test it for continuity in electrical circuits. Replace the thermostat in the event that it does not maintain continuity at the lower temperatures of the operating temperature range.
