Frigidaire Frig will not cool after a recent defrost

4 posts in this topic

I recently was given a frig in great shape for my garage.  After waiting 24 hrs for the compressor oil to drain I plugged it in and it was on it's way to cooling.  Once the frig ran for about a day it started what I think was the defrost mode.  After it ran I could hear a clicking occasionally like something was trying to click off or on and the frig would not cool.  I feel like it's in the defrost timer or defrost heater but do not want to buy parts until; the problem is determined.  Can anyone tell me how I can determine the problem.  I have a multi meter and am mechanically sound but do not know specifics about appliance problems.  CAN SOMEONE HELP!

Sounds like it is the compressor trying to start and clicking off on the overload.  Take a look at the compressor and see if this is so. If the compressor is defective the box is a boat anchor.

is the sound the dreaded  Huuummm  click?  is the compressor hot? is the condensor fan running? you may want to check the condensor fan motor (the fan on the bottom next to the compressor) you may have a mouse caught in the fan blade
