Frigidaire Refrigerator Not Cooling

3 posts in this topic

Hey guys I am not good at diagnosing sealed system problems. I know when there is a sealed system problem but have trouble determining if it is a restriction, leak or inefficient compressor. How would a person get some good training on this. I have a Frigidaire refrigerator, not cooling, evaporator has no frost pattern at all. Condenser is room temp., discharge line off of compressor is room temp. suction line is cool to touch, cap tube at its inlet coming off of filter dryer is frosting up. Compressor is running and drawing .56 amps. I appreciate any help anyone can give me. Thank you

checking system pressures may have some clues,

although anything other than a restriction = $$$

Chances are it's a system leak (Frigidaire)


model number / serial number (or age)

Did this happen all at once, or slowly over a few months / years ?

Has it been in storage ?

One of the better guides= Sealed System Diagnosis--Whirlpool Training Publication R-105. Also, Whirlpool Publication R-65, found in Appliance  Repair Manual Stash.
