I realized for the past couple of days that the refrigerator side of my unit was not as cold as usual. Today, it finally got to a point where it was just slightly below room temperature. I found the owners manual (http://manuals.frigidaire.com/prodin...18955101en.pdf
) and performed the following troubleshooting actions:
-Cleaned front 'toe grille'
-Cleaned condenser coils
-Wiped down condenser fan
-Basically, cleaned everything I could get to behind, under, and in front of the unit.
When I first pulled the fridge out, the condenser fan was not on and I noticed that the compressor was extremely hot to the touch. After I cleaned and plugged the unit back in, the condenser fan turned on. I have also pointed a small fan at the compressor to try and cool the compressor and under the unit.
Is there anything else I should be checking? The evaporator fan seems to be on and the vents are not blocked. The problem I have still seems to persist...and since I have typed this, the condenser fan has turned off again.
I am a new homeowner and have never had to deal with this before, so any help is appreciated!
