Default frigidaire not cooling properly
Model Number: ffht2117lw0   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 1 - 5 years

I have a Frigidaire refrigerator model number ffht2117lw0, that is not cooling properly. The freezer compartment is cool, but not cold- about 32 degrees. I checked the evaporator and it would measure 20 degrees. bottled water isn't freezing. The freezer fan works. The cold control might be intermittent. I checked it and it worked at that point. the compressor was working well. It checked out as far a continuity, and it was running, warm and I could hear it. It also had 120V going in, so that would not seem to be a problem...but I could not get a satisfactory amp reading while it was running. What is up with that?

Anyway, the fans run, the condensor is clean, there is no frost, it seems like everything is normal. The system is sealed, and there is no wear on it, so I doubt that I have any type of refrigerant problem.

Other than a sticking cold control, I can't think what might be wrong. The cold control runs about $90, so I thought I'd double check before going ahead.

Any Ideas?

Paul

Hi Paul,

How is the evaporator covered with snow?

How long are the intervals between running and non running compressor?

Here are the breakdown diagrams and Replacement parts for Frigidaire FFHT2117LW0 REFRIGERATOR | AppliancePartsPros.com
