Question Frigidaire stainless side by side NOT WORKING
Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


So I picked up a free Frigidaire stainless side by side and A comparable fridge to the one I have would cost about $1200. Its funny because when I got the fridge the guy said he payed someone to come look at and the tech person told him that the compressor was out and that it would cost $600 to fix, So the guy decided to give the fridge away. So I decided I would try to fix it, So I ordered a compressor kit off ******** for the fridge which cost $80. The kit came with some electrical pieces that go on the back of the compressor, so I put these on the old compressor and after that I plugged the fridge in and the compressor turned on, before when I fist got it, it would not turn on. So I let it sit over night but it did not get cold at all! So I called around and someone said even if the compressor is running it still could be bad, But Im wondering if there is a leak in the system? But if I do fix the refrigeration I would the the tech person would have a way of checking the pressure of the system to make sure there is no leaks? So what do you think?
Thanks

He would come in with a meter to check for leaks and also he would add freon to the system with a compound manifold and check to make sure that the suction line is building up a frost pattern. if there is a leak however he would have to suck it down to a vacume with his gauges first than he would have to solder up some new tubing and vacume once more to take out any air that might have snuck back in than re add his freon once more.

Connected beteween the cap tube and the discharge line on the high side by the condenser fan area. Sucks up moisture with tiny like rock beads inside of it.

The pressure on the high side is between 140 and 160 psi and when it makes its way through the discharge line and the cap tube and heat exchanger it will drop in pressure on low side through the suction line to 0-10 psi and the heat exchanger will take the heat from the captube and use it to dissipate any liquid you may still have in your line so that only vapor go's in the compressor no liquid

If the compressor is vibrating and getting warm, but not cooling, the system is very low on refrigerant.
Generally, you cannot just change compressor parts without verifying they will not damage the compressor!
If the compressor now is not vibrating, you probably blew out the start winding.
Seem like your original problem was a refrigerant leak which usually damages the compressor.

Explain how you test your compressor to see if its bad or not? Also what parts are you talking about that he may need for the compressor?

Impossible to test without the compressor running.

Ignore Letsride, he is confusing the issue, check to see if the compressor is vibrating and warm,post results
