This is normal for a fully automatic defrost refrigerator.
The defrost cycle occurs periodically, lasting about 30
minutes.
Ensure plug is tightly pushed into outlet.
Check/replace fuse with a 15 amp time-delay fuse.
Reset circuit breaker.
Check house lights. Call local Electric Company.
It's normal for the refrigerator to work longer under
these conditions.
It takes 8-12 hours for the refrigerator to cool down
completely.
Ice maker operation causes refrigerator to run slightly
more.
Warm air entering the refrigerator causes it to run
more. Open doors less often.
Ensure refrigerator is level. Keep food and containers
from blocking door. See PROBLEM section
OPENING/CLOSING OF DOORS/DRAWERS.
Set refrigerator control to warmer setting until
refrigerator temperature is satisfactory. Allow 24 hours
for temperature to stabilize.
Clean or change gasket. Leaks in door seal will cause
refrigerator to run longer in order to maintain desired
temperatures.
This is normal. Refrigerator goes on and off to keep
temperature constant.
Call your Frigidaire service representative, who can
interpret any messages or number codes flashing on
the digital displays.
Set freezer control to a warmer setting. Allow 24 hours
for temperature to stabilize.
Set refrigerator control to a warmer setting. Allow 24
hours for temperature to stabilize.
See solution above.
Adjust Meat Keeper Temperature Control to a lower
setting. (Meat should be stored at a temperature just
below the freezing point for maximum fresh storage
time. It is normal for ice crystals to form due to the
moisture content of meat.)
