What's up with my compressor?
Here are the symptoms in my side by side Frigidaire: fridge and freezer cool, but not cold enough - freezer is above freezing. I can hear the fan running in the freezer and cold-ish air comes out. Underneath everything is clean and the fan is running. The compressor tank is room temperature. Every minute or two I hear the compressor turn on and run for several seconds and then turn off again. It sounds somewhat noisy, probably too noisy, but I don’t know how loud it should be since I have never heard it pulled out of the cabinet with the back off before. Also, if it is the compressor, can I replace it does a professional need to because refrigerant will need to be recovered/added? Thanks for any input.
Is this a good question?
