Frigidaire Refrigerators - Answered Questions & Fixed Issues


There is some truth to it. Refrigerant needs to flow from high pressure to low pressure, and refrigerant pressure is directly proportional to temperature. Once the temperature drops below 40*F, for the outdoor coil, refrigeration efficiency is lost. Some heatpump units need auxiliary heat because.
Cold refrigerant condenses, into a liquid, and a compressor will not compress liquid, why its valves and internals would chatter into pieces. There is such thing as compressor crank case heaters, or belly band heaters. A heater removes, evaporates liquid refrigerant from within a compressor, it is protection.

I would get a compressor heater, wraps around the compressor belly, near 50 watts, and can use a relay to switch off the heater when the compressor runs, or let the heater work continuously.

The LED above the Ice Off icon should be lit when the icemaker is disabled. It should be off when you want ice from the icemaker. To toggle the setting, press and hold the Ice Off touch pad for 3+ seconds. This is shown in the manual for the FPHF2399MF2 on page 14. Sears Parts Direct has the manual here: https://www.searspartsdirect.com/manual/234cu4elin-001428/frigidaire-fphf2399mf2-bottom-mount-refrigerator .

I hope this helps.

You are right! That is the most likely cause of the problem you described.

If new and under warranty contact supplier. If you attempt to fix while under warranty and cause further faults then you may void warranty.

Hi- not sure if it will help but I had issues getting it out. What I found is the plastic casing (fridge) needed a little twist/push. Play with it- hold the filter in and GENTLY push/pull/twist slightly the fridge housing.

It sounds like your ice machine is not getting enough water flow.

I would say that either the filter has split or the seal where it screws into the housing has failed. I would try a new filter and seal.

There are a number of reasons why this might be happening. You bets bet if to call a service guy out and let them take a look at it as some things require specialised equipment to troubleshoot.

The only access to the drain tube is from the inside which would mean removing the inner cabinet or liner - completely impractical and probably a waste of time as a collapsed drain tube is likely to be a sign the insulation is failing.

I expect you will find there will be at least one cold spot on the outer cabinet. A friend had the same trouble. In her case the top at the back was the worst offender and we extended the life by placing a 4" polystyrene block on the top. She mopped out the fridge daily.

I find a curtain wire is the most suitable for poking around in fridge drains.

The refrigerator needs to be perfectly leveled side to side dn should pitch back slightly. Also look at the plane of the doors, that is to say that they should be squared to the cabinet. If they are sagging, you may need to adjust the hinges.

An EF code is indicative of an Evaporator Fan Circuit Failure. Can it be stopped by ice or frost? Absolutely. Press the freezer up button and the freezer down button simultaneously for 6-8 seconds and you will enter a test mode. Every time you press the fresh food button after entering the test you will advance to the next test. They are not in numerical order. Go to test 26 (The defrost circuit test) and it will show CL for closed or OP for open. If it shows OP you have a defrost issue. If CL there is no defrost problem. Next go to test 15 - keeping in mind they ( the tests are Not in numerical order). When you get to 15 press the main power on/off button. The 1st time you press it the display will show LO and the fan should be on low speed. The next time you press the power button it will show HI, and the fan should be on high. It is a twelve vdc fan motor wire colors red, yellow, brown, and blue. They originate at the j6a and j4a connectors. If the fan does not come on in the test the check will be made at the control. There should always be 12vdc between brown and red, and there should be 9 - 12 vdc between brown and yellow in the test. The blue wire is a tach wire and feeds info back to the lower control which is located behind the kick plate underneath the unit. EX factory service 22 years currently an instructor. If you are not equipped with the proper tools and or knowledge please call a competent technician. KEEP IT SIMPLE
