HI error means unit has detected temps are too high in either fridge or freezer. Since you’ve already unplugged it and code came back, you’ll have to determine what’s causing the temperature problems

SOURCE: Frigidaire Dishw. Error code CL

this just happened to ours and it turned out to be the gasket that seals the door.

when you see the CL error and the door is indeed shut, pull gently back on the door. if you hear a click and the unit starts running again, it may be the gasket.

ours lost it's ability to keep the seal, allowing enough 'play' in the locking mechanism for it to think the door was not closed.

SOURCE: My Frigidaire side/side has had two compressor failures in 3 yrs

Good question. TO give you an idea Id have to know what kind of failures they were.
1 Grounded, shorted, or open windings indicate an electrical problem. This could be caused by external components or power fluctuations. Or a manufacturer defect in the motor.
2 Stuck or not pumping indicate mechanical problems with what could be the compressor its self (again a manufacturer defect) or non defrosting trouble or contaminated refrigerant oil residue from the first compressor.

To me replacing the drier on any compressor and on most all refrigerant related problems is a requirement. This helps eliminate the contamination in most cases. If you purchased a compressor the drier should also be replaced on domestic refrigerators its usually a copper colored piece 4" to 8" long about 1" dia and same size tubes on both ends close to the 1" area. If your not getting this part replaced each time I feel like your not getting quality work done with comon refrigeration practices. And could lead to such a problem.

Back about 15 years ago one of the big appliance manufacturers were making their sealed compressor parts from composite materials that would not hold up in all environments of use. Compressor failures were rampant. I cant say this is the reason but I can say it cant be either.

What does H1 code indicate?

Hello E, I appreciate your post!
I see that your Frigidaire air conditioner is displaying an error code of "H1". I have reviewed the air conditioner and the "H1" error code could be an "HI". The "HI" error code means that the room temperature is above the display range. I would recommend performing a reset on your air conditioner. In order to reset the air conditioner you need to unplug the power cord you can press the reset button and then the test button that should restart your air conditioner. If that does correct your issue I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. I hope this information is helpful for you. -Matt

Side by side fridgidare wont stop beeping and showing H1, freezer door was cracked all night and our ac was out, tried to unplug and reset still nothing???

Hey Nikkie, I appreciate your post!
I see that your Frigidaire refrigerator is beeping and displaying the error code of "H1". An "H1" error code means that this is a high temperature within the refrigerator. Since the door was left open all night the refrigerator is registering there is a high temperature. I would suggest keeping the door closed and allowing the refrigerator to get back to the correct temperature. This may take anywhere from 24 to 36 hours for the temperature to stabilize. Hopefully this information is helpful to you. -Matt

My Frigidaire FFSH2311LB is flashing H1 Why? It is only 3 months old.

Hello friend, thank you for your post!

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator is flashing an error code of H1. This code can stand for a high temperature within your refrigerator. I would recommend performing a reset and you can do that by disconnecting power from it for at least ten minutes. If that does not correct your issue you may need to reach out to your manufacturer for any warranty coverage. Hopefully this information is helpful. -Matt

H 1 flashing Frigidaire side by side

I appreciate your post, Sharon!

From the information you have provided your Frigidaire side by side refrigerator is displaying an "H1" error code. I was unable to locate that error code but I did find the error code "HI" which stands for high temperature inside of your freezer compartment. Check your freezer is it still cooling? If so it may just be a miscommunication within your refrigerator and you can clear that by disconnecting the power cord for roughly ten minutes. If you continue to experience an issue I would recommend having a professional technician out to perform a proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Best of luck! -Matt

Plhs267za not cooling

Hi Stephen,

So it's my understanding that your side by side refrigerator, model# PLHS267ZA, is not cooling. My recommendation would be to unplug the appliance and leave it unplugged for 3-5 minutes. What you're doing here is giving it a hard reset. When you plug it back in, after the 3-5 minutes, if the display is still not lighting up or it is still not cooling, I would suggest contacting a local authorized technician for assistance.

-Best Regards-

Fridgeaire error code H1

Hello - Could it possibly be HI? Typically error code HI indicates that the unit has detected high temperature in freezer. Try setting the unit to a lower setting. Generally the factory setting is 0 for the freezer temperature and 37 for the fresh food temperature.
