Question DetailsAsked on 8/6/2012

Repair or replace my frigidaire refrigerator? It's 7 years old and the freezer just stopped working. The fridge side is working fine.

My frigidaire is only 7 years old but the freezer side just stopped working yesterday. The unit has been making a humming/buzzing noise a lot lately just randomly. The freezer side is cool but far from cold & everything in it defrosted. I paid $800 for the unit back in 2005.

It's worth having a qualified appliance tech take a look to find out the cost to repair it. Since the refrigerator side works, it's not likely the compressor or the coil. Could just be the fan switch on the door.

The normal life of a refrigerator is in excess of 20 years. I'd say that this unit is definitely worth fixing, since the compressor seems to be okay (otherwise the fresh food side wouldn't work either).

Usually, it's the other way around (fresh food warm, freezer cold) when the fan goes out, but maybe Frigidaire is controlled differently than most other refrigerators.

Thanks all for the feedback. Unfortunately the fridge side stopped working too. Every 5-10 minutes the unit is making a humming noise. I'm having someone come out to take a look but I'm thinking it's no so minor now.
