REFRIGERATOR QUIT AND WON'T RESTART
« on: April 21, 2018, 11:39:32 AM »

 Hi,  I'm playing with a Frigidaire FFTR1022QM apartment size refrigerator. It will not start and the 5 LED lights on the control panel flash left to right alternately then flash altogether continually. If I by-pass the controls, the compressor will come on. The solid state control board has been swapped out with a known good board but the same results. I could not find much tech info on this unit. Could the LED's be indicating a trouble code? There appear to be at least three input sensors to the control board. I'm thinking one has failed. Any info you folks can give would be appreciated.                     Thanks

I noticed the 2018 post and I have the same problem and question.
Does anyone know what the blinking LED lights on the Fridgidair FFTR1022QM  with main board #5304498695 means.

Everything else on this fridge tests perfect and replacing the main board gave the same blinking lights and no run.

Any ideas.  Oh that's right this thread is 2 years old with no takers.

Moderator what is to be done?

Thanks

Did any other sites give you any information? A lot of these are disposable machines.

SOLVED:  Simple Fix, but confusing symptoms.    The temperature control had 5 LEDS that would just flash constantly even after after a reset.  Every few seconds the freezer fan would attempt to turn but only for a moment. 

The Frigidaire FFTRQM is an apartment sized refrigerator that stopped working after about 4 years.  I checked everything - the compressor, relay, capacitor.  The coils were clean with no signs of leakage so I ordered and installed a new main board, but it didn't solve the problem.  One time after it was unplugged for about an hour I got the refrigerator to run normal, so I checked running amps and things looked good.  On a whim I checked the freezer fan voltage and amps.

It TURNED OUT to be the freezer fan #ZWF-02-4 50240401000Q.  It's a 12vdc fan with a 4w rating.  The Main Board #5304498695 feeds power to the fan at 11.86vdc.  I quickly checked the amperage and it turned out the fan was drawing 9.9 watts so I ordered a new fan on Ebay for $25.41 and installed it last week.
The new fan did the trick and runs at a low 0.9 watts.  The refrigerator has been working perfectly ever since and fortunately I was able to return the main board for a full refund.
