Frigidaire Refrigerator Troubleshooting

Frigidaire refrigerators help consumers save time and money on repairs by providing diagnostic error codes to help identify and resolve problems quickly. When you see an error code on your refrigerator, it should not be ignored, even if your refrigerator is operating normally.

While it is possible for a user to repair refrigerator issues, the error codes only identify the set of parts which may be causing the error. Specialized tools are required to fully diagnose and resolve any issue.

Please Note:

If there is an issue with the main control board or user interface board, it may be necessary to replace both parts. Frigidaire updated these parts and sometimes a new control board can’t communicate with an old interface board or vice versa. Replacing both boards will help prevent future communication errors.

There is an issue with the evaporator fan circuit.The evaporator fan pulls air warm from the refrigerator and blows it over the evaporator coils. The liquid refrigerant in the evaporator coils absorbs heat and cool air blows back into the refrigerator compartment. If the evaporator fan is not working, the refrigerator will not stay cold.

For this error, check the wiring, evaporator fan, and control board.

Communication with Main Control Board failed.This error occurs when the user interface board (display) can’t communicate with the main control board (the refrigerator’s computer.) Potential causes include:

  • Faulty, loose, or damaged wiring.
  • A faulty display panel.
  • A faulty control board.

To diagnose this error, it is necessary to inspect the wiring and test the related parts individually. The cost of a replacement control board for a Frigidaire refrigerator is approximately $150-$250. Due to the high cost to replace damaged parts, we recommend contacting a qualified Fridigaire refrigerator repair service to diagnose and resolve this error.

dFThere is an issue with the defrost circuit.The defrost control board activates the defrost cycle in your refrigerator. Your refrigerator may have a manual defrost timer or an adaptive defrost control based on its age and model. Regardless, if the board is faulty, the refrigerator can’t run a defrost cycle.

It is necessary for your refrigerator to defrost periodically to prevent critical components from icing over. This error should be given priority to prevent further damage to your refrigerator.

Check the following parts for functionality:

  • The main control board
  • Wiring harness and wiring
  • Defrost control board
