Customer Question
I have a Fridigaire...

I have a Fridigaire model FFTR1222QW - a smaller 12 cu ft type. Was away on a trip for 1 week. Came home and it is not cooling or freezing. The circuit breaker is fine, and the light inside the frig is working. The fan is not running. Also the temp control (a "set" button to repeatedly press to set the temp) does not light up. The dial inside the freezer has not moved but I set it higher and still nothing. I'm handy and interested in DIY, but I'm not familiar with electrical issues and don't have required testing tools. Any suggestions?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Frigidaire is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

This is less than 2 years old. Again, the model # is FFTR1222QW.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If I can - otherwise, I will be advising the landlord. I only have basic household tools.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Can't think of anything.
