    Default 1950's Frigidaire AV44 Bar fridge problem

    Hello,
    I just found this site looking for help.
    I have a cool Frigidaire bar fridge, half size with out a separate freezer section. It is pretty mint
    I have owned it for years. It worked fine, but the door gasket disintegrated and I stopped using it for about a decade.
    I now replaced the gasket. The unit runs and cools, but stops and starts tremendously often, like every five minutes it will start, run about two minutes, stop, and repeat.
    There is no obvious mechanical distress, wiring damage, etc.
    Any suggestions on diagnosis? I did an ohmmeter check on the compressor, the readings are 8.5/ 5.1/ 1.5, thought the digital meter was a little jumpy.
    Thank you, Mark

    That sounds about right. Once it's filled it will go longer between cooling cycles. You need to check the temperature inside the box when it stops and when it starts. It sound like the cold control is maintaining the temperature.
