Hi ,

I have Frigidaire Professional series (FPRH17D7KF1) made on Dec 2009, single door fridge (this does not have a freezer, fridge only). 

The issue is that the fridge does not turn on by itself anymore.  It will turn on if I adjust the thermostat dial back and forth.  The fridge will then run for about 5-8 minutes, the fridge does blow cool air inside during this time but after it shutdowns after the completion of it's cycle, it does not turn back on again until I adjust the thermostat dial back and forth again.

I cleaned the coils and the fan.

Is this a thermostat issue, relay or something else?

This is most likely what you need. Sounds like classic cold control failure.  Sorry, this isn't working right. The part number is 216715503

  Not from your description.

based on a couple of threads I read, I though it may have something to do with the defrost timer, perhaps it was stuck in the defrost mode and therefore the reason why it wasn't turning on. But I assume if this was the case, I wouldn't be able to turn it on by simply adjusting the temperature control dial.

thanks again, I will order the part and install it, hope it corrects my problem.

Thank you kindly, it was the temperature control, I ordered a new one, installed it, and have been problem free for a couple of months now :)
