My mini fridge stopped working while I was at work

RF-6850-16 Start Relay
Is the compressor again getting hot once you turn the temperature down? Will the refrigerator cool if you turn the temperature to as cold as it can get? Reason I ask is I am trying to decide if it is the thermostat or a defective staryt relay. Even at the cost of parts I would be careful and sure of what you are going to do here. Haier is not well know for quality products or customer support and there are other brands names out there that will support customers much better than Haier. Not trying to say bad things about your refrigerator I just hate to see when people invest into something and then get left holding something that Haier will not help with and does to all of their customer. Thanks Sea Breeze
I have lost valuable customers because of Haiers lack of customer support.

Haier model HRQ04WNAWW refrigerator. Stopped cooling suddenly. Compressor is hot, really hot, and doesn't make a sound. Light is still on inside of unit, so are getting power.

the compressor has an internal overlod inside of it after 115 degress it opens and wont start till it cools down below 115 unplug and try putting ice cubes on top of com pessor to cool it down otherwise it will take hours to cool off

My Haier HVFO20ABB doesn't get cool anymore. It powers up, light bulb lights etc... But nothing. Any quick checks before I get it serviced. How can I tell if it needs to be recharged or bad...

I have many resource's for the Haier brands. Yes there are simple things to test, beginning by feeling compressor top while or just after running unplug so to see if warm or too hot to keep hand there. You also should fill the compressor running because so run silently.Click Here and I will gather the parts list. Click Here=> Haier HVF020ABB Wine Cooler Parts Breakdown Other problems could involve the thermostat, start relay and or run capacitor if used. Here is the service manual Here=> Haier HVFO20ABB Service Manual

Thermostat could be an issue also so I will be looking that up after I return. Please note any more clickable links I will not be able to do once so my contact info is at the top of this page=> HERE
Most communication can be done here yet if you need to picture something I may have left out just ask, the address is in capsha just for those spam bots, Let me know and please rate this solution, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Light is on and thats it

Check to see if the compressor is hot. be carefull it can get really hot if its malfunctioning. If it is not hot then maybe the breaker switch on it does'nt reset anymore. Try replacing that.

I have a mini fridge at school, a small Haier. My fridge is getting power and the motor gets very hot but the fridge is not cooling, not even a little... any ideas???

Hi ejb9,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: You have a mini fridge at school, a small Haier. Your fridge is getting power and the motor gets very hot but the fridge is not cooling, not even a little... any ideas???

May be low on freon or cloged expantion valve. You're going to need a certified tech to check and repair. Maybe it's time to look at the cost of repair verses replacement.

Feel free contact me again!

Problem with cooling of HAIER HVT12ABS

not to much experience with tecs, but a tec has a hot and cold side so turn the tec around and that should solve your problem and also some good thermal paste should be used on the hot side. good luck and let me know how you got on.
