Fridge is not running at all

Lights are on both top and bottom, but the fridge it's just not running! Why is that? Is there a switch somewhere?

If you dont here the fan there is two answers. Either your temp switch or the cheap frigidaire compressor that is in your wonderful fridge is dead. No offence but it is true frigidaire is bottom end for compressors and I hope I am wrong and they put a whirlpool or ge in there and a temp switch is at fault.

Lights on one side fridge not cooling.


mine fridge Viking VCBB363L Bottom Freezer Refrigerator.
Took a cell phone camera in video mode and put it in the fridge to see if the light was going out when the door was closed.
Turns out. it wasn't.
This causes the lghts on the left to go out. However, the light on the right stays on and warms up the fridge.
Solution.
Top section air grill. 5 1/4 hex screws.. remove the grill you'll notice door's light switch on right side. a steel spring attached to the switch. When fridge's hinge arm closes the arm pushes on this guy and pushing in the switch button and shuts off the lights.
you can move this with your finger.
In my case switch has a little purple button.
take two pair of 3 in needle nose pliers and CAREFULLY hold center of spring and bend the end nearest you to the left.
You don't have to go crazy Just a bit.
then get you camera ready and check out your work.
Results after you've succeded, replace your parts, and notice after 10 minutes the lights all come on, the alrms stop and the fridge cools normally.
and you saved 200.00

Check the push switch with your finger,this is located along the bottom edge between the two doors,there will be a second switch for the fridge ..
When the switch is pressed the lamp should not flicker
and should not feel scratchy
a replacement will remedy your problem if the above tests fail

How to take doors off Bosch Exxcel KGH39A07GB


I've just had to do this - a real pain, and you would think that Bosch would include it in the instructions or somewhere on their website!

You have to put the fridge/freezer on its back (putting a cushion or something like that at the top to make sure the back doesn't get damanged). Starting at the bottom, unscrew the three bolts holding the bottom door in place, then the middle hinge between the fridge and freezer, and then the screws at the top holding the fridge door in place. Then reverse everything round (you may have to make holes where there are dimples on the top of the freezer door/bottom of the fridge door). Good luck!

My fridge keeps filling up with water, I pulled the bottom of the fridge out and vacumed, the tray underneath is dry and I guess the fridge isn't draining properly. How do I fix this?


Yes you are correct it is not drainind properly.
Remove the back panel in your freezer and at the bottom of the evaporator coil you will see a hole about ½” in diameter this is the drain tube. You might need to use some warm water to melt the ice and then run a wire being very careful not to puncture the hose and run it down the tube to free up the drain. This tube travel down to the bottom of your refrigerator to a pan sometimes located on top of the compressor or somewhere else down there. It collects the water there to evaporate. You can enter your model # at www.appliancehelponline.com for a diagram or illustration of your refrigerator. Not all models are available.

Both Lights flashing and fridge not getting cold


I turned the fridge and freezer off using the circular dials, I then turned the unit off at the mains. Left it for a few minutes and then turned the power back on. I then turned the circular dials to "max" and then depressed the super cool and super freeze buttons to turn this facility on. This time they came on normally (not flashing) and no alarm sounded. The fridge and freezer then started to get cold. Once the unit had been running for several hours I then turned the dials to the 3/4 mark and depressed the super cool and super freeze buttons again to turn them off. Over night the fridge and the freezer appear to be working properly so I hope that my problem is solved. Maybe the unit just needed to "settle" before being switched on?

Hotpoint FFA71 fridge and freezer suddenly stopped working


Sounds as though the compressor has stopped working. It feeds both compartments with control from a printed circuit above the top door.Where all your red lights are ablaze! (This can be replaced by removing the 2 screws and "clicking" out the small panel) Check that the compressor is running at the bottom rear of the fridge/freezer before anything else.

Refrigerator not cooling properly


You may have a low freon condition in the fridge section. Look to see if you have an ice block building up on the rear wall towards the lower left side. If so, you are low on freon and the ost likely culprit is a leaking evaporater. The best way to tell if you are low on freon for sure is to take out all the shelves, remove the light cover, then the 2 screws holding the fan cover, and then remove the back wall. You wont be able to pull it all the way out cause the cold control is attached to it for the freezer and fridge so be careful. Turn the fridge control all the way up to 10 and wait till the compressor is running. you can tell if the compressor is running by pushing in the little switch on the top of the door frame and seeing if the fan runs(one switch is for lights, the other for fan) if it runs the compressor is on. anyway watch the coils and see if they develop frost all the way from top to bottom. If they dont you are low on freon and are ooking at about a $600 repair. if it does frost all the way you may have a bad cold control or a stalling fan motor up by the condensor on top. The best way to tell this is the next time the fridge feels warm, sheck the frame around the door seal and see if it is hot to the touch. If it is you almost surley have a bad condensor fan motor. Hope you can wade through all tis to find the answers. Good Luck!
