Remote chance fridge is on defrost cycle but more likely the compressor has seized.
Have it check by a qualified tech.
It's usually cheaper to buy another fridge than to have the compressor replaced and new refrigerant installed.

Hi I have a domestic rm3862 refrigerator and it will not cool on gas or elect we replace the elect board and still don't work it get hot not cold


Evaporation fridges are normally reliable and have the advantage of being silent. There is no compressor but there is a heating element that should cause the gas to circulate. Under normal circumstances the fridge thermostat should switch off the heating element when the interior is cold enough and the subsequent heating cycles will be so short the heat will not disrupt the fridge operation.

If the fridge is not cooling the thermostat will not switch off the heater and eventually it will begin to warm the interior.

It will not cool if there is insufficient refrigerant.
It will not cool if there is no refrigerant gas.
In this case it will be because a leak has allowed it to escape.

It will not cool if the refrigerant has settled away from the heating element. This happens sometimes if the fridge has been unused for a time or transported in a non-upright way.

It sounds odd but years ago we had a large American Electrolux evaporation type fridge that was unused for a while and would not work. We were told to take it outside and to spend an hour tipping it over and over. We did this and when we plugged it in it began to work like a brand new fridge even though at that time it was nearly 30 years old...

It was still working when we gave it away five years later.

Fridge/Freezer


Probably be cheaper to get new one, it has probably had the compressor fail or a leak in the cooling system.

My propane fridge will not get cold


You have described an Ammonia refrigerator. The chemicals in the system are Ammonia, water, and hydrogen. In a crazy system of events, heating the bottom of the unit will cause the chemicals to seperate and then reunite in a complete cycle.
If you have never smelled a strong ammonia smell, then yes, the upside down thing will many times work.
The chemicals can become seperated in the wrong areas of the interior components.
Perform the upside down thing for 24 to 48 hours. Return to normal. Pause it for minimum of 4 yours and try again.
If the burner is working correctly, then you should see some results.

I have a Beko fridge freezer just over a year old. This is kept in an unheated garage and has just stopped working. The light is on so the power is OK. The manual does say that thew fridge should not be...


Switch off fridge unscew & lower stat & light housing, note positions of blue doulble wire & red/grey, the blue wire spade is permanent live for light, fit red/grey to this spade the motor should then run,I let it run for 5mins then replaced wires to there normal position,I think it is due to fridge not running enough when cold. it worked for me so try it. (at your own risk.) best of luck.
