Need new A/C adaptor

A/C adaptor stopped working after a short brownout when the power came bacl on (I suppose it was a power surge). I've tried to find a replacement and either I don't know the correct verbiage to do a google search (I've used Input 100-240 VAC 50-60 Hz 1.0 A Output +12VDC 4A) or they don't have this avaiable. Can anyone help? I need my Diet Mt. Dew at my desk again!!!! KC

Front panel stopped working and fridge is not running now,interior light works ,no humming or clicking sounds when plugged in ,short power failure before it stopped working

IF the power failure was due to lightning or something that caused a surge, the control board is most likely bad. You can attempt to reset it by unplugging it for 5 minutes and try again. If not you are looking at a new control board. You could contact your insurance for coverage due to the power issue.

Electrolux refrigerator not working properly i have change new one picture i ve attach here thou sometime it run but after few minute it stop please suggest what should i check.

Hi, have you tried adjusting the thermostat control, if the fridge is not cooling enough you can set it to a lower temperature. There will be a rotating knob somewhere on your fridge that can turn the temperature down. Sorry if I appear a little confused, the fridge is supposed to stop after a few minutes of cooling, it should not be using the compressor all the time.
Maybe lowering the temp will soet the issue.

Power surge brand new maytag fridge not cooling

That power surge probably burnt out the guse on the circuit board. I suspect you may need a new board unless you know an electricity geek who can replace the fuse. New I would check your warranty. That circuit board might cost $200. plus..

Frigidaire FRS26ZSH -ice & water dispenser panel lost power

I think you will need to unplug the pin plug under the cover at top or bottom hinge. Check the voltage and if OK leave unplugged until you can remove the dispenser and I will try to help you from the power source. Sounds like a short in the board and related to the light socket. The fuse only stopped the short from doing further damage, You may need to locate the short before replacing the fuse or board. I have looked over the wiring diagram. If you find the short without my help just be sure to replace the fuse with the correct size. The only things are the chute heater or something in that area of the board went to ground. Do you have a voltage meter? Contact me later when ready, Sea Breeze

check and see if compressor is is the black round component with tubing running to it you should be able to fill it vibrating if it is running.power surges can damage the starting components.also many newer refrigerators have electronic controls that can be damaged by surges,brownouts probably need a technician

Compressor problem after brownout

When you say the compressor is not running, is it cold, or very hot?
If Hot remove power let it cool off then reconnect to power, listen carefully to see if compressor starts. If it does GREAT. If it does not you should hear a click after a few seconds. That is a safety device to stop power to the compressor, or it would destroy itself from drawing too much power from not turning. If this happens then the compressor is stuck. (this is as far as you can go without an AC man)
If it's cold, and has been plugged in for a while then either power is not reaching the compressor ( bad safety device mentioned above stuck open or burned out), or you have an open connection. This open connection could be outside, or inside the compressor. If inside, then compressor replacement is the only solution.
Another problem,if cold and it's a frost less unit, it could be the defrosting clock stuck on defrost. This would make the inside of unit warm because it turns on a defrosting heather. If this is you case then find the clock. usually positioned at front bottom behind the removable grill. It has a one way slotted fit. Use a wide flat screwdriver to slowly turn the dial to see if compressor starts. If it does great, but not done yet. After a while turn clock again slowly until the compressor stops, then wait (up to 30 minutes) to see if starts up again. If it does not clock needs replacement. I usually replace clock anyway at the first sign of problem, because chances are it will stop again. Best I can do without being there, hope it helps you.
