Refergerator stopd working

We pluged in the refrigerator right away after moving it. The tag said not to for 24 hours. Needless to say it stoped working. Is there a reset button or am I just screwed?

Did you check all the brakers? also did you lay it on its side? if so you need to wait 24 hours before pluging it in.

My refrigerator wont work after laying it down to move it. What should I do?


I've done that before and there's no hope for it. Once you laid it down the freon got a air pocket in the compressor and it will no longer work. Guy from sears told me that laying them down ruins them.

What tool do i use to get control panel off of a frigidaire refergerator


Good Afternoon Friend, that's a great question!

With your model number I may provide you the correct information. You can normally locate the serial tag (which lists your model number) inside the cabinet, on the left/right side wall. Thank you! - Z

Stopped working


If you transported it on its side then you have air bubbles in the compressor. Most of the time the air bubbles will move to its proper place in 8-24 hours of it setting upright. However, you might have done dame to the compressor if you applied power and left it on. Suggest you unplug and let set for 24 hours and then try it again.

We moved our refridgerator on its side.


You HAVE to wait 24 hours , for the oil to go back into the compressor , before plugging it in . If not , the compressor will try to pump refrigerant thru the oil , causing an unrepairable restriction . In other words , ruining the refrig .

Moved fridg to new house pluged it in dosen,t get coled at all!!!


If you had to lay the fridge down to move it? Then you have to let it stand upright for at least 24 hours before you can plug it in and use it or it won't cool, as oil will get into the coolant lines and foul the works.
If you didn't have to lay it down, then check for a switch and or harness under the front grill that may have got bumped out of adjustment of knocked the plug off.
I hope this helps you, and good luck.

Frezer working fine but fridge not cooling


Mo, open the freezer door and look for the model tag. There should be a manufacture date on the tag. The product has a 2 year complete warranty, 5year parts and labor on the sealed system and 5-12 years parts only. The factory number is 800-222-7820 and maybe able to tell you when it was installed, They may walk you through a couple of items to tell you what was happening.
