Re: stopped running

Sounds like a control board failure. Use the diagram at this site to see the "inside" of the unit. Also check that the main switch is functioning properly, etc. And here for descriptions...

Fridge freezer just stopped working. Why?

Only 6 months old? It should still be under warranty, i.e., you can get it diagnosed/fixed at no cost to you.

Have to slam freezer door to clear 88 error codes on samsung refrigerator

I am not certain on this, but my guess is that you have a problem with the door closed sensor, which should be attached to the door/ light actuating button. It may be faulty, or just out of adjustment. I assume that you have contacted Samsung about what error code 88 is. Do they have any other input? What doesn't make sense is that the fridge turns off. You would think that if the door sensor read "Open door" it would continuously run, rather than shutting off, unless it is causing an overload, or overheating condition. I have had good luck w/ Samsung tech dept., but they can be a little hard to reach. Hope this helps.

Galaxy mini fridge stopped working

The thermostat, which is also an ON_OFF switch has failed (@ 99% probability).

No, the little fridge doesn't have a pressure switch to turn the compressor off when freon is low. And no, auto freon is the wrong kind and it wont work in the little fridge. The freon that your little fridge uses is the stuff that all the fuss has been about (with the ozone layer), so it is not sold to appliance owners but only to licensed techs.

If this is helpful I hope you'll take a sec to rate me. Thanks!

The fridge stopped working. what to do. its three years old

It could be due to following reasons 1 There is no power supply. Check the power cord and the plugs. Ensure that there is bend/breakage in the power cord. Ensure that the plugs are connected properly with the cord. If the lamp inside the fridge is lighting that means the power supply is OK. 2 The compressor has stopped functioning or burnt due to overload. 3 The gas has leaked out. You must have noticed less cooling over the months. 4 Check the thermostat switch.
For 2 & 3 you will have to call a technician. I hope you have been carrying out the servicing once a year.

Problem with digital thermostat

you have to decide if the fridge is faulty or the thermostat
if you think it is the thermostat thet bridge out the switching contacts that make the compressor run
is the compressor running constantly
is the cooling fan working
is the condenser blocked with dirt
if 1 of these are at fault then the fridge is not going to drop the temerature

Pressed a button, now fridge won't work

you have pressed the defrost button that is why the compressor stops and would not come back on. there could be a temperature sensor on the thermostat or a timer where in it would only reset back after the temperature of the fridge warms up. try to remove all the food and let is sit for a while, plugged and watch if the compressor would kick in after about two hours or untill the fridge warms up. if the button is stuck, you may have to spray lubricant in the thermostat or replace the thermostat .
