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.

My balance board won't turn on either

You have to sync it up to the Wii. Open the little compartment under the reset button. Press the little red button, and press the red sync button on the balance board. Which can be found were the batteries are placed.
