Question about Refrigerators
I accidently left the refrigerator door open on my Sub Zero for about a half hour. I walked by and saw the light was off and the door was open.
I thought the refrigerator was shut off (and the noise I heard was just the freezer part) so I pushed the on-off button. The refrigerator turned off and now it won't turn back on when I push the button to on.
Hello, you need to find out if the evaporator fan in the freezer is working.
or if the evaporator is all iced up. If the fan is not working you will
need to replace it. If the coils are all iced up you have a defrost
problem and that will need to be resolved. Once a evaporator is all iced
over air can not pass through it and you will loose your cooling in the
refrigerator first. Check the heater and the terminator to make sure
they are good. You can use a hair dryer to clear the ice off the
evaporator. Once you find the bad part replace it and the unit will

This component is a heating element located on the evaporator coil. When the refrigerator or freezer switches to the defrost cycle, the defrost heater is turned on to melt the frost in the compartment. Failure of the defrost heater causes failure to defrost.Test the element with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. To gain access to the heating element, remove the compartment's wall panels. Clip one probe of the VOM to each element terminal. The meter should read between 5 and 20 ohms. If it doesn't, the heating element is faulty and should be replaced. Replace the heater with a new one of the same type and electrical rating. Connect the new heater the same way the old one was connected.
