Ref has no power

We had power outage problem for more than 1.5 hours in the local residential area last night (12/24). We found out the ref. does not response to the control pad on the door - no temp. on either ref or freezer.

    Thanks for the reply promptly, we'd reset gfi but it's not a plug-in problem. In fact we found a solution submitted by user rwparker1. (listed below) After we followed the instruction, our ref is up running! :-)

    Ok, what I found out is that there are codes built into the front
    panel. If you hold the top left and right buttons for 5 seconds, the
    fridge will reset. If there are no issues, the panel goes blank. If
    there is a dash in the right side of the panel, there is an issue with
    the fridge side. In the left, freezer side. The dash indicates a
    defrost problem. Only a couple of things can cause this. 1. Sensor 2.
    Heater 3. Fan, 4. control board.

First thing to do is to make sure that the plug is hot that your refrigerator is plugged into. Most of the time it's a gfi and it may need to be reset. if youi don't see it there sometimes the electricians will pu it in the garage and or the bathroom but it is still on the same circuit. Hope that htis helps you out.

Have a new frigidaire how long does it take for ice bin to fill after waterline install


Ice maker will call for water 12-14 hours after plug in. If the ref was running and then Waterline was connected it should call for water in 4 hours or less. Easy rule, after 24 hours, ice bin should be full.

ED2khaxvq01 not cooling ref and freezer


Sir, To solve this problem, you must open the compressor area at the back bottom of the refrigerator and chek the temperature of the pressure line. If the temperature is between 55celcius to 60 than its ok. Or else you need to change the refrigerant. I suggest you to contact the service authority.

Whirlpool refrigerator not cooling after storm


Assuming that both freezer and refrigerator temperatures have risen and the humming sound that you heard was followed by a sudden click more than likely the start device on the compressor has gone bad. This is a common problem with all Whirlpool refrigerators (KitchenAid is Whirlpools top of the line product and suffers the same problem).

We had a power outage which lasted 45min - 1 hour. We never opened the refrigerator doors until the power came back on. At which point the temperature inside the refrigerator had already gone up 15...


Check and clean your fridge door seals as they may be dirty, have perished/not flexible or even crack.
All doors should also close with a positive 'hermetic' feel: check and remove any obstruction.
You can check the firmness of the seal round the door with a thin piece of plastic or cardboard wedge between the seal and door 'frame'.
Hope it helps.

It is unlikely that a power outage by itself will cause your problem. Recheck hour refrigerator thermostat. It should regulate to 38-42 degrees F. You can take an outdoor thermometer and put it into the fridge compartment, leave it for an hour or two and check. Adjust as necessary. If that doesn't fix it, we can proceed further.
