Question about Refrigerators
I have bought a brand new Hotpoint Fridge Freezer. The Green power light comes on ..the compressor starts and stops after 20 seconds. Tried this 3 times with similar result. It had stood for an hour whilst i rehung the door initially. Manual said 3 hours!! I missed reading that bit. any answers???
You may have plugged your freezer into a bad receptacle, which is not providing the proper voltage. (usually due to a loose wire or bad contacts in the receptacle.) After letting the unit sit for at least 10 minutes, plug it into a different outlet (preferably on a different breaker). You can use a heavy gauge (like 14 or 12 gauge) extension cord for the test. If it starts and runs, fix your original receptacle / breaker / wiring. If still the same results (compressor not starting), call for warranty service.
