IS THIS A AUTOMATIC DEFROST UNIT? IF SO THEN THE DEFROST CLOCK PROBABLY IS BAD, LOOK UNDERNEITH BY THE COMPRESSOR AND THERE SHOULD BE A SQUARE ISH BAX THAT HAS 4 WIRES COMING OUT OF IT. TAKE AND TURN THE RED KNOB WITH A SCREW DRIVWER UNTIL THE COMPRESSOR COMES ON. IF THAT WAS NOIT IT TAKE A HAIR DRIER AND HEAT UP THE LIDUID LINE DRIER SOME TO TRY TO CLEAR THE RESTRICTION ON THE DRIER. GOOD LUCK (SORRY ABOUT ALL CAPS BUT GOT TIRED OF CORECTING THE SPELLING) NOT SHOUTING

If you transported it on its side or carried it on its side for a while and did not allow about six hours standing time before switching it on, you may have burned out the motor because the oil/gas mixture will have been dispersed into the system and needs time to drain back into the compressor. In this case there is nothing to do but call in a repairman and possibly replace the compressor..

HI There,

If it was transported to to your house not in an upright position, then you may need to unplug it and wait for 8 hours to have the fluids settle before starting it again. If that is not the issue, ensure that there is ample space at the back of the unit, between the wall and the fridge to help circulate the air. Inspect the coil found at the back of the freezer for ice build up or dirt. If there is let it melt and have the unit cleaned out first before restarting.

Red alarm light is on on Westinghouse upright freezer


Most probably during transportation either the coolant(previously freon gas) may have leaked out so the pressure on the cooling pipeline causing the red alarm because the compressor will overheat if the fridge is kept running at very cold thermostat readings and no effect of cooling the fridge will ultimately result in the compressor getting burnt. However fist have look at thermostat setting knob which could have loosened during transportation and just pushed into the spindle without knowing the correct angle, thus even though it looks as if on high cool but could also be the lowest setting..........sodeep

Food is defrosting in my hotpoint frost free fridge/freezer


Can you hear the compressor running? Is the fan inside the freezer running? It could be that a wire connection has come loose during the move. Was the fridge laid on it's side during the move? If so you probably have compressor oil restricting the refrigerant system. If compressor and fan are running you will probably need a qualified refrigeration tech to check it out.
