    You will need to replace the main control board on the back of the unit. When you unplug it and plug it back in, you are resetting it and it will run till it cuts off again. Here is the part to order.http://bit.ly/X1GBdM

    Yes, there is nothing to it. Just take note of the plugs that attach to the board. The best way to do this is with a picture. Keep me posted!

SOURCE: refrigeration problem

It sounds very much like control board problem. The chances of both sensors at fault seems unlikely. Unusual that it is the exact same temp unless they are your setpoint requirements. I would advice contacting reliable fridge guy to check the cabinet. Hope this is of some if not much help.

SOURCE: Fridge freezer intermittently not switch

Hello Patdorrian,
Welcome.


0 Degrees is okay!
How long has the compressor been off when you need to switch it off and on to make it start again?
Perhaps it was on when you were out of the room for a short period?
Is it in a room that you spend hours in to be sure that this is the situation!
Do you have a thermometer in the freezer?

What is the model #.
And how old is the unit?

Waiting your response.

Bless You Huuum

SOURCE: Fridge cools for awhile then compressor cycles on and off

Not the compressor. Two reasons why. If your compressor was bad, you would not hear it at all, also the compressor would be very hot, do to the piston not moving and the shaft just moving or the liquid not turning into vapor. One way to check for sure is to take a multimeter and see your voltage. You can also touch the suction and the liquid line, if one is cold and the other is hot or warm then compressor is working ok. Also when you unplug the system and you reset everything, you are not reseting the compressor you are reset the relay

SOURCE: amount of time the compressor and fan stay on

No, that's not too long. It takes a long time to bring the temp in there down from room temperature to around 38 degrees and zero degrees in the fridge and freezer, particularly with the smaller, energy efficient compressors we now have in most of our appliances.

Was the fridge laying down? How long? Rule is if a fridge is laying down for an hour leave standing for a minium of an hour WITHOUT PLUGGED IN. ^hours laying equals 6 hrs standing. I tell everyone give it 24hrs of standing to eliminate problems. If you plugged it in without enough time for the oil in the compressor to return back to the compressor you may have fried your compressor. Now if you did leave it long enough and the oil in the compressor got back in compressor before plugging in. It could be in your defrost timer or your start relay. Does the fan in freezer come on? Push the switch to make the fridge think door is shut. If fan does not run it sounds like the defrost timer. If fan does run the check the start relay on compressor. Does the compressor turn on? Do you hear a clicking sound coming from copressor? If you hear a clicking noise than its your start relay trying to come on. Replace start relay and overload. The model number you gave me is not valid so get the full model number and check thru Searspartsdirect.com

If you need further assistance please feel free to contact.

Haier hsp03wna not working


The click you heard is the thermal overload. This snaps open when the compressor is too hot.
Unplug the unit for 24 hours and don't move it.
Then plug it in and see if it comes back on temp.

The defrost timer will turn off the compressor and its cooling fan. At the same time it turns on the defrost heater, and usually leaves the freezer fan running. Defrost can take half an hour, easy. As soon as the defrost thermostat is satisfied, the defrost heater is supposed to turn off, and the compressor may come back on. The defrost timer is about the size of a cell phone, with about five wires going to it in a plug. It has a small dial on it that only goes one way. You can mark it and wait a half hour to see if it moves.

Hot point side by side


Could be stuck in "defrost" mode. Happens a lot. See if you can hear if the compressor is running or the compressor cooling fan is running (in back underneath the unit). Worse case is the refrigerant leaked out and you have a sealed system problem.
