New fridge I bought a Haier Model#HMSE03WAWW-01 Compact Fridge the other day, hooked it up 24 hours after putting it in place, and it doesn't cool at all. I can hear the compressor running but I'm not sure whats wrong.

    i have the same problem. we actually laid the boxed refrigerator on it's side/back when transporting it home. we plugged it in right away and when we realized the next morning that it was still warm, we checked the manual. (should've checked the manual first i guess.) it seems we were supposed to leave it upright for 24 hours before plugging it in. so now we're stuck with a new haier compact refrigerator that turns on but doesn't cool. is there a way we can replace the refrigerant? if so, what type and what's the cost? is it worth to try to fix it or should we just get a new one?

My mini fridge stopped working while I was at work

RF-6850-16 Start Relay
Is the compressor again getting hot once you turn the temperature down? Will the refrigerator cool if you turn the temperature to as cold as it can get? Reason I ask is I am trying to decide if it is the thermostat or a defective staryt relay. Even at the cost of parts I would be careful and sure of what you are going to do here. Haier is not well know for quality products or customer support and there are other brands names out there that will support customers much better than Haier. Not trying to say bad things about your refrigerator I just hate to see when people invest into something and then get left holding something that Haier will not help with and does to all of their customer. Thanks Sea Breeze
I have lost valuable customers because of Haiers lack of customer support.

Mini Fridge is on but doesn't get cold

Good Afternoon Corey - When any refrigerator is tilted or on its side it needs to be in an upright standing position for approximately 24 hours before being plug in. The freon has to travel down in the lines and it will not function properly until it does so. Locate the unit in a room temperature environment and once the unit is plugged in, it is recommended to wait another 24 hours to place food inside for the temperature to stabilize. Once the compact refrigerator is in operating mode, both the fan and compressor should be running. If it does not, then the unit may possibly have a faulty compressor, relay or sealed system issue. Because it is a smaller appliance, repairs are often more costly than the actual unit replacement because they may or may not have parts available.

My Mini fridge Doesn't Get Cold, it's running, I've tried unplugging it for a day and then plugging it back in , still not getting cold..Looked at back and everything looks fine..Except..T

Replace the fridge compressor with another one, try a Google search and maybe you'll find result's for your specific fridge. If all else fails, then ring up your fridge manufacturer and talk to them about your fridge, and if you still have warranty and you complain hard enough, they might just send in a new compressor.

Sides of Haier Compact Fridge are very hot to the touch

On some small units such as this, the condenser coil is actually in the walls of the cooler. It is not that unusual for this type of construction. I have seen this in chest freezers and other such units. If the unit makes the desired temperature, I would watch it for a day or 2 before putting any product into it to ensure it is okay and so you don't loose any product.

You have a refrigerant leak sorry I suggest to get a new one because they are not wort to repair then unless you happen to do that for a living. will cost you more to fixed than the fridge wort. :(

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.
