Fridge will come on and run for 30 seconds then shut off. repeats this steady. i think it is a thermostat problem.j

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.

Sounds like the cold control has stuck . Unplug the two wires from the cold control and plug them together. Turn one wire over and plug it into the other. away from the cold control.
The cold control is the knob in the ref that turns it on and off and has numbers on it. (Thermostat)
If it runs then that cold control (Thernostat) is the problem.
If that doesn't work DO THIS:
The relay on the compressor may need replaced
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
Thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
also try hooking the two wires together on the cold control to route around the cold control.

I have a ignis fridge 2 door, when the electricity goes off, water from the fridge runs down to the floor. is it normal for it to behave like that when the power is off? i dont have a manual

The drain in the freezer behind back lower panel
needs opening. You can see it at the bottom of the back panel
underneath the evaporator coils. (The cold coils)
Run Hot water in the drain until it clears or use a hairdryer.
When the defrost melts the water it goes down the drain
If the drain is clogged with Ice or ? The defrost water
overflows into the ref. or freezer
Run Hot water in the drain until it clears or use a hairdryer.
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

Brand new danby dcr34bl refrigerator not working

Often times refrigerators need to sit for a day or so before being used, moving them scatters the refrigerant through the system making them useless.

It is also possible that durring shipping the system may have been compromised, allowing the refrigerant to escape. Have a technician check it out before you try to return it

Pressed a button, now fridge won't work

you have pressed the defrost button that is why the compressor stops and would not come back on. there could be a temperature sensor on the thermostat or a timer where in it would only reset back after the temperature of the fridge warms up. try to remove all the food and let is sit for a while, plugged and watch if the compressor would kick in after about two hours or untill the fridge warms up. if the button is stuck, you may have to spray lubricant in the thermostat or replace the thermostat .

After defrosting the freezer the whole fridge doesn't work (is warm!)

sounds like the compressor is locked up or the relay on the compressor is bad. whats happening is its drawing too much current and cutting out from the overlaod relay. that may be a bad compressor or the start relay. both the overload and the relay are under the black box on the front of the compressor. you will need to check the relay to make sure its good, and also the compressor. there should be a wiring diagram on the back that will tell you how many ohms from terminal to terminal on the compressor. hope it helped if its a newer unit the relays are electronic and if you shake it and hear like little sand pebbles in it most likley its bad and thats why it wont run.
