Question about Refrigerators
This is a used fridge which was supposed to be working fully OK but was mistakenly laid flat during transportation and would not run when switched on afterwards. However, it did start working again after being left standing fully upright for several days. Due to events it was left uninstalled and switched off for several months and, just prior to installing, have discovered it is now not working properly. If left in upright position it now doesn't run (doesn't cool and compressor not running). If stood leaning forward by about 30 degrees from vertical it starts running OK and cools OK but stops when placed fully upright again. A second query is how can I remove the thermostat knob and cover ? Although not likely to be the cause of above problem I thought to check it out anyway but there are no obvious screw fixings so cannot open and access and do not want to risk forcing and breaking anything. Your advice re both problems will be much appreciated.

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

if the motor runs it cant be the thermostat then it is low gas inside the system and it must be cold after 30min

SOURCE: refrigerator not cooling
You model if the ARB1950C has a defrost timer inside the fresh food compartment and behind the temperature control panel. Need to see if you can manualy turn the timer clockwise until the compressor stops. During that time of 25 minutes the freezer should be in defrost. I believe your timer needs replaced based on how you explained what is happening. The part number for your timer is 67001036 and can be found at the links below. If it stays longer that 25 minutes then it's sticking in the defrost section of the defrost timer and will need to be replaced. If your refrigerator does not restart after about 25 minutes then slowly turn the timer through the opening in the plastic cover. There may be a plug covering the hole to make the hole not so visible. If you should have problems fell free to let me know, Thanks Sea Breeze
