Question about Refrigerators
I have a second hand fridge, it runs good for a week then stops running and defrosts, is this normal or is the fridge had it's day. Thanks, Paul.
If your second hand fridge is over 5 years old, then it might be time to buy a new one. Most fridges nowadays have a lifespan of 5-8 years the most. Danni

Adjust the temperature control for the freezer to a normal setting. Fast freeze is only for when new products are put in that need to be frozen. This locks the system into a continuous run mode and could be responsible for the freezing condition in the refrigerator section. Check the temperatures with a thermometer as the sensor for the freezer temperature could be bad causing the light to come on.

it should come back after about 20 mins only and should cool back after about 10 mins.
i'm afraid the buzzing sound could be coming from your compressor which can not start. the over current relay is tripping off after 20 seconds to prevent the compressor from burning up.
i suggest to unplug the ref, let it cool for 1 day, re plug it after a day and observe the compressor if would run.
if the buzzing sound is still there and the unit is no longer cooling, then the compressor is not running.
check the relay of the compressor. it could just be the relay.
tnx 4 using fixya,

If you would like to stop the defrost timer from intermittently causing this, the defrost timer will need to be replaced. It's a simple part to replace and not expensive. Thanks, Sea Breeeze

Please check the defrost timer at the back of your refrigerator and also check the defrost thermostat. Defrost thermostat wiring(part #240) could be loose. You'll need to remove the back panel, held in place by 5 screws. Locate the defrost thermostat and disconnect it from the wire connection to another part. Due to the connection requirement, you may need to cut the wires from the original part and splice it with the connector with wires to the new part. After securing the spliced wires and covering in electrical tape, replace the panel and all the screws.
Please do rate this solution and revert for further assistance.

do a total, 24hour,defrost,with the doors open,(loads of towels)this should melt all the ice you cant see/get at.DO NOT use hairdryers/scrappers as they only do the surface ice.Wash out/spray all vents/drains with clorine bleach.(clorine is a gas and the smell will not permeate food if left to vent naturally) then switch onto fast freeze,check door seals are tight all round(hot cloth will help mould them).hope all works well for you/please leave feedback.ta!
