Have a qualified person (electrician) check the wiring in the outlet to make sure there is no bad connections or burnt wires behind the outlet,I would start at the outlet where the appliance burned up.The only thing in the system to replace would be the wire itself ,bad breaker or fuse depending on your elecrical panel, the fuse would be obvious and the breaker would not be able to be reset,but it sounds like you have power to the outlet,bad connections cause heat,which could cause a fire,Please have this checked by an electrician to be safe and a peice of mind.

    NO, There is no surge suppresors in the fridge,are the lights on,it however could be the compressor, low on oil, dirty cooling fins plugged up, cause over heating which will burn out the compressor clean it up with a brush and a vacume,( I use my air compresser to blow it out but it is by the door and witha fan behind me the dust is not to bad) make sure it is clean,give it time to cool down if hot, this lets the oil in the system to go back to the compressor.You need a qulified refrigeration tech to charge and check the coolent in it.

Plugged it in it worked great for the first few hours, but then it didnt stay cold. kept on about week, stayed spotty, getting cold, and not. im broke, need to fix'r myself, i just dont know how.

Do you know how to jump the thermostat wires? The problem could be the start relay, thermostat or a Freon leak. Does the compressor get hot while running? Does the compressor stop and start frequently?

My Haier refrigerator, model # AES44W, the compressor will not start. The relay keeps clicking apparently to keep it from damaging the compressor. Do I need a new overload protector as it does not have a...

This sounds like the relay has gone on the compressor. Call your local appliance parts store
(no model no. needed) and ask for a hard start kit. Instructions are on kit.
I use ERP 410 powerstart relay capacitor and over load. See it has everything and is much better than the original.
Remove the back cover, pull the original relay off the compressor pins, cut the two wires and install according to instructions. Very easy job.

Thanks for using fixya

Haier Mini spilt HSU18VC7 compressor runs for 5 minutes then stop 3 minutes then run another 5 minutes and so on.

This is called short cycling. It sounds like the compressor is getting hot and opening a bi-metal overload, which shuts the compressor off. The compressor cools, because it is not running and the bi-metal contacts close allowing the compressor to start again. This will repeat itself and is usually due to low refrigerant, which usually means there is a leak in the normally sealed refrigerant lines. The refrigerant cools the compressor windings and if it is low it cannot do that, hence the shutting off of teh compressor, cooling down process and restarting of your compressor. Short cycling will ultimately ruin the compressor.

If this has helped you please give me a rating worthy of my diagnosis.

I would try replacing relay and overload that plugs into compressor. Hopefully compressor hasn't shorted out. Take your model # to your local appliance parts store and tell them what you need.

Haier rrtw18vabw refrigerator is not working. Think I burnt the fuse. Trying to find out where it is located?

There is no built in fuse in refrigerator. Check the power plug with an ohmmeter,and the start relay of the compressor.

Could be anything, bad cord or plug, possible bad appliance bulb causing short (had that happen on another appliance) or the main problem, bad compressor.

My freezer fan is not working. Can it be fixed?

The fan won't work when the unit is in the defrost cycle. Some won't run when the door is open. It won't run when the compressor isn't running. Test it here> And yes, you can replace it.
