Sounds like your refridgerant compressor or the motor driving it has bit the dust.  I am assuming it does not kick on or you can't hear it running.  Call a local appliance repair to get a quote, but 9 times out of 10, it is cheaper to replace the fridge.  A motor and compressor can cost upwards of 300-600 bucks.  That is just from my knowledge and your model may be higher or lower.  Best to get an appliance guy to take a look.

MY GARMIN STREETPILOT C310 WORKED THIS MORNING, BUT NOW WILL NOT SWITCH ON?


It is also 7+ years old. in technology years that is like 140 years old. retire it and get a Nuvi.

Remember that time you went to start your car and it worked yesterday but today it would not start... bad stuff happens.

If you are holding out hope, try leaving it plugged into the car or outlet
try holding the power button for a long time (30 sec)
try plugging it into a computer and see if anything happens.

ED5SHEXKQ01 is 7 years old. Stopped cooling. Fan is running.


It could be your compressor trying to kick in. Or it could be your defrost system trying to start or stop. The least expensive thing to start is to replace the start kit on the compressor. Call or email us and we'll be sure to get the right part to you asap. You need to turn it off NOW before you burn the other parts up and don't turn it back on until you install new parts.

Moved refrig this morning and now it is not cooling... freezer works great


Hih, Check and see if something has stopped the condenser fan motor down by the compressor from turning. Sometimes this happens in a move.
Also make sure the controls didn't get turned to wrong settings. Make sure evaporator fan motor is working in freezer and that there is no frost building up on the rear panel.
Just some ideas to help you.
lease let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic
