Question about Haier Refrigerators

1 Answer

Haier HSW02C runs ALL the time

My Haier mini fridge started freezing things a couple of days ago. I adjusted it from 5 to 4, and it froze worse. Oops, must have read the scale backwards. Went to 6, and froze even worse. Turned it to OFF, and it kept running. Uh-oh. Unplugged it overnight, plugged it back in, with the dial on "off" (I can feel the dial "click" between "Off" and "1"), and it started right up. Seems like it runs 100% of the time when there's power. Bad thermostat? Looks like a $15 part. Hard to replace? I don't know. Is it worth putting $15 into an 8-year-old fridge that I could replace with a new one for about $70?

Yes your thermostat is shorted. It's just not shutting the unit off ever. A thermostat is something you can touch as a user, so no it's not that hard to get to for replacement. Also have the unit unplugged while learning how to repair your appliance.

1st.Check the freezer door gasket for any place it maybe torn or not making a 100% seal when you close the door.That would make temperature drop. 2nd.take off bottom kick plate so you can look under the refrigerator.Using a flashlight make sure there is not alot of lint / dust stuck on the coils .If there is remove it carefully and you will see temperature lower. PLEAS RATE THIS!

SOURCE: Fridge and freezer on GE GSS25SGMDBS not working

see if the compressor motor is running

The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. It's on the outside of the refrigerator at the back near the bottom. If it is humming or making a continuous noise and your refrigerator is still not cooling, there may be a more serious problem with one or more of several different components, we recommend contacting a qualified appliance repair technician for further help.

If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the refrigerator, there may be a problem with one or more of these:

  • The compressor


  • The Thermostat


  • The overload, relay, or capacitor


  • The defrost timer


  • The condenser fan motor

since your mini fridge is under warranty, have a technician come and take a look at it. i would say it's the damper.

SOURCE: my fridge won't cool down or freeze

Your condenser is likely dirty clean it. the compressor could be tripped out on over load (to hot) unplug the fridge a couple hours should do it . plug it back in make sure the thermostat is on and set correctly if that does not work you will need service. Tom

I have a haier mini fridge model #HSW02C when i plug it in it humms for a few seconds then it clicks then i hear nothing could this be the relay? any sugestions?


I would say that the motor is humming because it is not turning and the click is when the overload control switches the power off. It may be a start run capacitor blown out but it may be a seized compressor motor. have a fridge mechanic check it out.

Haier refrigerator hsw02c does not run


These are pretty simple units. If you look on the back you will see a schematic. More or less there is an overload protector in series with the thermostat in series with the compressor. If the overload protector is not open and there is still no 120VAC at the compressor with the thermostat turned all the way up then the answer is a bad thermostat. If there is 120VAC at the compressor and it is not running then the compressor is bad. That's about it.

My Haier mini fridge (model # HSW02C) is freezing everything in it's contents no matter what number setting (1-7) it's on. Is 1 supposed to be the coldest setting, or is 7? What should I do?


Hello
Number 1 may be the warmest.Set it to 2 or 3 and give it some time,a couple of hours to level out.

If this does not work try a higher number.

If still no luck then the thermostat or sensing bulb is bad and should be replaced.

Haier mini fridge model hswo2c not working


on its side? considering the chemicals inside the freezing elements, it needs to sit upright for 24 hours before you plug it in, or you may break it. so if thats what you mean, why is it sideways?

After my mini fridge was left open over night, it doesnt get cold anymore....


Being left open can let lots of moisture in that can freeze up the air circulation paths. First thing is to leave it off and unplugged for a couple days to melt any hidden ice build up from being open all night. Then start it up like normal and see if it works properly. If not then repost and we'll go from there.
