Re: light on but not cold

We could use a few more details to identify the problem. Does the fridge turn on fine and run (is there a noise at the back?) Does the back get warm at all? Have you defrosted it recently? most similar fridges do not have a resettable "pressure switch". some have a resettable thermal cutout on the compressor, usually on the side. unplug the fridge from power before rooting around the compressor area. Hope this helps - awaiting more info :)

Red high temperature warning indictor light on how can I fix this


Not all refrigerators work the same, for example, Whirlpool has a temp button located on the control panel within the fridge section. By pushing this button reset with turn off the alarm. Again, ever unit and manufacture has different ways of correcting this issue. Are you having temperature issues? Are the compartments cold enough to hold food or drinks? Was there a power outage that caused this alarm to go off recently? This is an alarm system designed to alert you of a possible issue.
I hope this helps.
Look online under the manufacture name or call the manufacture directly and they should be able to assist on the light issue. You may be able to contact a service center to answers to clear this issue from the panel. 1-800-496-2982 ask for Bob. He can assist you in the issue if needed.

Good Luck

Kenmore 795 continually blowing cold air into frig

If the control will not change and the lock is lit, first try unlocking it. Press and hold the lock tab for 3 seconds. If nothing happens, try unplugging the power cord for 30 seconds and reconnect it. This will reset the board.

Fridge and freezer doesnt seem cold enough. Things are cool but not cold. Ice cream is not as hard as usual (soft but not melted). Ice maker not making ice. Adjusting thermostat doesn't seem to make a...

Please check the timer the thermostat and the heater for the auto defrosting to work. Switch off the fridge and after all the frost has gone off switch on to see if the sooling returns . If so you can be sure that the timerr does not work and so reduces cooling on frosting. If there is still no cooling then you will need to check onthe compressor and the gas pressure. Get help to confirm and take an estimate before attempting, get an warranty assurance for work. Hope you try out and see first.Good day

Fridge and freezer not cooling down

It seems it's the defrost sensor (freezer side). Waiting for it to come, ordered this morning. It appears to be a defrost fault, having read on the web it seems you can check the defrost sensor with a meter across whilst holding the actual sensor in your hand tightly to see if the resistance changes, anyway it didn't. Will post when the new one comes and I change it.

Whirlpool gold side by side refrigerator relay compressor?

turn it off for an hour or so and give the coils time to thaw just in case they somehow froze up. also if the frig was tilted in the wrong direction (which it doesnt sound like it was since it has food in it!!!) it could need time to let the refrigerant and oil settle back into the compressor.

where are you located (cold or warm climate)?
and where is the frig located (in your home)?

If your frig is plugged directly into a GFCI, you need to remove the GFCI and replace it with a standard plug. No one should have a GFCi behind a refrigerator.
