I have a Haier mini-fridge: HNSE05. It was working great for a while, and then just stopped one day. After it sits for a bit, you can get it going again by fiddleing with the temp setting dial (inside). Works fine again for a day or two, and then stops again.
First I thought maybe it was overheating (had it stuck in a fairly tight spot), but took it out into the middle of the floor to check... still shut down after a short time running.
How can I fix this? It's still under warrantee, but I cannot find my receipt, or even a contact number for Haier (I'm in Calgary, Canada).

RF-6850-16 Start Relay Is the compressor again getting hot once you turn the temperature down? Will the refrigerator cool if you turn the temperature to as cold as it can get? Reason I ask is I am trying to decide if it is the thermostat or a defective staryt relay. Even at the cost of parts I would be careful and sure of what you are going to do here. Haier is not well know for quality products or customer support and there are other brands names out there that will support customers much better than Haier. Not trying to say bad things about your refrigerator I just hate to see when people invest into something and then get left holding something that Haier will not help with and does to all of their customer. Thanks Sea Breeze I have lost valuable customers because of Haiers lack of customer support.
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.
my trf 285 intergrated fridge freezer has same problem fridge is freezing our food have been informed that a valvue is stuck open the solution offered was defrost and leave for 2 days i did that it did not work the valvue is not replaceable hope this is some help
The thermostat, which is also an ON_OFF switch has failed (@ 99% probability).
No, the little fridge doesn't have a pressure switch to turn the compressor off when freon is low. And no, auto freon is the wrong kind and it wont work in the little fridge. The freon that your little fridge uses is the stuff that all the fuss has been about (with the ozone layer), so it is not sold to appliance owners but only to licensed techs.
If this is helpful I hope you'll take a sec to rate me. Thanks! Don
Most times this is a bad cold control, but there are other things to check for. Make sure the condenser fan is working and the coils are not covered with dust. A separated heat exchanger ( small capillary tubing soldered to the large suction line ) can separate from one another and make the fridge run too long. - tape tubing back together. A poor working evaporator fan motor could also make the fridge run too long and freeze - replace the fan motor. An inefficient compressor or refrigeration system could make the fridge run too long and freeze - have a service tech check this out. A misaligned control settings, make sure the air damper and cold control have not been bumped and are out of normal settings. Stuck open air diffusers or air dampers are becoming more and more common for allowing too much air to be blown into the fresh food section and freezing things. On all frost free fridge's the freezer temp air is blown into the fresh food section, if you have "easy" to freeze items ( eggs, veggies in water, etc ) in front of or under where the freezer temp air comes out, they could freeze - store them in a different spot. Doors not closing properly making the fridge run too long is something else to check for.
