Here are two things I learned about this.
1) Underneath your refrigerator is a compressor with a "Kilx-on" mounted onto it.
The "klix-on" is a half of a two piece thing about the size of your fist, and is attached to the compressor.
The Klix-on is removable from the other piece and it is what starts the compressor when that is needed.
I just bought one for $ 38 from a local appliance parts store.
The way to test it is to tap the klix-on that is already on your refrigerator with a hammer, whilst it is plugged in, and see if it starts. If it does, you may have found the problem.
2) Sometimes the problem is with the temperature selector/on & off switch inside the refrigerator.
That switch has a set of points, and they can stick.
To try to keep that from happening, you should , once a year, turn the switch dial on and off about a dozen times, opening and closing the points.
God bless your efforts.
You can switch it on immediately. Its getting late. Do it now and enjoy the benefits that much earlier.
There are no pre-power-on processes. Once plugged in it is ready to be used. But do give it enough time to cool the contents.
take a putty knife and pry out the door switch from its resting place in the door,take some electrical cleaner and clean and lube it then try it again,if it still doesn't make/break connection,replace it,a lot of times they just get sticky from spills and dirt,etc
Could be the GFI switch.
The washer has a 3-prong (grounded) plug, what about the other appliances that you tested?
The GFI may not have a good ground and the 3-prong appliance provided a "difference" that the GFI detected as a "fault".
I'm assuming this is on a GFCI outlet? May be a problem with the outlet rather than the Fridge. I had an outlet that would do the same thing when it encountered loads. I replaced it and everything was fine.
50 feet is the maximum range for the switch, per manufacturers spec. Range is diminished somewhat for walls, doors, etc.
IIRC, there is a plug in transceiver available from Leviton, however, if the price of the booster for the main panel is included in the $100 installation, then I'd say that's a fair price. You may try to keep fresh batteries in the switch.
Hi, this is gil1714 in Scotland. how to defrost freezer cda cw186. lost instructions? try getting the user manual online and print it. just enter the make and model on google and choose best info. in the meantime extract contents and wrap in blankets/duvets to keep cold. open door and push defrost button or switch unit off at mains plug. use appropriate containers and towels to catch melt water . you may use a hairdryer or fan heater to speed this process but don't get them too close to the plastic bits. if using the defrost button it should auto-reset, if it switches back on too soon, switch off at mains. leave for half hour after defrosting, switch back on and restock. Hope this is helpful . gil
