This maybe an intentional feature of the unit.
When it's off open the door and leave it open. If after a short period it turns back on each time you do this then the refrigerator is doing this intentionally.
Once the thermostat reaches a certain temperature because of the effectiveness of modern insulation the unit can pretty much shut itself off.

A quick glance through the user manual also indicates that the displayed temperature will not change while the fast ice/fast cool functions are in operation.

Obviously the issue maybe much more complicated such as a dodgy thermostat or other issue but it maybe cheaper to check the above first.

Sorry if I've wasted your time.

Our kitchen aid side by side refrigerator shut off randomly and now it won't turn back on. i click the power button and every button lights up and beeps then shuts back off


I would suggest trying to clean out the ventilation intake. If hair or dust bunnies clog the air intake, it will overheat and shut down.

The ambient temperature might be high. Check whether the foolinf fans are working or not. If not, check out the reason for it. The TV must be placed at least 6cm away from wall, and should have sufficant ventilaation.

The air conditioner for my 2001 volvo v70 turbo will shut down periodically while running in hot weather or when running while the vehicle is stopped (traffic) for an extended period. Shutting the AC off,...


There may be a restriction in the plumbing of the air conditioning system that is making the high side pressure too high, thus shutting off the a/c for safety reasons.

Or, the refrigerant pressure on the low side is too low, caused by not enough r134a refrigerant in the system.

Harmon kardon avr 125 shuts down


If you want to fix it:

It must be a contact problem arount the power switch, power cable, fuse or the condensator area.
Maybe you can se a black color on the board.
And checking the solderind points with a magnifyer can help too.

Thats all from that distence.
