Depending on which side you laid it down during travel? If you look at the compressor (black dome shaped thing at the back) you will notice two tubes coming out of it. These should face upward so that the oil does not migrate through the system. It is possible that they were facing down and you now have a blockage. If the system were blocked the compressor would try to come on and run for a short while before cutting out on overload. If it is not coming on at all, and the fan is also not coming on, I would suggest you make sure that a wire has not come loose while you were moving it. Hope this helps

Hi there, I have a Samsung RS21DCNS F/F. and have just moved house and connected it all back up. The LED display lights up, but the fridge and freezers won't cool and there's no motor or fan...


Was the fridge laying down? How long? Rule is if a fridge is laying down for an hour leave standing for a minium of an hour WITHOUT PLUGGED IN. ^hours laying equals 6 hrs standing. I tell everyone give it 24hrs of standing to eliminate problems. If you plugged it in without enough time for the oil in the compressor to return back to the compressor you may have fried your compressor. Now if you did leave it long enough and the oil in the compressor got back in compressor before plugging in. It could be in your defrost timer or your start relay. Does the fan in freezer come on? Push the switch to make the fridge think door is shut. If fan does not run it sounds like the defrost timer. If fan does run the check the start relay on compressor. Does the compressor turn on? Do you hear a clicking sound coming from copressor? If you hear a clicking noise than its your start relay trying to come on. Replace start relay and overload. The model number you gave me is not valid so get the full model number and check thru Searspartsdirect.com

Hi,


Here is a tip that I wrote on moving refrigerators...if you did not do it this way then you may well have ruined a perfectly good refrigerator.

Moving a Refrigerator What is the best way

If you already have moved it wrong, you can sometimes get it working by plugging it in and unplugging it a number of times with an hour or so in between.

Would like to know if laying a feezer onit side would harm the freezer in any way Paul


Hi,
As long as the freezer is not plugged in while on it's side and after you put it right side up you wait an hour to let all the compressor oil drain back to normal nothing bad can happen.

Freezer works, fridge does not. Also the sides of the fridge are really hot but not up the top near freezer section. Fridge has recently been moved. Thanks


Warm sides are usually caused by the condenser fan which is underneath around back not running. If it's not running when the compressor runs it will cause the problem you describe. You will need to remove the cardboard backing on the back of the fridge to access the fan.


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.


When it was moved, was it laid down? If it was it should be stood upright for 24 hours before being plugged back in.

Kenmore top freezer. Bought it from a lady. Only


Was the fridge layed down when moving ? If so , did you let it stand for 24 hrs before plugging it in ? If you layed it down and didn't wait to plug it in , it's no good .
If you did not lay it down , remove the back panel and see if the compressor is running . If the compressor is hot but not running ,possible overload/relay bad . This is the piece that plugs onto the compressor . Also check that the fan that cools the compressor is working .If you remove the inside freezer panel , check to see that the freezer fan is working . Check to see if the coils are getting a light coat of frost on them .

How do you operate the GPS system simple way


1. Find a spot with a clear view of the sky.
2. Turn on the GPS.
3. Enter the coordinates you want to go to, while waiting for the system to get a fix. (30 seconds to 12 minutes)
4. Once fix is acquired, and your waypoint (destination) is entered, follow the compass indicator to travel to your destination.

Control panel inactive


See if you accidentally unpluged or damaged any wires under the refer during the move. There are connectors that can sometimes easily pull apart if a dolly hits them.
