Personally I never turn mine off, but then again they are never empty. If you are getting a loud humming that is the compressor, you will need a service tech. Be sure both thermostats are set low enough to call for cooling.

My refrigerator/ freezer doesn't seem to be too cool. Cleaned bottom coils and left unplugged for 24 hrs. Turned back on and it worked fine for a week. Now it is not cooling again. Any ideas why?


Hello Chris Conrad,

Worked fine for a week... is actually a pretty good sign...
MOST likely means the cooling is OK...

FROST-FREE (defrost)... should become your focus

TYPICALLY... (assuming you have that type of UNIT).

after the week... is it clogged with frost / ice (cool in the freezer area but not the refrigerator... (a week is a little less than average to become non-functional in the refrigerator (cheap little refrigerator thermometers come in really handy here... (but still cool in the freezer area where all the REAL cooling is done))).

Can you see frost/ice blocking any air slots in the FREEZER AREA??

Is water being put in the (I assume) "defrost pan" daily...?

Easy to check... put a strip of typing paper folded over the edge of the (water tray) defrost pan...

Still clean, straight & dry tomorrow = defrost circuit failure
(again.... assuming it is a "frost-free").

Yes (clean & straight) means I am wrong: paper
will look rumpled & ugly (possibly wet).

Then...

You have a HUGE AIR INTRUSION problem you need to fix first... (door alignments, gaskets, etc.) then get sophisticated about makes, model numbers... & how soon it takes to get ICE-BOUND.

You can comment me back... or get out the original
refrigerator documents... (typically) looking for:
- Defrost timer or control board
- Defrost thermostat
- Defrost HEATING ELEMENT

OR

Search on line to parts/spares + appliance+ (your model number).

Good luck...

Samsung RSH!NHSW fridge freezer Freezer fine. Fridge icing up. temperature between 8 and 10. Will not go lower. In cool place. Why?


We've just had exactly the same problem on our RSH1DBRS. After a recommendation from a friend of ours, we bought a DIY kit from Appliance DIY Repairs. It's a very simple repair, and ours is working just great. We had Comet out to it a month ago, but whatever they did never worked, and it went wrong again within a week. So it looks like the DIY idea worked!!!!!

I have a Kenmore 5 freezer, model 253.9135180. It's several years old granted but was working fine until 2 weeks ago. I unplugged it because it was clicking every minute or so like it was trying to turn...


Good day,
The clicking sound is the compressor trying to start and can't. The relay is clipped onto the side of the compressor and can be removed by pulling the relay off the compressor once the retrainer clamps are removed.
You can take the relay to most appliance parts houses. They Will be more than happy to test it. If it tests bad, replace it. If not, I'm afraid it is probably an internal problem with the compressor itself, and you will need to call a qualified tech since it will take special tools to test it.

- fridge not working following defrost


There must be a model number on the unit somewhere. Look on the door jambs on the cabinet (not door) side of the open doors.

Most modern day freezers have automatic defrost systems built in. If your does not defrost, then we need to troubleshoot why.

Post your model number, and we can proceed, assuming you or someone you know, knows how to use a multimeter and read a schematic/wiring diagram, with my help.

Sharp SJ-42-WH self-defrosting fridge. Freezer works fine, but fridge doesn't cool down - no airflow to fridge. 1. Damper working perfectly and not jambed in closed position. 2. Fan working...


I recently had exactly the same problme with this model refrigerator. I found the problem to be the defrost timer. It is located behind the panel on the back of the refrigerator where the mains cord is located, you will need to replace it with the exact same model. I am in Australia and managed to find the exact part on ebay cheaply from a local appliance parts supplier, any appliance parts supplier that deals in Sharp refrigerators should be able to help you.

You will have to defrost the refrigerator overnight again before doing this repair.

Of course there are a couple of other components that could cause this problem, you can acutally check to see if the defrost time is moving by taking note of it's current position and then checking it every thirty minutes or so. If it does not move then it could be faulty, make sure also that power is getting to the timer as well.

Refrigerator not cooling


My fridge and freezer just stopped cooling all of a sudden. I hear the compressor running and every couple of min there is a clicking noise. Is there a reset switch or something that I can do to start it working again? The lights are working but the freezer and fridge are room temp.

Flashing green power light - Black screen


I had the same problem with an AOPEN 17' lcd that was left behind at a rental property... I plugged it into my dell dimmension 4400 in place of my old analog. It worked fine the fist night, and got up and when turned it on again it had the famed green blinking power light. I switched back to the analog, and just disappointed I plugged in the AOPEN to another power source, and power came on a steady red light. I plugged it back into the puta and it came on again. I have not turned the monitor off again for fear of the blinks, and has been working great for close to a week now. Hope it helps someone else out there. Richard
