Testing the Thermostat for Electrical Problems Again using the wiring diagrams, determine which of the wires coming from the thermostat supply the power to the compressor motor's start relay switch. To check the thermostat, you will need to take a continuity reading through the thermostat's main contacts. To do this, set the function on your DMM to the R X 1 function, insert the test probes into the holes on the harness plug associated with those wires and rotate the knob on the thermostat through its full range. In the thermostat's "OFF" position, the meter's LCD should display an "O.L." and then, as you rotate the knob clockwise, the LCD should display a "0.000" if the thermostat is functioning properly, electrically. If you get a "0.000" reading even in the "OFF" position, the thermostats internal contacts are stuck in the closed position, and you need to replace the thermostat.
Defective Temperature Sensing Tube If the thermostatic control checks out electrically, the problem lies with its temperature sensing tube or bulb. This tube contains a gas which condenses as it get cold. As the gas volume decreases, the spring loaded contacts open, shutting the compressor off. There is no way to recharge the sensing tube once it has lost its charge, so you will have to replace the complete thermostat control.

I have a fisher & paykel active smart fridge the fridge part freezes everything and wont stop beeping when door open


Your fridge is telling you there is a fault, i'd say one of the 2 fans are not working. If everything is freezing in the bottom of the food compartment then the upper fan is faulty. You have to remove the shelves & remove the rear panel, the fan is in the shute at the bottom, remove, repair the broken wire or replace. Make sure unit is unpluged.

Fridge freezing up


Check the fridge sensor. On my Hoover HNMF2805AL80 f/f, first I replaced control module - still freezing.
Have just replaced cheap fridge temperature sensor. Part No. 97061619. Trouble is you have to cut into insulation at back of fridge to replace. I just plugged in sensor & placed inside fridge at back at the bottom - so far so good, only lettuce freezing now, everything else v. cold but not frozen. :)

My fridge in my fridge freezer keeps freezing everything in it.


If the fridge side is frozen you have a door seal issue.
If the freezer side is frozen you have a defrost component issue.
Your post was not clear as to which side is frozen.

Freezing eggs in fridge area and freezing produce in crisper


HI,

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

thanks,

Samsung refrigerator freezer not freezing


-2 although below freezing temperature, is not really enough to keep food really frozen. I am presuming we are talking in Celcuis. You need to set the freezer to a lower setpoint.
