Leaving it unplugged for 2 weeks should not have caused any problems. The fridge may have been on a defrost cycle. As the unit is unlikely to have had any frost, it should have started refrigerating about 15 to 25 minutes after plugging it in.

My sa200 will not turn back on


Here's some tricks I would try...
1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your display on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.
Good luck.

Hello Jennifer

Here is my step by step instructions to follow.

1. Look inside your refrigerator and locate the temperature control switch. This is usually situated around the middle of the refrigerator's back panel. Some switches have a wheel mechanism, whereas others use digital displays.
2. Turn the temperature control wheel down to zero or switch to "Off" if you have a digital display.
3. Move your refrigerator away from the wall. Refrigerators are extremely heavy, so enlist the help of another person, if possible.
4. Unplug the refrigerator cord from the wall outlet. Leave unplugged for around two or three minutes.
5. Attach the power supply back to the wall outlet and position the refrigerator back against the wall. Your refrigerator temperature is now reset. Switch the temperature control back to "On" and adjust the temperature to the level required.
6. Open the ice making area of your refrigerator if it is producing watery ice cubes or an inconsistent water supply.
7. Locate the water filter status light inside the ice maker. This is usually a small rectangular light situated at the side of the ice maker.
8. Push the switch next to the status light seven or eight times in quick succession. This will reset your ice maker.
9. Check the status light. This should turn from red to green once the switch has been pressed several times. The green color indicates the ice maker has been reset.
Remember if you FRIDGE is on warranty you just send it first to the manufacturer.

Refrigerator will not cool


i think how frustrated you are about your equipement but sometimes we have to be very specific in our question in order to get an appropriate answer.

For your question , it doesn't cool at all? there is some light on the refrigerator? if no check power at outlet, check power cord and fuse.
it yes, move your refrigerator 1 foot away from the wall, after to unplug for about 15 mins and plug back .
if it doesn't work and the compressor doesn't run , then check for relay, and the compressor. If it run, that mean that mean , after to try the solutions above and they don't work , that mean the filer is partially durty and , in that situation , if you are a technician , you have to recover the freon, remove the filter , replace it by a new one.after charge the appropriate weight of freon back.

Kennmore model 253


Unplug the unit, open the freezer door and look through the vents at the bottom of the back wall. With enough light you should see the alluminum coil through the vents. If there is ice/frost in the vents your coils are frozen up. Remove the cover on the inside back wall of the freezer you may need to remove the ice maker as well if you have one it just plugs into the back wall there is also a plug behind the cover to the back upper left corner. Once the cove is out of the way use a hair dryer to defrost the coils or leave the unit unpluged for a while. After all the ice is gone reinstall the cover and turn the unit on it will probably work for 3-10 days and then the process must be repaeted again. I replaced the defrost thermostat on mine 2 weeks ago and all is good so far. The defrost thermostat is a little round device that snaps onto the small copper line in the upper right corner behind back cover it has 2 blue wires and cost's about $20.

Hope this helps

Controls not working in GE Bottom w/french doors.


I have the exact same problem with mine.  I was away for 3 months, left it running. Came back and no display.  Unplugged it & restarted it and it worked for a little while and went out again. 

         Did you ever get an answer?             I'm wondering about corrosion on the door switch from lack of use, as the display is only supposed to be on when a door is open.  Yours may have been a loose connector from moving it???
