Fridge not starting? CLICKING? FIRST ALWAYSCHECK FORpower at the outlet,checkfor 120 volts. I think God os good that's why I give free advice?

MAY HAVE A BAD START RELAY OR CAPACITOR ON THE COMPRESSOR , CAN BUY A INEXSPENSIVE 3 IN 1 HARDSTART KIT AND BY PASS THEM , NOT THAT HARD TO DO, COMES WITH INSTRUCTIONS> BY THE WAY DO U HEAR ANY CLICKING SOUNDS FROM COMPRESSOR? BUT U MAY ALSO WANT TO CHECK UR COLD CONTROL THERMOSTAT IF IT GOES BAD U MAY GET A NON START ALSO HAVE IT CHECKED FOR PROPER VOLTAGE AND OHMS RESISTANCE WHEN IN THE ON POSITION
A BAD DEFROST TIMER CAN SHUT DOWN COMPRESSOR HAVE IT CHECKED WITH MULTI METER.

to check the defrost timer, u can get by and test manually by placing a small screw driver into the tiny slot or hole underneath the timer and turn slowly clockwise till u hear 1 click. this will engage ur defrost cycle in about 15 minutes u should be able to come back and feel the heat in freezer as it melts the ice providing ur terminator is not bad?
Another way to test it is with a multi meter. Remove timer it from fridge and you will see 4 prongs numbered 2,1,4,3 in that order. Place ur meter prong on prong 1 & 3 (if your fridge has a capacitor wired in series with the windings, then u check for micro fares rather than OHMS) If u cannot confirm this test, still try the next.
Take ur meter prong and connect to prong 1 & 4, it should read resistance or ohms ( closed) now remove prongs and place on prong 1 & 2, this should now read infinity or open (no ohms) now take a small screwdriver place it in the tiny hole or slot under the timer. Turn it clockwise slowly till u hear 1 click. Now ur 1& 2 should read closed ( showing ohms or resistance) now place meter prongs on 1 & 4 and you it should now show open ( or no resistance - no ohms) this is how u know ur timer is good, Remember when testing for ohms ADJUST meter to use a high ohms rating in the thousands as the resistance is very high in OHMS. And adjusting to low ohms rating may give a false reading or not show the proper resistance..


AT TIMES YOU MAY HEAR THE COMPRESSOR CLICK OFF AND ON OVER AND OVER. Signs of a bad start relay or capacitor. Check with an OHMS meter for continuity (ohms) and voltage, capacitor can be checked for Microfares.
To check ur compressor with multi meter:
Disconnect and remove the relay and capacitor from compressor, somes located next to compressor in a casing.

You wills see 3 prongs coming out of compressor. 1 goes to ur start winding, 1 goes to ur run winding and the center goes to ur ground or COM

Place ur meter connector or prong on the start prong and the other on the ground (center prong) take note of the reading in OHMS for example 5 ohms.
Next place meter prong on run prong and the center ground prong agin. Take note of the reading in OHMS. Example 4 ohms

Next place meter prong on the start prong and the other on the run prong, now take note of the reading example 9 ohms. Now match the total of this ohms test with the total of ur two separate test. 9 ohms, if they match ur ok give or take 5 percent plus or minus. One more test to make to test of there is a short in compressor attach meter prong to ground prong and rub the other end of meter prong to metal ( scrape the metal clean of paint and test on metal surface not painted surface. If it shows continuity or ohms , u have a short in ur compressor. It should show infinity
God is so good: so this is why I give free advice so please thank him not me.

SOURCE: Sabbath Setting

I just bought the SamsungRF267AB bottom freezer refrigerator.  Amoung the features that must be disabled for shabbos are the lights, motor cuttoff and inside panel indicators.  On most refrigerators there is a swich that you can tape in the depressed mode that will trick the unit into thinking the door is still closed.  With this unit it's magnetic.  you need to place a magnet on the top of the door frame to make the refigerator think the door is still closed.  I hope this helps.

Model EW23CS65GS. What does 5b error code indicate?


Hello Dwaine, thank you for your inquiry!
I understand that your Electrolux refrigerator is displaying an error code of 5b and you would like to know if this is a main board failure. I am not showing 5b as a valid error code; however, there is an error code of Sb. This means Sabbath mode and you can turn it off by pressing "-" on the freezer temp side and "+" on the fridge temp side. This should turn off the Sabbath mode.
I have also included a link to the manual for the refrigerator EW23CS65GS. On page 13 you will see Sabbath mode feature and the instructions on how to disable it. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

My frigidaire gallery refrigerator model number DGUS2645LF3 is showing an error code "5b" and nothing inside works.


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You are in the Sabbath Mode.

The Sabbath Mode is a feature that disables portions of the refrigerator and its controls in accordance with observance of the weekly Sabbath and religious holidays within the Orthodox Jewish community.
Sabbath Mode is turned ON and OFF by pressing and holding "?" on freezer temp and "?" on refrigerator temp for five seconds. The display shows "Sb" while in Sabbath mode.
In the Sabbath Mode, the High Temp alarm is active for health reasons. If a high temperature alarm is activated during this time, for example due to a door left ajar, the alarm will sound intermittently for about 10 minutes. The alarm will then silence on its own and a red high temperature icon will display. The high temp icon will continue to display, even if the door is closed, until the Sabbath mode is exited and the icon reset. The refrigerator will function normally once the door is closed, without any violation of the Sabbath/Holidays.
If this does not solve the problem you have a bad control board.

Inside lights of KitchenAid KSF26C4XYY not illuminate


I bet your fridge was put into Sabbath Mode.

Sabbath Mode is designed for those whose religious observances
require turning off the lights and dispensers.
In Sabbath Mode, the temperature set points remain unchanged,
but the interior and dispenser lights turn off, all sounds and alarms
are disabled, the dispenser display screen backlight turns off, and
the dispenser levers are disabled


To turn on Sabbath Mode, press and hold LIGHT and
OPTIONS at the same time for 3 seconds. When the feature
turns on, "Sabbath Mode" will appear on the dispenser
display.
To turn off Sabbath Mode, press and hold LIGHT and
OPTIONS at the same time for 3 seconds again.

My maytag gemini oven has been stuck in sabbath mode for months and holding the clock button does not help. It does this everytime we lose power and it stays off for months and will turn on when ever it...


Hello,

This is from the Maytag website it explains how to cancel the sabbath mode;

To cancel the Sabbath Mode:
Press the Clock pad for three seconds.
Or
After 72 hours, the Sabbath Mode will end.
  • "SAb" will flash for five seconds.
  • The time of day will return to the display.
NOTES:
  • Sabbath Mode can be turned on at any time with or without the oven on.
  • Sabbath Mode cannot be turned on if the keypads are locked out or when the door is locked.
  • Most prompts and messages and all beeps are deactivated when Sabbath Mode is active.
  • If the oven is baking when Sabbath Mode is set, the Bake icon will go out at the end of the baking cycle. There will be no audible beeps.
  • If the oven light is desired while in Sabbath Mode, it must be turned on before the Sabbath Mode is started.
  • When the Sabbath Mode is started, the temperature display will immediately show the set temperature, rather than the actual oven cavity temperature. No preheat beep will sound.
  • The self-clean cycle and automatic door lock do not operate during the Sabbath Mode.
  • Pressing the Cancel pad will cancel a Bake cycle, however the control will stay in the Sabbath Mode.
  • If power fails, the oven will power up in Sabbath Mode with 72 hours remaining and no cycle active.


I hope this helps to return it to normal mode,
GENE

Have a Electrolux refrig. french doors and bottom mount. model ei23bc56iso Its shut off. The display in front at the dispencer says OFF at frezzer side and OFF at refrig side. No other displays or error ...


  1. Bottom Mount Refrigerator Ice Maker. When the bottom mount refrigerator is placed in Sabbath mode the ice maker will be automatically disabled. Please be aware however, that although you have entered the Sabbath mode, the icemaker will complete the cycle it had already initiated. The ice cube compartment will remain cold, and new ice cubes can then be made manually in the freezer section (using a standard ice cube tray) as needed for that Sabbath/Holiday.

  2. Sabbath Mode and the Perfect Temp Drawer (if equipped). The Perfect Temperature Drawer should be turned off for the Sabbath/Holidays. Before putting the refrigerator into the Sabbath mode, turn the Perfect Temp Drawer off by pressing the drawer on / off button. The display will show "OFF" and the drawer will turn off. Then enter the Sabbath mode function on the main refrigerator display. The drawer display will now not illuminate and the drawer will remain off until Sabbath mode is exited and the drawer is turned back on. The drawer can still be used as a non temperature controlled drawer in this mode.
  3. Press the display button few seconds and recheck.
---------- Check out thanks.
