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. ( if in series with the windings)
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

SOURCE: Fridge stopping and not starting unless i will switch power supply off then on again

when was the last time you pulled the front grill at the bottom and cleaned it out? or had it serviced, most times they come in with a air compressor and blow the coils free and everything is back to normal, I clean mine twice a year, have a special 20 dollar tool bought from parts store.

I have a 17k generac generator when it auto comes on the motor runs rough but when manually turned on it will run fine.

Could be the load you have on it is to much for when it does it it self .when you do it do you turn power off then start it and then putt the power back on .then it would run easy every time .could be your back up battery for it is to small .is it on a transfer switch like it should be when it starts it self .

I unplugged my fridge to plug it into a power strip (so I could also plug my microwave into that plug), and when I turned it on again it's not making noise. Did I hurt the fridge?

should not have
I would suspect that the power strip reset overload button popped or there is a problem in the power supply
unless the fridge did not need the compressor running as it was cold enough and the compressor had stopped as per the cycle

I have two Bosch fridges. I just bought this house and there is nothing in either fridge. Worked day we took possession of home, but both stopped working. They have power just won't cool.

Bosch is a high end manufacturer of appliances. Occasionally things can go wrong, such as fluctuations in temperature. Bosch's policy is to charge for calls to customer service advice, even when the appliance is still under warranty, so it's worth trying these troubleshooting steps before making the call. Bosch refrigerators also have an appliance self-test which you can run.
    • 1 Check that the plug is inserted into the household power outlet at the wall. If there's no text displayed on the display panel, it is because there is no power to the fridge.
    • 2 Make sure that the door hasn't been left open if the warning signal sounds. The warning signal means the temperature is rising, and frozen food can be at risk. Visually inspect that the ventilation openings aren't covered by household objects, debris or dirt. Press the "Alarm Off" button to switch off the alarm.
  • 3 Ensure that the temperature controls are set correctly if the fridge or freezer compartments get too cold.
  • 4 Check that the water supply is on if the ice-maker isn't producing ice. Test the water supply by using the water dispenser on the door. If "IWD Off" is displayed on the panel, the ice and water are supplies are off and need to be turned on again.
  • 5 Press the "Condensation Heating" switch near the ice dispenser and water outlet on the door if condensation forms on the outside of the refrigerator. If the environment around the refrigerator is too humid, the appliance can compensate for that.
  • 6 Run the self-test program to identify major faults. Switch the refrigerator off and wait five minutes. Switch the refrigerator on again. Press the "Select" and "Options" buttons at the same time for five seconds. The self-test will commence. Keep an eye on the display. "E" indicates a fault which needs reporting to customer service. The number in the US is 1-800-944-2904.

    My samsung refrigerator goes off everytime the electricity flickers, even for a flash or less than a second. It goes off and it does not comebacks on for as much as 24 hrs. Sansumg's technitions says...

    The fridge can cut off if there is a power flickering or variation as the relay will be energised to trip off. Once the fridge is off the self timer - 5 minutes- will be active to allow the gas/oil to come back to the compressor as the flickering would have produced an irregular pumping.
    After about 5 minutes the processor will energise the relay to contact and start.
    Now the main issue is the voltage in your household. if the voltage is low then the fridge will not start again as it will click and shut off. So make sure that there is sufficient voltage in the mains supply. Also the plug point where the fridge is connected must deliver good voltage/current as the wiring must be good to carry the load . If not the fridge will trip off whenever there is a power flicker.
    Finall if the power is good then the fridge mut be checked as it cannot be off for 24 hours. register you complaint for warranty service.
    If power is irregular use an auto- voltage stabiliser .

    Hi - took it off for 36 hrs - never had an issue - oyster submariner not moving now ... thanks for your help

    This is a mechanical auto-wind watch. It self winds when worn. But if taken off for a couple of days it will have stopped and won't start running again unless it is wound.

    Put it on and wear it for a few minutes. This will wind it enough to start it running again. Then set the time and wear it and you'll be fine.

    Hope this helps.
