Re: Fridge dead & won't re-start, but inside light is...
I believe you refrigerator may be stuck in the defrost cycle. Open the fresh food door and look were the controls are located and there should be a small hole about the size of a pencil eraser. Put a screwdriver inside and turn the timer clockwise slowly until the refrigerator comes on. If this works replace the defrost timer, or let me know so I can help you later. In photo #12 is the defrost timer. The part number for your timer is 67001036 You can visit my site and enter the model or part number into the model and part number search feature.

Hello erintu81 - SY CF typically indicates that the refrigerator has detected a communication failure after power up. The wiring between the main control board and user interface board will need to be accurately diagnosis. Depending on the results either or will need replacing. At this point, I strongly recommend connecting a professional to move forward accurately and to properly assist with the repair(s).
There are two reasons for bad smells. 1. Long time not being used. 2. Lack of cleaning inside compartment.
Solution: Unplug fridge. Keep open fridge door. Dip a dry cloth in soap water and start cleaning each and every compartment. Keep freezer door also open. And then clean with another dry cloth. Keep both doors open for nearly 5 hrs. It will be enable fresh air to **** the smell inside fridge. After 5 hrs close the fridge and run on empty for one hour. Keep food items after one hour. Please keep all food items closed vessel. Not only it's avoid odor but also be hygienic. If you use to keep fish items in freezer, clean fridge once in a week.(Spray roo spray in the room when you keep fridge door opened. Don't spray into fridge.)Helpful.
The humidity switch does not control the humidity inside the fridge, but rather is used to control moisture that can form on the edges of the fridge and on the divider between the fridge & freezer compartments.
In areas that experience humid conditions, this is a common occurrence. The relative cold of the freezer & fridge in certain areas of the fridge case causes moist air to condense on contact. This condensation is prevented by a heater that is behind the metal case of the fridge. The moist air can't condense because the metal surface is warmer than the room air.
If you don't have a humid time of year, leave the switch set to "off", as the heater uses electricity and lowers the efficiency of the fridge and freezer - resulting in increased cost of operation. Not using the heater when it is humid will eventually cause the moisture to cause rust on the wet areas of the fridge case.
you have more than likely ruined the control board on the refrige,a dryer and refrigerator should each be on their own dedicated circuit,they use an enormous amount of current to start, and even if one is running and the other starts thats enough to trip even a 30 amp receptacle, and furthermore extension cord use on these types of appliances even a large gauge cord i.e. 12 ga. that will carry 20 amps is not even a good idea because of voltage drop,as this causes motors to draw excessive current and over heat the motors and reduce appliance efficiency too
Check the cycle timer this is usually 90% of call outs for this issue. They are usually locate inside fridge on the top by light ( some times on the lower outside back of unit). Put a flat head screw driver in and slowly turn until you hear a click and compressor should kick in. If this works you will have to replace timer or it will freeze up in several days but will keep you cooling until then. Good luck!!
Try these solutions in these order:
1. Switch off the fridge and leave the door open overnight. Switch it back on in the morning.
Explanation: The sensor inside the fridge gets frozen and cannot control the temperature properly.
2. Switch off the fridge. Unplug it. At the back of the fridge (behind the unit, not inside) there is a large grid. Clean it with a hoover thoroughly. Open the fridge. Dry the back of the fridge if wet (inside the fridge). If frosted wait for it to defrost and then dry it. Plug in the fridge. Switch the fridge back on. This one worked for me.
Explanation: The dust in the grid deprives the fridge from cooling down and the unit can't control the temperature in the fridge section.
3. Switch off the fridge. -Unplug it. Empty it. Turn it upside down. Plug it in. Switch it on for 24 hours. Switch it off. Unplug, return to normal and switch on.
Explanation: This has to do with the pressure of the gas inside the compressor. I have not tried it but this advice as given to me by a qualified electrician when I commented the (in)famous F2 problem in Liebherr fridge/freezers.
Hope it helps. Regards. Albert
