Overload protection/surge protection. Makes sense so gotta live with it. Unless you can stop the surging. Tell you power company about it and they will help you

My unit wont get cold, had power outage and think it needs to be reset. How do u reset compressor or unit?


See this video for the "reset" function of some refrigerators:

Does My Refrigerator Have Reset Button

How Do Reset My Frigidaire Refrigerator


Said this, I don't mean to "panic" you but if you can't find this "restet" function, your refrigerator suffered a surge effect and might have some electronic cricuir damaged; in best case, some internal security fuse, typical as result of power outage, when power returns.
If you can't find that "reset" call repair service.
By the way, get a surge protector for your refrigerator as soon as possible. See some typica protectors at Amazon, but you can buy one at your local home depot or outlet store.

My Sony KF60XBR800 keeps shutting off while also triggering the surge prootector. What is causing this and is it do it yourself fixable?


surge protectors only work in one direction--from the power supply to the machine and are there to dampen a sudden over voltage surge in power supply-- lighting strike or power surge after grid failure or outage
I am thinking that the unit you keep switching on is an earth leakage unit or circuit breaker that is in the system to prevent electrical shocks from bad insulation or low performing components
if that is the case you have a potential short in the unit and should have the machine checked out at an appliance shop

To whom it may concern,

You're likely either experiencing overheating or power cycling.
Put the receiver into a well circulated area, and let it cool down. If this does not alleviate your problem you will need a replacement box. Be sure to set up insurance for your account before you ask for a new box to be sent.

Wall ac in off position plug in surge protector blows instantly


It may be possible the it has fried the surge protected internally causing it to short out or blow when plugging in. I would try using another surge protected if you have one or if possible replace the cord going to the unit with a new one and see what happens. Also possible that the outlet your using went bad during the storm as well. Don't know 100% but should be a couple tips to help get you going.
