Neff fridge/freezer has stopped cooling

pull the unit from the wall, remove the bottom back panel , see if the small fan is working ,if the fan is , there's probally alot of dust back there,unplug the fridg. and vacuum the area real good,use a flash light to make sure you get it all, if the fan is not working and the compressor is running the fan is the problem ,the fan keeps the compressor and coils cool so the freon can cool down so the unit works like it should,if the freon is hot ,the air the fridg.will be blowing will be hot. this should fix your problem, and YES its worth fixing.alittle p.m.saves alot of $$$$$$$$$

Unfortunately it probably isn't worth repairing. If you feel confident undo it and check all cables/connectors inside are secure. Disconnect and reconnect the battery
Spares will cost more than the unit is worth. Is it still under warranty?

Refrigerator is 18 years old and just stopped cooling. Nothing working except for the light. Worth fixing?

No, it isn't worth fixing. The parts will probably cost as much as a new refrigerator (or at least a significant fraction (50%+) of that cost). In addition a newer refrigerator will be more energy efficient and thus you will gain the money back in a few years of electric bills.

I hope this helps.

Not cooling; relay clicks; compressor runs for 5 sec then stops.

Is the compressor actually starting or is it humming? If it is humming, then it is probably your capacitor, which would end up costing about $20 for the part, much cheaper than a new refrigerator. I feel that this is most likely your problem. If the compressor has a starting relay, this could also not being operating correctly. If you carefully disconnect the capacitor, you can check the mfd rating with a multimeter. You can also check the starting relay (if applicable) with the multimeter set to measure continuity. Hope this helps. BTW... A new starting relay, called a CCR, or Current Coil Relay, will probably run you about the same, $20.

Frigidiare upright freezer has just stopped cooling

I was hoping it would be something like a cracked door seal, or a faulty thermostat, etc., but after reading the rest of your info, I've concluded the likely cause is a slow leak in the refridgerant line(s). I've seen many of these fairly new upright freezers with this problem.

Finding the leak is easy for a service tech to find, but the cost of the service tech isn't cheap and unfortunately, the repair cost will probably exceed the cost of a new freezer, but you can try to call a repair tech and see if they can give you a rough estimate over the phone or if they think it's worth fixing, etc.

My advice is to replace it. The cost of food you've lost has probably exceeded the price of a new freezer - and you've had this happen twice now. These days it seems that some appliances are being designed and built as "throw aways" due to the high repair cost.

Wished I had some better news for you, but unless you've got all the specialty tools; (charging gauges, vaccum pump, Freon, etc.) needed to do the repair yourself, along with the technical knowledge, it's likely not worth having the repair service contracted. Best Regards.

MY panasonic NN-A554WBBTQ Microwaze stopped working. I took it to the local Panasonic Repair outlet an d I was told it's something called a magnetron that is damaged and that the repair cost would be too...

I would not recommend replacing it yourself. It requires special tools, safety protocol, safety inspection and leakage certification when repairs are complete. These are the things that professional servicers are trained hours for.

Broken lcd screen

honestly it would probably cost more than the mp3 player is worth. After adding in shipping and handling, not to mention repair costs. It's probably worth it more to you to take and buy a new player. However search google there is always plenty of people out there that own small hobby shops and electronic repair stores. See what their prices are before going out to buy a new replacement.

Screen is broken, is it worth fixing

It is not worth repairing, the panel would cost as much as a new tv. have it looked at though maybe your warranty tech will slide it through. Probably not but its worth a look.
