The compressor should start soon after the refrigerator is plugged in. (Make sure the control knob inside or the control panel outside is set for a low temperature.) You may not notice any cooling for a couple of hours and it could take 12 to 24 hours for food in the freezer to freeze solid and for ice cubes to be made.

Cooling fan inop 1995 mustang gt 5.o

you can check the cooling fan by disconnecting the plug at the motor and run jumper wires from the battery directly to the fan motor it should run if its working if it doesn`t run then the cooling fan motor needs replacing. if it does run then check the plug for a bad connection. other things can cause this like the cooling fan relay, the coolant sensor that sends a signal for the computer to turn on the cooling fan by sending a signal to the relay.

Brand new mini fridge was on it's side before being set up. Plugged in too soon. Now it won't start cooling. Are we out of luck?

It could be that liquid coolant got into the low-pressure part of the cooling system when it was on its side, and is preventing the expansion valve from doing its job converting high-pressure liquid coolant to gas. My recommendation is to unplug it, wait the 24 hours, and plug it back in. Excess fluid should have drained to the bottom of the cooling system by then, and normal cooling can begin.

1 Answer changed my motherboard and no longer have a 3 pin connection for the case fan on the motherboard. I know that + goes to yellow and - goes to black but where does the sensor wire go?

An option for you is to just purchase a cheap adapter to plug your case fan into a unused power supply plug, such as one that plugs into a hard drive or optical drive.

GE Monogram side by side not cooling

I had the same problem. GE Man said that since the unit had been allowed to warm so much, we needed to empty it, unplug it, and totally leave it alone for 24 hours for any excess water to drain out. Then, we needed to plug it in and let it run with NO ITEMS INSIDE AND NO OPENING OF THE DOORS AT ALL for 48 hours. After that, we started using it again and it was Perfect!! I thought it was a lost cause, so this worked and didn't cost me a dime!!

Dometic NDR 1292 does not cool

Check to see if your boiler tube is hot. If it is , your cooling unit is shot. Do not plug your circuit board into 110 volt power that will destroy it. To test your heating elements you need to do an ohms reading on the elements. But I can tell you from experience if your boiler tube/ this is the 3-4" diameter sheet metal tube going up the back of the refer/ is hot the cooling unit is no good. If you would like to discuss your diagnostics give me a call.

Neither freezer or refrig will not cool.

The relay switch is plugged into the compressor and you disconnect the OLD relay switch from that and unplug ( I think it was ) 2 smaller plugs from the OLD relay switch and then replug those 2 smaller plug into the NEW relay switch and then plug the NEW relay switch back into the compressor. I hope I made sense.
