Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

EW28BS71ISA refridgerator displays power failure & last temp settings, then power cycles

When the unit is plugged in, the freezer and fridge temperatures (oF & 37F degrees) and displays "Power Failure" and "Alarm Off" icons with the sound of the fan (?) inside running for a second. This blinks on the display every 3 seconds. If you attempt to press the "Alarm off" icon on the display the "water" icon lights up for a split second and the cycle repeats. It appears that it is not maintaining power level at this point so unable to test further. The interior lights do not come on during this cycling while the door is open.

Hi,
With the problems it is presenting, I would say it's very likely.
However it may take a bit of detective work to find which board is defective.

Check a part suppliers link Here for price comparison so you have some ideas.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite bottom freezer refridgerator

I just went through this with my refridgerator and actually posted one of the questions. Here is what I found ........

In the freezer compartment behind the panel there is an evaporator fan which pulls cold air from the freezer and pushes it up into the refrridgerator compartment. If the fan is not working it is one of three things.. 1) there is so much frost in the fan area the fan blade is stopped and cannot push the cold air into the refridgerator compartment or the air channel is blocked. 2) there is no electricity going to the fan (usually tied to the door switch of the refirdgerator compartment, and 3) the motor is dead and will have to be replaced.

Solution to #1 - defrost but there is another problem in the "frost-free" part of the system which must be addressed or the frost will return and it will happen again in the future.

Solution #2 - check to see there is power to the fan. (most are 110VAC but some are 100VDC. Use a meter and check)

Solution #3 - If there is power, the motor is dead. Replace the motor. Be aware that AC and DC motors are different and replace per manufacture's specifications.

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune MDE7500AYW - Won't start - Message says "A power failure..

I had the same problem. It turned out a power transformer in the neighborhood had gone bad. I found it by checking power at the receptacles in the house and we weren't getting proper voltage throughout the house. We had enough power in the house to power lights, the TV, coffee maker etc. but not enough for the dryer. I called the power company and they came out to do a check. At first they said there was a wiring problem with the house until all the neighbors started coming over after seeing their vehicle and saying they were having problems. So maybe you aren't getting proper power to the unit.

Good luck. Hope this fixes your problem.

SOURCE: Samsug HT-SK5 fails with 'Protection' on display

Protect mode will kick in whenever a fault is detected.

You get the unit not powering up, and sometimes you hear a clicking noise, that is the protection switch that keeps shutting down the unit.

Causes that can start protect mode are:

Electrostatic harges on internal circuits.
Leave the unit unplugged for power for one hour or so, this will allow discharge.

Bad speaker wiring.
Check speaker wiring, try unplugging and plugging back, or start after removing one speaker at the time.

Internal fault.
Internal fault is the natural cause for protect mode. If all the above did not work, then the problem is a blown component or an internal fault. In this case the unit must be taken apart , tested and repaired by an experienced person.
If the unit is less than one year old, or if you want to get service, call Sony at the phone number listed on the product documentation.

Regards.

Jenairrefridgerator model jcd2292ktb, what is the temperature for freezer and refridgerator


If you want to set the temperature your Fridge/Freezer should maintain, you need to set the Freezer to between -19c and -23c, however if you will be keeping Ice-cream in this freezer then it's best to set the base temp @ -21c minimum, -23 preferable, or the ice cream may begin to break down (very slowly I might add). The Fridge needs to be set to a maximum Highest temp) of 5c, any higher and the food will not stay as fresh and bugs will be able to breed, preferable temp is approximately 3-4c.

Hi My freezer is working great however my refridgerator side seems to be a tad warm, I have tried to clean the compressor and even turn it to cooler settings , this unit is only 1 year old


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

The refrigerator and freezer are not getting cold but I can hear the motor running.


Hello there:
If the compressor is running and you can hear it than you are going to have the refrigerant recharged in the unit.
If you continue to run the unit without refrigerant you will end up with the compressor quitting and this you do not want ok?
I hope this has been very helpful for you ok?
best regards michael

Freezer coils frost up within minutes after being turned back on


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

Fridge temp will not drop to set temp


if you have had a sudden power failure or power spike, you may need to reset the fridge. This can be done by holding down the power freeze button and the fridge temp button together for about 5 seconds. The fridge display will go blank. press the buttons together again, the fridge display should return and both fridge and freezer should be reset

Refridge compartment warm not cooling


I hope the following helps.

Turn the entire control system off for at least two minutes. This will give the computer module time to reset to factory default. Turn of to desired level after two minutes. Should that not work then there is a problem with the timing relay. They relay is brand specific, meaning take the model number to the parts store for a new one.

Your compressor should be fine. You may also remove the power by unplugging the refrig.

CAUTION: Before removing the relay the power to the fridge must be OFF. Failure to have it in the off postion can cause the new relay to short which can lead to mkore problems. So UNPLUG the fridge, remove the relay, replace the relay and then plug fridge back min. Set control to desired cooling level and wait a couple hours. That should do the trick.. IF not then there is an issue with the processor module.

Freezer staying cold but fridge is getting hot


More likely than not there is a blockage of ice bettween the freezer and the refridgerator. most fridges work to get the freezer cold as a priority.Then the cold freezer air is circulated throughout the rest of the unit to keep the fridge cold. Thats why you may hear a fan running in the fridge unit while the compressor is not on. Unplug and open the doors to warm the inside. Look at the plastic piece bettween the two units and remove. See if there is ice build up and use a hair dryer to melt, dry area out and restart the unit by plugging back in or turning temp dial. Hope this helps.
