SOURCE: sleep button wont work and its disabled

Could you clarify what is the sleep button?:
- The home button on the front
- The power button on the top
- or the vibration disble button on the left

Probably the flex cable that connects the button to the motherboard is not working. These parts are cheap and easy to install. You can find the replacement connectors for all these buttons here:

SOURCE: New defrost timer on fridge keeps tripping circuit breaker


The problem is the defrost timer you just replace on your refrigerator, you will need to check the ratings on the broken defrost timer to ensure it matches the ratings on the present defrost heater on your refrigerator, beside, you will need to test the continuity on your present defrost heater to see if the voltage rating is ok, because, if it can be tripping the breaker off while it kicks into defrost mode signify that the present defrost heater is not compatible with your refrigerator, it is either it is not well wired or fixed, and if it is, then, it means the defrost timer voltage rating is low compare to the former, you will need to get exact specification as the the broken one.

Take care.

Fridge blow fuse. What can be wrong?

There could be a lot of reason but most common reason for unit tripping breaker is bad compressor .
Disconnect compressor and turn breaker back on and if breaker didn't tripped then it's definitely the compressor. If breaker still tripped then there are other issues .Check all electrical wiring because something is grounded

I am not familiar with this model BUT most fridge/freezers these days have a built-in electrical protection device [usually similar to a circuit-breaker] to protect the unit from any electrical supply surges and/or "shorts". You may find a RESET button located near the compressor housing. Press this and hopefully your problem will be rectified. Probably best to do this with the power switched OFF [although not always necessary].

My refrigerator stopped working because I left the door open for like three hours and the electricity does not go to all the fridge parts like the lighting system is off and the freezer is off every thing...

There is no sensor like you stated. Actually, when you keep open the fridge door, the cooling all will go out and hence thermostat sensor would not cut off, as required temp not reached inside the fridge.
So, the compressor would have run for long time without cut off. Due to this the overload protector trips the compressor. Remove power for 4 to 6 hrs. And then restart the fridge. But make sure you close the fridge door. Thanks.

Hi, my fridge freezer keeps making the electric trip out. help!!!


Try this:
Turn your thermostat as warm as it will go, you are trying to isolate the compressor and keep it from turning on. If your fridge has an "off" position, then turn it off. Reset breaker, plug refrigerator back into the outlet. If the fridge trips while "off", then you are likely looking at a damaged cord / wiring.

If the breaker doesn't trip, unplug the fridge, and move the thermostat to the warmest position possible. Plug fridge back in, If the breaker holds, then you are on right track. Slowly move the thermostat to a cooler setting. You want to just reach the point where the compressor tries to start. If breaker holds here, then you are in good shape so far. It indicates a problem with the defrost heater (if equipped), or the ice maker (if equipped). If the breaker trips as soon as the compressor tries to start, your compressor may be damaged (bad and expensive).

Refrigerator won't restart after power outage.

Check all of your breakers first (if you have light, it's getting power) but if you had low AC line voltage for any length of time, the compressor may be fried.
If that proves to be the case, call your electric utility and ask them about their liability; if they have allowed a 'brown-out' to persist, it is their fault. This happened to us on a fairly new fridge and they coughed up $350 for the repair.

About 1:00 am this morning our fridge tripped the circuit breaker, it ha never done this before. I reset the breaker and it tripped 5 mins later. I left it unplugged for the rest of the night. I plugged it...

It sounds to me, either you have a bad circuit breaker (the breaker itself); or you have a bad motor or compressor in the fridge. If possible try plugging the fridge into a different outlet. (If you use an extension cord to do this, make sure it is a thick gauge, in order to not cause an increase in amps through the smaller cord.) This should tell you rather quickly if the problem is with the breaker or the fridge. If it does turn out to be the fridge, you will probably find it is cheaper to replace a fan rather than the fridge, but the compressor (including installation) would probably cost more than a new fridge. (depending on how "fancy" it is)
Hope this helps

Bosch KIM29473GB refrigerator lights on but no refridgeration

it sound more like the compressor is faulty siezed up
if so it will try to work then trip on the compressor overheat it will rest for about three to five minutes then try again
if this is happening it almost certainly eliminates the stat if the stat was faulty the compressor would not try to start compressor expensive to replace and time consuming would take about two hours
Good luck
