Turn thermostat all the way to the left to turn it off. restore power and see if it stays on and inside fan is running. Then turn thermostat to rite to turn on compressor. If the power trips when turning thermostat back on, the compressor may be bad. :(

You need to see if the refrigerator is plugged in properly. Also check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker. See if there is any damage to the electrical cord and check the outlet voltage. Troubleshoot the problem and if you do not find any of the above reasons as the cause of refrigerator not working, call the repairman.

Check for the temperature control. If it is off, turn it on. If not, then you need to check the compressor for overheating. You need to unplug the refrigerator and clean the condenser coils. If the compressor is bad, then you need to call the repair man.
Also, You need to check the temperature settings and see if there is enough air flow in the refrigerator and freezer. You need to check for air flow restrictions in the vents and clean the compressor coils. The door seals, door switch, defrost heater and timer has to be checked. Also clean the clogged drain tube and refrigerant leak.

Take care.

SOURCE: In a True 3-door self contained pizza table,

Professionals they use a special steel wire spring which they insert in the drain tube and it can be clean perfectly and very easy. This steel wire spring is the same that the electricians use to pass the cables through the conduit pipes and it can be fint at electricians shop or DIY. At DIY they have also a similar one specialy for drains. Also you can use a steel wire rod but the problem is very difficaul to pass from curves. If the drain have ice then you can do again as professionals do, use a hair dryer to the are around drain tube and this will melt all ice.

There is a constant buzzing noise coming from the lower freezer ice maker. It is producing very few ice cubes. The control bar is down and in proper position to make ice.

Fridge keeps beeping or buzzing: The following is for Frigidaire models but others can be addressed similarly.

Several Frigidaire refrigerator models have an electronic control panel on the freezer door the owner can use to adjust the internal temperature, dispense ice and water and receive notification about issues such as the need to replace a water filter. The refrigerators also emit a beep for various actions and as an occasional alarm. Determining what causes the beeps necessitates some troubleshooting.
Temperature Controls ·A Frigidaire refrigerator's display panel blinks when the control panel is touched to set temperature controls. After pressing "Freezer Temp" or "Refrigerator Temp" on the keypad, press the arrow buttons within five seconds to increase or decrease the desired temperature. If you do not press the arrow buttons within five seconds after pressing "Freezer Temp" or "Refrigerator Temp" on the keypad, the refrigerator beeps to indicate the current setting will stay in place.

Door Open ·When you leave the refrigerator or freezer door open, the refrigerator beeps. Also, the "Door Ajar" indicator illuminates on the appliance's display panel. Shutting the door and pressing "Alarm Reset" stops the beeping and turns off the "Door Ajar" indicator light.
·The Frigidaire refrigerator has a control lock feature that prevents use of its control panel or dispensers when the unit is locked. When the control lock is active, a beep sounds when a keypad or dispenser is pressed. Release the control lock by pressing the "Control Lock" icon for three seconds. A beep will sound, and the icon's light will go out.
Power Reset ·A power reset is occasionally necessary if the Frigidaire refrigerator's control panel does not work normally or a reset function on the keypad does not work. A power reset involves disconnecting power to the refrigerator by unplugging its power cord from the electrical outlet, waiting 30 seconds and plugging the power cord back into the electrical outlet. When the control panel resets, a beep sounds. If the refrigerator beeps even after a power reset and the beeps' source is not known, contact Frigidaire.

I have two Bosch fridges. I just bought this house and there is nothing in either fridge. Worked day we took possession of home, but both stopped working. They have power just won't cool.

Bosch is a high end manufacturer of appliances. Occasionally things can go wrong, such as fluctuations in temperature. Bosch's policy is to charge for calls to customer service advice, even when the appliance is still under warranty, so it's worth trying these troubleshooting steps before making the call. Bosch refrigerators also have an appliance self-test which you can run.
    • 1 Check that the plug is inserted into the household power outlet at the wall. If there's no text displayed on the display panel, it is because there is no power to the fridge.
    • 2 Make sure that the door hasn't been left open if the warning signal sounds. The warning signal means the temperature is rising, and frozen food can be at risk. Visually inspect that the ventilation openings aren't covered by household objects, debris or dirt. Press the "Alarm Off" button to switch off the alarm.
  • 3 Ensure that the temperature controls are set correctly if the fridge or freezer compartments get too cold.
  • 4 Check that the water supply is on if the ice-maker isn't producing ice. Test the water supply by using the water dispenser on the door. If "IWD Off" is displayed on the panel, the ice and water are supplies are off and need to be turned on again.
  • 5 Press the "Condensation Heating" switch near the ice dispenser and water outlet on the door if condensation forms on the outside of the refrigerator. If the environment around the refrigerator is too humid, the appliance can compensate for that.
  • 6 Run the self-test program to identify major faults. Switch the refrigerator off and wait five minutes. Switch the refrigerator on again. Press the "Select" and "Options" buttons at the same time for five seconds. The self-test will commence. Keep an eye on the display. "E" indicates a fault which needs reporting to customer service. The number in the US is 1-800-944-2904.

    Hi My Kelvinator Beverage Cooler fridge has packed up due to power surge. If possible please could you email me a quotation as i need to purchase another one. Description: 1 door which is glass and its...


    The price depends on the model and on the internal volume. Here a UK seller: Commercial Beverage Coolers & Commercial Bottle Coolers. Here a SA distributor of beverage coolers. The choice includes Kelvinator.

    About the fault. If the problem happened after a power surge it is often possible to repair the cooler replacing the starter relay mounted on top of the compressor. The part is not expensive. Call the Kelvinator number listed on the owner manual to know more about the possible repair or to purchase the part.

    I opened my fridge to get something out, shut the door and EVERYTHING WENT OUT??? No lights, no nothing??? I tripped the breaker and checked the cord etc... Nothing????

    Make sure your getting power at the outlet by pluging in somthing like a hair dryer. If your getting power at your outlet then you probably have a controlboard problem.

    If you don't have power then first look for GFI RESET in the kitchen. or fuse box.

    It sounds like you need to install a drain heater. Sometimes these are available as a kit from a parts dealer, and sometimes you can just take a piece of bare solid copper or aluminium wire and put it a little ways down the drain, then wrap the other end around the defrost heater, so that when the fridge goes into self defrost, it keeps the drain warm so it does not freeze. The better way to do this repair though is to see if a drain heater is available for you model as a direct fit part. The other way is only to be used as a last resort. Good Luck!
