SOURCE: fridge won't quit running and get cold

2 common problems that unit has. 1 is the cold controls go bad and will cause the unit to either run or not run. 2 the freezer drain gets blocked up very easy and when the freezer defrost the water has noplace to go but the freezer bottom and could block the air passages so the cold air will not satisfy the control. so check the freezer bottom by removing the plastic peice on the bottom there are 3 plastic plugs in the front that secure it and some phillips screw in the middle. you can just lift it to check for ice. if there is none replace the cold control. good luck

Hello warmfridge
happy to assist you,

You said,
We've had this wine fridge for about 3 years now, and all of a sudden it stopped getting cold. We still hear the fan turn on and all appears to be running smoothly but it remains room temperature inside. Does anyone know how to fix this? I have no experience, but would like to try rather than buy a new one. thanks!

1. You may need to add freon.
2. It may have a faulty thermostat.

It seems you need hands on service!

SOURCE: fan is running, fridge and freezer not cold

I have a Westinghouse side by side refrig/freezer that the compressor will run but will not cool or freeze. Do you have any suggestions?

SOURCE: freezer works, fridge doesn't cool

Probably excessive ice in the condensor. Likely defrost thermostat or defrost heater problem.

What happens is excessive ice keeps airflow from the refrigerator part of the unit.

SOURCE: Eaton Viking mini fridge not getting cold

yes. you certainly need to get a technitian out there. it seems that you are having a shortage of gas. if you have a gas shortage, then there must deffinitly be a gas leak somewhere.did you recently try to clean the plate that you mentioned with something shap? if so then you might have punctured it and that is where your gas leak might be. you do get special epoxies that you can do a quick fix, but you will still have to send it to a repair shop to regas and evacuate the unit. good luck

Mini fridge not getting cold,freezer only gets cold?

If it's less then a year old you have a warranty, if it's older you are better off replacing the unit as direct parts are not available and subs would cost more that the unit.

My Mini fridge Doesn't Get Cold, it's running, I've tried unplugging it for a day and then plugging it back in , still not getting cold..Looked at back and everything looks fine..Except..T

Replace the fridge compressor with another one, try a Google search and maybe you'll find result's for your specific fridge. If all else fails, then ring up your fridge manufacturer and talk to them about your fridge, and if you still have warranty and you complain hard enough, they might just send in a new compressor.

Galaxy mini fridge stopped working

The thermostat, which is also an ON_OFF switch has failed (@ 99% probability).

No, the little fridge doesn't have a pressure switch to turn the compressor off when freon is low. And no, auto freon is the wrong kind and it wont work in the little fridge. The freon that your little fridge uses is the stuff that all the fuss has been about (with the ozone layer), so it is not sold to appliance owners but only to licensed techs.

If this is helpful I hope you'll take a sec to rate me. Thanks!

I have a Frigidaire FRC150FF fridge, the fridge light comes on but the fridge is warm. The frezzer compartment is working fine

How old is the fridge? Can you hear it running?
It could me many things. Could be anything from a dead compressor to a coolant leak.

Did someone change thermostat setting, maybe during a cleaning? There's a knob in the refrigerator section somewhere; see if it's turned to "Off" or to a less-than-cold setting.

If you hear the motor running, but it doesn't get cold, it probably doesn't have any refrigerant to compress. That could be recharged, but modern refrigerators are pretty tight, so that would also indicate a leak. With a leak, it will need recharging again sometime later.

Refer door left open overnite. can hear it running but fridge and freezer are not cold.and it has run all day. What can I do? .

the fan that blows air from freezer to fridge is probably frozen with ice from all the moist air when door was left open turn off unit and let defrost will see screws where fan is located to help fan defrost us hair drier to free fan when free enough to turn freely turn on unit and push door switches or close door and listen for fan to go on if goes on turn off unit and and continue to defrost till fan and duct [airway ]is clear of ice than turn on and let run -if fan doesnt go on have tested may have burnt out from trying to run while frozen up repair or replace fan and recheck unit good luck

Sanyo mini refridgerator won't get cold

This sounds to me like your fridge might be in defrost mode. There should be a switch up toward the top of the fridge near the cold setting. It's not always very visible, but feel around for a little round hole. There should be a small, plastic rod sticking out. Push it back in. (If it's out.) If this is the problem, you should hear the compressor turn on and the fridge should start cooling off again. If you still have the owners manual, it'll probably point you to its exact location.

I hope this helps! :)
