Question about Smeg Refrigerators
Don't know the model/brand off the top of my head...
But: If the compressor is warm/hot, but nothing is happening, I ask this:
Even if the fridge is not cooling, is the compressor running, or dead silent?
If silent, but warm, do you hear a "Click" every so often ? Maybe 3 to 5 minutes apart, followed shortly by a 2nd click ?
If so, most likely the compressor has seized, and this is the over-current trip acting (thermal, so it needs time to cool).
Big problem if it is the compressor (expensive).
The only other thing that might cause a similar occurrence, would be if the compressor has a Start capacitor. If this has died, the compressor will not turn - just sit there getting warmer, as the over-current trip acts.
If it was a dead thermostat, the compressor wouldn't get power, and would be cold.
