This means the heating eliments are not coming on. Usually in this case I change out the heating timer, eliments, and thermostat. All as a set.

The fan makes a lot of noise, is there a way to replace it?


The type of refrigerator you have uses a solid-state device which likely uses a Peltier effect element. This uses electricity to transfer heat and cold on opposite sides of the element, absorbing heat from within and radiating it from the other side being cooled by the fan.
With no moving parts other than the fan, they are very reliable but also very dependent on ridding the element of the absorbed heat which necessitates fairly high air flow to function properly. If a fan was used that produced less noise, the airflow might be too little to allow the element to cool the interior efficiently.
Unless the fan has a defective bearing, which would reveal itself by a rattling sound, it is probably still working as it should.

My avanti thermoelectric compact refrigerator periodically runs very loud which is not normal. If I hit it, it stops and runs quietly again. Any ideas? I have already cleaned the dust off thoroughly and...


The noise if from a sympathetic vibration of the unit which transforms to vibrate any loose joints, parts or fittings.
You will need to listen to the noise, use your hand to hold up the plastics or the joints in the bottom section of the unit or the frame work. It will require a lot of patience to find the source of noise. Pad it up after tapping for loose noise on the rear and insulate the noise heard till you finally get rid of any vibration noise..

Should my haier 1.7 compact refrigerator run


this is a thermoelectric model and runs on a peltier junction. It will always have the fan running. That is the only moving part.

The 5640 Coleman cooler motor runs, but unit does not cool.


This is a thermoelectric (TE) cooler. There is no gas' to replace in it's cooling system. It is possible the thermoelectric coupler has gone bad. Unfortunately Coleman does not seem to offer a replacement part. If you Google thermoelectric couplers, maybe you can find something on the web. Good Luck.

Not getting very cold


thermoelectric needs a good heat dissipation. Give the unit a good ventilation to dissipate the heat, you will cool the unit. The cooler the ambient, the cooler the box. Remember not to reverse the switch, you will get a heated box instead.
