Moved unit to new loation plugged in and it started running and then open the refrigerator door and the unit stopped.

the move and opening the door didn't cause problem ck the plug in the wall and is light inside on . if not re ck power . if light is on it may have gone into a defrost cycle and it will not run for 1/2 hr . if it didn't start up then ck the cold control . these are some of the things that may have caused this . mm hope these help .

Refrigerator was unplugged for a week. We moved it from one house to another and plugged it in and it's not turning on. The light is on but motor isn't starting. Any Ideas?

ck power at new house ( the plug ) do the lights come on in frig ? if so look for wires under frig that may have been puled off during move .. this should not be a tuff one . / the frig should not been damaged by beeing off . did you lay it down dueing the move ( it chould have been kept upright .. as laying down causes the oil to ru up in the cold coil .) hope this hepls mm

Refrigerator light is on but it's not getting cold

Yes, I can help you. (If you like).But you will need to answer a few questions. For example was the freezer and refrigerator doors left closed for all that time with out allowing the moisture inside to escape and not cause the controls to rust or short out. Let me know and rate me if I am helpful, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Have just bought a mondeo and air con doesnt work light comes on inside car and fan works on engine but not getting cold??

Probably needs a charge of refrigerant. A low pressure awitch keeps compressor from running if the system is low or over on refrigerant to protect the compressor.

I just moved my refrigerator from one building to another. It was running ok when I un-pluged it to start the move, and now it will not start when I plug it in in the new location. No sound at all, but the...

If the light inside the refrigerator is on ,that means that you have power coming to it.Check the cold control if not turned all the way to the off position if is off turn it to the oposite side increasing the numbers on the knob.If still doesn't work afte this,check in the back of the refrigerator for any wire that might got disconnet during the moving,if everything is ok you have abad cold control and you have to replace it.Unpluged the fridge ,unscrew the cold control housing take it out(is only 2 wires and a green one thats ground) and put back anew one.Be careful when you installing the new one with the tiny cappilar (silver color ) tube if you brake it or kink it it wont work.
