At the top on the control box , there is a hole about 1/2 inch in diameter . Find this hole and use a flat head screwdrive to insert and turn slightly . This is the defrost timer . The refrig could be stuck in defrost . If turning slightly and refrig starts , replace the defrost timer . If doesn't start , TAP on the thermostat knob and see if refrig starts . If so , replace the thermostat .

Haier 5.3 Cu ft Chest freezer. power is on but compressor doesn't run. There is click sound but nothing happens after.


The click sound is the compressor starter relay closing but if nothing further happens it is likely that there has been a compressor failure

Hums seconds only does not freeze


If it hums then quits and hums and quits and just keeps doing this then either the compressor start relay is burned out or the compressor is seized. Unless you are capable of diagnosing this you should have a tech check it out. If it's just a relay they are relatively cheap, but if it's the compressor it could cost more than the freezer is worth.

My Refridgerator/freezer is not working


Sounds as if the compressor is not running even tho the fans are. The overload relays on the side of the compressor are usually the source of this problem. They are on the side of the compressor and if you change these out you should be fine. Fairly easy to do as it should just be a plug connecting it. Hope this helps.

Freezer and ice maker quit working / The temp.display on the door is just flashing .


There may be a fan that moves cold air in the freezer and icemaker compartment(s).  If the fan freezes up the cold air will not circulate.  Since the fridge compartment is still cold it does not sound like a compressor problem.

Freezer has defrosted itself, refrigerator not holding cold


The clicking sound is from a bad start relay on the compressor or a bad compressor.
Replace the start relay. It is relatively inexpensive.
If that does not correct the problem the compressor will have to be replaced.

Kenmore freezer quit working after power outage


simple stuff, you have a compressor a stat and power. check the receptacle to be sure you have 120 volts . then check the compressor with stat at max cold setting to see if you have 120 volts at compressor. if you do then compresssor is bad =new compressor or new unit. if no power to compressor then stat is bad= new stat. i always recomend new unit cause new stat or compressor wont fix a freon leak.... i have replaced a few compressors that died soon after due to a freon leak. good luck...

Refridge and freezer stopped cooling


it is either the start switch on the side of the compressor or the compressor itself.
the buzzing sound is the start switch trying to start the compressor and the click is the overload on the start switch kicking it out.
the start switch is bad or the compressor is pulling too much amps = bad compressor.
