HRT02WNC Refrigerator not working

Worked fine for about a year then just stopped, it is getting power to the circuit board but the fans are not running nor are any of the heat sinks warm(or cold). Any ideas? no obvious circuit board damage.

    I do not think that this unit has a compressor. It is a small unit (about 2 square feet) It is a "silent" unit, no coils, just a large heat sink about 8 inches square, a fan inside and on the heat sink and a small circuit board. Any other ideas???
    Thanks

Have you checked if you get power to compressor? probably a defective relay/overload ,possible dirty coils. if fan looks connected to the defrost thermostat change the defrost thermostat that usally goes bad, it's usually an L40.

My RJ 523V-R refrigerator has worked perfectly for 8 years, but suddenly stopped cooling the fridge properly while the freezer seems ok. how can I fix this?


Often times their is a fan from the freezer section to the refrigerator section, of some brands of boxes. If the fan goes out, the refrigerator sections no longer cools.

WHAT CAUSED MY CONDENSER FAN TO STOP RUNNING


If the refrigerator is running without any other problems, then just replace the fan motor. Here is the fan and it is only $36.80. No where near $100.00!

Frigidaire GLRS264ZA refrigerator keeps blowing GFI circuit


The fan and defrost heater are run off the same relay on the board. When on defrost, the fan stops. when the fan starts, the defrost heater is switched off, Sounds like the neutral to the board may be shorting. If you have the ability, try powering the evaporator fan from the compressor relay, disconnecting from the board entirely. To see if this will work, just take a temporary wire to the fan when disconnected and see if it trips while running.

I have a hot point refrigerator. The fan in the freezer keeps shutting off. I can restart it manually but it continues to shut off every few hours. I have already replaced the fan motor. Any ideas on the...


With HSS being the beginning of your model number , the freezer fan gets it's power from the main control board . It runs off approx 6-9 volts DC . Replaceing this board , located behind the refrig , behind an 8X10" panel , will solve the problem . The part number for the board , is WR55X10942 . It is easily replaceable .
I have no idea what the other expert is saying .

My Maytag MF12568AES Refrigerator is not cooling. May be I need to reset the computer.


This happens to my Maytag like clockwork every summer. The freezer works fine but the refrigerator stops cooling. The first time this happened, it was the fault of the small plastic DC fan that sends cooling from the freezer compartment to the refrigerator section. A technician replaced the DC plastic with an AC metal fan he guaranteed would last the life of the refrigerator. He blamed govt energy standards as the reason Maytag uses the cheap DC plastic fan in the first place. Problem solved. One year later, same issue with no cooling in the refrigerator, freezer fine. Again today, nearly one year to the day! SOLUTION? Trip the circuit breaker or unplug the refrigerator for a minimum of 5 minutes. A reboot now fixes the problem every time. Who would have thought you'd ever have to REBOOT your refrigerator?

5 year old Maytag Wide by Side Refrigerator side not cooling


Same issue with my 6 yr old Maytag side-by-side model #MSD2756GEW. Turned out it was caused by a faulty circuit board. This circuit board is located in the upper right fridge section. Apparently these boards are sensitive to power surges (which we have here in central Texas from time to time.) When the circuit board is fried, it makes a noise like a fan blade malfunctioning and it stops the auto defrost feature in the freezer from working. So the freezer ices up at the back, and the ice prevents the cold air from reaching the fridge section.

Our circuit board (which we thought was a fan) made ominous noises for a few months. (The noise would last only a minute or so and stop shortly after we opened a door). Eventually we noticed that the fridge wasn't as cold and the freezer had snow in it. Finally the board stopped making noise and about a week or so afterward we noticed that the milk had spoiled and the fridge wasn't very cold. The food in the freezer side pretty solidly frozen, thankfully.

In addition to replacing the circuit board, the fridge had to be de-iced or it would not work properly. I put it all frozen into a large camping cooler where it stayed for several hours. I opened the freezer doors and put table fan and pointed a hobby light which gets quite hot, at the back of the freezer. Within 3 hours, the ice had melted significantly so I could see through the grate at the back of the freezer. This really great technician named Tracy, made a special trip to the parts store to get the circuit board and came back within a couple hours, bringing with him a steamer. He removed the back panel inside the freezer section (the coils are behind there) and used the steamer to melt the rest of the ice before he left.

Tracey, who works for a local appliance repair company, told me that about 4 years ago, Maytag started making their fridges with built-in surge protection, so the circuit boards apparently don't get fried on the newer models as they do on my 6 yr old model. He recommended that we put plug the fridge into a heavy-duty surge protector - which we are definitely going to do.

its possible that your water tank has frozen up, try turning the refrig off and leave the doors open for about 10-15 mins and try it again. if that works just reset temp controls a little lower..
