Damage was caused by electrical problems, you can check from Thermostat, whether still working or not. then check the timer on your fridge, the timer's function is to turn off and turn on the compressor, periodically. and do not forget to check the overload / thermal protector and relay (PTC) attached to the compressor.

Light on but not cold


We could use a few more details to identify the problem. Does the fridge turn on fine and run (is there a noise at the back?) Does the back get warm at all? Have you defrosted it recently? most similar fridges do not have a resettable "pressure switch". some have a resettable thermal cutout on the compressor, usually on the side. unplug the fridge from power before rooting around the compressor area. Hope this helps - awaiting more info :)

Refrig won't cool on either freezer or refrig side. Confirmed manual settings & allowed 24 hrs for cooling. Is there a reset switch somewhere other than manual switches inside refrig?


check that the compressor is working by feeling for motor vibrations at the compressor, hot compressor unit or hot fins or back wall of the fridge
if there is not heat then the compressor is not working
call a technician as it could be a start/run capacitor failed or compressor seized
get a quote as some compressor replacements cost as much as a new fridge
check that the utility power is getting to the fridge/freezer

Our fridge compressor won't run after a power outage, can it be reset?


compressors use a small start / run capacitor to start the compressor
modern fridges do not like spikes from power outages and many power boards and electronic components fail because of this and I am inclined top use a surge protector before the fridge cord plug

if you dont know anything about electricity and how to probe around safely please let a professional technician service the fridge as its very dangerous to poke around live wires if you do not have a clue what you are doing but if you know how to be safe around live wires you can try:
you will have to probe around a bit with either a test light or a voltmeter.
first : does the light in the fridge come on when you open the door? if yes skip to the bit about the compressor
find the connection the power cable comes in to the fridge and probe for power. if there is power continue on probing. if not replace the power cable
is there power on the compressor? if yes and its not running its broken and need to be serviced or replaced by a technician
if not its likely the "brains" of the fridge (temp controller. level switch. etc)

easiest would be to get a technician to look at it as most likely you would have to call one anyways to fix whatever is wrong

If Fridge working fine now, the problem may be is Hydro Grid.

When the fridge just start, the compressor is running with high pressure of Freon. If Hydro power has voltage surge or power Off/On ( suddenly ), the compressor should be stuck, the overheat protection switch will actived, than fridge will stop working.

The noice of "click" - properly is overheat switch auto-reset.

Galaxy mini fridge stopped working


The thermostat, which is also an ON_OFF switch has failed (@ 99% probability).

No, the little fridge doesn't have a pressure switch to turn the compressor off when freon is low. And no, auto freon is the wrong kind and it wont work in the little fridge. The freon that your little fridge uses is the stuff that all the fuss has been about (with the ozone layer), so it is not sold to appliance owners but only to licensed techs.

If this is helpful I hope you'll take a sec to rate me. Thanks!

My model rs2555sl samsung fridge does not start up after power outage.


Samsung RS2555Sl suddenly stoped working once the power is switched off, If switched on again, only the Ice making sensor light flickers. If both Pwercool and power freeze buttons are pressed for 12 seconds it stars and running normally. Will it automatically start working if I change the Ice making sensor?

Fridge powers on but does not cool


Try pressing light blub switch whist doors are open as fan will only start when doorsclosed. If compreesor is running but not chilling it is either the compreesor has gone and wont be pumping or it has lost its refigerant. Hope this helps
