Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

The motor on my Sanyo Mini-Fridge goes out every 3 to 4 days. The previous surge protector it was plugged into shorted, and I think that may have something to do with it. What is wrong? It will work fine for 3 to 4 days then the motor will continually try to start, but will never fully turn on. I have to leave it unplugged for about a half hour, then I plug it back in and it works.

Defective relay/overload combination if you replace them and it works, there's you problem, if you replace them and the problem continues, suspect a faulty compressor.

We have a maytag refrigerator model msf21d4mde01. We started losing power to the controls on the door, but it would restart after an hour or so. Note that the fridge was working properly during the outage,...


Hello;

My mane is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

In your owners manual it is recommended that you have a surge protector. You can purchase individual wall socket surge protectors for about $22.00.

Any appliance in your home that has a control board should have a surge protector. A power surge can knock out your control boards.

You should have a 12 month warrantee. Get the surge protector before the service technician comes.

The control board on the door P/N W10606407 Cost $115.00 - $150.00.
You also have a power board in the lower back that communicates with the front control board. Since you have power this board is probably good. Cost: $120.00.

If you do not have coverage at this time and also even if you do, contact Sears Home Services and buy a, "Protection Agreement". As for the, "SMART" agreement. It covers you for $500.00 per service call. If you have 3 service calls in one year you are covered for $500.00 on each call. If they can not fixit after 3 calls then they give you $500.00 towards the purchase of a new unit. Do not let them talk you into the more expensive, "Master Protection Agreement". You do not need that.

If you do not have coverage now, then buy the , "SMART Agreement" wait 3 weeks and then call for service. The service technician does not care how new the coverage is. The technician just wants to do the repair and move on to his next 10-13 service calls scheduled for that day.

I have a SMART agreement on my clothes washer, which I can repair, but the service agreement cost less that the control board parts.

What does a CE error code on an Electrolux refrigerator (model EW26SS65GS) mean?


My fridge was having the same problem with CE being displayed, light and touch selector not working. With the assistance of one of my sons, we tilted the fridge back slightly and removed the control circuit board. Two of the three 470 u F capacitors were toast. My son drilled out the plastic brads holding the circuit board in the pan, then removed all three of the 470 u F capacitors. He soldered 3 new capacitors in place (0.59 cents each) and used 4 small screws/nuts to secure the board in place. After looking at the capacitors, he said a power surge had caused the damage. We went right out and bought a surge protector for the fridge. My fridge works perfectly now. While protecting tvs and computer from surges, I had never even thought of using a surge protector for the more costly fridge! Hope this helps someone else avoid an shamefully expensive parts replacement.

Amana bottom freezer refrigerator-


No appliance manufacturer recommends the use of aftermarket surge protectors. They pull high amperage at start and exceeds most protectors. You can have a whole house surge protector installed in your main panel by a licensed electrician. They are the only method that works when serious surges happen.
