Question about Oster Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have the Oster OR4505G3B and i just pluged it in three days ago and today it stopped working everything inside is warm. I have checked and the power is on and the something in there is working as the back is rather hot. Its not over filled on the inside either and the door is closed tight. Im not sure what to do i started using it for the extra space needed. I had the product for over a year before I used it for the 1st time this week, so I cant return it. Is there anything I can do to fix my problem or am i just out of the money i spent?

How was the unit stored? DId you look under the unit and make sure there was nothing under it blocking the ability to vent?

RFGirl, you didn't give me much...that said, try a full defrost of the unit. You probably have a buildup of ice caused by condensation. This is probably because the door seal isn't doing its job well. If the coils that do the cooling are not exposed, you must either wait for a full defrost...about 2 days or figure out how to remove the covering panels and go about melting the ice. If you do, be sure that any heating a hair kept from getting wet. If this happens again, you probably have low gas levels in the'll need a tech. Be sure you unplug the box.

How to check for low gas: Once the unit is defrosted, start it up with the coil covers off...after about 5 minutes, you should see an even coat of frost at both ends of the coils. If not, wait 5 minutes more. If still not, you're low. Alternate method: Go round back and find the compressor...the big black thing. It has a couple of pipes sticking out. The largest is the suction line. Start the unit. Wait about 5 minutes. It will frost up. It should either get dry or form liquid condensate on it if you've got enough gas. If it stays frosted, you're low.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Amana AFD2535DEW freezer/refrigerator with intermittent tempurature swings

I had the same issue. It was the relay overload which essentially provides the extra boost to get the compressor going. The switch tries for about 10 seconds before giving up and then retries 3 - 4 minutes later. In the early stages of failure, eventually it will work and the compressor will kick on. But eventually the switch will fail and will just cycle through the 10 second attempt every 3 to 4 minutes. The part is about $35 - part number 67005560.

SOURCE: Refrigerator door won't stay closed

Pull on the gaskets some times they are broken and will take up moore room that when correctly aligned. especially on the side of the door where the hinges are. Inspect thehinges also see of brackets are loose. If the gasket is bunched up on the hinge side try duct taping them down and retry the door. If this corrects problem replace door gaskets. If a plastic grommet is missing in the door it will nolt align correctly and you will be able to pick up on the outer corner of the door and it will wobel and be loose on the hinge. ReplACE THE GROMETS and retest and align as nessary.

Sideby side whirlpool- 3 years old- ice maker stopped working 3 weeks ago. today everything in freezer is melting

Verify condenser fan is running. Check evaporator coils for frost. IM will quit if freezer does not go below 5 degrees. The cooling was slowly dieing and finally warmed enough to defrost the food.

Oster 4.5 Cu Ft Compact Refrigerator OR4505G3B

I just bought it from bestbuys for $99. It does get really hot when I have the setting on high, but it is still warm when i have it at 1/2 power...warmer than I would like it to be. I connect it straight to the wall outlet.

The temp. may be higher due to ambient temps.

The frige came with messed up box, paint I thought that it was a decfect/return...but I guess it may be normal for it to get so hot.
