My refrigerator stops running and everything gets warm. If we hit the top of the fridge, it starts to run. Once it stops, it won't start again until we hit it. Any suggestions?

Fridge stops working and warms up for half a day then will cool back off and start working for a day or a few days. When it warms up everything in the freezer defrosts but will then refreeze a day later...


Check your defrost thermostat in your freezer access panel. Your defrost timer could be faulty, Your defrost timers ussually run for 12 hours and defrost runs for 30 minutes. That being said that is why I believe your timer is getting stuck on run and then eventually it finally gets unstuck and goes into defrost. Eventually it will get stuck in one place or another.

Our Beko Fridge Freezer has started to make a rattling noise. When it is turned off it stops and starts again once turned on again. Any thing we can do to fix it?


When it is off, gently shake the frig to see if the rattle is something in the frig hitting togrther. If that is not it it could be the compressor hitting the case inside due to a broken spring on the motor. The only repair for this is replace the compressor. In which case you let it run like that till it quits completely. That can be a very long time. Eric

My frigidaire refrigerator does not get cold, but the freezer is really cold and freezes up. there is huge sheets of ice that form in the freezer and the food in the refer goes bad.


My problem also is that freezer is cold but fridge gets warm. When I turn the whole thing off for a sort time it works again.
How would I know which part needs to be replaced to repair this?

Samsung RL36SBMS keeps cutting out, it runs for a few hours the stops and gets warm if i turn it off and on again at the panal at the front it will start working for a while? any ideas?


This is not a full solution, but I'll tell you what I did. Somewhere along the way, something worked.

First, I defrosted for about 48 hours. I turned it on, and the same thing happened, as if it was broken.

I took off the back panel (and also the support for the ice rack) mostly. I got all but the top bit off, so it hinged on the top (I was afraid of breaking the plastic. I checked that there was no ice around. I spun the fan, and wiped the grooves where the air flows (to clean it off a little). I put everything back together. It was tricky making sure the wires on the left did not get caught.

Bizzarrely, having disassembled and reassembled everything, it all started working again as if there was no problem.

Incidentally, the blinking light under the "5" seemed to indicate it was in test mode. I tried to somehow get it out of that by holding down buttons for 8 seconds or so, but that did not seem to work.

If this or something else works for you, please do post, but at least this worked for me, and it is worth a shot before buying a new fridge.

Incidentally, I have read enough to know that I will not buy a Samsung fridge again.
