    The refrigerator works perfectly, just the light does not work. I cannot change the settings because the light does not work and so that section is also not on. The refrigerator remains cool.

    The refrigerator works fine, except for the light. I am just talking about the lighting.

    I have a subzero 695 refrigerator/freezer - side by side. The light in the refrigerator is not working. The refrigerator is still cold, it is just dark which also means you can check the temperature or turn on/or off the icemaker, etc., because you cannot read the panel. It is not because it not plugged in as the last expert suggested. The refrigerator works, just the light does not work. Please advise.

First thought is that you have a bad thermostat, but it could be a bad control board. This web page explains how to check a thermostat:
http://www.ehow.com/how_2167621_troubleshoot-refrigerators-thermostat.html
Since the light doesn't work, the control board could be bad. Ohm out the bulb to make sure it isn't good. If it's good, the control board isn't turning it on when the door's opened.
If you enter your correct model number in the following website, it might have your refrigerator's diagrams and parts lists:

Hello,

If you find the lights in your refrigerator do not work, check for the power supply. You need to see if the refrigerator is plugged in properly. Also check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker. See if there is any damage to the electrical cord and check the outlet voltage. check for the temperature control. If it is off, turn it on. Also, unplug the refrigerator and clean the condenser coils.
Troubleshoot the problem and if you do not find any of the above reasons as the cause of refrigerator not working, call the repairman.

Take care.

Freezer and refrigerator not working. However, Light comes on when door is opened.


Since your light comes on, it shows that your refrigerator DOES have power coming in. As for why it's not working let's try the simplest thing first. Since you did defrost it, I am going to hope that you also cleaned it our by wiping it down on the inside to get rid of any water that may have come from defrosting it. When you did this, it is possible that you changed the temperature settings. Check to see where those settings are and I will bet that they are set to the "warmest" they can be.

Temperature


Hello R, thank you for your question! Generally speaking it is recommended that the temperature knob is set in the middle for both the refrigerator and freezer compartment for top mount refrigerators. The temperature can be adjusted by moving the knob in small increments, allowing the temperature to stabilize. If you desire a colder temperature, then turn the knob towards COLDER, or for warmer temperature, turn the knob towards COLD. Turning the refrigerator control will change temperatures in both compartments. For example, if the refrigerator control is turned to a colder setting, the freezer control may have to be adjusted to a warmer setting. Turning the freezer control will only change the freezer temperature. Hope this proves to be helpful!

Frigidaire gallery refrigerator ice maker doesn't turn off...no plastic signal bale arm?


Good day!!!!

When working properly, the thermostat turns the compressor on and off. Once the thermostat turns the compressor on, it will run until the temperature inside the refrigerator is lower than the setting of the thermostat. Make sure that the refrigerator has enough air clearance on all sides. Refrigerators with a condenser coil grid on the back of them need room to radiate the heat away from the coils.
Verify that the door light switch is working properly. Push the switch with your finger to verify the light is turning off. If the light stays on, it will actually warn the interior of the refrigerator. Fix or replace the switch if it is faulty.
Modern refrigerators that have a lot of storage and large freezer compartments run for longer periods of time. They also start and stop very frequently to maintain an even temperature. This is especially true if you have just put a lot of warm food in the refrigerator, or if it is very hot and humid. It can take several hours to get back to the cool temperature you have it set for after putting a large amount of food in it.
If the compressor is not shutting off when the temperature inside the refrigerator is cold enough, you may have a bad thermostat. You may also have the temperature set too high in the refrigerator. Try adjusting the thermostat to a lower temperature. If this turns the compressor off, you had it set too high. With the help of a refrigerator thermometer, you can find a more ideal setting that will keep your food cold, but not so cold that the compressor is always running. If raising the temperature setting doesn't help, it may be a problem with the thermostat and you will need to replace it.
If your thermostat is working properly, there's a chance that you have low levels of refrigerant in the sealed system. If this is where the symptoms lead you, you need to contact a professional appliance repair person. Only an EPA certified technician can legally work on a sealed system. If you attempt to do work on this system, you will void the warranty.
If this is a new refrigerator, it will run for a long time, almost constantly, before it gets cooled enough to stabilize the interior temperature. Allow up to 24 hours for it to stabilize. The refrigerator should be at least one half to two thirds full. This will help to maintain a stable temperature inside the unit. The cold items inside will help to keep an even temperature inside after the door has been opened and closed. Some people prefer to keep a lot of stuff in the refrigerator as ballast, even jugs of water. This helps to maintain temperatures inside so that when the door gets opened and closed often, it doesn't need to run as much to maintain the temperature inside.

I hope this information will be helpful...Thanks for using fixya...

I dont now how to set temperature for samsung rsh1nhmh . All the light in the house vent off and the plugs . Now on the frige screen is only a flashing light. Nothing else


The refrigerator temperature can be set between 7?C (46°F) and 1?C (34°F) to suit your particular needs. Press the Fridge button repeatedly until the desired temperature is shown in the temperature display. The temperature control process for the Fridge works just like the Freezer process. Press the Fridge button to set your desired temperature. After a few seconds, the Fridge will begin tracking towards the newly set temperature. This will be reflected in the digital display.

I believe it's showing the actual temperature that it's currently inside the refrigerator, not the temperature it's set at. At least that's how my sub zero works. You may need to clean the coils to get it to cool better.

Water dipenser


The instruction book suggests this could be because the freezer temperature is set too low. Mine is set at -20C. It says the water line can freeze stopping water flow. Try reducing the temperature.
