No, there is no reset...
Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.

Freezer keeps building up ice on the condenser i think, and after a few day sitting the bottom part of the freezer freezes and the rest dont


Hi,

I'm not sure what system you have but typically there is a defrost timer on the back of the fridge. Often you can barely detect where it is, as only the stem sticks out.
What worries me is the amount of moisture in your fridge. You did not indicate how long to make the build up, check your seals carefully with a dollar bill.

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!

Freezer was working but there was no cooling in the rest of the Fridge.Technicians refilled Gas and also replaced Thermostat.While compressor on,there was a thick ice deposition on the return pipe of the...


You got suckered by the sounds of it.... if your freezer is working your fridge is fine as far as gas charge goes.... thermostat MAY have been faulty but I doubt it.... Your problem probably started a couple weeks ago when the drain that allows defrosted ice (water) to drain into the drain pan at the base of your fridge became plugged for some reason. Then everytime the fridge went on defrost more water melted but did not drain which in turn froze. Now ice has built up and caused the air that flows into the fridge to be blocked, causing a warm fridge.... my advice is to leave fridge unplugged for 48 hrs to thaw it and find the cause of the water not to drain... could be a corn niblet or pea from the freezer... the tube should be visible from the inside or the back

The seperator between my Hot Point side-by-side, the piece of metal that is inside the refrigerator that seperates the fridg. and freezer is very hot, where the doors close on...why???


this is usually an indication that the condensor an has stopped working and is unable to cool the condensor lines and this heat is being transfered to the rest of the fridge .

My ge fridge model # gss20iemcc is only keeping crisper area cool


If you changed the defroster. you know how to take the top apart. Take the fan cover off there is a lover on the cover should be factory set but sometimes they come loose and stop the air from going to the bottom. while you there look to see if it has ice in it. If it dose. the drain may be stopped up.

Hello

Well the sheet of ice was caused by the thermostat failing and causing the fridge to continously run therefore causing the over freezing..

Like a car engine if you leave it running for weeks on end without stopping it probably will burn out...

Or like a horse is you have it working day in day out with out rest it will die..

you compressor on your fridge is no more... it ran and ran and now its all worn out .....

The clicking noise at the back of the fridge is the compressor trying to swtich on but it can't

only a professional can legally change over the compressor
as it is a techincal process recharging the fridge with gas


if you need any other help let us know...

you need a new fridge by the way
