Your fan has stopped working. You need to either replace it or see if your defrost timer is working.

Firdge not working


Is it just a fridge or fridge/freezer? If just a fridge it may be the thermostat, if it's a fridge/freezer it depends if you have 2 compressors or 1. Check & come back.

What you are hearing is most likely your compressor cycling on the overload due to drawing excessive amperage, You will have to have it checked out by a tech

No light in refer but works in freezer


Check the door switch to see if is working and try another light bulb or try the light bulb somewhere else to see if the light bulb is good. Check to if vent holes coming from the feezer are blocked by something in the fridge. This will make it feel like your fridge is not working.

I moved our 18 month old samsung fridge freezer Model SR281NW and one week later it has stopped working. The freezer fully defrosted and the fridge, even though it has the light on, is not cold


Is the compressor trying to run at all. Are any sounds coming from the area of the compressor? Like a hum and a click sound in that order? If the compressor is cold to the touch it could be a control problem. If the compressor is cold there are two things that shut its power off. The thermostat which controls the temperature or the defrost system. If the compressor is hot the problem is compressor related.

FFA60 Hotpoint fridge/freezer Red warning light


if i read the english right, the compressor runs but the freezer fan only runs for a short time. no fan then no cooling. there is a fan stat so that the fan only runs when the evap is down to temp. this may be faulty. also on some hotpoint, the fan switches off when door opened. check door switch operating ok. this may also explain problem with fridge lamp
