I unplugged my fridge to plug it into a power strip (so I could also plug my microwave into that plug), and when I turned it on again it's not making noise. Did I hurt the fridge?

should not have
I would suspect that the power strip reset overload button popped or there is a problem in the power supply
unless the fridge did not need the compressor running as it was cold enough and the compressor had stopped as per the cycle

My Vissani hmdr1030we stops working, the there is a box on the rear bottom portion that makes noise some times i can get it to work by pressing what appears to be a reset button

That white box is housing a timer and an overload protector. That orange dot isn't a button, it is the center shaft on the timer. If the timer is running it should be turning.

Simplest thing to check is the thermostat.
  • Unplug fridge
  • Open fridge door.
  • Thermostat is connected to the temperature dial.
  • Remove the one screw about 2 inches behind the temp dial.
  • Pull down that plastic cover
  • Thermostat has a black, brown, and green wire.
  • Disconnect black & brown, and connect them together. This bypasses the thermostat.
  • Plug in the fridge. If the compressor turns on the problem is the thermostat
  • I took mine out and sprayed it with electrical parts cleaner (can get it at an auto supply store). Don't know if it is fixed for good yet.
  • If you want a new one, I found it at repairclinic.
  • Repairclinic item #1550645. Manufacturer number 502407000304. In the picture you can see the number WPF5E, which is what I see on the one in my fridge. Price $38.15

Hotpoint RLA51 fridge keeps freezing up

A fridge makes cold air in the freezer only and blows it into the fridge throu a little air door with a small fan, one of your temerature adjustments will open and close this little door and the other ajustment (the thrmostate) will turn on and off the compressor at what ever temperature you have it set for. if the little door is closed to much the cold air can not get into the fridge fast enough to make the temperature cold enough to turn of the thermostate. This will cause items to freeze near the air door as the air comming out of it will be something like -20C. to fix this it sometimes helps to open this little door more... something like "freezer temp warmer" and also to turn the "fridge temp warmer". if that does not do it, then the thermostate may be faulty, to test it slowly turn it down untill the fridge turns off, if it only turns off at the off position, replace it. also one last thing , sometimes the airdoor can frost up and restrict the air from blowing into the fridge, so you can unplug the fridge and leave the doors open for the weekend and let everything thaw out. then set all the controls for normal and plug back in. Make sure you do not leave the unit plugged in or sometimes the little door light can get so hot it may melt the plastic lining in the fridge.

Thank you

We had to manually defrost our frigidaire elite refrigerater and now it keeps beeping. Can you tell me how to reset it so it will stop? It beeped all night last night!

Hi there.
Did you unplug it to defrost it? Try to unplug the fridge for about 10 minutes and then try again?
Most often it works. Resetting button on the fridge?

My Amana refrigerator freezer is totally off.

You may have lost your fridge. Try This.
  1. Unplug.
  2. Take a table lamp & plug into socket where you had fridge plugged in. Turn light on. If it lights. Fridge is trouble.
  3. If no light check another socket make sure light works if it works your socket, wiring or breaker is your problem.

  1. If fridge check wire to & from fridge make sure it is unplugged feel & look for crimp or gap in wire.
  2. Check connection to fridge some have a reset button or overload fuse. Reset or replace if you find one.

  1. If socket try another socket see if fridge runs.
  2. If it runs you will have to troubleshoot house wiring.
Contact me if you need more help. Good Luck!
Please rate if this fixed or was helpful. Thank you.

Water filter

The red warning light has to be reset manually - by pressing the Ice Type and Child Lock buttons together for 5 seconds. As for the taste, check the flow direction is correct on the filter and run a few litres of water off.
