Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Below is a link to common solutions that will help you with parts and diagnostic procedures that are specifically tuned to your manufacturers data plate information.
It provides exploded view imagery, belt routing diagrams, parts imagery and function, parts ordering and shipping information, error code details, just about anything you need to get your appliance up and running again. Once you access the site you will be able to navigate numerous pages of information on your product. You will need to enter your model number to access your product information.


Tip: Always provide the complete information provided on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the user’s manual. This will help you acquire a more accurate and expeditious response to your complaint. I will post the most common solutions to your complaint. For more specific information please refer to the tip and/or link provided.

First, check to see if the light comes on or if there is any fan, motor, or other sound coming from the appliance? If so, the refrigerator isn't really completely stopped--go to the specific problem you are having. If not, try adjusting the thermostat to a colder setting. If that doesn't work, read on.

Second, check to see if there is power getting to the refrigerator. To do that, plug a lamp or other device into the same outlet the refrigerator is plugged into. If there's no power, check the fuses or circuit breakers. If the fuses or breakers aren't the problem, contact a qualified electrician to restore power to the outlet.

If there is power to the appliance but it still seems to be stopped, there may be a problem in one or more of these:

  • Wiring

  • Thermostat

  • Defrost timer

  • Compressor

  • Overload and/or relay

Unfortunately, we can't describe all of the possible problems and repair solutions here. If you are unable to troubleshoot the problem from here, you may need to contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

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!

Fridge Temperature wont stop blinking


I had the same prob, you need to defrost it until No MORE water drips out of the drain pipes located at the back ( there should be 2 of them one for fridge one for the frezzer, make sure the rubber thing at the top of the pipe is not closed up- if it is cut it open ) when you think its defrosted place a cup under these pipes and leave it for a few more hours, if there is ANY more water in there your not defrosted yet and it wont work--- Leave the doors open of course, mine took almost three days and i live in a hot climate.
ok once you have done that, take the cover off for the main circuit board ( top of the fridge ) on the circuit board there should be a little black button with "test" on it hold that in and turn the fridge on. it should beep at you ( wait 5 sec ) then push it again ( beeps again, wait 5 sec ) push it again, you have to do it about 3-4 time before it stops beeping, when its stopped, just leave it, it should start up after a couple a mins.
the fridge will take much longer to get cold so be patient, if you find it flashing again push that test button, i just played round with mine and it came right, good luck, because the only other way round the prob is to turn it off at the wall and turn it back on.
