call the number in your service manual. they'll ask you to sent the receipr, the silver sticker on the back of the fridge, and a piece of the outlet cord so they know it's not in use. they'll ship you a new fridge. WOW!

Good day,
You did not say if it was running or not.
If not running at all, then it may be the cold control, (thermostat) that has failed. You can remove it, jump the 2 wires going to it, and see if it runs and cools.
If so, you may be able to contact your local appliance parts house for a replacement.
However, if running and not cooling, then 2 options.
1. If under 5 years, sealed system should be under warrant. Call your selling dealer for details.'
2. If over 5 years, not price effective.

Recently our refrigerator stopped working (ice cubes were melting) and then started again when I turned the freezer dial from 5 to 7. The next it stopped again, this time for several hours. Everything...


I would replace the thermostat, cooling control to the unit, it is sticking. Call your local parts distributor to get the part. This model is on micro fiche and not made digital yet. Unable to locate without a production number from the sticker inside your unit.
Hope this helps

My fridge stop cooling including the freezer section, motor is running okay. This is a icemaker fridgedair. Help , please.


Hello kenbarn
Welcome to Fixya

You said,
your fridge stop cooling including the freezer section, motor is running okay. This is a ice maker Frigidaire. Help , please.

What is the model number?
And how old is the fridge?

First try to unplug the fridge for 5 minutes and then turn it on again and see if we reset the system.

If not then you have a bad thermostat or leaking freon, and the pressure is too low to cool anything.

Or,if the compressor went then you may find this article I just read interesting!!!!!!

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense
.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.

My fridge is a Fisher and Paykel and the lights that control the temperature wont stop flashing. I have tried turning it off but I have no idea what is going on. How can I fix this


Hello kadenmeister ,
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

You said, your fridge is a Fisher and Paykel and the lights that control the temperature wont stop flashing. And you have tried turning it off but I have no idea what is going on. How can you fix this!


Try this rather than just turning it off.
This can reset the system.
Turn off the fridge and then unplug the fridge and wait a 5 minutes then restart it.
If you can't reach the plug, use the breaker to cut the power for 5 minutes.
It should reset the system!!
It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems if they are not serious.
Or they are sometimes just a glitch.

Ice maker not working


Hello bnelson488,

Since the ice maker is erationally starting and stopping at it's own leisure.

1.We must first try to turn off the fridge.

2.unplug it or if you can not reach the plug you can turn off the breaker to the fridge also, for 5 minutes!
After this you restart the fridge and see if the system reset it self.
This is a common way to reset some units!

If nothing works then perhaps the ice maker needs to be replaced.

How old the fridge?
Let me know how it works and if you have any questions.

Fridge stopped working suddenly


Sounds like the relay (start device) on the compressor has failed.  This is a very common problem especially for models that are 3-5 yrs old.  I would replace that first.
