Sorry there is no Fuse or reset, that can be tripped to effect repairs, if only, no, most likely it is either a component or switch failure, but, check all obvious connections etc.


however, these units have a long fault history it seems, (gee, just Google the name) usually it is the main output semiconductors that fail, usually damaging other circuitry as well. I have to say, that these units are not a great unit, but, it also appears that there are spares around, and it maybe fixable. Often tho, repairs must be weighed up against the cost of a new unit, as the repair costs can quickly exceed a new unit, with a warranty.

These units, are best remedied by simply replacing the entire main board, and or Power supply... or both sometimes...

Hello randy.... it has thermal over load protection with automatic shutdown and restart after cool down. Here is the manual in case you do not have one

Another area to check is the circuit breaker or fuse in the electrical panel for your building.

FREEZER WORKS...FRIDGE DOESN'T


Hi,...

In that case you need to check this

  • Make sure the refrigerator is plugged in securely
  • Check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker
  • Test the power outlet for current
  • Inspect the electrical cord for damage
  • Eliminate use of an extension cord, if any is being used
  • Check the outlet voltage
Good luck !!!
