I have a haier 7 cubic chest freezer. It keeps shutting off. But if I tap the front dial on bottom right it turns back on and freeze again for a few days but then turns off again.


The dial is more than likely the thermostat. If tapping on it brings it back on and then it cycles fine for a few days, the thermostat is needing to be replaced.

Thermostat is the likely problem. Not seeing the correct temperature.

Model # bx2255w Amana Refridgerator bottom freezer works but refridge isn't cooling any more. Is it time to retire our approx 15 year old fridge or is there an easy fix?


If you have high humidity or the door gets opened a lot, the evaporator coil may need a good defrosting. There are defrosting devices in the unit like the timer, heating coils, thermostats that could be bad. There should also be a small fan in the freezer that transfers the air to the refrigerator section. If that's not spinning only the freezer will work.

If you find the fan and it's working you can do a thorough manual defrost by removing the food, unplugging the unit and letting it set for a day with the doors wide open. Have some big towels handy :)

After a day, plug it in and see what it does (don't add food, yet). If it cools down then you will know that the compressor is still good and it's worthwhile to fix.

Easy fixes: Timer and fan.
Moderate fix (cheap part - more labor) - Defrost thermosat
Pain in the **** fix: Defrost heaters.

Our freezer is working just fine but the refrigerator is not. It has been a few days now and it is not keeping things cold. Can the refridge break and not the freezer? Is it time for a new appliance or...


it could be a simple fix,, first take everything out of your freezer,, food, racks, icecream,, then take the screws out of the back panel, if it is a side by side just the lower panel,, check to see if it is froze up,,( big block of ice),, if it is unplug the unit and thaw out with a hair dryer,, then check your heating element, defrost thermostat,, this looks like a round silver button, with a blue or black plastic cap on one side,, if the cap looks like it is coming off, replace this now, the other thing is your defrost timer,, this is inside the refrigerator side,, it tells it when to shut down and defrost,, if your unit just runs and never shuts off this is what you will need to replace,,,,, if it is NOT froze up check the fan to make sure it is working, this is what blows the cold air into your refrigerator side, if its not working then it will not circulate the air

The auto timer in your Fridge is faultly and is not defrosting in the eight hour cycle. There could also be any wire detached from corrosion inside/within the freezer compartment that gives wrong signals to the the thermostat. You will have to remove the inside cover to confirm.check the wires to the heater/ failure of the heater. In case you are not able to do the work have this in mind and look into what the technician responds. take an estimate and move on.Helpful? good day

. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay.
Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm

Freezer works, fridge doesn't cool


Probably excessive ice in the condensor. Likely defrost thermostat or defrost heater problem.

What happens is excessive ice keeps airflow from the refrigerator part of the unit.

My refridge and freezer would stop working


there is a saftey overload switch on the compressor when the compressor is over heating it cuts out. when the fridge is turned off it resets the switch. So now the compressor has burned out totally. you more and likely need a new compressor

Fridge Feezes


My Candy fridge freezer done the same. After a bit of investigation, I found that the little plastic shaft from the front temperature dial that connects to the thermostat has snapped. I merely glued it back together and it worked fine.

In essence, the thermostat was turned on to super all the time, and turning the dial anti-clockwise did nothing as it wasn't connected to the thermostat.

Very flimsy I say.
