Question about Miele Refrigerators
My fridge isn't cooling down at all, the only way i can get it cool is by pressing the 'super cool' button. do i need a new thermostat, the gas refilled? your help would be very appreciated.
Hi, if you can find the input of cool air there a slider to shut it make little way to in cool air to keep cool down.
If there a possible thermostat make it lesser so that thew thermostat will on and off.

SOURCE: Indiset Fridge not cooling
If the compressor is running and not cooling then there is no refrigerant circulating in the refrigerator or no air moving across the one or both coils. No ice in the freezer section indicates that no cooling is taking place at all, pointing to a lack of refrigerant rather than poor air circulation due to a bad fan or frozen coil.
You can try a manual defrost to ensure it's not a frozen coil by unplugging the unit for several hours with doors open then starting it again. If there is still no cooling occurring you need to check the refrigerant level. If its low you will have to find and seal the leak, pressure test with nitrogen, evacuate and weigh in the correct amount and type of refrigerant listed on the unit.
Hope this helps, needless to say be sure to find a reputable qualified technician to open and service your refrigerant circuit this will make or break your unit.

I am going to assume you are in the UK. the voltage is higher than most household refrigerators here in the USA. Disconnect power to refrigerator and check continuity on two of the three terminals of the compressor at a time until you measure the resistance in the windings all the way around. The terminals should be marked R, S and C. (Run, Start and Common) you should get a reading with your multimeter all the way around. When you have done this and have the readings I want you to touch one end of your multimeter to the metal pipes or any clean metal outside the compressor and the other to one of the three terminals one at a time like you tested before. With your multimeter set up the same, see if you get a reading from metal housing to the three pins, or terminals c, r and s. You should get no reading. If you do, the compressor is a burn out and on the first test if you don't get a reading on the two at a time test between two post that is considered to be open or broken windings. The compressor does have an internal overload that may be open also. But if cool at time of test, and it shows up the compressor in bad. Let me know what you find...Thanks, Sea Breeze
