Question about Sharper Image (SI714SL2) Compact Refrigerator
Someone donated a minifridge the "SI714SL2" if I recall thats the right model number, but the problem is that it heat's up but dosent cool. Some things I noticed is that the fan in the back of the fridege never spins and I have yet to hear anything internally running when it is on cold or even hot.
This fridge uses a Peltier effect cooler sometimes referred to as a TEC or "Thermo Electric Cooler".
In order to cool it must be able to dissipate heat and it sounds like the fan in the back that it uses to do this has failed.
Replace the fan with an 80mm by 80mm 12v computer cooling fan and make sure the fan blows the correct direction.
The fan will have small arrows stamped into it on one of the 4 sides indicating the direction of rotation as well as the direction of air flow.
NOTE: You can use a 3 wire fan (yellow, black, red) if that is all you can locate, just don't connect the yellow tach wire (the wire that reports fan speed to the motherboard of a computer).
Good luck and have fun.

Probably the stat - disconnect fro mains, short stat terminals together (but not the earth wire) and check if it runs
