I twisted the little red thing mounted on the white box in the back of the fridge mounted to the left of the compressor. After I twisted the red dial clockwise about a 1/8 turn the compressor started up and so far it is cooling. only been 2 hours though, What is the red thing I twisted??? and what is it's purpose?

Avanti RM440W mini fridge not cooling.

Hello Dave;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

There are several things to check.

1.) Door Not Sealing Tightly - I addressed this problem by raising the front end of the unit to assist the door in remaining tightly closed.

2.) Bad Thermostat - This is a long white tube about 1/8" in diameter mounted on the liner wall.

3.) Freezer Compartment Iced Up - You only have one cooling source and that is your freezer compartment. If the compartment is full of ice and frost you will not get good cooling.

4.) Refrigerant Leakage - Most Probable - The freezer section is made of formed very thin plate. The raised contours are also very thin. Your owners manual advises not to use hard steel tool to defrost. All to often, my customers use hammers and screw drivers to defrost and nick the contours. Run you hand across the cooling plate. If you feel a oily substance, then you have a refrigerant leak. If you have a service contract, it is less expensive to replace the unit than repair the seal system.

Nothing working when thermostat turned on.checked voltage at transformer 110 at top and 24 v at bottom,cant figure out whats wrong .any ideas

Be the thermostat. Kill the power to the air handler so you do not burn the transformer. Remove the thermostat from the wall. Twist the red and white wires together and turn the power back on to the transformer. The heat should come on. If it does, the thermostat is bad. If it doesnt, do the same thing but twist the red, yellow, and green wires together and power the transformer up. The air should come on in cool mode.If it does come on then we know what to check next

Fridge is not cooling. lights are working. freeer is working

Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------

in the bottom back of the fridge, there is a black box (3"x3") with a little white plastic screw type thing in the center. turn it slightly to see if the fridge starts up. Mine is doing the same thing, making it untrustworthy as it shuts off at will. I am currently looking for the replacement part.

Avanti compact Refrigerator NOT COOLING

I had this same problem. I did some troubleshooting and figured out that the fan was being bogged down by ice. It wouldn't spin because the ice was so heavy. I turned the power off completely and let the ice melt. Once the ice was removed from the fan, the fridge began working again!
