Question about Haier HMSE03WAWW (33 cu ft) Compact Refrigerator

1 Answer

My mini fridge stopped working while I was at work

All the clocks in the house were blinking 0:00 so I guess there was a power outage for a little bit. Well I unplugged it because the motor was really hot and left it after messing with it a couple days. A week later I plugged it in and it worked. Left it on all night on high cold and it never stopped. So I turned down the settings to the middle and it cut off and wont switch back on. Haier model number Hmse03waww. Is this a easy fix? I went to the haier website and the available parts are pretty cheap compared to buying a new mini fridge. is it the Thermostat?

Is the compressor again getting hot once you turn the temperature down? Will the refrigerator cool if you turn the temperature to as cold as it can get? Reason I ask is I am trying to decide if it is the thermostat or a defective staryt relay. Even at the cost of parts I would be careful and sure of what you are going to do here. Haier is not well know for quality products or customer support and there are other brands names out there that will support customers much better than Haier. Not trying to say bad things about your refrigerator I just hate to see when people invest into something and then get left holding something that Haier will not help with and does to all of their customer. Thanks Sea Breeze
I have lost valuable customers because of Haiers lack of customer support.

Hi ejb9,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: You have a mini fridge at school, a small Haier. Your fridge is getting power and the motor gets very hot but the fridge is not cooling, not even a little... any ideas???

May be low on freon or cloged expantion valve. You're going to need a certified tech to check and repair. Maybe it's time to look at the cost of repair verses replacement.

Feel free contact me again!

SOURCE: Fridge not cold but freezer working great

I had the same problem, and it turned out to be a cooked fan motor.
I couldn't find a reasonable (less than $150) replacement motor from Haier places, but I just took the motor out and took it to an appliance repair center (in North Denver)
They said it was a standard part, charged me around $22 for a new one and I was all set.

For my replacement motor, it was a reversible design, and was initially set to go the wrong way, so I had to reverse it.

SOURCE: Fridge won't start up.

have you tried testing the plug. Has the fuse blown in it? try changing the plug to see, then if this doesn't work try a different power outlet.

How do we operate the clock radio with batteries?

Anise, most clock battery backup's will most likely just keep the time setting on the clock until power is restored rather than actually power the clock radio during a power outage.

How do I fix A clock that has not worked since a power outage

The cooking environment is not really clock-friendly and it is amazing cooker clocks and timers last as long as they do. If it is a mechanical clock it is likely to be driven by a synchronous motor. When that type of motor starts sometimes they run backwards and need stopping again. Sometimes they just don't restart and need a tap or flicking the adjustment controls might work. Could be it needs cleaning or perhaps it is worn out.

If the clock is electronic, it must be remembered a power outage is often accompanied by a damaging current surge.

I suggest you remove the clock and check the supply. If the supply is ok the clock is faulty.

How do you get the clock to operate on a battery only (uses a 9V). I insert the battery, then unplug the clock. The display is dark. But when I plug it back in, it is on the right time. If there was a...

They're just used to retain memory. That's all. Once power comes on, the time should be correct. Now if the power went out and there was no battery on the clock, when the power comes back on it goes straight to flashing 1200.

The 4004-20 timer began humming after a power outage. It will not stop, and I have pushed every button and turned the dial. How can I stop the humming?

Paragon 4004-20 is DPST mechanical timer with 240V clock motor

I'm guessing that clock motor is source of noise.
If timer is keeping good time and dial is not slowing at tripper points then timer is basically sound.
Turn power OFF and spray WD40 or put a bit of white grease on the gears.
The noise might also be the timer mechanism vibrating in the box... see if snapping out the mechanism and putting it back makes a difference ... you might have to push sides of box inward to hold mechanism tighter.

Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, expert speaks with you over phone while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

Will not work after power outage. Clock shows the two dots. Clock will not set.

Try and unplug the microwave and wait for one minute before replugging it back into the outlet. If the clock still won't set then the board inside needs to be replaced. This is a common problem with microwaves. they are very sensitive to power surges and or spikes. A good idea is to have a surge protetor installed on your electrical panel to protect the whole house. Hope this helps.

Frigidaire side-by-side stopped working

I would chech the components on the compressor. Take the cover off the compressor power terminals and inspect the relay for damage.The power outage is not a concern but the power surge could definately be the cause. hope this helps.

Try unplugging the unit for 30 seconds then plug it back in. The power outage may have been erratic and the MW did not reset properly.
