Re: mini refirgerator stopped cooling, interior light
If nothing is running but the light is on you might want to unplug the unit for about a minute. Then plug it in. If it starts up again then do nothing. It just had to be adjusted. If the display shows a er then it could have something wrong with the thermistors. If it shows 2 dashes then let me know and I can try to walk you thru a program to get you backup and running again. If 2 dashes you will have to get to the plug so pull the unit out.

If you have power to the plug, then it is either the start capacitor, the start relay or the compressor. IIf it is the compressor it is a major expense, so you will decide how much you are willing to invest in an old one, before you buy a new one.
Honeywell compact refrigerator model # 88031 making a clicking noise, not cooling, interior light blinks, and the fans in back are not working properly....seems as if it's not getting full power. worked fine for about a year and justed stopped.
It will be very diffilcult for even the most experienced technician to troubleshoot your refirgerator with so little information. No make and model number, no infor on how old it is...therefore start with the basics:
Verify it has power (does the interior light(s) come on?
If so, most refrigerators DO NOT have a reset button. The motor overloads reset when they cool off. If your unit has power and will not start after left alone (unplugged) for a few hours, then either the thermostat controls (most likely), a part of the thermostat controls (some controls use mutilple sensors and control relays), the overload on the compressor is bad or the compressor itself is bad. If the condenser fan runs but the compressor does not...I would suspect a problem with the compressor or it's electricals. If nothing starts except lights...I would suspect the temperature control. Good-luck.
you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow. You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model
Most common problem on GE's is the defrost heater(s) has gone bad. They are a glass tube and when they go bad the tube will have a burnt or black color to it. A good heater will be clear. I bet that is your problem. Seems to be the problem about 90% of the time on GE not defrosting.
the back panel inside the freezer has screws in it. take out the screws to remove that panel. the coils are behind that. melt all the frost. youll see one or 2 heating elements in there also. replace the elements. its a common ge problem. this will fix the problem
