Question about Haier Refrigerators
SOURCE: I have a mini fridge
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.

I followed the advice of Ancient Bob and located the heat shrinked fuse as he described. I removed it from the circuit board using a very small tipped soldering iron and repaced it with an inline fuse holder with about 1" leads(Radio Shack or Auto Parts store) and carefully soldered it in place on the circuit board. This makes a fuse replacement a snap if necessary later..I used a 5A 250V fuse as original. It has been running fine for two weeks now, I think the fuse in question blows if the ambient temperature gets too high in the room-a design defect (my opinion). As Ancient Bob said, the total cost was about six dollars icluding 3 extra fuses. Care must be taken when removing the solder, or resoldering the circuit board. It's not complicated but must not be sloppy. After removing the original fuse I drilled out the circuit board fuse holes (they may fill with solder as a byproduct of removing the fuse) with a tiny drill bit to make the installation of the inline fuse neat and easy. Good Luck

I returned our unit to Home Depot with relative ease... I think they were all aware there is a problem with these units.
They refunded the full purchase price (even though I was well past the 12-month warranty period). I put the money toward a GE Profile unit that's a little bigger - more expensive, yes; but it works, priceless!
