Normally an appliance that requires a lot of wattage such as your refrigerator, micowaves, draw a lot of amperage. you may have to look to see how many amps your appliance is required to run.check your breaker and the amp size. if it is less than what your appliance draws. that could be your problem. you might try running a cord to a circuit where you may have a microwave or large appliance plugged in. good luck!
First you need to confirm the presence of power in that outlet before proceeding with prescribed solution.
The start relay may be bad. If bad, check the compressor winding with an ohmmeter. If compressor tests OK, proceed to replace the start relay. Do not forget to check the thermostat; if good that will eliminate it as a culprit.

My outlet in my garage overloaded. I had a Admiral refrigerator Model# Nt71l6 plugged up to it. When I plugged it in to a different outlet it did not start back up, yet the interior light is on. I don't know if the cold weather is playing a part in this. What do you think the problem could be?

Refrigerator GE Profile Model TPX24BIBA WW(purchased 5 years ago)
The freezer and refrigerator are not cold enough. We checked the lights and they go off when the doors are closed. We cleaned the coils underneath. We disconnected it for 24 hours and after we plugged it back on, it worked very well for 2-3 days then the problem came back.
Please let me know what you think the problem could be.

Just brought a second hand freezer for garage. It worked at the house but when I brought it back home and plugged it in it didn't get cold I had a green light on and a red hazard light on. Should I have let it stand for 24 hrs. It was moved upright in the car. Have turned off now and going to leave for 24 hrs and try again. Could this work and don't know what the lights mean.?
The green light means it has power . The red light means the temp is not satisfactory . If the freezer was laid on its side anytime and did not sit for 24 hrs before plugging it in , then it's no good anymore due to compressor pumping solid oil into ...
Kitchenaid Superba Side by Side Fridge: a lot of water is leaking from the freezer side; we can't seem to locate the problem; our ice maker/water dispenser is not plugged it (we don't use it)... what else could be the problem (we were told to check the compressor, and coils, but we don't know where they are exactly).

My refrigerator is a GE model PDS22SCRBRSS when plugged in it makes a clicking noise and the light blinks in sync with the clicking about 1 time per second. It also doesn't get cold. An FixYa expert said it was probably a locked up compressor, but he gave not advice on how to test that. I would like to troubleshoot this problem so I know exactly what is wrong, but I need advise on how to test it. I also would like advise on how to fix it myself, which was the reason I signed up for this site.

Kenmore refrigerator/freezer not cold! I have a Kenmore Coldspot model 57572791 refrigerator/freezer that suddenly stopped cooling/freezing. I took off the back & think it is the compressor @ the bottom left that feels hot but no making sound. Vacuumed out the dust. Any suggestions? Not sure it is related, but had my Christmas tree plugged in to what I now know is an outlet shared by the refrigerator in the garage--noticed tree lights were on/off dimming just before I took it down, then foun

GE Profile 22.2 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Bottom-Mount Freezer - Black
We have a Dometic RM2611 Fridge/Freezer in a 1995 Kodiak 5th Wheel. The campground we were staying in shut down the power for a couple of hours. When the power came back on our fridge quit working. No lights come on, we checked all fuses & they are OK. We have power at the plug on the back of the fridge, so there is power coming into the fridge. What do you think could be the problem. The other thing that quit working was the stereo. Everything else works. What do you think the problem could be
I have a Kenmore ColdSpot Refridgerator MODEL # 52552100. It was working fine until we moved it to my friends house, now it's not blowing cold air. Any ideas to what this may be? Hopefully it's just a reset or something we hit?? Now we have it hooked into a GFI outlet instead of a dedicated outlet like its previous position, could this be the problem? Although, it's not tripping the GFI, it remains on, just not blowing cold air.

I have a Danby Millenium wine refrigerator - Model # DWC044BLP. It no longer gets cold inside...however, the back of the fridge does get cold - the tank (that I assume holds the Freon) is still cold to the touch. I was told that the problem could be that the thermostat needs to be replaced. If this is true, how can I get to where the thermostat is located? I can't seem to get into the area of the electronic display. Please let me know your thoughts on how to troubleshoot this further - with

I have a 22 yr old top freezer fridge. I took it to my cabin last year when I bought a new one for the house. However, it does not work-get cold at all. We don't leave the electricity on when we are not at the cabin. Could this be the problem? When we get to the cabin we plug it in. But the 2 days we are in the cabin it will not get cold. Is it worth fixing it, or it too old. We do have another older fridge that the moment we turn the electricity in the cabin we turn the fridge on, it takes abou

Whirlpool 21.0 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator with IceMagic Plus Ice Maker
My Whirlpool fridge, a smaller model (24" wide, 22" deep, 61" high) was bought in late 2005. It has been moved a couple of times. It is now in a basement but plugged into 3-pronged outlet. It had to be moved across the room and an appliance extension cord used because its own cord wouldn't reach the outlet. But the problem has been and still is since it's been here that the bottom part doesn't keep the food cold at all, and the freezer does make ice cubes but the ice cream is soft and the frozen

Hi, I have a Whirlpool refrigerator, the model is et4wskxkq06. In the past week I've noticed the freezer seems to be cold enough but not the refrigerator...or fresh food part lol. I also noticed that I haven't been hearing the fan or compressor running lately, when I put my ear up to it, I hear it running, and the light is on. I'm sure there are a lot of different things that could be causing the problem, but I just wanted to share something in particular that might help find the problem fas
I have a GE GSH22JSTASS, same problem with both sides not getting cold. Previous answer about the PSS26MSRSS was helpful but the plugs on my model are not the same. (I think the posting was Pt# WR55X10942) Can you advise which plug wires to jump in order to confirm that the compressor is working or not? Thanks very much. I'd like to know whether or not it is the compressor or the main control board.

GE- GTS22WC refrigerator. Both the refrigerator and the freezer stopped cooling, We put it in the basement thinking it was no good, and after a few months we plugged it back in and it worked ok for about two weeks, then stopped again. Just plugged it in again and it is cooling again! The fans all work fine on it, lights are on,etc. Seems ok once again, but I know it will stop again if we can not figure out what the problem is.
The auto defrost heat element is not working. When the ice buildup clogs the airflow the unit stops cooling. Once you unplug it and give it a chance to melt it works again. You need to have the defrost unit replaced. ...
GE GTS22KBP Top Freezer Refrigerator
Whirlpool ET18NK fridge does not get cold but freezer is ok. The freezer portion is around 15 degrees, but the fridge wont get colder that about 53 degrees. The house was empty for about 6 months, and we plugged in the fridge before the heat was on in the house. Dont know the exact temp when we plugged it in, but it wasnt much above freezing, if at all.
If the fan is frozen this would be cause because something in the defrost system is bad. Or you could have a open motor. Make sure the door gasket is sealing. ...

Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System
This fridge won't dispense water. It did this morning, nothing done all day that could affect fridge or water supply. I'm an engineer and I know a little about tracing problems. I checked the line in at the back and it has pressure. Filter fills with water when I disconnect and re-install filter, so it seems water should be getting to dispenser line. Checked coldness settings. Freezer control is on 4 and fridge on 3 so coldness settings should not cause line to freeze anywhere. Anyone out there
