I have a Samsung RS2555SW Side by Side Fridge. Recently the cooling side quit cooling and i had the defrost heating unit replaced which had iced up and quit working. That solved a problem for a while. Then the cooling side started freezing everything even though the temp indicated 4 degrees. The thermostat or temp sensor was checked and appeared to be working ok. It stopped freezing and worked ok for a week or so and then started freezing everything again. It stopped freezing things but now app

My Hotpoint food centre model 8923 works intermittently, the defrost timer and thermostat test ok and the compressor has a feed, yet it takes the fridge a couple of hours before it works, then when it reaches -25 and once I adjust the thermostat it miss behaves, by this I mean it reaches room temperature before it starts to cool down again, any Ideas please?

I have a whirlpool refrigerator, and as i was moving it a sharp edge nicked one of the cord's wires. Made some sparks, and shorted a wall socket. After stripping and splicing the wire together and plugging it in to a different wall socket, it worked just fine... for a little while. Then it stopped cooling. Lights still work fine, no problems with dust, all the connections are good around the cooling unit and everywhere else i can reach. Any ideas? I'm fresh out, short of tearing off the back pan

My Magic Chef refrigerator has stopped cooling. When I unplug it for a few days, and then plug it in, it will work for about a week, and then quit cooling again. The freezer is perfect, and continues to freeze, unless, of course it is unplugged.


The most likely cause is that the defrost system is not working. After about a week it builds up with enough frost to stop the cold air from getting to the refrigerator section. The most common problem is the defrost timer, defrost heater or defrost ... Magic Chef CTB1502AR Top Freezer Refrigerator

I recently moved a "new" side by side frigidaire from dallas texas to lubbock texas. It was "laid on its side for the first three hours of the move and then stood up for the last three hour trip. Upon unloading it was plugged in but dosn't cool properly. The ref. area cools slightly but the freezer not at all. I understand that the compressor oil is probably displaced by the move. How do I get it to work? Do I need a service repairman? How do I check to see if the compressor is ruined? Thank

I recently purchase a coffee shop and found that the refrigerator is not cooling properly. One of them is leaking water and very noisy. I had the repair man changed the fan and replace coolant, still making the noise and not cooling at 41o. I also have two other fridges not working but was told that is good, just need some service. Do you provide service in Sacramento? What is the cost for service and do you offer free estimate since I have 4 to repair? I can be reached at 916-284-9654. Thank yo

I have model GSS22SGMD BS The refrigerator works for a few days then I notice it is not cooling or freezing.

I have a ten year old Whirlpool top freezer refrigerator that was recently repaired for non cooling. I believe my landlord replaced the thermostat but somehow was unable to properly reinstall the drainage system. Fridge has leaked quite a bit of water into the inside compartment since this repair. Now, the fridge and freezer are freezing up, with quite a bit of ice visable. Of course, this has caused the fridge to stop cooling in the lower compartment, but freezer seems to still be working ok.

I have a Westinghouse side-by-side fridge/freezer (model RS642) and the coils in the freezer part freeze up (do not defrost automatically). This in turn prevents the cool air to reach the fridge. Therefore the fridge does not work. At the moment we have to turn the fridge/freezer off and get rid of built up ice to make the fridge work. How can this be fixed. Thanks for your help. We live 100km away from the nearest technician.

I have a older Kenmore refrigerator I use just for overflow, to cool pop etc. When I put it to secondary use, I removed the ice maker. Since the defrost timer was part of the ice maker, I installed a defrost timer that plugged in to where the ice maker used to. It has been working great for some time. When I discovered recently it was not cooling and the compressor was not kicking in, I first checked the defrost timer. When I move the adjustment and hit the groove, it shuts off and when I tu

The freezer is not freezing at all & we don't know why the fridge all of a sudden stopped making that noise when you leave the door open for a while, or just by itself when it's doing it's thing keeping the fridge cool.

My Frigidaire FRT21NRG gets cold in the refrigerator, the freezer also gets cold (i put a bag of ice in there and it has remained in ice form for a couple of days), but it wont make ice or it wont freeze whats already in there (ice cream, pops, icemaker wont come on). I'm assuming its not quite reaching its lower temp needed? I lost power for about 1 day recently and the problem started after the power was restored to the home...prior to that everything was working perfectly.
