Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

We had a power outage which lasted 45min - 1 hour. We never opened the refrigerator doors until the power came back on. At which point the temperature inside the refrigerator had already gone up 15 degrees. Is this a common problem with this model? And what can be done to fix it. I have no control over the power outages and I don't want to loose hundreds of dollars in food next time there is a longer outage.


Answers :

Check and clean your fridge door seals as they may be dirty, have perished/not flexible or even crack.
All doors should also close with a positive 'hermetic' feel: check and remove any obstruction.
You can check the firmness of the seal round the door with a thin piece of plastic or cardboard wedge between the seal and door 'frame'.
Hope it helps.

I have a Kitchenaid refrigerator that the coil in the back of the freezer will freeze up and not make ice or keep things cold. Had this problem a few years ago,after a power outage and a service tech checked it out saying because we didn't let it defrost all the way that it would cause the defrost control to fail. Anyway I replace the control two weeks ago and the fridge works fine for about 2 or3 days before it start doing this all over again. Can some one give me a hint of what to do to fix

My Samsung RS2445 Side by Side Refrig fails to restart after a power outage to my home. This requires someone familiar with the Samsung control board logic. After the power interruption, the ice chute door clicks and the beeper beeps and it displays error code 1. The manual says it waits 5 minutes but it doesn't seem to get that far into the restart diagnostic routine. I have learned how to reboot it and it starts right up. It starts right up when I reboot the system. The refrigerator runs


Hello. You should check the diagnostic logic board and also the motor. The root cause of your problem is the power surge that occurred when the power came back on. You may have to replace the control board. J. ... Samsung RS2534 Side by Side Refrigerator

Troubleshoting my ge refrigerator gss25kgmc. Last week the freezer did not seem to be working well (stuff melting) so i cleaned the compressor (the parts that i could reach) -it was very dirty. Afterwards it seemed like maybe that fixed it but later the next day my refrigerator wasn't (we had a power outage in between the times). i could not hear any noise like a compressor working so i unplugged. I now have the frig unplugged for several and have just plugged it in. i hear a light humming noise


Hi there,\015\012\015\012To know if the compressor is running you should also feel a sudden vibration once it kicks in. The fan should run once the compressor is on. If it cools after 20 minutes it means that the compressor is running but not o ... GE Refrigerators

Its a cooling fan error.There are two cooling fans in the unit.One inside the freezer section and one beside the compressor.The compressor is getting overheated because the fan beside the compressor is not operating correctly.Due to this you get CF e ...

After being away for three weeks for Christmas break, I came back to find that my Haier Refrigerator was off. I looked and it was plugged it and the dial on the inside for temp control was set at 5 like I had done before I left. I checked and the outlet the fridge is plugged into is functioning properly and I was recently told that we had a power outage over break. I unplugged the unit and set the dial on the inside to OFF for several hours. I noticed that the back of the fridge was still very

I have a maytag MFC2061HES. Every so often the refrigerator stops cooling. This is the challenge. The issue appears to be intermittent. I have traced the problem to the control damper. The freezer works fine. I can hear the motor turning to open the control damper door, but the little pin does not push down and the door does not open. I fix it by turning the refrigerator off at the control pannel and unplugging the refrigerator. I go through this cycle several times until I observe the d

When we lose power due to storm outages and the power comes back on ...the display panel (non LCD) on my GE Profile french door (PFSS6PKXSS?)blinks 86 and 88 in the temp control area and the controls for the water/ice selection disappear.

Light comes on showing there was a power outage and beeping occurs. However, it can't be shut off. After some lenghty time(months) the same thing happens again. Electrolux has sent us several control units as replacements. The problem is then corrected.but again after a significvant time the same thing happens. This last time we are not sure that a real power outage occurred. Since we have guests and the beeping drives us crazy one of the guests suggested that I replace the current unit w

I have a Dometic Americana refrigerator that is not working. When I first turned it on, everything was fine. I left for about an hour and when I came back, there were no lights on the control panel or the interior. I checked the power going to the back of the refrigerator and it has power going into the circuit board. I do smell a very faint smell of ammonia, but it is not very strong.

Sub-Zero 650/F The refrigerator is not cooling fully. It will hold about 50 degrees, maybe 47 if your lucky. The freezed appears to be OK. Funny thing, the control panel for the refrigerator appears to be working backwards. When you hit cooler it displays a higher temperture and vice versa. I thought the micro controller was confused due to recent power blips so I shut the unit down completely at the circuit breaker. That did not remedy the problem. I also checked it with a digital thermometer t

Hi! The power went out in our home today for about 8 hours. When the power came back on, only the freezer was cooling. Neither the refrigerator nor freezer cooled at the temp I selected, but the refrigerator is stuck at 53 degrees. I've reset it and unplugged it several times since we first noticed there was a problem. Any ideas? I just bought this thing for $250, which isn't a bad deal.
