Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

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.?


Answers :

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 the lines instead of refrigerant . The oil causes restrictions not allowing the refrigerant to flow .

We hooked up the water line for the ice maker. When the water was turned on, the water came out from under the fridge. Both connectors are not leeking. We just moved it from one house to the other, on its side for about 1 hr. Let it stand for more than 48 hrs, before pluging it in. This is an Amana side by side MSD2655hew

I moved a True single door chiller from Derby to Reading (about 3 hrs drive). The machine was laid on its back. The machine was left standing for 6 hrs before switching back on, but, switchrd it off again as its very noisy. Is the compressor faulty or should I have left it standing for longer? Mike


Let the unit stand for about a day, the compressor oil probably ran to the other parts leave for about a day off it should be fine. ... Refrigerators

I have a RFG287AARS side-by-side refrigerator. We just moved into a house and the refrigerator came with the house so I know nothing about it. The ice maker was full of ice cubes when we moved in but it stopped producing ice now. Is there a simple solution? Did we accidentally turn the ice-maker off? The "turn icemaker off" light on the front of the door is not lit.

Just moved our fridge (whirlpool Gold Model GD5THGXKS02). Was shipped upright in summer conditions. Has electrical power (light for filter is green). When turned on the compressor motor is running. But the fridge is not getting cold. It was working normally 5 days ago when it was disconnected for loading. It was tipped maybe 30 degrees for moving on dollies but nothing outside of normal moving attitudes. What should I be doing?

Thermoelectric wine cooler warning light is on, and it won't cool: My thermoelectric wine cooler stopped cooling. Along with this, a red LED indicator on its circuit turned on. The fans work (inner and outer), the inner light works, but the thermoelectric device doesn't cool. No wires are cut, the fuse is OK, the coller wasn't even moved from its location (=no physical reason) Solutions?


It is probably the thermostat itself(what you set temperature with).They endure the most abuse in the system and directly affect the temperature,of which there are several different ways your cooler would react because of the 2 separate sections with ... Refrigerators

I have a kscs25inss kitchenaid refrigerator. I opened the door and there was no power, the unit was not running (no compressor, no lights, no water). The circuit breaker did not trip, but I reset it anyway...still nothing. I moved the unit forward about 2 feet to access the back. The unit turned on and started working (lights on, compressor on, water on). What gives?


Hi, Most likely the outlet has a loose wire or the cord for the refridgerator has a loose wire. Check the outlet on the wall see if it moves at all or has any loose wires in the back...if that looks ok replace the cord to the refridgerator.\015\012\0 ... Refrigerators

Hello. We moved into a house a year ago that had a sub-zero fridge/freezer. When we go on vacation, the freezer unit sometimes shuts off (from not being used??). To get it working again, we have to turn the freezer up a notch. Consequently, we are now on notch 9 and don't have much room to go! Plus, our stuff is too frozen. But if we try to turn the level down a notch, the freezer shuts off. Or stops working, rather, since the freezer light still functions (and the fridge still fuctions). Anoth

Just moved into a house with a Danby "Millenium" wine cooler that fits under a counter. I plugged it in, turned the temperature control using a coin, nothing happens. No noise, no cooling, light doesn't even come on. Plugged into another outlet as well. Can't find a manual at the Danby site. Is there anything more to turning it on that just the temp control?

Moved a lady's WRN28RWG6 to her retirement unit and it now stays frozen in both compartments. Feel bad about this as you can imagine. Any advice would be appreciated. It was on it's side for about 20 minutes, on a trailer. She let it stand for about 2 hours before turning on the power.

My 6 year ol GSS25 ice maker works intermittantly. The green light is on. Water leaks from the left side of the tray and freezes on the unit. It will only dump the cubes if I move the white lever that tells when the bin is filled and jiggle the wire and connection, then wait. (I don't know exactly which of these is helping) Then it will not keep making ice without repeating the same process. I have turned the unit off and on at different times, but didn't seem to do much.
