Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

I have a mini fridge that has completely stopped running. The outlet into which it was plugged works just fine. It seems such a waste to throw it out - any ideas are appreciated!


Answers :

There is no way to guess at the problem, you have to use a multimeter and troubleshoot the circuitry to find out which component had failed. Could be the thermostat
These are fairly basic items and as such the following componets could casue the unit not to run.
\015\012
\015\012The thermostat could be faulty and the most likely culprit and relatively cheap to replace.
\015\012The compressor motor may be faulty - fairly unlikely but if so it is fairly expensive to replace
\015\012
\015\012and that is about it.
\015\012
\015\012It is also worth checking that if your model has a samll colling fan at the rear that it is not blocked or frozen. This just draws air ac ross the colling vanes but will mean that the unit could overheat and blow the thermal fuse, again, if your unit is fitted with one.

Hi, I have an Amana model ARS266RBW side by side refridg and the ice maker quick working. The water in the door still works fine. The filter has needed to be changed for at least a year, but if the water works, that seems like it shouldn't affect the ice. I can find nothing obviously wrong with the ice maker mechanism. Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks, [email protected]

Hello help People, Water is dripping very slowly from the back of the fridge ceiling seemingly coming from the drain in the freezer? We cleaned out both the freezer and fridge and allowed for some collected ice in the freezer drain to melt and cleaned that out. We are also sure to keep the airflow unblocked. It still is leaking and am not sure what the cause Is? any ideas and help would be much appreciated. THANKS Bruce


Maybe the drain is blocked further along - at the rear of the fridge. Sometimes there is a small bend or elbow in the drainage system that blocks.Check the outlet to see if water is actually coming out at all. ... Refrigerators

After shutting off the refrigerator for cleaning, it doesn't turn on. I think interior lights work, but the refrigerator compressor doesn't seem to engage. When the thermostat switch is turned from the off position to the on, it makes the usual clicking sound. I unplugged for about 5 minutes and plugged it back into the wall but to no avail. Any ideas? Your help is appreciated.

My fridge seems to work fine but my freezer goes through cycles where it gets way too cold (-12) when its set at 0F. The ice maker was just cleaned out and dried thoroughly. 3 days later it is full of ice but the ice in the bottom of the compartment is stuck together and frost builds up. Any ideas on what the problem is? I have a repair man coming out today but I want other opinions before I spend too much money. Your help would be greatly appreciated!

I have a KitchenAid Side by Side Refrig Model KSRD25FKWH01 that seems to have stopped cooling. The freezer compartment is starting to defrost and the food storage side seems to be not as cold as 2 days ago. I removed the evaporator cover in the freezer compartment to check for ice buildup or air blockage and everything seems to be fine. The fan is blowing and the evaportor is room temp to the touch.

My first thought is that your compressor has failed. But before fearing the worst, there are a couple of things to check. \015\012Is the underside of the refrigerator where the air blows across the condenser coils all plugged up with dirt and d ... Refrigerators

I have a Whirlpool Side by side Model ed25uexhw01 Serial sk4354373 Refrigerator. A thin sheet of Ice forms in the bottom of the freeze side about every other day or so. I can lift it out very easy and throw it away and it comes back again. It looks like a vent of some sort is in the back wall and ice seems to be at the bottom of the vent. The icemaker is not leaking. It seems to be working OK. The drinking water unit in the front seems to be OK also.

I have an Amana side by side refridgerator. The fridge side is not cooling, the freezer side is still a little cold but not cold enough. I see frost in the back of the freezer at the vents, but no air flowing. It seems that the fan is not blowing air at all. The compressor seems to be fine, the evaporator fan is running in the back and the thermostat switches seem to be working (when I turn it off, it turns off the evaporator fan in the back). Any ideas?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks for your response Woodchuck 789- it is greatly appreciated. I tried checking the dual inlet valves as you suggested - switching electrical connectors and checking output, etc. The valves seem tight no drips or running water after being de-energized. The water drip inside the refrigerator is at the level of the ice maker and the drips appear between the ice maker tray and the control box on the left side. Could the tray be receiving to much water? The drip does seem to be continuous

I have a GE Refriderator about 3 years old. Recently the water dispenser stopped working, and the ice maker stopped as well. The ice maker seems to freeze up as it dispenses water in the tray to make ice. The water line just doesnt work. I checked a bunch of things and still no success. I removed the filter and replaced, and water seems to trickle for a bit, but then stops again. I dont think the line is frozen, but possible i guess. Any ideas?
