I have a Crosley CT19A5 refrigerator in my garage that stopped working during this winter. I found that if I monkeyed around with turning the defrost timer that it wouldn't click on and off with the timer.... but if I thumped the area where the timer is with the handle of the screw driver that the frig would start to run. So I unplugged the frig and found a used timer from a friend. Put the new timer in and presto, the frig started up. I could turn this time and turn the frig on and off. I felt the air coming through the freezer and it felt good and cold. Thought I had it fixed.... nope. About an hour later I went out to the garage to check on it and it wasn't running. So I thought maybe the timer was almost into defrost when I left it, so I tried to turn it manually again to see if it would come back to life.... no dice. So I left it alone over night to see what would happen (I left freezer pops in the freezer to see if they freeze up). Morning time.... Nothing.... still dead.
Ideas? This is just a freebie "beer frig" that I got last summer so I'm not out anything really but I would really like to get it going without spending a bunch of $$.
