FRIDGE FREEZER NOT COOLING
« on: April 24, 2012, 02:00:44 PM »
I have another problem. It started when I tried to turm off the fridge when leaving for vacation. I used the dials inside the fridge and when I tried to turm this up again the fridge stoped reacting. It was running for 1.5 hours non stop. I had to live and when I came back from vacation it did not start at all. The light inside is on however motor does not start. What can be wrong, do I need a new fridge?

jump the control thermostat & see if it will run then, may need to be replaced.

It would be best if you folks would start your own topic.
When they run together it is difficult to keep up with them and other people searching for help get confused as well.

I agree, I have split this into it's own topic.

What is the make and model number of your refrigerator?
