First off, hello everyone. I am new here and chose to post because of how helpful everybody seems to be.
I bought these two new s&d mini fridges at an auction stupidly thinking they would probably work. Well...they did. However in each case, once cold, the compressor shut off. Since then, I cannot get either mini fridge compressor to turn on.
I am new to refrigerator repair, but am usually very handy, and was hoping this was a known issue that there is a fix for.
The models are:
Kenmore 4.6 cu ft Beverage Center (model number 99283)
Kenmore 3.1 cu ft 2 door SS Fridge/Freezer (model number HD-113F)
For each, the power is still on (lights light up and, for the beverage cooler, internal thermostat display works)
Both have a dent on the top rear corner, however they don't appear bad enough for the refrigerant to have leaked. Why else would the compressor just turn off? Starter issue?
