It stopped about a week ago. I have defrosted it a few times and tried to start it again. It seems to run normal for about 4 hours than frosts up. It happened last summer once but we defrosted the fridge and it started back up fine after fully cleaning the coils etc and there was no more problems. Don't know if this had any impact on the problem now.
I turned it one click....it went around 1 or two turns then clicked.
A bit more info. yes I did turn it one click but the compressor never stopped.
Yes it finally did after about 4 clicks. I believe that if the defrost heater is working the compressor should come back on in 30 min approx. is that correct?
It is now about 28 min later and the compressor has started back up. However, the fan in the fridge is not turning now...it has been all day. Also the coil is icing up significantly.
I'm off to bed its 6 hours ahead of the post time so I have had it for the day. I appreciate you guidance. Thanks very much.
