hello, does it ckick every few minutes and try to start for 8-10 secs then clicks off again?
No, I only hear a click every few seconds and nothing happens so I just unplugged it.
the black compressor at the back of the fridge is it running? should be vibrating and warm..
No, it is not running, vibrating, or warm.
you need the compressor then, if it cant start that is what clicks on and off,if the compressor cant start the fridge wont cool at all
Well, I guess I am down and out and should shop for another fridge. This work is no doubt more expensive than just purchasing another fridge. Is that your take on my situation?
how old is the fridge?
About 5 years old. It is just one of those tiny ones (like a dorm room size) that we use only for cold drinks. We only paid around $100 for it.
yes, then its definately time for a new one, compressor itself costs more than that , plus labour and freon
Well, I was hoping you would tell me about some magic reset button that I needed to push :-). I appreciate your time and the money I am spending here is certainly worth it. Thank you so much.
Thanks again, and I am pressing the "accept" button. Later.
