Hello. Welcome to Just Answer.
Let's address the symbols on the switch first. The circle is the symbol for the OFF position. The line is the symbol for the ON position.
As for your GFI outlet, I've actually seen both. In other words, some brands have an indicator light that is on only when the outlet trips. Others have an indicator light that is on only when the outlet is live. I have the second type in my bathroom.
If it trips, the indicator light goes off.
But the reverse type is available as well.
Do you have any type of electrical tester, to see if the outlet is getting power?
What happens when you push the TEST and RESET buttons?
should I trip the gfi switch ond press reset
ok i''ll try, and be right back. thx
No problem at all. Standing by.
hi and thanks. pressed reset and light came on, fridge switch in in line position but not running. it is a lynx fridge. a plastic sliding thing is connected to the switch ,, does that have to be in a certain position. thx
I would need to see in order to answer. Are you able to post photos here? At this point it sounds like the issue isn't an electrical problem anyway. Perhaps your question should be moved to the Appliance Category. I can move it to that category, so an Appliance technician can properly advise you.
ok, thanks for your help
You are most welcome. Sometimes, it takes a little while for questions to move to the appropriate category. You will be notified when an Appliance technician replies.
