HRS means that the compressor won't start up for some reason. First, unplug the refrigerator for 5 minutes and plug it back in after you remove the lower access panel so you can monitor the compressor. Plug the refrigerator back in. If you hear the compressor try to start every couple minutes and it kicks off it means that the unit is overloading. If the compressor is cold to the touchpad and the compressor doesn't even try to turn on, you need a new control board because it's not sending power to the compressor. So let's talk a little more about the overloading issue. There is a small plastic box attached to the side of the compressor with several wires going into it. This is your overload relay. Pull the overload relay off the compressor and shake it. If it rattles, then it needs to be replaced. If it doesn't rattle, then you likely have a bad compressor and you'll need to call a technician in order to replace the compressor.
