Initially, the only easy user doable tries are:

  • unplug for an extended period of time;
  • plug back in but into a different outlet.
  • set POWER to ON and not AUTO.

All others would be internal.

If so, are you then considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach? If yes, do you have access to and familiar with a multi-meter and even a soldering iron?

If pursuing a DIY, please post back with clear pictures of the internal circuitry particularly the power supply section. Click HERE.

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
