Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I have been in the home improvement and repair field for 20 years. I will be very glad to help you today. Have you plugged something else into the socket to confirm there is power there?
Is the thermostat dial turned to 0?
Hey, it's maxed out on 5, kettle worked fine :(
You plugged the kettle into the same socket the fridge is plugged?
It's there a defrost setting or something like that on this model?
It automatically defrosts. Is there any water in the bottom?
Is there any ice forming on the back? Does the light turn on when you open the door?
No light, nor ice at the back
Is there any noise at all from it? Compressor humming?
No sound at all
What fuse did you replace? Fuse in the plug?
Yes the plug one
Do you have a multi-meter and do you know how to use it?
Doesn't ring a bell
It is a tool for checking voltages. Did the old fuse look like it was burnt out? Can you see a filament in the fuse?
I just have to think it is something very simple. How sure are you that the new fuse is a good one? Fresh out of the package?
After keeping it open for 5 min, the compressor started to make a noise again (the usual one) still no light thou, guess light bulb is out...
Well that would be great. If you close the fridge door and leave it closed for a bit does it start? Maybe not starting because the door is open, eh?
I had it open and closed for like 10 min each time as soon as I realized something was wrong
But now it looks like it was defrosting and now just going back to normal
Great! Possibly the fuse is fitted a little loose or the cover on the fuse.
