What you probably have here is a bad relay on the compressor
pull it out and take off the back paneal
you will need to unplug the machine and
remove the plug on the side of the compressor
give it a good shake if it rattles is no good
thats where id start
you can find the part at www.appliancepartspros.com

hope this helps

I have a Samsung RS261MDBP. After a power outage, theres no power, no lights on the display, no sound, and no internal lighting. Holding Lighting and Freeze for demo didnt work. What else can I try?


Check the circuit breaker for the refrigerator outlet. Sometimes during a power fluctuation, an over-current condition can trip the breaker, especially if a motor draws a substantial fraction of the breaker rating.

If you have power at the outlet and the refrigerator still doesn't work, the control module may have been damaged by the power outage. Contact your homeowner's insurance agent if you have a policy to see if repairs are covered.

If there is no power for either the washer or dryer, is there an internal fuse or reset button


I assume you checked the circuit breaker for this outlet? Both appliances are plugged into the same outlet? I would try unplugging both appliances then attempt to reset the breaker again....throw it completely to the OFF position, wait 10 seconds and throw it to the ON position. At this point we are assuming the breaker is working. It could actually be defective. It could be tested with a meter or test light. If you don't have that try plugging a lamp or another device into the outlet the appliances where plugged into. If it works you know your breaker, wiring, and outlet work. If not you need to troubleshoot that...perhaps a ground fault breaker somewhere in between? If the outlet works with the test lamp, next plug in one appliance at a time to try to determine which pops your breaker.

It is not likely, but since you had the lights on the same circuit it is possible that the breaker for that circuit may be tripped. Have you checked the breaker?

The lights will go off after a certain time period; that is built into the control. But if the lights never worked even after the door has been closed for a time, it is probably the light switch, which is in the "throat moulding" or "breaker strip", whatever you want to call it. That it the plastic strip surrounding the door when in the closed position. That should be under warranty.

Complete electrical failure...no cooling, no lights nothing


have you checked the breaker to see if its tripped? That's what it sounds like it could be since you don't have lights either. If after you check the breaker if you have access to a multimeter check to see if you have voltage at the outlet.

Unit not running, not cooling electronic


To operate, a refrigerator needs electricity. If the refrigerator's light doesn't work and it's motor doesn't run:

1) Check the power. Make sure the receptacle works (plug in a working lamp or a circuit tester). If the receptacle doesn't work, check for a tripped circuit breaker or blown fuse.

2) Be sure the cold control is turned on.

3) If you discover that the refrigerator is plugged into a working outlet and the cold control is on but the device shows no signs of life, leave the door closed to retain the cold air and call an appliance repairperson

Fridge freezer shorting out electrics


The cause of this situation could simply be an overloaded circuit. Homes are built with dedicated circuit for fridge only now because of this. If you notice power outage in other rooms or other appliances in kitchen then the circuit affected,I.E. other outlets affected need the load lightened. If it is a dedicated circuit then could be faulty breaker or possibly altered wiring could be cause.These have to be ruled out before you will know for sure. If it isn,t dedicated outlet for fridge only, just plugging in a light could overload loaded circuit.

My Amana refrigerator freezer is totally off.


Ouch!
You may have lost your fridge. Try This.
  1. Unplug.
  2. Take a table lamp & plug into socket where you had fridge plugged in. Turn light on. If it lights. Fridge is trouble.
  3. If no light check another socket make sure light works if it works your socket, wiring or breaker is your problem.

  1. If fridge check wire to & from fridge make sure it is unplugged feel & look for crimp or gap in wire.
  2. Check connection to fridge some have a reset button or overload fuse. Reset or replace if you find one.

  1. If socket try another socket see if fridge runs.
  2. If it runs you will have to troubleshoot house wiring.
Contact me if you need more help. Good Luck!

Not cooling


- Check if there power is a supply by opening the door of fridge, if there is a light then there is a supply. But no light check the circuit breaker. Or try another outlet for testing. If your fridge is digital control and there is some error display, then reset the error.
- Check the thermostat setting if set to high cool, and check the compressor at the back of the unit if running, if not there is something wrong to your control or compressor itself, if the compressor is operating and no cool at all maybe your unit is out of refrigerant, please call a qualified technician.
