Of course when one thing breaks everything does. Fridge stopped working and lights are still on but won’t keep cool. The electrical on the front where the dispenser is isn’t on and that’s where you could control the temp. We just got painting done and they moved the fridge so wondering if something is loose or need a new one. Any ideas? Or who to call to repair?


Try unplugging it, letting it defrost and plugging back in. Sometimes those condensers will freeze up when moved around. If that doesn’t work, then I would call someone.

You might want to check the fan on the condenser to see if it’s gunked up with dog hair. (If you happen to have a dog or two)


If the symptom is that it feels like no electrical at all is getting to the pump (ie, you can’t hear any motor or fan noise) it’s possible the pump motor has an overload protection switch on it (similar to a garbage disposal). If the fan stops or the motor overloads the switch shuts it off and may require manual reset. Check for overload protection or maybe a loose wire. Not sure if refrigerators are equipped with these or not.
