Kicks off from time to time
Will quit running and i can tap the thermostat or board that thermostat is in and it will kick back on.
Es esta una buena pregunta?
Hi @rogernivens ,
If you don't do this what happens?
Does it turn itself on a bit later or not?
Is it keeping the correct temp in both the fridge and the freezer?
It may be that the fridge is just in the auto defrost cycle.
This turns the fridge off once every 8-12 hours (depending on maker) so that the frost buildup on the evaporator in the freezer and in the freezer compartment can be melted and drained away.
During the defrost cycle, the compressor and the evaporator fan in the freezer are switched off and the temperature in the freezer is allowed to rise to just above 32 deg F (0 deg C) so that the frost (or ice) build up melts and is drained away. The process is sped up by turning on a defrost heater.
The whole process is controlled either by the defrost timer or the main control board.
Once a suitable time has elapsed (usually somewhere between 15-30 minutes), the compressor is switched back on (along with the evaporator fan) to drive the temp in the freezer back down to 0 deg F (-18 deg C). Correspondingly the temp in the fridge will go back to approx 37 deg F (4 deg C).
If your fridge is not behaving a lot like this, what is the problem and what is the make and model number?
