Refrigerator Does Not Work, But The Light Is On

Today each house is filled with modern household appliances: a washing machine, a microwave oven, a refrigerator. Everything  works, periodically informing the user about the problems. It happens that the technique works visually, but in fact it does not work. Speaking of the refrigerator we should say that it often happens that the technology does not hum, and the light is on.

If the compressor sounds or the relay clicks are not audible, and the food on the shelves began to deteriorate, and the refrigerator does not turn on, and the light is on, it’s a breakdown

When the light is on, but  one of the compartments (or both) does not freeze – this is not a temporary failure or an electronic “glitch”, in most cases, the breakdown of one of the nodes of complex equipment is evident.

It also happens that the compressor does not start, the light does not light – then you can claim its full breakdown. But today’s review is devoted to the problem of an unplugged refrigerator with a burning light bulb. Consider the signs and causes of such a problem below.

Why the engine stalls?

When your refrigerator  has stopped to freeze, but in the main compartment the light or LED-illumination is on (or does not light), first check the following moments:

If you have new equipment, stuffed with modern functions – and they all work, but the camera is warm, check the installation. If the  position is uneven and you did not use the technical level during installation, the door may not fit securely. “Smart” model will not allow the motor to turn on if there is warm air in the camera. There is no point in cooling the air – its flow does not stop. Some models will notify the user of the problem by displaying the corresponding error code on the electronic scoreboard.

If you have a  refrigerator and there is no light in it , pay attention to the power cord, plug or socket. Perhaps  the root of the problem lies on the surface. If the electrical component is in complete order, the old refrigerator could have failed because of an internal fault. De-energize the equipment, unload the shelves and wait for the master.

Important! If the light in the refrigerator has gone out, but the motor  works, check the light bulb. And if the light has ceased to burn, and the fridge does not turn on, there was a breakdown.

What to do if the light does not turn on and the motor does not work:

  • Reboot the refrigerator.
  • If the compressor turns on and the light does not light, inspect the light bulb.
  • If it is burned out, replace it.
  • Halogen, fluorescent or incandescent lamp is easy to replace by yourself – remove the plafond and reinstall the lamp.
  • If you need to change the LED-light, act neatly or contact the service.
