You may have noticed that refrigerator manuals often contain instructions on the free operation of the unit for the first few hours (or the time specified in the manual) after connecting a new unit. What does that mean? Another common reason that can cause the refrigerator to stop working is frayed wiring. This is probably the easiest problem related to the refrigerator once the location of the faulty wiring is identified. Call the repair professionals if you have refrigerant leaks.
Compressor motors tend to break down mainly for two reasons. Firstly, in the event that your refrigerator is too old and the engine has probably ended its service life; secondly, the compressor motor may overheat in case of intensive use (due to overfilling as mentioned above) and stop working.
