    Hello guys , this is my first time to post here i hope i can find help i bought this Vissani(Magic chef) 9.9 cu ft refrigerator last yr and it was working great , now the fridge has a weird issue every like 10 hrs or so i found the fridge shutting down completely by it self even the thermostat light (not the fridge lamp) is off , i don't have any technical background about fridges however i unplugged the electric cord left it couple of hrs then i plugged it again everything was find the compressor went on the fridge start working as if nothing happened then after another 10 hrs same problem same solution and so on , what is the problem here ? I ruled out the PTC or the overload because the fridge starts normally after couple of hrs rest , i took some pics at the back of the fridge because i found some corrosions , kindly check it (attachments) and let me know what you think .. thanks for help

    Tip of the day, set your Samsung Smart Fridge to a foreign language so Google can't spy on you!!

    It is the only thing that would "reset" by powering it down and back on.
    Your welcome!
