Hello,

I want to thank you in advance to anyone who can shed some light on this!

I bought a used fridge about a month and a half ago. After having it plugged in and running for around 3 weeks it randomly stopped cooling the fridge and freezer. All lights were operating but compressor was not running. I unplugged the unit, plugged it back in, and bam it was working like a charm. Now fast forward to a few days ago and same thing! Unit stopped cooling, all food started to defrost, and quickly resolved by unplugging and plugging back in. I saw one thread about similar issues that turned out to be the control board but have also seen a variety of others talking about different issues. I am mechanically inclined so I would like to fix it myself although I know nothing about appliances and not sure where to start. Any advise would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks, Cody
