How to Troubleshoot a Nucool Refrigerator
The Haier Nucool refrigerator is a small refrigerator commonly meant for spaces where a traditional large-scale unit may not fit, such as dormitory rooms, apartments, bars, garages, or outdoor kitchens.
The refrigerator has a bottle rack, door shelf, temperature regulator, evaporator and a small freezer section with an ice cube tray. Typical care and maintenance should keep the refrigerator running well under most circumstances, but if issues arise with the unit, some troubleshooting steps may help.
Connect the Nucool refrigerator to a functional power outlet if the refrigerator is not working. Reset or replace the fuse or circuit breaker if needed. Turn the main power supply switch to “On” and turn the thermostat dial to a cold setting.
Place the refrigerator on a flat surface stable enough to support the weight of the refrigerator if it is vibrating or making unusual noises. Keep the space around the unit free of obstructions that may rattle when in contact with the refrigerator.
Remove objects from the refrigerator if the unit is too full and the door cannot close. Clean the door seal with a damp cloth.
Push items back away from the door if the temperature in the unit does not stay cool despite a cold temperature setting. Keep the refrigerator closed as much as possible and do not place the unit in the path of direct sunlight or heat. Wipe the ventilation grille with a damp cloth and keep the grille clear for proper air flow.
Dry the surface with a clean cloth if moisture appears on the inside or outside of the unit. This can happen during times of high humidity. Keep the refrigerator door closed as much as possible.
