    RF28HMEDBSR/AA: Turns off completely after one hour
    28 cu. ft. 4-Door French Door Refrigerator

    Turns off completely after one hour
    I suspect this issue maybe be a result of several power surges. The fridge turns on and works perfectly for 3o minutes or so. The condenser turns on and the fridge begins to cool. The computer works without issue. Everything about the fridge seems functional for the first 30 minutes. The fridge then just completely shuts off. The lights inside the fridge turn off and it's like the fridge is not plugged in. I can restart the fridge and get it to run for another 30 minutes but it will then turn off again.

    I'm handy and can change the board or various parts out but would like to have some idea of what’s going on before I start throwing time and money into this project.

    Any thoughts on the problem here?

    Below is a link to a couple manual for this unit.

    Perhaps the diagnostics will give some info about the fault.
    If yo get it running again by unplugging it for a couple minutes than than would ponit to a control board problem as you are resetting the board when you remove power from it.

    I always recommend that electronically controller fridges use a Appliance Surge Protector.
    This can be purchased from Home Depot etc.
    I recommend a 1000 joule unit but a 750 should also do the trick if you cannot find a 1000 unit
