How to reset a Galanz fridge?
To reset a Galanz fridge, unplug it for about 5 to 10 minutes. Then, turn the temperature dial from “0” to “OFF” to reset the cooling system as well. After that, replug and turn ON the refrigerator. And finally, adjust its temperature to your desired setting.
7 steps to reset a Galanz fridge
#1: Unplug the refrigerator
To reset a Galanz refrigerator, cut off its power supply.
And you can do that by unplugging its power cord from the wall socket. Or by switching OFF its circuit breaker.
Important note: Before cutting off the fridge’s power supply, make sure to turn its temperature dial to “0.”
Regardless of which, your goal is to ensure that no power current runs in your appliance.
What a reset does is reboot the unit’s motor and system by forcibly restarting it. Doing this helps resolve most power-related issues and minor glitches.
And since most smart fridges have no reset buttons, you can only restart it by cutting OFF its power supply.
Tip: Do a reset before restocking your fridge to avoid food spillage and spoilage. As it can take up to 24 hours for your fridge to cool after resetting.
#2: Wait for about 5 to 10 minutes
“Okay, I’ve unplugged my fridge already. What should I do next?”
The next thing you should do is keep your appliance unplugged for about 5 to 10 minutes.
When you unplug your fridge, a certain amount of power supply remains on its system.
And your appliance can’t reset unless its power supply has been entirely cut OFF.
Plus, letting it sit for several minutes allows its motor and cooling system to rest and refresh. Which helps your unit run more smoothly and efficiently.
#3: Turn the temperature dial from “0” to “OFF”
After 5 to 10 minutes, turn its temperature dial from “0” to “OFF.”
This step is essential to ensure that your fridge’s cooling function will run correctly after restarting the unit.
Here’s how to do it:
- Open your fridge door.
- Locate the temperature dial. Usually at the right side.
- Turn the dial counterclockwise to turn it “OFF.”
Note: Depending on your Galanz fridge model, the location of the temperature dial may vary.
#4: Replug the refrigerator
For the 4th step, replug your refrigerator or switch ON its circuit breaker.
You’ll know if your unit is running if you:
- Feel a slight vibration on its back.
- Hear a buzzing sound near its motor.
- See its control panel turn ON (on select models).
When replugging the fridge, make sure that its cord is plugged in properly and that the socket isn’t loose.
Doing this helps avoid electric hazards, which can cause harm to you and your appliance.
#5: Adjust its temperature to your desired setting
Once you’ve turned ON your Galanz fridge, set your desired temperature setting.
To do that:
- Open the fridge door.
- Locate the temperature dial.
- Turn the dial clockwise until you reach your desired setting.
For fridge models with display panels, you can adjust the temperature by pressing the UP arrow.
“My temperature dial only has single-digit number labels. What should I choose?”
If this is your case, make sure to review your user’s manual.
There you can find the guideline for setting the temperature on your unit.
But typically, you should set your Galanz fridge at level “4.” That would set your refrigerator to 40°F (4°C).
Can’t decide which temperature level to set?
Follow this recommendation from the FDA:
- Freezer: 0°F (-18°C).
- General compartment: 40°F (4°C).
This setting is enough to cool your drinks and preserve your perishable goods.

#6: Wait for it to cool to the right temperature
Setting the temperature completes the resetting process.
But it can take up to 24 hours before your refrigerator cools to its set temperature.
In a sense, resetting your fridge turns your appliance to its default setting.
And like brand-new refrigerators, it can take a whole day for its compressor and condenser coils to adjust to your desired setting.
If your fridge isn’t cooling yet after a reset, wait for 1 day before diagnosing your unit again.
If the problem persists after that, proceed to step #7.
#7: Contact Galanz support for service
If the troubleshooting method above didn’t work, contact Galanz support.
Before you contact them, make sure to prepare your:
- Warranty information.

- Galanz refrigerator serial number.
Once you’ve submitted it, they’ll provide other solutions or send a technician to your home. Whichever applies to your case.
If you have a mini-fridge, you can bring it to any of their service centers for repair. Just make sure to schedule an appointment as their carry-in services are limited.
“Do I have to pay for anything?”
If your refrigerator is still under warranty, their service is free-of-charge.
But, keep in mind that your product warranty only covers manufacturing defects.
So, if it got damaged for other reasons, you may have to pay extra fees or cover the costs for parts replacements.

You should reset a Galanz fridge if it suddenly malfunctions after a power outage. Or when it isn’t cooling after months of not using it. A reset would also be helpful if you’re moving or cleaning your refrigerator.
“Can it really resolve my fridge issue?”
A reset is an easy and effective method to resolve glitches and most power-related issues.
