My Zanussi fridge/freezer is making a funny little noise

Hello
I have a ZX99/5- i fridge/freezer, it is about three years old. in the last couple of weeks it intermittently makes a little pipping noise, and all three lights flash. It only does this every now and then. What do you think is bothering it?
Kind regards, Judie

What you may be noticing is the system going through a defrost cycle. Check the time of the day that you notice this event. If it happens at the same times it could be a normal situation if at all other times normal temperatures are being maintained. A popping sound can be caused by thermal expansion during the defrost.

Zanussi fridge freezer wont stop making a whirring noise


Sounds like the unit is goosed and is trying none stop to get the temperature down in the fridge.

That is of course unless the ice is building up like an iceberg inside the cabinet in which case the thermostat has gone

Fridge making a purring sound then stopped working


Yes, I think you have a problem that can be fixed easily by a repair technician. The sound as you described it could have come from the air circulation fan in the freezer compartment striking ice. As the ice builds up it could have stopped the fan from rotating and air flow to the refrigerator compartment.

Hi - we had this problem, and it was in fact where some blood from a defrosting pice of meat drained into the compressor condensation tank and began to decay!

I agree the smell is terrible, so a good clean up is needed but this solves the problem immediately!

Kind regards,

Mike
