Defrosted freezer and turned back on. freezer seems to work but not fridge. back wall of fridge feels warm


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Fridge part now working


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

What your describing is a result of either an automatic defrosting problem or an Air Damper problem.

Here is what you can do to determine if it is a defrost issue or an Air Damper issue.

1. Unplug the unit
2. Empty the freezer section ONLY contents
3. Place a fan blowing into the freezer section for a little over 2 hours. NOTE: This will make a water mess so be prepared.
4. After the manual defrosting session with the fan re-load the freezer contents and plug the unit back in.
5. Check food section temps in about 4 hours.
NORMAL temps you have an automatic defrost problem
WARM temps you have an Air Damper Problem.

Either of the above will require further troubleshooting or service. At least you will know where to start or... what to tell a service person.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Zanussi integrated fridge freezer, top half fridge not working


It appears you need to get the cold distributed from the freezer section to the frig section. This can only be accomplished by a fan that forces the cold air throught openings between both sections. Since the freezer in at the bottom, cold air cannot go upward, thereforethe fan. Chech that the interior fan (in the freezer section) is running. Check that the air openings between the sections are not blocked. Finally, if all looks good, then maybe the compressor system is slowly failing and only making enough cold for the freezer, but not enough to be circulated. Goodluck, Macgivor

Zanussi fridge compartment has stopped cooling but freezer is ok


How to check everything
http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp .

OR.
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

My fridge freezer comprises of the top one being the fridge and bottom is the freezer. its Zanussi by Electrolux . problem is the fridge is not functioning and its warm (its not cold at all) but freezer is...


It sounds like the fan in your freezer is not working so it can't get the cold air to the frig or your coils are not defrosting and it is stopped u and cant blow air into te frig, One way to check if you hear the fan and know that it is working open the frig and put your hand up near the vent to see if you can fill cold air if you can't now open the freezer door if you can feel the cold air or more air r coils then you could before then your coils are stoped up the unit is not defrosting.

Zanussi refrigerator/freezer model ZX99/5


Hi,
I had the same problem...it was a defrost problem in the freezer....mad i know...fridge doesnt work but freezer does...so its the freezer problem right!!!
This is how i solved it....there is fan behind the freezer compartment....you need to remove all the freezer draws then the plate at the back of the freezer compartment(everything is accessible from inside the freezer only) once removed you can put your hand up inside the gap(make sure power is off and unplugged) just in reach is the fan which you should be able to rotate with your fingers...mine was covered in ice and not able to move as a result the cold air couldnt be blown up into the fridge(the only thing controlling the air into the fridge is a flap and depending upon what fridge setting you have this determines how much cold air its letting in.)
If the fan has been frosted up you need to defrost the freezer....and source a new defrost sensor.
hope it helps.

Warm fridge


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, this normally would point to the fan not spinning. The function of the fan is to draw the cold air from the freezer and force it through the vents to the refrigerator area. Even having said this, the fan is activated by the logic controller based on the the thermostat setting of the refrigerator and condition of the door (it must be closed).
To check:
  • fan - open the door, locate the door switch, press on it, light should go off, fan should kick in within 60 seconds. If not, faulty fan, fan relay, or controller. Alternately, you can measure the continuity of the motor's coil and or if there is voltage going to the terminals of the motor;
  • thermostat refrigerator side, you would need to use a continuity tester or have an electronics shop perform this. At room temperature the reading should be low, and should go high when the probe end is submerged in a glass of cold water.
Alternately, it may be the vents, flaps or vanes that are stuck, clogged, blocked and hence no air flow from the freezer to the fridge side.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

THE MAIN FRIDGE IS NOT WORKING, THE TEMPERATURE SEEMS TO BE VERY WARM. THE LIGHT INSIDE THE FRIDGE IS WORKING OK AND SO IS THE SOUNDER WHEN THE DOOR IS LEFT OPEN.


Listen for the fan that is in the freezer section. The fridge part relies on the freezer fan to get it's cold air. Only the freezer section gets cold...the fan in the freezer blows cold air through ducting to the fridge to get it cool. Either the fan is bad or the air ducting to the fridge is restricted by ice. If the airway is restricted by ice then your defrost timer is bad. Good luck.

Zanussi fridge freezer


sounds like the freezer evaporator has iced /frosted up and you will not get cold airflow through it. try a 24 hour defrost to clear it. then check fridge cooling.
