Fridge freezer stoping after 24 hrs


most of these freezers have an automatic defrost cycle.
after so many hours of chilling it will stop and run a de-icing cycle.
this is accomplished by one or two heating elements.
if one of the elements is burned out it will not run the defrost cycle.
and will ice up quickly.
depending on the model the heaters will usually cost about 15 to 20 dollars and they are easy to replace.
look up the model of your freezer and download the pdf files they will usually have a pictorial diagram showing the location
a defrost timer usually does nt fail on them unless it is physically damaged.

My fridge freezer is running non stop


It is probably because it's not getting cold enough to cut off. If you slowly turn the thermostat to warmer it should cut off when it gets to that temp.If it doesn't cut off then it is a thermostat problem. When you have heavy ice buildup on the evaporator coils inside the freezer behind the back panel that will hamper the cooling. This is caused by a defrost system failure.

Top mounted freezer on refrigerator not working


Move the refrigerator to a room that is at least 50 degrees F.

Temps on most refrigerators are regulated by the fresh foods temp. If your garage is let's say 35 degrees, the fresh foods temp will most likely never raise enough to turn the refrigerator on. With the refrigerator never running, the freezer compartment will warm to 35 degrees, resulting in everything melting. Even if garage is a bit warmer, say 45, the refrig will not run long enough for the freezer to maintain a low enough temperture. If the garage temp falls to below freezing, say 20 degrees, the food in the fresh foods compartment will freeze. (outdoor beverage dispensers have internal heaters to prevent product from freezing !) Please don't rate this if not a Fix-Ya for you, as anything else lowers my score.

Freezer freezes but does ever stop running


thermostat is stuck on! set to medium setting and gently tap stat. does it turn off? it was stuck. does it still run? its still stuck. if you feel comfortable find stat and power in and out. disconnect - it has to turn off then. but 99 % of the time its the stat. they fail closed and run 24 -7 or fail open and temps get real hot and they never close and restart compressor . yours appears to have failed closed. sometimes you can firmly twist em max cold to min cold a few times and break the stuck contacts and they'll do ok for a while. try to reset at a little higher or warmer temp when done so its not making and breaking on the same old worn spot again. good luck.

Freezer stops and start


ice cream is always the last to freeze and a temp of minus -10 degrees is usually required to get it to get hard. if you put the ice cream in the door it will be especially tough to freeze. a good thermometor is a good investment as you can observe the temps. usually ten degrees or 20 degrees is what they run. yes they do cycle on and off as long as they hold temps thats good. the outside of the freezer gets warm because the hot compressed refrigerant is spread through piping near its surface giving up its heat of compression . setting the stat to max will freeze the ice cream eventually but utility bill suffers . good luck
