Question about Candy CPCA240FFK Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Heya I have a candy fridge freezer for the last 4 years. Three days ago it started to defrost by itself. Im not sure if its a self defrost fridge freezer but I think it might be. My question is if it is a self defrost freezer how long before it starts to refrost and should I turn it off completely for a length of time. Also, it makes a buzzing noise every 20 seconds or so and then stops ???
It should come back after about 20 mins only and should cool back after about 10 mins.
i'm afraid the buzzing sound could be coming from your compressor which can not start. the over current relay is tripping off after 20 seconds to prevent the compressor from burning up.
i suggest to unplug the ref, let it cool for 1 day, re plug it after a day and observe the compressor if would run.
if the buzzing sound is still there and the unit is no longer cooling, then the compressor is not running.
check the relay of the compressor. it could just be the relay.
tnx 4 using fixya,
