SOURCE: i left my freezer door open by accident on a beko

you may need to manually defrost the evaporator coil. If condensation built up from the door being left open, it may have frozen the coil solid. At that point even the evaporator defrost bar won't be able to remove the ice. Remove the cover, if it is frozen solid, unplug the unit and use a hair dryer to defrost the ice.

Hello,

Insufficient cooling is a fridge repair job that you can do without the help of a professional. Often the fridge has a frost-free failure, or the compressor is faulty but there are many other reasons for a fridge not cooling properly.
Step 1 - Find the Problem

Your first job is to locate the source of the problem. Consider each of the following:

* Gaskets - Make sure the gaskets/seals are not torn and are sealing properly.
* Evaporator fan - Make sure it is working. If it is now working you may have a problem with the fan motor. Check for power to the motor and also examine the fan switches around the door (not all fridges have these switches).
* Air damper - Sometimes the air damper will not open up to allow the cold air from the freezer part to blow into the fridge section.
* Condenser coils - Check to see that the condenser coils don't have a dust build-up and that the condenser motor is working.
* Compressor - Make sure your compressor is working with on and off clicking noises.

Step 2 - Frost-Free Failure

This is the most common cooling problem in fridges. Expose the evaporator coils by accessing the panel in the freezer section. The coils in the freezer section can sometimes get clogged up with frost. This can stop the evaporator fan motor from blowing cold air around, or cause the fan to hit it and stop, or become noisy. The defrost timer can be a bit tricky to find but it is usually located behind the back bottom corners of the fridge, although they can sometimes be found in the ceiling of the fresh food section, or behind the cold control cover.
Step 3 - Find the Timer

When you find the timer, turn the wheel-like screw slowly with a screwdriver until the fridge shuts off. The refrigerator is now defrosting. If you find that the fridge starts now, you will need to replace the defrost thermostat and the defrost timer.
Step 4 - Volt Test

If the heaters do not come on, use a volt meter to ohm test the defrost heater or volt test for 120 volts to the heater. You can bypass the defrost thermostat if you haven't got power to the defrost heater to check if the defrost heater will come on. To bypass the thermostat, join the two wires together. Replace the defrost thermostat and the defrost timer if the heater comes on now.

If there is a ticking or squealing noise in the defrost timer, or it seems hot to touch, replace it.

Many fridges have and inline fuse on both sides of the defrost heater. You will need to replace the whole heater if one of those fuses blows. Check these fuses with a volt meter if the defrost heater doesn't work.

A quick check if you have a cooling problem is to inspect the evaporator coils. If there is a build up of white snow on the coils, this indicates a frost free problem; if there is balled ice on part of the coils with the rest bare, this indicates a system problem, like a problem with the pumping compressor.

Hope this will help in solving the problem....

SOURCE: I have Beko frige freezer,

Hey Guys, I have a Maytag Bottom Freezer / Refrigerator Model #MBB2256GEQ Serial #10155937AL That runs constantly I cleaned the coils then I turned the defrost timer clockwise until the refrigerator and freezer shut down, it was supposed to go into defrost mode I'm not sure if that happened after approximately 20 min, the refrigerator started up again however it does not keep things cold and is not keeping the food in the freezer frozen it's keeping it semi-frozen. I am not sure if it's the thermostat or the defrost timer. I believe I found where the thermostat is but if anyone can tell me where the thermostat is located on this unit. I would greatly appreciate it and if they can tell me where the defrost timer is located I would greatly appreciate that too and how I can change that out I would greatly appreciate that or whatever suggestions they may have that would solve the problem thank you

If you are lighting the pilot corectly and waiting for the thermo couple to warm up and then setting it to on, then the thermo couple is probably bad. Good luck!

SOURCE: HAVE A KENMORE REFRIGERATOR -

The main thing that makes a fridge door shut is that it falls shut because it is set at a slight angle with the front of the machine higher than the back. You may find the solution is as simple as making the fridge tip back a tiny bit more by turning the front feet clockwise to screw them out of the chassis and make them longer, causing the fridge to tip back a little and the door to fall shut as it should.

Fridge light won't turn off..does that mean the fridge has stopped working or only the light needs to be fixed? Can tell it's not cooling as much as it used to.


The light is usually a seperate circuit to the fridge compressor and it staying on is more likely to be a faulty switch than the fridge not working. Open the door and look around the perifery of the door opening, there should be a spring loaded plastic part that pushes in when the door is shut and springs out as you open the door. Try manually pushing it in and see if the light goes off, if it doesn't then the switch behind it may have become dilogded in it's housing or broken. Turn off the power to the fridge, unscrew the housing, re-position the switch or replace it, re-fit the housingturn on the power and test.

Fridge door won't stay closed


What is the model number of your unit?

Door springs


If the door won't stay shut the issue is with the door catch not the door springs, But if you want to know where the door springs are you need to remove the outer cabinet of the dishwasher and you will see them on the lower sides.

Beko fridge freezer left door open all night in error


If the door was left open the fridge compressor would have run without a cut off and so would have resulted in an error. Please shut down the fridge fully remove power for about 6 hours and restart.
