Question about Zanussi ZEBF250W Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Despite being a frost free freezer, it has now started to ice up in the bottom of the freezer compartment. Starting to need a de-frost every couple of months, and the bottom freezer draw is getting stuck in all the ice and becoming unusable. Also occasionally find some water on the floor under the freezer in the morning when I come down.
I don't know the particulars of your brand, but if it is frosting up Most fridges will have a bad heater element, a bad defrost timer (or controller if it is electronic) or most likely a bad defrost limit switch. This is a switch mounted on the inlet line of the evaporator with a clip and senses when the evaporater is defrosted so that it does not get too hot and start melting parts. This switch should have zero ohms of resistance when cold (below 40ish) and be completely open when above 40 or so. The easiest way to test it is take the wall covering the evaporater off and locate the plugs for the swiths. Test continuity through it. If it is sitting in ice, it should have no resistance. If it is open and in ice (infinite resistance) then it's bad.
