This may be an airflow problem. These are things to check. Make sure the temp control in the fresh food section for both the freezer and the fresh food is set half way between coldest and warmest temp setting. Over adjusting these settings can cause poor air circulation and make the fresh food section too warm. When openning the freezer, the evaporator fan should be on or start shortly. If the evaporator fan stops working, there will be no circulation to cool the fresh food section and will need to be checked to see if it is bad. If bad it will need to be replaced. The evaporator in the freezer section may be iced over causing poor air flow to the fresh food section. You may need a service tech to check this part. If the evaporator is iced over, stopping air circulation, the button thermostat or defrost element may on the evaporator may be bad and could possibly reqiure a technician to replace it Check the first two things and let me know what you find and how it is doing after reseting the temp control. I will be happy to help you in any way I can..

Hi i have a zanussi zi 918\12k fridge freezer. the fridge is warm and the freezer is not working 100%. any ideas?


You more than likely have a bad relay or capacitor. Hopefully it is not the compressor. You may want to consider replacing it if is more than 10-12 years old. The other possibility is there is a leak in the freon.

I have a zanussu fridge


Re. Zanussi ZK87/46EFS Fridge Freezer

The same symptom occurred in our fridge freezer. The fridge compartment warmed up whilst the freezer compartment continued to keep temperature.

The cause of our problem was diagnosed as a frozen sensor that controls a flap, that controls the flow of cold air from the freezer compartment up into the fridge compartment. We were advised to power off the fridge freezer (removing all food and trays from the freezer unit first), and to leave it to defrost for 24hrs. We needed to place a few towels on the floor of the freezer compartment to soak up the melt water. After 24hrs we followed the power up instructions in the manual (versions are available online if you have lost yours). Within a few minutes it was obvious that the fridge compartment was being cooled – Problem solved :)

Zanussi fridge freezer - fridge not working


The defrost cycle is not happening like it should, that's what causes the block of ice (and poor air flow). If you have all that defrosted look at the defrost bi-metal, it usually is a small round disk with a couple wires coming out of it and it's clipped on the coils. When it's cold enough, it passes electricity to the heat elements, when it gets hot enough it "opens" and kills power to the heat elements. If that is bad (swollen cracked or bloated) and not passing electricity to the elements that's the problem. Another item would be the defrost timer itself, if it doesn't work (no clock motor turning) then it will never go into defrost. And the last and usually least expected failure would be the heat element themselves not working
