Danby DFF282WDB stopped cooling - light comes on - any troubleshooting we can do?


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You are locked into the defrost mode. This is when every 8-10 hours your unit will shut down for 20-30 minutes and your defrost heater comes on and defrost your freezer cooling (Evaporator) Coil. During this cycle everything shuts down except for the light.

Your controls are usually located on the top of your fresh food section. On the bottom of your controls, near the front, left hand side there is a round hole. This is where your defrost timer is located.

With a large flat head screw driver turn clockwise. You will hear a clicking sound. Turn slowly one click a time until your unit turns on. This unit will have to be replaced. Until it is replace manually turn it off every 10 hours for 20 minutes.

There is a light in my freezer. but, it doesn't get cold


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You are locked into the defrost mode. This is where every 8-10 hours your unit will completely shut down except for the lights. At this time your defrost heater turns on for 20-30 minutes to defrost the evaporator (Cooling) coils in your freezer.


You can manually turn your unit back on, until you get a new defrost timer. If you have a up right freezer your defrost timer is in the lower back. It is mounted on a metal plate.

With a flat head screw driver turn the stem slowly one click at a time until your unit turns on. Once a day repeat this process to put your unit back into defrost until the timer is replaced.

If you have a top freezer the defrost timer is located on the top of the fresh food section on the left. Do the same thing. The cost of the timer is about $30.00.

Send me your model number located on the side front wall of your fresh food section and I will proved you with the part number and walk you through the repair.

GE bottom freezer stopped cooling


The unit needs two fans running and good airflow, one fan outside cools the condensor coil and the other inside the unit blowing across the evaporator. The compressor must start up. The defrost timer stops everything and switches on a heating element to defrost the evaporator for several minutes. Please verify these conditions.

Top half of upright freezer is warm


Hello Karen;



My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.



The top half of your freezer is warm because your cooling (evaporator) coil is on the bottom.



With your unit there are generally two cooling problems:



1.) Frozen Drain - You freezer will go through a defrost cycle every 8-10 hours. When this occurs, everything shuts down with the exception of your lights. Your defrost heater turns on for about 20-30 minutes, defrost you cooling coil and them turns your unit back on.

Most common, is that you have a frozen drain. If you have a frozen drain, when your unit goes through the defrost cycle, if your drain is plugged then the condensate builds up on your cooling coil and restricts the air flow. Use a hair dryer and melt the ice.



2.) Freezer fan motor is bad - Your freezer fan motor may be bad. This is easily replaced.



Ok, Lets get it done. I have faith in you.

a.) Unplug your unit.

b.) With a screw driver remove the 6 screws holding the bottom cover. You control may be in the way.

c.) I know you can do this. Remove the back cover. Is you cooling coil blocked with Ice? Defrost with a hair dryer. Do not use metal tools, you may damage the cooling coil.



b.) After defrost, Is you cooling fan running. You can do this as well. There are only two contacts to remove and a ground wire. If it is not running purchase a new one.



I have faith in you Karen. Call me and I will walk you through this.

The freezer works but not the refigerator


Hi Jan - Typically if the compressor is running but only the freezer side is not cooling properly than more than likely the unit has a faulty temperature control. Try resetting the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and then turn the unit back on. An experienced service technician may need to further evaluate this issue if it was not resolved with the power reset to assist with the repairs.

Comes on kicks off no freezing


Hi Clifton - Make sure you have cleaned the unit's coils and behind the toe grille at the bottom/front of the unit. If the unit is not cooling, check to see if you hear or feel the compressor running. If you do not, contact a service professional immediately. If you do, and it is not cooling you may have a coolant leak or an issue with the internal sealed system of the unit and need a professional still. Try to clean it first however and make sure no vent on the inside of the unit is blocked by food items.

Freezer not freezing


Is it running? You might need to put your ear up to machine, to hear it, They run very quitely.
If not running, could be a bad cold control (thermostat), or defective relay and overload mounted on the compressor body.
If the compressor is running but no cooling, then you're in serious trouble unless,
The unit is 5 years old or newer. In that case you have factory warranty on what is called the sealed system. Contact the dealer in that case for service. Service should be free.

UNIT NOT COOLING(IS RUNNING WHEN PLUGGED)


only reason refrigerent may be needed is that there is a leak so adding more will achieve nothing. unlikely to be needed. i assume compressor is running. probable causes of no cooling are compressor fault or a blockage in the pipe sysyem. not diy
