Question about Freezers

1 Answer

Freezer switces off sporadically after periods of 20 to 10 days.

Bauknecht GKEA 305 OPTIMA
After 3 years use from new the freezer switched off and unfroze during our absence. There had been no interruption of the mains supply and the dot of light on the control panel showed that the freezer was still connected. It restarted and ran for 9 days then the indicator panel showed a flashing series of 3 lines like - - one above the other interspersed with a rapid indication of the set temperature with a 1 second cycle and loud click. The freezer was disconnected and allowed to warm to -12°C and then reconnected and started and is now behaving normally again and has reached the set temperature. It responds normally to changes in the set temperature..

If this is a frost free refrigerator have the defrost timing unit checked out. It may well be sticking in the defrost position.

From what I read, the "L." that you see on the control panel indicated that the controls have been locked. According to the manual if you hold down the "alarm reset" button for 3 seconds the "L." will disappear allowing you to control the temperature again. I don't as of yet know what is causing your overall problem though...

    Can't help I'm afraid, but we have exactly the same problem with exactly the same model. Ours did work for nearly 2 years, but recently only works with the boost button pressed in. I suspect the thermostat is not working as the boost button over-rides the thermostat to give max cooling. Your freezer is new so get it exchanged; it certainly doesn't need to be full to work!

    Sounds like the refrigeratnt has leaked out. It is not worth repairing. The only other possibility is the cold control but I would not buy one until a servicer has looked at it.
