Question about Fisher and Paykel Active Smart E522B Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
The channel (in the fridge compartment) that collects the water and then drains it is freezing up (including the drain) and causing any additional water to overflow from the channel and run down the back face of the fridge and then freeze under the vege bins. I have just defrosted the fridge but it looks like it is going to do it again. I did notice (the first time it froze) that a horizontal steel bar had slipped down from behind the plastic panel above the channel and was touching the water/ice in the channel but I have now pushed this up behind the panel out of view.
While staying with a friend that had this problem we assaulted the fridge. Pulling everything we could apart. After finding this link http://www.stokes-aus.com.au/StokesAP/Manufacturer_Info/FP/FRIDGES/517579%20%20Series%20R%20N308R,308XR,325TR,369BR,375TR,395BR,400HR,4.pdf which had a parts list similar to the fridge we had. Pulled out the Defrost timer paragon located next to the compressor. After giving it a good shake it started making ticking sounds again. It appears that it is semi-faulty in our case and had stopped working.

Hi I have an active smart fridge/freezer - the green lights are working, have replaced both fans one in product compartment and the one in freezer compartment - door seals have been replaced - Even the sensor has been replaced. freezer works but the fridge wont get cold and the both fans won't work.
fridge was turned off for one month due to a hurricane we had last year and power failure. I have replaced everything I have been told to replace.During the hurricane the fridge was beepiong and green lights kept flashing so I turned it off.
Can someone please tell me how to fix it.

Is your evaporator clipped back properly? If not you can dispense with the decorative evaporator cover trim and just order 2 clips (part number 874401) from F&P and push them in firmly (pushing the bottom of the evaporator plate back at the same time), then the water will drain down into the collector as it is supposed to.

I have exactly the same problem. On top of that the freezer is only cooling to -4C. No idea why.

My F&P did the same thing for ages and ages. I tried cleaning out the drain hole many times, even with warm water - still refroze water down the back of the fridge and underneath the veggie bins. The advice from fridge repairers was it needed regassing but can't be regassed though because it's the old type of gas which isn't used any more. Repairer's further advice - take it to the dump!
