Question about Refrigerators

Open Question

Liebherr premium no frost fridge feezer problem started with the freezer having loads ice on back wall, and the drainage hole in fridge blocking up constantly - so bottom of fridge always flooded with water. Man came and defrosted it completely, and steamed thro the drainage hole. it worked but the temperature wasn't right after that. then after a couple of days the freezer defrosted completely. Then he replaced the circuit board in top of the fridge (cost me nearly three hundred pounds for that!). The freezer seems to work ok now but it keeps flashing up F4. Temp occasionally flashes up 4 for fridge and minus 18 for freezer but the alarm goes off constantly. only way i can turn it of is to witch whole thing off for a bit, then restart - that gives us twenty minutes peace after switching on a gain. aaagh please help!

    I have a 30 Liebherr fridge and I have been having the same problem as everyone else-- frost builds up on the back wall, especially in warm weather, then the temperature jumps up and the alarm goes off, often in the middle of the night. The Liebherr support people have been useless. They claim they have never heard of the problem and that they will pay for the parts to correct it but I have to pay for the service. Many other people I know in NYC have exactly the same problem. DO NOT BUY A LIEBHERR FRIDGE! Its an inferior product at a premium price.

SOURCE: Freezer ok fridge warm (15 degrees)

You have a hotpoint mistral f/f i take it in silver..

Check to see if the fan is running at the bottom on the back of the fridge its next to the compressor behind the panel ...
if the compressor is running and the fan is not then your fault is the fan..

IF the fan is running then its the sensors...

These are located in the freezer section, pull out the draws and remove the panel behind it.... six screws.......... you will c threes plugs at the top ledt hand side.. the yellow one is for the fridge the green one for the freezer.... replace both if your freezer is not working...

Also just below the freezer door there is a panel remove the panel and use a vaccumm to clean the fluff that has built up on the coils..

hope this helps if you need anymore help dont hesitate to ask...

by the way the sensors are called evap thermistors...

SOURCE: GE (Mode TBX21ZLG) Frige has water collecting in bottom

if there is definite frost which has some depth to it, you may have a bad defrost timer. look for the timer usually inside kick plate in the front of unit. it'where you clean the condenser coils. with a flat head screwdriver or your finger turn the knob until the unit shuts off. if the fridge doesn't come on in 1/2 hour you have a bad timer motor and buy a defrost timer. if the unit comes on in 20 minutes or so the timer is good and you have to look elseware possibly the condenser coils and fan which are near the bottom clean coils anyway because it's good practice to keep them clean to save energy. the fan either works or it doesn't make sure refridgerator is running to check this. anything else you have to defrost the evaporater in the back wall of freezerthis could take some time but after it's defrosted turn timer to off a see if the heater is red in color if not then with a multi meter with the unit unplugged test across heater for continuity on heater . klixon and hi-temp cut out. good luck. if you are not feeling safe call a repairman

We have the same and I think it is because the freezer door bounces open when we shut the fridge door. Then the freezer compartment ices up, the fan clogs up with ice and cannot blow cold air into the fridge, and the fridge gets warm and the milk goes off.
Solution? We have bought one of those child safety clips (search for fridge safety clip or lock) to hold the freezer door closed.
Simple design error. Expected better from Bosch :-(

Why does ice form on the floor under the freezer drawer? [Refridge with bottom freezer model 79578092


Freezer /fridge water/ice in fridge and or freezer

Usually due to CONDENSATION due to bad door seals or a plugged evaporator drain line? Can use a soft flexable tubing and very hot water to clean it out. Bad door seals usually need replacement, but u can use a blow dryer and something to pry it closer to the door wall while blowing hot air on to it. To create a seal, to test for bad door seals place a dollar bill in between the door and wall of fridge where it closes. Then slide out the dollar bill with door closed. It should offer some resistance and not be easy to pull out.
Most all fridges have a drain. Look inside your fridge for a "V" shaped channel with a small hole. This hole leads to a tube and a small pan which sits on top of your refrigerator's compressor. The defrost cycle causes water to run into the channel, down the tube, and then it generally evaporates with the heat of the hot condenser/compressor.
However, if that tube is clogged with food crumbs, particles , debris etc, you will have to clear it to get back to a normal mode of operation. A toothpick, pipecleaner, straw or a cotton bud can often do the trick.
Even a frost free freezer will still ice up at times in the areas away from the heated defrost area and the drain line can freeze. This icing causes the pipe work to the compressor to ice over or sweat and cause a puddle. Or if the drainage has frozen over, it will need to be de-iced. ( usually the line is under the freezer bottom plate covering. Towards the back of the unit) And there is another inside the fridge area also.
Give the freezer a good overnight defrost until it's totally clear of ice in addition to making sure the drain is clear to the pan at the back and then restart the freezer.

I have a lieebherr fridge freezer model ctnes4653 and i have noticed that ice is building up at the back of the fridge (before it used to drain down the back of the fridge and evaporate). i thought of...


As you had done switch off the fridge. now after the frost had cleared off , keeping the fridge a little away from the wall switch on. But only after you have checked for the thermostat to be set to normal, the fan working fine as well as the timer switching on the auto defrost. So look out for the compressor to shut off when the thermostat reaches the limit, if this wont work then the ocmpressor will run and result in heavy frost. so it can be that the wires to the thermocouple is broken or damages due to frost. so you can open freezer compartment and confirm on inspection of the wiring for any breaks.repeat if frost appears till you correct and confirm. If you are calling a repairman keep this mind so as to get an idea of the work, to have an estimation of the work. Hope you try this out. Good day

Fridge is freezing food


I have had the same issue with thick frost/ice at the back of my Fridge and almost called an engineer and considered replacing it.. BUT you don't want to so that: Do this:

1. Take freezer draws out and empty fridge so it is lighter and easier to move Fridge Freezer out
2. Chuck some warm soapy water down the drainage hole in back of fridge to ensure it is not blocked
3. Pull the plug. Leave it off for 5-10 mins.
4. Plug it in, reload her
5. Next morning.. perfect all back to normal

I think the unplugging just resets the thermostat and gets your machine back to life.

The freezer freezes up and no air circulates to the refrigerator. The Fan motor is working.

Our freezer and fridge or not keeping cold enough


This can be caused by the drain hole below freezer coil being blocked by ice. You MUST remove all ice in drain under freezer coil. Use turkey baster to squirt hot water into hole and use hairdryer to defrost. Possible defrost thermostat is defective. Unit never goes into defrost, ice forms on coil and in floor or back of freezer. After defrosting may work OK for a week or two but gradually gets warmer because ice is blocking ports where cool air gets to refrig. May also have water in refrig box. Can also be caused by defective defrost timer.

Water pours down the back(Internally) ofmy Liebherr Frost Free Fridge freezer.


It is most likely a broken water tank in back wall of refrigerator section remove the crisper drawers you will see the tank it holds about 1.5 gal of water to keep it chilled for the dispenser. check all around it with the water on and someone getting water out of the dispenser at the same time check the seams closely. you should find the leak there let me know if not we may have to look into the water inlet valve

The refrigerators accumulate ice


the fridge distrubutes cold by air movement. A overstuffed fridge can have trouble. There is a fan that blows a controlled amount of freezer air over to the food side, altho when this goes you usually have frozen freezer and food too warm. Make sure the air is allowed to move.

Refridgerator freezer GE


Frost is due to outside air leaking into unit. Check on back wall to see if hole for ice maker fill tube is still plugged. If not and you have no ice maker cover hole with tape. Also look for water or ice build up in bottom of freezer or ref. sections. May have a plugged drain. Let me know what you find.
