    Fisher & Paykell active Smart Fridge about 3 years old.  Has been moved twice in its lifetime.  Freezer works, fridge warm, a little bit of frost around the vents at the back of inside the freezer.  Fridge will start beeping in the middle of the night or at anytime.  Beeping stops when you press one of the temperature adjustment buttons.  Lights correlating with the temperature buttons keeps flashing on both fridge or freezer options.  seals good.  Compressor seems to be working ok.  Not dirty at all around the back of the unit.

    I have the same problem. Freezer part is working but fridge part is warm. HELP!

    Hi. I have a similar (the same?) problem. Technician came and took off the cover inside the freezer and showed me that the defroster had burnt out (and destroyed some of the freezer lining - about 10 cms). I'm now waiting for him to get parts and something to repair the insulation.
    I'm less than impressed that this expensive fridge has such a problem after only four years! And I am worried about the extent of obvious burning inside my freezer - completely invisible until the internal panel is removed.

    Waiting for the fix is annoying since the thing beeps about every 8 - 10 hours!

    I could guess there is a fan issue in the fridge compartment (freezer fan ok, hence the freezer getting cold). I just replaced my fan after having the same fault - however, I used a cheap and nasty PC fan after getting quote for $79 for a replacement F&P. The fridge now gets cold, but I"m getting the alarms sounding (in the middle of the night!, it's like it knows what time it is) - have another fan now that might fix it...

Firstly you must totally defrost the unit, turn it off empty it & leave the doors open for at least a day or overnight, if the fans are working then ice is blocking the return air duct.

Whirpool wgi fridge freezer, fridge not cooling?


Most frideges get all their cooling from the freezer. There will be a fan and duct in the back of the freezer that pushes cold air down into the fridge. If the duct is blocked with ice or the fan motor has quit. Your freezer will work fine but the fridge will barely cool at all. Check that the fan runs when the compressor is running, ( turn both temp knobs to the highest cooling and leave door open until comp. comes on). If the fan runs your duct is plugged. If not you need a new " Freezer Fan Motor". Most are simple to replace and cost around $100.00.

I have a fridege freezer - model no: E522B. The light inside the fridge has gone. The fridge and the top part of the freezer are not working. the bottom part of the freezer is cold.


FREEZER FAN MOTOR MAY NEED REPLACED. THE EASIEST WAY IS TO TAKE OFF THE BACK PANEL IN FREEZER AND REMOVE THE FAN
MOTOR, TAKE IT TO THE NEAREST APPLIANCE PARTS STORE WITH YOUR MODEL NO.
EASY JOB.

Freezer nice but fridge is very warm


When fridge or freezer compressor is running but contents are not cold, feel the black radiator with the hand. Basically if the radiator is cold there is no gas or a bad blockage or a leak.( Radiator must be nice and warm on one 1/3 of its length.).

I have an active smart fridge freezer. The freezer seems ok but the fridge has stopped working but it doesent get cold. how can it be fixed. It is only 18 months old.


Check fan in the freezer
Also check auto defrost (ice on the freezer coils anot allowing
air to the fridge.)
If so go to appliance parts store to learn the parts to fix auto defrost.
If this was helpful please rate me.
