Fisher and paykel refrigerator - remove left side freezer slide rail panel

Fixing the ice sensor lead in the freezer section of refrigerator. The instructions clearly say remove left hand slide rail panel... there only "appears" to be one screw holding it in but I can't get the rails themselves off to check and I don't want to break anything.. so close - I can see the broken wire an dhave the replacement part..

    Hi, the instructions are to vague. There is only one screw that holds the panel in place. Remove this screw only. Now I suggest using two large flat screwdrivers between the end of the side panel and the back of the inside of the fridge. The side panel slides out towards the front of the fridge. Do not try to remove the metal drawer slides.

The sensor in the freezer has come loose


Hi,

It belongs under the Ice tray to the Ice maker. Without it the unit can not detect temperature of the ice tray to cycle or function as needed.

I hope this helps.

HI,
Do you have frost in the freezer too? Was the door left open and caused the rails to freeze with ice? Normally this would be the cause of the problem you described. The only fix tis to remove all the frost and ice from the rails to work properly and find the cause of the air leak that created the problem in the first place.
I hope this helps

Very possible the door was accidently left open for a period of time. When that happens, moisture latches on to different areas which inturn creates ice build up. In short, do a good defrost and then restart freezer again.

How do you manually start timer on fisher paykel


We disconnected the refrigerator and took the back of the freezer apart. There we noticed ice had built up on the coils. After removing all the food, we let the freezer defrost for 3.5 hours. Then we connected it, and it started to cool down immediately. After 1 1/2 to 2 hours, the refrigerator was down below 40 degrees. All food was replaced, and now the refrigerator is working properly All of this was down to the Fisher Paykel Model E522BRM.

Fisher Paykel Fridge Freezer


I have a Fisher and Paykel E442B upside down, which is a very similar model, and I just fixed the same problem (temperature was around -4C even though I set the fridge temperature as warm as possible).

The cause of my problem was excessive ice build up on the side of the evaporator coil (which is in the back of the freezer compartment behind the rear plastic panel). I had the same problem around a year or so ago, so I expect it to be a regular occurence. To defrost the coil, I removed all the drawers in the freezer, and the plastic insert by pulling out the bottom of the panel out and rotating it upwards until it released at the top. There are a couple of snap-in tabs holding the panel in, so with a bit of pulling they released. The tabs are either side of the slot at the bottom of the panel.

I then supported the panel horizontally on the top shelf so that I didn't have to disconnect the thermostat wire and the circulating fan wire.
52de81a.jpg With a small fan heater set on low, aimed roughly at the ice buildup on the left hand side of the evaporator coil, I defrosted the ice built up. This took around 2 hours or so. Then put it all back together and it worked fine.

I'm not sure why the ice build up on the side caused the problem, but presumably it interferes with the proper flow of cold air to the fridge compartment.

If you don't seem to have ice build up like I did, then it could be a thermostat problem, or a fan problem (a symptom of which would be fridge being colder at the bottom than at the top).

We have a fisher and paykel fridge and freezer. The freezer section is at the bottom and it has started leaking around the bottom and I've noticed the bottom of the freezer becomes very icy very quickly. ...


not the seals. the drain is blocked. take the rear panel off inside the freezer and yoy will probably see an ice build up at the bottom. melt off with a hairdryer and follow up with hot water till water flows away freely. if you have ice build up all over the pipework, then you have a defrost system fault and get back to me
