Question about Bush HD220RWN (6 cu. ft.) Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Bush HD220RWN Problem

My Bush HD220RWN is not refrigerating anything, nor is the freezer freezing. We had a guy come to look at it and he advised to buy a new fridge since the cost of repairing this one will be over 100 GBP, probably more and a new fridge can be had for under 200 GBP. Does anyone have any advice on anything I can check or change myself before I throw this out? Thx

Good Morning Debbie,

I understand the freezer on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS3R5EMB, will not make ice or keep anything frozen in the summer months. First, I suggest lowering the temperature in your freezer and allowing 24 hours for the temperature to stabilize. Secondly, check the seal around the door to make sure it has not been compromised in any way. Lastly make sure that you are not opening the freezer door frequently or leaving it open for long periods of time. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your refrigerator status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Fridge stops to defrost and wont start again unless i do it manualy by turning the timer with a screw driver.

A mechanical timer defrost cycle is approximately 23 minutes, and it occurs at intervals of between 6 and 12 hours depending on the timer. If it does not come out of the defrost cycle on it's own, your timer can be bad. Be sure the heater actually comes on while in defrost. Also be sure the evaporator (freezer) fan is on when in the cooling cycle. If both of these occur. Replace the timer. It's important that the timer be replaced with an identicle timer.....6 hour for 6 hour, and that the 4 numbers by the electrical contacts be in the same order. In addition, if there is a loose wire from the timer motor with a slotted contact at the end, make sure you follow the instructions as to where it goes.

Hi there, i think i have a falt with the defrost timer cause when the fridge stops to defrost it dose not start up again, i have to do it manualy by turning the timer with a screw driver. i was wondering...

This can be a faulty timer unit a the STEPPER MOTOR must have failed in the gear linked to get the switch contacts to work again.
You can replace after you check carefully for damaged gear within which could be SLIPPING at a point and so not moving forward unless with assistance till it comes back to the same spot.

The freezer side not freezing just cool, the

Open freezer door, pull food off shelves on lower half of inside freezer and look if you have frost building up on the back wall of freezer. If you do then you have a defrost heater or thermostat possible gone bad.

Advise if you have frost build up and I will advise on how to check it.

Freezer not freezing properly

You have a manual defrost freezer . Ice build up of over 1/2" can act like insulation on wires . If you have no frost build up , and runs constantly , then compressor or refrigerant leak is the problem . Advise to replace freezer . Only 2 parts on manual defrost freezer...compressor and cold control . Compressor will not run if bad cold control . If you have a leak , very expensive to have repaired .

Freezer is over-freezing

the possible cause is the temperature sensor or thermostat is not working, maybe its switch is stuck up on ON position, it looks like a wire attached to the area where ice is building up, it is connected to a switch to turn off the compressor thus controlling the operation of your freezer. replace with new thermostat will solve the prob.
