Depends to the controller, read the parameter control settings and that will be your guide

    Unfortunately it is a rented property and there are no instructions. We don't even know the model number. There is a number dial in the fridge but no visible controls for the freezer temp.

SOURCE: Zanussi fridge freezer - fridge not working

The defrost cycle is not happening like it should, that's what causes the block of ice (and poor air flow). If you have all that defrosted look at the defrost bi-metal, it usually is a small round disk with a couple wires coming out of it and it's clipped on the coils. When it's cold enough, it passes electricity to the heat elements, when it gets hot enough it "opens" and kills power to the heat elements. If that is bad (swollen cracked or bloated) and not passing electricity to the elements that's the problem. Another item would be the defrost timer itself, if it doesn't work (no clock motor turning) then it will never go into defrost. And the last and usually least expected failure would be the heat element themselves not working

How do you lower the temperture in the refrigerator?


Letting perishables such as milk and eggs get warm doesn't just effect the taste; it can also allow bacteria to grow. It's essential to guard against this by adjusting your refrigerator temperature when necessary. Read below for how to do it.


1 Measure the temperature of you refrigerator. To measure the temperature in a fridge without a thermostat, just place a normal thermometer in a glass of water and place it inside the fridge. Check back 5 to 8 hours later to see what temperature the water is. This allows you to determine the temperature indirectly.

  • 2 Adjust the temperature. Once you've identified your refrigerator's temperature, it's time to change the settings. Turn the indicator to the left to make the temperature warmer, and to the right to make your refrigerator colder. It is important to only change the temperature gauge by one setting, regardless of how much you think it must be adjusted. This prevents freezing or thawing of food by making the change gradually.
  • 3 Check the temperature again after 6 to 8 hours. If it's the temperature you want, you're set. If not, move the dial one setting colder or warmer, depending on your needs. The ideal temperature for a refrigerator is 40 degrees. Wait at least 24 hours in between each adjustment to allow the fridge time to achieve that temperature.
  • 4 Prepare for changing seasons. Where you live can have a big influence on your fridge's temperatures. You may need to adjust the temperature lower in the summer and higher in the winter to maintain a constant 40 degrees. Those who live in moderate climates can worry less about weather effecting their refrigerator's temperature.
  • 5 Check the air vents. If you're having trouble achieving the right temperature, even after numerous adjustments, make sure the vents on the inside of the fridge aren't covered. This can prevent air flow, making it impossible to cool the refrigerator

  • Hope this would help you.


    Have a nice day!

    Defrosted freezer and turned back on. freezer seems to work but not fridge. back wall of fridge feels warm


    The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
    The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

    OR.
    If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

    check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

    You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

    Our fridge, a Zanussi Electrolux, temperature guage warning us something is faulty. It is not cold enough and struggling but still working. The freezer below is working O.K.


    Couple of possibilities.. If there is a fan or vent between the fridge & freezer, it may need to be adjusted.. Or the simplest thing is there might be one or two thermostats controlling the temperatures of both the fridge & freezer. Maybe you can adjust the temperature that way. Sometimes a door heater can cause an unexpected change in temperature.. Check to see if there's unusual heat around the door. Also, test the temperature using a different guage, as it may be faulty. The bottom line is that it could be low in refrigerant gas, if thats the case you need special guages, leak detector, charging cylinder etc. Quite hard to fix. Is the compressor running for long periods of time? If so, maybe it's never satisfied & the system does have a leak. Anyway, see if you can test (ice or spray can of freeze) the bulb or sensor on the end of the thermostat. Replace it if it's faulty, it's the easiest thing to fix. Rgds.

    Fridge does not cool


    lo1972

    Sounds like ice built up on the evaporator coils inside the freezer. thus hindering air flow to the refridgerator section. Is there ice build up in the freezer? This is assuming the temperature control didn't get changed inadverttily.

    Hope this helps
