SOURCE: Food is defrosting in my hotpoint frost free fridge/freezer

Can you hear the compressor running? Is the fan inside the freezer running? It could be that a wire connection has come loose during the move. Was the fridge laid on it's side during the move? If so you probably have compressor oil restricting the refrigerant system. If compressor and fan are running you will probably need a qualified refrigeration tech to check it out.

SOURCE: Beko frost free fridge freezer,

sounds similar to mine. Find the source of the bubbling noise (defrost timer at the bottom), remove the cap and advance the timer with a screwdriver. If you fridge starts working, your defrost timer is faulty.

The defrost timer should be inside the refrigerator where the cold control is.

SOURCE: FREEZER ICED OVER, LOWER COMPARTMENT NOT COOLING

Well, if the service person said the defroster is not the problem, there must be a good reason. But, I would go with a faulty defrosting system. Most likely suspects are the defrost timer and the defrost heating element.

My kic fridge have 2 compartments. Freezer and fridge. only the fridge part dont work help please


The freezer is where the heat is removed from the box and cold air should circulate from the freezer into the refrigerator section. Something must be blocking the vent between the two. There is only one cooling unit; it cools the freezer and is also vented into the fridge for sub-freezing temperatures.

Crystal cold lpg fridge the fridge part works fine but the freezer only cools to the same temp as the fride compartment


The freezer should go down to about zero degrees. If your unit is constantly running it is because the internal temp has not activated the thermostat to turn off the compressor. Lower than normal refrigerant levels could account for this. Also to be checked out is the evaporator coil not being frozen over with a block of ice - the latter is caused by an inoperable self defroster - this causes the freezer to not cool properly and raise all internal temps.

If not a self defrosting unit, defrost the unit and restart unit. It will cool properly until the evaporator freezes up again. How fast it freezes up depends on how often the freezer door is opened and how much moist warm air enters the freezer compartment.

I have a KIC 2 door fridge freezer. The freezer works but not the fridge part. It was working till a few days ago. The evaporator was frozen so i switched it off to defrost it. Since then it doesnt co


Check that your evaporator fan is operating. If it is, then take the rear freezer shield off and blow warm air down the cooling tubes to defrost the tubes. One of more of your cooling tubes is frosted up.

Hi I have a very old KIC fridge freezer the freezer is cold and works well the fridge is not icing up on the back board in the fridge everything going off in the fridge what could be causing this?


Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------
