Question about Daewoo Refrigerators
This appliance is a "back-up" to the main fr/fr in the house - this one is in the garage. Both fridge and freezer are warm - all food has defrosted and is soft to the touch - must have happened a few days ago. The fan behind panel in freezer does not spin - the light, unfortunately, blew some time ago so can't tell you if it would light up or not. Fuse checks OK. Seems that electrics have packed up. Wondered if the cold spell (minus 3 at night over last four days) has affected anything - frozen up something inside perhaps. Have just put a heater in the garage (fr/fr switched off - doors open) to see what happens over night. If anyone can help it would be much appreciated, please - as a pensioner I'm reluctant to spend lots of money in calling out expensive experts, but guess I might have to without your help. Mike

I had this problem with my ZX99. In my case it was caused by faulty temp sensors not making the defrost system kick into place. The defrost cycle works by heating an element for every week or so for a few minutes.

problem is probably that the evaporator is frozen up preventing circulation of air and the fan is jammed with ice.
remove the back panel inside the freezer. melt off the ice with a hairdryer taking care not to heat up any stats mounted on the pipework.
appliance will now work but this is a temporary repair. you must find out the cause of the ice build-up ie why not defrosting.
for starters, check the defrost heater and the thermal cut-out inseries with it.
let me know how you get on and what you find. make sure the fan is free to rotate.

The freezer will stay cold because a small
amount of cold air will be forced through the frost but that will not
be enough to make it up to the refrigerator portion. You can defrost
the unit by removing the metal panel and allowing the frost to melt.
Careful use of a hairdryer can speed up this process. This will likely
be a temporary fix. The root cause of excessive frost can be caused by
a bad door seal or a defective defrost circuit.
First check that the door seal is good by closing the door on a dollar bill at several points around the door, both on the freezer and refidgerator door. If you can pull the bill out with no resistance, the door is not making a good seal. Inspect the seal and make sure there isn't anything stopping the door from closing such as food, or a shelf not pushed in all the way.
If the door seal is good, the defrost system is likely defective. The defrost system has three main parts, the defrost heater, thermostat, and timer. None of these parts are particularly expensive, or difficult to replace you feel comfortable with repairing it yourself. If you can troubleshoot this by manually starting the defrost cycle. Let me know if you would like this procedure.
