Question about Daewoo Refrigerators

Open Question

Our Daewoo NoFrost MultiFlow fridge-freezer has just stopped working - seems to have lost electric power - any ideas, please?

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

    Although I'm told 15 "experts" had viewed my request, above, I have not received any expert advice. However, I seem to have solved my own problem! By warming-up the garage over a 24 hour period, and then switching the fr/fr back on, the unit started working again. So, should anybody have a similar problem in the future ..... try this solution.

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.

Daewoo No frost multiflow fridge freezer. Freezer works fine. Light comes on in fridge but it is not getting cold. What can we do? Is it broken or is there a magic switch somewhere? many thanks


NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if FREEZER CONTROL is turned WARMER WHICH MAKES THE REF COLDER AND VICE-VERSA. SEE?
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
But is probably a common defrost problem The ice build up
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
Make sure back cover is on the fridge. Some take them off and throw them away.
make one out of cardboard if its gone, using the holes of the old one.

Hi, During the recent Brisbane floods, my Daewoo fridge/freezer was turned off for 8days, as we had no power. Since power has been resumed, the freezer does NOT freeze the top 3 shelves in the...


You poor fridge has developed a refrigerant leak.
While the fridge was working before the flood the refrigerant was cold and din't escape. While it was off the metal expanded, opened up the leak and let most of the refrigerant escape.
You will need an ARCTICK approved appliance repairer to fix that problem.

I have a samsung fridge freezer model no RSH1DTMH and the fridge will not go lower than 13degrees and the freezer and water dispenser seem ok. The fridge freezer is only 3 years old. Any ideas/


We had the same fault on our Samsung American style RSH1DBRS fridge freezer as lots of other people seem to be having. After doing lots of research, we found the best solution seemed to be to buy a repair kit from Appliance DIY Repairs. The instructions were fantastic and the installation was a doddle. Excellent service & well priced.
