SOURCE: frost in freezer compartment

It is possible to get this build up in the return vents.  Check seals for any possiblilty of warm air getting into the fridge.  Warm air getting in will cause this.  For now use a hair dryer or some hot water to clear the vents.  Let me know what you find.  Would appreciate a solved rating for expert advice.

defrost problem. advance defrost timer to defrost (till it shuts off) . remove freezer panel, check voltage and amps to heater,if heater is hot, replace timer, if heater is cold and no voltage, replace defrost limit switch. defrost all ice, carefully! with hair dryer, no poking with screwdriver.

SOURCE: Whirlpool runs, but freezer not freezing and frig not freezing

If the compressor is running but the unit is not cooling you may have lost the refrigerant.  See if the condenser coils at the back or bottom are hot.  If they are only warm then the refrigerant is low and can be recharged.  Service tech should check for leak in coolant system.

SOURCE: freezer not freezing but cools

is the freezer fan running? is there frost on the rear freezer wall if so it would be a defrost issue. if no frost on freezer rear panel it would sound like a bad compressor or sealedsystem leak.

SOURCE: Hello. I have this fridge-freezer,

Hi,
By your description you may have a compressor problem. The noise is makes if a buzzing noise when it struggle to start (locked up). The clicking noise would be the relay clicking out on overload to the compressor.
If your correct on the date, you will be better off replacing the unit then looking into the repair, a normal compressor change out can run over 500.00. Your best bet is to cut your losses and replace the unit before spending any more money on it.
Good Luck

How to adjust the thermostat


Hello Keith Wertheim,

Your freezer MAY-BE SET to COOL or your food might be blocking proper AIR-FLOW... CHECK these FIRST before
SETTING ANY CONTROLS...
Set freezing level first... (close below freezing)
THEN set refrigerator levels last...
(very close ABOVE freezing)

- Before setting ANY MILK, MEAT and/or VEGETABLE
CONTROLS are set to MIDRANGE...

The ENTIRE APPLIANCE should be ALLOWED TO
STABILIZE (run un-molested) for 24 - 72 hours BETWEEN ADJUSTMENTS.

PATIENCE works the best/fastest...

My apologies just because this has become a GLOBAL site... I'm TYPICALLY an unapologetic Fahrenheit (°F) kind of guy. Since this is actually a GLOBAL site
32 DEGREES is freezing point in Fahrenheit (°F)...
((WIKI conversion discussion at VERY BOTTOM)).

>> Depending one what refrigerator you HAVE...

And... your personal preferences...
Your refrigerator is set very CRITICALLY ABOVE
32 Degrees Fahrenheit (°F) = FREEZING...
but below 40 degrees
(for safely/longevity)
((Don't care about Celsius/Centigrade or Kelvin)).

Your owners manual directs you though SET-UP.
(all that is available on-line as well by searching your model+owners+manual).

Once you are SET-UP (level, square) ...
TEMPERATURE "SETTING" it is a bit of a balancing act
(I recommend you buy 2 ( refrigerator + freezer ))... between the freezer hardness (LARGE range of operation) and the REFRIGERATOR (very SMALL range of operation)

FREEZER working range -20 degrees up to FREEZING.

If it is "A Thermostat" one compartment will necessarily have to follow the OTHER... In MOST cases you simple DETERMINE
WHAT LEVEL OF HARD-NESS you FIRST WANT in your
ICE CREAM... (freezer adjustment first).

INTERESTING...

I have JUST DISCOVERED... a new TWO EVAPORATOR
design ... More fun.

What could the problem be; my refrigerator not cold but the freezer is freezing?


If your refrigerator freezer compartment is cold, but the refrigerator compartment is warm--It could be a defrost problem. When a defrost problem occurs, it is usually the fault of one or more of three basic parts: defrost timer/adaptive defrost control, freezer thermostat or the defrost heater element. See in detail with illustrations how to dx and fix: Refrigerator Defrost Parts

Freezer does not freeze anymore


the freezer usually has the condensor coil sandwiched ilong the outer cabnet and in the back the lines come out in to the compressor compartment as a tech i have found the steel line rusts where the epoxy coating is no longer in tact so i would say you most likely have leaked out the refrigerant

The top part of the freezer compartment is warming up and setting off the alarm. Liebherr 7080 207-01 model


I also had defrost problem with Liebherr 7080 207-01. I removed freezer back panel, I defrosted all ice with hair dryer, but the freezer is not done for manually defrosting!!! You may have problems removing the back panel (I was not able to remove it with a screwdriver and i decided to pull it beaking the plastics supports and thean I put it back. It is a shame !!! Now it is working much better. I think this will be my last Liebherr freezer!

The cold control needs replacing. Thats the knob with the numbers that turn the Ref OFF and ON.
What I do is call my local Appliance Parts Store with my model no. They are extremely helpful .
Get freezer and ref thermometer. Ref is probably too cold.
Freezer should be 0 to 10 degrees. Ref 33 to 35
