    The drawer just pulls very hard as if the guides may be wearing out. Our has not actually frozen shut. Drawer guides also are noisy.

Check guides for icing, is it door seal is good? Any frozen moisture on freezer walls and other parts? If door seal bad - replace it.

Fisher & Paykel dish drawers. Bottom drawer only opens about 16cms

Take out all drawers, then replace all, bottom drawer first. If it still sticks, check case drawer guides & bottom of drawer above it. Also check to see if bottom drawer shape is warped.

Bottom basket


The manual does not say specifically if the basket can be removed or not, but the basket is on rollers. If you can pull the drawer out and tilt upwards, the basket may release. Otherwise, the basket may not be designed to be removed.

How do I replace a broken ice full guide?

The ice maker is easy to remove once you get the drawer off the slides. There are two plastic clips located near the back of the drawer that attach it to the slides. Pop those out and lift the drawer out. Pull off the plastic ice maker cover to expose the mounting screws. Remove the two screws holding the assembly to the top of the freezer, then slide the ice maker forward about 1/2 inch. It will drop down a few inches, allowing you to unplug the wiring connector and remove it as a unit. The ice full guide is then easily removed.

Water is pouring from the dispenser drawer, how do I fix this

First check the drain hose behind the machine. It must not enter more than 4" to prevent siphoning situation. If that looks okay check for a sock or similar item between basket and tub. They seem to like to stick close to the dispenser drawer when they get in there and often cause the symptom you are describing. Make sure to check the drain hose between tub and drain pump for objects. When checking pump basket, stick a finger in and feel around the propeller of the pump. If it feels at all wobbly or bent to one side the pump may need to be replaced. If that doesn't solve your problem you may want to check this video:

It's a bit more involved and i about went to sleep listening to the guy but he's informative.
Good Luck.

Well, that wire is likely the cause of your issue, somebody probably bent it, and now it gets caught on the door or a basket or a food item or what have you, and since it cannot move, the ice maker will not make ice.

Fisher paykel heater plate replacement

The problem is the thermal fuse in the bottom drawer which shuts of the controller power. But the thermal fuse is part of the heater assembly. So you will have to replace the lot.

It is not an easy procedure to replace the heater assembly as the whole system is intervined with the pump and motor components.

You will have to disconnect all wiring and hoses from the base of the drawer once you have it out after removing the transparent plastic wiring cover.

Then you have to release the locking ring to remove the pump and motor assembly along with the heater plate.

Hope this helps. please rate the solution if ok otherwise drop a comment.

The top wide wired basket is just a utility drawer. The next wide drawer near the bottom is the high humidity crisper drawer. I believe the bottom two ones are just utility drawers.

remove the small basket from each drawer and lift up the removable plastic cover and take the drain filters out , empty them of food by products and try it again.. If you've never cleaned them then that's your problem with the drain process.. Hope that helps.
