Question about Zanussi ZX99 / 5 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Hi, My Zanussi fridge freezer's top fridge stopped working. Few weeks ago the fridge light stopped working and we noticed the fridge getting less cooler and now the fridge is not working at all, but bottom freezer is working fine.
The defrost cycle is not happening like it should, that's what causes the block of ice (and poor air flow). If you have all that defrosted look at the defrost bi-metal, it usually is a small round disk with a couple wires coming out of it and it's clipped on the coils. When it's cold enough, it passes electricity to the heat elements, when it gets hot enough it "opens" and kills power to the heat elements. If that is bad (swollen cracked or bloated) and not passing electricity to the elements that's the problem. Another item would be the defrost timer itself, if it doesn't work (no clock motor turning) then it will never go into defrost. And the last and usually least expected failure would be the heat element themselves not working
