Yesterday my beko fridge freezer was making loud gurgling noises all day and last night i realized the freezer had completely defrosted, and the fridge has stopped cooling. this morning i got on this website, and tried switching it off at the wall like one user suggested, but it didn't help. the fan is running in the freezer, it is blowing cool air, but nothing is happening. help!!

    I would like to know if there is any other options available to try before i pay someone to come out and fix it! :)

  • jennie_lynne May 17, 2009

    the air coming out of the fan in the freezer is just cool, not cold. would the heater be the large black thing at the bottom/back of the refrigerator?

  • jennie_lynne May 17, 2009

    do you mean on the black metal coil on the very back of the fridge freezer, or behind the white plastic panel inside the freezer. and what would i need to do to fix it for myself, is it an easy fix or too risky? i am pretty hands on, if that helps.

  • jennie_lynne May 17, 2009

    do i need to order a new part? if so what is it called? where can i find step-by-step instructions?

  • jennie_lynne May 17, 2009

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I am so grateful for the information. Even though I will still need to pay a technician, at least now I can rest assured that I will not be ripped off! It is such a relief to know that I don't have that worry now. This website is fantastic and the service was above and beyond. And I do not give out praise very easily!!!

    Forever Grateful,
    J Davis

Yes you will have to order a part .that part is called evaporater coil.it is located at the back of the freezer.that can be obtained by inner side of the freezer scetion.you will have to remove the screws from the freezer section which are inside the freezer section.many a times they are hidden behind the rubber butches.
you can get the evaporater coil at
www.repairclinic.com
but as for the suggestion.i would like to suggest you that reaching till evaporater coil is very easy as you just have to remove some four to six screws,but removing the old evaporater coil and fitting the new is bit hard.as its a coil it gets heated.if not connected propery ,two things can happen
1)either the coil will not at all heat.
or
2)the coil will over heat.
in both conditions the freezer unit will get burnt off and a short circuit can happen if the evaporater coil is not connected properly.
the evaporater coil is also called heating thermostat.they are one and the same.
the cost of this part is near to $50 plus the fittinf service charge of the technician as it will be safe and secure.
thanks.
please do rate the solution.keep updated.thank you for using fixya.

If you are running, cold air is coming out, and the fan is running, then your problem is your heater that defrosts the system staying on all the time and not shutting off. Which means that it needs to be replaced. Now you can do this yourself if you are a handy person and good with working alittle bit blind. If not then I would recommend that you have a tech come out and work on it and replace the part. Can you tell me if the air in the freezer is REALLY cold or just cool?

    No, that is your compressor, the heater is on the coil which is behind the panel in the freezer compartment. it is one thin copper wire almost looks like a tube that is about 4 feet in length and straight with noo bends

    The plastic panel in the freezer. It is easy to fix. But you need to make sure that you follow the instructions step by step or you will cause alot more problems then you want. I would say if you are techy enough go ahead and do it. If you get stuck then call someone

Freezer gurgles


    • Give it mouth wash lol

      Check the water valve on the back of the refrigerator if it has an ice maker. Make sure the valve is turned completely on and not constricting the flow of water to the refrigerator via the water supply line. You might also hear a simultaneous buzzing sound when the gurgling noise occurs. In some refrigerator models, this filling process is on a timer, and you might hear the buzzing and/or gurgling every 15 minutes or so.


    • Check the water supply line for leaks or damage. You might see a puddle of liquid on the floor. If air is pulled into the water line as the refrigerator is pulling in water, that can create a gurgling noise. Replace the damaged hose yourself, or contact an appliance repair technician for assistance

      • f he refrigerator to feel a slight vibration. This is probably the compressor processing the refrigerant, which is a liquid. This flow of refrigerant can produce a gurgling sound, and it is normal. However, a simple way to reduce this noise is to make fewer trips to the fridge. When you open the door, you let hot air in, which means the compressor has to work harder (and gurgle the refrigerant more) to cool things back down.

    • Wait while the refrigerator completes its defrosting cycle if you hear water dripping and gurgling in the freezer area. When the heating coil turns on, the melted water from the frost flows down to a drain pan for evaporation to take place. The defrost process usually takes about 30 minutes. This is automatic and cannot be prevented in most refrigerators. Keep the closed to try to prevent unnecessary frost buildup.


    • Wait while the water equalizes in the refrigerator if you hear a gurgling sound when shutting the door. This is normal and is a result of air being forced through the drain tube. The gurgling can last several seconds but should eventually dissipate this usually happens with old fridges upgrade its a good investment

Last night, the freezer door on my older GE Profile fridge got left slightly open. This morning, it was making a loud noise and some of the food inside was starting to thaw. I turned it off for awhile...


The door being left open would have caused frost to form around the evaporator fan motor and that would be the source of your noise.

If the lights are still working then it is probable in defrost, wait about 30-45 min and see if it turns back on. If not then you might have a different problem.

What is the model number for your fridge? The model number is normally in the fridge on the right hand side.

Sorry to hear about your problem. Sounds like you have a defrost issue. Hence your unit is not defrosting. All of this apply's if your freezer side has ice on it. If not. you have other issues
Here is a list of some things that can go wrong.
1. Defective heat coil
2. Defective defrost timer
3. Defective defrost sensor
You should call a service company to resolve your issue.

My mothers beko fridge freezer making bubbling sound


Sounds like the evaporator fan is doing its job. Nothing to worry about. Good hearing is a blessing all fridges make different sounds some click loud while others gurgle loud. Some pop and snap. Till I got my hearing aids I didn't know mine ran so loud and clicked.
