Candy Frostfree Fridge freezer, model CPCA240FFK

Hi, I have a Candy Frostfree Fridge freezer, model no. CPCA240FFK, which is now just over 5 years old. The light inside the fridge has gone, along with the 'Super' green lights on the front panel, and now the fridge is freezing everything. The freezer seems to be working ok as everything is still frozen. The manual says their should be a on/off switch or button to reset the thermostat , but I cannot see this anywhere. Any help would be appreciated?

    please advise how I confirm that the compressor is automatically going on and off? and where is the thermostat located? I am assuming an engineer will need to do this, as I am not qualified. Additionally, I have also been advised to defrost the fridge for 24 hours.....regardless of the fact that it is frost free. Please advise.

1st of all conferm that the compressor is automatically (through Thermostate) going to ON/OFF or not, if it automatically goes OFF, i sugges its OK. and if not its no problum. (Minimum 4 hours rest is Must of a compressor, u can maunally OFF it for daily 4 hours Sleep)

Take Care

I have a candy frostfree fridge freezer GL90AA; it never switches off,i.e. I can hear it run all the time.


If it is not reaching the cut off temp because
the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.
How to check everythinghttp://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php


You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.
