Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Westinghouse - 'Aurora' - 390 litre Cyclic Defrost. I want to drill a 13mm hole in the side this fridge, so as to run a beer line from the inside of the fridge to the outside of the fridge. Apart from the wiring to the door operated interior light - is there any other wiring or refrigeration pipes in the side walls?

The only thing that should be in your way is what you have already talked about. I have the same kind of fridge and I do know that there aren't any pipes in the side wall they all feed in through the back and go towards the bottom of the fridge. and also go up the back wall of the fridge.

How do I remove the plastic drip tray from behind my Wesitnghouse Aurora Fridge Freezer.


we had a really bad smell coming from the back of our westinghouse aurora. and yes found it to be emanating from drip tray at the back. To remove this we had to undo 4 clips at the base of black motor thingy, that the plastic drip box sits on. Then we were able to lift whole thing a bit ,(10mm up and 50mm out, approx) so we could tilt everything forward and sweeze and wiggle tray out. then cleaned with bleach. also we unblocked hole inside fridge that allows water to drip into drip tray at back.

Beer tap


Good day,
If it has the condensor coil mounted on the back of the machine.
(black coil) then yes, VERY DANGEROUS. Refrigeration lines run at an angle from the bottom back of the machine at an angle and terminate at the bottom of the freezer door.
This applies to both sides. Hit one of those and your finished.

Leaking inside regrigerator


This is a common problem with top mount freezers and an easy repair .Remove the food and the ice maker from the freezer ( if equiped ) . Remove the rear freezer panel . Using a hair dryer , start in the middle , below the coils , defrosting , until you see the drain hole . Use hot water to help defrost the hole . Once water starts going thru the hole , use a small hose inserted into the hole , and blow thru , to remove any unseen debris in the drain line . Use an ALUMINUM or COPPER solid wire , 14-16 guage , with the insulation completely off , and insert one end into the drain hole as far as possible without any force . Wrap the other end about 1 1/2 to 2 turns , around the black rod (defrost heater) , above the hole . When refrig goes into defrost , the heat will transfer from the heater , to the wire , keeping the hole from freezing up again .

Westinghouse Wse6100WA side by side Fridge-icing up/not cooling


This is a bad design flaw, the fridhe is cooled by fan forced air from the freazer. Two ducts vent into and out of the fridge fron the freezer and ice can block them up (which you can find if you take off all the plastic at the top and back of the fridge).
Hence, when they block up, the frindge does not cool, hence the thermostat tells the fridge to keep running which makes the freezer colder and colder, making the blockage worse.

You need to not only fully defrost the freezer (which can be done quicker by removing the plastic panel in the back of the freezer and using a hairdryer) BUT also fully dry the fridge before turning it back on.
To stop it happening again, avoid puting unvovered liquids or hot items in the fridge. Also avoid leaving the fridge and freezer doors open for long especially in humid conditions. As I said, it's a bad design.

Westinghouse 410l fridge trips new RCD's in fusebox


Tripping an earth leakage would indicate a break down of insulation in the windings of the compressor, the possibility of a short circuit in the wiring system or the defrost element down to earth. I recommend you have a certified technician check it out before you have a fire. If the Hoover is in good condition there is no reason not to replace it. Rate me please.

Any lines that run through the cabinet should go up the back or and/or around the door. I would carefully cut a hole in the liner and pull the insulation out in small peices just to make sure.
