Question about Liebherr Freezers

1 Answer

Liebherr comfort no frost not working

My 4 year old upright freezer seems to have stopped working. The temperature lights have gone out and it has been very very very slowly warming up over about a month. It sounds like it is working but isn't. I've now emptied it and turned it off. Is there anything I can do as I live way too far off the beaten track to take it anywhere and it will cost a fortune to get someone out to me.

Have you tried cleaning the condenser coil. They are located at the bottom of the unit and have a fan blowing them. As clean as possible is very important to operation. Let us know about this step. Roger

    Also, this time there is a heavy frost build up at the very top of the freezer.

    A heavy frost build up in the first inches of the coil could mean it is low on refrigerant now. The smaller copper line on the compressor should be hot and the larger one cold while it is running if the refrigerant level is close.

Check these two things first.  1.  Is there a thick frost buildup on the back panel at the bottom half of the freezer?  2.  Do you hear the fan running inside the freezer?  Let me know what you find.

SOURCE: Water pours down the back(Internally) ofmy Liebherr Frost Free Fridge freezer.

It is most likely a broken water tank in back wall of refrigerator section remove the crisper drawers you will see the tank it holds about 1.5 gal of water to keep it chilled for the dispenser. check all around it with the water on and someone getting water out of the dispenser at the same time check the seams closely. you should find the leak there let me know if not we may have to look into the water inlet valve

SOURCE: won't freeze

Is the compressor running the whole time? If so may have a problem with a refridgerant leak....check the compressor in the rear of unit, feel if its hot....may be as simple as a relay.

SOURCE: My Frigidaire upright freezer is only 4 years old & isn't working

freezers have safety devices to protect themselves. The compressor has an internal overload to keep it from overheating. some have external reset buttons and some do not. either way the cause must be corrected. if the freezer was low on refrigerant you would see signs of oil near the coils, tubing, or compressor. If there is no leak, it overheats when there is airflow restrictions(dirty coils) or a fan has stopped working. only a few screws keep you from seeing all there is to see. If it is clean and the fan is running, then the compressor may just be the culprit

I own a liebherr GNP2076 frost free upright frrezer


freezers do not normally go wrong too often so your going south is unusual.liebherr have given you a very good responce that some makers would not even dream of,i would recomend that you take up their offer as the chances of another problem are slim to zero...(in european law, it is you that has to prove that an appliance has a "inbuilt fault"to get anywhere.)

Frigidaire upright--"Hi temp" warning light on door. Don't know why freezer temperatures are so high (into 30s), food is thawing. Electrical seems to be fine. Have not noticed problems with door. New...


2 months old should still be under warenty.

Check the freezer fan by opening the freezer door and pressing the door switch and listing for the freezer fan sound. If no sound then the fan motor could be bad.

Look at the back wall too see if you have frost build up. If you do then you have a defrost problem.

If thees are not your problem you could have a seal system problem. (( freon leak ))

Does the light on the outside of freezer stay on . I bought a used freezer. It is a frigidaire commercial upright (frost free) Does the light on outside of freezer stay on all the time? I have no manual....


Normally there is a Green light showing that power is on

A Yellow one for fast freeze and a Red one for under temperature

The outer casing is well insulated from the inside otherwise the freezer motor would run none stop without cooling the contents so the temperature of the outside casing will reflect the room temperature not the intenal

Flashing power light on Kenmore upright freezer


If the yellow light is flashing it may mean that the 9 volt battery is dead.

On my Kenmore there's a small battery compartment on the bottom right of the unit - under the door.
