Question about Liebherr Freezers
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

Testimonial: "Roger, I cleaned them I think!! I'm assuming it is the long black coils on the back as I can't find any other coils. It worked again for a month and stopped again, I cleaned them again and nothing?"

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.

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.

Call you authorized repair person immediately. You dont want to loose your food.This could be simpley the thermostat and they usually have part on hand if you give them the heads up.

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
